I have been watching the Young and the Restless since I was in my momma's belly. My grandmother stopped working so she could take care of her grandchildren while her children worked, so every day at lunch time we ate and we watched.
The Newmans, The Abbots.. Drewcilla and Neil. Old Malcolm (Yay), New Malcom (boo - Eddie Winslow?) Cricket and Danny Romalotti. Phyliss.. Sheila Carter!!! (who died a thousand times only to return again..)
Old and new characters have kept me waiting with bated breath.. day after day (yeah I said it!). I scheduled my college classes around them, set my VCR to record them, and DVR'ed when my grown up schedule wouldnt allow. And to this day, once I've finished my day and wrestled these munchkins into slumber, I snuggle up to my iPad and get that episode in.. It relaxes me and lets me know that all is well in Genoa City.. and in Bunnieville..
I like to consider myself a Y&R Historian. I've been considering adding it to my credentials:
Bunnie Hilliard, MBA, Y&R Historian
has a nice ring to it...
Here's to your 10,000th episode today!! I will be tuning in for the next 10,000. (Who are you to judge me any way?!)
