I love the Paul Potts album too. I thought he was the sweetest unassuming person when I watched him stick it to Simon Cowell on The Greatest Talent in Britain TV show. I just got chills when I seen this man stand there so frightened and open his mouth and that glorious voice came out from nowhere. I was jumping up and down and crying too. I hope he has a lot of success and happiness in his new career.

I would like Gerry in a black suit, white suit wet suit or preferably no suit au natural baby...but will take him any way he comes at me...Cant wait for PSILY or Nims. This is getting to be too much to wait for for too long a time....Dont want to wish my life away, but c'mon Dec......

I know the waiting game stinks!! Atleast he's making movies. It bites when you're a fan of someone and they haven't put something out in 2 1/2 years. Or when they do make something they come out within weeks of each other. I'm not complaining about that, though.

AAAAWWWW Sue....I am hoping and praying that things get better for you and the "stuff" going on right now Sweetie. Peggy has filled me in on a little. I wish that I could say to you ...that I really like flying and I would love nothing more than to get on a plane to the West coast right now to hang out with a very special and maaaaaybe sometimes a little wacky (and I mean that lovingly) friend!!! Sides I wish I could be there just to be there....you know what I mean! We could just talk and talk and talk and talk and...............................you get the idea! :D BUT I HATED FLYING!!! I faced my fear and :bonk::bonk: I'm still scared to death of flying.

Love to you all and of course lot's a {{{{{HUGS}}}} Fran

So what does this mean? That instead of flying you're going to be coming to Vegas via Amtrak or what?

Frannie, my dear Fran, I truly believe one of these days we are going to get to hang out and talk and talk...two wacky middle aged women if ever there were two! Peggy has been a real rock for me these days...bless her heart!

Susan, thank you for the heads up on Las Vegas Baby!

Ann, you are working way too hard woman!

Anna, what a lovely place (I should say what another lovely place!). I'm so glad you got a free meal.....and without any of that tea spilling on you or your friends! Maybe when I come over there we can go and cause a waiter to trip or something (just kidding)!

Stef has really out did herself with these new avatars from PS I Love You! I'm thinking of changing mine every day! I love them all!

Nancy, are you settled in yet? I'm thinking about you and praying for you dear.

[[[off to watch the PS I Love You trailer again....oh my, I'm not sure I'm going to make it till December]]]

Yeah, the original. Gah, it's so hard.

Yeah, I've read it...I own it. It's a very interesting read, and I quite enjoyed it. Warning though, you think ALW's Raoul is whiney...? Ohhh-ho, just you wait! :D

I reckon I'll struggle through the Phantom just to say I've read it. HEHE! Actually, I really do want to read it. I've never really had issues picking up a book and reading it though I did force myself to finish Wuthering Heights and it took me forever to read East of Eden. But hey, I did it. And I'm going to finish the Phantom, also. Thanks for the warning about Raoul.

I didn't much care for Leroux' "Phantom of the Opera", but I liked Susan Kay's "Phantom" a lot. I especially thought the ending was very touching. I just finished "Angel of the Opera" by Sam Siciliano. Sherlock Holms meets the Phantom. Interesting storyline and it had a happy ending. Sherlock, of course, saved the day! Type in Phantom of the Opera on Amazon and there are numerous books written about "what happened next". The best ones are written by our very own GALS authors! They make me proud to be a GAL! Note: I have also read some really pathetic Phantom books and one that turned out to be porn! Use caution when buying!

Hope everyone is having a great evening and staying out of trouble! Hugs to everyone!

Hi Sue, and anyone else who might pop by. I'm at work (yuck) but I have a huge deadline (actually 2 of them) looming for October 1 and the only hope I have of meeting them is to put in some weekend time. Hubby is off at a pow-wow for the weekend so this was the perfect time for me to try to get some work done.

So I guess that means I had best be off and working!!

Hugs

Susan

Sue

Susan, I love the theme of this floor. It is nice remember and visualize that original first contact with Gerry. I like many, many GALS discovered Gerry in POTO. It was a unique experience for me because I discovered Erik, the Phantom for the first time through this movie. I fell in love with Erik, the Phantom, the Opera Ghost through this movie and Webber's incredible music.

I had always loved the music and songs, but I had never grasped the story until I saw POTO. I became complete and full immersed in the story of Erik. I was so absorbed that it was months before I could see Gerry, the actor and the wonderful, funny, sexy man, beneath his portrayal of Erik.

My first enamored moment was the same one as so many others GALs have expressed,

however, the reason I kept returning to see the movie again again was because of Erik,

I've been slammed on other sites for saying this.... but I don't care for Leroux's book at all. He had a beautiful concept, and some fabulous characters, but the style of the book does not hold my interest. It meanders all over the place, with too many unimportant and boring characters, and I feel it wastes a lot of time with side plots, when we really want to know more about Erik.

There are some beautifully written passages, and I enjoy the Phantom's humor... one can see the seeds of ALW's Erik, but the book leaves me cold. Raoul makes me crazy, he is such a wimp, who FAINTS when he sees the Phantom's real face, and if you think Christine is annoying in the ALW version... the Leroux Christine will make you want to scream. She is simply too weird, and I just don't feel for her.

For me, I think it's the writing style that gives me no emotional core to care about. I mean, I fell in love with Phantom in Leroux's story, but even he can't make me love the book.

I really loved certain things about Kay's PHANTOM.... she wrote her book after seeing Michael Crawford in the role on Broadway, but I don't like the fact that the Erik and Christine portion of the book are so short, and almost rushed, IMO.

Frankly, I'm so addicted to Erik, that after I've finished writing my version, I'll probably read every Phantom novel out there!

OK, I will say it - when I read Leroux's version I started thinking he should have called it The PERSIAN of the Opera because I swear that character has more time in the book than Erik or Christine. Raoul was a complete wimp, and the amount of time spent in that stupid trap room that Erik built annoyed the heck out of me. Also, the style of writing was not an easy flow for me.

I did like Kay's Phantom much, much more. I loved all the backstory she gave about Erik and his life. I liked her Christine more than Leroux's and despite how much some readers hated the outcome, I liked it. For those who haven't read it and like Phantom phiction I recommend it.

That's it. I'm taking Leroux's version back and hunting down the other. Besides, I already know what happens. Or do I? Sounds like this one ends differently. Can't wait to read it.
