GH Monday: two largely superficial comments, a contemplation and a prop-related question. Comment One: Tracy was absolutely radiant. Plus, using the word “behoove” is always a positive.

Boy Band Video: Boy-band video meets K-mart couture meets Crocodile Dundee: The most Marlena has moved her face in years: I’m not even going to discuss that miraculous flight time, nor, indeed, the fact Anna’s “shoes were stuck in the sand” for longer than the total flight time.
