A world away

I'm enjoying watching Felicity on DVD and relating to the characters with eerie similarities.
Of course, their situations are pure drama, whereas mine seem to just linger with no real revelations. I try to change that, and then hang on for replies like I hang on for life. It's only been 24 hours and I'm thinking I'll never hear a word. Maybe I am dramatic. A friend and I talked about that just the other night. In the middle of the night-he said, "we can be so dramatic." I agreed without any hesitation at all. We are. It's just the way.

Ben Covington
might be my dream man. Unlike many shows of its kind, Felicity recognized that its characters weren't fully formed: they experimented, they made mistakes, they contradicted themselves and surprised you. Plus, it takes me back.

As I watch episode after episode, inevitably, I end up crying, at least at some point. I get so emotional over these things.
I know it's just a television show-
but it's not like that.

I liked that show too... specially Scott Speedman. He was dreamy yummy... he was yummy in Underworld.

And we all are dramatic. It is the nature of emotion.

That was such an amazing tv show! Ben was every girl's dream. Felicity and My So-Called Life are two tv shows that people could really relate to.
I recently bought My So-Called Life on DVD and 10 years later (or is it more?!), it's still so relevant... and Jordan Catalano is still oh so dreamy.. ;)

It's true, Jordan Catalano is still pretty amazing...My So-Called Life is definitely another classic. I may have to get that box set too ;)

I can't seem to figure out how these comments work on here (I'm a new blogger) BUT I wanted to say that I like reading your blog =) AND that I love Felicity but had forgotten all about it! It may be the next set of DVDs I get. (And if this is my third comment.. please delete the previous two hehe)

You're all good Tracy...only one comment came through, hehe. Yay! I'm so excited that you're blogging now! :)

Good! Cause I was messing something up and was worried you were going to get a hundred of them. =) So far I'm liking the blogging thing, even though I'm not that interesting, it's nice to just put things out there.
