TV characters I relate to

It may sound like a silly thing, but I think everyone relates to television characters. I mean it is normal to see yourself or who you want to be in a character and that is your attachment to the show. It isn't a blurring of reality and fiction. It is seeing traits in characters that you identify with or you wish you could attain yourself. If a show is well written, it should have that appeal and human element.
Alex Eames—Law and Order Criminal Intent: I know how awful this show is. I couldn't watch the Logan and Wheeler episodes (and don't even get me started on Jeff Goldblum)…not because they can't act or anything like that but because the show is so awful I can only rationalize watching it on Goren and Eames weeks. It is very much so my guilty pleasure. Eames gets the short end of the stick. Goren gets all the drama, crazies and gets to be the Sherlock Holmesish know it all. Eames is relegated to be his Watson, but she gets some CLASSIC lines off in the process.

Time capsule time

When I was in fourth grade we put together a time capsule. We were supposed to open it in 2000. I'm not sure what ever came from it. For all I know the bronze boxes are still floating around Woodmore Elementary School...or maybe some people from my class did open them. I remember thinking how cool it would be to open it. Now I'm uncertain of what the meaning would be. If I had to make another one, I'm not sure what all I would add, but here is a start.

While admittedly these have run themselves out of business, it is a dying media type.
