This definitely was a strange show, but in my opinion, one of the best HBO has ever had. The concept of the show was bizarre to begin with, but then so much more evolved from it. I have fond memories of watching Six Feet Under during my high school years. I remember always being so shocked at storylines or how they left the ends of episodes. I also really liked how each episode began with a death - sort of an ironic "start" - and then somehow that death intertwined with the storyline for the episode. Definitely innovative, although the last few seasons got a little too strange, and I didn't even watch the last season - maybe I'll rent the DVDs.

The series finale of Men In Trees is tonight on ABC, although it should have only been the season finale. This show is so cute and funny, and really isn't like anything else on TV now. It's set in a small town in Alaska, and follows a NYC writer (Anne Heche), as she lives and loves in Elmo, Alaska. It also follows characters in NYC, like Marin's publisher, who visited in Elmo and fell in love with the snow-plow man. The show is quirky and cute, and I'm definitely sad tonight is the end.

Most people will disagree with me, but I was glad the Sopranos was cancelled. I didn't watch the show and frankly, I was sick of all the hype. Everyone would talk about it, and I never thought it was all that great from the few episodes I caught.

I enjoyed the OC, but I didn't even watch the last season because it was pointless. After Marissa was killed, the show was over anyway. It was time for it to be over and done with.

I don't really care either way because I don't watch Soaps. But I do think it's interesting that this was cancelled. You don't often hear about soap operas being cancelled. These shows last decades! What was it about Passions that made the network cancel?

I think this is the one that kills me the most. Gilmore Girls is one of my all-time favorite shows, I guess probably because I could relate to the characters so much. I was Rory Gilmore - ambitious, hard-working college student, just trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, and living through regular day-to-day issues, alongside my mother/best friend, who helps me along the way and supports me no matter what. I watched Gilmore Girls every week to see what happened to Rory and to see how it matched up with what I was going through. In a way, I felt lost when Gilmore Girls was cancelled - who was I to model myself after anymore? Ok, maybe that's a little dramatic, but I was sad - really, really sad.


Now I watch Gilmore re-runs everyday on the ABC Family channel, just hoping to find a lost episode that I might have missed. I could watch every episode over and over again (and I do), and I really never get sick of the storylines. Gilmore Girls should come back - pick up right where they left off. *sigh* A girl can dream, can't she?

I just found out this ABC show will not be returning next season and I have to say I am pretty upset. This was one of my favorite new shows, and I know a fair amount of people who enjoyed it as well. I wonder why this was cancelled? It had a great cast (Lucy Liu, Frances O'Connor), and was a fun show to watch. I also think it was a good show because it showed women in high-powered positions - a publishing exec, the COO of a hotel chain, a marketing exec and an investment banker - and how they could be in these positions of power, yet still maintain families, boyfriends (or girlfriends as was the case for one), and still have time to meet for dinner or drinks with friends. Hmm, that's pretty depressing that it was cancelled after only one season. Oh well.

Oh Everwood...I think about this show a lot - and cry because there will be no more. Everwood was such a great show that the whole family could watch. The storylines were great and so much more could have happened with so many of the characters. It was a pretty typical WB family drama, but I just enjoyed watching week to week.


I haven't seen Gregory Smith, who played Ephram, on much of anything since the show was cancelled. But Emily Van Camp, who played Amy, is now on Brothers & Sisters. I love watching her every week on this show, but it does remind me of her days on Everwood, which is now a sad thing.

I have to admit, I watched 7th Heaven. But I was happy when it was finally cancelled. It was enough already. There were just no more storylines left. How many more children could they have? How many more of those kids could get married, or pregnant or in trouble with the law? It was just enough - actually it was more than enough. It should have gotten cancelled 3 seasons before it did.

I try not to think about this one too much because obviously germs are everywhere and they are inescapable. But when I stop and think about them, it definitely does freak me out a little bit. I try to use antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers when I know I'm in public areas. There are a lot of unsanitary people out there who don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom, etc., so you just don't know what you could be touching - ew

This one definitely freaks me out. We have elevators at work that are constantly out of order, so I try to avoid them most of the time. But sometimes I have to take them and I always feel a little worried that they'll stop and I'll get stuck. It definitely is part of my claustrophobia, because it's the idea that you can't see a way out, which makes me panic. In my mind, I know someone will eventually come and get me out, but it's in the moment that I don't think I'd be able to be rational about it.

I can't really explain my fear of heights, but it's there. Even today, I was on the 2nd floor of the mall and I couldn't get too close to the middle railing without feeling nervous. I can't go on outdoor rides at amusement parks, or ever even think about doing crazy things like jumping out of an airplane or bungee jumping, but I'm not really one of those people who wishes they could. I'm pretty content without roller coasters or bungees. In everyday activities it is tough though - going on clear-sided escalators makes me nervous even. Oh well - what are you going to do?

The Beach Boys was the first concert I ever went to. I was 6 years old. I remember enjoying it, but it went way past my bedtime and all I really wanted to do was sleep My dad forced me to stand up and dance, and I think I cried - or at least whined a whole lot. But now looking back, the Beach Boys are great. So many classic songs - ones that are catchy, fun and good to dance to.

Ahh I love going to the beach in the summer. Since I live on Long Island, I'm lucky enough to have the beach 15 minutes from my house. I always look forward to Memorial Day to have the official opening of the beach. I actually don't even go in the water, but there's something about laying in my beach chair, on the sand, soaking in the sun and eating watermelon that is just so great.

I love going to concerts at an outdoor venue during the summer. We have a big theatre on the beach on Long Island - Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre. There isn't a great line-up this summer, so I don't know if I'll go at all, but past years I've always enjoyed seeing a show there. It's warm, with a cool breeze from the water, and it's just a great atmosphere.

I doubt anyone else agrees, but Hall & Oates is my all-time favorite musical group. They were a bit before my time, but my parents always listened to them when I was growing up and I of course heard the classics on the radio - Rich Girl, I Can't Go For That, Maneater. One year, my parents brought me to one of their concerts, and I was just blown away. They were so great live, and still after so many years, they sounded great. Now, my mom and I go to their concerts every year (we're sort of groupies), I listen to their CDs all the time, I'm a member of their fan club, and I have no trouble admitting I'm just a little obsessed with H&O.;

I never got to experience drive-in movies, and that makes me very sad. I see them in movies and on tv, but there really weren't any in my area when I was growing up. I remember we once tried to go to the ONE drive-in movie theatre we knew of on Long Island when I was very young. My brother and I wore our pajamas, and we brought tons of snacks. As we drove there, we hit traffic and realized it was the line to get into the lot for the theatre! It was so full that traffic was out to the main road. Needless to say, we never made it in, and I never did see a drive-in movie. Boo hoo for me.

I agree with Molfan - I think dogs are more receptive to affection, while cats have to initiate it themselves. With my golden, I like that pretty much whenever I feel the need for a little cuddling, she's very willing to snuggle with me. For a cat, I think that would be a bit harder to do.

I don't know if dogs are more intelligent than cats, but it seems they can be trained easier, so I guess that might translate to intelligence. Different species, different levels. At the same time, I've met some pretty dumb dogs as well - not mine, of course; she's perfect.

Oh Lehigh, my alma mater. Unforunately, I can't give it more than 3 stars, although it seems on here, all schools are falling below the 3 rating, which sort of confuses me. Anyway, Lehigh is overall a solid school, and the campus is really, really beautiful (it's the reason I applied there in the first place). Academically speaking, Lehigh's engineering program is its highest accomplishment, but they are trying to become a more well-rounded school in recent years. I was in the college of arts and sciences, and while I do feel I got a great education and learned a lot, we were not given the same opportunities as those in the engineering school (or even as those in the business school). We had huge job fairs, but there were so few employers looking for someone in an arts & sciences major, that there was little reason for any of us to attend (other than to feel defeated). I do feel that I got a well-rounded education, being that as a journalism major, I had to complete courses in sciences and math. As in any school, I think it is what you make it - you can take challenging courses outside your major, or you can breeze through taking just what you need.


On the social side, Greek life reigns supreme. Being in a sorority never appealed to me, so at times I have to say I felt left out of the social scene. Sure, I did my fair share of partying - I went up to frats on "The Hill," went to house parties off campus, and went to the bars when I turned 21 - but there were so many activities centered around frats and sororitites, that I did feel like I was missing out just because it wasn't my thing. Alcohol is huge there, although after our #3 party rating, the school and police have been cracking down in the last 3 years or so.


Football was also a big thing at Lehigh, especially our rivalry with Lafayette College. As Magellan said, that football game is huge every year and always a ton of fun. Of course, most of that fun involves waking up at 6 a.m. to start drinking, then drinking some more at tailgates (which are really some of the most crazy times I've ever had), and then sort of glazing over the game, taking a nap, then going out to party hard.


There are a lot of very intelligent people at Lehigh, and also a lot of really rich, snobby kids who just want to party hard and sleep through class. Like I said, the experience is what you make of it, who you meet, and the memories you make. Did I love Lehigh? No. Did I get a good education and enjoy my time there? Definitely.

I've never had the ciao bella ice cream (I think they call it gelato, although I'm sure it's nothing like real gelato), but I have had the sorbet. Mango, orange and coconut are my favorites. On a really hot day, these are really, really refreshing, but I can't really have too much of it. A few spoonfuls is really enough. Anything after that is sort of sickening to me.

If I'm ever in the mood for coffee-flavored ice cream, the starbucks brand is what I would go for. The low-fat latte is so refreshing and delicious. I know my dad also enjoys the starbucks ice cream bars, that are just OK for me.

Edy's is my favorite brand of ice cream from the supermarket. I'm a bit of an ice cream fanatic, but try as much as I can to have low-fat types. The edy's light ice creams taste just as good as the regular, in my opinion. They have so many different varieties to choose from and are always coming out with fun, new flavors. My absolute favorite is the light Peppermint - the only problem is it's only around in the winter. I wish I could have it year-round.

I check mlb.com almost everyday. It's well laid out, and makes it easy for me to check the scores of games in progress (right on the left side of the home page). Plus, with one click, I can see where my favorite teams (let's go mets!) stand so far in the season. There are also links to every major league team's web site. A+ for mlb.com!

The combination of the soft coconut and the rich, dark chocolate is really, really good. It's a great treat.
