Ok, so anyone else Lost?

Ok, uhm, once again **spoiler alert**

I'm not gonna give a full out recap 'cause I've seen some other good ones: here and here

I'm confused and not gonna have a great summer, fall and winter trying to figure out what this all means.

  1. So they got off the island?
  2. Was is just Kate and Jack or everyone?
  3. Who was in the coffin?
  4. Did it(the coffin) seem small to anyone else?
  5. What would make it inappropriate for Jack to get a ride with his ex?
  6. Who is the "he" Kate is getting back to?
  7. Shouldn't she be in jail?
  8. Isn't Jack's father dead?
  9. Why, oh, why didn't Charlie close the door behind him?
  10. Locke is back!!!
  11. Why didn't Ben look all that surprised when he heard that Tom hadn't killed Sayid, Jin and Bernard?
  12. Hurley is AWESOME!!!
  13. So is Sayid! He killed that guy with his feet!?!
  14. I'd love to know the translation of what Jin said when they threatened to shoot him.
  15. Where and what is the temple?
  16. Does it have anything to do with the 4 toed foot statue?
Tell me what you think. I'm confused and intrigued. Nothing new there.

Lost Again?

First of all let me say OH MY GOSH! Major ***spoiler*** if you didn't see Lost last night.

That was one heck of an episode! My favorite character is poor Hurley. Favorite quote from last night: "Yeah, I love you too. Whatever."

I was bawling as Charlie cowboyed up and went off to die. I thought the exchange between him and Claire was lovely.

I don't like Juliette. I think she's gonna sell them up the river. I'm still not sure what's up with Jack. He's not the same since his week with the others. He's always been a nice guy but I just don't trust him anymore. Sorry.

I've read that the girls that Charlie saved in the alley was Sayid's lady. And that one of the ladies in the Looking Glass was Ben's childhood friend. It's so weird the way they crossed paths.

I heard somewhere that TV Guide predicted that there would be 5 major deaths before the end of this season. Here's my prediction for the red shirts:

  1. Bernard
  2. Rose
  3. Juliette
  4. Desmond
  5. John Locke(I still don't believe he's dead).
So sad. . .Anyways. I cannot wait till next week. What will we do all summer? I think I might freak out from withdrawal. Usually when that happens I cope by watching the 4400. It's usually on during the summer.

Shows I'm gonna miss this summer:
  1. Lost
  2. Grey's Anatomy
  3. American Idol
  4. Heroes
I'm sure we'll find something else to watch but those are the best right now. Maybe I'll get a life. lol.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I know it's not till tomorrow. But don't we deserve to hear it everyday?

To all you crazy ladies . . .
  • With offspring clinging to you at all times
  • Who are raising your grandchildren(my parents, don't ask)
  • Who came before us (Thanks to our Grandmothers)
  • Who are raising "little Mommies" right now
  • Whose children have left the home but never your hearts
  • Who are raising your children as a single parent(prayers)
  • Who are raising your children while in the military(thanks and prayers)
  • Who live with a mountain of __________ (insert your fav: laundry, dishes, clutter)
  • You.
I'm sure I've forgotten something. But God knows who you are and He loves you very much. You make a huge difference even when it feels no one is listening. God hears your prayers in the night for those crazy kids. And those just as desperate ones in the daytime when you think you don't have what it takes.

And just in case no one tells you: Thanks for everything you do! Happy Mothers Day!

Lost Anyone??? Warning: spoiler

Major spoiler if you haven't seen last nights Lost.

spoiler alert

Okay so Locke is what. . .dead? Curiousity did kill the cat. Or so we think. They can't kill Locke.

Can they?

And Ben. . . You think you know the guy. Jeez. No wonder he wanted Locke to kill his own father. He thinks they stink. And he's gonna wipe out the Survivors just because?

And what on earth is Jacob? And why does he need help?

I'm just as Lost as ever. I love that show.

My tv favorites

I don't think I've blogged about my obsession with Lost or Grey's Anatomy. So here goes.

I LOVE Lost. I've been hooked since the beginning. I've never missed an episode and I've been known to watch re-runs and re-re-runs. I've checked out all the sites. I go to sleep every Wednesday night wondering how it's all gonna play out.

I am sure that years from now I'll still think about how Walt appeared in the woods and how Mr. Ecko was killed by a giant puff of black smoke. As much as I love it I also am afraid of it. It comes on less than 2 hours before I go to bed. So I lay there thinking about it and it kind of freaks me out. I mean it's quite a ride! You are on the edge of your seat the whole show and then "bam" it's over. But it's never really over. You leave with more questions than answers. It's crazy and I love it. period.

Now Grey's is different. I love it and I watch it. But if I miss it, I miss it. I'll catch it online. I love the narration. And the characters are rich and pretty well developed. I wonder if it's possible to have such a great show with all the twists and turns and not have so much sex. I mean it's like the only way people in Seattle can interact is to end up in bed. I think it's the rain. (No offense to those who really live in Seattle. I love rain. And I've heard the coffee is the best. Not that I like coffee.)

Anyways, the point is the show is great but I think it's a guilty pleasure for me. In that, I feel guilty at seeing so much pleasure.

Another of my favs is Desperate Housewives. Another very guilty pleasure. I can't say that I've seen every episode or visited the message boards. But I know that every Sunday night I can turn on ABC and expect to see lots of scandal. Cause I really don't have much scandal in my life. Thank you, God!

The housewives crack me up. And the narrator is awesome. Her name is Brenda Strong and she use to be on my favorite show Everwood. sigh. I miss it so much. Which brings me to the following memorium for cancelled shows that I loved and that have passed on:

(No particular order, except the first which is the most awesome sitcom of all time.)
  1. NewsRadio(poor Phil)
  2. Frasier
  3. Everwood
  4. Wings(It was funny)
  5. The Cosby show
  6. Moonlighting
  7. Cheers
  8. The Wonder Years
  9. Space Above and Beyond(For my husband)
  10. Star Trek Enterprise
  11. Hidden Hills(where the heck did it go? It was a decent show.)
To be continued when I recall others. . .

Smog, Heat and the Zoo don't mix!

Okay, so it's now Thursday and I haven't posted since Monday. Well I have an excellent excuse.

Tuesday was our home school day at Zoo Atlanta. The kids had a very short fun time. We arrived at 10:45 and finally got parked(don't even get me started) at 11:30. I knew we had to be out of there at 2 cause I pick up kids in the afternoon. So 2 1/2 hours in 90 degree weather with a severe smog alert at a smelly zoo. I left on time. Picked up the other kids. Arrived at home, called DH at work and begged for help. I then spent the rest of Tuesday and that night and part of Wednesday praying to the porcelain throne.

Needless to say I don't do well in the heat. I've never done well in the heat. I've done some research online and I've seen some references to sun allergy and heat exhaustion. I think the later is the case. I get really hot and start feeling like I'm gonna pass out. I have a really bad headache, chills and nausea. It usually puts me out of commision for about 24 hours. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband who comes to rescue me.

So anyways, there's my excuse.
