my life in my words


Worlds Collide

Can we just talk about how much I love LOST? Cause I do! Seriously, I brought back my Season One DVDs from home on my last vacation just because I NEEDED to have it ready for when I get really nostalgic after this final season is over. Look, a girl’s gotta be prepared!

I think part of the fun of it all is that since the beginning of LOST, I’ve been able to get together with a group of friends and watch it. When I was in Austin, every Wednesday night, my friends and I would pile into cars and drive over to the Matlock’s or over to the Lermster’s house and freak out together over the smoke monster, or over Arzt’s big blowup (you uh, got a little Arzt on ya’), and finding out who Benjamin Linus really was. :O I mean, we went all out, brought over tons of snacks, some Dharma themed, some not. We even had a party where we all dressed up like members of the show and wore T-shirts with our characters on the back. I mean really, between Simo getting hair extensions a’ la Sawyer and Tanner getting a perm so he could look like Sayid, I couldn’t have asked for better friends!

My name is Sayid Jarrah . . . who is this Tanner you speak of?

And now that I’m in Seattle, I’ve been lucky enough to be able to carry on the viewing party tradition with when I go over to the Harvey’s to watch it with Kyle, James, and Julie. We get to talk about our theories, what we’ve heard about upcoming episodes/the series as a whole, and just enjoying the company.
There’s just something about being able to watch your favorite TV shows with others that makes a show that much better.
I really can’t believe this is the last season of LOST. I am such a LOST geek. So much in fact, that when Damon Lindelof (co-creator of LOST) accepted my friend request on Facebook, I got ALL KINDS of geeked out giggly. It was bad, guys. Bad. Also, yesterday, I bought a shirt online from RIPT that has this on the front of it:

and I’m probably gonna wait by the mailbox like a sick puppy dog until I get it . . . this obsession is kind of ridiculous, I know.

Knowing that the final season is coming to and end and that there isn’t going to be a spin-off or a movie made about it, I just keep looking back at things through the year that are have come about because of LOST. Things like this:

i’m still pretending this isn’t REALLY the final season 😦

a picture of perfection . . . er . . . i mean,
of Matthew Fox as Dr. Jack Sheppard ;

Tell me that didn’t make you laugh! Thank you, Chatroulette jokes!

i can’t stop laughing at this

I gotta admit, if I were in an elevator with Matthew Fox,
I’d be like, “Oh my gosh, Amanda, what are you doing?!?” 😉
(sorry i couldn’t center the vid—blogger is misbehavin’)
In conclusion, I’m finally coming to the sad reality that I am just like all the folks in this video:

The Silence

Lost comes back on in 6 days!!

I was a bit worried at first that I was going to have to miss this season or watch it by myself on hulu . . . but that’s not how it’s goin’ down folks!

I talked to Alisa (my small group leader) last night and since our small group meets on Tuesday nights, I’ll be getting together with Alisa and her husby Dan, and Kyle (drummer for our worship team) and another friend to watch LOST on Wednesdays—recorded from Tuesday!

Ideally, I’d like to see it Tuesday night, but getting to be around friends AND watch LOST in it’s last season is SO much better! I’m really excited!

I’m also a bit worried. Here is what sucks about living on the west coast—everyone on the east coast gets to see things before I do! So all my friend to the east of me will be tweeting and FBing and texting up a storm about what’s going on. And I can’t just NOT check my twitter and FB! I’m too addicted to them! I don’t know if I could handle interweebz silence from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday night. It’s just TOO tempting!!

Ahhhh! I just don’t know what I’ll do. I may try it next week, just to see how strong I am against the forces of internet addiction. 😉 We’ll see how it goes.

In the meantime, the CHOPSTICK CHALLENGE is going great! In fact, today I accidentally left my chopsticks at work, so I ate at Panda Express for din, just so I could be sure to have chopsticks readily available. So now I have 2 sets!

She Paints Me Blue

LOOK! I ‘Avatarized’ myself!

This morning in Cafe Ladro, all the baristas were talking about Avatar. For the record, I haven’t seen it. I’ve heard & read mixed reviews. I will probably see it this weekend, though, just to form my own opinion. But hearing them talk about it cracks me up!

Mainly, their conversation was based on how fake Sam Worthington’s English accent was (since he’s from Australia) and how Michelle Rodriguez should have had all her scenes cut. They then jumped on the subject of LOST and how bad she sucked in LOST. I believe the exact quote was:

What was her name on that show again?

For those who can’t remember, it was Ana Lucia, and yeah she wasn’t my fave either. But now that they said that about her character in Avatar, the combination of my dislike of her LOST character and their dislike of her Avatar character will most likely make it hard for me to like her scenes in the movie.

In other news, I came across this yesterday when I was reading reviews. 😀

It’s David Letterman’s . . .

Top Ten Things Overheard In Line To See “Avatar”
10.“What a coincidence! I couldn’t find a woman to go with me either!”
9.“If I wear my 3-D glasses over my 2-D glasses, can I see in 5-D?”
8.“It’s nice that they didn’t overhype this thing”
7.“Last time I saw blue creatures for three hours, I drank too much Nyquil”
6.“It’s set in the year 2154 when America finally passes a health care bill”
5.“Which one is Chewbacca?”
4.“Based on a true story, right?”
3.“Hold on — Tiger’s texting me”
2.“Chuck Schumer just called the ticket taker a b—”
1.“$500 million for a movie — recession’s over!”

Go ahead, you can laugh. 😉
