I wish I were in Kindergarten. Then I could take a nap and it would be acceptable.

I'm not doing a LOST reaction post. I will, eventually. But I won't for a little while simply because I don't want to spoil things for someone who hasn't had a chance to watch it yet. I will say that I loved it. Gzilla hated it. But I loved it, and the more time goes by, the more I love it.

I haven't stopped since getting back from Ireland. I landed on Wednesday, stayed up until 10:30 at night (after essentially waking up at midnight after about 3 hours of sleep) so that I could catch up on the penultimate episode of LOST. Thursday I was back at work, and Friday I worked both jobs. Saturday I couldn't sleep in because I had to go to a wedding, and I still needed a dress and a present for the couple. After seriously debating whether I should go to the mall or wear the dress I've already worn to two weddings or the jersey knit dress that might be too casual for this very laid-back wedding, I decided to bring the dress already worn to two weddings AND go to the mall. I went into Anthropologie, and while I LURVE their clothes normally don't buy then because they are EX-PEN-SIVE. I found this ADORABLE navy sun dress with a cream layer underneath that peaked out because of the eyelits in the navy? Adorable. Fit perfectly. Half price. DONE.

The wedding was beautiful... it was a non-religious ceremony at a country club, and the actual ceremony took place on the pier of a lake. The bride's dress was made by a costume designer that they work with (the couple is theatre people) and before the wedding started the groom gets on the mic and says "For those of you who work with me, you will find this funny. For those who don't work with me, oh well. 10 minutes to places for the ceremony...10 minutes to places." That's what stage managers say before start of every show. So all of us theatre people responded how you would if you were in the production. "THANK YOU, 10!"

Needless to say, I'm exhausted. I'm actually worried that at some point this week I'm going to pass out at work. Maybe I'll be able to go home sick one day and take like a 4 hour nap or something. A nap sounds good.

I stil don't know what I think about Lost....I watched it alone last night, as Grouper was gone on business. After it was over, I just kinda sat on the couch for a minute, absorbing. And I'm still stumped. And I'm still not sure I liked it. But I'm not sure I hated it, either. I just don't know. It definitely was NOT what I expected. One thing I was happy about? I love Benjamin Linus more than ever. :)

Well, like G'zilla, John is pissed. The things he wanted answers to were never answered. I'm not sure how I feel. I think I need to see it again. So far, 3 different people have gotten 3 totally different takes on the show.
I understand when the 6th Season DVD comes out in August, more questions will be answered. All I know is I want it. and I want the other 5 seasons too.

I'll discuss it for real once you get your reaction posted.
