Today is The Day.

And you thought yesterday was the day.

Nope, let me correct you. Today is the day. The Day. The Big Day.

After an eight-month wait....

Lost is baaaaaaaaaccccccccckkkkkkkkk!!! (Screamed in my best Jack imitation, a la "We have to go baaaacccckkkk to the island!")

I rarely am obsessed with anything in pop culture (the rest of you can have your gossip magazines and latest fashions and McDreamys), but I am absolutely obsessed with Lost. (Like I nerdily read all the updates online, dig for rumors, study all the mysteries, have my own theories sort of obsessed. I know, it's sad. But, it's sad in a good way.)

It returns tonight with its big premiere and I can't wait.

Now, if I can just get through the rest of this stuff that wants to keep me away from relishing The Big Day. Like...

This article that's got to get done because it's due tomorrow.

This talk that I've got to get written and practiced.

These papers that have got to be graded.

These book chapters that desperately need work.

After essentially "taking the day off" yesterday, I've got so much to get done today.

But my reward for getting it all done will be a good one...

Lost.

Bring it on, baby.

Hey Girl,

If you get all that done, you DESERVE to watch your favorite show. Maybe you even deserve to watch it with a chocolate cupcake. LOL.

~hippo hugs~

Adrienne said...

OHhhhhhhhhh I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!

Cheryl Wray said...

Hippo--You're right! And, you know? A Lost cupcake might be in order!! LOL

Adrienne--I know YOU can't wait either!!!!!!!!! (And I'll be at church, so I have to DVR it and watch it when I get back. I'll be up until 11!! LOL)

Gretchen said...

Okay...I'm not a LOST girl. I'm just not. Never caught the mania, and now, feel like it's too convoluted to catch up. HOWEVER, I do love House with that same amound of passion, so I feel you. I do. ;) I hope tonight is all you're hoping for.

Nina Diane said...

you and me both.......I just can't wait to see LOST!!!!!

Ms.L said...

LOL,I love your excitement!
I need to get excited about something..cause it looks so
FUN!

Kathy said...

I think I have only watched lost ONCE! And not even the whole show. I was also like that about House & Ghost Whisperer, but now I just wait until the season comes out on dvd, that way I don't have to deal with commercials and reruns! LOL!

Becky Welch said...

we are so there - but we will have to watch it online because we have church tonight at the same time - the devil is working!

Faye said...

Cheryl....I am just as excited as you!!! I really hope that some answers become obvious....but I have all the Season sets and am ready to go!

Cheryl Wray said...

Gretchen--Gary LOVES "House." It's his fave show, so I can identify (a little bit) with your love for it.

Nina--Woo Hoo!!!

Ms. L--Life is at its best when you have things to be excited about!!

Kathy--That's the way to do it, especially if you haven't seen Lost from the beginning. There are so many connections between episodes that you have to see them all. I suggest you start buying the DVDs and start now on season 1. :-)

Cheryl Wray said...

Becky--Yeah, I'm running home from church to make it back in time. If I time it right, I can roll into the house right as it's starting. :-)

Faye--I have heard that a lot of things are answered this season, starting tonight! Yay! I can't wait!

Andy said...

super excited too.
check out my blog
i left a link that i got from a friends of a cool site for time travel ideas on lost. it's a long read but interesting.

Linda said...

enjoy!!!!! I'll be working my second job.

Auburn Kat said...

I've never watched Lost, but tonight I watched the recap show and I'm hooked! Now I'm watching the newest episode and will have to go and rent all of the other seasons!

CINNIBONBON said...

LOL..crazy girl..

Ok I have to confess, but you have to promise we can still be buds?!!
I've never watch a single episode of Lost..

shhhh
LOL

Phats said...

I guess I am "Lost" I just don't understand the fascination with this show. Was it good?

Cheryl Wray said...

Andy--Ooh, fun, I'll come check it out.

Linda--I did!!!

Kat--Yay!!!!! It's one of those shows that you must watch every show of. Get the DVDs, you can also read recaps online. Of course, now you know that time travel is all part of it so it will sorta ruin the early-on stuff when you really don't know what's going on. But...you'll still LOVE it!!!

Cinni--That's okay. I forgive you! LOL

Phats--Oh my..it was SO GOOD!!!!!! But I get that some people don't like it; it's one of those shows that you really love if you've been involved with it from the beginning.

Monogram Queen said...

I hope you enjoy it muchly my dear! I will pass along the Davey info to my Dad. He always wanted to know if it's true Bobby & Judy re-married. He HAS internet but he'd rather have me ask someone because he doesn't believe what he reads. Does that make ANY sense??!

Stephenie said...

Haha Cheryl, I must say, I have never watched Lost. I've been tempted to, but never took the time to sit and watch it. Apparently it's good for you to be this wrapped up in it!

Maria Hammon said...

I must watch Lost! It sounds like a really cool show to watch! :D
