So, it's no lie that I love LOST. And yes, if you're really into LOST, you always, ALWAYS write it this way: LOST. All caps, all the time. And I'm REALLY excited because it hasn't been on since MAY and I find myself thinking about it from time to time. It's so well-written, unpredictable, and DEEP. So many layers--and so many blogs. It's ridiculous how many people have devoted much of their time to blogging about the physical, the metaphysical, the mysterious, the scientific, the magical, the real-life wonders of LOST. I must admit, that when I first started watching, I read some of these things. Most of it was gobbelty-goop, but it was fascinating nonetheless. I can't even make fun of those people because if I had that much time, I'd watch LOST all day. I LOVE LOST.

Here's a game I like to play: Find the people in your life who would be a character on LOST. Like, Elise would totally be Kate. My friend John would totally be Jack Shepard. My friend Sam is definitely Sawyer, but less angry and tortured. Claire is Claire because she's preggers, and they have the same name. Not sure who Locke would be. See what I mean? It's fun! Sometimes it changes.

And this is hilarious. If you watch it, you will laugh your pants off.
