I'm sure you've heard of this TV show. LOST. I had, and I read on my friend Hillarie's blog that she was into it. Since Hillarie is someone I love--and because I tend to trust her opinion on TV shows since she is a fellow Office fan--I decided to look on abc.com and see if they had episodes to watch on there. Just to see if I liked it, and because I was bored. Well, they definitely had all the episodes from all 4 seasons on there for me to watch. So I started at the very beginning and watched one, where the plane crashes. I wasn't hooked. But I thought to myself, "I wasn't hooked on the Office after the first episode either--maybe I should give it one more chance." So I watched another one, this time with Andrew. And although I wasn't in LOVE with the show, I kept watching more episodes. And gradually, we were hooked. Yesterday we watched several together and stayed up till almost midnight watching it. I think we've formed a new addiction.
The problem is that we ended last night's Lost marathon on a scary episode, where pregnant Claire gets kidnapped by this freaky Ethan guy, who wants to probably steal her baby for some reason. Well, I don't do well with scary things, especially at night. Hence, I got about 3 hours of sleep last night. I could NOT stop thinking about it and running it over in my mind and being scared for Claire. Claire, who is NOT REAL and who is not really in life threatening danger, and most of the country is like years ahead of me on Claire's story, but once again, she is NOT REAL...she cost me a night's sleep. On top of my stuffy nose, which even my beloved nose spray wasn't helping, it was probably the most miserable night of my life.
So this morning when we woke up (later than usual), I demanded that we watch one more episode so I could stop thinking about the scary part. Thankfully, Andrew obliged me and watched one with me before heading off to work to put in his one hour for the day. (Gotta love the military on days like these!) Now Charlie is rescued--he practically died after hanging from a tree, but Jack and Kate cut him down--but Claire is still missing. And of course, watching that only made me want to watch another one. I guess that's how new addictions work--like drugs. The more you have, the more you want. Even if it's not as good as the Office.
