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:
