i've lost it
I have a confession to make. I've watched entirely too many episodes of Lost in the past few days. You know you've watched too much when you start to see reality through the Lost lens. For instance, if you find yourself staring pensively off into the distance at several points in the day, you know its gotten to you. Or if you start to talk in "Locke-isms", you know, where every tense moment can be dispelled by a "when i was a..." story that eventually leads to a breakthrough "oh my goodness it all makes perfect sense moment". Accompanied, of course, by that weathered, grizzled stare. One of the most certain signs you've watched too much of ANY tv show is that things start to become more "dramatic". I don't know about you, but each one of my days is not filled with approximately 4-5 cliffhanging moments that leave me with high blood pressure. Maybe that's why its so fun to get caught up in the stories, because i mean come on, how many real Michael's are there out there, who get explosively mad at least 3 times a day. The fact is, shows like that are just, well, shows. And they make you keep watching. So that you will find out more about that island. Dangit.
