Numbers and Blood


Sounds like a good post, huh? Creepy. It is actually a way to connect Three disjointed posts into the semblance of one. Get it? No. Ok, try this then.

That's right! Tracie and I have FINALLY joined the LOST bandwagon. We "rented" Season 1 From "McNeil Video" (basically borrowed from Tracie's parents collection) and are HOOKED! We've avoided watching it for so long mostly just because we knew we'd be hooked once we started. I can't remember a better show I've ever seen. And throughout watching the episodes, I shout "I love this shoooooooooow!" And "This show is so gooooooooood!" etc. I've never done that with any other show. I promise.

So yes, I now love LOST. However, I've only seen Season 1 so far, and episode 1 of Season 2. Therefore, if you tell me any spoilers or anything, I will disembowel you, and painfully. I love you, but I'll tear you into 23 pieces and scatter your remains around the globe.

The numbers of lost bring me to my next set of numbers. I have Sudoku on my cell phone. Besides Freerice.com and Solitaire, I think Sudoku is the most addictive game there is. Well, today I reached a new level of obsession. My Sudoku game keeps track of how long I've played it continuously. And as of today, I've played it for Twenty-four hours. I don't know why it's such an accomplishment, but I feel I deserve to go home early because of it.

But I'm not going to... Yet I will blog about it.

I'm sure you're now all asking yourselves why I said, "Numbers and Blood." (I'm sure you're also asking yourselves things like "Is he really that proud of playing 24 hours of Sudoku?" Or "Wow, into LOST now? What's next? Gonna tell us 'This band U2 is pretty good. I think they have a shot of going big.'" Or "Is Austin Serious about disemboweling us if we divulge LOST spoilers?" But one question at a time) Why DID I say Numbers and Blood? Let us go back to Texas for a bit. (Oh, yes let us! I miss it so much!...ahem) Every time I go to Texas and come back to Utah, I get nosebleeds. I think it has to do with the fact that my body (nose, especially) is pained at leaving my family, and so causes me to stain my shirts. So far, I've had eight bloody noses since we've returned. That, or the dry climate in Utah causes my nasal cavity to erupt, after getting used to the humidity of Texas.

I bring this up NOW because of the Blood thing, the 8 bloody noses thing, and because I was in the restroom an extra long time today because #8 hit my while I was in there playing Sudoku, and I got the record of which I am proud. So there ya go. All makes sense now, don't it?

P.S. I don't think my posts are funnier than Tracie's, but I do think it's funny that I just saw her LOST post and our writing is so similar and even some of the same words and phrases are used. Two peas in a pod, that's us!

I have been just *DYING* to get into LOST.

We don't have cable, and my bunnied-up metal earred TV wasn't very good for captioning, and it was hard to follow the first few episodes with poor captioning so I gave it up.

Looking forward to having time to rent and watch LOST.

Freaky picture. It's almost as scary as the koala one below!
Yay! You're a LOSTIE or a LOSTAWAY!
And, I had a good chuckle when I finally read how it all connected. Very nice.

Woohoo LOST!
I shall refrain from spoilers. But I will tell you that once you're caught up to Season Four where it is now, look up www.lostpedia.com It has a ton of detail on all of the connecting information, even some things that I-heaven forbid-missed the first time around.

Oh, after watching season three, go to www.find815.com Not only is there a set of mini web episodes that lead in to LOST Season Four, but there's some nifty hidden stuff too!
