Farewell, Lost!

I never intended to watch the show, Lost. Husband convinced me when we were dating that I had to watch it. I watched the first episode of season 1 on DVD and declared that it was a dumb show and I wasn’t interested. But here I am years later, and I’m somehow addicted to the show. We even made a pilgrimage to the "set" in Hawaii two years ago. (Well, we were already in Hawaii to see friends, and it was fun to see the beach where they film.) I have mixed feelings about the series finale on Sunday. On one hand, I’m dying to see how everything turns out. On the other, I’m a little bummed to think that Husband and I will no longer rush to the couch to watch another episode of the show together. And I will miss all the e-mails exchanged with our friends saying, “Did you see Lost last night? What did you think??” Husband and I are having our own Lost-themed dinner on Sunday to celebrate. There’s a chicken place in town that looks almost exactly like Hurley’s “Mr. Cluck’s Chicken,” so we’re going to get take-out from there. (This might just be my ploy to have an excuse to eat greasy-fried chicken.) We’ll drink some sort of island-themed drink, too. Yes, this dinner is random, but then again, so is the show. So maybe it all works. Farewell, Lost. We will miss you!

I love love love LOST! I am like you, totally uninterested in it in the beginning, then we spent one weekend during the summer watching the entire first two seasons. We were hooked immediately and haven't looked back! I am going to be really disappointed when it ends!

Oh, I'm so there.

I was SO bummed when I realized that we were moving BEFORE the finale. I had a party all planned (in my mind) and now...nothin'. Thankfully SoldierMan has been willing to catch up all this week one this season (since he was at OCS) so we will be on-schedule for tomorrow night. I'm the same way. I want resolution, but I don't want to say goodbye. *sigh*

I think it's cute that you guys have been watching it together since it's been on.

Enjoy the finale! (And the candy!) :)

We just started watching Lost, this past December while we were getting ready to move! It both quickly sucked us in! However, we are still on Season 3, so it may be some time before we catch the Finale!

I am unsure of how I will ever get through the week without LOST. Oh, the sadness!

We are prepared for LOST tonight, too! I've got an easy-to-make meal and a glass of red left in a bottle for my consumption! Hubs has the beer fridge.

I know they won't answer all my questions, drives me nuts!
