43 And Counting.

Guess what's arriving in my happy little mailbox today?

Yes, I have all the episodes stored on my DVR. What of it? I want the official boxed set. I need the official boxed set. It's my birthday gift to myself. (Indeed, my birthday is stretched out for pretty much the entire month of December. Just giving y'all advanced warning.) See where it says "The Expanded Experience?" I'm all over that, people...all over each second of it. Besides, all those behind-the-scenes bits of deliciousness are worth every penny. And hello...Saywer...shirtless.

I rest my case.
(Congrats, Josh Holloway--he's gonna be a daddy, y'all. But I digress...)

I've been waiting for my show to return since the end of May. THE END OF MAY! I cannot stress how depressing this is. I curl into the fetal position every night and pray, "God, help me through this...You've taught me to wait, You've given me patience...I've held fast. Please give me solace and redemption, in Jesus' Name. Amen."

I'm not kidding. I'll say this now, so that I don't have to mention it again: I do not joke when it comes to Lost. It's a Very Big Deal and Very Serious Business to me.

Have I frightened you away? Or are my fellow Lost-lovers joining this calvary of Lost craziness?

Finally, here's the new promo picture for Season 5. The islanders, as we've never seen them:
Seriously, I get chills every time I look at this. Dang, Juilet is smoking hot, eh? And I must have Sun's boots. Thank you, Kristen, for sending this to me over the weekend. You are the truest of friends. My love for you runs deep and wide, and could very well be categorized as obscene. I'll prove it to you when we're in London. At the pub. With Robert. And his trumpet. Ahem.

*Happy Tuesday, everybody! Go watch Lost!!!

Dave and I CANNOT WAIT until Lost comes back on air. We LOVE it!!!!

Mama Wheaton said...

Not a Lost fan, sorry to say I have never even seen one show. I just wanted to come by and visit the woman who also noticed Spiderman's assets. Happy Birthday and have fun with your DVD's!

BEST POST EVA. Not only do you have me cracking up but you know I return the obscene, pub going, Sun-boot coveting love right back at you.

The Big- London -Rob- Trumpet -Trip calls.

Dare we answer?

xoxox, Kristen

Amy said...

Okay, I have to watch that last season! It made me sad the first episode though when Jack seemed so crazy. I guess I'll have to suck it up and watch.

Caroline said...

Its just another strike against me that I don't watch Lost. I feel that its like 24. If you miss one episode, you've missed a LOT! There's no way I can catch up - unless I come visit you and we watch all 4 seasons. But I wouldn't want to watch TV all the time when we could be playing Rock Band.

BTW, I told Melissa I've been envisioning the 3 of us taking a trip to Savannah (you know, so Paula could join us) and toodling around there for a girls weekend. We need to make this happen.

CaraBee said...

It kills me when they make us wait SOOO long between seasons. It's just not nice. At all.

ParentingPink said...

I have been wanting to buy the box set and start watching LOST from the beginning. We missed the first couple of seasons, and hubby is dying to see the "full" episodes. Plus, if it has a guy in it that looks like that one, I want to drink my wine while drooling :-)

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

my dear... you have a bit of an addictive personality... :)

Course I'm patiently waiting for my delivery of the whole series set of West Wing... oh my head... that show...

Denise said...

As you figured out yesterday when you dropped by my blog, I am a TOTAL LOSTIE!!!! I moved to another state day of the season finale last May and I arranged my whole hotel city placement as well as room arrangements around when the show aired! (It was to no avail, I still missed it...)

My boys think I'm nuts but in a cute "Oh, Mom's freaking out over her Lost show again. Isn't that cute?" Teens are like that. But their also sweet. My oldest asked me last night if I knew what was coming out soon and when I said "no" he told me it was Lost Season 4 and asked if I was interested in getting it for Christmas. Hello!!! Does a bear poo in the woods???

Are you total *lost* cause like me and scour the internet for sites like Lostpedia and J. Wood's blog at Powell Books the next day? Reading J. Wood makes me feel smarter and stupid(er) all that the same time.

Rhea said...

I hadn't seen this promo poster! WOW! Very edgy. Very cool.

The women all look super sexy. And the men look good too. Especially Desmond and Sayid. hehe

It's so hard waiting for LOST to come back on. I've missed it. I dreamt about it the other night!! I put Season 4 on my Christmas wish list too.

Rhea said...

BTW, this is one of my favorite promos for LOST (a UK version from at least a year or two ago)

Wow, Michelle must have been running late this morning; I cannot believe she didn't comment on this one.

I still remember my first time with Lost. The season premier, sitting on my couch, with goosebumps, calling Michelle at the end of the show..."Did you SEE that?! Holy crap!".

Now I feel so out of the loop. When is it ever gonna come back on? Have they announced what night yet? 'Cause I'll be making my Jan-Feb work schedule next week, and I need to know!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: You could never scare me away. Our kids' futures are at stake.

holycrapilovelost. runon love. i go down the rabbit hole at every season start. have you seen lostpedia.com? have you been to http://darkufo.blogspot.com/ seriously, don't do it unless you have nothing to do for the next week and a half. i LOVE it.

Live.Love.Eat said...

I am a fellow LOst lover so you don't need to twist my arm. All I know is Kate should have been sitting where Juliet is. Just saying. Locke looks good for a dead man.

Mama Dawg said...

I had to quit watching LOST after season 3 due the lack of ABC on my TV here in the sticks. I can't afford cable and I haven't purchased season 4 to catch up. The DVD's are just too expensive. I missed half of season 3 due to bad reception even when I DID have ABC.

I loved this show and want to desperately catch up, but it's so hard.

Maybe when I finally get this new converter box to make my TV digital, I can finally get ABC again!

Heather said...

I get goosebumps and start to cry when the trailer comes on. I lean more towards Jack, but I certainly don't mind a shirtless Sawyer. Don't mind him at all.

April said...

OK...so the truth of the matter is... I never get your "BOYFRIENDS"...but Josh Holloway I get...he is SUPER DELICIOUS!

Brandy said...

I've never watched Lost. Not even one episode.

For this I'm truly remorseful and I hope this doesn't damage our friendship.

Elena said...

Do you know I finally agreed to naming my baby Kate because of this silly show. (And I only say "silly" because I love it so blasted much.) Can't WAIT for January 21st!!!

Amy said...

Girl, I tried to watch LOST. When it first came out, I was a dedicated junky. I made time to sit and watch. But then well...I got LOST...literally. I couldn't keep up and I quit. I am sorry. I think I have adult A D D when it comes to shows like this. But Joshy-poo now that is a site to behold.

Kat said...

I cannot wait till it starts again! And that promo picture. Sun's boots are something else. And are you like me...trying to find the meaning behind all the detrius at their feet...and see who is in the windows behind them??

And for all your peeps who haven't seen it...I am giving it away this week on my blog. Or if you need to get caught up - netflix is an inexpensive option. Hell, you could just join for a month for $5 - watch them all and cancel your membership!

Shannon said...

Every time I visit yours and Kat's blogs... and I see the Lost countdown clock thingy... I get all excited. I love seeing the number get smaller and smaller...

Dude! Kate was almost unrecognizable in that photo! And I want those boots, too. They're fab!

Julie said...

i am a bit behind... I am on season 3, I think... could that be right? Yeah I did see 2... I have so much to catch up on

Tiffany said...

Everytime I see the commercial/teaser for the next season I squeal a little bit.

Man, that pic is hot! Hot Sawyer, Hot Jack, Hot "Brother!" Desmond, Hot Saiyd!

Rowl!! Hottie Mc. Hotties! Only a month-ish left till creepy Ben comes back!!

Mariah said...

How did you steal my man and stick him on your blog?? I can't wait..

Jen said...

Sorry but I just can't get on this bandwagon. I don't know why but I just can't.

Mrs de Miranda said...

I LOVE LOST! Im trying to catch up for the next season in January!

KimmyJ said...

Geesh, another addiction I missed out on. I better go rent this from the beginning and sit around in fuzzy slippers, drinking fuzzy navels and look at fuzzy hot guys...umm, I digress - that might add up to a fuzzy fantasy there!

Karin @ 6ByHisDesign said...

We enjoy it around here, too --- although I don't think that's a strong enough word to use around you and yours...can't wait for it to return! Enjoy your birthday gift (there's that word again...!)

sassy stephanie said...

Um, ok. So, I don't always have the best of advice to offer. But, know this: as a woman, you NEVER have to justify a purchase.

Can I get an amen?

Britt said...

EeeEEEeee!!

Yeah, I'm a little excited.. Brotha

KDLOST said...

Oh my gosh Oh my gosh Oh my gosh! I just got butterflies thinking about it!!!!!!

LOST RETURNS SOON!!!

In our house, the world stops spinning when it comes on.

It. Is. Serious. So I am totally with you on this one.

Marrdy said...

A co worker of mine tried to convert me to Lost. I will have to start at season one so I won't be lost. Ha Ha...

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

It is so funny to me that we have similar tastes! I think you are aware of my love of all things Twilight and Lost is my absolute favorite show. Ever. In history. I love, love, love it.

I missed the beginning of the first season of Lost and didn't want to try to jump in during the middle. I spent a marathon weekend watching the episodes and had to wait and wait and wait for the season to return!

Not much longer now.

happymommy3 said...

New to your blog! :-) I love Lost. I can't wait until the new season. My boyfriend and I watched all the episodes on Netflix and now we wait.......
