The Best of Lost series features my thoughts on the top episodes from each season. They are presented in airing order and are only spoilery up to that individual episode's place in the show.

Season 4



"You know that you're here for a reason. You know it. And if you leave this place, that knowledge is gonna eat you alive from the inside out... until you decide to come back."

Since there are only 13 episodes this season, I decided to be fair and only choose a Top 5. It was tough though, because there was a lot I loved about this season. So here it is, enjoy.

What do you say? On three? Collapse )

Best of LOST, Season 3

Season 3


"If you say 'live together, die alone' to me, Jack, I'll punch you in the face."


Personally, I think this season was 1/2 good and 1/2 crappy. This is the season that was airing when ABC announced an end date for the series. While you might think that would make a superfan like me upset, it did not. Instead it gave the writers a target in the future - a frame to build the plot points on. It takes the control away from the ratings driven power hungry network execs and gives it back to the creative people. Even if that isn't totally true it feels like it to me, and season 4 rocked (despite the pauses for a writers strike) so the evidence is in.

Anyway, here are my top 10 eps of season 3 - honestly easy to choose since there were so many I could eliminate right off the bat.

Don't mistake coincidence for fate.

Way too long, so click meCollapse )


Just as crazy as season 1, and way better than season 3...season 2 was one for the record books.

Hello again, my LJ friends. I have not been writing here for a while, huh? Well, I have been reading my FL and honestly, most of what I have to say I can fit into twitter and facebook. I figure I will reserve this place for the square peg bits that don't fit into the happy round hole world of other social networking sites. I have also started a blog about travel on another site, so that stuff won't be here either.

Ok, so what do I want to talk about...well strangely enough today is the one year anniversary of an emergency surgery I had. I haven't really written anywhere about it, and now I think I want to. I want to post the pictures, tell the messy tale and be done with it. Don't be fooled, it still is the perfect source for a good exploding insides joke and it will always be.

the gory detailsCollapse )

I post all that to say a few things:
1. I am a very lucky girl
2. Part of that luck has to do with the friends and family I have, and how awesome they are
3. Another part of that is that I have today and the 364 other days since this incident

I am doing great, I actually was then too. Although it is scary to think about now, it all happened so fast back then.

I thank everyone who helped me through this - doctors, nurses, friends and family. Whether you could physically be with me in CT or not, I love you and thank you!

Here's to love and luck for all of us!

Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it

And so I abruptly dropped off of my 30 days of me meme. I don't expect to pick it back up, I thought I would be ready to talk about those last categories, but I am not. The day after I last posted I had meetings about fires and floods in one of the areas that I supervise and went to bed with a call that one of our student staff had died.

Four months since I lost my grandpa...my only pa...and some of the crappiest work weeks I have ever had to endure. So, no more reflective meme...time to blink through the dark and pick out the flecks of light.

I am so happy to have added new friends to my life. Melanie, Alisa and Tracy make work fun and make me better. Melanie and her husband Rob have also added so much to my out of work life, that I will not ever be able to thank them enough.

I am happy to keep the friends that time has already given me. As geeky as it may come off, seeing you all post on facebook and livejournal keeps me in step with your lives and I am very thankful for that. I love that when I do get to see you or talk to you, it seems like we were just together moments ago.

And all jokes aside my family not only made me who I am today, but they make me better every minute. Who am I kidding, my family is not just the few proud flesh and blood relatives I have, but many of the friends I have already mentioned.

I also can not thank Adam enough for being the best friend I have ever had.

Lastly, I encourage you all to visit 1000 Awesome Things I have been reading it for some time, but lately it has really moved the stepladder (to greatness) a little closer to me.

Thanks. Luck and Love to you all.

Official Bruce Lee Site


Bruce's daughter Shannon created this great site as a tribute to her dad and a way to carry on his legacy. It is plenty flashy, and all high tech. My favorite part, however, is her blog. Full of personal stories and great fan interactions. Thanks Shannon for sharing your dad with us.
