Tonight is MY Superbowl--and Here's Your Random Dozen Preview

Tonight is MY Superbowl. The first episode of the FINAL season of the BEST TV series in the history of … even before there was TV: Lost.

Most “Losties” are super excited for this event, and yet we mourn that it is the beginning of the end.

One of my most intelligent friends has said that watching Lost is more like watching a book than a regular TV show because "The characters are so complex, the plot is so rich, the spiritual overtones are so intriguing, and the romance is captivating.”

Wish I said dat.

If you happen to be a spiritual person, this show will definitely interest you.

“Is he … like Jesus?” “Is that one Judas?” “Why does Kate look so good with dirt all over her face and in her hair?”

Anyway, I can hardly write these questions because I have a one track mind, which is currently lost, pun intended, even though it was a bad one. I'm desperate. It's like I can't say "Lost" enough.

OK, two-track. I have to figure out what snack food to take to “THE” party tonight. Yes, I’m watching this in a group. I told you it was like my Superbowl!

I wish I had a team Jersey to wear … it would say, “Shepherd.” Because Jack is definitely the quarterback. And in typical Lostie fashion, I ask, “Is the name ‘Shepherd’ supposed to be symbolic of how he leads the ‘flock?’”

Here are you preview Q’s. Remember, read and write today; post tomorrow. Also remember: "Live Together, Die Alone" (Jack Shepherd, Lost):

The first 6 come from Kelley at I Didn’t Know That! Thanks so much, Kelley! And can you please help us out with #4???

1. Do you use the labels various charities send you as “free gifts?”

2. What is your favorite time of day (or night) for skywatching?

3. What is the most adventurous you've ever been with trying a new food? (Keep it G-rated please)

4. Have you ever heard a rock sing? (Trust me, there's a reason for this one!)

5. If you could learn a language you don't presently speak, what would it be?

6. Al Capone's tombstone read, “My Jesus, Mercy.” If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?

7. If you were a famous musician who was known by one name, like “Cher,” “Sting,” or “Jewel,” what would it be? It doesn’t have to be your first name, but it can be, if you’d like.

8. Have you ever been inordinately “into” a television show?

9. When you sneeze, do you go big, or do you do that weird “heenh!” sound that makes people think you’re going to blow your brains out? Any other variation we should know about?

10. Do you still read an actual newspaper that you hold in your hands, or do you get your news elsewhere?

11. Are you a good speller?

12. At what time each day do you start thinking about Lost lunch?

This is for my fellow Losties:

You are so hilarious. Hope no one in your family has a crisis tonight!
They'll be singing with David Gates & Bread: I'm LOST without your love. . . "

But...sadly...I must. While all of y'all watch the series premiere, I will be 3.5 hours away...in class...and will not have a chance to watch until Friday.

But it will be SUCH A GOOD FRIDAY. =D

Oh, I love Lost! And am totally bummed to be missing tonight's episode. I'll be studying with my gals at church tonight - which is the ONLY reason I would miss this!!! Guess I'll have to get someone to record it for me!

Patrice said...

I am so with you on Lost. I have been thinking all day what special something I am going to make for us to eat tonight! No big party for us, just the family. Never the less, we are so STINKIN' EXCITED!

Sara said...

I love that you are having a LOST party! Why didn't I think of that!
I also loved all the questions about the show. Hmmm, Shepard...leading his flock...that's so GOOOD.
I'm surprised you didn't ask who is our favorite Charater on Lost?
Does anyone NOT watch Lost? If not WHY!?!?!?! Do THEY live on the island?
I'm with you my Jersey would say Shepard too! Save 'em all JACK!

We got "lost" on LOST during the second season -- missed few episodes and got super confused. Once it's all over, we're going to rent the DVD's from the library and catch up because we've heard so many fabulous things about it! Have fun tonight!

I've been watching Lost religiously (pun intended) since the night it first premiered on ABC. Love it and can't wait for the show tonight! :)

We just discovered Lost a few weeks ago. We're on Season 3, episode 17 on our Netflix instant access thing. It's great. It's all we do though. LOST has consumed us!! All day this past Saturday we had a marathon. It's so bad I blogged about it Saturday b/c I had nothing better to say. We stayed in pj's & watched LOST. LOL.... We will not be watching this season, we will catch it on DVD once we are done. I can't stand having to wait a week between episodes, haa haa, so this DVD thing is good for me! Anyway, I'm a convert. I said for 6 years "I'll never watch that stupid thing" & alas, here I am. The Shepherd leads me..... =p

My husband is out of town this week, so I made a promise to DVR Lost so we could watch it together. What was I thinking? What am I to do? ;)

Just Breathe said...

I am right there with you. I can't wait to see Lost tonight. Actually I have to watch it later but I can't wait. Love, love, love LOST!
Thanks for the questions.

Jenny said...

I hope you had fun last night. I was so super excited and sad too. I don't want it to end, it will be like when Friends went off the air...tragic.
