2. I've finally started a list (that is woefully incomplete right now, but it'll get longer) of "Books I've Read," because I saw a bunch of other people doing it and I am a sheep. No! Kidding! Because I think it's neat to see what others are reading, and also to remember all that I've read. So that will remain as Entry Numero Uno on my LJ for the time being (i.e. to see it, go to the current entries and it'll always be on top). Just in case y'all are curious.
3. LOSTaway of the day:
OK, I am not shifting my allegiance from Desmond, but I have to give it up for...
Flashback Hair Danny Faraday!!!
I mean, I know some people have ragged on his flashback hair already, but COME ON. Remember Boone's weird skeevy plastered-down spikes? Remember Locke's scary bad toupee? Remember Jack's Almost-Mullet? Remember the Bargain Basement Bin of Bad Hair and Makeup??? Danny-F has won this one, y'all. There is no contest.
That was the best LOST ever. BEST! Great plot! Twists! Suspense! Tiny but significant clues! Oh, LOST writers, you'd better keep it up. (Probably one reason it was so awesome was because we stepped away from the Wooby Jack-Kate-Sawyer ick for a bit.)
I looove Desmond, so of course I was all about the Des-in-time plot. And Daniel's Past Hair made my day. So adorable! I think I may have to love him too, except he killed Eloise! (My chinchilla was offended by this). I guess it's all in the name of science, though. At any rate, if he wasn't quite so wussy and spastic I'd definitely have a crush. Smart men, mmmm!
Oh, I caught the Hanso stuff, which some people missed, so for the record: Penny's dad was bidding on the diary of the first mate of the Black Rock, who's name was T--- Hanso. It was found on a (I think) Portugese) pirate ship or something similar. It's the ONLY relic of the Black Rock. So presumably either he escaped somehow to the pirate ship with his diary, or was rescued by them after a storm (maybe caused by the island) or in some other way was separated from the rest of the crew, who probably didn't make it. Also, Penny's dad bought that before Desmond made contact with Penny, so he would not have known in any way about any connection of Desmond with Dharma etc. So either he's just curious or he's somehow involved in Dharma or some of the sinister forces on the show (wouldn't surprise me). Don't know if he would have told Penny later when she was looking for Desmond - neither of them would necessarily have known there was a connection.
Note on the time thing: well, that could explain any age discrepancies wondered about by anyone who is told Aaron is Kate's baby later on.
So how many people think Ben's "spy on the boat" sabotaged the equipment, eh? Also, how many people nearly died laughing when they showed walls worth of ripped up electrical wires, and then Sayid was like, "Yeah, I can fix it in a minute." HEE. Oh, Sayid. We love you.
