Jin Returns While Jamie Gets the Boot

I promise I am not making a habit of not blogging for two weeks at a time - I don't even have a good excuse really, other than the fact that once I settle in on the couch it takes a lot to get me up.

Now that that's out of the way, I felt compelled to blog about last night's TV watching.

American Idol consumed my first hour, which was pretty non-exciting. I really only watch the beginning episodes to see if I can spot the top 12 or whatever it is.

On to Lost ... wow, where do I begin. Now that we are technically 4 epidsodes in I can't write all my thoughts during those episodes. Well I could but I'm sure no one would read it ... if anybody's reading anything I'm posting. But I digress ... While the first half hour of the show really served no purpose, at least we discovered that Ben is the one behind Kate and Aaron's blood test request, which I guess we really should've seen coming. Although throwing Clarie's mother into the mix for a second was very convincing, even though it was quite the coincodence. Even though NOTHING is a coincodence on Lost. I was however very happy to see that Jin is alive! I was really hoping he would be, which makes it much easier (I think) for Ben to convince Sun to go back to the island. Hurley, however might be the one kink in the plan since he seemed completely against helping them once they made him lie. So we'll see ...

Four hour three, I settled under my blanket with my ice cream to watch Top Chef (I challenge anyone to watch Top Chef or Diners, Drive-In's and Dives, without consuming something). Can I tell you that I am absolutely LIVID that Jamie was sent home and not Leah. The purpose of the challenge was to imitate the dish as closely as possible, not cook a new part of the meal because they can't figure out how to create it. I mean come on, Leah flat out quit during the quickfire challenge and has sucked during every challenge except for maybe 4 when some sort of divine intervention occured, I'm sure. All I have to say is if Fabio gets sent home before Leah, I'm done with this season. We all know Stefan is going to win anyway. But I leave with with a not so appetizing portion from yesterday's episode, since I have a not so appetizing taste in my mouth.

Woo, what airline is this?!
Sadly, I do not. But I did do a yahoo search and then a youtube search and found some strange HBO Christmas program about otters? I am sure if I had cable as a child I would have loved it.

On another note, reading your last post, and skimming the others, we have much in common. Does Jin realize he is going through time? He was stuck ona raft and he was in serious need of chapstick. Does he realize it's the French woman! I knew she was coming eventually!

Now, for the real test -- Do you watch Big Brother? Many people don't . . . .

Actually, the quote is from License to Drive when the old man steals Les's car and becomes airborne.

However, the Christmas show you're talking about is Emmet Otters Jugband Christmas ... a classic!

I loved that Jin returned. I think he figured out the time travel thing once he realized it was Danielle. Yes finally Danielle's story is making sense!

Unfortunately, Big Brother one of a few shows I can't seem to get into.
