So I’ve been catching up with the LOST phenomenon for the last couple of weeks. I’m presently about 8 episodes into season 2. I remember when it first began airing. I think I partially watched the first episode and then didn’t really watch it at all. Then when the new season began this year (fourth season, I believe), I had the tv on ABC when they aired the “catch up” episode in case people hadn’t watched before. Well, I was kind of watching, kind of working on things. When I did look up and pay attention, I wasn’t impressed… WHY IS A THERE A GUY AT THE AIRPORT?? AREN’T THEY SUPPOSED TO BE LOST?? Come on now. The show is called LOST. Made no sense to me, so I blocked it and went back to work.
Saturday and the Orange tour came and Phillip McCart appeared shocked and appalled that I didn’t understand this show. That Thursday (or the next, can’t remember which), I went over to the house he and Anita live in to watch it with them and several others. Translation: I kind of watched while trying not to fall asleep because I was exhausted. And yet the show proved interesting enough when I was shown the light: they were showing flashbacks AND flash forwards. Oh. So they ARE still LOST. Hence I’ve been catching up and must admit, it is quite interesting and somewhat addicting.
When I saw this on ABC‘s front page, I had to check it out: Sawyer’s Nickname Generator. Sawyer is a character on the show who is pretty rugged, blunt, doesn’t hold back and gives everyone a nickname. I decided to check it out and according to web generated Sawyer, my nickname is Stretch. haha.
Also amusing and awesome: I read on there that the actor playing Sawyer was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Nice.
