Dreams and LOST

I still haven't completely digested it.

I like there is still a great deal of mystery there. I cried a whole lot at each bittersweet reunion; Sayid and Shannon, Claire and Charlie, Juliet and Sawyer; I went "WHAA????" and came half off the couch when we found out Juliet was Jack's son's mother -- that was interesting. I am sorry he appears to have never truly existed; he was a nice kid and I actually liked their dynamic as divorced parents. Why why why why did it take so long for Jack to accept? He had to remain Doubting Thomas until the very end. And in the end...?

Well, in Sartre Hell was other people. It seems Heaven may be other people, too. In that sometimes you need other people, especially those you love, for there to be that much intense joy. (Although if they HAVE always all been dead, how did Desmond and Penny die? And if they died when Juliet set off the bomb, again, how did Penny die? Unless Ben HAD killed her, and never told...)

Doesn't look like poor Michael made it to Heaven, though.

I guess we'll never know what the Numbers really meant.

Barb and I have been saying Hurley was the one for over a year.

Yay Hurley, giving Ben the chance to really shine. Will he stay in purgatory, or go to Heaven? He's happy having finally been the #2 he always wanted to be.

I think Jacob was never in that cabin, I think it was always MIB pulling Ben's strings.

Why didn't MIB go all Smokey on Jack's ass? Why didn't MIB/Smokey kill Richard? Why wasn't Miles in the church with everyone else? Charlotte and Daniel got to go.

Hooray for Vincent.

And I'm sure I'll continue pondering this for some while. Which, I suppose, makes for some pretty fine television, if it makes you think about it long after it's over.

I think I'll miss it. I hope the "Complete" DVD set comes soon, and is affordable...

I dreamed some about LOST early this morning; Cairo woke me around 4, and after I chased him out of the bedroom and closed the door, I went back to sleep. I don't remember much about the LOST part, but it segued into Mom and I discussing some of our trips, and a restaurant where we'd tried many items on the menu and which we'd liked best, and then we were getting started to go again, and Dad and Tim were there. I haven't dreamed about my father and my brother in a long time. Tim looked how I best remember him, before the drugs and the halfway houses and detention centers; I don't remember seeing Dad in the dream at all, but I knew he was there.

I don't know what it all means.


LOST went so late last night I didn't even try to get up early this morning. I hope I have the energy to work out a little this afternoon. Weight is blah, blah, blah (175).

I sometimes think I ought to go to a therapist.

Oh, I liked Doctor Who this weekend, too. Good Silurian story, yay for the classic monsters. Eleven is coming into his own, but I think Amy is starting to be quite as annoying as Tegan... I really like Rory, though.

I wrote a little, got a new scene done, and am attempting to make sure it fits more or less seamlessly into the whole.

It's the last week in May and the HIGH in Phoenix yesterday was 79. Strange, strange weather.

I had to have front brakes done on the truck Friday, then bought cat food & some dog supplies (which Bo found on his own and devoured most of while we were at dinner Friday night--at least it was his own stuff, even if I would have liked for it to last a little longer), went shopping on Saturday, roasted a chicken for dinner, watched Shakespeare in Love, then vegged on Sunday watching S3 of Deep Space Nine (Kirk/Picard? Heh. CISCO ROCKS). Exciting weekend wrap-up.

Monday. What can I say?

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I liked the finale, too, because everyone (mostly) got to be happy and I got to sob. (Except I never bought Sayid/Shannon and still don't.) There are tons of things I don't get, though, but I guess that's Lost for you, huh?

I think I like the fact that a lot of things are always going to be a bit of a mystery, because with that kind of supernatural stuff, if you explain everything, it loses a lot of the magic. And it leaves every person to make their own interpretations.

I didn't really buy Sayid/Shannon back then, but it STILL made me all sniffly! (Not as much as Clair/Charlie and Sawyer/Juliet did, but still.) And I almost cheered Boone's appearance, when I wasn't all that fond of him back then. Go figure!

The weather is crazy isn't it?

YES! It's quite cool today, and next weekend is Memorial Day! (Of course, it should be back into the 90's by then, but still!)

The numbers correspond to the candidates. Looking at the lists (on the cave roof and the lighthouse) each name has a number next to it, such as 15-Ford or 42-Kwon.

The various people in the church died at different times -- some before Jack and some after Jack. The Flash Sideways reality seems to have been a staging area for the characters before they were ready to pass on/let go.

At least, that's my take. :)

And, despite my love for Kirk, Capt. Cisco is the best captain in the Star Trek-verse! ^_^

AH! There's a lot of LOST I need to re-watch. Must have the DVDs now.

Well, Michael still wasn't there -- and the last time we saw her, Penny was alive. (So was Claire, Kate, Hurley, and Sawyer, for that matter, depending on which reality you're looking at.) Of course, that is provided it's all linear, which obviously it wasn't, so...

I always liked Captain Cisco, but watching the show again I'm struck once again by how TOTALLY AWESOME he was and is, and how much he's been overlooked in the Trek Verse!

I think going to a therapist when one feels it might help is a pretty good idea for everyone -- then again, I'm crazy ;)

I just have to find one; every single one I checked online seemed to be of the sort "if you have thoughts of suicide" or similar, and I'm not that badly off, I just want to talk to someone about things I don't feel comfortable talking to friends & family about (and perhaps learning HOW to talk to friends & family about same, if needed!).
