Just some randomness

Lost: My initial thoughts about last night's episode are Holy Jesus Lord. Seriously. I don't think I breathed the entire episode. I won't give away spoilers, but to the writers: I am mad at you. You know why. Also what's up with no Jack this episode? And next week it looks like the story of the people in the tail section which means no Jack there either. That's 2 weeks plus the last 2 weeks that were repeats which means 4 weeks of no new Jack. That is unacceptable. I expect the episode in 2 weeks to be entirely Jack. With no clothes on. If not you will feel my wrath. P.S. What is up with Walt? He is one freaky little kid. Get him away from me. I'm not convinced this whole thing isn't his fault some how.
Grey's Anatomy: I am obsessed with you. I never thought there would be another show that I would care about as much as "Lost", and then I saw you. I love you.
The Office: You had me at 'hello'.

When I left this morning it was snowing. Um….WTF.

Can we talk about the complete and utter bastardization of all my favorite childhood toys? My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, Cabbage Patch Kids. I mean they brought them all back which only makes them less special. And as if that isn't bad enough, they made them look slightly different. They all look like a creepier version of themselves. It's heartbreaking. I mean, I'm glad the little kids of today get a chance to see how cool they are, but I have a tough time hearing a 4 year old tell me they want a Care Bear for Christmas without rolling my eyes and saying, "Oh, well, I mean it won't be a real Care Bear but whatever." The worst offender has to be the Cabbage Patch Kids. First of all, they look like mini serial killers. I don't know what they did to their faces, but it's bad news. Second of all, my mom waited in lines for hours upon hours and got on waiting lists and spent tons of time and money just trying to get us one of those things, and the other day I saw them in Rite Aid. RITE AID!!!! Hey, Xavier Roberts, why don't you just slap my mom in the face?

ok. in the movie 'practical magic', they brought back the dead boyfriend and he showed up as something 'dark and unnatural'. i'm just saying. halloween knows what it's talking about.

and i would like footage of xavier slapping pam in the face. maybe get a news crew there for that.

first, why is danielle so dark suddenly...should we stage an intervention? I'm a little scared of her.

second, oh my god, i'm in love with dr. mcdreamy. and i would do jim, but not marry.

third, the only good thing about the re-release of the cabbage patch kids...they kept their crazy exotic names. Matt and I were looking at them at Rite Aid trying to sound out the big words last weekend. I do like that part has remained unchanged. -Steph

Psssst.....Jack WAS in fact in last nights episode. I am a Lost fanatic. I miss nothing. He was in the hospital in Shannon's flashback.
I agree w/you on the toys thing. Strawberry Shortcake, just isnt herself now. Where's the Gay dress? Shes 'hip' and not as wholesome! In 10 years they'll bring her back with a thong and low riders!

Yes I saw Jack in the hospital. But it was only for like 5 seconds. It was integral to the story which makes it awesome, but since it was so short it doesn't count. But still-that show is so effing awesome.

I am STILL pissed that they brought Rock'em Sock'em robots back at 1/2 size. Fuckers.

Golightly said...

but they did bring back Boone--even with that crazy f*ed up mullett, he was hot enough for the absence of Jack.

Johnny Virgil said...

I haven't watched it yet, but I just heard on the news that if you play Walt's words backwards, he says "they're coming and they're close."

Hey, we like the same shows :) Only thing is ... I don't care to see Jack naked. Kate is a different story ...

The toys I played with back in the day, and even the cartoons that the toys came from have all resurfaced, retooled. Except Thundercats (I think) . But He-Man toys look all weird, and there are new GI joes and Transformers all over the place. I do think it's cool kids get "kind of" the same toys ... but it will never be the same ... NEVER!

BEVIS said...

Ahem. *cough*

Um, I think Adam has an announcement to make on his blog ...

Adam said...

Why thank you Bevis,

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, hella weird Cabbage Patch dolls, way wreaked Rock 'em, Sock 'em Robots, Jack and Jim but not Walt,

I am pleased to announce that we have played out the Grand Final of the Bloggolympics. The winner was not Sarah, she wasn't very good at it. The winner was..........

Congratulations BEVIS, you rock!! (Maybe Sarah can learn from this and not choose Scissors next time).

Those toy complaints pale in comparison to this.

That's right, those 70s trolls now look like freaking Bratz™...
