"Lost Has Taken Over My Life" or "This Is Why I'm Single"

When I posted about my newfound addiction to Lost earlier this week, I don't think that I fully communicated the depths of this affliction.  I don't even know if I understood it myself.

I watched 30 episodes in 3 days...43 episodes in total if you count the Sunday before I had to leave for a work trip. 

I skipped 2 workouts to watch Lost. 

I screened phone calls from my mother, Mademoiselle BlondeMess, and Madame MarriedMess. 

I turned down multiple Saturday night AND Sunday Funday social invitations to have fun and be with friends so that I didn't miss a moment watching Sawyer glare at me with those smoldering eyes...

And the worst part...

I have nonstop dreams about Lost.  People getting abducted.  Makeshift medicine to cure unknown illnesses.  Monsters.  Sayid torturing me.  THESE DREAMS ARE TERRIFYING!  And yet, every morning when I wake up, I just shake my head and exclaim, "FUCKIN' LOST!  I simultaneously love and loathe you, JJ Abrams." 

JJ Abrams has stolen my independence.  His show has invaded my thoughts in that place that SHOULD belong to a swarthy, handsome, man who is fantastic in bed AND likes to cook for me.  I am so fucking glad that I didn't discover Lost 6 years ago...otherwise I may have revirginized!  At least now, with On Demand, I can knock all 6 seasons out just a few weeks...

GAWD,  This.Is.WHY.I.Am.Single! Eff....

  2. It's so refreshing to see someone become as unbelievably obsessed with this show as I was! Prior to a new season airing, I watched each previous season over again, marathon-style, much like you are doing now. That means that I have seen Season 1 seven times! :-) And no one was EVER allowed to call during an episode, except for my sister, and that was only during commercials to discuss what had just happened.

    I firmly believe that this does NOT in fact explain why you are single, but rather explains why you are so awesome. ;-)

  3. I will be honest. The Real Housewives of anyplace will cause me to lock myself in my house, drink wine by the box, and eat only sushi while I watch them flip tables and do their hair. There is nothing wrong with this.

  4. The list of tv shows keeping me in the house is probably longer than the list of reasons why I'm still single.

    I wrote a book about all the virtues of being single that you might like. It's called "365 Reasons Why I'm Still Single." It's a great reminder for every day of the year of why it's great to be single (and it makes a great Valentine's Day gift for your single friends!)

    You check it out on Amazon: http://amzn.to/efDMiC or be a fan on Facebook!

    I like your blog!

  5. LOL - I too am a LOST fan. However, I gotta admit it was best in the beginning-middle, it kinda jumped the shark toward the last seasons. I hope you enjoy them all though! I do this same thing with Felicity (remember that show from the 90s that was on the WB??). About two seasons in, I'm already looking forward to the end so I can have my life back! :)
