Things I Love Thursday

LOST Fuck yes! Finally, after several grueling months without any new episodes, the new season has begun! I don't know how many LOST fans are reading this, or how many people haven't seen the new episodes but I will say this: when I thought I was going to finally get some answers, they mind-fucked me yet AGAIN! I don't care though because I like it & my crush has swayed from Kate to Sun now because she's a bad ass all of the sudden. I'm totally stoked about this season. And I say this for every season, but I think it's the best yet.

Brini Maxwell She's amazing. If you haven't ever heard of or seen Brini Maxwell, you need to. She's like a transgendered Martha Stewart that's stuck in the 60s. It's an incredibly entertaining crafty show! One of my buddies introduced me to the show several years ago & I had totally forgotten about it until recently so I had to go watch some episodes online. And she has one of the best theme songs EVER! "Put down the iron & pick up a drink..." Although I think Queen's song "Killer Queen" would've suited her better!

Apathy & Other Small Victories
This book was in my Honorable Mentions from the last TiLT & now look at it! A full fledged Thing I Love! I didn't want to finish it! It really was a fantastic book. Here are a couple ofexcerpts from the book that made me say HAR HAR HAR!

"There comes a time in every man's life when he wakes up drunk on the toilet and begins to doubt the choices he has made. And when that time comes at least twice a day, every day, something needs to be done."

"Everyone drank too much coffee too, at the wrong times and for the wrong reasons. They drank it when they came in every morning to get going, and then again in the afternoon to keep going. They ran on caffeine fumes all day and never fucking got anywhere. Then they went home spent and empty and crashed in front of the TV every night and slept away the few hours they had for themselves. All these motherfuckers are always talking about the best ways to manage your time. The fact is any time spent at work not sleeping in the bathroom is wasted time."

"It's like someone who prays every night saying God's a good listener. Just because you're talking to us doesn't mean we're listening. With me & God, you never really know"

"Cowardice, if done correctly, can be its own kind of bravery."

There are tons more, but I'll leave it at just those. I loved the book. So. Much.

*Honorable Mentions*
BooksBooksBooks!, Coraline being made into a movie, being completely ok with doing nothing, staying in bed till 1, ABC's song, Iesha, watching old cartoons like Heathcliff & She-ra (and SHIRTtales!), ridiculous commercials, people that usually piss me off make me laugh instead because they are stupid & ignorant, The Paradox of Choice, people giving me a chance, having brand new gaming systems yet still playing NES games, feeling justified, animal print tissue paper

Just so you guys know, there may not be too much crafting going on as of late because crafts have taken the back seat to books. Maybe I'll come back with loads of crafts though. You never know ♥

I am totally loving Lost right now. :)

Those are some of my favorite parts of Apathy, especially the cowardice part. That and Foop! by Chris Genoa are my two favorite books right now.

I've never seen once episode of lost.....I am so lost... (actually i am so cheesey) I think Ill start from season one on Netflix... I cant allow myself to wait a whole week for next episodes thats why I don't watch shows like that... because if I miss one show and don't know what's going on i cant watch the next one... I think its slight OCD... i might force juan to get a dvr

I think it's worth having a crush on Sun because she is stunning.
Mind you that picture of Kate has made me go all funny as well...

Brook - maybe it's best just to stay away. A lot of people enjoy taking ecstacy, but that doesn't mean you should try it. Watch the Big Bang Theory instead !:)

brook-yeah me & will watched the first 2 or 3 seasons on dvd...much better than having to wait a week for the next episode! but girl, you got a LOT of catching up to do!

jamie-i know, right? they're both extremely gorgeous...but now that sun has seemed to take on a villian(ess?) role, she's much hotter to me!
