Bea's New Hobby

Can you guess? Here's a hint:

A new collection of celebrity boyfriends came into my life over the weekend, and since I have sworn off dating and men for the time being, this will just have to do for now. And while the anticipation of seeing some yummy men with little to no clothes on is very appealing, I am just as impressed with the story and writing... for Lost is a very interesting program... Like another much beloved JJ Abrahms program Alias, Lost is apt to f*%$# with ones mind. I don't mind having my mind f*%$#ed with so long as I am in control with the degree to which my mind is being f*%$#ed. For example, f*%$#ing with my mind by pretending for over a month that you are going to be coming to Toronto on business and then pretending to be someone completely different when confronted with the fact... Not cool. Dude who was in a wheelchair before the plane crashed on the deserted island and then can all of a sudden walk... cool.

Am I the last person in the world to jump on the Lost bandwagon? Yes, but I am comfortable dragging the roomie through the mud to, if only so I don't feel like a total dweeb. I won't tell you just how many hours we spent curled up yesterday, being even lazier than our cats, watching as much of the first season as possible. Oh don't worry, we barely put a dent into the series.

Conclusion I came to: NOT watching TV when it is ON TV is really most excellent (also managed to fit some House in as well... ah Hugh Laurie, how much do I love you?) and that sitting through commercials is for suckers!

The End.

I so agree with you. I still watch TV programs, but most of them on DVD. I hate commercials! And this way you can watch as many episodes in a row as you want.

If we were stranded on a tropical island with you.. we would all turn gay.. just to make you suffer more.

Thanks "the lost boys"... I don't really see a problem with that actually. From what I understand the jump from male heterosexuality to homosexuality is a lot greater than for women.

With all the men gay, we women would have no choice but to follow suit. In the end, you "self proclaimed" gay men would only be shooting yourselves in the foot when you watch all the girl/girl action going on.

Sigh... t'would suck to be gay then I imagine... but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
