Anyone have a Tylenol?

Wow. Does my brain hurt. I didn't think a TV show would cause me so much stress and mental anguish, but boy was I wrong. As I sat on the couch watching Lost last night by myself, I discovered that I like to talk out loud to myself. Okay, so it's not really a new discovery, I've known for a long time that I talk to myself, out loud, when I am home alone. Anyway, I found myself saying, "my brain hurts" many times while watching the latest installment. Have I told you how much I love this show? For a split second of a split second I had the though of "I don't think I can watch this anymore - it hurts too much", but then I snapped back into reality and said "of course I will keep watching, what am I? A Moron??" Lost is seriously the best show EVER on television. I know, I know, everyone has their own opinions, but this is mine and I think it's the best. Just when you think you might have a very slight idea of the direction the show is going...BAM! up against the wall with something new. I don't think the show had been on for more than 5 minutes before I had my first jaw drop of the night. I just don't know how the writers do it...and how will this all wrap up in 2010? I don't want it to, but I do want it to - we need to know!
When Lost first came out, we (okay me more than Mark) would spend much time online trying to find theories, ideas, comments to help figure out where this show is going. People have dedicated their lives to explain Lost and the theories behind it. Over the seasons, my diligence in online digging has waned, and I am okay with that. It hurts my head too much to read all of the theories out there. I have found I enjoy the show much better when I watch it, ponder it, discuss it with Mark and a few others, read my one recap of it and wait for the next episode. I used to like to know semi-mild spoilers...not so much anymore. I like not knowing what's coming. It's interesting to have an idea about a storyline and then see if it comes to fruition, or if you were just way off base.
I know I spew my love for Lost a lot on here, so it comes as no surprise to anyone that I am doing it again, but when you watch an awesomely excellent episode such as last night's "Cabin Fever", you just have to let the world know!!
I'm pretty grateful that the season finale will be May 29th... if it was any later than that, with my luck I would go into labour 5 minutes before it started, and that would not be good. We'd definitely have to find a way to halt labour. Do you hear that Little Girl?? No coming before the end of May!!
On the topic of pregnancy...I have found a diamond in all of this gestational diabetes muck. You know how you gain about a pound a week your last trimester of pregnancy? Well thanks to GD and the lovely bland diet...I now have 6 less pounds I will have to lose after this little girl makes her entry! It's not quite enough for me to yell, "Yay for GD!", nor is it enough to quell all of my desires of eating chocolate chip cookies and peanut M&M's, but it does help me put it off for another month. So if anyone is in the area after we have this little girl, feel free to bring by a batch of cookies and the XXL bag of M&M's from Costco (or ship them if you won't be by, we have a decent sized mailbox- it'll fit)! :o)

Amazing you have been able to actually lose some weight while pregnant- that is awesome! (Sorry about the bland diet though- that can't be easy.) But you will love it not having extra weight to lose after the baby comes. As far as the baby coming early, I wouldn't fret too much about that- as I am sure you already know, the majority of first time babies come late...anyway, what are you so worried about? You have DVR silly, it's not like you would miss it! lol You are funny. What about last night's LOST had your jaw dropping? I guess I have become immune to their attempt at shock factor since they do it so much. The show seriously stresses me out if I try to know everything that is going on.

Picturing you on your couch, saying "my brain hurts", out loud, to no one made me laugh today.

I am new LOST lover. I am still on the first season, but LOVING every second of it. I can't stand to see commercials for current episodes because I want to know what's happening, but I an nowhere near to close!
