6 years ago today, Oceanic 815 went down, and the pilot episode of the world's greatest show first aired. We met Jack and Kate, Sawyer, Claire, Chah-lie, Hurley, Sayid, Locke, Sun and Jin, and we even got a sneak peek (well, listen) to the smoke monster! Now I must confess that I didn't watch that first season (I was nervous that I'd find the plane crash stuff too upsetting), but by the end of season 2, after catching bits and pieces here and there, I decided I needed to be brave and give it a try. It looked so intriguing... And oh was it ever! Alan and I rented season 1 and 2, and after just one episode, I was HOOKED. It fast became my favourite show. I watched it religiously and I talked about it pretty much all the time (not much changes, huh?)
6 years later, it is still my favourite show. I'm pretty sure it will always be my favourite show. After all, I did name my second child after one of the characters, didn't I? (still can't believe Alan agreed to go along with that, letting me name our baby after my tv boyfriend... isn't he a great guy?)

Alas, there are no new episodes of LOST to look forward to. But there's still a lot of discussing to be done! All sorts of unanswered questions to theorize over and favourite episodes to talk about. September 22nd is, and always will be, an important date in LOST history. And, oh-so perfectly, today my season 5 and 6 boxed sets arrived in the mail! How fantastic is that? It was totally meant to be.
This calls for a LOST celebration, don't you think? Time to crack open a Dharma beer, pop in a dvd and spend some time with my tv boyfriend (swoon!) and all the other lovely (and not so lovely) Losties. How soon will these boys be in bed? Because I just can't wait to get comfy on the couch!
Oh, yes, I am a happy girl... And now a proud member of Lostaholics Anonymous too! No, really. Go take a look.
