The LOST Weekend: I am a Jack Girl

by Lian on May 24, 2010

Okay, Chaos Crew. It’s Monday morning and I am behind. Way behind. I was so unsettled/unfocused/excited by the LOST

Lost: The Ice Cream Cake

Lost: The Ice Cream Cake

finale, that I couldn’t write my oprah column or produce a podcast yesterday. Yesterday, in between folding laundry, making stuffed shells for dinner, and doing upper arm exercises, I watched 6.5 hours of LOST. The pilot. The recap. And The End.

Because Life’s too short not to be Lost every once in a while.

Yes, Jack. I'm your girl.

Jack, if it doesn't work out with Kate in the afterlife, I'm your girl.

I did manage to have a spray-on tan, but I’m saving that misadventure for the show.

So, now I am off to write the column, record a show, see a knee doctor, walk my dog in honor of Vincent,  get my toenails done for the Gracies, take the kids to soccer, and possibly see a documentary on pushing our kids too much called Race to Nowhere even though I don’t have tickets. Hahahaha.

But first, let me just say that I was 100% percent satisfied with the LOST finale. I sobbed like Out of Africa-style sobs at the end. Why? Because I am a Jack girl. Always was. And it was Jack’s hero’s quest that kept me engaged for 6 years. ( Frankly, before LOST even started, as Party of Five was another all-time fave show of mine starring Matthew Fox.) So, in The End, I didn’t need all the answers; I only needed one. And I got it.

My man over at Time Magazine, James Poniewozik, has a great column about the LOST finale. Better than anything I could write, so I’ll let him take it from here.

I don’t believe in a lot of things. But I do believe in duct tape.

Embracing my Chaos, Lian

Yes, I’d love the shells recipe too – having a high school grad party soon and want to make a few trays of something ahead of time.

I didn’t watch Lost either, but you and the sisters have gotten me hooked on so many things that your post immediately made me wonder if I HAD any duct tape.

Please post the shells recipe – sounds really good! Thanks, chpdlivr, for asking…

OK, you got me hooked on Friday Night Lights, but I just never got into LOST and I’m not going to start now. No hurry with the recipe…..but thanks in advance for sharing!! Oh, yea, you also got me hooked on Dove Grapefruit body wash and JJill chinos!!! I’m a Lian wannabe!!

You crack me up! I am sobbing about Lost and you want the stuffed shell recipe! Yes, I will. This time they were particularly tasty– as I made them with a turkey/zucchini tomato sauce.

Give me a day or two to do that!

Will you share your stuffed shell recipe? I need a good one!
