LOST According to Mags: The Lighthouse

OK, so here are my random scribbled notes from the past hour:
``Whu? Jack has a kid?
``thank goodness Hurley had a handy-dandy pen
``I can’t wait to read Dogen’s translations.
``I kind of love how easy it is to manipulate Jack these days. Just push a button. It almost feels like someone calls him chicken, and his response is “Nuh-uh!”
``”If there’s one thing that will kill you around here, it’s an infection.” Bah-dum-bum
``I can already hear the jokes comparing Hurley to Palin…
``Theory: Claire will kill Kate
``Way to remind us about Adam and Eve – oh, Hurley caught up.
``Yeah, there was no way he was gonna make it. Im just glad she didn’t lop off his head.
``Dogen! Dogen! Dogen!
``Whyfore do you break the crazy mirror, Jack?
``Baby jears!
``Jin, no! She crazy!
``Yep, she gonna cap her.

So apparently my scribbly notes come out a bit ghetto. Live and learn. I'm going to turn my brain off now and revisit these posts tomorrow, alongside Dan's awesome recap.

Women's Health

(Oh, email forwards...)
Important Women's Health Issue:
- Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
- Do you suffer from shyness?
- Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Margaritas.

Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of Margaritas almost immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start living, with Margaritas.

Margaritas may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use Margaritas. However, women who wouldn't mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include:

- Erotic lustfulness
- Loss of motor control
- Loss of clothing
- Loss of money
- Loss of virginity
- Table dancing

- The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you are whispering when you are not.

- The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.

Please share this with other women who may need Margaritas. Thank you.

Kimba over at A Soft Place to Land really seems to be a fun, fascinating person. She has a decorating blog, which is how I found her. Lots of fun DIY projects and a strong work-with-what-you-got attitude make her blog worth the read. But that isn't the only reason I love stopping by her little acre of internet.

She has a Sunday Morning feature every week, where she posts an interesting Bible verse that speaks ot her. This week, I found it to be very encouraging:

I have swept away your sins like a cloud.

I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist.

Oh, return to me,

for I have paid the price to set you free.
Isaiah 44:22 (New Living Translation)

Southern through and through

I wrote this letter to submit to Ellen before the Super Bowl:

I grew up in Louisiana, raised a Southern belle by Southern natives. My father has been a die-hard Saints fan since before I was born. I never did enjoy football in my youth, but I knew I was supposed to root for the Saints and for LSU. My mother and I would never watch the games, but we smiled and cheered when they won, and patted dad on the back when they lost.

We moved to Texas when I was 11, and while my father’s sports obsession grew to include the local teams, he never stopped crossing his fingers for the Saints.

I’m now 26 and married to another fan-of-all-things-Louisiana. New Orleans has been very important to our love story; we took our first vacation there, we honeymooned there, and our wedding favors were gold beads!

My father cried when the Saints won last week, and I expect he will cry again during the Super-Bowl, win or lose. I am excited for the big game, even though I’m only just learning to appreciate the game of pigskin. This game will mean the world to the two most important men in my life, and my mother and I will have a blast making beignets to celebrate.

Our love for this team reminds me of a sports team from my very favorite book series: The Chudley Cannons. While the Saints are a much better team with a much better record, the unfailing faith and love Ron Weasley shows them is a true comparison of the Saints following in my house. Win or lose, we wear our fleurs de lis proudly!
