Weekend Wrap-up

Justin and I had a pretty good weekend, aside from our neighbor's dog barking for twelve hours straight on Saturday. Yep, other than that, it was a fine weekend! A quick recap:

1.) Lost

Okay, who else spent 4.5 hours last night watching the Lost recap and Lost finale? Anyone?

Not too surprisingly, I cried when Sun and Jin remembered their time on the island. Ditto when Sawyer and Juliet reunited. *Sniff* And the scene at the end? Incredibly touching and sweet. It was so good to see the cast together, even if Michael and Mr. Eko weren't there. (I loved Mr. Eko.)

But the whole we're-in-the-in-between thing? I don't know. Justin really dug it, but I didn't think it made sense. My brain just couldn't bridge the gap after I spent the entire season thinking this parallel universe was indeed a parallel universe. Still, I shall miss you, Lost!

2.) Shrek, the finale

Justin and I watched Shrek yesterday afternoon. Just like Lost, this latest rendition of Shrek is supposed to be the last in the series, but I guess we'll just have to see about that depending on how much money it makes. The movie itself was okay. There were some funny bits and I loved seeing an oversized version of Puss in Boots. (So cute! I want a fat cat.) wasn't stellar by any measure. 3 out of 5 stars.

3.) Anxiety

I'm a bit anxious about two things coming up this week. First, Justin has surgery tomorrow to fix his hernia. It's a relatively simple procedure, I guess, but I'm still a bit worried for him. He's not looking forward to the recovery. Second, I should be receiving my agent revision notes this week! Eeekkkk! Totally freaking out about it. Don't get me wrong--I actually enjoy editing and I want to make my story as strong as possible--but I have a feeling there will be a lot I need to change! Eek!


  1. Speaking of season finales - I have to say goodbye to Jack Bauer tonight!!! How will I do this? He's my alter ego (I blogged on this a long time ago - the title was alter ego and you will think it's hysterical)

  2. Oh Lindsay, I can't wait to read your post! Haha, it sounds hilarious.

    My husband's watching 24 right now! It's one of his favorite shows, and I think he's going to go through deep withdrawals now that Lost AND 24 are over...

  3. I loved the finale. Lots of questions, but satisfying. I teared up a bit when Vincent layed down next to him at the end. I'll miss it.

    My brother's going under the knife tomorrow, and again, it's a pretty common procedure, but I'm worried about him.

  4. Kristopher, I hope your brother has a speedy recovery! I totally know how you feel though--even simple procedures makes us worry. After all, surgery is kind of scary!

    And yes, the Vincent part made me tear, too. It was so sweet! Plus, it was great to see him again since he played an important role in the first season. *Sniff!*

  5. Lynn sent me over to check out your blog. :)

    I have never watched LOST.
    I haven't seen the 2nd Shrek so I can't see the 3rd yet. :(

    But, I bet your revision notes will be great! No need to stress. Hope Jason recovers quickly.

  6. Karen, thanks so much for visiting my blog! You know, you can definitely skip Shrek but I think you might need to watch Lost... :o) Hehe.

  7. I actually liked Shrek 3. Not so much because it was funny, but because it actually made my husband sit up and take notice. He's going through a mid-life crisis and is completely kidified. This movie had me crying at the end and him nodding his head in agreement. Thank the lord! It took a cartoon to make him finally understand that life isn't so green on the other side.

  8. Julie, I'm glad your husband liked Shrek so much! I definitely enjoyed the movie and I thought it had a great message about appreciating what you have. That's something I constantly need to work on!
