Before I get to today’s post, I am pleased to announce the very, VERY exciting news that this post right here is my FIVE HUNDREDTH.
I know. I can’t believe it either.
That’s a lot of wordiness, yo.
Anyway, to commemorate this very awesome and surprising accomplishment, I am pleased to announce my Super Exciting Giveaway. I’ve got a few pretty cool prizes lined up, donated from some of my awesome friends. We’re talking handmade jewelry from Jennee and Gen, a DVD or two, a Scentsy candle warmer from Roberta, a super cute Picnic tote, and something else I haven’t confirmed yet so I can’t quite talk about it.
(I’m going to post a more detailed list tomorrow.)
It’s gonna be F-U-N.
To enter, all you have to do is comment on this post. That’s it.
But, you can get an extra entry. And it doesn’t require following me (although that’s always nice), and you don’t have to tweet or facebook or blog about this giveaway. Nope. You don’t have to do any of that. See, I’m trying to put together a list of my best posts. My Greatest Hits, if you will. And I certainly have my favorites. But I want to know which posts YOU like best. So, for an extra entry, all you have to do is tell me which of my 500 posts is YOUR favorite.
That’s it. Simple. And we’re going to run this giveaway through Sunday, May 30. Midnight is always a good cutoff time, I think. Pacific Time. And I’ll announce the winners by Tuesday, June 1st. I’m going to try to come up with a creative way to choose the winners. Something a little more fun than random.org. We’ll see how it goes.
And now, onto today’s LOST post.
I don’t know what you’re up to but I trust you. I think. I mean, I want to. And you’ve never let me down yet. So, yeah. I trust you. Probably. Just don’t make me regret it.
Someone who would be your Constant ANYTIME
PS: Tell Penny I said hi!
I know you’re all crazy and everything from hanging out in the jungle with no one but a Smoke Monster for company. I can’t blame you for that, even if you have always been about as much fun as a mosquito bite on my bra line. But, enclosed, please find a small gift. I saw it and immediately thought of you.
Use it well!
All the best,
A girl whose hair hasn’t been much better lately.
Thanks for always being awesome, dude. You made me laugh and you made me cry. Sometimes you made me laugh while I was crying. Now go win Libby’s heart and make her not crazy.
Someone else who says “dude” way too much
PS: Remember that time when you won the lottery and stuff? Um…can I have a loan?
So, I used to think you were kind of a jerk. And then I thought you were cool. And then you died and orphaned your daughter that you had never seen, just because you didn’t want to leave Sun behind. That was kind of selfish and I think I might not like you anymore. Heartbreaking and a little bit sad, sure. But really uncool.

You were never my favorite. I’m not generally a violent person, but that time Sayid was torturing you because you wouldn’t just come out and say that you didn’t have Shannon’s inhaler? Yeah, I was kind of cheering him on.
But then. THEN, you went and turned out to be a cop in the sideways world. And I love cops. At least, good ones that are sorta
pretty ruggedly handsome. AND, back on the island, you totally killed me with that look on your face when you realized if you would have just listened to Jack then Sayid and Jin and Sun and Lupidus would all still be alive. And THAT is how, after 6 years of kind of hating you, I started to kind of love you.
Well played, James. Well played.
loathing like love,
The girl in the 97 Avalon who would totally be willing to get a ticket if your sideways cop self ever needs to boost your quota.
Pick Jack. He’s cuter, nicer, and hello! He’s a freakin’ DOCTOR. Plus, it’s totally obvious that you love him way more than Sawyer.
Living vicariously through you,
It’s gonna be you. Let Jack do the surgery already, get your legs back and go save that island!
Wishing you health and prosperity,
The girl who always thought you were actually kind of attractive with your mad hunting skills and your historical knowledge and your…bald head. Whatever. Just go fulfill your destiny already.
I’m really mad at you. REALLY, REALLY mad at you. Ever since you lied and said your name was Henry Gale way back when, but then insisted that you were one of the good guys, I’ve always believed you. Even when there was no reason to believe you and everyone said I was crazy, I stood up for you. I just KNEW you would prove me right one day. And, for awhile, it looked like you had. You were all contrite and stuff after everything that happened with Alex and Jacob and I thought, “Ha! Now people know that he really IS a good guy!”
But then you had to go and throw it all away. Wanting Charles Widmore dead, yeah. I get that. But agreeing to help kill everyone else, without even any coercing? I’m pretty mad at you, Benjamin. Like, so mad that if I knew your middle name I would totally use it right now. You betrayed me, Benjamin. And I have a very long memory.
I like you in the sideways world, which means there is some good in you. You have a very small window of opportunity to do the right thing. I suggest you take it.
Feeling NO love for you right now,
Someone who would have TOTALLY kicked you out of the book club.
Look. It sucks that your fake mom murdered your real mom and all, but that’s no reason to take it out on everyone else. Just say you’re sorry and go away and we can just forget about this whole crazy business. Okay?
(Yes, I know that’s very Stephenie Meyer-ish of me to say, but I’m giving you a chance here, all right?)
A writer who hates Stephenie Meyer’s book, but loves second chances and happy endings.
Dearest, darlingest Jack Shephard,
I’ve loved you almost from the moment I saw the very first extreme closeup of your eyeball when you were in the middle of that bamboo forest. You are a hero, Jack. Wounded and broken, yes, but a hero, nonetheless. You didn’t always do the right thing, but you always did your best. And now you’ve gone and done what no one else was willing to do. What needed to be done. And I’m really worried. Because I think you’re going to die. And that makes me seriously sad.
If I’m right about this, though–
(Okay, fine. If Shawna’s right about this…)
–you will live on in your sideways life and continue to be an awesome dad to that child prodigy of yours. And you and Kate will still find each other and be together, because you’re supposed to and cuz she’s hot and you’re hot and you’ll go on to have beautiful babies together.
But I’m still gonna cry when you die. Like, a LOT. Because I love you, and that’s just what I do.
Thanks for being
beautiful awesome a hero.
