Spoilers Revisited

Hello. I'm Trish and I'm a spoilerholic.

This was the week that my two big mysteries were solved - who dies on Lost and who died on Reunion.

First, Lost: I already knew Shannon was going to die and I'd read quite a few theories as to how she was going to die. Now, I've never been a big fan of Shannon and I won't really miss her. That being said, I'm a little disappointed by the "how." I don't think anyone was surprised that Ana Lucia is capable of shooting someone. She's already been portrayed as mean and bitchy. I was hoping that Shannon killed herself or maybe that the monster would get her. OH well.

Reunion: now this episode was great. I'd read that Samantha was the dead friend. So when this episode started with Sam telling the story, I was sure that the spoiler had been wrong. I was so mad that the spoiler people had tricked me. So I was loving it when I realized at the end that the show had tricked me, not the spoiler. I was so fooled!

So now I'm going to try to stop reading spoilers. We'll see how long that lasts.

Over the last year, I've started frequenting more and more tv related websites. I now have so much tv knowledge that I don't even need to watch any of my favorite shows for next couple of months because I already know everything that's going to happen.

After I found out what was in the hatch, I thought I was finished with spoilers. Lost just isn't the same when I'm not surprised. But I can't stop reading the spoilers. I'm addicted. I've even started watching new shows so that I can read more spoilers. Lost wasn't enough.

But I think I've hit a new low. I've been watching Reunion (though I haven't watched last night's episode yet). It's not a good show, but I was hooked - waiting to find out who died. I don't even care who the killer is, I just wanted to know who died. Well, I found out today who it is. Now I don't have any reason to watch the show.

I guess I need to go back to watching Law and Order, where there aren't any questions left at the end of the episode.

My latest irritation

So Lorelei is 11 months old today. I can't believe that this first year is almost over.

Anyway, I'm starting to get irritated with her daycare. Her infant class is divided into two halves - the younger babies and the older babies. Lorelei is still on the younger side. Half of her class will turn 1 within the next two months and they are still treated like babies.

Part of the problem is the turnover in teachers/administrators in the last 2 months. First the director tried to leave for a new position and her replacement quit before she even started. So the center has been without a director for a month. Next, of the 6 teachers in the infant room, 3 have recently left/been fired. The new people in the room are all temporary, none of them knows my child and she's not learning anything new. And the teachers that have been there and DO know my child are too busy training new staff to spend enough time with Lorelei.

If this daycare center wasn't right next to my office, I would be looking for a new one already. But I love being able to visit whenever I want during the day. And it's easier for me to keep an eye on the center when it's next door. They had better shape up soon!

May the Force be with someone else

So the last Star Wars movie came out on DVD this Tuesday. And of course, my husband had to run out and buy it the first day it was released. So I now have something like 12 Star Wars movies in my house (I'm afraid it's actually more than 12). You'd think that once we had all 6 on DVD that there would be no more. Sadly, there seem to be plans for a new box set with all 6 that my husband just has to have. I'm not sure that these plans exist anywhere except husband's head, but whatever....

And now he tells me that he needs to buy The Clone Wars (all 3 series). Don't even get me started with the toys, etc.

When will it ever end?????

Lost was my favorite new show last year. I still think it's one of the best shows on tv.

Anyway, I found this cool video. It's one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. (OK, I know I don't get out much). It's pretty well done for a fanfilm type of thing.

Speaking of Lost, I am totally loving Sawyer this year. I thought he was kind of an ass last season, but this year he's totally winning me over. I might not even mind if he gets Kate instead of Jack. Ana-Lucia doesn't deserve either of them though.
