Lost at Nate's

Last Thursday we went to Nate's house to watch Lost, because the People do not have any television service at our house. Sure, we could get television service, but that would mean someone would have to crawl under the house to run the cable, and neither of my People are willing to do that. Sandy - maybe you would like to do it? I bet there are lots of bugs and other things under there to keep you company! OK, maybe not. I know how you despise the creepy crawly critters.

So, we went to Nate's, and when we got there, I was afraid Woman had finally lived up to her threat of taking me to the pound, because there were so many dogs there I figured it was the pound and not actually Nate's house! Buddy lives there, so of course he was there, but there were three other dogs too - Copper, Chloe and a new dog, Nantucket. Copper and Chloe belong to Katherine and Andy, and Nantucket is Sarah's roommate's dog for whom she is dogsitting. It was quite a party, let me tell you!

Woman was not impressed with this week's episode of Lost, because she has no patience and just wants to know what happens in the end. Yes, she does read the end of books prematurely. What a cheater! She also always peeked at her Christmas presents as a child. She claims to not do that any more, but I don't know. She was acting awfully suspicious around Christmas last year. I think she's still a peeker.

I guess we will go back to Nate's for Lost this week, but I'm not sure that I will be allowed to go. Woman said 5 dogs was just too hectic.

And since I don't have any pictures from that night, I will share with you all a picture of Nate in his fun shirt sporting his faux-hawk.

Can you believe he's still single? With all that style, I guess no woman can hold onto him for long.

    I didnt realize you guys didnt have television service! I cant vouch for underneath your house, but I bet its not as bad under there as you think. Tell you what, if Jason and I decide to take a drive to the mountains before the baby comes, we'll swing by and he can wriggle around under there and run a cable.

    OR!!! Send Norman under!!!

    So Norman, do you think Vincent is one of the Oceanic 6?
    Last week's episode frustrated me as well, too many question and not enough answers. We need a better balance.

    Mommy hears alot about Lost, but she is afraid she will get confused if she picks up the show midway (I have found humans aren't that smart).

    Five dogs -- wow! Did you play with all of them? This Nate-person must have a huge house.

    Whoa whoa, faux hawk AND a fun shirt? Why are the ladies not pounding down his door?

    Also, you don't have TV?!?!?!!? Oh. My. God. I mean, I don't really neeeeeeed tv, but I loves me my project runway!!!

    We are confused....doesn't tv just plug into the wall?? Do you mean cable tv? How can you crawl under your house???? No basement???? You should have told me when I visited we could have made a crazy project out of it!

    If the People don't have cable, I don't see how they got hooked on Lost. What if Lost is on, but no one wants company that night? Personally, I could not risk missing a show that I love! :)
    I think the People need cable. Don't the cable guys get paid to crawl under houses ... I bet they would agree to crawl under there once they got a look at Woman ;)

    Um, why do they have to crawl under the house? Mom can't figure it out, but maybe it's because we have a cellar. As for Lost, well, mom would be like woman. Tell me what happens. She doesn't read the end of the book first, though.

    Norman, since Punchy is agreeing to crawl up in that dark space, take her up on it! She hadn't seen southern bugs like we have or she wouldn't be offering to do that! Is Nate the farmer guy? Nantucket!! I think if the Woman gets another dog she should name it Nashville or Asheville or Mobile! How about that?

    norman, i think you should pee on something if they don't take you to nate's to watch want me to tell you the full synopsis of this week's episode so you can spoil it for your people???

    Hey my parent's watch that show too! They turn into complete strangers when that show comes on though. They ignore me... they get mad way too easily all so they can just sit in front of that glowing box of doom on th wall!! That thing is starting to become the bane of my existance, especially when they take out their fake instruments and pretend to be awesome.

    AM - That's very sweet of you, but something tells me Jason might not be too excited of this plan :)

    Pam - Woman isn't sure of the Oceanic 6. So far she thinks it is; Kate, Jack, Sawyer, Hurley, Lock and she's not sure about the last one.

    Frances - Your mom person could rent the previous episodes from Netflix to get caught up.

    Doozy - LOL. Yeah, Nate's a ladies' man.

    Punchy - We don't have cable service, and rabbit ears don't work in the mountains, so we get NO channels when we just plug the television into the wall. The outlet for the cable is on a wall clear across the other side of the room from where our TV currently is. Since we have hardwood floors, we couldn't hide the cable under the carpet, so we need to put a new outlet in the wall next to the tv which means crawling under the crawlspace under the house and running the new cable. No, you would not have done this when you were here in October. It's gross down there.

    Tami - The People used to have cable when they lived in the apartment. That is when they got hooked on Lost. After they moved, they rented the new season on disc, but now that they have friends with cable, they find somewhere to go on Thursdays.

    Roxy - They have to crawl under the house to run the new cable to the new outlet on the correct wall in the house. The current outlet is clear across the room on the wrong wall.

    RPM - Yes, Nate is the farmer. LOL. Woman's boss had a dog named Ash that they got in Asheville. Isn't that cute? They live in Mobile though.

    Girville - Done and done. And I mean done!

    Pedro - I know the feeling.

    We're still laughing over here. Okay, I'll bring P with me. He is not afraid of bugs and not afraid to crawl in dark creepy places. Just last month he had to climb into the cistern in our 1800's basement...ohhhhh creepy....he wasn't even afraid!

    I don't understand how anyone made it through the second season of Lost, always the same thing. Good for you not watching TV! You aren't missing much... I love a dog named Nantucket, I used to go there every year as a kid. We named my parent's lab Madiket after a beach there. Ah, memories...

    I just don't get Lost...never watched it and am too lazy to catch up on all the episodes now. Norman, do your best to distract them from that horrible, glowing box.
