Lost has lost its appeal

When Lost first came out, I loved it. I couldn't wait for the next episode each week! Now it seems like there are nothing but repeats, the show has lost it's appeal. You think the writers would come up with enough stories to fill a whole season without having to show repeats so often!

Even some of the stars must be bored. Two of them were arrested for driving under the influence recently. Michelle Rodriquez, who plays Ana-Lucia decided to take 5-days in jail and a $500.00 fine instead of doing 240-hours of community service. Now she will get to test her tough-guy image and see how it works in real life!

Fellow cast member, Cynthia Watros, who plays Libby, was also pulled over on Dec. 1st within 15-minutes of Michelle's incident. Watros was given a $312.00 fine and 14-hours of counceling.

Both cast members were pulled over in Kailua which is on the island of Oahu where Lost is filmed.

I hope ABC starts playing current episodes again or I will have to find something else to do on Wednesday nights.

Unusual Weather

Here in North Carolina we have been experiencing very unusual weather. We didn't even have a winter -- I am not complaining about that, I rather enjoyed it! Now it is spring but the temperatures have already been in the 90s! If it's this hot already in April, I can't imagine what it will be like in July and August! We are under water restrictions because we have hardly had any rain at all lately.

I'm sure this is not just a local event, the weather has been strange everywhere. Now I do not have the answers as to why this is happening, but I'm sure that someone reading this will have an opinion.

Please leave a comment and enlighten me as to why we are having such strange weather lately.

Lottery Tickets

It's been a long time coming...North Carolina has been fighting the lottery ever since I can remember. Finally we have a state lottery now. I thought I would give it a try today and bought $5.00 worth of scratch off tickets. Two $2.00 tickets and one $1.00 ticket.

This must be my lucky day because two out of the three tickets turned out to be WINNERS! One ticket was worth $20.00 the other $7.00. Not quite enough to quit my job and retire on my winnings, but I'll take the $27.00! Thank you very much.
I play the lottery once in a while and usually spend $5.00 at a time.

I'm curious to know what everyone else spends on lottery tickets.
Please answer the following question by leaving a comment: How much money do you spend on lottery tickets each week?
  • $1-$5
  • $6-$10
  • $11-$20
  • More than $20 per week
  • I do not play the lottery

Embarrassing Moment

Normally my wife and I will remember to turn off our cell phones while we are at the movies, in a meeting or at church. However, this was not the case last Sunday. My wife sings in the choir at our church, so she sits right up there in front of the whole congregation.

The timing was perfect, and could not have been planned any better if we had tried. The minister was in the middle of his sermon and came to a place where he paused for a moment for effect. Suddenly my wife's cell phone starts to ring loudly, she turns beet-red and quickly trys to shut it off but can't find it in her pocketbook.

After what seemed like an eternity she managed to silence the offending cell phone. Our minister, without missing a beat, continues with his sermon adding, "It appears that God has a special message for us!"

I think my wife will remember to turn off her cell phone in church from now on. I felt so sorry for her embarrassing moment. I guess I have now added to her embarrassment by posting it on the Internet for the whole world to see!
