In anticipation of tonight’s episode…


There have been times in my life when I have thought, “I wish I could get stuck on a desert island.” Don’t get me wrong – only for a month or two, and always with the assurance that a yacht would come pick me up on a certain day.

I could have time and space to myself. I could spend endless hours with no sound, no voices, no human interaction. I could think and read and write. I would be forced to deprive myself of sugar, as there would be none around. When I finally left, I would be so breathlessly ready to re-enter society.

And then, I thought, who needs an island? That’s just my desk job.

    …that was funny. And I was actually thinking that very thing before I got to the end… and then you said it!

    I, personally, would like to be stuck on an island… with Sayid.

    i couldn’t agree more about the assessment of a desk job… from across the country, i feel your pain.

    …Except if you worked as the receptionist at my company, you would have to fight to urge to devour the bowl full of chocolate all day long.

    yeah, I was kind of surprised about the no sugar comment. because every desk job I’ve ever had has been surrounding by candy. I think that’s because they’re typically so boring that people keep candy around to entertain themselves.

    I feel your pain. At least on an island you get a great tan. :)
