Lost and Lost in Space

I felt fine all weekend until Sunday after breakfast. I started to feel some nausea. Then throughout the day I also felt achy and tired. My daughter had what I thought was food poisoning, but now I'm thinking virus. I have similar symptoms as to what she had, but she had it worse than me. Taking Aleve helped. During the night I had more nausea. So here I am with this late blog post. I am starting to feel better. 

However, Sunday felt like a total waste. I had so many plans to get outdoor work done. Instead, I was turned into a vegetable. Sometimes I feel lonely when I'm sick because I miss when my mom would bring me things. Like soup...etc. Now I take care of other people, they don't care of me. 

I watched some more episodes of Lost. I know it's old, but it's new to me. I really like it. In case anyone doesn't know, it's about a plane that crashes on an island and a group of people survive, but there is no one coming to rescue them. All these people have to work together and they get to know each other. There are some clever things about it. For example, everyone knows one of them is a criminal and it turns out to be someone you wouldn't expect. Also, there is a lot of mystery about the island. All these things make you want to keep watching to find out more. 

I have also been thinking about Lost in Space on Netflix as it seems to be a long wait on season 3. Overall, I like it, but I thought the first season was full of plot holes. For example, the planet they end up on has a cycle of extinction where it gets too hot for life to survive. Yet, there are prehistoric creatures on it. This makes no sense to me. Also there is a moment where Maureen goes off on her own to do something with a balloon. The wind almost pulls her off a cliff. Since when do you let anyone go alone on an unpredictable and alien planet? 

Anyway, the second season was much better. I like what they've done with the robot. He is now an alien/artificial life being. The one character I could do without is Dr. Smith, who is woman now. She can be interesting at times, but I don't want her to be like the Gilligan of the group. The one that keeps them lost in space. Dr. Smith either needs to die a villain or reform. Just don't stay the same. I like it much more when the family is dealing with strange planets and aliens.

Have a great week. :)


  1. I hope you feel better soon!

    I never watched Lost but if you want to talk about it with someone, I know Tony Laplume is a huge fan. I heard about the ending, which seemed lame because it was an ending people had predicted right from the start and they kept saying, "No, no, it's not that..." Then it was that. It's kind of an Occam's Razor where pretty much the solution was the simplest one.

    1. I haven't even begun to think about the ending. I guess great endings can be difficult to achieve sometimes.
