Thus, my Friday Fragments...otherwise known as "Lost Treasures."
(Thanks for hosting, Mrs. 4444)
I found a duffel bag full of clothes. Perfectly nice clothing, in my size no less. I had packed these items away during one of my pregnancies, and in my postpartum haze, forgot all about them.
Because I've been known to get into I'm-throwing-shit-away manic moods, it wouldn't surprise me in the least that I tossed bags of functional clothing away.
Just the other day, I had to be talked down from tossing my wedding dress. I said, "What, should I save it for Owen or Joel to wear?"
My friend said, "You could always make a pantsuit."
Another friend was quick to add, "If Joel plans to wear a shiny ivory pantsuit, I'm taking my daughter off the table." (You do that, don't you? Plan the nuptials of your respective children with girlfriends so you can have a really good wedding reception with your best friends?)
Anyway, long story short? Next time I feel the need to shop, maybe I should just look under my bed.
I also unearthed some photos:
Here I am in my sons' future shiny pantsuit. God, I was young.
Here I am being French-kissed by a baby kangaroo. This happened in California. Naturally.
Finally, I found this treasure:
NERD ALERT! I bought a magazine dedicated to LOST. For six dollars. Oh my God, I might as well write fan fiction and go to conventions dressed as Hugo Reyes.
But wait a minute...what's this?
Benjamin Linus. Does ANYBODY think he's hot now? Anyone?
I am very excited about the season premiere on Tuesday, but I still feel that I haven't completely succumbed to the dark side. Why? Because I did not think, even once, that I needed to own these...
...official Lost action figures!
After all, I can buy the magazine, watch the show with religious fervor, read the recaps and the fan forums online, and come thisclose to dressing my baby in a Dharma Initiative Onesie, but...buying action figures? That's just dorky.
And Lord knows I'm not a dork. If you don't believe me, I'll curse you out in Klingon.
Happy Friday, everybody!
