I could tell you I got up bright and early and rang the bus company only to discover that there was no bus to Bahrain today (there wasn’t), but to be honest, even if there had of been a bus, I would have missed it on purpose. I had bigger fish to fry. A fish called Lost.
Last January, Mandy and I made a pact to watch the last episode of Lost together, just like we watched the first episode together back in January 2005. She was planning to fly out to meet me in India or China or wherever I was. Well my enforced sojourn in Kuwait threw that idea out of the window. Plus there’s the fact that we haven’t got enough money left to fly Mandy to Bali, never mind Bahrain. So we did what we always do and muddled through – if we couldn’t physically be together to watch it, then we could certainly be together through the wonderful power of Skype.
I tell you what though, I have no idea why it took so long to download… there must have been a a few zillion people seeding it. But eventually Mand and I had it. I wore my special DON’T TELL ME WHAT I CAN’T DO t-shirt and we counted down to when we had to PUSH THE BUTTON (to start the video) with an 4 8 15 16 23 42 for old times sake.
Damn, I can’t believe it’s over. I need to think of a good replacement…
How about a mystery TV show called ‘Nightingale’ which is set in the outback of Australia – Mad Max meets Twin Peaks. After the inhabitants of the small mining town of Nightingale (pop. 108) awake to find their children missing, and in trying to discover where they have gone find themselves activating an ancient evil – one that might just destroy the world.
Two words for you – Aboriginals and Aliens.
Anyone want to option it?
