Three Things This Thursday


1. LOST So this way a big smiling episode for me!

Hurley and Miles are in my "Fave Five" for characters so I loved that they were the central focus. Their conversations were cracking me up......everything from Hurley explaining his Star Wars idea to how they compared the fact that they both talk to dead people.

So we learned that yet another guy has huge father/son issues......Miles finds out from his dying mother that his dad kicked them out when he was just a baby.......(or did he?) We also get an inclination that his dad might be responsible for his dead-people-talking ability.

We also learn that it is possible to be on the island in this whole crazy time travel and be two different ages as Miles sees himself as a baby (who I thought was so cute in his Dharma onsie)
.....and btw, who didn't get a little choked up when Dr. Chang/Candle/whoever he is says to Miles....."hey, Miles, I need you".....and he replies, quite child-like....."you do?"

We see "The Hatch" being built.....how freaky was it to see those numbers come back into the picture. Another thing you might have caught is that it appeared that there was something Egyptian being taught at the Dharma school....when Jack was erasing the boards....another something I pointed out last week.

It was nice to see Naomi ......and again confirm that Widmore did a massive grave robbing and staged that whole Oceanic Flight 815 recovery.....or at least that is what that dead guy spilled for information.

We now also know that Illana's sidekick, Bram is also "in" on something.....he was the thug that kidnapped Miles in that van, asked the good ole "what lies in the shadow of the statue" question and threatened him to not take the freighter trip......hmmmmmmmmm? We also know now that Ben must have accepted Miles offer for 3.2 million (double Widmore's offer of 1.6 million) as that was the first question that Miles had for him last season, remember?

We also confirmed the intense electromagnetic ability when that dude's filling got pulled through his skull/brain.....thanks again, Miles!

And a HUGE smile to see Daniel Faraday! WOOT! The fact that he instantly recognized Miles def lets us know that he has the ability to travel more precisely. He is coming to the island as a scientist from Ann Arbor, so he must have had to work that into his life to line it all up

.....can't wait to hear what he has to say, hopefully he can clear up some of this time travel craziness.

Favorite line: Hurley to Miles "You're just jealous that my power is better than yours"

Please leave all your LOST comments and/or links today....love to hear them!

2. Today is Josh's official birthday......even though we had his surprise party last weekend, today is THE day. N and I will be making a special cake for him, although it will be a quiet night with just the three of us. E is spending the night at a friend's house.....and G and H are at The Awakening Conference from tonight until Sat. Last year, there was over 800 youth that attending this awesome event..this year, they expect almost 1000.

I encourage all parents with children of all ages to start "feeding" your children Christ as early as possible. Something in this "world" is gonna grab them early in their adolescence......whether it is their peers' interests, drugs, not-so-positive roll models on TV/Internet/etc, whatever.....I pray that it is Jesus.

3. Today N and I are going to a Fancy Nancy tea party at our local library.......

I never thought my little rag-a-muffin tomboy would like this book series, but she does! So we are putting on our fanciest clothes and heading down for an afternoon of fun.......


ETA: just came back from a fantastic time.....the girls had fancy things waiting for them (including VERY fancy gloves), ate a fancy lunch, and listened to a book about fancy new words to use.....so fun! They even made a fancy purse and wand to take home.....BRAVO for our public library for offering such a wonderful *free* event!





Have a fantastic day today........please feel free to share three things with me. Prayer requests, funny photos.....a great new recipe or tip!







Peace and love~

Hey Michelle, Great recap! I loved last night's episode. I've been wanting to know more about Miles.

I think his mom lied when she said his dad left them. I also thought it was very mysterious to see Bram (I wasn't sure about his name) show up and threaten Miles not to go to the island.

When Miles asked Ben for the $3.2 million, I thought Ben just laughed at him and acted like he didn't know what he was talking about??

Well our recaps are very similar, except you really loved this ep and I was like 'eh'. :) I think the Faraday that came off of the sub is the same Faraday that landed in the 70's with our group so that is why he instantly recognized Miles. Miles has been living on the island for 3 years and Faraday has been gone, so I think right away he was able to get himself off the island and out into the world. Now he feels he can accomplish what he wants to, so he's back. Can't wait for the big crazy throw down in two weeks :)

And to everydayMOM above, I think that Ben probably didn't know what Miles was talking about with the $3.2 mil., it doesn't seem like Bram is on the same side as Ben OR Whidmore. If Whidmore was a banished leader from the island, it is possible there were others in the past who are also trying to return such as Ilana and Bram?

again. no comments on lost. sorry. how fun is fancy nancy. my girls may be not into it yet, but i've seen a few books. i'll have to get amelya into it. i'm so not a tomboy and neither is amelya...so i'm sure we'd love some fanciness. happy birthday to your hubby. on THE day. :0) and i whole-heartedly agree with you. kids need to be fed at an early age. because something will grab them. and i think if it's jesus first the other stuff won't look as appealing to them later. because i'm sure it'll still be a temptation. the enemy always tries to get us somehow. ((my word veri is 'noriest' i see:: no rest. ahhh yes no rest every. :-) ))

Happy official birthday to your husband!! The surprise party looked like a lot of fun.

Church related activities have always been one of my kids favorite things. I hope your kids have a great time at the conference.

The Fancy Nancy event sounds like a lot of fun. I've been considering reading those to my two youngest...they are already very into dressing up, so I think it would be a big hit.

Wait wait wait! Miles asked Ben for money? I totally forgot about this, how did that happen? When did they run into each other...?

This definitely isn't the 1970s Daniel... he's probably all of about four right then, if he's born at all... Its our present-day time-traveling Daniel who is returning to the island. I'm way curious where he went, and how much of the three years he spent away though!

I definitely loved the Hurley/Miles interactions and Miles trying to figure out stuff wit his dad -- it's fun to see him becoming more of a main character! Haha, right as Jack and Kate seem to fade into the periphery, which is a little odd... oh well.

Grrr, that wasn't supposed to be anonymous... it's me. :P

I thought last night's episode was really good, but I wasn't really surprised by anything. I absolutely loved seeing Miles's POV and the lack of relationship with his dad. I'm sure his mother lied to keep him from looking for his dad. I mean, what's a little kid supposed to think of, "We escaped but your dad was murdered by a bunch of crazy forest people." Or whatever happened to him. The part at the end where he had the chance to connect with his dad, even just a little, was particularly touching.

And I knew immediately that the "sub with the scientists" was going to be transporting Dan Faraday. I just knew it! I wonder if his mum is along with him.

@ EverydayMom......I too think that Miles mom totally lied......

and the 3.2 million works in nicely, Ben is always such a good liar, he def. could have been bluffing.

@ Sarah Eliza

Remember when Miles demanded to see Ben when they first came to the island? Ben mocked him saying why/how would I have that kind of money...but again, we know he is a good liar.

@ Karen

I was TOTALLY excited to see Daniel Faraday too.....woot woot!

@ Amanda.....the enemy waits to devour these young kids.....and he is good at what he does.

@ Denise.....we just got back from the Fancy Nancy Party.....posting pics now! So fun!

DEb said...

WHAT FUN!!! And that little girl is TOO CUTE!! NO tomboy there!!

Catherine said...

I thought the funniest line was when Miles asked what happened to the guy who was dead, heard "he fell into a ditch" and Miles asked "so the ditch had a gun?" Heh.

I also liked Hurley's line about how the ewoks suck. :)

Jack and Kate were lame as usual, and I was glad we didn't have to suffer them for too long. Man, Jack annoys me so much, just like Matthew Fox as Charlie on Party of Five was annoying. Maybe it's just that I find Matthew Fox annoying, I'm not sure. :)

Holly said...

This seems like a really cool meme! Maybe I'll have to try it some time. :)

Oh my gosh! Fancy Nancy tea party...that sounds too fun for words! Hope you had a wonderful time! I saw your comment somewhere and I came over to say hi. I love your little about me synopsis on your about me page! You seem like a fantastically fun Mommy!
