This weekend...

was exhausting!

It was one of those weekends where I never seemed to stop. Walking the dog, shopping, doing stuff for family, doing stuff for a neighbour, cooking, cleaning....

The thing that kept me going was the new season of Lost. We have been looking forward to this for weeks, and it started last night.

Everything was done.

I settled on the sofa.

Drink was at hand.

I nibbled a Cream Egg.

The opening scene appeared on the screen.

I woke up about half an hour later wondering what the f£$% had happened.

I repositioned myself, trying to watch the rest of the episode, fighting my eyelids to keep them open, but they are sneaky little blighters. At one point I swear they pulled a flanking move and closed from the bottom up!

Still, all was not Lost. (Geddit?, Lost?) They were showing 2 episodes, so I could at least catch the second one. I decided that I would watch it in bed. I headed up the wooden mountain to Bedfordshire, stripped off, splashed myself with cold water in the bathroom and, fresh as a daisy, rolled into bed to watch more.

Yeah, right. I managed to force my eyes open for a few tantalizing glimpses, but other than that I was off counting sheep.

Oh well, it is bound to be on again. Wish me better luck next time!

I've been the EXACT same way lately. I couldn't keep my eyes open to save my life on Saturday night. I was asleep by 8:30 PM and no matter what I did, I couldn't seem to open nor keep them open!

LOST always had that effect on me but even when I wasn't tired....still America's Next Top Model starts tonight!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Jen - That makes me feel a bit better. At least I am in good company!

James - America's Next Top Model? My daughter watches that. I think it is a great lesson in the fact that beauty is only skin deep - or make-up deep in a not of cases!

I'm so sad you missed it!!! It was amazing! I am a huge LOST fan:) Hubby tivoed it for me while I was in San Diego. We watched it Saturday night:) Some questions were answered... I cross my fingers it comes back on for you:)

Teresa said...

I have been there but now we have DVR so I miss nothing!

Can you watch it online? If not on the show's website but maybe on Youtube??

Chief Rock Chef said...

Kenady - It will be on again before next weekend - they are good at that sort of thing over here.

Teresa - I could watch it online at work, but might get told off! You wouldn't want that, would you?

How frustrating! I used to use the t.v. to fall asleep. Did it for years. Now all of a sudden, I absolutely can not fall asleep if the t.v. is on.

mr zig said...

heheh - I hate when that happens... although I LOVE falling asleep to the TV - just not when it's something I really wanted to watch!

I'm a little worriesabout your teeth shape after seeing that egg, reminds me of something I saw in Twilight lol xoxoxox

It is crazy when sleep takes over like that! Sat down on my couch the other night at 10 pm and the next thing I knew it was 1 am!!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Terri - That is a strange one isn't it? I wonder if you will suddenly switch back again?

Zig - I agree - sometimes it is a great way to dose off.

Sitting in Silence - Really? My daughter wants to see that, I will look out for it.

Claire - You must have needed it to sleep like that. Hope you didn't miss something you had been waiting for.

I am surprised the sugar high from the Cadbury Egg didn't keep you awake for DAYS! LOL
I am one of the few people I know who like those things.

I have managed to not see one single episode of Lost, so far. It helps when you never turn on the TV! hahaha
