Tee Time: 5:45

Yeah, going golfing shortly. I used to totally hate golfing, but now it's more fun ... when you get older the ranger that putts around making sure everyone is behaving yourself leaves you alone more. When we were like 17, 18, etc, they'd be all over us, telling us to shut up, quit drinking, and stop yelling. They don't seem to care if you're older, only if you're an idiot kid.

Thank goodness I'm not a kid anymore. ....

Looking forward to getting a few holes in this afternoon - it was supposed to be rainy and cloudy, but this morning has been sunny and warm, with suggestions that this evening might be the same. I can only hope. 

As for Lost - there are still a bunch of neat things popping up every day for the show. The Executive Producers Damon and Carleton have released a new podcast on the ABC site, which doesn't really answer anything, but you get to hear how stupid some Lost fans are. You can tell when they're trying to be clever, but they really just sound like idiots. Normally they're clever people, but they try too hard, and it ends up coming out sounding self-referential and loathsome. I know all about it.

I generally dislike most of the Lost pod-casts out there - they seem to be hosted by people with absolutely no instinct for broadcasting, and they all sound like the "Hardly Boys" from South Park, except they use 'gangsta slang' as often as they can. It's the most excruciating thing to listen to. And most of the time, they merely "promote" their other projects that have nothing to do with Lost and then pretend they listen to hip hop because they like it, and not for the catchy phrases they can use later in their podcasts. (I looked for a YouTube video of the Hardly Boys, but turns out YouTube crashes my browser - so not doing that anymore). 

In any case, if you're having trouble keeping up with the answers and questions from the first five seasons of the show, they have been handily included in this list for you to review. You will find that many of the questions from Season 1 have already been answered, which is convenient. It would also suggest that most answers from the remaining seasons might be left by the way-side. 

Zombie stuff
In the same vein as the Jane Slayer, Pride & Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer, there is a new book out there that submits: What if the Beatles were zombies, and they had a British invasion? 
Find out in Paul is Undead
