4 8 15 16 23 42

my sister emily flew with her husband to new york city today. i was at her house this afternoon when she called:

emily: "abby, i just lived your worst nightmare!!!!"

me: "wait, what?"

emily: "i just saw your worst nightmare! guess who."

me: "i have no idea!"









emily: BENJAMIN LINUS!!!!!!!"


me: "AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"


as you can imagine, i am experiencing a strange amalgam of excitement, jealousy, and utter relief that i am on the other side of the country. i'm really not kidding.

(but emily, give desmond my love if you see him.)

It was in every way the highlight of my day. He was with a lovely blonde, hugging strangers on the street and helping his friend into a taxi...and manipulating a large whispery black cloud over the Lincoln Center....

He is such a creepy little man!

Michael Emerson is from my hometown. I'vw seen him several times, mostly pre-Lost.

Rachel Hunter said...

He's a polygamist!!!!

I haven't watched Lost for the past few seasons, but I totally remembered that number frequency at the title of your blog! That guy DOES seem really creepy!

Elena & Alan said...

Wow!! He does look nightmareish...

I am tempted to say that if I met him I would go fists of fury on him, like old school fists of fury, not like Kung Fu Panda style. Then again, those large-mouth bass eyes might distract me and I would pull of some nightmarish scream as I ran into a wall or a dumpster...

i love all the comments.

ray- would you like to be one of his wives?

kim- i am still trying to digest your comment and i fear for your safety. wow.

jarret- i'm with you. running into a wall, unfortunately, rather than fists of fury.

i have to admit that ben was much scarier last season than this season.

Abby,
I believe the kitchen is from Target. Your hair is so adorable.

I do not watch TV so I don't know who this is (judging from comments, it's a TV actor?) but I will tell you this... if I were walking down the street and this man were walking towards me, you better BELIEVE I would cross the street and walk on the other side!

He is WAY scary.

I'm not positive, but I think Ben is my favorite character. I love his random sarcasm. At times, it's the only chance to laugh through the whole hour. Well, he's one of my favorites, for sure.
