"LOST" - An unexpected rerun! andTeaser Tuesday - "Calamity Jayne" - Take 2!!

We missed LOST last week, so for the sake of continuity, we quickly cleared the dinner dishes tonight, pulled last week's episode up on the computer and got all caught up. All right! We were ready in plenty of time. Refreshed our drinks, made a potty run and settled in for a new piece of the puzzle only to find it was a rerun!! We were really disappointed.

The story line is confusing enough without throwing us into a flashback that is a double-flashback from several weeks ago. WE've said several times this season that if we hadn't been watching from the beginning, we would never have stuck with it this year as it gets more and more convoluted.

Is it becoming any clearer to any of you?

Teaser Tuesdays
is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
** Okay, I admit it. I'm still reading the same book as last week. It IS a quick, easy read but I've been busy and just couldn't find time to finish it yet. Only a chapter or two to go. So, just in case last week's tease didn't grab you, I'm giving you another push for it. Honest, I would normally run through this one in a day or two!

Here are my teasers for today:

"So far, I had a jailed drug dealer-turned-snitch, a possible set-up of his attorney, the murder of his attorney, the murder of the snitch, and a payoff of some sort. Just what that added up to, I didn't know, but I was more determined than ever to find out."
pg. 215, Calamity Jayne, Kathleen Bacus

Even further into the book, C.J. (Calamity) still reminds me of our "blue-eyed blonde ditz" to the point where it makes me laugh from a memory spurred by the tale. ("D" - I still love you!!)

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

MAN - I too was so disappointed about the LOST repeat....and the series ends on 5/23. So not fair to take up a week with a repeat.

my guess: there will be a new series that takes off from the 'parallel' story line.

Hmmm, hadn't thought of that possibility!
