070. My last text message was to Colin, about how I was having coffee and reading about the iPod because I'm trying to unsuccessfully convert to Mac.



And track 9 is Strip My Mind. <333 Stadium Arcadium.

And of course Lost. I think next year, we should have Lost parties now that I've gotten Colin fully addicted. We can dress up like movie stars who are pretend-stranded on an island so they really look exactly the same as when they crashed. Seriously.

Awww, that scene from Crash made me cry too, and I don't normally cry during movies.

Posted by: Nicole on July 11, 2006

I rented the first four episodes of lost. Watched the first episode. Got scared. Decided I'd had enough. tongue laugh
