Friday Fun! (Biking, Lost, Holiday)

Hello my lovely readers!  This week was the first step in hopefully, eventually biking all the way to work every day.  However, an attempt on the weekend showed me that I’m not capable yet of making it the 6 miles (one way, so 12 miles round-trip).  So, to work my way up to it, I’m biking to my bus connection, which is just about half-way there.  It was a bit nerve-wracking being on the road with cars, let me tell you, but today I found myself having a bit more confidence on the road.  Plus, I was able to move up a gear on the bike already!

Sunday was the Lost finale (and if you have yet to see it, you are not a true fan and deserve the spoilers), and of course I watched it, including the two hour re-cap.  I appreciated the action on The Island, but I was disappointed with the spiritual direction the writers went.  I’d been hoping the whole way through the series that we would discover that the mythology being yakked about by the older generation of protectors/evils was just a way to deal with science they had yet to understand.  Instead we get handed a glowy light with no scientific explanation and a happy-go-lucky, feel-good after-life.  Also, I never got to see Kate die, what the fuck is up with that?!   However, I didn’t hate the episode, and I actually found myself almost crying when Vincent came and licked Jack.  So the verdict on my end was meh.  I didn’t hate it, but it also didn’t ruin the rest of the series for me.  I’ll definitely be re-watching the seasons.

This weekend is a 3 day weekend here in the US for Memorial Day, which means I have Monday off.  I’m so excited!  I hope at least one day is beautiful out so I can go for a bike ride or a row on the Charles and have a picnic.  Happy weekends everyone!

    Yay for your biking progress! I know how you feel though I don’t like cycling on the road with cars either. I’m really lucky in my town that you can go almost anywhere on a cycle path or along the canal tow path, avoiding those horrid car drivers lol. But I must confess I’m still not cycling to work, one the weather is so unpredictable but two theres no where to lock my bike up, but I can walk.

    I did watch the finale of Lost. I agree with a lot of what you said. I loved the first and third season, and the rest were ok it all pretty much went down hill for me when they killed Charlie (love). But I carried on watching to finally know what it was all about. I had already guessed the parallel storyline was something like limbo, had no clue about the island itself though and then to be told it was all down to some glowy light in a pond…not really impressed. Only thing I disagree with is I loved the limbo storyline where they met up again, I found it rather emotional, especially when Claire, Charlie and Aaron were re-united.

    It also a 3 day weekend in the UK as well as its a bank holiday and half term for schools. Which will mean no 3 day weekend for me as the theme park I work in will be busy so I’m in work Monday as usual. I just think of the bonus I can get to make me feel better lol.

      Ah, your bike path to work sounds lovely! I take it they aren’t too keen on you locking your bike up to things that aren’t bike racks over there, eh? See, if I were you, I’d just lock it up to a lamp post or something. Too bad. Good thing you can still walk though!

      Isn’t that funny that we had 3 day weekends at the same time! I hope your holiday work was pleasantly busy.
