Operation 365 Poem: day 359…Pee Show

Pee Show

What do you do
When you need to go to the loo
But stuck in your studio seat?

You smile and pretend
And hold it until the end
Until all the filming is complete

You can’t interrupt the taping
So you learn to get good at faking
Convincing yourself you don’t need to pee

At least I got to see the show
Audience seats opened due to snow
So being out there was a freebie

But on the flipside that meant
I couldn’t pee before my segment
Where I was cast to be in a workout

So when you see it on TV
And I look like I need to pee
That’s because I DO – especially in the jumping about!

So last night my mum and I finished watching Lost season 6, the final season, that I had bought on DVD for her.

I LOVED Lost – it was a great series and even though I caught on late and had to watch the first three seasons in one go, which I did in less than a week!! It was one of the best shows I had ever seen.

There was no way I could watch it live though and have to wait a full week to wait for the next episode, especially with the cliffhangers at the end of each episode…I don’t know how anyone can wait a whole week to see what happens next with any show really!! It’s sooooo annoying! But even more so with Lost!

I would try though sometimes to watch it live as everyone would talk about it the next day so it was hard not to get any spoilers, but my schedule hardly allowed me to keep up, so for some of the seasons I waited for the DVD, some I watched on ABC.com as they would become available the next day after airing live, and some I would watch live with friends….but we were usually drunk before meeting up so then had to watch it again as had no clue what happened!! 🙂

And, if people know me…any chatting during shows or movies or anything results in me getting annoyed and pausing on remote, or rewinding back to re-watch…as I take them very seriously!! Haha! I recognize my crazy but I can’t help it!!

My mum is the most annoying as she will randomly chat about something that has nothing to do with what’s she’s watching or she asks questions that either just happened or will happen….and all she has to do is watch!! And with Lost, when everything is crucial information….there is always a lot of pausing!!!!

It has become a ritual with us with Lost. Since my mum and I watched the first three seasons together over a week one Christmas holidays years ago as everyone was raving about it, every year since then I would buy her the next season on DVD to watch over the Christmas holidays. I would have already watched it, depending on how much time I had, but we would addictively sit and watch the whole season in just a few days. And people who had no interest, like my dad, would have to watch something else. Although with my dad it worked out well as he would go to bed earlier anyway or want to watch the news. But then when Stuart came into my life and started to come with us for Christmas I then had to get him on the same page in order to be included!! So he had to catch up before he came out the first time and had to watch I think three or four seasons in one go too! I know – we are crazy!! But otherwise he would be left out!! So I watched a bit of the catching up with him too…which was so interesting to do with all the knowledge I already had.

Anyway, Lost ended a while ago, and I had bought the last season, season 6, when it did, ready for my mum and Stuart to watch….but then that Christmas was split with me in London with my parents and Stuart in Redhill with his….so we waited. And then this last Christmas I couldn’t leave the country due to my Green Card application and my parents fell ill and could not travel…so then again it could not happen.

So it’s been a waiting game….and naturally, and I don’t blame them, people sort of gave up. It had been so long that Stuart lost interest and didn’t care any more and then my mum sort of did the same. Which I found sad as a true Lost fan!

I had watched the final season of Lost, all 16 episodes in ONE DAY, on the day of the finale, as I had to catch up on the whole season to make it in time for the live two hour finale event that evening!! And it was an emotional whirlwind of crazy!! So I had always wanted to watch it again when I had time and could really pay attention and see how I felt and be able to interpret the ending properly.

So I have been waiting to watch this last season again…and since it has been a ritual with my mum and Stuart, I didn’t want to be a poop and watch it without them…so I have been holding out….and it just never happened!

Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to bring with me now since I would be gone for 6 months from NYC and may be a good time to make the others watch with me perhaps??? And then I realized that it had to be watched now, before the baby, as apparently I will have no life after the baby haha!! So….since Stuart said be didn’t care…I made my mum and I watch a few episodes every day on a pre-baby arrival rush, and we just finished last night!! (Don’t worry Stuart, if you want to watch it, which I think you should, I will gladly see it again with you!!)

I have to say it was hard because it had been years since season 5, so remembering all that info and complexities and then having to explain to my mum, was quite taxing! As well of course as my pausing and rewinding constantly because she was soooooo annoying!! So it did take us longer to get through…but it was GREAT!!!

What a great show! And what a shame really that it is over.

I was quite surprised with how I felt at the end this time. And how my mum and I interpreted it….can discuss properly now with my Lost buddies!! Since I was so out of it that one single day of watching them all!

My two friends Paloma and Brianna said they wanted to watch the whole of Lost again, from the beginning…we said in one weekend, but that would be quite the feat….although I kind of want to do it that way as it would be an amazing challenge…so let’s do it!

Anyone else want to join us???

Stuart…you can watch the little one until we get to season 6 and then you can join in, right???? Or the little monkey can be the youngest Lost fan and watch the whole thing with us! 🙂
