Lost Cause

While 'watching'* this most annoying of shows with the obsessed boyfriend -

Locke: What if I told you you could have anything you wanted. What if I said you could have anything in the entire world?
Sayid: I would tell you that the only thing I ever wanted died in my arms, and I'll never see it again.
Locke: What if you could?

Me: Is he going to make him watch "The Secret?"**
BF: You're an asshole.***

Later -

Me: Is this scene happening in the past, present or future?
BF: Well, see last season they were doing all the flashbacks and blah blah blah blahbitty blah and this year it's both the flash forwards and the Blah to the blah-blah, and ON AND ON, and all kinds of dizy-making description and explanantion-
Me: I didn't ask for a dissertation on the space-time-continuum of Lost, I just want to know in which part of time this scene is.
BF: You really have to see it from the beginning.
Me: You people always say that, but it's just a dressed-up tropical, sci-fi soap opera, and they've done that theme on Days of Our Lives since at least the early '80s.

I'm really never giving that show any more chances.

postscript: I'm getting this t-shirt made: "All who wander are not into Lost."

(*by this I mean mostly interrupting as much as possible, reading, fidgeting, yawning, watching him watch and generally distracting myself and others from watching it, which could be seen as a public service or act of charity.

**...that or they are going to fashion themselves a Golem, old Jew-schoolio. Either way, it's a lose-lose situation, but then, that's the title!

This is quite possibly your most hilarious post ever. Thanks Kissygirl--I'm often tempted to start watching Lost, from beginning to end, and I think you've cured me.

Manor West Nightclub said...

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
