FUCK!



My ABC channel isn't coming in at all!!!

It was fine 20 minutes ago, then I have to go clean up a broken window (lovely, yeah) and I come back and I get NOTHING!

GAH!!

And Lost starts in 17 minutes!!

ETA: 9:06 pm

Still no FUCKING ABC. Neighbor's cable is out too. But I've arranged to borrow a tape from a friend tomorrow. I'm going to drive to her work to pick it up as early as humanly possible. FUUUCK.

ETA 2: The automated message tells me there is an outage in my area and that they're working on it. BASTARDS. And they'll call back between hours of 9 am and 9 pm to let me know it's been restored. Yeah, suck on this, you fucking lowlife useless motherfuckers.

And I'm still unspoiled, but now foxxcub tells me that I'm going to hate Michael even worse than I hate my cable co. now after tonight. I KNEW IT! *Urgh - saves anti-MIchael rant until I actually see the ep - it's not Harold, I swear, he just has the worst episodes EVER.*

OK, I'm staying off LJ now until I see the episode sometime tomorrow.

ETA 3: So my cable came back sometime well after 10 pm and before midnight. Fat lot of good Kimmel and Oprah reruns do me now! As a very small consolation, I'm getting a credit in my cable bill for today because I stayed on hold for half hour to speak to a live person and vent.

ETA 4: I just realized, as I'm trying to fall asleep around 2 am, that in trying to switch from cable to "air" reception, I didn't actually unplug the cable connection and switch to the antenna. I was just changing the TV prefs and frantically monkeying around with the rabbit ears ... which weren't connected to anything! Augh! I was too distraught earlier to even think of that. Oh well, tomorrow, a tape will be in my possession (gah, I hope!) and I can rejoin LJ and all will be be well. Sadly, though, that won't fix the lame Michael flashbacks. At least I can fast-forward through them!

Thanks to everyone who suggested lost_eps. No 2.2 uploaded yet but I'm still checking!

Ugh, downloading an ep took me like 3 days last time. I'll borrow a tape from a friend.

*squeezes tight* Maybe a miracle will occur? Or you could get the torrent?

Torrents take days! *sobs* But I've arranged to borrow a friend's tape. It's do or die, man!!

Unless you can point me to a fast site? :-/

I had no hate feelings towards Michael, but his backstory was boring and without a point--much like Charlie's in "Homecoming," it told us nothing that we didn't already know.

But don't kill him cause Harold is kinda hot!

Well, I wanted Charlie dead then did too. I guess I'm lacking in the milk of human kindness, eh? The worst crime you can commit is to BORE ME OUT OF MY SKULL, like those Charlie and MIchael backstories did. Seriously, why fuck up perfectly good episodes with boringass backstories that serve no point at all? See, I'm giving Kate a pass because at least her stories trick you into the idea that they're going somewhere, even if they never actually get there.

I started to really like Michael at the end of last season - why go piss that all away with another (from what I hear) Hallmark-type flashback?

OK, yes, I'm angry. Mostly at having to wait to see Sawyer for another 12 or 20 hours or so. :-/

;-D Still getting tons of mileage out of this icon you made me.

OMG, I feel so terrible. My electricity went out in the middle, so I missed a few min. myself, if that helps...

And I was a raving lunatic, all, "WTF is wrong with my life, holy shit, I'm gonna effn kill someone, I can't believe this is happening", in tears. Over two minutes. So I get that. Sucks. so. hard.

*send you mucho love, and Sawyer kisses*

Gah!
That is my worst fucking nightmare! Damn those cable companies. Can't they see the importance of this occasion? I feel your pain. So sorry you didn't get to see the Sawyer goodness. I see friends already gave you chocolates and nekkid Sawyer+Jack... (what good friends!) Sorry sweets, that sucks. hope you feel better. ;)

Re: Gah!

MINE TOO! Apart from famine, flood, fire, etc. I gave them a good piece of my mind but it's out of their hands, the bastards. And I couldn't get non-cable reception so wah, I was just screwed.

I remain a sad, sad fangirl until I can see the ep!

I had a fear of my cable going out as well..there was something freaky going on before with the channels, but by 8:30 it was fine.

You will see it don't worry, but I will say this..in the beginning you may not like Michael..but then it kind of turns around. And to be honest, the flashbacks weren't as bad as I thought they were going to be.

Whew! Well I was able to get a DL in about 35 mins! ;-D YAY! I fastforwarded through most of the Michael flashbacks. I so DO NOT CARE about him or his lame custody battle. Meh.

OK, next week should be good. Third time's the charm, finally?

Awwww!!! *pets Dutchy* *pets Dulcie on the way out*

I think though, if there was ever a time that the cable needs to go out, it was this episode. Eesh. Michael backstory = pointlessness of even living. I hope you get to see it soon!

Sep. 29th, 2005 07:43 pm (UTC)
Hee. Well I'm glad I was able to see it because Heroic!Wounded!Angry!Sawyer is my crack.

You know what I think of Michael. *sics fake(?) shark on him*

Let me know if you don't get it. I can UL it to my server for you tomorrow, as I'm off work. But I have to rip it first, and that will take a few hours, and I have to go to work now. But I'll set it to rip while I'm away, so I can maybe UL it for you tonight, if you don't get it sooner.
