Hello dear friends,

I am on vacation this week and I am suffering through a really spotty internet connection through my phone.  I am sure that so many of you are hanging by a thread on Sunday nights waiting for me to post my Acme deals :D so I wanted to quick send you to another blog for this week.

I bought a paper today and it had the saddest selection of coupons, I wonder if it was just me or if that is all there was?

Anyway, it's not looking good for me to post the Acme deals this week, so I want to point you over to this post over at Moms Need to Know.

It takes me quite a while to do something, I know, but I have started using Twitter!  I've been tinkering with it for a couple of weeks because I wasn't sure if I was really going to use it, but I'm hooked.  I've been following some of my favorite bloggers and friends and it has really helped me keep in touch with their blogs and updates much easier.

If you are interested in checking out my updates or following me, just click the little button below.  I've also added it to my blog so you can find it anytime.  Looking forward to tweeting/twittering with you ;)

Kraft is giving away free packages of Oscar Mayer Beef hot dogs today only!  They will mail you a coupon for a free pack, but you have to register before midnight tonight (5/20).  The offer is while supplies last, so you will probably want to do this asap before they are gone!

In my Acme deals post, I mentioned some coupon matchups with and pointed out that you can print those coupons here in my sidebar without leaving my page.  To the right is a banner for, that either says for you to "Start saving today" which you can click through to go to their page and print the coupons (I believe this is what shows up for first-timers), or there are about 3 sample coupons available for quick print.  If you see the 3 sample coupons available to you, then you should see a grey bar at the top and at the bottom of the banner.  The top says "see all coupons" and the bottom says "scroll coupons".  You can use either of these to display all of the coupons that are available.

I hope this helps and thanks so much for using my site to print your coupons! :)

I feel like all I said tonight was OMG...Oh my gosh this, I can't believe that, OMG I'm wondering how I'm even going to put together a coherent recap post.

There was so much action-packed stuff in this episode I feel like this kind of jumps around and is a bit incoherent.  But I'm talking about Lost, so it is to be expected, right? :)

-At the beginning when we first meet Jacob, the strange cool-hatred between the two mirrored the scene with Ben & Whidmore.   When the mystery man and Jacob had the discussion about all of the people fighting on the island in the past, it is the Black Rock (presumably) that we see out in the water.  So who knows how long this fighting has been going on.  Could it really end now with our Lostie crew in the mix?  It seems like something that might never end.

-Not to toot my own horn or anything ;) but I so called what was in the box and I'm a little bit proud of it.  I think it was last week that I first got the idea that it was the real Locke's body (which I guess wasn't too much of a stretch, since the box was a perfect coffin size, but hey) and then this week I did manage to reply to someone on Twitter early in this ep. that I was sure that it was the real John Locke's lifeless body still inside.  I just can't doubt Richard Alpert when he says that it's never happened before.  You know that man has seen a lot!  So when we found that out, I was pretty pleased. ;)

-Vincent, Rose & was cute to see them, but their scene with the touching little music was a little over the top.  It was sweet to hear the "being together is all that matters in the end" message, but it obviously didn't really sink in for Juliet.  I was so frustrated with her giving Sawyer pretty much her parents' divorce speech.  

-After Locke fell from the window, it looked like Locke was dead before Jacob touched him.  I know there has to be some significance into Jacob touching/handing things to all of our Losties, but I just don't know what it could be.  And I felt like Jacob was really just helping all of our Losties on their way, but what was with him being directly responsible for Nadia's death?  Granted this is the one event that Jacob seems to be at after the O6 left the island, but it seems out of place that he be involved in something tragic.

-Where does Ilana fit into the whole Jacob and mystery man fued?  It seems like she's another Alpert in that she's been around for a while and doesn't seem to age.  I think this because when Jacob visits her in the hospital they clearly recognize each other from the past and she sure knew her way around the island, cabin, etc.  This show brings up so many questions when you get one little answer, why was Ilana in the hospital in the first place?  Is Whidmore after her and the rest of those that follow Jacob?  It seems as if Ben was following Jacob's orders and having Sayid go after Whidmore's people, I am presuming that Whidmore is also doing the same and is perhaps following the orders of the dark haired mystery man?  Did that make any sense at all?

-I have to admit that the "incident" scene was pretty thrilling.  I was waiting for Pierre Chang to lose his hand, but I was pretty darn sad when Juliet was sucked in.  I just wanted SOMEONE OTHER THAN KATE to be there with Sawyer while he was trying to help Juliet.  It is just crappy that Kate manages to throw herself into everything involving poor Juliet, that even in her death scene Juliet has to see Kate in the background of Sawyer.

-Do you think that Jacob knew what was going to happen to him at the end?  He seemed like such a sitting duck, and he must have known something major was up with two people busting into his 'home' like that.  He could have been a little nicer to Ben instead of looking like he'd rather die than say something nice to Ben.  It seemed to me like he thought that it was inevitable.  I read on a message board that the 'incident' just about to happen could have saved Jacob's life and that perhaps it really was Jack's destiny to go back and see Faraday's plan through.  That makes my mind hurt, but maybe the white flash at the end of the episode does suggest that perhaps there is one more time flash to end it all and bring everyone into the same timeline?  Jacob says that 'they're coming' he must mean Jack and the rest of our crew.

-Ok, I feel like I could go on and on with things, and I'm getting super tired and will need to think about it some more, but is the dark-haired mystery man (who some are calling Esau, to imply that he is Jacob's brother and this is some sort of biblically epic struggle) the Smoke Monster?  It would make sense that he is (or is in control of) the Smoke Monster and goes around the island deceiving and destroying while Jacob can go off island and use Richard and the others.  So when Alex appeared to Ben in the temple, it was really just a manifestation of the Smoke Monster, telling him to do everything Locke says, because they are all in it against Jacob?  Again, that kind of made no sense, but I'm going to think about it some more.

Please let me know your thoughts, or send me the link to yours so I can read them!  And if you read all of my post you are just as crazy about Lost as I am ;)

Well didn't that Free KFC Grilled Chicken Meal coupon really turn into a debacle?!  Sadly, KFC is officially not accepting any more of the free meal coupons.  Instead, you need to take your printable coupon into your local KFC and they will give you a form to fill out and a valid replacement coupon will be mailed to you for a free meal (and they are throwing in a free Pepsi this generous!!)

So that stinks, but at least there is some type of recourse if it is worth it to you.

If you haven't seen this episode yet, don't read anymore or you will be terribly spoiled!

Halfway through this episode I looked up at the clock thinking it was almost over.  When I saw it was only 9:30 I couldn't believe how much was already happening.

I wasn't disappointed by much in this episode, but I would like a quick peek at Frank and the Shadow of the Statue people, ok?  At least we'll see them in the finale :)

Ok, so here's my little recap:

-Richard Alpert carried that compass in his pocket for three years? lol...I just don't get how little he knows about some goings on.  You would think that he knows where Locke is for three years, etc.  Does he really just take orders?

-Sawyer and Juliet were SO satisfying in this episode.  When creepy, terrible Phil hit Juliet, there's no doubt that Sawyer will personally kill him.  I was cringing with terror that Sawyer was NOT going to get on the sub with Juliet, which would have just killed me.  Poor Juliet has been through so much so it is good to see Sawyer stick with her "whatever happens".  Too bad my least favorite person, Kate, had to crash the party, ugh!

-I also cringe when Locke says things like "Aren't I the leader now?" It's like cringe-cringe-cringe, Locke!!  Maybe Richard knows something more than you do about Jacob!

-The scene with Locke and himself...?!?!?  Ugh!  The time thing is so frustrating if Locke didn't already know try to get the O6 back and then die, how could he be there to have Richard help him and tell him that?!  I know, I know, but it is getting so frustrating.  Right after Ben's line "this must be quite the out of body experience" did you see a little bit of Smoke Monster when the injured Locke disappeared??  I rewound and paused but couldn't tell if it was Smokey or just from Alpert's torch.

-I loved the Pierre Chang and Hurley scene...if he spouted those questions at me, I would definitely not have been able to answer them just like Hugo.  I also loved some of those classic Lost little ironic moments like Alpert telling Jack and Kate that "love can be complicated".

-I like the new Jack.  The Jack that has some type of hope and sounds like Locke.  I think his character is finally turning the corner of this funk he's been in.

-Oh gosh!  How heartbreaking was the scene with Miles watching his father "abandon" his mother?  I kind of wished the scene was a little longer, but again we were moving at a crazy fast pace tonight.  Maybe there are more of these "horrible" parents who are doing things for reasons unknown to their children.

-Why did Richard look so visibly disturbed when they swam up into the temple?  It was almost as if he was looking at something on the wall that made him feel really uneasy?  Also, when Ben tells Richard that was why he tried to kill Locke, Richard looked at Ben in a way that creeped me out.  Almost as if Richard kind of thinks Ben should try again?

-Ok, the big one...Locke wants to -kill- Jacob??  I don't think it can be as sinister as it sounds.  Locke was the only one who has seen Jacob lately (in the chair in the cabin, remember?) and Jacob said to Locke "help me".  I think that Locke is either saying that he wants to kill Jacob to fool Ben, or because killing him would actually help him in some way (free him to be the way Locke is now?)...I know it doesn't make too much sense, but that's my little theory.

So next week is the finale and I do not want this season to end (as usual).  It looks like Sawyer, Juliet and Kate don't make it to the "real world" and we are in for an action packed 2 hours....Can't wait!  Please let me know what you think in the comments :D

Oh and can I ask why the computer-generated submarine launch looked so horribly cheesy?  I mean really!!  This is a top-rated show, do a better job here people!
