I don't think this is what the prompt was intended for but LOST highway brings one thing to my mind... One of my favorite obsessions, L O S T ( the tv show.) I have been riding down the L O S T highway for only ONE short year!
I was a later voyager. I started season one on dvd in March of '07. I could NOT get enough. My husband wanted to savor this series and watch ONE episode one day, ONE another.. I got totally obsessed and a bit CRAZY.I would want to see two or more in a row and He would obnoxiously say.. "Okay that's enough, let's not rush this" I Would Jump off the couch and scream "Your not the fucking L O S T police". I was like an addict who needed more. When we finished season one, I ran out the very next day to buy season two. AGAIN, he would try to hold us back from seeing too many at once. It was like he wanted to get his moneys worth or something? He definitely likes tv way more than I do, BUT when I DO like something.. WATHCH OUT! Season three came out mid december of '07 and we finished it before Christmas, and IN time to start season 4 on tv. My husband started his nonsense again, he didn't want to watch it weekly on tv... he wanted me to WAIT some more. "Let's wait till it's on dvd, we will enjoy it more that way." I don't recall what I screamed: "kiss my ass" rings a bell. Each week my son's friend Jon would join us as we all traveled down the Lost Road. ( thanks to dvr, we FF all the commercials) Then the hiatus.. due to the *%$#% writers strike. ( I think my husband was gloating) We have to WAIT 6 weeks to have more L O S T. It is like torture, UNTIL... blogging pal Rick mentions he likes the show "rescue me".. I picked up season one at the library. I FORCED HUBBY TO WATCH MANY IN A ROW... The following week- season two..Tonight, I just finished 3 hours of Rescue me.. I'm shakey and I NEED to get hold of season three! (This show is also like crack.)
If you aren't hooked on these two shows yet.. Trust me. You owe yourself a 'feel good' present.. go to amazon (or just take the highway) and let the obsession begin.
