Tonight we got to see the season premiere of Lost - the final season down at Waikiki...3 days before the world gets to see it. Don't worry I won't spoil it by giving away the story, for those Lost fans out there. We brought our dinner, set up our chairs, found a nice spot off to the side where we weren't crowded around by other people, poured our glasses of wine and then...couldn't hear a thing. It sounded like the adults on a Charlie Brown cartoon. Which explains why we didn't have a bunch of people crowding around us. But it was still fun...I think we caught most of the story line but will have to tune in on Tuesday to actually listen to the dialogue.
It's fun to watch a show where you recognize the places that they film. The stars did a red carpet walk before it began but we didn't go watch because we see quite a few of the actors around town anyway. I've seen them mailing packages at the post office, walking out of the grocery store with toilet paper in hand, driving down the road, at the beach and running around the neighborhood. They seem so ordinary....except they're famous around the world and make way too much money for the work they do. The life of the celebrity is an interesting one. Why does it seem so appealing to the world? It actually seems kind of lonely and fabricated.
