Time travel--or just time to hire a better proofreader?


So last week's episode of Lost dealt with the issue of time travel. Let me first note that until this episode, I had no idea that Desmond was actually hot (his hotness only shone through once he ditched the wannabe-grunge-band-member hair and all that icky scruffy stuff on his face, though. Military Desmond = hot. Island Desmond = not hot. Although both Desmonds have really hot voices...sigh)...but I digress.


Apparently on the very same day that the time travel-related episode of Lost aired, there were other time travel-related issues going on elsewhere...particularly at a university that fellow blogger SUZIE is considering attending. See, on Thursday, they e-mailed Suzie to invite her to a program that was being held "tonight" (at least that's what the heading of the e-mail said), but then later on, they disclose that the event is really...in March! Is this a crazy instance of time travel, or just an instance of somebody being stupid while writing an e-mail? Hmmm...


Then the person writing the e-mail misspelled the word postgraduate. D'oh!!!


Thanks to SUZIE for sending in this amusing e-mail! Make sure to stop by her blog, Stall Wall Poetry...it's all about bathroom graffiti! You'll dig it. Promise. :)

You have it all backwards. Sayid, Sawyer and Desmond with hair-hot! Bald Desmond and Jerk, er, Jack-not hot.

I'm just an old hippie so I do love men with hair. Just, keep it on the head please. Chest hair, back hair, butt hair and nose hair-not hot.

Haha, actually, I think Sawyer's the hottest one on the show! And it PAINS me to say that because I LOATHE scruffiness. But I'd totally take Sawyer, whiskers and all. I do think Jack's hot...but he's boring compared to Sawyer. Sawyer definitely beats Jack in the personality/interestingness category. And there's something I definitely like about Sayid, too (probably the fact that he's smart and ripped...yeah, that could be it). But I'm gonna have to agree to disagree with you about Desmond. I always thought he looked kinda girly with the longish hair. With the short hair and lack of facial hair, though...WOW!
