"Jughead" (Lost thoughts)

Okay, I have to write this down before I forget.

Okay so Charles Widmore was on the island 50 years ago. I guessing that he was the leader that Ben mentioned when questioned about killing the Dharma Initiative and there was some kind of struggle for leadership between the two of them and Widmore lost so he had to leave the island.
So here's my math, work with me here, everything is approximated.

Okay assuming Widmore is around 18 in 1954 and Ben Linus was born around 1965. So in 1970 the Dharma Initiative was founded. Widmore would have been around 34 and was the leader of the Others. Ben arrives on the island around 1975 around the age of 10. So in 1992, the Purge happens and Ben is 27 and Widmore is 56. Widmore is the ruthless person Ben talked about as the leader who ordered the Purge. At some point soon after, Ben and Widmore get into a power struggle and Jacob, I'm assuming, picks Ben as leader or whatever and Widmore has to go. So he leaves and becomes rich but is still mad about having to leave the island and that Ben took his place so he is trying to get back on the island for whatever reason. So now he is 73 and Ben is 46. How Widmore got to the island I don't know but I think that Ellie, the girl with the gun, is Daniel's mom. And that Widmore and she had some sort of falling out too (maybe about the purge) so that is why she is working with Ben.

That is my theory anyway.
I still don't know what's up with Richard Alpert though.

My thoughts on the Duggars

So I watched A Very Duggar Wedding this weekend and don't get me wrong I don't have anything against the Duggars and their ever expanding family. I do, however, have some opinions.

1. All the men were unbelievable patronized to the women about the wedding. It was like, oh you women folk and your weddings and wanting to have nice things. And the girl wasn't fancy or anything at all. The dresses, which were really pretty and I would actually wear unlike some of the other things they were, were homemade. I'm not sure about her dress but most of the decorations were handmade or provided by the church.

2. The groom was about to jump out of his pants (ha ha). The only thing he cared about was getting it on later. He didn't seem to care as much about the actual wedding part as he did about the sex later. And, okay, I understand that the boy was like 20 and had never even kissed a girl before much less sexed her up but calm down seriously.

3. The girl was not that bright and her dad and mom creeped me out major.

4. It was so funny how they all managed to avoid any sex-related language when talking about sex.

5. They need to stop having children now that the oldest is married and probably popping out kids soon. No one should have children the same age or younger than their grandkids.

All in all they seem like nice enough people, it's just that I don't think it can be that healthy to have that many kids.

Just catching up

I had an idea of what to write about and now I forgot. I have actually been doing well at work and working and not goofing off but today I kind of backslid a little. Ah me.
Anyway, Christmas was good. Bub got lots of toys and I got some good stuff too. I got this Fleur de Lis pendent and My Sims Kingdom for Wii (which I am now addicted to) and a cute little camera for my purse. We went to Oklahoma for New Year's and to see my cousin's house (which is really pretty). BT didn't get to go b/c he had to work a lot (which apparently also means he doesn't have to pick up the house any or do laundry but I digress).
I have been listening to the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. I just finished The Golem's Eye and have now started Ptolemy's Gate. This is the third time I've read/listened to these books and they are so awesome. I love Bartimaeus. He is so awesome. I've heard they are making The Amulet of Samarkand into a movie. I hope it is a good one and they don't ruin it. I haven't been able to find much about it.
Oh, and I also have starting watching Pushing Daisies, just as it is canceled, of course, It is really good and I regret not watching it. I hope they move networks or something b/c it is really clever. But I liked Dead like Me a lot too and I can't wait for the new movie. I miss that show.
Anyway, that's all I got now.
