I'm boooooored.

real bored. the friday before a long weekend is always one of the longest, dumbest days ever.

so. I read on TWoP that there's some freaky message you read if you get the book an occurrence at owl creek bridge and check the first word on pages 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42, which are the lost numbers. and I googled the hell out of that and can't find it. unfortunately, I don't have that just laying around somewhere. do any of you? it's driving me mad. oo, missuzj, you're a teacher...do you have it?

if you ever find the answer to the Lost question, let me know...

Ooo. The Lost question is a fun mystery. I know "An Occurance..." was a short story by Bierce about a soldier about to be hung off Owl Creek Bridge. (where else?) I think the twist ending inspired the writer of the movie Brazil. You can download the story here: http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/375

I watched An Occurrence at Owl Creeek Bridge in college for film class. I don't remember the year of the movie, but it was older and in black and white. Because I know a lot of you want to read the story, I won't give anything away. I just want to say that I never thought of nor can I think of any resemblences to the show Lost. I do know that when I saw a copy of the book being read in an episode of Lost, I remembered that I saw the short film in film class in college. And, I often drive by a bridge visible from Rt. 202 in Chester County that looks like the one in the short film.
Just for the hell of it, I think I'll post now and consider myself tagged.

Sorry babe--I have no idea. I have a copy of the short story--but it's in an anthology--so the page number thing is useless.

Isn't mac and cheese the nectar of the gods? I think I'll go eat some right now.

I love your at the bank cashing a one million dollar check answer. And I love scalloped potatoes and milkshakes too, but made the vegan way.

there aren't even 42 paragraphs in Owl Creek Bridge, let alone 42 pages.

so, taking the first word of paragraphs 4, 8, 15, 16 and 23, you get "The Peyton Suppose The A."

this, of course, is an anagram for "Oh, a teepee pops thy nuts." mystery solved.
