Question: Weren't you supposed to be in Hawaii at the Lost DVD party this week?

Answer: Thanks for reminding me. I ended up declining the invite because it would have forced me to skip a week of AA and, well, I just couldn't do that to you guys so soon after we were reunited. Yep, that's just the kind of guy I am. And in the spirit of full disclosure, I didn't feel like spending 20 hours on an airplane for an event that would have been over in four hours, even if it meant sacrificing all those frequent-flyer miles. And a free Lost DVD. And three nights at some posh hotel. And a tour of the set. And... what the hell was I thinking?!?!
