Finding Question Mark!

So, Question Mark was going about his day, minding his own business, when he began seeing notices about something called Lost. He had this weird nagging sense that that should mean something to him, but it didn't. He got home and logged onto the internet, and began chatting with someone named "humanebean." Again there was this weird sense of deja vu, but he didn't know why he was feeling that way. And then, when he walked into his bedroom to go to bed, he found this. And was utterly confused:

Where did these books come from? Was there a theme? And how the hell would he go to bed now?? He picked up a copy of Finding Lost, and suddenly saw images of his real life flash before him, and he remembered everything -- Lost, our conversations here, how it changed his life. Was he in the sideways world, and was about to be reunited with all of us so we could finally let go and move on??

No. He'd just eaten a bad burrito that afternoon and it had made him a temporary amnesiac. But hey, we'll SAY he was in his sideways world. Way cooler. ;)

Thanks for the picture, Question Mark! I loved it!! (And I loved the cover of your copy of The Third Policeman... it's completely different from mine.)

Dude! Haven’t you read the Surgeon General’s warning on the wrapper of each and every burrito?! The possible side effects are scary, and amnesia is one of the worst. But, it’s your brain cells, so whatever. I hope it was delicious! :)

VW: Mozinil - new wonder drug clinically proven to counteract the harmful side effects of burritos. Ask your doctor is Mozinil is right for you!

Thankfully, I only ingested HALF of said poisonous burrito; mid-way through my snacking, a creepy bug-eyed man wandered into my kitchen, so I chucked the burrito at his face on an impulse.
I missed.
Thanks for posting the pic, Nikki! Ya, I dig that Third Policeman cover. I also really like the simple but striking Catch-22 cover. Fun Fact: I am actually planning on saving Our Mutual Friend for the last book I ever read!

P.S.- I found another new TV outlet to fill the LOST gap: I finally started watching Mad Men and I am enjoying it immensely!

Bravo, Mister Mark-of-the-Questioning! I am sure it will all come back to you in the end .... hmmmm .... why does that ring a bell. Reminds me of someone named Pavlov ... and makes my mouth water.

Very strange.
