Monday Melange

He's the man you love to hate on "Lost"...but what "Lost" fan would deny that he's an incredible actor? Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus, has once again been nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor. Last year, he lost...there's that word again! castmate Terry O'Quinn, who plays John Locke.

This year, Emerson is up against William Shatner (Boston Legal); Ted Danson (Damages, Zeljko Ivanek (Damages) and John Slattery (Mad Men). Any of those actors would have to go some to top Emerson's acting job on "Lost."

Here's an article about reaction to Emerson's nomination.

"Lost" itself is up for an Emmy for Best Drama Series. The show's competition?
Boston Legal,Damages,Dexter, House and Mad Men.

I'm disappointed that Matthew Fox wasn't nominated...I think he's done an incredible acting job on the show during the past season.

Other stuff to tell you...

--Julie Anne Fidler, who formerly blogged at "Fidler on the Roof," is blogging again at a new spot: Caffeine, Jesus and Pontification.

--Chaplain Andrews,a blogging U.S. Army Chaplain currently serving with the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, is devoting Mondays to blogging about military marriages--something that's sorely needed.

--Can anyone tell me if/why I should get into Twitter? What's the need for it? Why do you like it?

--For chocolate addicts everywhere: a memo pad that looks like a chocolate bar.

--More gleefully cringe-inducing circa 1970's independent Christian albums in today's edition of Divine Vinyl at Purgatorio.

--Do you love historical romance? Robin Lee Hatcher tells us about a new blog that will be just the thing for you.

--My husband and son got up close and personal over the weekend with baseball sensation Josh Hamilton. Thanks to a mutual friend, Doug and Justin had dinner with Hamilton after the Texas Rangers/Minnesota Twins game last Friday night. Apparently not only does the young man have a wonderful Christian testimony, but he's a genuinely nice guy.

Have a wonderful Monday!

I'm jealous (in a good way) that Doug got to spend time with Josh Hamilton. Let's not forget that he was a Cincinnati Red first! haha. I was sad when the Reds got rid of such a great player and also a great guy.

Also, Ben Linus "is" the guy a person loves to hate. I hope he does well in his bid for the award.

Be well,

Ben is up against some tough candidates this year, but we're pulling for him. He's really an exceptional actor.

Are you in MInnesota? I am. We watched that young man on TV and just about fell off our chairs when he gave all the praise to Jesus! Amen what a testimony.

God bless-
