How do you two not have a show on Bravo?

Project Runway is dead to me now.

Moving on.

I don't really like Lady Gaga (her beats are boring at best) and I don't really like Glee (more on that later), but for some reason, this is pretty much the greatest thing I've ever seen. I can't stop watching it. It's just... perfect.

I mainlined all of season one of Glee this past weekend and I'm still not entirely sure what I think of it. My family seems convinced that I should love it, having a strong musical theatre background myself, but I just... don't. Here's the thing - I love most of the cast, most of the musical numbers, and most of the humor. I can't stand the serious parts, though, and the few characters I dislike? Are the main ones. Namely Will, Rachel, and Finn. Quinn and Puck get added to their hated ranks whenever baby drama crops up, but are mostly loved. Kurt, Mercedes, Tina, Artie, Santana, Brittany, and Emma are all cool with me pretty much always (with the exception of Kurt when he was staring forlornly in the window of Finn's house while Burt and Finn watched a game. I love Kurt and all - seriously, love him - but c'mon.), which of course means that they don't get as much screentime as the golden couple and the best-teacher-in-the-world-who-never-actually-seems-to-be-an-awesome-teacher. I'm still watching it, so I guess that means something. I dunno. It's kind of addictive, even if it does make me groan and literally bang the back of my head against the couch at least once an episode.

Oh, and of course, Sue Sylvester is hilarious. She needs to lay off the hair jokes, though. Shit's getting old.

And I totally ship Puck/Kurt. I know, it makes no sense. I don't get it either. But I ship it hard.

In other music news, Jimmy Eat World. Is. Coming. To. Orlando. Four days before Jaime and my's anniversary, no less. We were planning on taking a weekend at Disney in celebration then anyway. It works out perfectly. Already bought my tickets and everything. Eeeee.
