Things I Learned By Watching Glee

Okay. You were right, Amy Jo; I love Glee! I spent two days this weekend watching it and laughing and almost crying (Have I ever told you how quick to tears I am sometime? I could write an entire post about all of the TV commercials that have made me cry.). I've watched the first three DVD of Season 1 Volume 1 (now I'm waiting for Netflix to send me #4), and I've already learned some important life lessons from it.

#1--Do not watch Glee and think that you'll get any writing done or art finished or floors vacuumed no matter how much you need to do all three.

#2--"You know, it's not a bad thing to want a real life, Bill, and to have a glue gun that works!" This lovely quote is from Will's wife (does she really call him Bill here? And what is her name? And why don't I know her name but I totally know the name of the guidance counselor who has a huge crush on Will? Yes, it's Emma. Yes, when I was pregnant with all three of my boys, before I found out they were going to be boys, their name was Emma.) and it is so true! It isn't a bad thing to want a real life. For me, a real life would be writing full time, making art, singing with the birds in the trees, and having a glue gun that works!

#3--"I don't think any one decision makes your life. Unless you accidentally invent some kind of zombie virus or something." Finn is the genius behind this quote. He's right. One decision doesn't make your life. And sometimes, you can make a decision about your life, and then you can change your mind later on and change your life completely. Unless you do invent some kind of zombie virus; if you do that, you can only hope that you run faster than the zombies do.

#4--I have a new love. Seriously. Move over Hugh Jackman 'cause Matthew Morrison is moving in! I really think TSH would enjoy this show, but I'm afraid to watch it with him because I might be drooling over a singing and dancing Spanish teacher. Madre mia!

Okay, since I don't have any Glee to watch tonight, I am going to write. But please don't blame me if my characters break into song in the middle of a scene.

Yay! I'm glad you like it! I'm a bit behind on episodes since I haven't watched last week's one yet.

Oh, and I gave you an award on my blog! :)

Okay, I'm convinced. I have to watch Glee. I feel like a bit of a loser because everyone watches it but me. I'm so out of the loop now.

When is it on again? I don't want to be that dork that doesn't understand the references to cool stuff.

I LOVE Glee! And I agree, Mr. Shue is one hottie man! And he sings and dances. You can watch the past 5 episodes on Hulu.

Hehe, how fun! I have last night's episode recorded, ive never seen the show but finally succumbed to all the raves ;) sounds like it might be a dangerous habit to pick up though ;)

sadly I have yet to see glee yet. although I have heard so much about it. After hearing so much about it and feeling out of the loop I put it on my netflix que but every time i look at my que it says it is a very long wait. :(
