Grilled Cheesus & Only The Good Die Young

It’s been too long since I’ve written about GLEE! This week looks like it’ll be much better than last week… the music in the Britany/Brittney episode was great, but the rest of it pretty much sucked.

Tonight, talking about Grilled Cheesus, family, faith, and of course, Sue’s snark. Oh, and the music!

  • “He’s my #1 Heeb…I see God every time I make out with a new chick!” -Puck
  • Aw, poor Kurt ‚̧ So sad!
  • As always, Mercedes (Amber Riley) is rockin the vocals. This song is gorgeous.
  • LOVE this line by Kurt about how God made him gay, and then God’s followers tell him it’s wrong to be who he is.
  • “They should totally go to Jew church and wear those hats and eat that salty orange stuff with their bagels”

((These Burger King breakfast commercials are so annoying.))

  • Wow, Sue getting emotional. Interesting.
  • “Now I know how Miley feels.” -Britney
  • Interesting views on God in this episode… wonder how long it’ll take for people to freak out.
  • This better be a good rendition of Papa Can you Hear Me…
  • Yes. Musicals are Lea Michele‘s forte. Yente FTW.
  • Forgot how much I love “Papa Can You Hear Me.” (Runs to download the Michael Crawford version)
  • Ha, Coach called Finn “Lurch.”
  • Wow, Kurt singing “I wanna hold your hand” is so lovely. And the montage of him and Burt is so sweet. Tearjerker!
  • Kurt (Chris Colfer) has the most BEAUTIFUL voice. Holy moley cheesus is right.

((Hilarious Planet Fitness commercial of a dude trying to make a bunny from his shoelaces!))

  • Great version of REM’s “Losing My Religion” by Finn (Cory Monteith). Takes me back to the 90’s!
  • Kurt in church is ADORABLE. Plus, that hat is totally rockin.
  • As mah mommy says, “If they played music like that, I’d go to church!” Have to agree with her on that one. Amber Riley has the best voice for gospel. Ever. I want to marry her.

((Just threatened to link mom’s quote to her email… she said she’ll kill me, disown me, and close her email acct. Might be worth it, eh?))

((Seriously hating these BK commercials. So dumb. Advertising fail.))

  • Aw, Sue with her sister… it’s touching. More nice Sue!
  • I totally have a sweater just like Kurt’s. In other news, this scene with his dad is amazing. I’m glad Mom is here for this episode ūüôā
  • “I don’t believe in God, Dad, but I believe in you. I believe in us” -Kurt
  • Another great redo… “What If God Was One of Us”… super 90’s night tonight! Can’t wait to download all of these songs.
  • Wait a second… Finn just ate CHEESUS!

Glee next week looks like fun. Ashley Parker Angel-lookalike (aka ladylips) is very cute. Looking forward to seeing more of him!

Also, I’d love it if you guys checked out lovely Miss Aunt Becky’s (of the John C Mayer fame) post on Toy With Me (another kickass site) about cancer, and how much it!!


DIY Halloween Roundup!

Even though we’ve had a bit of an Indian summer the last few days here in Boston, I can’t help thinking ahead to my first post-college Halloween.¬† I’m eagerly looking forward to crunchy leaves, more pumpkin lattes, searching for a fun costume, and hopefully a trip or two to Salem!

To get into the spirit of all things Halloween-y, here are some of my favorite DIY projects that I’ve come across lately. If you have a project to add, link up in the comments!

For spooky glassware, How About Orange has a great tutorial on using packing tape to make image transfers!


Keeping with the spooky theme, check out these Eat At Your Own Risk toppers via Etsy:


All Things Thrifty has a Woman’s Day Mag-inspired Candy Corn Wreath:

If the idea of gluing all those candy corns is too much for you (or for more wreathy inspiration), there’s a similar version on Etsy:

My Paper Crane has a tutorial and template for adorable felt ghost cozies, which you could also string up into a garland or hang from doorknobs too!


Calamity Anne has a fun tutorial on redoing an old clock to give it a Halloween feel… trip to Goodwill or Ikea for clocks, anyone?

My friend Daniela from Berkeley has a great shop, The Art Life, where she’s selling a kit to make your own mini-chipboard Halloween album, complete with embellishments and papers… and it’s on sale! Also, check out the rest of her shop– great stuff!

something wicked scrapbook

If you love pumpkins but not the mess of carving them, Calamity Anne also has a tutorial on painting decorative pumpkins:


At The Crafty Cupboard, Melanie has an easy-to-follow tutorial for this wonderful & inexpensive spiderweb table runner:


Yet another project from Brooke at All Things Thrifty: an easy and temporary way to “trick” out your existing decor! (Yes, I love her stuff!)


Last but certainly not least, Boston-based Papercrave has a tutorial and printables for a lovely paper garland. For fun variations on this, you can alternate the cutouts with candy corn, add some glitter, sub printed halloween paper, or string it on colored ribbon!


Visual Inspiration- The Bold and The Beautiful

Part of the reason my blog has been relatively sparsely populated is that I’m attempting to design my own website (omgwtfbbq!) It’s almost as cool as when Mommy Wants Vodka pulled a John C. Mayer… only more on par with my pulling a Glee, which doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, sad.

In the–lengthy and somewhat painful–process of designing, I’ve put together some gorgeous inspiration photos. If you know whose these are (or they’re yours), please do speak up… can’t take credit for any of these, damnit! In the meantime, here’s part one of my inspiration file…


Party like it’s 1988!

I’m 22 today, kids. The big two-dee-two. Thanks to these suckas for bringing me into the world 22 years ago!

me, mom and dad

Aw, presh

And also, this is pretty awesome… take that, Perez Hilton AND Oh No They Didn’t!!

Glee Season 2 has begun.

Time to rejoice, my fellow Glee(ks).

New York… Gaga… other Asian with ABS (!!)… oh Glee, how you distract me from doing anything remotely productive (other than blogging, of course).

That being the case, let’s do a little live-blogging, shall we?

  • I could do without so much Artie rap but OMG HOT BLONDE GLEE DUDE! I’ll be your groupie any day, bebeh.
  • Have I said how much I love Puck lately? nomnomnommm.
  • I ‚̧ Sue Sylvester
  • Haha, don’t be a Sue commercial… “next time you meet an artist, smell him”
  • New football coach? Hellooo, issues!
  • “Boobs McGee”… totally been called that. Love Naya.
  • Oh scnap, girl fight! That was nasty!

commercial for You Again… want to see that!

  • lots of bewb talk on Glee this season… interesting.
  • Rachel (Ms. Lea Michelle) is¬†driving me a weee bit nuts. Such a self-centered biznatch tonight.
  • Dayyyum Sunshine is gooood.
  • ew self-depreciating relationship drama. so high school.
  • New favorite version of “What I Did for Love”… god damn. New audition song for me!
  • Brittany as Britney Spears, omgah!

This premiere was a doozy, so totally looking forward to this season of Glee!

Oh, and NCIS LA is using the music from¬†Requiem¬†For a Dream as their chase scene music… weird… but awesome.

It’s GLEE, bitches!


GLEE, bitches!

Today’s post is a specially glee(ful) one. ¬†You see, if you haven’t been reading Mommy Wants Vodka and following her absotively-posilutely-fricking-amazing pranking of Mr. John C. Mayer, you are missing out. ¬†It’s led to a new entry on Urban Dictionary, asskicking SEO results, and of course, the coinage of the term, being “John C. Mayer-d.”

Well, I’ve decided that I need to go after a BIG GUN. No, not Tim Gunn (although that would have been quite the witty wordplay right there).

It’s time to John C. Mayer … GLEE!

Glee, the epic musical-dramedy-sitcom-soap opera, began on Fox last season.  Having been a choir geek in high school, Glee touches a special chord (ha) with me.  It follows the journey of a bunch of high school show choir misfits: the jock, the aspiring Broadway diva, the not-so-closeted gay, the preggo cheerleader, etc., and pairs the chaotic happenings of their life with some rockin music.

Not only does Glee’s cast have some big name Broadway stars– think Lea Michelle and Matthew Morrison— but Glee also pulled in some relative unknowns who have insane amounts of talent. Oh, and did I mention the mayjah hotties on Glee?

Dear Glee stars Corey Monteith, Matthew Morrison, and Mark Salling: please marry me. Or take me out on a Glee-themed date for my birthday. Or just let me have your mini Glee babies. That’d work too.

You see, unlike John C. Mayer or Kanye O. West, Glee’s stars are down-to-earth far less ego-driven. ¬†That gets Glee a few more points in my book, no real-life drama queens there! Oh, and have I mentioned the incredible music Glee managed to snag in season 1? Here’s a little rundown: “Over the Rainbow,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Let’s Get Physical (with Olivia Newton John, holla!),” “Lady is a Tramp,” “Bad Romance,” “Somebody to Love,” and my latest Boston fav, “Sweet Caroline.”

Oh dear Glee, this show is amazing. If you haven’t watched season 1 of Glee yet, GET ON IT. Season 2 of Glee airs this week (Glee-gasm!) and some of the premiere songs have already been leaked!

And one last thing? Glee, you’ve been John C. Mayer-d. Ohhh, schnap.
