I know it has been almost a week for those in the US, but over here it was just aired last night. The anticipation was something fierce for this episode - oh wait. Hi, everyone! I'm talking about Glee. Anyway, I've had a semi-crush on Artie for some time now (love his voice - I hear he's the best dancer among the original Glee members. How ironic that his character is the one in the wheelchair. And Finn is "dancing" away.). I actually forced myself not to read recaps (but I couldn't resist watching videos of the performances on YouTube). Since I was so excited about seeing this episode after being deprived of new episodes for so long (long meaning 1 week), I decided that it was only logical (it's really not) to go berserk and just indulge in sugar decadence. In preparation for the Glee hour, I fixed myself and Marguerite a mug each of Red Hots apple cider, a big bowl of buttery cinnamon popcorn (gotta have cinnamon in the air), and a huge slab of Black Forest cake. I then proceeded to bawl through the entire show. Honestly, no other comedy has made me cry this hard. Artie! Sue and her sister! Puck! Kurt and his dad! I also drank Marguerite's cider because she didn't like it. Good for her. All that sugar! Tsk! Chip and I were texting each other the entire time ("Is it just me or is this show cry-me-a-river?" "OMG! Brit is so nice!" "What's with this episode? Even Puck is making me cry!"...). It's times like this that I really miss having my sister close by. You should have seen (or heard) us when we first discovered Josh Groban (on Ally McBeal - the first episode he appeared in). Please ask me who Josh Groban is so I can answer you with... "Who's Josh Groban?! Kill yourself! He is an angel sent from heaven to deliver platinum records unto us. And if he were here right now I'd club you to death with his Critic's Choice Award." *smiles sweetly*
Urgent PS: If you know of a really good effective way of flushing sugar out of the body, please leave a comment!
