A Glee Realization

Just watched the Glee finale "Sectionals" (or was it a mid-season finale?) on Hulu. While watching the "My Life Would Suck without You" number, I realized something. Actually, at first I just thought the choreography was really mismatched. But THEN I realized that they were doing a medley of all the dances they've done that season! There was hairography from "Hair," some wheelchair bouncing from "Proud Mary," and even some stuff from the non-teacher-approved "Push It."
Don't believe me? Have a look for yourself:


Was this completely obvious and I was totally clueless? Or is this a revelation for you too?

So Cute

(Click for larger)

I'm kind of in love with this playroom, found here.
For my future children.
... or myself.
Yea, just for me.

Whoopsie


Readers, all two of you, I am so sorry. I have note posted the 30 Rock recaps like I said I would. And I'm out of town this weekend, so... you'll have to bear with me just a bit longer. Next week is a buzzzzzzy week. Bzzzzz. (I'm thinking about bees again), but I have made a promise to you lovely people and I wont let you down! I just... don't know when I'll fulfill said promise.
Don't hate me, reader (I assume that one of you has left after this post, especially if you didn't get the Arrested Development reference).
Love always,
RN

PS: Would an adorable picture of my kitties lighten the blow? Let's try it:

Awwwwww!

Deal of the Day!


So this week was a double-30 Rock-- yippee! Unfortunately, I'm kind of overwhelmed with schoolwork, so the recaps wont be out until this weekend. I know, I know, try to contain your tears.
To tide you over, here's my latest home decor steal, straight from one of my favorite home decor haunts, Crate and Barrel! They're having MAJOR sales right now, and not just on holiday stuff! Check out this pillow I got, for... drumroll.... $10!
Isn't is gooorgeous? It's not just stripes, it's flaps of felt. It looks so much better in person. Right now it's plopped on a hideous section of a couch that's acting as an armchair... and has a gaping hole in the cushion. So the pro/con (depending on the way you look at it) of this pillow is it makes me want a new armchair! Maybe something purple... or blue...
Anyways, grab this pillow for yourself here and check back here in a few days for not one but two 30 Rock recaps!

The One Thing No One Else Has

If you read this blog, you know I have many pet peeves. Here's one, courtesy of the played-waaay-too-often promo for some movie or TV show or something. If you want, skip to the :16 mark.

"We can give her the one thing nobody else [ever] has; we can love her." [I swear they say "ever" on the TV version, which is slightly different].

Really? No one else has love? Seriously? Nobody else in the entire town, continent, or world has love. I just can't even fathom how many hard-core death metal albums the writers had to listen to to come up with this depressing statement.
And shouldn't it be "We can give her the one thing nobody else has: love"? The original way isn't technically wrong, it just sounds... sloppy. C'mon, writers. I know you're depressed about maybe having graduated Cum Laude from Harvard or something, and now you having a job writing for some crappy CW show, but have just an ounce of forethought. The commercial is on every single commercial break on The CW, and you couldn't wrestle out any somewhat meaningful and/or sensical dialogue to entice viewers?

C'mon.

Get it together.

PS: Am I the only one who thinks the mom looks the same age as the daughter?

Chilling

Me right now:
- Glass of iced tea
- Salt and Cracked Pepper chips (my new obsession)
- Entertainment Weekly
- Friends rerun

Could life get any better?

Wait, don't answer that.

What are you doing, readers?

Thank you, Eagle Eyes!


No, Eagle Eyes isn't my Native American friend; it's a survey group for the lovely American Eagle. I joined a while ago on a whim, and occasionally they send me quick surveys that I'm happy to complete. It's actually kind of fun, since I love advertising. It's like getting a behind-the-scenes look at marketing!
Anyway, they sent me a gift! I feel so special! Along with the tousands of other Eagle Eyes participants.... but if you know me, you know I love free stuff. Especially if that free stuff is usable (and still has a tag on it-- for $20!).


So thanks again, American Eagle! And if you haven't already, join Eagle Eyes here!

Note: They didn't pay me for this post, I just love sharing my free stuff.
