A porn star or a drag queen

You know I usually don't care for Glee.
But okay. This week was on track. There were a few moments of utter despair and molestation of my ears (Umbrella and Singing in the Rain do NOT go together. I wanted to claw my ears out) but come on. Gweneth? She was awesome. I actually prefer her over Shue. A lot. And can we talk about her for a minute? This is the most personality she's ever shown...in anything...ever. Not that I didn't like her before this but I really like her now. She's made herself relevant again in the pop culture world and I love when people do that so successfully. (Christina, take note)
And come on. Conjunction Junction. That was genius. GENIUS.
So I'm glad that just when I had about given up all hope on this show, they have an episode that was great and made sense. The wit was there, the writing was so much better, and it was just a better episode. And I think there should always be wars over tots. If the once relevant Napoleon Dynamite taught us anything, it's that tots are important. And I fully support fighting for what's important to you at that moment.
What's important to me at this moment? A great many things. Being close to someone. Phone conversations with the people I love that show me they love me too. Text messages that are only smiley faces that tell me someone's thinking about me. A great song. A great episode of television. The video on FailBlog of the kangaroo kicking the child. Cooking something delicious that doesn't make me feel like a fatty. Christmas spilling out all over this city. Thanksgiving. Relaxing. A good pen.
So I'm gonna go practice my bi-polar rants and have a little faith for another week that this show could actually becoming something that matters.
