This week the episode of Glee was a re-run. But I watched it anyway and it made me sad, because THAT is the Glee I know and love. It's so, so, different now. Sad frowny face.
And then this morning I came across THIS. The "innocent" Lea Michele.
Are you Effing kidding me? I'm not even one to be prude about this stuff. But what made the show so amazing was it's innocence AND humor AND that dash of WRONG it always had. But it's gone from a perfect balance to every other slutty teen show out there. And this photo shoot for GQ just seals the deal. I mean, THEY PLAY 16 yr olds! I don't care if they're 20 in real life. UGH! I hate when everything GREAT in Hollywood gets destroyed.
And while I'm all worked up....I HATE THIS CONVERSATION:
Normal conversation about the housing market turns deadly...
SOMEONE: Hey, remember Jim blah blah. My friend from 20 yrs ago?
ME: um, no
S:YOU KNOW. That guy I was friends with in High school, down the block, with the red hat?
ME: ummmmm, NO.
S: YOU KNOW. His mom grounded him for prom and we used to hang out?
ME: NO! Anyway....
S: Okay, so anyway, I RAN INTO HIM!!!!! Can you believe he married has 5 kids and is now Mormon?! CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THAT!??!?! ISN'T THAT CRAAAAAAAZY?
ME: uh huh. yah sure. And?
S: So anyway, Turns out he lives in the neighborhood and just sold his house.
S: OH! He's the guy that one Christmas who came to that one party! You gotta remember THAT!
ME: NO!!!! I HAVE NO IDEA WHO HE IS! Just finish the story....
S: K, well, anyway HE sold HIS house so I am sure the market is going up....
ME: Thats dandy. So, when do you wanna go to lunch?
S: Wheneve...HEY! I know! He's the one who couldn't go to graduation because he got in that car wreck....YOU KNOW!
