The Britain’s Got Talent runner-up is conveniently on the same record label, Columbia, as the Glee cast. And who would Boyle play? “I have two words for you: Lunch. Lady,” says Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy. “I think Kurt would just die to give her a Christmas makeover. I don’t even know if she’s interested but it’s been pitched.”
Yeah, the last two weren’t on the original list, but I couldn’t find RENT and Hairspray was faaaar too expensive for assaulting my eyes again with John Travolta for the sake of my anal retentive issues with collection completion. And Tin Man has Alan Cumming and Zooey Deschanel and I am such a SUCKER for anything Oz related.
Annnd three things I wanted from ModCloth briefly went back INTO stock at about midnight last night and then the credit card I borrowed wasn’t validating and in the end I was far too frustrated for 2am in the morning and I didn’t end up getting stuff and that makes me so sad lets never discuss it again GAWD.
Now I’m home, I’ve put some washing on, I’ve ate leftover pizza and I’m sitting here watching five women argue over Lost on TV and wondering how I’m not with anyone because apparently I am such a CATCH. Look, I don’t know, someone else’s words. Someone else’s very confusing words.
Yesterday I pulled my winter blanket down from the wardrobe...
…and tonight I have it on my bed after almost a year and there’s a scent to it; not a bad one but like a perfume that I don’t wear but it tingles the memory and I know it and I remember it I remember it I remember it and then I remember it.
And oh gods did I just catch such a wave of loneliness that that I was so not prepared for and haven’t felt in months now what the fuck.

If you guessed the theme of Wednesday’s shopping list is ‘Amanda’s Getting a $300 Commissions Cheque this Week and is Spending it on Various Elaborate Costuming Endeavours and Iterations of such in Media’ then you would be absolutely correct and I ask you give yourselves a gold star.
…am I gonna have to start respecting Lady Gaga now? Why do I have to keep breaking my ‘no internet before/during/after new Glee’ policy? Or my ‘don’t look at previews/30 second music promo clips/anything’ policy?
Ladies and gentlemen, the Glee cast does Bad Romance. And I LIKED IT.
World, I have to ask: are you conspiring against me to make me utterly incapable of leaving my computer this afternoon lest something pretty/sexy stalks across my screen?
See, I don’t actually recall blinking for the entire video. And I don’t actually recall any other Christina Aguilera videos being quite like this. I mean, there was Dirty which brought the noise and sex and whatnot and Candyman which was all thinly veiled lyrics and clean, bright colours with excellent direction, but this is like an (un)holy combination of the two that Lady Gaga rubbed her gender-questionable crotch against before handing it over to mid-to-late-nineties Madonna for some ‘alone time’. I feel like I should feel very, very uncomfortable right now.
EDIT TO ADD: It all makes sense now. It’s the same guy who directed the terrifying beast that was Gaga/Beyonce’s Video Phone. Oh Jesusfuck, I guess all I can be really thankful for is that he included Xtina’s ‘dancing with shirtless men in rain/water’ staple and not Gaga’s ‘poisoning a diner full of innocents with Tiberium in order to kill one guy’ one.
And I only have 400mb left of download to get me to the 10th, when it ticks over again.
This is usually okay and manageable. However, the average Glee episode is 350mb.
Do I download the episode and use my phone for internet in the interim? Or do I wait(?!) until the 10th, almost a whole week away, to download what is promising to be an episode that could maybe kick the ‘Kurt joins the football team’ and ‘Madonna’ episodes off the top spot IN MY HEART?
