Talk about an awkward stage...

So, I assume you've heard of the show "Glee," right?

Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed it. I mean, what's not to like? Singing, dancing, catchy tunes, and the cutest music teacher ever---Mr. Shuster.

But there's another reason I love this show....

You see, I was kind of in the glee club when I was back in high school. Well, not a glee club per se, since we didn't call it that. But, yes, I was in the show choir and I was also in my school's annual rock 'n roll revival show, called "Blast From the Past." (Affectionately called "Blast" by all of its participants. Yep, we were uber nerds.)

From 1997 to 2000, Blast was basically my life. I loved it. No, that's not quite right. I loooooved it. I obsessed over my audition songs and my backup parts and my costumes for each number. What can I say? I was a "gleek" before the term even existed.

Anyway, I was doing some random YouTube searches when I came across this little gem. It's a video of the opening song of Blast during my junior year. If you watch closely, you'll catch me---and all of my awkward glory---in 0:59 and 2:47 of the clip. (Be forewarned: you will absolutely SNORT at my performance. Honestly, I can't stop laughing at my 16-year-old self. AWKWARD!)

Um yeah, maybe I shouldn't have posted this video for all my friends to see...

WHAT. THE. HELL.

I propel myself back into the blogging world because I can't keep quiet about the most horrendous hairstyle on the Project Runway finale.


I'll say it again: WHAT THE FREAKING HELL IS GOING ON?

Meet Suzy Menkes---supposedly a famous fashion reporter and the guest judge on the a PR finale. Honestly, did anyone else have flashbacks of Cameron Diaz' iconic locks in "There's Something About Mary" while listening to Menkes give her critiques?

Dear God, I hope Ms. Menkes' hair isn't being styled with the same "gel" Cameron Diaz found in the movie. Oh, dear heavens...

These psycho bangs distracted me so much during the judging that I didn't even get upset when Irina ended up winning. I was too enthralled/aghast at the sight before my eyes to notice that Bitchy McBitch won the Project Runway title. (Although I grudgingly admit that Irina should've won. Her collection was the best by far.)

Well, that's it for now. Back to packing and cleaning and getting ready for my move back down to NC. Justin's coming back in less than a week!
