glee'd about glee

i dont like most of todays 'pop' music. i think its inane. but im watching glee and suddenly the song 'single ladies' by beyonce is making sense to me... in a different way. i dont think a song about liking it and should've having put a ring on it is a great song. but in the context of a gay teenager in a sequinned unitard singing it. it makes sense. im blabbering. but point being thanks to glee im probably going to be singing along with a lot more songs now. *shrug* musicals work for me :D
anything other than high school musical which i still think is retarded. bad disney. no chocolate for you.

white christmas - here to stay

hit the borders closing down sale just in time. today was the last day. 90% off. i got the leonard cohen book for 90p. i didnt even know he'd written books. looking fwd to it (can just imagine it all in his drooly drooly voice)...after all the millions of lib books iv got to get through. just got done with 'a good school' by richard yates. so good. plenty of latent homosexuality.
also got the dr horrible comic (2.99 - its weird how im ok with paying full price for certain must have new comics. i prefer my novels on sale/second hand) at ok comics. its growing on me. my favourite is still forbidden planet, then travelling man..then ok. but the upstairs has many many 50p bins of back issues. i can see it growing on me more and more... its got this weird posh vibe tho. unlike forbidden planet where iv had fun conversations with people. this is a very keep to yourself type place.
also got started on the graphic language of neville brody.
design books are just better than other books (of the non fiction variety).
ps. havent fallen down yet. walked so slow (slippery pavements). legs feel like iv been doing the merengue.

christmas 24

knew i was back in the uk when i was in a queue in heathrow with 2 men behind me grousing big time about how theres too much stuff in coffee these days, when all you really want is a bog standard cuppa, a nice cup of black coffee...cheese was easy in the old days, you just got a piece of cheddar and now there are hundreds and this is a reason to really really hate life.
also i fell asleep on the short flight to manchester. and kind of twitched awake suddenly...and the cute old couple next to me got all concerned (it might have looked like a mild fit mebbe) and she was all: are you okay? me: yeah i fell asleep... it was nice.
the x factor final was on sunday. does the name joe mcelderry mean anything to anyone outside this tiny island? he's a girly kind of boi... cheryl cole cries over him as she does over everything.
christmas 24 is name of the channel movies 24 for the month :)
