*Written June 5 -- sorry, a bit behind on posting!
Ok, so this post is exact opposite of the last. Sometimes, no matter how old you're body feels, it's good to throw in the towel and behave like a teenager. I did so last night with my younger sister as my accomplice. We filed into a stadium along with scores of people half our age for the performance of Glee Live!
My sis isn't as much of a fan as I am. She's just in love with one character - Blaine, who plays the gay love interest of Kurt, who attends an all-male private school. She actually likes him because she's a bit obsessed with Harry Potter and Darren Criss, who plays Blaine, was also part of a musical spin-off of the Harry Potter series. So, she probably isn't an official "gleek," while I definitely am.
I usually watch each week. If not at the time it's on, then I watch online later in the week (I'm still living in the dark ages without a DVR.) I know all the characters. I know all the songs they've sang, the duets they've done, which ones are couples this week. I admit that I do like the escape of the teenage drama, but I watch the show mostly for the music. I just love to listen to music -- whether it's Bach or Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys or Ray Charles, Toby Keith or Roy Orbison, Elvis or the Oak Ridge Boys, Dave Matthew Band or Jason Mraz. I could go on. What would life be without a sountrack to go with it?
Anyway, back to Glee. The show wasn't as exciting as I had anticipated and way shorter than I'd anticipated at about an hour and 15 minutes. However, it was a fun night going with my sis and going back a few years. :)
