OK, so I’m a little waaaay behind in my Glee postings and trying not to face the fact that I’m just not as into the series this season as I was the last. (Things all went south for me at Grilled Cheesus…)
But for now, HOLY MOLEY! Have you heard the scuttlebutt about Dianna Agron, Lea Michele, and Cory Monteith’s racy GQ cover shoot? Parents’ groups, members of the media, and even some fans are up in arms about the spread, which you can read about (and see a slideshow) here.
… yet. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
As of this moment, I have YET to watch my recorded episode of Glee. Why? Because I’ve been up all day and night for the past 48 hours with a sick 3 year old. And I’m exhausted. Soooooo … I’m sorry to let you Gleeks down, but dem’s the brakes. (I would promise a forthcoming Gleecap, but the way this week has been going, who am I kidding?)
But fear not. I’ve decided to crowdsource this week’s analysis and leave things up to you, fearless fans!
So, in the comments, tell us what you liked or disliked about last night’s epi, and why.
I’ll see you back here soon, hopefully rested and refreshed. Later, Gleeks.

Well, the long-anticipated Britney episode has come and gone, and I’m left feeling … well, bleh.
I knew things were about to get choppy when, prior jumping in to my Tivo’ed version of Glee at 10 pm (I always watch later so I can FF through all the commercials) I spotted some chatter on the Twitosphere insinuating that the episode was, well, crap. How, I asked myself, can a Britney Spears-devoted episode of Glee, arguably the two most pleasingly corny staples of American culture, be “horrible,” as it had been deemed by some in the social media sphere?

Welcome back to the new season, Gleeks!
You may still be shaking your head over that uncanny Justin Bieber lookalike (and who can blame you, really?) but there is much more to talk about tonight, now that the long-awaited “Audition” is over. Rachel’s bangs = adorable. Santana’s boob job = debatable. Sue and Will’s short-lived alliance = predictable. The new Coach Beiste. (“That’s B-E-I-S-T-E. It’s French.”) Laudable!
There’ll be no shortage of chatter among the masses over the successes* and failures** of tonight’s show, so I’m going to go a different route. Read more…

So who’ll be the pop princess’s love interest on the show? My money’s on Puck, which could make for some interesting sparks. Oh, the anticipation!
Can you believe it? A post from me! Seems I’ve lost my blogging mojo as the drudgery of the lull between seasons sets in.
I didn’t want this blog to get completely covered by cobwebs, though, so I’m sharing a delightful E! Online post about just how excited the adorable Lea Michele is that Britney Spears is coming to Glee next season.
Oh, and did you know that Lea’s become a vegan? Yup, it’s true:
“I do a vegan diet just because I love my animals,” she explained. “I do try to work out, but I’m not a big workout fan. Glee is what keeps me super super active.”
So her job keeps her in awesome shape and lets her hang with Britney Spears? We’re jealous!
Gleeks: who do YOU want to see on the show in the year ahead??

I totally heart you. Today in social studies class, Kim R. was like, “Journey’s way cool!” and I was like, “TOTALLY!” and she was like,”I’m totally hoping they play Journey at our skating party at King’s Roller Rink!” and I was like, “For SURE.” I am also totally hoping that [name deleted] will ask me to skate with him on the Moonlight Couple to “Faithfully,” although I will totally be dying.
