Sadly, there will be no Gleecap updates for a day or three. I've exhausted my stash of them for the moment and need a few days to rebuild. I've got almost-days-off coming up later this week though (in a row! It is terribly exciting.) so I hope to watch more. I'm so close to finishing season one and I'm curious how things will all fall out. I mean, Figgins did threaten to shut down the club if they didn't win the competition, and there is
a season 2 (the first part's DVDs are currently sitting on my DVD shelf to prove it) so I guess that's kind of a no-brainer, but still. So many shenanigans left!
I'm kind of enjoying not knowing a whole lot about what's going on in this part of the show. I'm hoping my enthusiasm continues even as we get to the later parts of the second season where I've seen some of the episodes already so I don't have as many surprises in store for me.
I'm also wondering how my gleecaps would have been different if I didn't know anything at all about the future of the show. Like, would I have hated Puck more if I didn't know that he kinda simmers down a bit and is less of an ass? Would I have been more outraged about poor Kurt never getting any action if I didn't know that Darren Criss was gonna warbler his way into the poor boy's life?
Anyways, we shall see.
In other news, I went to a con today! It was fun. My co-con-goer friend cosplayed as Misa from Death Note and she was awesome. It was her first con and she pulled together her costume for $23 including kick-ass $5 boots and she looks fantastic. I am in awe. I was not dressed up in any fun way at all, which is sad. Oh well. Even if I had planned a decent cosplay costume I've been too busy and exhausted lately to even try to pull it off.
We have plans to try to figure out good costumes for next year, though. I would love to go as Sherlock and John, as would she. The problem is that the boys in the first series are definitely dressed for cold weather sleuthing and it is a very warm-weather con. Fluffy jumpers are not good for this con. Heh. I was also thinking of River Song from DW, though she doesn't have a really iconic outfit to choose from, other than the space suit from her first sighting, and I don't wanna do that. I've got the hair for her, so that's a start. Same with Kaylee from Firefly, I'm not sure which of her "looks" to choose from, but I do have a cute parasol already. Ooooh, or Mycroft Holmes! A sharp suit, a smug expression, and an umbrella! That would be perfect! OOOH! Or IDRIS! OMG! I would LOVE to be Idris! The costume would be tough to make though. I think I'd have to sew it rather than just collect pre-made pieces like I could get away with for Mycroft or John or Kaylee. I do not sew well. At all.
I bought about 4 boxes of pocky (POCKY!) and one of the Fushigi Yugi mangas I didn't have yet, as well as 2 t-shirts. One of the tardis (it is sparkly!) and one of Maslow's hierarchy of zombie needs. I can post pictures later this week is anyone wants.
Anyways, after the con friend and I returned to my place and ate dinner (roasted eggplant and brussel sprouts, and channa masala) while watching the live-action Death Note movies. 'Twas fun and heart-wrenching.
All in all a good day off. Wish I could have more than just one day, but I must be patient. That time will come.
OHOHOH! And I now am the proud recipient of KURT AND MERCEDES VOGUE WALLPAPER! Heee! I am kind of amazed that people find the recaps entertaining enough to read, and now dizilla
has rocked my world with a desktop after a I drooled a couple recaps ago. Squee!
