11 [Glee] Songs



I believe I have confessed before that not only do I watch Glee, I also enjoy it. Eek! It is just so darn catchy, and albeit unrealistic, I can't get enough.  One of the things that impresses me the most about the show is the way that the songs directly align with the story lines.

Last night was the season 3 finale.  This got me thinking about my favorite Glee covers from this season.  The final tally looks like this:

  1. Shake It Out (Florence + the Machine)
  2. Rumor Has It/ Somebody That I Used to Know (Adele)
  3. How Will I Know (Whitney Houston)
  4. We Found Love (Rihanna)
  5. Somebody That I Used to Know (Gotye)
  6. Tongue Tied (Grouplove)
  7. Glory Days (Bruce Springsteen)
  8. You Get What You Give (New Radicals)
  9. Dinosaur (Ke$ha)
  10. In My Life (The Beatles)
  11. What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction)

Lessons learned from watching Psycho


Psycho was on t.v. all day yesterday. I learned the following:





  • don't steal $40,000
  • don't stay at the Bates Motel
  • don't stay at any motel that has 12 cabins, and they are all empty
  • don't stay in cabin 1
  • don't stay in the room next to (connected to) the office ... there is probably a peephole
  • check room for peepholes 
  • don't accept dinner invitations from Norman Bates
  • don't eat sandwiches with Norman Bates
  • don't take a shower
  • don't visit creepy house next to motel
  • when running from a crazy murderer, don't run to basement
  • don't tap a little old lady on the shoulder ... (spoiler alert) she is actually a skeleton
