Thanks, Uncle Jesse, for the awesome hair quote as a gentle reminder to myself to take some time some Saturday soon to get a freaking hair cut.

Seriously, Uncle Jesse would not be able to stand to be my friend…I must admit that, between visits, and working, and forgetting to call, and just wanting to use my Saturday for some fun every once in a while (even though I’ve promised myself to start taking it slow) I haven’t been to the hair salon since Christmas. And tomorrow, it’s MAY. MAY. Uncle J is probably cringing at the mere thought of split ends and not enough cool hair products right now. It’s been managed, with braids, and ponytails etc etc, but IT’S TIME. Hopefully sometime soon, when I remember to call and don’t have visitors.


Not that I’m complaining about visitors, mind you. I LOVE visitors. In fact, Arden is visiting for a few days next week and I could not be more excited!! I’m trying to come up with fun, Southern-California-y things to do, since she’s only been to the San Fran area (do people out here call it that?) My camera will be getting a workout, that’s for sure.

On the agenda for this weekend: cleaning (woo!) laundry (double woo!) planning for what I’m anticipating is going to be a fun and super busy weekend NEXT week (actual yay!) and maybe if I have a chance, a little R&R.

To start the relaxation process, here’s a picture of a pretty blue lake, a monorail, and some awesome 90s hair.

Uncle Jesse, you rock.

Yesterday was not only the Last Day Of Class (or, LDOC) for all my friends back at UNC, it was also my sorority’s Founder’s Day! I actually hadn’t remembered, like at all, until a cute little e-card from the lovely ladies at PiBetaPhi.org arrived in my inbox reminding me as such.

Every year, some of our girls went to a Founder’s Day tea in the spring with the other NC chapters of Pi Phi in the area (Duke, and NC State), and while the actual yes-you-have-to-go-to-this-part was a little groan-inducing, they were always really fun when we got there. Free for all brunches and silly songs are a not-so-bad morning in my book.

Unlike the craziness of sorority life in the fall with rush and a million other things going on, by this time of year formal was over and it was all about Fried Fridays at lunch (sadly, I’ve heard these are now a thing of the past), reading/laying out on the porches (I tried not to get too burnt), and the occasional CS — an awesome Pi Phi tradition that revolves around…eating cookies. YUM!

It’s times like these that I miss springtime in Chapel Hill, and especially, springtime at Pi Phi.

These girls can get you through ANYTHING

After the OMG SO MUCH MADONNA MUSIC WOAH episode of last week, it was a much calmer time at McKinley High for “Home”. Not that there still wasn’t a lot of drama, and singing, and crying (just me?) going on.

Best Moments/Quotes:

*APRIL RHOADES aka Glinda aka Kristin Chenoweth is back. Squeeeeee! I love her and her crazy, boozy perkiness. April Moments that were awesome:

Night terrors make me laugh, even though they are a totally legit thing.

“I’m sobering up, Will. I haven’t had a drink in 45 minutes.” “I’m going to go to Broadway and put on the first-ever all white production of The Wiz.” (…The Wizard of Oz?) “Oh, and I bought the auditorium. It’s now theApril Rhoades Civic Pavillion.”

*The Mercedes/Cheerio story line — especially because it showed Mercedes and Quinn being friends now, and it was really sweet.

“Might wanna start writing down my little bon-mots.” — I am Sue, I am!

In terms of Quinn — it was nice that wardrobe finally decided she’s going to be pregnant, not just put in horrible layers. Cute outfits that also showed a baby bump (she was adorable at the pep rally). Finally, sheesh.

* The Finn/Finn’s Mom/Kurt/Kurt’s Dad New Family Dynamics:

Finn (whispered): I was conceived on that bed. Finn’s mom: You were conceived on a pin-ball machine. (Hilarious)

I felt SO bad for Kurt in this whole thing — he’s trying so hard to fit in in his family, and it’s not quite working out for him. In this storyline alone:

Finn’s mom made me cry (trying to get through to Finn about Finn’s dad). So did Kurt’s dad. So did Kurt, when he saw Finn bonding with his dad. Ugh.

* Best Brittany Quip of the Night: “How do I get my cat to stop reading my diary?”

* Best Quote of the Night, Hands Down, No Contest, Because Glee UNDERSTANDS What Tarheels Have Always Said:

“I hate Duke like I hate the Nazis”

Thanks, Kurt’s Dad, for putting an excellent quote to our feelings.

PS. I know Kurt’s Dad’s name is Burt, but I like calling him Kurt’s Dad.

A final note:

If American Idol doesn’t get their act together and start ending ON TIME so my DVR doesn’t cut off the end of Glee, I’m going to freak out on someone. Having to guess whether they’ll be 2, 10 or 30 minutes over is not ok. Ugh.
