Tweeters, I’ve done myself dirty. Some readers may call me a hypocrite. Others, who don’t know what that word means, may call me a liar. I ran my mouth about how stupid foursquare is, and now I am checking in at my place of work and making sure to only post my check-ins to Twitter if they are at a cool place (hint: not that often). I trashed Justin Bieber at one point, and now I have to admit the little bugger ain’t so bad. I made fun of people having sex in Samuel L. Paley Library and … just kidding.
This all may make me sound like a bad person, which I kind of am, but I don’t think we can make that judgment based solely on this information. Don’t I deserve a pat on the back and maybe a few new followers that aren’t porn-bots for admitting my shortcomings? This isn’t hypocrisy – this is growth.
I feel comfortable sharing what I am about to share: I am totally in love with “Glee.” Yes, I may have questioned its quality at one point. Am I allowed to blame my initial weariness of the show on the fact that I used to live with a girl who obnoxiously, and at the sound level of a megaphone, sang the scale while in the shower? Because I’m definitely blaming it on her.
One last thing about the hypocrisy or growth or lying – as much as I actually do hate live tweeting, live tweeting for “Glee” totally rules. Are you shakin’ your head? I sure am – shaking it up and down.
@musicndchinolas: artie is so g it makes NO sense #glee
You are so right! It makes me want to pee my pants, you are so right. No wonder he always gets hotties to date him – he is G without being G. I would be all over that, too.
@yeezyswag_davis: why the f— does #glee keep finding its way back on the trends list!?? #enddddddit lol
Um, because “Glee” is the bomb? That might be why. Are you ever trending? You don’t have to answer that.
@jamie_santoro: Watching #Glee instead of writing my paper. Sorry American Political Parties, but light song-filled comedy wins.
I support your decision to watch “Glee” instead of writing your paper, but what do you mean by “light”? This show is revolutionary! I don’t appreciate the only thing left in life that makes me feel any type of human compassion being called a “light” comedy.
@patmcpeak: Geek Cred? What happened to old fashioned Street Cred? Soon it’s gonna be Glee Cred. #smh
Good idea, silly! See, you are probably just like the old me – talking smack about “Glee” on Twitter and running home every Tuesday night to hide under your blankets and watch the new episode while you immediately search YouTube for all the songs as soon as the show is over. You should take a lesson from “Glee” and just love who you are.
To be honest I am surprised I haven’t gotten a slushy to the face yet. But at Temple, it is probably just a punch in the face. That might be better – at least I wouldn’t have to wash my clothes.
