7 Tips for black Friday shoppers.

Hello my lovely bloggers,

As black approaches just hours away i just wanted to write a quick blog of some tips to be safe of this crazy day.

1.DO NOT BRING A PURSE! just because its a big shopping day doesn't mean there isn't criminals out there looking to snatch purses. so keep the purses at home and slip your debit/credit card in your pocket.

2.LEAVE YOUR JEWELRY AT HOME! if you have a nice wedding band or neckless keep it in your jewelry box many woman reported snatched jewelry the past 4 years.

3.If you are buying big electronics BRING SOMEONE ALONG WITH YOU! never go shopping for big electronics alone! it is really easy for people to take a buggy with a tv in it when your alone in the parking lot.

4.PREGNANT WOMAN SHOULD STAY HOME! if you are expecting a baby whether you are 2 months or 8 months i advise you to please stay home people are quick to trample people rushing through the doors and i have heard of womaning losing their babies or dying because they were trampled on.

5.DO NOT PUSH PEOPLE! if you are shopping and you can't quiet reach something do not push! it doesn't solve anything and it cause the person in front of you to get hurt.

6.DRESS WARM! If you plan on standing in line dress warm and make sure you have a cup of JOE.

7.HAVE EVERYTHING PLANNED! if you want certain things make a list of what you are going to get and where everything is.

Those are my tips I hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving and please please please be safe if you are going out shopping later tonight.

Review/ Recap: Glee; Duets.

Hello my lovely bloggers,

Heres another Glee Review of Duets.

In the Episode Duets we learn that Puck has been put into juvenile jail for driving his mom’s car into a convenience store and driving off with the ATM. He did wah? So Will then welcomes Sam Adams into glee club and Quinn has this look like she’s interested but yet intimidated at the same time. The glee students new assignment for the week is a duet which has also been made into a competition with the grand prize of dinner for two at everyone’s favorite restaurant “breadsticks”. Kurt welcomes Sam into glee by telling him has instincts and 3 of them are his voice, trends in men’s fashion, and when it comes from a bottle. After Kurt pushes the comfort level he apologizes and tells him he’ll make it up if he teams up with him for a good chance of winning. Brittany and Santana are in the room KISSING! Yes lady and gents they are kissing but they don’t mention anything about being lesbian Santa comes right out to say she’s only kissing her because she needs something warm beneath her since puck is in the slammer. Santana asks Mercedes to be her duet partner and she agrees to. Finn tells Kurt to back off Sam a little because he is making a big bulls eye on him to be made fun of if he sings with him. Kurt then goes on back to when Finn called him a name in the basement and Finn apologizes and tries to get Kurt to understand him and says of he does sing with him he will get so much crap from everyone he will have to quit glee club.

Finn and Rachel Sing “Don’t go breaking my heart” for practice as their duet and Rachel then says she’s not a nice person and selfish and wants Sam to win the competition so he can feel like he belongs and betters their chances of winning nationals. Tina tells Mike that they are going to sing a duet together and Mike freaks out that he can’t sing and tells Tina all he does is dance around her. Brittany butters up Artie to have him as a duet partner by telling him they are boyfriend girlfriend. Finn tries to convince Sam not to pair up with Kurt because if he does he might get a lot of crap from it and the Sam fires back that first he tells him that Glee will make him popular and now he is telling him he will get killed. Sam tells Finn that he gave Kurt his word and that’s that and walks out of the locker room to get splashes with a slushy. Quinn helps Sam clean up and they both have a nice conversation with each other. Kurt starts taking care of his dad by feeding him healthy food and making sure he is relaxed. He talks to his dad about Sam and His dad sides with his dad with the reason that he found out Kurt wasn’t completely honest and Carol (Finns Mother) told him that Kurt had a crush on Finn and wasn’t afraid of showing it. Kurt blew up saying he can’t be friendly with straight guys because the homophobic people might get mad. When his dad tells him singing with Sam might not be a good idea Kurt gets mad because he is the only open gay kid in town and he still can’t be himself. His dad tells Kurt until he finds someone like him he has to get used going at it alone Kurt gives in.

Mercedes and Santana performs “River deep, Mountain high” as their duet with an awesome choreographed dance. Kurt walks into the shower room where Sam is and tells him he is free to do a duet with someone else. Rachel and Finn put their minds together to figure a way to get Sam to win and decide to do an offensive bad song. Tina goes to Artie asking him to sing a duet with him and Artie quickly denies her request. Kurt sings a duet with himself, Le Jazz hot with two personalities. Which was flipping amazing! Sam and Quinn spend some alone time in the class room practicing a duet an attempted kiss scares Quinn off because she just got her life back and she is not ready for what is about to come between her and Sam. Tina and Mike perform “Sing” as their duet and is perfect for Mikes situation and makes a great debut to Mikes voice. Finn confronts Sam about trying to kiss Quinn and tells him he messed up but insist they he tries to sing with Quinn. Rachel talks to Quinn about Sam telling her that singing with Sam would keep her at the top of the pyramid and winning the competition. Quinn Fires back at Rachel asking her what is her angle because her winning means she will lose and she knows Rachel doesn’t like losing. Rachel simply says she just wants healthy competition for the team While Finn tells Sam he’s not saying he will win be maybe second place. Sam goes to Quinn to apologize and asks to sing together while promising the mistake won’t happen again. Artie tell Brittany that he isn’t over Tina yet and Brittany tells Artie that she has a solution and picks Artie up and takes Arties virginity away. Finn and Rachel sing their “horrible” duet of “With you I’m Born again” with insensitive costume choices, nobody likes what they did and they pretend to act shocked when they are told this. Sam and Quinn then perform their duet “lucky” with a cute intro of Quinn helping Sam with the Guitar and just a cute connection through the whole song. Santana is obviously upset and jealous Sam and Quinn AND Artie and Brittany. Santana tells Artie that Brittany is only using him for his voice and He gets really upset. Brittany insist that she wanted to go to breadsticks with him and was going to order one really long string of spaghetti and has been practicing nudging a meatball across the table like in “lady and the tramp”. Artie then tells her that taking his virginity away for mark of how many guys she slept with was insensitive and having sex meant a lot to him because after his accident they were insure if he can even do that and it was a miracle that he could and she walked all over it. Brittany apologizes and Artie said he withdrew out of the competition and leaves her standing alone. The Glee club vote and the winners are Sam and Quinn. Everyone is upset and Rachel pretends to be upset with everyone else. Rachel talks to Kurt and tells him they are more similar than he thinks and tells him that they are going to win nationals this year because they have him, and there are twelve people that love him exactly the way he is. Rachel wants to sing a duet with Kurt of a song with all the things they love just for love. Sam and Quinn go to breadsticks for their free dinner. Sam and Quinn talk about things and he admits that he put lemon juice in his hair when he found out he was moving to try and look cool. Quinn tells Sam his hair looks cute and takes the certificate off the table and tells Sam he is paying when he asks why she says “A gentlemen pays on the first date” which I found to be extremely cute! Brittany is eating spaghetti alone behind them. Rachel and Kurt sing “happy days are here again” to close the show as they show all the kids of Glee.

I absolutely love this episode! It shows everyone’s personality so well in little time. The duets were outstanding and lovable. I will have to add it to my top ten when the second season is over. :D

1. Mercedes and Santana Lopez, River Deep – Mountain High by Ike and Tina Turner
2. Rachel and Kurt, Get Happy by Judy Garland
3. Rachel and Kurt, Happy Days are Here Again by Barbra Streisand

5. Rachel and Finn, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart by Elton John and Kiki Dee

Review/ Recap: Glee; Grilled Cheesus

Hello my lovely blog friends,

I am going to try and make this as short and straight to the point as I can. (no promises)

Grilled cheesus starts off with Finn making a grilled cheese sandwich and when it was done there was a picture of Jesus on it so he thought he would pray to this grilled cheeses in hopes that Jesus would help the team win their first game and if they did he would honor him in Glee club. Kurt hurts his fathers feelings when he tells him he won't be at their traditional Friday night dinners that was started with his mother. Kurt picked a music event over dinner. Finn brings up tributing Jesus in Glee club and Kurt disagrees and puck sings "Only the good die young". Kurt's father has a heart attack and Kurt is heart broken and taking it really hard as anyone would. Finn prays to his grilled cheesus again to let him get "closer to Rachel". The glee club shows their sympathy to Kurt and Finn has a fit that he is the last to know about Kurt's father. Mercedes struggles to comfort Kurt with words so instead she sings "I look to you". Kurt's eyes water up but lets everyone know he doesn't believe in God. Everyone is upset by his decision and he tells them he doesn't want their prayers. Sue tries to band the Glee clubs lesson on religion. Finn thinks he gets his prayers answer when Rachel lets him touch her chest.

Sue goes to Kurt and tries to sympathize Kurt but really she just wants Kurt to make a statement that his is uncomfortable with the religion lesson. Sue lets Emma know why she doesn't want religion to be sung in glee because when she prayed for comfort with her sister's disabilities she felt mocked. Finn is at it again when he prays to be quarter back again when Puck walks in and says he went to church with his nanny to pray last night too when he catches Finn praying. Rachel sings "Papa can you hear me?" in the park with Finn along side her so she can be sure God hears her prayer. She later sings it in the hospital with Kurt's Father. When she sings this I notice her neckless and it says Finn. Kurt walks in after Rachel is done singing and he get's upset and asks everyone to leave. Sam gets injured during a game and Finn gets his quarter back title back. Kurt wants to express his feelings in a song when he tells a story about how his dad holding his hand tightly when they were at his mothers funeral, it's only right that he performs "I want to hold your hand". An Emotional performance stunned everyone in the class including myself. Mercedes invites Kurt to her church services that is dedicated to his father and persuades him to go by saying he can wear a fabulous hat.

Finn confesses about his grilled cheesus to Ms. Pillsbury and she tells him that his prayers weren't answered because of his grilled cheesus. Finn gets upset and sings "losing my religion" and questions God later. Mercedes dedicates a song "bridge over trouble waters" during her church services. While Sue is visiting her sister she asks her if she believes in God and she asked sue do you? Sue says no because she watched the world be cruel to her. Her sister told Sue that "God never makes mistakes and that she believes. Do you want me to pray for you sue?" Sue answers that would be nice and sheds a tear. Kurt talks to his dad about memories and apologizes to him for not letting his friends pray for him, he lets him know they he doesn't believe in got but he believes in him. Kurt's father tries to hold his hand and it's a great sign that he is going to be okay. The Glee club sings "one of us" and Sue watches in while they do and tells Will it's okay.

I have a few opinions on this episode because it's ratings were low. Once the word God or Jesus is said lots of people run away or instantly turns it off. I know not everyone believes in God or Jesus and that's perfectly fine everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs but they have no right bash the people that do believe. It is also unfair that we can't talk about our beliefs because the ones that don't believe want to throw a fit but it's okay for them to parade around saying they don't believe? no! So I was extreamly happy that Glee did this episode it shows all aspects of peoples beliefs you have some that believe and some that don't you have a few different religions shown. They had a great message and I give it 5 stars for it!

1. Rachel, Papa Can You Hear Me? Barbra Streisand
2. Finn, Losing My Religion R.E.M
3. Kurt, I Want to Hold Your Hand The Beatles
4. New Directions, One of Us Joan Osborne
5. Mercedes, I Look to You Whitney Houston
6. Noah, Only the Good Die Young, Billy Joel
7. Mercedes, Bridge Over Troubled Water Aretha Franklin
All get 5 Stars

Hope you found this review helpful and fun. Duets will be posted in the morning, Rocky horror glee show mid afternoon, and hopefully never been kissed before premier of the substitute. Which that review will be up by Sunday November 21st.

I've been gone too long.

Hello all my lovely bloggers who still check back every week. I see you on my stats hehe I miss you all so dearly it's unbelievable how long I stayed away. I have in all honesty been busy with work and family from out of town. I know what you all come back for every week too and thats my Glee recap/review and I have them all except last weeks. So i'm gonna write that and quickly proof read the others and post them within hours of tonight and tomorrow leading up to tomorrows new episode and that recap/review won't be up till the end of the week because well thats just how I roll hehe.

Your messages are so loving and dear to me, and some are well hate mail. Nothing too bad but just because I don't post every week doesn't give you the right to blow up my email with nasty emails telling I didn't write a blog.

In December I am hoping to bring back Silvia's advice. I'm getting a nice break from working and then in January it's back to school I go. So I hope to take advantage of that.

I love you all muchos and look for my glee reviews soon within a few hours.
