I woke up this morning with the strange sensation flowing through my body telling me I needed to sing and dance...
It all came from the epic dream I had about Glee...
It was another competition like at sectionals but in a smaller theatre and just the teams competing- no audience. We were getting ready to sing Gold Digger (my part was with Mercedes of course) and when the music started playing it was the wrong remix of the track and another school's glee club started doing a lame-ass dance and harmonies to recorded vocals- we (I) flipped and was in the middle of starting a sing-off (more like my own mini riot) when here comes Mr. Schuester- grabbing my arm to call me down... I resist and he pulls back and where do we end up? kissing!!!
I brake it off quickly and walk away because I have my beloved Glee club to think about and even in my dreams Mr. Schu belongs Ms. Pillsbury..
even if I have to rip away my luscious lips and walk away to remind him of that..
Then I woke up..and was like "woah...I'm obsessed"...
but I feel like I have a right to fall in love with Glee as much as I have...
I am a shower singer like no other, opera arias, Queen, Wicked, Biggie Smalls...I conquer it all behind that vinyl curtail and with a bar of soap as a microphone. In my sophomore year I went from shower singing to real onstage singing when I was cast as Mae "momma" Petterson in Bye, Bye, Birdie...I had one song, all by myself, and it started out with me laying down across three silver trashcans...but that's another story..
from there I was hooked, theatre geek to the max with parts in Oklahoma, Cinderella, as a mime, old lady, and crazy Mexican woman down the street
The only photo I could find - me playing the part of Nurse in Pirates of Penzance
"when Frederick was a little lad- he was so brave and daring..."
So yes- I'm allowed to be obsessed, the singing dancing, jazz hands? been there done that. The feeling of being an underdog, awkward, geeky, and un-accepted? yeah done that too..
Now after divulging that bit of nerdy glee obsessiveness we're all still friends right??
yeah okay figured... I'm off to go set up a microphone and tape recorder in my bathroom to record the glory that is my shower singing- will I become an overnight sensation and travel the world and get my guest spot on Glee as the girl who steals the glory from Rachel??
I hope soo
but until all that happens I'll be butchering this little number with my rubber duckie...
