Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 08.12.17

Today's quote comes from The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. Listen, while all you kids were reading Harry Potter, I was reading Percy Jackson. Even as a youngster, I was a little hipster shit. Couldn't be bothered with the mainstream, I had to read the slightly obscure, less popular series. People don't really change all that much.

Guys, my internship is almost over. Can you believe it? Just today and tomorrow and then it's back to our regular scheduled programming. So, not much will change except the words I write will be a little more relevant to the actual day. Actually, no. That seems like such a bold promise and I really like when your expectations are low.

Right now, I'm watching Glee because it's one A.M. and sometimes I just get sucked back into this nonsense. Since I am the supreme dictator of this blog I'm going to talk about my favorite Glee characters:

  1. Quinn Fabray - No one should be shocked that my girl Quinn is at the top of the list. She is the love of my life and has done absolutely nothing wrong in her entire life and anyone who says otherwise can get out of my sight.
  2. Marley Rose - What did Melissa Benoist do to the costume designer? Something bad must've happened because otherwise, I can't fathom why anyone would put her in such tragic newsboy hats for two seasons. Exhibit A. Although, whoever was in charge of her hair for the Grease episode can have my first born.
  3. Rachel Berry - Light of my life. Nothing more needs to be said.
  4. Santana Lopez - This is the single greatest scene in all of television history.
  5. Emma Pillsbury - Girl, I am so sorry you got saddled with Mr. Schue. You didn't deserve that, sweetie.
  6. Unique Adams - The Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend/Material Girl mashup saves my life on a daily basis.
  7. Sam Evans - Listen. I love my lil dude bro. My lil stripper. My lil George W. Bush impersonator. My lil macaroni artist. I just love him.

Honorable Mentions go to: Mercedes Jones, Burt Hummel, and Jake Puckerman. Y'all deserved more storylines.

But listen. It's gonna be the year 2045 and the Glee version of Don't Stop Believin' is going to start playing out of whatever musical device we have in the future and I will cry. Them's just the cold, hard facts.
