Random thoughts from a "Glee" star....

I really hate to say this, but I wasn't all that thrilled by last night's episode of "Glee." And as I reflected on why this may have been true, I realized that it's because I've never actually seen Rocky Horror Picture Show. I'm sure everyone out there who's seen the show loved the special Halloween ep FOX aired last night. But alas, I think that besides the phenomenal writing, incredible acting and inspiring messages, part of the draw of the show for me is singing along to the tunes.

I love that "Glee" does such a great job of mixing in old-school hits with current smashes....guaranteeing that I'll love most of the music they play on each ep. And yes, I am that kind of watcher. I totally sit there, singing along with every song I know, sometimes drowning out the actual singers on the show. To be honest, I don't know how Matt puts up with watching it with me sometimes...but that's his cross to bear, I suppose.

So, I definitely think that part of the reason I wasn't as drawn to this episode was because I simply couldn't sing along. For the first time ever in the show's history, I had never heard a single one of the songs the cast sang. Oddly, Matt wasn't a fan, either, and he, too, has never seen Rocky Horror. Coincidence? I think not. Could the real magic be in the music? What do you think?

For those of you out there who also found themselves without a tune to sing last night, here's a little consolation prize. I recently stumbled upon Dianna Agron's personal blog. A fan of the beautiful actress, but not knowing a whole lot about her, I spent some time browsing her posts (which mostly include art, videos and random thoughts). If you're as intrigued about her as I am, take a'll even get a chance to read her note responding to the recent GQ scandal. I promise, it won't disappoint.

And lastly, here's my favorite quote from last night:
Kurt: "So, what are you going to be for Halloween this year?"
Brittany: "I'm going as a peanut allergy."
