On Saturday I traveled to downtown Toronto to see Glee Live in Concert with my sister N and niece M. The boys and DH came with me for the ride, and they went to take in Casa Loma while we girls did our thing.
It was all very exciting, and our seats were amazing! We had floor seats, twenty rows back from the main stage. There was another smaller stage set up in the middle of the floor area that we were even closer to. I took this picture of Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Rachel (Lea Michele)with N's camera, since I stupidly thought we couldn't bring cameras and so didn't bring mine. They were on the smaller stage at this point.
I felt a little like a teenager again, screaming and applauding, jumping up and down and dancing. It's easy to get caught up in the enthusiasm and excitement. I bought the three of us matching red Glee shirts from Walmart, but miss M wouldn't wear hers, as it wasn't pink or sparkly at all. Hey, that's what's important when you're a four year old girl! I probably won't be wearing the shirt again, other than for cleaning or something, because even though in the moment it felt "cool", I probably look like a real dork as a 37 year old mom sporting a teenager's apparel.
So I've been following the cast of Glee on Twitter, which I don't normally bother with (I'm listed as mom2others, if you care, which I don't really). I wanted to see what they would say about Toronto and such. I came across a link to a blog that Dianna Agron writes (she plays Quinn). It is about tolerance, and it is so well written. I don't know much about the personal lives of any of these stars, but she must be well educated, and very smart. If you have a chance, you should read it, here.
