Born this Way.

This week’s Glee was “Born this Way.” In the 90 minute episode, the Gleeks were having some self-confidence issues, so their assignment was to sing Lady GaGa’s “Born this Way” and think about just what label they were worried about. So people, what would your shirt say? What is it about you that you’re insecure

Sony’s PlayStation Network has been down for days now. Days and days with Sony essentially saying that they were looking into the problem and it’d be up soon.

The Book Fair.

For the last week and a half, we saw signs up at the preschool that they’d be having a book fair this week. The boys loved the signs. On it was Olivia (they love the show on Nick Jr), Clifford the Big Red Dog and a few other children’s book characters. The Little Kidlet laughs
