This blog entry is pretty much for Gleeks only as I will be discussing my conspiracy theory regarding the season finale.

So, Vocal Adrenaline came in 1st, with Oral Intensity behind in 2nd and New Directions in 3rd.

BUT...based on what happened in the judges' room, this is the most sensical representation of the scores:

Sue Olivia Josh other guy Total
Vocal Adrenaline 3 2 2 1 8
Oral Intensity 2 1 3 2 8
New Directions 1 3 1 3 8

The winning team should have the lowest score.

We know how Sue and Olivia Newton-John voted.
It's safe to say Josh Groban voted New Directions first and that the other guy voted Vocal Adrenaline first because of their expressed like for the respective teams.
You can assume how the two men voted for their second and third teams because if you did any other combination, New Directions would be at least second. And it's unlikely Josh Groban changed his mind about New Directions from Olivia's bitching since he didn't seem to like Olivia very much.

Therefore, this should have been a three-way tie!

My theory: there is another concurrent scoring that goes with the ranking, like how competitive speech has speaker points, that determined 1st, 2nd and 3rd. If that's the case, they should have expressed it so nerds like me who build spreadsheets to question television wouldn't have to disprove the plot. This is Glee, not Lost!

Anyway, here are some of my other comments on the Glee finale, in case anyone cares:
• Vocal Adrenaline is good. But by good, I mean Jonathan Groff is amazing and the rest of the team serves as moving props for his one-man show.
• I like New Directions' costumes more than Vocal Adrenaline's. Vocal Adrenaline's costumes were like Charlotte Russe prom so I don't get why Olivia would say that New Directions' costumes were poor-looking.
• I loved New Directions' use of Bumpits!
• I wish they went into the emotion behind Quinn's decision to give up the baby more AND went into why she would randomly give her baby to Shelby.
• Quinn gives birth on a Saturday. Back in school on Monday to sing for Mr. Schuester. Impressive.
• No closure for Jesse and Rachel?
• Kind of a lazy episode. They should have made it a two-hour finale to really flush out the stories as they deserved.

Wow. I'm a huge nerd. Is this blog entry more embarrassing than the fact that I spent $9.99 on Street Fighter IV for iPhone?

After talking with my colleagues, maybe you two should think about pursuing a Mrs degree.

The scary part is that we all turn into our parents in the end...

Joining the circus!

Today, Esther and I went to our first flying trapeze class. We have decided that the hustle and bustle of advertising is not for us; we are destined for the circus life.

Here's a taste of what you an expect when I make my Cirque du Soleil debut:

One of our instructors looked JUST like Edward Cullen (as played by Robert Pattinson in the popular Twilight movie franchise). I told him so and, just when things were going to get uncomfortable, I assured him that I'm on Team Jacob so he didn't think I was swooning over him. I am not awkward at all!
