      I would like to point out to all my fellow Gleeks that Sunshine is NOT a guest... she is an official character although she's been shoved off like last week's leftovers.... that is my top hate to the show but other than that I am so very happy that Kurt came back but beware of Sue...

      Yes, I love Glee so much but I kind of think that Kurofsky and Santana do make a very weird couple even though they are each others' beards.

      I am, but I don't like the relationships so much this season. Finn and Quinn are so last season. :D
