Who: Burt and Genny
What: IM conversation, leading to Superbowl party planning
When: Slightly backdated to Sunday, Jan 30th
BurtHummel (12:52:18 PM): Hi, Genny! I'm glad I spotted you online. I have a question for you.
TrumpetGirlGen (12:57:23 PM):Hey Mr. Hummel, what's up?
BurtHummel (12:58:29 PM):Remember we talked about me and Carole, and maybe some other people, getting together with your folks? To welcome them to Lima properly?
TrumpetGirlGen (12:59:11 PM):Yeah, I do.
BurtHummel (12:59:59 PM):Are they more "superbowl party" people or "Anti-Superbowl spa day people?"
TrumpetGirlGen (1:02:41 PM):Haha, they're a little bit of both. They like football, but they don't follow it every Sunday. They watch the Superbowl, but they're not really invested in who wins.
BurtHummel (1:06:49 PM):I'm not invested this year either. I mean, Steelers/Parkers... it should be a good game, but neither one is "my" team, yanno? Anyway, we're having a Superbowl party at Casa Hummel. Do you think they'd like to come? We have a big screen TV. (Really big) And we're gonna invite the Glee kids and the band so you should know some peope there. We'll set up the video games in another room for you guys, too.
TrumpetGirlGen (1:10:35 PM):I'll need to double check with them, but I'm pretty positvie they're gonna say yes. Do you want us to bring anything to eat or drink? Or like, to come over early and get anything ready?
BurtHummel (1:12:37 PM):Um... I think we're gonna start early anyway, like a tailgate party in the living room. Come over as early as you want (say, after noonish)? And food would be great. We're makin stuff, but we're gonna do kind of a potluck. We're going to be dry this year, because of so many kids, though.
TrumpetGirlGen (1:14:25 PM):Okay. Oh, and don't worry about the being dry thing. The moms only drink on nights that they don't have to work the next day...so pretty much only on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
BurtHummel (1:16:06 PM)::-) I like a six-pack with a game but I can't (yet) unless it's light beer... imagine a very disgusted face here. And there's no sense tempting fate with a pack of teenagers. Even if their parents are in the next room.
BurtHummel (1:28:47 PM):SO, I'll be doing invitations. (Carole says I have to this year, not just phone the guys and tell 'em to drop in)
BurtHummel (1:30:46 PM):So, how is school going anyway?
TrumpetGirlGen (1:32:37 PM):Haha, why invitations? It's a football game! That seems like a lot of extra work (this is me offering to help out, by the way. I like themed parties. I'll bet I could find football shaped invitations!)
TrumpetGirlGen (1:33:01 PM):And school's...going, I guess. I still haven't really talked to anyone aside from Maddie and Sam...
BurtHummel (1:35:09 PM):::laughs:: I don't know. Usually the guys at work just start showing up around noon and we... well. we really just opened chips and dip and beers while Kurt rolled his eyes and hid in the basement and grumbled about what we were eating. But this year, it's a bigger thing.
BurtHummel (1:35:28 PM):Sam and Maddie are good people to start with, though.
BurtHummel (1:36:59 PM):Maybe I'll just put it on my journal... and email Mr. Schue and Ms Pillsbury and the other teacher... Ms. Corcoran? and that will do it?
TrumpetGirlGen (1:41:57 PM):Haha, that'd work in my opinion. I'd say it counts as an e-invitation!
BurtHummel (1:42:59 PM):right! It's the Superbowl, which is important, but not wedding important, right?
TrumpetGirlGen (1:47:02 PM):Exactly! It's meant to be informal.
BurtHummel (1:50:46 PM):right. It's just fun, nothing to stress about.
TrumpetGirlGen (1:51:22 PM):exactly. I'm pretty sure any event where the main food is chicken wings is meant to be low-stress.
BurtHummel (1:52:31 PM):yeah, how formal can you be with BBQ sauce on your fingers. (and chin.) I'm not a real formal kinda guy, anyway, I'm sure you guessed.
TrumpetGirlGen (1:56:20 PM):haha, I kind of had an inkling...
BurtHummel (1:56:35 PM)::-)
TrumpetGirlGen (2:06:38 PM):I'm glad you're not super serious, though. It makes you easy to talk to. Most adults are all stuffy and boring.
BurtHummel (2:07:20 PM):I think in real life I probably seem real serious to a lot of people.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:07:55 PM):What, like, when you're at work? I mean, that'd make sense. It's your job. That has to be serious.
BurtHummel (2:08:56 PM):yeah.. and a lot of the stuff that went down recently... has been real serious, too.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:31:17 PM):Which, I meant to ask you (figured it'd be safer than asking at school)...There's not a gay-straight alliance at McKinley, is there?
BurtHummel (2:33:38 PM):Not yet. As far as we know, Kurt was the only gay kid there... which only means that any others are afraid to come out. Rachel might know more. And some of us are trying to figure out how to do a parent version, I think. Me, and Carole, and the Berrys and some others.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:34:46 PM):Like PFLAG! That'd be awesome! I still need to meet Rachel. Maybe she and I could get a GSA started at school...
BurtHummel (2:37:14 PM):Yeah, like that. I think... it might not help Kurt, he's at another school now, but there must be some kids who were scared because of what they saw him going through? And they need help. NEed to be safe. then maybe ... Lima will be better for all of us.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:40:56 PM):I mean, I know McKinley isn't a big school, but there's got to be more than one gay kid in the whole place. Even if there isn't, we can set it up to help out for whoever comes there next.
BurtHummel (2:41:42 PM):right.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:43:02 PM)::-)
BurtHummel (2:43:30 PM):So, we will see you Sunday, then! Live, and in person!
TrumpetGirlGen (2:45:15 PM):Yes sir! And I'm warning you now, my mom cooks for an army, so you're gonna have leftovers of whatever we bring over (it'll be healthy, so you don't have to worry about not being able to eat it).
BurtHummel (2:45:45 PM)::-) We might have an army. At least a bunch of teen boys.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:46:51 PM):True...You might not get any leftovers then.
BurtHummel (2:47:17 PM):Which would also be fine
TrumpetGirlGen (2:47:41 PM):You sure? I can tell mom to make more than normal.
BurtHummel (2:48:07 PM):if nrma; feeds an army, we should be fine, really.
TrumpetGirlGen (2:49:19 PM):Okay. Just know the offer for massive amounts of food is on the table (haha...table...lots of food...wow, I'm a dork).
BurtHummel (2:49:29 PM):funny!
BurtHummel (2:49:50 PM):(I like funny, and dorks)
TrumpetGirlGen (3:39:14 PM):I wish I could be funny all the time. It only happens once in a while.
BurtHummel (3:39:42 PM):That's ok. Worth the wait.
TrumpetGirlGen (3:51:27 PM):My grandma's the funny one in our family. One time, when mom was a kid, she got so mad because Grandma wouldn't let her dye her hair, so Grandma (I'm still not really sure how) managed to convince her she was going bald and wouldn't have hair to dye anyways.
BurtHummel (3:52:25 PM):wow....
TrumpetGirlGen (3:52:46 PM):To be fair, Mom's kind of gullible.
TrumpetGirlGen (3:52:53 PM):(she's a blonde.)
BurtHummel (3:53:07 PM):hmmm... I'll remember that. ;-)
TrumpetGirlGen (3:53:21 PM)::-D If she asks, I told you nothing.
BurtHummel (3:54:56 PM):lol
