gleek(8)

blending noun
An overzealous fan of the new musical television show Glee, or more loosely used as a devout follower of musicals like the show Glee. It combines the show Glee and the word geek, referring to one who is full of knowledge; hence, a gleek is one who knows much about the show Glee. The term began with the birth of the show, which has since become very widely watched and well known. It has even been used in commercials advertising the show, and merchandise sold proclaiming one as a “gleek”.
 
I’m sorry for being such a gleek, but your recital is on at the same time as the show!
