[Timeline: Sometime after Disney week, at least a few weeks before Regionals.]

Kurt had a plan. One he'd been working on for a few weeks, actually, though he hadn't really told anyone about it. It was a pretty massive project and it would take a lot of finangling on his part, but if it worked...it would be amazing. If it didn't, well...nothing ventured, nothing gained. There were so many things that were going to have to go just right if he was to pull off what he was hoping to. And a lot of people that would have to cooperate. He was fairly certain he could count on the New Directions. And Blaine. He just...wasn't sure if he could count on any of the Warblers and they were rather crucial to his plan as well. His best chance, he figured, would actually be to get Blaine to ask them--they'd be far less likely to turn Blaine down. It was quite possible that he should start with that, but really his plan was going to hinge an awful lot on the cooperation of one person. Someone he hadn't really even talked to before.

He had little trouble finding her phone number in the phone book; how many Zizes could there possibly be?

He dialed the number and waited for someone to pick up.

"Hello, may I please speak with Lauren Zizes?" he asked when someone answered after a few rings.

Lauren was in the middle of watching the tape of the Glee club's performance of "Toxic" Jacob Ben-Israel had procured for her (because she really did want to have Mr. Schue's babies, that Suzy Pepper girl was really onto something...) when the phone in the hallway rang. She paused the video, only stopping to shriek out in ecstasy over Mr. Schue's severe O-face she'd paused it on, befire walking into the hall and picking it up. "Hello?"

"This is Kurt Hummel," he replied, suddenly feeling quite awkward. Maybe he should have just asked Artie. Except Artie was only good with the video. Lauren was the one to see about the audio, plus she'd likely be just as good if not better than Artie with the video, from what he'd heard, anyway. "I know you don't really know me, but I've got this...project I'm working on. You're the best A/V specialist at McKinley," he flattered her a little bit. "I could really use your help, if you'd be willing?" From what Rachel had said at Sectinoals, he knew that in all likelihood he'd need to grease the wheels a little bit, but figured he'd let her open the negotiations.

Lauren smirked at Kurt's obvious attempt to win her over with the A/V comment. "What's in it for me?"

That was not unexpected. He wasn't sure though what she'd want. He knew she had a fondness for sweets, but he certainly didn't want to offend her by assuming that's what she'd want. He would love to give her a makeover, but wasn't sure that suggestion would go over very well, either. Perhaps he could work that in later. "I am prepared to make it worth your while," he assured. "What I have in mind may take quite a bit of time. It will involve some videotaping and editing, and a lot more audio recording and mixing," he informed her. "I would need you to come to Dalton Academy at least one time, possibly more," he continued. "As well as at least an afternoon or two filming at either McKinley, or possibly in my home. So let's talk price. I am open to negotiations, though will mention that I do have a particularly great talent for spotting fashion trends and creating spectacular looks, and a fairly decent social network for acquiring other items or services. What will it take to make this happen?" he queried.

Lauren pondered Kurt's offers. She knew the boy was particularly good with fashion. "You're good with fashion right? I mean, not that Puckerman cared what I was wearing, I mean, it's more about what's under all that for him... but still, I'm not sure he was totally diggin' my look. And Iif I ever wanna rock his world again..."

Kurt practically squeed as she mentioned fashion. "I can totally help you with fashion," he agreed happily. "Though I do think you could do so much better than such a..." he tried to find a reasonably non-disparaging term, "promiscuous boy like Puckerman, I can understand the asthetic appeal," he added. "For each hour you help me, I will trade an hour's worth of fashion tips, shopping for your perfect look, and some spa pampering," he bargained. "Do we have a deal?"

"You have got yourself a deal!" he agreed. If this went well, he'd even throw in a few bonus hours (not that he needed an excuse to shop...) "I need to make a few arrangements on my end, but assuming all goes well, would you be able to come to Dalton tomorrow afternoon?"

"If you give me your cell number I'll send you directions," Kurt offered, giving her his number as well. "And I'll call you tomorrow to let you know for sure that we're on. Thank you so much for doing this!"

Lauren gave Kurt her number, and wrote his down as he gave it to her. "No problem, I guess."

Although he would have preferred a little more enthusiasm he hadn't really seen Lauren ever act excited about much of anything (though he had *heard* her during the "Toxic" performance...) so he didn't take it too personally. "Perfect. I will see you tomorrow. Oh, and it's possible that you'll be hearing from Brittany about riding up here together. If she figures out who you are. If she doesn't contact you, maybe you could go up and ask her if she needs a ride tomorrow. Mm'kay? Bye!" He hung up quickly so that she couldn't protest. He smiled smuggly to himself, happy that his plan was finally getting started. Now he just needed to get Blaine to help convince the Warblers to do their part...

Lauren was deleting history from her cell phone when she stumbled upon Kurt's number. She remembered he'd given it to her when he asked for her to help with his project. Speaking of that project, hadn't he told her he'd call her back? She hadn't heard from him since the initial phone call. She decided she had better call him back to make sure she was still needed.

{Timeline...daytime before Scene @ Breadstix }

Kurt checked his hair in the rearview mirror one more time before climbing out of the Navigator and heading up to the front door at the address Lauren had given him. He really didn't know Lauren all that well yet, but nothing forged friendships faster than a morning at the spa followed by some intense shopping. And while he was helping Lauren find her inner fashionista, Blaine would be joining them and help Kurt find something more appropriate to wear to the game. Though he wouldn't ever admit it to anyone, he really couldn't wait to have his boyfriend picking something out for him to wear. Though he would have to totally re-think things if Blaine picked out anything involving stirrup pants. But surely, Blaine had better sense than that!

Kurt stood on the door step, squared his shoulders, jutted his chin up proudly, and knocked on the Zizes family's door.

Lauren glanced up slightly when she heard the knock on the door and left her room, standing at the top of the stairs while her mother answered the door. When she saw that it was Kurt, she started down the stairs to greet him.

"Hey, Kurt."

"Hello, Lauren," he greeted, eyeing her current outfit appraisingly. Not completely hopeless, he silently evaluated, but they had some work to do on her style. Noah Puckerman wouldn't know what hit him once they were done. Though he still thought that she could do so much better than Puck...but he *had* come a long way since joining Glee. He wasn't a complete Neanderthal anymore.

"Are you ready?" he asked, eager to get started on the full morning he had planned for them. He hadn't had a good excuse for shopping since starting at Dalton. And he'd always loved orchestrating a good makeover.

Lauren listened as Kurt asked if she was ready. "Absolutely," she smiled, linking her arm playfully with Kurt's. "Puckerman's never gonna know what hit him."

Kurt's smile widened. "That's the plan. You can't have a successful day of shopping until you're in the right frame of mind, so I've taken the liberty of scheduling us an appointment at Le Balise for facials and a mani-pedi." Before she could protest he held up a hand, "On me. It'll get us relaxed and clear our heads." He always found it much harder to be overly critical of himself after a spa appointment.

"I hear you," Kurt bemoaned, sympathizing. "I haven't taken a day like this since...well, in a long time. I can't tell you how much I've been looking forward to this!!" He escorted her to the car and opened her door for her.
