Happy Sunday, everyone!
Since I’ve been reliving Gilmore Girls on Netflix recently, I couldn’t help but be blown away at how good the early seasons were. I just love them–oozing with classic Stars Hollow antics and introductions to my favorite Gilmore guy, Jess Mariano. Goodness, I forgot how perfect Jess is! Bad guy vibes abound from his perfectly tousled cool-guy hair, but literature lovers (like me) can’t help but swoon when he can keep up with Rory’s knowledge of the literary canon. He writes in the margins, ladies. No wonder Rory can’t help but leave good-guy Dean in the dust. I never liked him anyway.
I also forgot about how incredibly idyllic everything about this show is. It’s so refreshing compared to the drama and action packed shows many of us young adults are obsessed with these days. I love unwinding after a hectic day with the fast-talking Gilmore’s and their devil-may-care attitudes about life. These ladies go with the flow, especially the young Rory. She is who she is, and won’t let the daily struggles of high school get in the way of that. Lorelei, on the other hand, has a tougher time with this concept: “As long as everything is exactly the way I want it , I’m totally flexible!”
You gotta love her.
Because of my recent rekindled relationship with the early 2000s Gilmore girls, I opted for my Gilmore Girls mug to drink the sacred nectar of Lorelei and Rory this morning. I got this for Christmas 2013, and I just love it so much. Colorful Gilmore-isms encircle the simple ceramic mug:
- “Oy with the poodles already!”
- “Hockey puck, rattlesnake, monkey, monkey, underpants?”
- “Reality has no place in our world!”
- “It’s us. We’re not here. We have a life. Get over it.”
- “You have exhausted all of your talking rights by being crazy”
- And the quote mentioned earlier in this charming little post.
I hope everyone has enjoyed their Sunday. I know I have: coffee and the Gilmore’s, what else could I ask for?
