THE GILMORE GIRLS MENTALITY

  • talks about her Confessions

    Confession: I still want to cry when I remember that Gilmore Girls is over.

     

    Best show ever.  I own all 7 seasons.  I love every single character.  I want to live in Stars Hollow.  I want to be a cool mom like Lorelai.  Okay, I just want to be Lorelai period.

     

    One thing I especially loved-and knew was somewhat unrealistic-was the fact that those girls-especially Lorelai-were ALWAYS eating.  She NEVER exercised.  She ate whenever and whatever she wanted and I honestly don’t remember a time when what she was eating wasn’t completely and horribly bad for her body.  Yet she never had weight issues.  She looked great in her clothes.  She thought about and talked about food often, but didn’t gain weight.  It was the ultimate dream food life in my eyes.

    Here’s an excerpt of a conversation between Lorelai & her daughter Rory from one episode that illustrates what I’m talking about:

    {taken from Season 3: “A Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving”}
    L- Rory, what are we, if not world champion eaters?
    R- it’s too much food.
    L- It’s not too much food.  This is what we’ve been training for our whole lives.  This is our destiny.  This is our finest hour.
    R- Or final hour.
    L- No, no.  Get inspired & tomorrow I guarantee you, we will be standing on the Olympic platform receiving our gold medals for eating.  We are not Michelle Kwan-ing this.”

     

    See?!  They are foodaholics, like me! (:  Love this show, I tell you.  Watch it if you haven’t, the witty banter is a balm to my soul.  Okay, it makes me laugh every time, which is practically the same thing.

     

    The truth is, I’m not Lorelai {and neither is Lauren Graham in real life-despite what I tell my husband}, and I can’t get away with eating whatever I want and not exercising.  It’s okay though, I’ve dealt with that truth and am doing everything I can to reach my personal level of ultra-health.  It’s all good.

     

    Except that I do wish my life was set to music.  Just not the scary parts…

    I have less than 5 tv shows I love and watch religiously and Gilmore Girls is one of them. My mom and I are creepy-close like Lorelai and Rory, and I adore both women! I bought all 8 seasons and watched them through 8 times my last 2 years of college since I had no tv there. I just never get tired of them! Glad to see this love is shared!
