Happy Holidays from GilmoreNews!

Here’s a snapshot that sums up all the best stuff about Gilmore Girls at Christmas.

Although… it was taken after Christmas, Lorelai doesn’t get her way and the girls don’t have money enough for retail therapy.

Lorelai: I melted three entire candy canes into this not-very-large cup of coffee, and still I can barely taste it… I swear I could get the same effect if I put Vaporub on my chest and drank coffee at the same time.

OK so maybe not the best Christmas ever but in the spirit of appreciating what we have, we have coffee, kick-ass Christmas sweaters and those beautiful baby blues. If I only had those things in my stocking, I’d be a happy camper.

Merry Christmas my turtle doves and sincere Best Wishes to you and yours for the Holiday season, for 2015 and for all that the New Year may bring.

Peace Out,
Rich

Rich

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    Phoning it in this week, I just got back about six hours of walking around the amazing Harry Potter Studio Tour!

    Rest in Peace Edward Herrmann. A GG reunion wouldn’t be the same.
