Hour 13

Trish again!

I had to stop watching Gilmore Girls because I was OBSESSED (and my favorite character left!), but I love this one scene where Rory and Lorelei are arguing over how many books she should take to school, and I stumbled on this:

Now I must watch more Gilmore Girls! You should be grateful Shesten’s going to be taking over, otherwise I’d find clips and make you watch them with me all night! Mwahahaha!!

  1. I never really watched Gilmore Girls but I was always fascinated by how many books Rory read, and I loved that they made a book nerd a main character!

  2. That;s too funny…yeah my friend always laughed at me..she says I inhale when I walk in a book store like most people do at a bakery! Maybe that’s why I am a librarian…

  3. I love GG to this day and still watch it!! Who was your favorite character?

    I was always partial to Babette. I loved how she had her little quirks to go along with a heart of gold. 🙂

  4. My Yahoo email isn’t working for some reason – “Unusual Internet Activity” – but I wanted to let you know that Cass from Bonjour, Cass won the Pet Pics challenge. I will email her as soon as my service comes back.

  5. Erin makes the best cheers, this is another great one!

    I love Gilmore Girls. Which was your favourite character? Can’t help but be curious.

  6. Congratulations, Erin! That’s an awesome cheer!

    I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan, I love that show and watch it any chance I get. Love the clip!

  7. Oh how I miss my Gilmore Girls! I think everyone doing this Read-a-thon could relate to Rory. More Gilmore goodness please!

    My most recent flight out of state, I packed my carry-on with 12 books for a 10 day trip. They came in handy with the 8 hour delay 🙂 although one of my traveling companions insisted on teasing me.

  8. Thanks for the Gilmore Girls fix! I need to watch it all again. So who was your favourite character that left?
    Would it be embarrassing if I admitted that we have a son called Jess? Not specifically named after GG Jess, but that was where we first heard the name for a boy. 😀

  9. I love Gilmore Girls! Have seen every episode way too many times, but that show never gets old. This is one of my favorite scenes, too 🙂

  10. Gilmore girls was my favorite show. I was so upset that it was over, so I convinced my friend to buy the complete season just so I could borrow it and watch all over again. I even got my boyfriend hooked, which is a difficult feat considering its a girl show!

  11. I LOVE that video! I just had a post last month or so about bookish characters in movies/tv and included that clip! It’s my favorite show!

  12. I love it! I was/am still obsessed with Gilmore Girls, and I so happened to reference that particular Gilmore Girls scene recently (like two days ago). You just made my night! 🙂

  13. I LOVE the GG!! I am always sad to see the last episode. In fact, when I was in labor with my first daughter (22 hours of labor) I had a 12 hour GG marathon before I left for the hospital. 🙂 They will always be so fond to me. I have most of the seasons on DVD and watch the reruns on ABC Family. 🙂
