I always think that I want to date a Luke Danes. He’s so stable. However, when I really think about it, he’s also grumpy, moody, & slow to commit. Now, Lorelai is my hero, so I don’t think that she was at fault for their problems. I spend way too much time thinking about these kind of things, so here is what she might’ve done differently.
Luke needs time to process. Most of Luke & Lorelai’s problems arose because Lorelai needed an answer right then, & Luke needed time to think about it, such as when April showed up.
Luke also needs space. Although he did attend more town meetings & events when they got together, he still needed Luke time. He’s never going to be the center of attention party planner.
Honesty. It seems like whenever Christopher called, Lorelai wouldn’t mention it & it would turn into a big fight because Luke would assume that she wouldn’t hide it if it meant nothing.
So I guess I still want to date a Luke Danes, but maybe one with less issues that will still build me an ice skating rink.
I can only go so far in my quest to become a Gilmore Girl. I wish my town had a troubadour to sing songs as I walk across the city square, but we don’t. The logical solution is to become the town troubadour.
I own a guitar. It’s blue. I know three chords. I can totally pull off the mysterious thing. I can’t sing. At all. I also like to write in short sentences. For awhile I toyed around with idea of being a bad town troubadour, like in the Season 6 finale. That I could totally do. I just don’t want to end up the subject of a town meeting, so this is one experiment I’ll have to pass on.
I’m still having Gilmore Girls withdrawals, so I’ve been trying to find a replacement show. It’s like when a goldfish dies & after a few days/weeks/months, you are ready to go to the pet store. I’ll always be loyal to the Gilmores, but I just wanted something to fill the gapping void in my life since the show ended. I decided to try some shows that have already finished their run. This way I know they are going to end, & when they are going to end, so I won’t be too traumatized. So far I’ve tried:
Wonderfalls. Only four episodes aired, but the DVDs have 13 episodes. It’s a funny show that pretty much sums up generation y, but I couldn’t get too attached with just 13 shows.
Alias. So many people have recommended this show to me, because Sidney kicks people & I love that. However, I just got so bored & only made it through half of the first season.
Whenever I tell people that I love Gilmore Girls, they seem to recommend Felicity. Great, four whole seasons. Again, this show just didn’t seem to move. Like Alias I just couldn’t get involved. If I hadn’t watched Gilmore Girls, I might’ve liked it, but Amy Sherman Palladino spoiled me with interesting characters & conversations.
If I keep this up, pretty soon I’ll be watching One Tree Hill. There doesn’t seem to be anything else out there that is of the Gilmore caliber.
