Morning everyone. My whole family has been sick since Wednesday last week. It started with me and then spread. So my time has been consumed with lying on the lounge watching the Australian Open Tennis (tennis, cricket and Christmas all remind me of summer funny because it all occurs in summer down here!) and trying to amuse my daughter with as little input from me as possible. Apparently giving her a few simple plastic tools from the kitchen (bowl, spoon, whisk, cup) and her play food keeps her occupied for ages. She proceeded to feed all her toys with “tea” and give everyone a bib, including me!
So, whilst I was lying on the lounge watching the tennis and being fed by my daughter, I managed to finish 2 books and start another one. Plus I thought a lot. About what you might ask? About Gilmore Girls! Yes, that’s right. All I have wanted to do is sit down and watch Lorelai and Rory crack funnies. If you haven’t watched Gilmore Girls before you are missing out on some seriously witty stuff. I own all 7 seasons on DVD (as does Helen) and we both aim to watch the whole series over the course of a year (not at the same time or rate by the way). Since we are moving soon just about all of my DVD collection in packed up and that includes most of Gilmore Girls. So whilst I’m sick, I guess I just want to vege in front of the TV and “hang out” with the Gilmore Girls. Since I can’t really watch the show right now, I thought I’d dig up some classic quotes. Enjoy!
Lorelai: It’s from my mother.
Rory: What is it?
Lorelai: It’s heavy. It must be her hopes and dreams for me.
Rory: I thought she discarded those years ago.
Lorelai: My mother – she was here. I can feel it.
Rory: Grandma hasn’t been here.
Lorelai: Smell that?
Rory: Smell what?
Lorelai: The room – it smells like guilt and Chanel No. 5
Richard: Lorelai, this is just beautiful. It’s like something out of Architectural Digest. You should be very proud.
Lorelai: Thanks Dad.
Emily: Your dress needs pressing.
Lorelai: Thanks Mom.
Rory: Before I knew it, Grandma was telling me how important it is for a person to be properly presented to society.
Lorelai: Ugh.
Rory: And how every young girl dreams of this day.
Lorelai: Agh.
Rory: And how there are flowers.
Lorelai: Oh Lord.
Rory: And music.
Lorelai: Please.
Rory: And cake.
Lorelai: Oh yeah, the cake’s actually good.

Finally before you go, just a quick clip from what is arguably the funniest scene from Gilmore Girls:
