Life according to Gilmore Girls

I have a confession to make--I get emotionally invested in television series. Just invite me to watch an episode of Parenthood with you and you'll soon find out by the number of used tissues just how much fictional characters can mean to me. I have also been known to hiccup for an hour after watching an especially funny episode of New Girl. 

By far my favorite series of all time though is Gilmore Girls--I just haven't found another TV series good enough to replace it. For those of you who have lived under a rock for a dozen years don't know, Gilmore Girls is the story of Lorelai and Rory, a single mom and her daughter as they navigate life, family drama, eccentric neighbors, and of course boys. But it's a lot more than that. It makes you cry, it makes you laugh, and best of all it gives you a huge arsenal of amazing one-liners. So today, in honor of my recent binge watching of the first four seasons, I present to you "Life According to the Gilmore Girls".


1) People are particularly stupid today.


You rock, Michel! I love him...his attitude, his accent, the way he hates humanity in general--pretty much a man after my own heart. And definitely how every person working in retail feels at least once a day.

2) We're the crazy pine-scented ladies aka best friends.


Everybody needs that best friend they can be crazy pine-scented ladies with. If you don't have one of those type of friends, get one...now...you'll need her one day when you're crazy in a nursing room.

3) Math is a horrible torture device.


Doing math makes my head hurt too, Sookie St James. Algebra, geometry, anything that involves 2+2 not equaling 4 hands down is something I just don't want to deal with during my lifetime. 

4) The world should not start before 11AM or noon, whichever comes first.


My husband wakes up at 5 in the morning, meaning I wake up at this ungodly hour. This also means that I have to cook him breakfast before eleven--all are not within my expertise level before 11. Every day I wear Rory's face.

5) Nobody gets too old for their mom....like ever.


There are definitely days where I'd love to sit in a corner and yell this at the top of my lungs. A girl can never get too old for their momma and ain't nobody needing to be ashamed of it. 

What are some bits of wisdom you've learned from your favorite TV series?
