Sunday Confessions: GILMORE! GILMORE! GILMORE! edition (No spoilers I promise!)
Saturday, 26 November 2016
I confess: My brain is still a muddled pool of simultaneously happy and frustrated confusion processing the Gilmore Girls Revival. I think I need to watch it all over again! I won't write about it yet, maybe in a week, when I have digested it... My favourite fashion things, for anyone interested, were Rory's gingham chunky heel Mary Janes in the NYC bit (SO practical for running around NY am I right? So cute though!), Lorelei's pink coat/ fluffy bobble hat combo (pictured above), Emily wearing jeans because that's awesome, and....Lorelei's dress she wore at the end (without giving too much away!).
I confess: Those last four words though, are they just messing with us?! Yeah I can't think about anything else right now.
I confess: I feel kinda Christmassy now and want to deck them halls, but that entails going up into the attic and climbing this rickety ladder....(I would love a real tree but no room for one sadly).
I confess: (still on a Gilmore related note) I was all excited because I had the house to myself for the evening to binge watch the show in solitary bliss - side note, I feel I have somehow hid the full extent of my Gilmore Girls obsession on the blog...like I know I've mentioned some of my favourite episodes before, but I have in truth seen every episode a few times over now (I think? I watched it in repeats, it's possible I may have missed one! agh.). There was a brief moment in time where after I saw the final episode, I thought "Ah well, that's it done." Baaahahaha. "It's not a show, it's a religion" as Rory once said (yeah, we need to talk about Revival Rory, another day. Guuuurl. :-/).
I might actually, dare I say it, dive back in via Netflix...ahhh somebody save me from the Bedford Falls on mild psychadelics charm of Stars Hollow and 40s film style fast banter vortex!
ANYWAY, like many a diehard fan I had planned to buy all of the Gilmore Girls related junk food to eat while watching - pizza, ice cream, Pop Tarts (I was sure I'd seen Pop Tarts somewhere but then couldn't find them/be bothered hunting them down in every grocery store in town), dougnuts, red vines: all that Lorelei and Rory junk food jazz.
But when I went to the supermarket, I just wasn't feeling in the mood, at all. SO annoying! I mean, why is it when you give yourself license to pig out, it's less fun? Just me? I'm feeling like I want to be better at eating less junk, almost sort of against my will....I'm just less "into food" right now. I'm eating, obviously, but I don't know, it's hard to describe. Of course saying that now I want a Pop Tart after watching the damn show, and I don't even like Pop Tarts that much! Did anyone else get swept up in the revival madness this weekend? What did you think? I have so many thoughts!
