Goodbye Stars Hollow.

Because it’s stupid to be sad about a TV show ending, I’m not going to post a big fat blog about Gilmore Girls ending tonight. Instead, I’ll quote an article I wrote about 18 months ago that talks about GG. My own homage, if you will.

Every Tuesday night a group of us get together around 7:30pm. We mingle, we talk, we laugh, and we usually eat something listed on the top triangle of the food pyramid that is delicious and covered in chocolate. We have coffee, talk about our days, the highs and the lows. We are a collection of girlfriends who love being together. As soon as a clock, any clock, hits 7:55pm, we head up the carpeted stairs to the playroom where we pile up onto futons, couches, and big fluffy pillows on the floor. And we watch Gilmore Girls. Phones are silenced. Lights are off. No husband, son, friend, or foe is more important than Lorelai, Luke, and Rory. We sing the theme song with reckless abandon- “If you’re out on the road, feeling lonely and so cold…” But then, we are as silent as church mice while our “friends” in Stars Hollow, Connecticut live their lives for our viewing pleasure.

It’s more than just watching a show. It’s who I watch it with and how I love them. I will miss that more than I miss Lorelia, Sookie, Rory, and Luke.

For you girls, I present the following picture. Kurt deserves nothing less.If you’re out on the road, feeling lonely and so cold, all you have to do
is call my name and I’ll be there on the next train.
Where you lead, I will follow. Any-any where, that you tell me to.
If you need, you need me to be with you, I will follow- OH- where you lead.

    As much as I’m missing Stars Hollow, I’m looking forward to meeting the Rory to your Lorelei.

    Completely off topic — AOL radio has a free preview of the new Rufus Wainwright CD available. Go to

    Caroline, I want to run the Dragonfly Inn. Badly.

    Aaron, I was pleased. It felt complete, but left open enough to imagine more of the story. I hope Camille enjoyed it as well. Sad to see the Gilmores go.

    Bill, I’m so on it.
