Gilmore Girls & Coffee

In my family, people tend to pair off and have certain shows or movies that are special to a particular relationship. My dad and I had The West Wing, and then we had 24. My sister and I bonded over Charmed. And after I left for college, my mom and sister fell in love with Gilmore Girls. Consequently, we own every season. I’ve never really watched the show, partly because it feels like theirs, but I was bored today so I watched the pilot. I forget how enjoyable the show is – the dialogue sparkles and goes at the speed of light. But by the end of the episode, I realized there was another reason to watch the show – a far more important reason.

For those of you who don’t know me personally, well, let’s just say that I am a coffee lover. I drink it anytime. All the time. I have a half a pot in the morning and a half a pot before bed, and if I’m feeling really inspired, I have one in the middle of the afternoon, even in the summer. All this to say, Lorelei Gilmore is an inspiration.

Note that Lorelei has raised her daughter on coffee. Like Rory, I never stood a chance. If your mother was giving you coffee-flavored ice cream when you were 2 and buying you lattes and mochas when you were 10… well, you’d be writing this blog.


  1. this is hilarious! i am amazed at how even the clips that last for less than 1 second are making me laugh. love it!!

  3. I think people who drink coffee are sort of automatically linked together for life πŸ™‚ Kind of like sorority sisters or like the cluster of smokers out on the street corner. Lucky for us, we don’t have to worry about paying dues or dying of lung cancer.

    • You are too funny! That is so true. We are sort of automatically linked together for life. God and coffee – what more can a friendship be based on? *chuckle* πŸ™‚
