Where You Lead

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

On a rough day, one thing is a sure fix, every single time.  

It's me and The Chief and Baby Sister.  It's comfort television at it's finest.  Everything I really need to know in life, I learned from Gilmore Girls...

1.  Always sing along to movie and television theme songs.  Case in point.

2.  It is perfectly acceptable to have unique names for people or pets or objects.  Hello Paul Anka (the dog, not the man).

3.  You should do what the rest of the world thinks is completely nuts.  Those days are the best memories.

4.  Marshmallows have significant nutritional value.

5.  Carrots do not.

6.  It's most important to just not have a plan sometimes.

7.  Fancy pants parties aren't nearly as fun as the fun parties.

8.  When in doubt, stay in, stay safe, and eat pancakes.

9.  There are lots of different paths in life.  They all turn out ok.

10.  In the end, it always comes back to the people who were there in the very beginning.

And one final confession: I still sing along to the Gilmore Girls theme every single time, head tilt and all.  It's like a little bit of home in New York City.  And, by the way, if you listen to the full lyrics of the theme song, you get this...

"I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill
But if you want to live in New York city, honey, you know I will"

All you ever needed in life, right there in Star's Hollow.


  1. Sister. Clearly numbers 1, 4, and 8 are of most importance. But all 10 are definitely worth sharing. Especially to people who may not think quite like us.

  3. Love this. Seriously, love this. Oh, and is it okay to mention that my mom's ringtone when she calls me and when I call her is "If you're out on the road, feeling lonely and so cold. All ya have to do is..." :) Miss you, nyckt. ;)
