Gilmore Girls Again

We’re watching Gilmore Girls again.  And again.  The youngest person in the house is now exactly the right age to find Lorelai and Rory fascinating.  Everything about their relationship, their town, their troubles and triumphs, their fast-talking search for wisdom – all of it  – watched and discussed right here.

Writers/producers, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino are creative past any point I can imagine.  Because of the quirky charm of Gilmore Girls (now available on Netflix) I followed them to their next shows, Bunheads (haven’t found it streaming yet) and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon.

When my blogging buddy, Dave Williams and I were both on the radio in Los Angeles, he spoke often of his devotion to the show. I came to it later thinking, if Dave’s so crazy about this, I’ll give it a try.

Now, thanks to the magic of streaming, we have the opportunity to re-visit the town of Stars Hollow and share interesting conversations at home with the resident teen.

 

 

 

 

All those empty boxes!

After Christmas a friend said, only half-kidding, that he should hire himself out as a break-er down-er of Amazon boxes.  A news report later covered how many pounds of flattened Amazon boxes were taken to  recycling centers.  A staggering number. (Photo/Getty Images)

Our Amazon boxes lived outside under the eaves for weeks.  We flattened them bit by bit to squish them into the recycle bin for pickup.  We just finished the stack from Christmas.

Only after the holidays did I learn about Give Back Box.  I haven’t checked it out yet, but it looks interesting – a way to do some good while re-using all those empty boxes.

 

Bedtime Companion

Early to bed, whether or not it’s daylight saving time.  This is my “Peeramid” for books and tablets.  Perfect for tummy TV.  It has pockets for granola bars. 

 

 

 

Mine is blue.

 

I got mine at Amazon, but this isn’t a commercial, just a picture of my real life at night.  That lady in the photo isn’t me.  Not nearly enough flannel on her.
