Get thee to Amazon today to order Lauren Graham's very first authoring attempt- Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel.
In celebration of it's release, Lauren will be appearing on Seth Speaks (with Seth Rudetsky on Sirius Broadway) tomorrow. In addition, she will be on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo on Thursday!
If you can't wait for that, here's an interview from today on HuffPostLive!
So, our next episode is That Damn Donna Reed (s1:e14). It's a great episode... there's a rogue chick, a strand of pearls, Lime Fantasy Supreme, and an "almost" moment between Luke and Lorelai.
The only issue with this episode is that there are three literary references. The first is to A Streetcar Named Desire (Stanley the Chick turns into Stella the Chick once Rory clarifies for Lorelai what junk she has in her possession) which we recently read. The second is to Don F
And here we go again! We move onto Christopher Returns (s1:e15) and, again, not a usable literary reference in the entire episode!

Almost as badly as I want ALL THE DRINKS! This long, sober 9 months reminded me of the below exchange between Sookie and Lorelai from might be, arguably, my favorite Gilmore girls episode ever "They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?" (aka The Dance Marathon- s 3: e 7).
Sookie: All of a s
In the third installment of Deep Thoughts from Damp Tresses (see here for explanation), I read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. My friend, Adrienne, is an AP Literature teacher and was about to start this book with her seniors and had asked if I had ever read it. I, unfortunately, had not and she just thought that was a travesty. So, I went back in time and joined a bunch of high schoolers in reading a book that I now realize to be an overlooked classic.
I might be introducing this next episode well after I've finished both books for that episode. So let's just be upfront and get all this shit posted in rapid succession so we can move on.
Our next episode is titled (s1:e13) Concert Interruptus. In this episode, Stars Hollow is throwing a town rummage sale and Casa de Gilmore is the drop off point. Due to Lorelai's discovery of a hideous bedazzled something-or-other, we learn that Luke had a serious girlfriend once-upon-a
