It has been ages, since I found this fun tag on the Blossom Twins’ blog, after actually bonding over the Gilmore Girls Netflix special back in 2016. That’s how long the questions have been lingering in my drafts. Typical me! But I’ve always loved the Gilmore Girls, and the show or this tag never get old, so I felt like doing it now. If you’re a fan as well, please answer the questions yourself, because I would love to discuss these very important aspects of the show. *crosses fingers for everyone to pick the right team*
1. Let’s get the tough question out the way first…Team Dean, Team Jess or Team Logan?
Isn’t this the most discussed Gilmore Girls question? I don’t even have to think about dismissing Dean. I mean, her first love and all, but I found him extremely boring and he tried to hold Rory back. He wanted a classic housewife and we all know that’s not exactly what a Gilmore is made of. She had wayyy too much ambition compared to him. And the whole sleeping with your ex before your wedding thing? That’s a big fat NO!
I liked Jess. Of course I did, because bad boys are my thing. I loved that he was the free spirit to Rory’s controlled self, but I don’t know, if I wanted to be someone, who doesn’t have any self-control, who is definitely too emotional and who just leaves, when things get hard. I definitely liked his creative side and that he loved reading, though. But I don’t think that he’s the man to have a future with.
Which leaves Logan. He may come off as arrogant, snobby – just your typical rich boy, but I always loved how much of an effort he made for Rory. He may have had an “I’ll get you to be my girl” kind of attitude, but he worked to make her fall for him and didn’t just expect her on a silver platter. And I feel like he stood up for her, especially to his father. He loved her ambition and supported her decisions. Maybe he had a hard time accepting that she didn’t want his help, but his intentions were always good. However, I was disappointed in his ultimatum to either move to the West Coast with him, or to break up. Yeah, long distance is hard, but she has a right to live her dreams, as well.
I just have such a hard time picking a team, but it sure as hell isn’t Dean.
2. You stop by Luke’s Diner, your go to menu item is: Blueberry muffin, Pastry, French toast, Burger and Fries or pancakes with strawberries?
All of it sounds absolutely amazing, but I would probably opt for burger and fries. I can never say no to that, although I’m usually more of a sweet tooth.
3. Harvard or Yale?
Harvard. It just sounds so good. And I already have the shirt for it at home.
4. It’s time for the Star’s Hollow ‘Bid on a Basket’ festival. What are you putting in your basket?
Definitely a bag of Doritos, because I’m so classy. Also water, cause I’m not super big on alcohol, but I’ll pack a beer for my date. Maybe some meat balls, definitely my mom’s pasta salad, cheese, grapes and some chocolate for after. Or I’d do a breakfast basket with hard-boiled eggs, pancakes, fruit, yoghurt and a thermos full of tea.
5. What’s your favourite Gilmore Girls treat food? Pop tarts, Pizza, Chinese, Twinkies?
Chinese for sure. If I want to treat myself, that’s what I get. Usually sweet and sour shrimp with lots and lots of white rice. I really have to pay my favorite Chinese food place a visit soon.
6. Friday night dinners or Star’s Hollow Town meeting?
Watching Gilmore Girls, I keep thinking how lovely this little town is and how sweet and helpful most of the people are, but in reality, I would probably go nuts. But I’ll definitely choose the town meeting. Emily and Richard often remind me of my own grandparents and as much as I love them, I don’t need to sit through a dinner with them, every week. And I mean, with the whole money borrowing thing, it’s forced anyway. I’d rather have Taylor annoy me.
7. Christopher, Max, Jason or Luke?
When you leave me hanging for 16 years, you can just go to hell, so Christopher would definitely not even come close to getting a chance. Jason also wasn’t my thing. Max was really great, but imagine your mother bringing home one of your teachers. I would’ve died. But aside from that, he’s a great guy. All my votes go to Luke, though. He’s just the best. When I think of a keeper, it’s him. The only thing that bothers me, was when April enters his life and he pushes Lorelai away. Great that he wanted to be with his daughter, but you know, a little over dramatic. But in the end, they got married, and that makes me insanely happy.
8. Rory’s ideal night alone is doing laundry in her pajamas, while eating Indian food. What would your ideal night alone be?
She sounds a lot like me, but my food would probably be Chinese and instead of doing laundry, I’d just binge-watch TV shows. Although thinking about it, I do clean the bathroom pretty late, when nobody is home. We’re basically twins.
9. Who would you rather hang out with, Paris, Lane or Marty?
Lane for sure. She’s creative, fun and having a childhood friend is truly a nice thing. Paris is just too much and we would get into huge fights, cause I would never let anyone push me around like that. And Marty who? I hardly paid attention too him. Too needy and you don’t get a girlfriend, when you’re actually in love with her best friend. That was him, right?
10. Finally, with ‘A Year in the life’ just around the corner, what season would you love to visit Stars Hollow in?
Well, it has actually been almost two years, since it hit Netflix and I remember being sooo excited. I love a lot of things about every season, but fall is my absolute favorite. And Connecticut is beautiful during this time of year. Also Halloweeeeeen.
