the gilmore girls tag

*this post does contain spoilers for the original seven seasons*

AHHHHHHH. There are only two days left until the Year In A Life: Gilmore Girls Revival lands on Netflix and I am so excited I can barely sit still.  I'm currently trying to motor my way through and rewatch all of the original seven before but with two days and three and a half seasons left to watch I'm admitting an early defeat.  I mean, in terms of hours it is actually doable but it's also only possible if I don't sleep at all and also write an apology letter to my lecturer for a) rocking up on friday looking like death on legs and b) not doing a single thing to prepare for the lectures and she's nice but she's not that nice..

But anyway my poor time management aside (honestly; how many months have I had to easily rewatch the entire show!?) I was scrolling through twitter earlier today and found The Blossom Twins Gilmore Girls Tag and it looked very cool and I decided I'd do it! 

1) Team Dean, Team Jess or Team Logan?
     I mean, this is an easy question right? Because Jess and Rory are the ultimate couple of all time!  Yes I know, he was a bit of a jerk but he was a clever jerk and to me he just had the best bond with Rory because anyone she can discuss books with in such detail is always going to be the best pick.

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? 
     Well to be honest I think I'd turn up as soon as Luke opened the door and just sit there all day ordering each option one by one!  But I guess if I was on my way to Chilton (ha who am I kidding) I'd go for french toast; any other time of day would definitely be burger and fries.

3) Harvard or Yale?
     See this is a very hard question for me because how am I supposed to choose between following in Rory's footsteps or pulling an Elle Woods??  Ultimately Lorelai's speech about the Yale drama society has me sold, so buy me a blue sweater and a plane ticket 'cause I'm going to Yale.

4) It's time for the Star's Hollow 'Bid on a Basket' festival. What are you putting in your basket?
      Confession time: I can cook a total of five things, one of them being a boiled egg, and my "is it done" radar runs on how many burnt bits there are so whoever got my basket might be a little disappointed.  But I can do a mean chicken pesto pasta salad so I'd throw some of that in there, and butterfly cakes with sparkly sprinkles because they are amazing and I'm still a four year old.

5) What's your favourite Gilmore Girls treat food? Pop tarts, Pizza, Chinese, Twinkies?
       I've never had a Twinkie or a Pop tart but the other two are my go-to takeway foods and I can never ever decide which one I want; pizza is great for movie nights but a mountain of chinese food just makes my heart happy.. Hmm I think I'm going to have to go for Chinese though; it's just SO good.  (Also it wasn't listed as an option but I'd like to have doughnuts afterwards to just push me over the edge and into full on food-baby mode.)

6)  Friday night dinners or Star's Hollow Town meeting?
     I have issues with the Gilmore Grandparents (who doesn't?) but I think the opportunity to attend a Friday Night Dinner is not one that comes around very often so I guess have to pick that (sorry Taylor.) And as a visitor to Stars Hollow; unless my dreams have come true and I'm living there; a town meeting maybe wouldn't be as entertaining..

7) Christopher, Max, Jason or Luke?
     Luke. Hands down, no question about it Luke!  There was always a thing between them, even when there wasn't, and I shipped them together before I even knew what shipping was. 

8) Rory's ideal night alone is doing laundry in her pajamas, while eating Indian food. What would your ideal night alone be? 
     The only similarity between mine and Rory's ideal nights alone are the pyjamas; I'd have a bubble bath then get into my comfiest warmest pair; pull on some fluffy socks and make a giant mug of tea.  I'd watch a film; Harry Potter is always a good go-to and then curl up in bed and read until I fell asleep.

9) Who would you rather hang out with, Paris, Lane or Marty?
     I love Lane to pieces but her mother scares me beyond belief and my knowledge of music is more musicals than anything well known so I have to pick Paris; who while also terrifying seems like a really good friend and definitely someone I could talk about books and interesting things with for hours.

10) Finally, with 'A Year in the life' just around the corner, what season would you love to visit Stars Hollow in? 
     All of them! I'd be the Dragonfly's best customer because I'd just keep coming back every few months. If I have make a choice right now I would go for Winter though because it always looks so pretty with the snow and twinkling lights, I'd love to wander around all bundled up in a coat and woolly scarf before heading to Luke's to warm up.

If you are a Gilmore Girl's fan then I tag you to answer these questions; just make sure you let Lucy and Kelly know by tagging them in a tweet!
