coffee, please.

i’m not quite sure which rock i was living under the first time the gilmore girls burst onto our screens but somehow i managed to miss out on the joys of stars hollow the first time around. in the years since the show disappeared from screen i’ve had so many people recline in shock when they hear i’ve never seen it and tell me i must rectify the situation immediately, especially given how much the show revolves around one of
