monkey monkey underpants

to tell you the truth, jo, i've been kind of blue lately too. we must be twins or something. anyway, i thought i'd include a quote here from gilmore girls that really got me laughing last night. and it also kind of explains why i haven't been writing lately, in a weird way.



Lorelai: No, I'm not, because it turns out I can't write.
Rory: Oh, sure you can.
Lorelai: No, I can't. I stare at the blank page and I just keep staring and staring and eventually I have to get up and lubricate my eyeballs, otherwise they'll fall out of my head like raisins.
Rory: Well, are you using a pen? You can't just stare at the paper, you have to have a writing implement of some kind.
Lorelai: I have a writing implement. The problem is that everything I write just sounds so schmucky.
Rory: I'm sure that's not true... Sounds like you're overthinking this. Maybe if you just put pen to paper --
Lorelai: I tried that. I thought, I'll just sit down and write whatever comes. No judgment, no inner critic -- boy, was that a bad idea.
Rory: Really? Why?
Lorelai: Because my brain is a wild jungle full of scary gibberish. "I'm writing a letter. I can't write a letter. Why can't I write a letter? I'm wearing a green dress. I wish I was wearing my blue dress. My blue dress is at the cleaners'. 'The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.' Casablanca. Casablanca's such a good movie. Casablanca. The White House. Bush. Why don't I drive a hybrid car? I should really drive a hybrid car. I should really take my bicycle to work. Bicycle, unicycle, unitard, hockey puck, rattlesnake monkey monkey underpants."
Rory: "Hockey puck rattlesnake monkey monkey underpants"?
Lorelai: Exactly! That's what I'm saying. It's a big bag of weird in there. So I think, well, I need inspiration.

any thing gilmore girls is the best to pull yourself out of a funk. When i am stressed or sad or lazy or blue I always put it on. I just finished a whole disc from season two yesterday alone. I did nothing but escape to Stars Hallow.

I feel so much better today.

thanks everyone, for actually commenting. makes me feel good.

cindy, i whipped out the camera today so you might see the fruits of my labors soon. thanks for the advice.

d'arcy, i completely agree. there's just something about stars hollow that makes me think if it was an actual town i'd do just about anything to live there. i just finished watching the last episode of season 7 the other day and cried and cried.

I will not acquiesce in on it. I think polite post. Specially the title attracted me to be familiar with the intact story.
