Four years later and here I am, still in love with the Gilmore Girls . Maybe that's partly due to the fact that I lost my momentum in keeping up with the show; being forced to watch Dancing With Stars and whatever else may have been on during the time slot of first run and second run episodes.

Perhaps that's why I just watched Season 3 for the second time, after buying my 13 year old the disc set for his birthday in June. Because despite the fact that he has a crush on Rory Gilmore , I must admit that I can't stay out of Stars Hollow either. In fact, if I had a chance to move to any of the towns used as inspiration for the fictional town depicted on tv, or the Ontario town where some of the exteriors were shot ... If I was offered a chance to live there while writing full time for pay, I wouldn't hesitate to pack a green duffle bag like the one Jess had on the bus when he left town in search of his biological dad.

As much as I'm a loner like Luke , I'd love to have someone to give an awkward hug to, as he did when he found out that Rory was accepted into several colleges of her choice. I'd love to live in a town where everyone knows everybody's business, spreads said business, while still having a genuine affection for the person of whom's business said person is spreading.

Coffee and a large breakfast at the diner every morning. Take out or dinner at the diner every night. Friday at the grandparents' house. Hanging out with my cool Korean friend, listening to cool alternative music that I have to hide under the floorboards, or else my very strict church going mom will beat me with her Bible belt.

Talking at an extra fast pace, referencing strange and absract trivia within the context of casual conversation. I mean, I too watched Fame and The Brady Bunch Variety Show , so I could keep up. Really I could. Really, really, I could.

Most of all, I want a long porch where I can listen to the crickets and watch the goings on of my crazy, quirky friends with a five subject spiral notebook on my lap; turning reality into fiction for a few hours before digging under my bed or in my dresser drawer for the perfect book to cap the night off with ... Yes, in 2011 I still love the Gilmore Girls and I am not ashamed.

He is an avid classic comic book reader, non popular music lover and tv-show-on-dvd binge watcher who shops the clearance racks near and far to find the best deals. He would like to think he knows everything important within the realm of Pop culture. But in actuality, he only knows about 99.9 percent of what he thinks he knows.

How cool is it that someone would take the time to go this indepth into a fictional world loved by so many. My version of the Star Trek phenomenon.
