brief note  
Just a brief note to say I'm alive. I need to re-instigate the "no internet computer until the words are done" rule, it seems, as I've been dorking around online a great deal and not doing any work at all. Or not much, anyway. Chapter 20 is finally done and I think I have about 12 more, and at this point I need to write 2 a day in order to finish by the end of the month. Not impossible (or even all that difficult, if I just bleeding well *do* it), but I've been letting myself slide and must needs stop.

Jess has not yet won me back, though the swan fight was funny. I hope he *did* listen to the rant-and-rave phone message Rory left him, 'cause he's not treating her well enough and just because he got concert tickets for something doesn't make up for him never calling. Also, I think Dean's new girlfriend is cute and, having been spoiled for something in Dean's future, I'm real curious about her. :)

The episode in which Sherry and Christopher's daughter was born, where they had the flashbacks to Lorelai's pregnancy, was quite nicely done, although the casting sort of made me cringe (it worked, but was not inspiring). Interesting: the pre-pregnancy Lorelai seemed, at least in that episode, far less like a rebel than she's been painted as. I don't believe that child would've gone off to Europe with Christopher after graduation, for example. And did Lorelai live at home for a whole *year* after Rory's birth? Emily said the baby carriage had been in the way "for the last year". That seems like way too much time, to me.

What else? Augh, poor Paris. I'm sort of waiting to see how the whole not getting into Harvard thing resolves, because I can hardly imagine her not going to Harvard. Poor Paris. Even if she's been an absolute idiot over the whole Francie storyline, having a meltdown on C-Span is rather more punishment than she deserves. :)

I did remember that the farmer's market is today, but it's too late to go to it now (and it's starting to rain). Oops. Oh well.

It's 3:30. I should have some lunch.

Wow, you are moving at a fantastic rate. :-)

Paris seems to epitomize the principal that some people in life get exactly what they deserve, and at the same time how deeply unfair that fairness is. She always seems just on the cusp of growing up enough to figure out how to harness that massive raw power she possesses - and then does something to totally sabotage herself. But at least she's never dull.

You've got, what, two seasons left to catch up to the present? I think there's just been two post-Chilton seasons. Then you have to wait like the rest of us, only moreso because you're in Ireland. I wonder if people bit-torrent new Gilmore Girls to our friends across the sea?

Three post-Chilton seasons, actually.

Season 5 is certainly available in stores. Season 6 might be...

And soon there will be Danny Strong!

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Yeah, he moved from appearing occasionally on Buffy directly to appearing occasionally on Gilmore Girls. I actually complemented him on the GG work at a convention once. He was happy to find out that people were still enjoying his work.

I also sought and received his assistance in getting admittance to a sold-out Buffy convention so as to get lots of autographs, in exchange for a MoveOn.org donation, but that's another story.
