The World of Stars Hollow (Feb 19 - 21 Weekend part 1)

February 19, 2010

Tita Clar, Cousin Panget and me initially planned a Baguio trip last weekend (Feb 19 - 22) for the Panagbenga celebration but it got changed to this coming weekend because apparently, the festival's main attraction, The Flower Float Parade will be held on Feb 28, 2010.

This worked out well for me because I had a bac-up plan of attending the QSP Team Get Together after almost two years that I left PBCom and transferred to CVG1.

Friday was a drag because I had nothing planned that day so I just stayed at home and watched reruns of Gilmore Girls in DVD.

I can still remember how engrossed I was with this series when it first came out in local TV (Studio 23). I was still in college then and I had to fight Tita Clar for TV rights every Saturday nights @ 9pm. Lorelie (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) were fun to watch. Their co-dependent, bordering on unhealthy relationship, as mom-and-daughter tandem will make you want to have a mom as cool as Lorelie with you being the cool, smart and boy-irresistible Rory.

As I was on the same age as Rory by then and her story appealed to me most. She started out as an underdog in a private high school, Chilton, and emerged as the class valedictorian. She was so unassuming and humble about her accomplishments, she didn't even brag about the fact that she is really good at school and that she was named first of the class. She was on her way to a Harvard education and nothing will stop her to get in the Ivy-Leagues. On the side, you will fall in love with Rory's first boyfriend, Dean Forrester (Jared Padalecki) and the bad-boy, second boyfriend Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia) and eventually to the very cute and wealthy Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry).

This summary could not end without me mentioning the other boys that attracted my attention. Rory's father, Christopher Hayde (David Sutcliffe), with his scruffy look and the Harley Davidson. Tristin Dougray (Chad Michael Murray) and the pained look in his eyes when Rory said "I Love You" for the first time to Dean. Marty (Wayne Wilcox), the naked guy in the hallway and Lane's Dave Rygalski (Adam Brody) and his harrased look after he read the Bible in one night tryin to decipher what Mrs. Kim answered him when he asked Lane out for prom.

I will always be thankful I stumbled into the fictional world of Star's Hollow that the Gilmore Girls have given me. I can just close my eyes and dream of Luke's Diner, Miss Patty's show room, the Independence Inn and The Dragonfly, Taylor Doose's market... all of these makes me realize, life is too good to waste.
