But I physically cannot talk about the Gilmore Girls revival.

Because I have taken a vow of silence until Amy Sherman-Palladino writes another season and issues a formal, hand-written apology to me.

I’m not going to spoil. I’ll let you all experience the disappointment on your own. It has seeped into my brain cells & haunted my dreams. I manage to slip GG into literally every conversation I have.

“How was your day? Mine sucked because I’m still upset about the revival, but other than that, how was your day???”

I am a monster. (Nothing new here.)

I promise I won’t blog about television for like another two weeks.

    My daughter threw herself on her own sword in disgust …. sadly she doesn’t eat mushrooms so this won’t console her but in truth I’m unsure that anything will ….

    I am not a Gilmore girls fan (sorry!) but I do love mushrooms and risotto-thanks for the recipe post. And, thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you try the french-irish beef stew and let me know what you think!
