Creamy Carrot Soup Recipe a perfect gluten free, paleo or vegetarian soup to serve this comfort food season. Plus, it's delicious so no one will judge you.
I am going to come right out and say it.
Gilmore Girls is dead to me.
( I think I just heard you gasp through the screen.)
Not that I didn't binge watch all of it in two night. (talk about ripping that band-aid off). And not that I didn't in some part of me love seeing the only cast I ever watched (unless you count Archer or
Top Gear Grand Tour as a cast) return to the screen. Nope, it was nice seeing everyone. All hunky dory and what not.
But SPOILER ALERT.
I absolutely hated Rory.
I had realized that she and Lorelai are both rather selfish and oblivious years ago, but still, it was a human error. We aren't all perfect and hell, most of us are rather selfish all of the time. I forgave them. They were witty, funny, quick, and the stable mother-daughter relationship I wished I'd had as a child of a single parent. (Seriously, who is that perfectly 'dysfunctional'?).
But not, Rory is just a spoiled brat.
Who acts that way at 32? Grow up princess. Popping about from one place to another from where? Her magical trust fund? To romp around with a dude that's getting married. Sure, his abs were killer, but grow a backbone.
And then just to whine and whine and whine about not being back, missing her super suit, and getting nowhere. We all acknowledged, she was actually a pretty terrible in the pre-Wookie boinking scene, but that just really put it over the top.
I understand the creators trying to show the current struggle of today's society. College degree's not being a promised career and the struggle of making it work in 2016, but really it just came off as Rory not being handed everything. Cry me a river.
So yes, I wish I could run off in a random steampunk made up fairy land with 4 richer-than-the-pope-self-absorbed-asshats, but maybe I just got old.
Maybe I grew up, and Rory didn't.
And, we can all agree that the musical was a waste of time. A serious waste of time.
Gilmore Girl Revival Pro's: Kirk wins. Luke's speech (finally). Emily's badassery. Sookie's cameo. Michelle, my god I love Michelle.
PS. Can we talk about how rather mean the '3o-something group' was? I mean, isn't the majority of Gilmore Girl fans probably in that exact demographic? I certainly took it as a personal snub.
PPS. I will always be #TeamJess
And now for a soup recipe that has absolutely nothing to do with Gilmore Girls.... but it is pretty freaking delicious, so make Creamy Carrot Soup for your next Netflix binge.
