I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! Mine was very nice having my Dad’s side of the family over to our home. It was also my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian and had no difficulty foregoing turkey this year and instead, reached for a second portion of deviled eggs.

Also, like most girls who grew up in the early 2000s, I binge watched the Gilmore Girl reboot this weekend.  The mini-series was a little lacking in the pizzaz the original series held and the scene with Rory, Logan and their college friends was utterly ridiculous.  However, as a whole it filled the fan’s need for a reunion.  I won’t go into spoilers for those who haven’t watched it but the last four words made sense to me, it created a full circle, and think they fit better now than they would have nine years ago.  Overall, it was six hours well spent.

  1. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving, and that it posed no problem from a vegetarian standpoint! The Gilmore Girls reunion does seem to be very popular! Nice that they were able to revisit it and give fans another chance to see those characters.

    Looking forward to your Narnia post this week!

    • Thanks Greg, I’ve always prefered the sides at Thanksgiving so forgoing turkey wasn’t that difficult. The Gilmore Girls was really fun to watch and was nice revisiting Star’s Hallow. Thank you for commenting.

  2. I lived a long time as a vegetarian and found it the most difficult at Thanksgiving more than any other time, so I am glad to hear that you didn’t have the same difficulty.
    Lolita has been on my TBR for a long while, and I have vowed to finally pick it up and read it before years end, so I am off to read your review.

  3. I have a feeling my daughter will eventually become a vegetarian, she loves vegetables and if you even mention what a steak is made of she sort of turns a nice shade of green. I think if she really thinks about it, it will happen soon. 🙂

    I have never watched the Gilmore Girls, I might check it out if I need a good binge series. It seems like everyone loves it but I have noticed a few people say it wasn’t what they expected. I am looking forward to season 2 of fuller house 🙂

    I hope you have a great week, Whitney! Happy Reading!

    • I became a vegetarian after I realized I wouldn’t want to eat my cat so why is it okay to eat a chicken. I think the change has been more difficult on my parents because of meal planning but we’ve made it work.

      I’m binge watching the original Gilmore Girls again after seeing the reboot, it is so witty and quick, I think it makes a great Netflix marathon. I had a suspicion about the final four words but it was nice to see how they delivered it. I also think they left it open for a re-reboot.

  4. Also binge-watched Gilmore Girls. And, as Deborah mentioned, that “Wookie” might figure into what happened to Rory. But then there was Logan. A conundrum.

    Now there must be more! Right?

    Although, yes, that Life and Death Brigade scenario could have gone on the “cutting room floor.”

    Deviled eggs sound good for Thanksgiving…or any time.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  5. I hope to get to Gilmore Girls this week so I’m skipping over all bloggers’ mentions of it for now. The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane interests me and I want to learn more about it. Have a good week!

    (We used to be vegetarian for years, and for holidays I was fine with just eating more of some of the decadent side dishes, but it was rough on the kids. We’ve since “fallen off the wagon” and eat poultry and fish now but maybe someday…)

    • I was all about that second helping of stuffing! being a vegetarian is quiet the commitment, I can understand that it would be hard on the kids.

      I’m looking forward to reading The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, Lisa See is a great historical fiction writer. Thank you for commenting.

    I was so excited for the Gilmore Girl reboot! But I agree with you; the Life and Death Brigade scene and the Stars Hollow musical both were far too long, extravagant, and kind of superfluous to me. I would’ve preferred more meaningful scenes in their place. But I can’t complain too much since I feel blessed even to have a reunion in the first place!
