A Eulogy

This is it. It's the end. I always knew it was coming, and I actually prayed for a premature, yet dignified death, but to receive the announcement about the demise of Gilmore Girls only TWO WEEKS ahead of its fateful finale was a shock to my system nonetheless. All I needed was a little time to prepare myself for its passing, but no, the powers that be decided it would be better just to pull the plug, and the rug, right out from under me.

I guess that's the way these types of things happen. Live each day/episode like it's your last, as they say. I have no idea how they plan on wrapping up seven years of history in two short episodes, but I tell you this: if it ends with a wedding, I'm going to puke. At least Lorelie feels the same.

I propose that the world takes an hour to mourn the passing of our beloved Gilmore Girls on May 15th at 7pm Central Standard Time. Personally, I know that I will be having a memorial party at my house to mark the occasion. And by "party" I mean me, Kmack, two black veils, and a bag of Cheese and Pretzel Combos.

And all the mirrors in the house will be draped in black fabric, of course.

now all you have left to do is buy all the seasons on dvd and watch them completely in Spanish. it'll still be new to you then

Dan, my first comment ever on your blog and it seems fitting that it be about Gilmore Girls.

What will you do if its a double wedding?....gasp! There's not enough puke in the world to cover that horrible scenario.

i was wondering when you were going to post about this...great pic though

Is the title right? A eulogy? Or should it be An eulogy? Just curious.

Dan is such a great eugugolizer.

"Is the title right? A eulogy? Or should it be An eulogy? Just curious."


Of course it's right! It depends whether the vowel is phonetically functioning as a vowel or not, the same as the letter "h" (hence "an hour" but "a hospital").

Dan is a man who knows his vowel function.

Thought of Dan immediately on learning Gilmore Girls was cancelled on "Ellen" yesterday (how embarassing is that?).

The photo is something out of a Lewis Carroll seizure. I don't even know Dan living here in Canada but want to hang him in that mourning habit on my wall. Goddamn hilarious.

Bring on the crepe!

My mom cried. A lot. But she cries at everything lately.

We may have veils too... this is almost sad.

i don't want to spoil it, but i bet the final episode is going to be full of quirky people doing quirky, small-towny, wholesome things like making butter and decorating a maypole.

Well, when I first saw the title of the post and the first couple words in my RSS reader (no pic), I thought dan was announcing the end of his blog, which was horrifying. So I'm relieved it's just the end of GG and not planetdan.

This kinds makes me want to watch this show. I'm sure I'll have the chance. It's bound to be picked up by some network to be replayed over and over...which reminds me of when I got hooked on Dawson's Creek (after it had become a re-run) and watched every episode...every day...for months. Good stuff.

Another fantastic Photoshop adventure from Dan. I love the outfit!

Try to cheer up... You can always relive GG thru DVD...

I have to admit I LURVE Gilmore girls. I will be watching with your aformentioned supplies and a big ;) Oh, and "Lewis Carroll Siezure" Priceless.

MAN, that is one disturbing photo.

I didn't even know Mary Todd Lincoln had cable.

Oh this season so sucked! At least the past few episodes were decent. Here's to Lauren Graham's movie career and Alexis Blidel's (sp) future appearances on "We love the 2000s" in a where are they now quiz...
