Obsession

I had many obsessions growing up. If I saw a new movie or tv show I would research it to death until I knew the origin and every actors home town. The internet felt very new and unused. Often the research would lead me to the original source material, a book or older film. When I was about 15 the Tudors and Henry VIII 6 wives were the most intriguing. I used them as the topic of many school papers/presentations. Earlier this month Jordan and I visited the Tower of London where Anne Boleyn was beheaded! My 15 year old self was very excited.

The summer before my freshman year of high school I saw preview for a new TV show that I was certain my mom wouldn’t want me to watch. I would record the show on VHS and watch them in secret. That is until my mother walked in during an early episode and surprisingly loved it! Starting then I would watch each episode with my parents. As I graduated high school and left for college my parents turned into roommates and even my husband. Gilmore Girls ran for  7 seasons and a lot happened in that time frame. Watching the show now is such a joy because it reminds me of a wonderful simple time in my life.

You can see Lauren Graham on Parenthood.

She also has a novel which comes out this month.

    Thank you for sharing your stories. It gives us a chance to learn about you!

    1. Thanks Jenn! Gilmore Girls is so fun and I love introducing it to people. Jordan and I really enjoy Parenthood too, it’s more of a tear jerker but I agree on the great characters. The executive producer of Parenthood also worked on Friday Night Lights, which is another excellent character driven show.
