  1. $600 to babysit four kids for a month? That's a steal if I ever saw one. I mean, I realize they're not toddlers and don't have to be watched all the time, but she still had to make sure they got home from school, had meals, did their homework, etc.
  2. Chit-Chat

    All this talk about cat burglars reminds me of an 8 Is Enough episode I saw years ago. All the older kids got arrested. Nicholas felt left out. So, he decided to become a cat burglar. He picked a cat up off the street, took it to the police station and turned himself in and pretty much demanded to be arrested.

    I think you're only supposed to recline at nighttime. On like overnight flights. I remember one time I was on a flight (not overnight). The person in front of me reclined all the way, so I reclined because I felt like he was pretty much in my lap. The person behind me asked me if could put my seat backup. So, I did and felt like I had someone sleeping in my lap for the rest of my flight.
  4. Ring-shaped food. Onion rings, doughnuts, bundt cake.
  5. Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    She's either just wicked nosy, or she was trying to dig up dirt to discredit people for some reason. Seems weird that this made the news, though. Is being a Jeopardy champ enough to propel you to "star" status, or would this have made the news if I did it (not that I would).
  6. The only way that response was warranted over a broken arm is if you're dealing with an athlete or a violinist or something. Or, if they have some underlying medical condition that makes healing a broken bone more difficult and time-consuming.

    That's why I have a landline, though. If all the annoying people (by that I mean the salespeople, not the relatives) are calling that number, that means that they're not calling my cell phone. So, businesses that need my phone number but aren't going to call me with anything urgent get my landline.
  8. Nitpicking

    That's not as rare as you might think.
  9. He might just have done the math wrong. This is Kirk we're talking about. That's pretty normal nowadays. My sister had her first kid at 35. My best friend's sister had her first kid at 31. A woman I worked with a few years ago had her first kid at 37.
  10. It was stated that Lorelai had Rory when she was 16, Rory had her 21st birthday, so that would make Lorelai 37, which I would consider still mid-thirties. She didn't tell Max he wasn't allowed to talk to Rory or have a relationship. Just that she was pretty much done being raised.
  11. Shawn and Caroline also have at least one great-great grand, I think. Roman's their son, Sami granddaughter, will great grandon, Ariana great great granddaughter. She's still little last I checked, but Caroline is still alive (last I checked, but it's been a while).
  12. And in the same vein, children aging faster than they're supposed to. And practically catching up to older siblings. And, in some cases surpassing older cousins. I'm talking about soap operas, of course. I hate SORASing. I always have. I always will. I'm lobbying to make it illegal. Free speech be darned.
  13. Nitpicking

    Or have her skirt rip so that her underwear is showing, or her blouse lose a button so that her bra is showing. After they leave the house, but they're running late so she can't do anything about it. Both could happen to anyone, and both are embarrassing and non-Emily approved.
  14. I don't think most people have a problem with Lorelai attempting to help with the gift. But, she took it too far when she basically insulted his gift picking out abilities and insisted that he was doing it wrong. Completely different circumstances, but I once went birthday shopping with a new boyfriend for his four year old daughter. He'd known her her whole life and he'd already happily introduced me. But, she liked horses so he was picking out a toy horse and he picked one out without a mane that you could brush. So, I suggested a different horse, and he was like "what's wrong with this one?" I said, "You can't brush its mane." "Is that important?" "Clearly you were never a little girl." "Nope." He ended up buying her the horse I suggested, but I never in a million years would have argued with him about it. Plus, I only tweaked, I didn't do a whole 180 with what he was picking, and insult his ideas as a whole. That's really what Lorelai was doing.
