Tina Fey(daughter Alice Richmond) does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge [x]
Can we talk about this scene and how I got so emotional about it? This rift between Lorelai and Rory is completely wrecking her world. She is not doing so great, no matter how she wants others to see her. Richard is slowly realizing that Rory is changing and turning into this socialite girl whose boyfriend gets her expensive things while she is still not in school. Emily tried to reach Lorelai in her odd way, threatening to get rid of one of Lorelai’s best childhood memories. Maybe Emily thought if Lorelai came over to get it, stuff would get resolved, but obviously she didn’t really care or thought it through.
Richard knows that the dollhouse is important and while he and Lorelai never had a close relationship, he saves this childhood memory. I think it is like a peace offering to get Lorelai on his side to “talk about Rory” as he says soon after. Still, I think this moment, we got to see such a sweet father/daughter moment with not jokes or anything. It was just a pure, sweet moment.
I don’t think I ever showed you guys this but we have a dog named Booker and this is his tag.

i always wondered what the fuck this scene was about
DID YOU KNOW:
The Little Mermaid was written as a love letter by Hans Christian Anderson to Edvard Collin. Anderson, upon hearing of Collin’s engagement to a young woman, proclaimed his love to him. He told him ”I long for you as though you were a beautiful Calabrian girl.” Edvard Collin turned Anderson down, disgusted. Anderson then wrote The Little Mermaid to symbolize his inability to have Collin just as a mermaid cannot be with a human. He sent it to Collin in 1936 and it goes down in history as one of the most profound love letters ever written.
Most scholars and psychoanalysts concluded that Anderson was bisexual; however, he never acted upon his homosexual drives.
The Little Mermaid, as it was originally written, did not have a happy ending.
With the greatest respect, that might say more about how you read the book than it does about the book you thought you read. Take a look at American Gods again and let me know what you find…
