The other side of the Gilmore Girls coin
Now we flip the coin over to come to the important question of the ages: Which Gilmore Girls character is most awesome? There is so much awesome to go around!
Candidate 1: Lorelai
Evidence: She’s a strong independent woman. Expert at witty repartee. Looks good in clothes. Seems to get a lot of work done without putting forth any visible effort. Apparently a smart businesswoman because she can afford a staff of 20 at the inn, with only 10 rooms.
Candidate 2: Rory (she doesn’t get a bolded name because everything about her is so not bold. She’ll be lucky to make italics).
Evidence: Smarty pants. Hard worker. Not an ounce of trouble to anyone. Rules follower. Trustworthy. Eventually a cute dresser.
Candidate 3: Emily
Evidence: Nobody’s fool. Will of iron. Snappy dresser. Doesn’t miss much. Makes gorgeous floral arrangements.
Candidate 4: Richard
Evidence: Gentleman. Good head for business. Sharp dresser, articulate, kind to everyone but the business partner he knifed in the back.
Candidate 5: Dean
Evidence: Hard worker. Humble. Athletic. Nice to everyone he meets. He built his girlfriend a car. Dated for 2 teenage years apparently without pressuring his girlfriend for sex.
Candidate 6: Jess
Evidence: Kinda cute. Employee of the month. Knows how to drive a forklift. Um…reaching here.
Candidate 7: Taylor
Evidence: Strong sense of civic duty. Good businessman. Um….
Candidate 8: Kirk
Evidence: He has all the jobs. Speaks forthrightly. And…what else?
Candidate 9: Sookie
Evidence: Cutie pie. Awesome chef. Good friend. Good wife and mom. Sweet as a meringue cookie.
Candidate 10: Luke
Evidence: Manly. Hard-working. Looks good in jeans (though a little too much like my brother for my perving purposes). Honest. Loves his dad. Super dependable. Handy.
Candidate 11: Michel
Evidence: Kind to his dogs. Looks good in suits. And…I’m out.
Ok, there’s 11 good solid candidates. I could reach into the second-string, slightly less awesome ranks of Miss Patty, Babette and Rory’s vaguely-drawn roommates. And I’m leaving out Paris because I couldn’t think of any good attributes.
It just goes to show you, we’re all lovely if you think about it hard enough. Or at least the characters in Stars Hollow are. Take your pick.
Ok, step up and vote. Who will take the Crown of Awesomeness?
