Ranking of all of Lorelai's Relationships

Ranking of all of Lorelai's Relationships

Luke and Lorelai are not the best just because of alliteration.

About a week ago, I was listening to Gilmore Guys and they had a guest (I don't recall her name at the moment); and for the past eight years, she has been watching one Gilmore Girls episode a day. Isn't that the most ingenious thing you have ever heard? I decided to take that task on. I can surpass her eight years. I mean, six days in and I'm going strong. Watching an episode a day of Gilmore Girls really gets me pondering the deep meaningful questions like is there such thing as one truth and who is Lorelai's worst boyfriend? This is when I decided to tackle a slightly easier than what might be expected ranking of Lorelai's relationships from best to worst.

1. Luke Danes

No question about it. Just read the GIF!! Luke is obviously the perfect chose for Lorelai; he understands her. Love love love him.

2. Rune

Okay, I almost put him above Luke. I know that they don't date, per se. But Rune is one of the greatest characters ever written. He may be rude, high-tempered, and a hater of tall people, but no one can compare. Just read this and you will be hooked (if, for some ungodly reason, you didn't already).

"I’ve been very patient Jackson. Sunday night’s almost over, I wanna go bowling."

3. Peyton Sanders

Friends, before you yell at me for putting another guest star right away. But there is no way one of Lorelai's actual boyfriends could come next. It is just not logical. Peyton may have been only in one episode, but he made a lifelong impact. His love for wine and cars is comical and he's also rich which is a huge plus. Lorelai should've stuck it out for the Bowie concert, merely to catch another glimpse of him.

4. Max Medina

I'm not a huge fan of this fella, but I also don't despise him completely. He at least keeps up with Lorelai and Rory's banter better than some (Jason, for instance). Max is a dec, or so, guy to pass the time. But there is no why this relationship would last because of Luke existing!!

5. Paul

Lorelai's dabble in casual dating. A little shady that he showed up with his parents at Luke's like a day after their date, but you know, he gave us a few laughs and the burrito bit will live on.

6. Alex Lesman

I wouldn't call him one of her boyfriends, but they go out on a few dates, somehow I always--I mean ALWAYS forget about him. No matter how many times I rewatch the show I don't recall his existence. He's pretty much irrelevant. Although, thinking of him does always prompts me to make a long list of coffee shop name ideas.

7. Digger (Jason) Stiles

I literally loathe this man. He has no likable or desirable qualities. I was extremely disconcerted while listening to Gilmore Guys and both Demi and Kevin said that they LIKED Digger. How is that possible? Tell me, please. He is the most odious man alive.

8. Christopher Hayden

I would be disappointed if I needed to explain myself, however. I still will, briefly. Christopher was never there and that counts. He is an awful human being, boyfriend, husband, and, of course, father. However, I will refrain from ranting further about his poor parenting skills because this is about his and Lorelai's relationship. He never understands Lorelai and what she needs and wants in life. He blames he after he leaves her for Sherry when she is pregnant. Explain that to me, please. Actually, don't because the only good thing they did in the revival was have Rory tear him down. I mean she killed it! Lorelai deserves the world and he is a crumb that they swept under the stove.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
