That's Very Richard Simmons Of You


I have been up since 4:30 AM.  I've had a weird case of insomnia for two months solid, which basically means that I get a three-hour benadryl-induced sleep each night, and then wake up at four-ish.  Worse still, the sleep is accompanied by very weird dreams, which means I usually wake up tired and confused.  (Why exactly were we swimming in a large vat of oil?)

It is now 7:30 AM.  I have cleaned my entire house, completed a forty-minute work-out, showered, done some reading, checked my emails, spent an oh-so-brief amount of time on Pinterest, had breakfast, and am now drowning myself in coffee because I am about to open A Behemoth Donor Data Project that I may not finish before I die.

Today is going to take a lot of coffee.

Which naturally makes me think of the Gilmore Girls ...

... So I'm going to paste up a few of the best coffee quotes from the first season
 (lucky you).

Lorelai: Please, Luke. Please, please, please.
Luke: How many cups have you had this morning?
Lorelai: None.
Luke: Plus...
Lorelai: Five, but yours is better.
Luke: You have a problem.
Lorelai: Yes, I do.
Luke pours her coffee.
Luke: Junkie.
Lorelai: Angel. You've got wings, baby.

Luke: So what'll you have?
Lorelai: Coffee, in a vat!

Lorelai: I already had the longest day of my life and it's only ten o'clock.
Luke: There's no coffee.
Lorelai: That's not funny.
Luke: I can give you herbal tea.
Lorelai: This is not an herbal tea morning. This is a coffee morning.
Luke: Every morning for you is a coffee morning.
Lorelai: This is a jumbo coffee morning. I need coffee in an I.V.
Luke: I can give you tea and a balance bar.
Lorelai: Please, please, please tell me you're kidding.
Luke: I'm kidding.
Lorelai: You're sick.
Luke: Yep.
Lorelai: You're a fiend!
Luke: For here or to go.
Lorelai: To go please.
Luke: You want to know what this stuff does to your nervous system?
Lorelai: Do you have a chart? Because I love charts.

Lorelai: So, I brought us some coffee.
Rory: Why, I'm shocked.
Lorelai: Triple caps, easy foam. If that doesn't work, we'll stick our fingers in a light socket.

Max: Okay, Okay, um, how about coffee? Do you like coffee?
Lorelai: Only with my oxygen.

Lorelai: Luke, that is an exceptionally good batch of coffee.
Luke: Yeah? I added a little nutmeg.
Lorelai: That’s very Richard Simmons of you.

Lorelai: Rory, honey, love of my life, you realize you’ve completely cut us off from Luke’s, where the happy coffee is.
Rory: I’m sorry.
Lorelai: No, it’s okay.  Okay, we’ll just um, well, we’ll figure something out.
Rory: Sorry.
Lorelai: No, this is good. This is like ‘G.I. Jane’ but we get to keep our hair.
Rory: I just couldn’t.
Lorelai: Oh honey, say no more. Think of this as an adventure. Two girls battling the elements, desperate for survival.
Rory: Or coffee.
Lorelai: Same thing.

Rory: Just have a lot on my mind.
Lorelai: Anything I can do?
Rory: Flag down the coffee.
Lorelai: Arm going up now. Honey, you gotta wake up!
