These are my confessions, Part 2

Most all who know me well know that my all time very favorite TV show is Gilmore Girls. Although, I'm not sure if it is known just how deep this love goes. I shall attempt to illustrate.

The addiction is best evidenced on Facebook. I have an application on Facebook called "Addicted to Gilmore Girls." On this application, like the other media applications, there is a trivia section. I have spent some time over the last couple of years answering the trivia questions. Each question is worth 10 points. As of right now, my score is 53,510. Yes, that means I have answered 5,351 questions correctly. Keep in mind that doesn't include the questions I have missed. Even with my score of over 50,000 points, I am still only ranked 1,384 out of 201,908.

How can people even come up with so many different questions? Well, for one, people end up creating questions like this: "In the high school graduation episode, what color is Lorelai's dress?" From that approach, you can probably create a hundred questions from just one episode. There are seven seasons and 22 episodes per season (except season 1 which has 21 episodes). With 100 questions per episode, that's 15,300 questions. So at 10 points a piece, there is the potential for over 150,000 points.

I'm sure your next thought is - wow, what kind of people know enough about a TV show to write AND answer so many questions?? I'll
tell you. I own every season on DVD (except 7 because it was plain horrible). I have a season in my room at all times. It plays on my laptop when I'm getting ready for work in the morning. It plays when I'm falling asleep at night. It will also be playing if I am doing household things, like folding laundry, cleaning my room/bathroom, etc. I start at season 1 and got until I finish and then start all over again. I have no idea how many times I've seen every episode, but it's a lot. Needless to say, I rock the socks off of those trivia questions (unless they're from season 7, those I don't know as well, because, again, that season was horrible).

It has not gotten to where Jericho is addicted to Gilmore Girls like me, but he watches them with me and enjoys them for the most part. We'd have to rethink this whole arrangement if he didn't support my addiction.


  1. that is so funny. i love gilmore girls too!! I also own all seasons, except for 7.... stupid change in writers.

  2. It's fine if Jericho watches Gilmore Girls with you, but if HE starts answering trivia question, then YOU might want to rethink the whole arrangement! Bwa Ha.

  3. And you totally got the question right on Jeopardy the other day.
