On Tuesday, one of my favourite TV shows - Gilmore Girls - began it's 6th Season after a winter break. Anyway, one of it's formidable characters (I would not want to meet her in a dark alley, but I'd love her on my side in one), Paris Gellar, had these words to say as she welcomed staff into the Yale Daily News:
"Please remember that I'm your editor. I'm not your mother or your hugger. If you need some love, get a hooker. If you're having a bad day, find a ledge or a way to deal. My door is not open to you - ever." - Paris from Gilmore Girls (Season 6, ep.11)
I laughed out loud. It is such a Paris thing to say. I'm amazed at the stuff she says and gets away with. But then no one would really argue back with her. I don't think I want to be her exactly, but once in a while don't you feel like just shutting people up and saying "Enough! I have my own shit going on!" Erm, ok. That's it. I think my repressed personality is trying to get free.
