Thanksgiving got me thinking about family. And family got me thinking about moms. And moms got me thinking about Lauren Graham. Of course, this is silly since while Lauren is probably most famous for playing the simultaneously coolest and fastest-talking mom in TV history, she herself is not a mom and therefore should not be considered that acronym that rhymes with “filth.” But, hey, that's how my mind works and who can blame me for wanting to think about Lauren Graham?
Lauren is the girl you wished lived next door. She is accessible, yet totally not. It's that dream of accessibility that tantalizes us so. And then there's that promise of mischief. Her eyes have that proverbial twinkle, her grin curls slyly toward Cheshire. When you couple both those with her impeccable delivery of the perfectly placed quip the result is beyond irresistible. In short, she is the kind of girl you can't decide whether you want more as your best friend or your girlfriend. Though, in the end, the only acceptable answer is both. Happy weekend, all.
