I Want to Live in Stars Hollow

Stars Hollow signThe WordPress Post-a-Day topic for August 30 was:

If you could be part of any fictional universe, what would it be? And why? (For example Star Wars, Mad Men, Hamlet, etc.)

Rules: You can visit for as long or short as you like.

No, I do not want to live in the Twilight universe and be a sparkly vampire. I want to live in Stars Hollow.

Stars Hollow is the fictional Connecticut town that is home to the Gilmore Girls. It is awesome.

Stars Hollow is close enough to a major city (Hartford) that you’re not really in the boonies. It’s a town you can walk around. Everyone knows everyone else. There are town meetings that everyone actually attends. There are town dances, town book sales, town picnics, and lots of town traditions.

Sure, you’d have to put up with Taylor and Kirk, but you’d also have Luke, Miss Patty, and Babette and Murray. I’d probably stay away from Mrs. Kim’s antique shop but weekends at the Dragonfly Inn could be pretty darn relaxing. And you’d never need to worry about a baby-sitter with so many wholesome high school kids around.

Yes, I want to be a part of that kind of community. I want to live in Stars Hollow.
