I love you and I want you to be happy

Play this in a loop all day:

Got a letter from the state. Have to call them and give them proper proof of my income and then we’ll talk about health care.

Bonus points: an entirely-too optimistic article from The Phoenix on the Gilmore Girls’ Season 6 premiere. I was watching Normal Adolescent Behavior the other day and thinking that if, perchance, an actress like Amber Tamblyn was playing Rory (and lord knows she probably tried out, I would think), despite the show’s faulty writing of the last couple of seasons, it may have sustained a little bit more soul.  Alexis Bledel’s snarly “I don’t care” attitude worked nicely with early smart-girl Rory, but as her character grew and failed and did stupid things, Bledel’s shoddy acting only made you hate the character more, which meant that there was more writing where characters would say, “Oh Rory, you’re so great, you hang the moon!”

From what I’ve read of Amber Tamblyn, she’s a very smart woman who exudes intelligence on-screen.  I think she could’ve done something interesting with floundering drop-out newspaper editor Rory.  Normal Adolescent Behavior, by the way, is a really interesting failure of a film.
