Gilmore Girls Countdown: Lane

Lane's coffee mug

The Tumultuous Life of Lane Kim: tales of an overbearing mother, an unseen father, and the boys in the band. Since her days as a Stars Hollow marching band geek, Lane always wanted more out of life than to just be set up with a boy from her mother's church. While Lane's mom had her radio tuned in to religious stations, Lane was always marching (and rocking) to the beat of her own drum. Now, all grown up and the mother of twins, I'm sure Lane still likes to rock out every now and then. When she's not chasing the twins around the house or dreaming of the days with her old band, Lane Kim will need some good books and music and I have a few suggestions for her.

Gilmore Girls Countdown: Michel

Michel's coffee mug

Michel Gerard is everyone’s favorite Frenchman at the Dragonfly Inn.  His sarcasm and general grumpiness are endearing qualities that we have come to love over the years.  Stars Hollow would not be the same without him.
