Oh How I’ve Missed Lorelai

I remember randomly choosing Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham alongside Anna Kenrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody when I was looking for audiobooks for my commute to work. Our restaurant was closed for a week and I got to work on a different branch which was a half-an-hour drive each way.

Talking As Fast As I Can is about how she got started on her career. From odd jobs, to side gigs, memorable auditions, and relationships formed on and off set.

Since I’ve never watched Parenthood, the parts that hit me hard were when she talked about her time in Gilmore Girls. I LOVE GILMORE GIRLS. I love Lorelai and Rory’s mother-and-daughter relationship that I hoped to have the same kind of relationship with my daughter, if and when I am blessed with one.

Closer to the end of the audio, she rounded off her book with her experience on Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. From the uncertainty of the mini movies, to finally filming, to reminiscing Edward Herrmann, to finally knowing what the four final words were. Her reading of her journal entries while filming added a touch of nostalgia as I was getting it from her point of view, in addition to my flashbacks of watching the Year In The Life when it came out.

Listening to Graham’s audiobook is akin to listening to Lorelai do a monologue. There are times where she slows down when she talks, but most of the time it’s her signature Lorelai speed and I enjoyed it very much.
