Tears On My Pillow

I am chalking it up to hormones. That is the only rational explanation for my sudden and inexplicable sappiness lately. I don't consider myself an overly emotional person, but television shows have just been getting to me and I have been sobbing like a little girl at the drop off of a hat.

But, you know, not really. I think the things that I have been crying at have been genuinely moving and it's not like I have a heart of stone. So maybe it's not all me. Maybe I have just been watching some hard-core moving stuff lately. So I am going to stand by my crying.

Let's see:

First there was the latest episode of Battlestar Galactica last Friday. When Roslin told Adama that she loved him....waterworks, y'all. And he had perhaps the best response to someone saying, "I love you" ever....."About time."

Then, there was Gilmore Girls. I have been slowly making my way through all of Gilmore Girls, and when Luke and Lorelai FINALLY hooked up at the end of Season 4, I was psyched. AND THEN. Middle of Season 5 hit and shit went down. So when Lorelai tearfully called Luke and asked him to come over because he was her best friend and she needed her best friend...here come the tears again.

"Hey, Luke, it's me. I know I'm not supposed to be calling, but I am not doing really great right now, and… I was just wondering if, do you remember in 'The Way We Were', how Katie and Hubbell broke up...and she called him and asked him if he would come over and sit with her because he was her best friend and she needed her best friend, and he did."

Finally, we get to Doctor Who. I suppose rewatching Doomsday was not the best idea when I knew I was so emotionally fragile, but it still happened. Sigh.

Rose: I.... I love you.
The Doctor: Quite right too. And I suppose, if it's my last chance to say it: Rose Tyler...

Margaret: *cries*

Here's hoping for a less nerve-racking television experience next week!!

Yeah, those shows and those episodes would definitely do it! By the way.... I hate you for getting me hooked on Gilmore Girls again because the only episodes I have to watch or the Season 1 eps on ABC Family and I wanted to keep watching the Season 5 eps we saw while visiting you a couple weeks ago!!! :)

Speaking of BSG... make sure you check out TVGuide.com with some sad news about the 2nd half of Season 4.
