Appreciating a local reference

One of my favourite lazy Saturday past-times is watching the Gilmore Girls omnibus on E4. I love it, in all its cheesy, chick-flick glory.

Today I was happy ensconsed in pjs and hoodie, painting my nails and eating breakfast (always the multi-tasker), when my ears pricked up at a reference to Gloucestershire (my favourite kind of shire).

Rory’s boyfriend Logan was just back from a summer tour of Europe and had broken his finger whilst participating in the ‘Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling Festival’.

Of course, Gloucestershire was pronounced “Gla-owcestershire” and the cheese-rolling actually takes place in May, not August…but still, not often the shire gets referenced in popular culture.
