For a lot of people, the musical Hamilton will be a moment in pop culture history they will never forget.  That’s not so much the case for Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

Instead, the Tony-winning actor and playwright spent a good amount of time on Twitter today telling the world of the various events that he is still processing and will never forget.

Just when you thought Lin-Manuel Miranda couldn’t get more lovable.

The Hamilton creator tweeted Thursday that he’s watching Gilmore Girls — yeah, just like all of us.

But Miranda, who has been busy juggling projects including the Hamilton Mixtape and Moana, is still just on season one. 

Don’t worry, so far he thinks “it is AWESOME.”

But he’s not on any team yet.

1) Okay.
So I’m watching my first episode of Gilmore Girls ever.
*dodges garbage*
I MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME AROUND!
(it is AWESOME)
