#cutest dog ever #as time goes by #i love as time goes by #judi dench superfandom #dog love #dogs are the best
My favorite episode from “As Time Goes By” is Animal Magnetisms because
IT’S SO CUTE I COULD DIE
THE WAY IT KEPT FOLLOWING LIONEL AND THE WOMEN ALL DOTING OVER IT AWWWW
I JUST WANTED TO HUG IT THE WHOLE TIME, I WISH THE FAMILY KEPT THE DOG WAAAH.
I SO AGREE WITH YOU. THEY SHOULD’VE KEPT THAT CUTIE, OR AT LEAST HAVE THE OWNER BRING HIM AROUND FOR A VISIT EVERY OTHER EPISODE.
BTW, that episode was the perfect storm of cute doggie + Jean and Lionel awesomeness + general “As Time Goes By” perfection. Awww, and look at Sandy and Judy cooing over puppy! It’s a televisual blankie!

“I have said that Texas is a state of mind, but I think it is more than that. It is a mystique closely approximating a religion. And this is true to the extent that people either passionately love Texas or passionately hate it and, as in other religions, few people dare to inspect it for fear of losing their bearings in mystery or paradox.”
— John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley
Ooh, gotta remember to put “Texan” down under my religion when filling out my next census.

“Nik was always pretty good-looking, but he hadn’t found his look quite yet—he was still in the developmental stages. He was on the verge of good-looking.”
— Dana Spiotta, Stone Arabia
Excellent use of The Facts of Life.
Amen. Also, I love how “The Facts of Life” was one of MY shows back when I was a little kid, I really enjoyed his character in the later seasons of the show (back when the girls owned the bakery/novelty shop), and I continually get a major thrill knowing he became who he is today. It’s similar to when I was a little kid watching “The Voyage of the Mimi” and wanting badly for C.J. Granville to be my best friend, then realizing now who he is today.
The ’80s = the best time to be anywhere from about 6 - 9.

How I wish Chaz Bono could see this, print it out, and frame it up on a wall.

“But I believed in starting over. There was finally, I knew, only rupture and hurt and falling short between all persons, but, Shirley, the best revenge was to turn your life into a small gathering of miracles.”
—Lorrie Moore, Anagrams
Another reblog because this is perfection. And Lorrie Moore + Adele = no better a random combination has existed ever before in this world.

(FYI, I’m basing this “zing” on what I’ve heard in passing. I am grateful to have never wasted one millisecond on actually watching that trash.)

… ouch?!?! (i.e. I hate to admit this but this is more true than any of us would probably like to consider.)
