First approach

LORELAI: God that’s nice.

LUKE: Yep.

LORELAI: The whole ‘first date, beginning of the relationship’ glow - everything is new and exciting.

LUKE: Every joke is hilarious.

LORELAI: Every little touch is incredible [touching Luke’s arm]

LUKE: Mm-hm.

LORELAI: God that’s a good feeling.

LUKE: It is at that.

LORELAI: I miss that.

LUKE: You’ll have it again.

LORELAI: Mmm…I guess.

[Mrs Kim sees Lorelai through the window]

LUKE: You know, maybe sometime we could…

All of the SO CLOSE! moments these two had… *sigh*

  • me: You arrived, and not a moment too soon! I was about to stab myself!
  • husband: Well, don't let me stop you.

Okay. I am officially freaked out. There’s a picture of Milo Ventimiglia that I just scrolled past…and…it bears an unmistakable resemblance to my grandfather…my grandfather who is no longer alive…and it’s just…it’s just weird. It’s really, really weird. And I can’t help but be reminded about how grandma used to talk about the girls that would come up and flirt with him, even though she was standing right there, and he was completely oblivious. She said there were even those who would ask to have their picture taken with him, like…out of the blue…just because they thought he was that handsome. And, I remember staring at the pictures when I was a kid and trying to imagine him that age, all not-in-black-and-white and cute enough to get that kind of attention. And…suddenly, looking at a picture of my favorite modern celebrity…I can finally see it. Even though it’s kind of a goofy picture. But, I guess that’s why I can see it. My grandpa always played the clown with us kids. I mean, unless there was some reason to be serious. He always made crazy faces and talked in funny voices and… …and I look at this picture, and I see my grandpa.

So strange.

Dolls have given us an unrealistic image of women.

For example, I found out Russian women do not contain smaller Russian women inside them.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters

we need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay

He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”

"The Galaxy, which had been enjoying a period of unusual peace and prosperity at the time, reeled like a man getting mugged in a meadow.”

"it was a deep, hollow malevolent voice which sounded like molten tar glurping out of a drum with evil on its mind.”

"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”

"… a large and voluminous creature who looked like someone losing a fight with a pink duvet …”

"He screwed up his face and then dropped his head forward, shaking it like someone trying to shake a coin out of a money box.”

"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”

"He leapt to his feet like an author hearing the phone ring”

"he started to stalk forward slowly and stealthily wearing a puzzled frown of concentration, like a leopard that’s not sure whether it’s just seen a half-empty tin of cat food half a mile away across a hot and dusty plain.”

"it looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”

"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”

I’m diabetic. I have celiac disease. I also have an anaphylactic reaction to almonds.

AND. I. WANT. CAKE. I want a white, fluffy, glutinous cake with thick, rich, sugary, white frosting, maraschino cherries, and slivered almonds!!!

I just don’t wanna die…

“The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues.”
