looks just like the end of the day chez UC (without the dog, with a queen sized bed rather than two singles, oh and my hair does not look that jaunty come 11pm...and, mr chick does not sport a moustache)

but apart from that, that's pretty much the scene here too

nightie night, M! (are you retiring early on account of your very early start?!)

I want twin beds! So civilized! Less knees in my back! Everybody get OFF me!

I was fantasizing yesterday that I could get a little hammock suspended right over me or a little shelf jutting out from the wall and somehow teach Nick to sleep there instead of between my knees.

I met a Maltese of exceedingly good manners over the weekend (named Nick, btw), and I would like one of my own now please, female, named Nora. Awwwwwwww.

I have such a Wm. Powell crush. It's so sad really. My husband, as ever, focuses on the dog - Asta. According to him, Asta is the real star of those films. Sigh. He just doesn't get it.

Thanks for sharing that pic. There's just never enough Wm. Powell admiration in the world for me. I'll try to comb through my hard drive and find my own personal fave WP pic in a wee bit...

Oh, How could I be so blind. Of course, its William Powell. Doh!

(I know you didn't go to Purdue but I can't resist an acronym for these goofy things )

Well, I thought you were making a very sly sort of joke that I just did quite "get," kyahgirl! David Niven starred in a rather excrable remake of My Man Godfrey, reprising the role Powell made so famous and memorable. I thought you were going for some sort of punchline that I just wasn't clever enough to catch on to.

What a great picture! You gotta love the twin beds.

twin beds would mean that the two cats would crowd me out even more - the queen bed means that they might end up with DH.

Twin beds! I don't care if it's smaller it's an ENTIRE SPACE JUST FOR ME.

The cat would choose to sleep with Adam. It's been proven in hotels while were traveling - if we get a room with two double beds, Snapper chooses Adam. Oddly, I do not complain of this blatant rebuff.

I just want a king-sized bed with a Kingsdown mattress... DH in the bed is optional ;~D

I'm a *big* and restless sleeper - sometimes the queen size isn't enough for me by myself. I do my best to share nicely when he's here, but have been known to push him all the way to the edge, forcing him to wake me up and ask me to move over. He's probably secretly hoping for separate beds...

It is so interesting to see movies and tv shows from the 40s and 40s, with everyone in his/her virginal bunks! Wonder what future generations will think is funny about current times---right now, I can't think of much that is.

Regarding innocent times - does anyone remember old Morecambe and Wise shows from the 1970s and '80s? Did you get them in the USA? If not, well - two middle-aged comedians, the straight guy and the quirky guy - always had a Christmas show that the whole family would watch - and they were always shown sitting up in a double bed together, or getting in and bickering and then putting out the light. And did ANYONE say anything, or hint anything, or even think anything, apart from that they shared a flat?

I have a very small bed that I should have all to myself, except that, a while ago, the cat decided to share it with me, that is she allows me to use it for a few hours, but tries desperately to occupy the space she usually lies on - in the middle of it. So, in the morning, I end up all scrunched up against the wall. I don't know why I tolerate this: maybe because she sometimes lets me cuddle her before we get up.

This is of course one of my favorite movies. I even had a toy dog that looked just like Astor. As for cats, I have 3 and since I sleep like a star fish they occupy the corners of the bed but have been known to walk across the star fish to get to another corner.

Oh, I love this, look at the glamour. Lying in bed in her peignoir with mink trim, where did all of this go?
I have a single bed, although I'm not quite as glamorous, but I do try. I collect vintage slips to wear in place of pajamas or nightgowns. I need to find a little dog however that will lie at the end of the bed just like this one.
