Can We Rest, Now?

Delicate Butterfly
On Friday, June 20th, the sweetest, warmest, most tender-hearted young woman I know lost her battle with ovarian cancer. This fucking disease cut short her life at the age of thirty-four. She leaves behind grieving parents, siblings, god-children, and scores of friends.

We'll miss you Nicole. You'll always be in our hearts.




Gone too soon, rest in peace, sweetheart.

AAARGH! The Dreaded Gym Class Earworm!!

Endora Oh Yay
There's a commercial out currently for the Apple iPhone 5s that gives me chills every time the music track kicks in. Being the kind, generous person that I am, I humbly offer to share the buggering earworm with you:







I hated gym class with the passion of a million fiery suns (not to mention the one piece gymsuits that had to be ironed or they marked you unprepared). Just hearing this song made me break out in sweat and hives. It was torture - using the voice of the man I adored as Professor Harold Hill to show just how clumsy and uncoordinated I was. Gym class, meet Clockwork Orange.

Thank goodness I can watch the musical but Go You Chicken Fat, Go still makes me that little bit nauseous. **shudders** Any fellow sympathizers out there who suffered as I did?

A Surprise Bit of Happiness for a Change

Trek Uhura Hot Damn
My elder son, the one I live with, sent me a little prezzie from Amazon.com today. "Because it's Tuesday," he said.



I happily add it (All ten movies) to the shelf to sit next to the Buffy set, and Beauty and the Beast set he's also bought for me, and the Angel set I bought for myself. I do believe I have a re-watch coming up soon.

Ah, my first fandom, my first character crush (Spock, of course) and my first slash OTP (Kirk/Spock).

It's nice to post something pleasant. I hope this trend continues. *smiles*

Hugs, Hugs, Hugs!

Buffy Love Letters
Thank you so much, oh anonymous sweetheart for my wonderful, much needed hug. You have no idea how much that means to me right now. **smooches**

I have the official title of the world's worst chronicle keeper ever! Best to try and get this out before the year ends.

Today, I'm planning to spend time with family. A bunch of hours with the grandchildren are good for the soul, I always say. Even if I don't keep in touch as much as I want to, I'm always thinking of my LJ friends/family and checking out all you better posters daily.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, or just some cool family time. Peace, loves.

... Especially since nobody is guaranteed a future.

Anyway, sorry I've fallen off the map since my lovely diagnosis. I didn't mean to, but...

And that's the way it is as of today.
