02:09 pm - Leonard Nimoy is gone
Leonard Nimoy, Actor, Director, and 'Star Trek' Icon, Dies at 83

Not unexpected, given his age and health, but still sad. His iconic role as Spock has played an enormous role in my life, in terms of my stoicism in the face of adversity and sardonic humor, as well as not allowing my emotions to control me. Spock made me feel it was OK to be smart and interested in science and that I didn't need to pretend to be stupid in order to be accepted by others.

01:29 pm - The userpics made me do it . . .
Logged in here for the first time in months. Why? Because my userpic addon was about to expire and I would have lost a buttload of my icons for posts.

And I'm all about the userpics.

So, bill paid! And here I am, once again.

05:50 am - So very, very tired of this
Just got word another old friend has passed away. So tired of this. Really, really tired of this.

Cancer, this time. Last week's friend-loss was from a heart problem.

Shit. Just found out a friend passed away today. She was pretty young too, just a year or two older than me.

01:50 pm - Mourning the passing of a werewolf
Actor Dave Legano, who played Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter films, passed away a few days ago at the age of 50. He was hiking in Death Valley when he apparently died of heat-related causes.

I feel sad -- he was too young and he died alone.

06:12 am - The Reaper loves me
Just found out that an old friend has passed away. Just a few days before, I'd learned another old friend had died. And in a little over a week I'll be attending the memorial service of yet another old friend who is gone.

So tired of this.

I've just learned that a friend of a quarter-century has passed away. I have many memories of her and am sad there will be no more new ones.

02:19 pm - Taking a snowday
Currently snowed in. 10.5" of snow from the storm, and my car is encased in frozen snow, slush and ice from the plows. Not going anywhere, so I'm enjoying kittycat snorgles.

Current temp is 16 degrees F with windchill of 2 degrees F, so even more reason to stay in.

02:32 pm - Back from the not-quite-dead
I haven't used my account much lately. I haven't really felt like writing anything after the constant stream of deaths among my friends and family that lasted for far too long -- 14 within about two years -- plus the disaster that was my personal life circumstances. Instead I retreated to Facebook where I could be light and fluffy and completely insubstantial.

Maybe it's time to come back to LJ and be more substantial.

If you enjoy my posts, thank hrafnkell for reminding me of how much I used to enjoy writing here.
