So Long, Carrie Fisher

Sixty... That's it?

Lots of so longs this year. And that's the sad truth. Anyone who says, "May The Force be with you" may not know what they're talking about. Sigh.

    1. Thanks Sherry. You too :)

      Yes, she died on board a plane. First George Michael (53) on Christmas day and now Carrie Fisher (60).

    2. On board a plane? See? Exactly my point, Blue

    3. No, she got a heart attack on board that plane and obviously couldn't be rushed to the hospital.

  3. There's definitely a disturbance in the Force today. What a beautiful, talented and strong individual she was. Ugh.

    I think the Grim Reaper should take a couple of days off.
    I'm still not over George Michael's death. My all-time-favourite artist.

    The tears are still flowing.

  4. Sad news Blue, too many people crossing to the other side. First, George Michaels and now Carrie. She just released a book in November about her life around the time she made Star Wars. one wonders why so many in the year 2016?

    I hope you have a Happy New Year! I really don't see 2017 as a good year , but I will remain positive

    Peace, light and love always✨

  5. I think Star Snores killed her, to take her out of her retirement and make her travel the world from day to day to promote their silly movie, even stronger hearts couldn't survive that. I was also annoyed by her mother immediately giving statements. The same with George Michael's boyfriend who is giving interviews, I mean who honestly goes to Twitter or Facebook the very day their family member dies???
    We also lost today that writer Richard Adams who wrote Watership Down

  6. I'm less a Star Wars fan and more of a Carrie Fisher fan. How sad; what a shock.

    1. I knew she wasn't healthy, but I sure didn't see this one coming.

  7. Hey Blue,

    She was on the Graham Norton show over here, only last week. Then she took that flight back from London to LA.

    Another passing of a popular, loved person. This has been quite the year.

    All the best to you, Blue, for a better 2017. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, good sir.

    1. Yes, quite the year.

      No need to thank me, Gary, never scary, always flairy. You're one of the good guys.

  8. So upset over this. She was one of my first childhood heroes. Or at least I should say Princess Leia was. I had a feeling things were not good when the only updates yesterday were the vague "she's stable." May the force be with her always.

    1. Yes, such a damn shame and she was out of luck, too. It's hard to survive when you're on a plane.

  10. She had so many fans who loved her, that's for sure. Such a sad loss.

  11. What a kick in the nuts 2016 has been. Too many lives lost way too soon :(

    1. A kick in the nuts followed by another kick in the nuts and another one just for the frigging fun of it.

  12. We saw Rogue One Christmas Day. It was sad seeing that "cameo" of Carrie Fischer and realizing she was in the hospital with not a very good prognosis. She was a year older than me. I loved her portrayal in the previous Star Wars movie before this. I heard people faulted her because she was a "little plump" around the edges, but I liked that she was portrayed like that. It had been over 30 years since the first movies came out. Age and experience does make us a bit "plump." She looked like the majority of us aging in our 50s. We had lived a life and it was starting to show. She will be missed. I feel bad for her mom having to bury her child, that's every parent's worse nightmare.

    1. Nicely put, betty. Plump... Who gives a flyinf you-know-what about plump? I hope those idiots will end up plump themselves. Love is all around but so is stupid. Yes, that would be a parent's worse nightmare.

    6. Yeah, those kids. Not many people remember but I like that little

  14. Sad indeed and she wasn't that old. But health woes sure can catch up to one and bite them in the rump. Plus all the stress of traveling and filming and such can take its toll.

  15. Have just heard Carrie Fisher's mother, Debbie Reynolds, has just been rushed into hospital for a suspected stroke. Ugh. That poor bloody family.

  16. Harambe, Severus Snape, the United States of America, and now Princess Leia. 2016 was fucking brutal

    1. how very strange for her to die a day after her daughter! Imagine their family now! My grandfather died a few days after my grandmother, and the other two grandparents died a few months later after them as well, but they were all old.

    2. Dezz... I need a drink. Better make that a double.

    3. Forgot to say that my father did not outlive his parents much either, since he died as well barely two years later.

    4. All the while you're still going strong. Well, the know what I mean.

  18. So sad for the family to lose them both like that, but there must be at least a little comfort for them in knowing that they are together and aren't having to navigate what lies beyond alone. RIP to them both.

  19. So long Carrie
    Yes, a great personality

  20. After my week of vay-cay, I am back to reading blogs. Sorry for weighing in so late. There were a lot of loss in 2016 but this one was especially sad with mother and daughter passing a day apart. That would be horrible for family members. Sixty years old seems very young to me these days.

    Hope your 2017 is off to a great start.
