My last two months:

  • Dad died

  • Needed to buy a new car pronto speedy quick

  • Biopsy (thankfully a false alarm)

  • Still dealing with Dad's estate

I haven't been posting much on Tumblr, either, just reblogging things so that people would feel like I was still alive.  I'm not sure it has worked.

Mostly right now I just want to rave about Star Wars: Rebels.  Maybe I will.  Every 10 years or so the Star Wars Feels resurface and I feel the desire to impose my Deep Star Wars Thoughts on my friends.

Thank you. At this point it occupies that weird niche where I feel like it's in the past now, and yet it keeps sneaking up to ambush me.

It always will. Time will be your friend here. You will learn how to give it some room so it is not so consuming.

Mental hug on your dad. And I understand about it ambushing you - my dad died back in 1986, but it was on Halloween, so every year, I get a reminder - especially now, when Tumblr goes Halloween nuts. (I mean - my parents were divorced at the time, so I didn't know him as much as I wanted to, but I still miss him - and I was 12 at the time.) This year, I finally blocked the Halloween tag.

Let me know if there's anything I can do.

Hugs back!

I'm okay. Thinking of him makes me sad and happy at the same time. My parents separated when I was 4, and he wasn't in my life much till I was 12 or so (I don't think he really knew what to do with little kids, and he was pretty messed up for the first part of my life anyway--which is why Mom left him in the first place). But I'm glad I got to know him.

Understood. And thanks for realizing that my post wasn't an attempt of 'my life is worst' bingo, but more of a trying to show you I can relate. I worried after I posted it that it came across as one of those, "But what about ME?" posts you see every once in a while.

Alas, it's a cliche for a reason: time heals all wounds, and you just have to 'just keep swimming' for now.

Here - have Tom Hiddleston doing an impression of Robert De Niro - TO Robert De Niro.

Thank you! I wish you could have met him. I think you would've liked him. He was the weirdest, most brilliant person I've ever known.

I'm so sorry about your father. Mine died years ago but I still feel the loss very keenly at times. But huzzah for the false alarm. That is was false not that you had to go through it. I had one of those with a PAP smear this summer and it wasn't fun being on tender-hooks at all. I hope things smooth out for you now. Just concentrate on Star Wars nirvana!

Yeah. I lost my mom a few years back, so I know the deal. You never entirely get over missing the people you love--but that's okay. It's worth it for having had the chance to know them, and maybe it's even kind of a reminder of how much they mattered to you.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad, and about life being bitchy with you. *hugs and offers tea*

Star Wars Rebels is awesome, and it will get even better because Sarah Michelle Gellar will play a Sith Inquisitor this season. So yay!

Oh my goodness. I know how bad that all goes. I lost an aunt, and I just had to deal with a biopsy and tumor this past year, too. (hugs tightly) Glad you're doing all right after all that has happened!

Hi! Yeah, I keep vanishing. XD Things are going well. The latest update: I have bought a house! September is move-in month. Also we may be acquiring another parrot this weekend! We are looking at rehoming a cute little conure from a family who can't keep him.

Glad things are well! Congrats on the house, and I hope the move goes smoothly. Also, aw, another parrot! Post pictures if you do get it?

Over here things are a bit stressful, partly because I'm doing too many things at once and partly because I've been ill a lot this summer. But I'm trying to get myself back into something approaching a normal schedule now.
