The last of the ramblings for now

Well as expected my cousin lost his battle against the cancer. He passed away on the 26th with all his immediate family around him. I last went to see him the Thursday before and he'd been in a coma for about 6 days by that point so I guess it was a blessing in a lot of ways when it finally happened.

I'm well used to the numbness that follows loss like this but apart from sadness I'm feeling grateful that when he went he won't have known too much about it. My take on it is that if you can slip away peacefully in your sleep then that's got to be pretty much the best way to go.

His funeral is on Monday and me, my better half and my brother are all going. I hope that his family can behave themselves - long story but this last leg of his illness has caused all kinds of hell to break loose - and that it's as cheerful a send off as it can be. I know he would want it to be that way.

Rest in peace, D. I wish we'd never lost contact like we did but I hope that I made it up to you a little bit in the last few weeks. Sleep well, fly safe and find peace x

Personal Stuff

I guess I just need to get this off my chest somewhere and here seems as good a place as any.

My cousin has been fighting a brain tumour for quite some time, years in fact. I haven't been told the ins and outs of the latest developments with his problem but it's bad. To cut a long story short he's been moved into a palliative care unit and hasn't got long left.

beware - sadness on an epic scale followsCollapse )


Just read this and its so true. Borrowed from tumblr which borrowed it from LJ in the first place :)

"Fandom is focus. Fandom is obsession. Fandom is insatiable consumption. Fandom is sitting for hours in front of a TV screen a movie screen a computer screen with a comic book a novel on your lap. Fandom is eyestrain and carpal tunnel syndrome and not enough exercise and staying up way, way past your bedtime.

This reminds me so many days spent fic writing. I miss all of you and the crazy fun we had writing all of the things <3

Meme time

Meme stolen from the lovely sarisynn :) (Hers were much more profound than mine which aren't going to inspire anyone to have a go!!

Put your ipod on shuffle and write the first line of the next ten songs. When you're done, you have a poem. Let's see what I can do.

The Rock really needs to GTFO, end of. Nothing about the Rock/Cena 'feud' could ever compare to this.
