He may not have been a celebrity of any kind, but my dad's dad passed away in the morning of Christmas day, the day after his 85th birthday.

This leaves me with no surviving grandparents. I guess it's official, my childhood is now over.

Yeah. The more I saw of her in New Film Promo and read, the cooler she seemed. Previous to that the nearest I'd been was a London comic con where out of everyone she'd got a full enclosure of boards.

She was at the comic expo here in Sept. We managed to catch about 5 mins of her panel before the little one grew impatient, that 5 minutes was gold though. She was very funny. I will miss her.

Wow, this dying thing is bullshit, isn't it.

And, mother ****er. I just found out Richard Adams died on Christmas Eve, too. Less surprising, as he was in his 90's, but still.

Shitty.

Damnit 2016, haven't you caused enough trouble? Stop killing celebrities!

Meanwhile, Time is hiding in the crowd, pointing a finger at 2016 while giving heavy side-eye.

I've no doubt people are aware... this is just one of those sentences that people seem to like and say or write a lot, and it bores me to the point of pet peeve.

The worst part is that I don't think 2017 is gonna be much better. We're all getting older so all our childhood heroes are gonna start dropping like flies, and '16 is only the start.

This has reminded me I was once in the same room as Carrie Fisher, about twenty feet away from her. Didn't see her though as there was a massive barrier around her and Billy Dee Williams so the eyes of non-paying plebs would not rest upon them. It was the same day as my William Shatner Experience IIRC.

I did see Billy Dee Williams Ear through a gap in the barrier though.

I've also been reminded my mother is in a WHAM video. See if you can spot her:

Former Disgraced Fox News CEO Roger Ailes as well. Can't say I'm not sad to see him dead however.
