Reading and posting on LJ improves my mood. I should remember this. I miss you all, even though I see a lot of you on the Facebook and the Twitters.

Getting out to see people improves my mood. I should remember this. I had a FABULOUS time at the State Fair last night. First I took pictures of farm animals and stuff. Then I watched a set & a half of Martin Zellar. It was actually 3/4 of the Gear Daddies because both Nick & Randy were there. Then [livejournal.com profile] 7thstranger & I walked & chatted as I took more pictures and I ate some cheese on a stick.

Finding out that a friend has died does not improve my mood. [livejournal.com profile] gingerpook lost her battle with cancer this morning. You'll be missed Ginger.

April 1st. April Fool's Day. Should be a day of nothing but fun.

But unfortunately it also means it's now been one year since Joe Murphy left us.
Although I never met the guy in person, I still miss him. His voice & sense of humor were an integral part of the Draco-Vista Studios podcasts.

So everyone, take a minute, and tell the people in your life that you love them.

Then go to the Joe Murphy Memorial Fund site and listen to I Remember Joe: A 2008 Tribute. If you have a few spare bucks please consider donating to help fight leiomyosarcoma.

Joe, I lift my root beer to you, as I listen to Scott Bakula. by Sunspot.

I'm HellZiggy from Minneapolis, and I remember Joe.

The world is less colorful and emptier than it was yesterday. Bob "Roadkill" Aiken died this morning.

From Susan on his Caring Bridge site: "Bob died this morning. He was asleep and then gone. The nurse called me to say he had taken a turn and could go anytime and when I got there he was already gone. They were wonderfully nice to me. The funeral director came and we dressed Bob in his wedding clothes. He has his scuba certificate paperwork and a cigar.

Right now I am not sure of anything. I will update when I have a confirmed date for his wake. I may or may not answer the phone but do leave a message or email.

There is a bright and shiny dragon, green and purple and blue, iridescent and rainbow hued with lots and lots of sliver winging his way to his next assignment.

The world has turned. New beginnings. Cry your soul clean. The circle is complete. Blessed Be."


I didn't know Roadkill very well. I met him for the first time in 2002 when I went to the first OmegaCon in Siren, WI. Almost all of my interactions with him have been at OmegaCon, where he would run the best consuite ever with his wife Susan. He was always fun and charming. He will be missed. God-damn fucking cancer!
