Okay, so when I heard about Alan Rickman this moring, my first instinct was to search for Robin Hood Prince of Thieves on Netflix.  The closest I got was the old Disney animated version which, at the time, made me smile because it's my all-time favorite Disney film.  Hands down.  Closely followed by The Sword in the Stone.

I was just cruising the internet and found this:

I'm sitting at my desk, with tears in my eyes.  I don't know what the hell is wrong with me, but I can't find my happy today.

I'm going to go crawl into a hole now.

I've never met a dog who didn't. :) My in-laws' black lab sure does.

True fact.

I actually gasped when I heard about Rickman this morning. And Robin Hood is the first thing I remember him from. I may have to go home and watch Sense and Sensibility tonight.

*big hugs*

And I'm going home shortly. I'm feeling really whiney, and pushing 12 hours at work today.

Dogs are good like that.

I know - I didn't even know he'd been sick, honestly. And same here. I was in high school, I think, and fell in love with that movie.

Heard that Celine Dion's husband passed away as well, but I think he's been ill for some time now.

*big hugs back*

Ugh - that sucks big time. Did you ever hear back from the temp agency? Go home, take care of yourself, recharge. I have tennis tonight. :/

Got one forward from the agency, hugely over qualified. Boss wants a number of candidates to interview all in one day then make a decision.

I have to hit the grocery store for work today, and rather than going in for 6:30, I'll head in for 7 since that's when the grocery store opens. So very weirdly, I have an extra half hour that I don't know what to do with. Can't go back to sleep, not awake enough to do much else.

HOWEVER! Today is Friday so the shop closes at 4 rather than 5 and I'm leaving on time no matter what! Pick up some home groceries and NAP TILL SUNDAY! ;)

Ugh, good luck finding someone soon. :/

Nice - and I know the feeling. Even just a half an hour is enough to throw you off.

HOORAY FOR FRIDAY!!!! Enjoy your nap, Rip van Winkle. :D

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHH and now I have big plans for Sunday! We're going to that restaurant/theater and seeing Star Wars again for breakfast at 8:30 Sunday. Waffles and Wookies!

OMG, that's so weird! And sad. I totally get why you can't get happy today (and now I'm humming 'Get Happy' by the Partridge family... I'll just crawl back in my old hill now, I think!)

If you had any idea how many people I've heard that from! He was a popular guy in those days.

He was so pretty! ;-) (and I'm going to lunch now so it'll be a while before I answer your other comment!) Yes, I am working hard...

Enjoy your lunch! It's almost 4 PM here so I'll be out the door on my way home by the time you get back. Then, off to tennis with the older child.

Hope the rest of your day is as productive as your morning has been! Hahahaha!

Thanks! Lunch was good - warmed up fish pie from last night's dinner. YUM! (probably stank out the lunch room *evil grin*)

Enjoy tennis and your evening! My afternoon should be pretty good as I have SO MUCH NOT TO DO, and then I'm away for the next two weeks... I'll set up my vacation messages on phone and email, and then there's... um, yeah, just looking busy, I guess! ;-P

YUMMY! Hahaha... This friend's sister I know was pregnant and bitched loudly whenever her coworker made popcorn in the office microwave because it smelled. Two days later, she reheated some kind of seafood dish and when that coworker complained the sister got angry. It was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever seen because um POT? Meet Kettle. LOL

It was actually nice enough to get out and walk while Taylor Tot was practicing, so it was a good night. HOORAY FOR VACATION! Enjoy yourself!

Geeez. So far, 2016 has been way too unkind to intriguing men of a certain age with beautiful voices. Has anyone checked on the surviving members of The Who lately? Pop a thermometer in Paul's mouth, and get him a blanket!

I joke because it all sucks. :|

I'm not a Potter person - for me Rickman was about Broadway and "Love, Actually." Very sad loss, though, whatever one loved him for.

I had to laugh - I saw something last night that said @God: Just FYI, Trump's 69, too. It's wrong, but it was still funny.

But I hear you - if you don't laugh, you'll cry and no one wants that, right? Humor is often the only way to get through things.

As much as I do love my Harry Potter, he'll always be the Sheriff of Nottingham to me. I have discovered that there are a lot of his movies I need to see.
