How's it going my gumdrops? How was your YuleChristmaHanukkah? Hanukkah's still being celebrated (if memory serves me right), along with Christmas. Don't forget that Orthodox Christians don't celebrate Christmas Day, until January 7th.
The Orthodox Christians are somewhat lucky in that regard. All their presents will be on clearance. So, you may be wondering, "Anna, what did you get for Christmas?"
Shoes, candy, clothes, jewelry, a snow suit and rainboots like I wanted for having to shovel up all our snow, 4 pairs of ear buds and head phones, an abstract art painting, which was custom made by a long-time college friend of nearly 15 years, glycerin bar soaps, another cordless mouse for my other laptop, and another winter coat for this Christmas.
Hopefully, you were able to enjoy the holidays despite all the tragedies in the news. Lately, I dread turning on my TV and laptops. It feels like there is a celebrity death toll almost everyday.
This most definitely applies to legendary actors, actresses, and talented music icons.
I am sure many of you will probably roll your eyes at me for continuously mentioning Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland. Even though he died last December, I believe his demise caused a domino effect of legendary entertainers (mostly iconic musicians) dying, throughout this year.
The death of Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister on December 28, 2015 was a brutal segue into this year, regarding music icons. At the very beginning of 2016, we all lost David Bowie, who was also a major musical influence to the late Scott Weiland and many others.
Very much like Lemmy Kilmister died 4 days after his birthday from Prostate Cancer, Congestive Heart Failure, and Cardiac Arrhythmia, David Bowie privately died from Liver Cancer 2 days after his birthday.
Everyone knows that people die everyday by the seconds. However, I have NEVER in all my life ever heard about so many LEGENDARY entertainers dropping like flies by the nano second the way they have in 2016.
2016 has been a really cruel and shitty year for so many of us, that we can't wait for it to be over. Without a doubt, 2016 EXCEEDED my expectations of being a horrible year. So many lives have been taken, during this year, that lately I have even cried about it.
Whether it was just the average man, woman, child, or an iconic celebrity, loved ones have been in mourning. All these deaths will surely make grief counselors and funeral homes richer, if not already.
Let's all hope and pray that we can survive 2017 without there being so many deaths in general. I was going to publish another Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blog to end this year, but have changed my mind. These last 2 weeks have been extremely exhausting.
If I have enough time and energy, I intend to publish more blogs at the start of 2017. With that being said, RIP George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, and to all those who lost their lives in 2016! I wish you all a very happy and more prosperous new year!
