Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Whoa

I am COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT by this: Heath Ledger's dead? At 28?!?!

There has been an email flurry for the past five minutes between my sisters and I about this, and my mom just sent me a text message asking if I'd heard. That sentence, incidentally, should tell you all kinds of things about my family.

But ... wow. Just, wow.

Folks... You heard it here first.

Swish, you really should be on Nightline or something. I'm going to go check in on CNN.

And found at Mary Kate Olsen's apartment? Odd.

Holy Crap! Not exactly what I was expecting to see.

28, is way too young to go.

Looks like it may have been drugs, go figure right?

So sad.

OK, my thing is, I knew he had been going out a lot, but I didn't know he was into drugs.

(I love that I say that like he lives next door to me or something.)

But still! So sad.

Just goes to show that being a celebrity isn't always happy times.

As for my drug comment before, it looks like they are calling it a possible suicide or accidental overdose.

What a shame.

It must be hard to live a life where you are not allowed to have problems.

It's so shocking and sad at the same time. I don't even know how to comprehend it. Absolutely speechless

I was in the car on the way to a basketball game and heard the news. mIt's so sad. Here, I'm expecting it to be BritBrit, and it's Heath.

He really was so talented.

Mamas...keep your babies outta Hollywood!

Yeah. Wow is right. I was totally stunned when I saw that this afternoon. Tragic.

I was SHOCKED! Husband said that he had a drug problem and that was why his relationships all tanked. I have no idea (I had no idea hubby was so plugged in, either).

It makes you wonder what the heck was going on in his life? Was it drugs? Suicide? WHAT??? Only 28 . . . sad, sad, sad.

I just read that as well. So sad, especially leaving his 2 year old behind.

Really sad. Reminds me of River Phoenix. Tragic. Is weird, but when something like this happens, my urge is always to turn the clock back one day. Just one day, could we please?

But I love that your mom was texting you on this. She rocks.

No matter what the actual story is (and tons of stories are flying around now), it's sad. Really sad. I feel for Michelle Williams and their daughter.

sad times....

 
At 7:46 PM, Blogger Eileen said...

I was shocked, so shocked. Just completely sad. He has a little 3 year old girl too. I wish we could turn back time, especially when things like this happen. So young, so gifted. Makes no sense. I hope he rests in peace.
Love.
