Farewell Princess

imagePrincess Leia, Carrie Fisher, has passed away after suffering a major heart attack. 😞😞😞

We all heard about the heart attack the other day but, like everyone else, I thought she’d pull through. All the updates were indicating she was on the mend.

Ive got to say that I feel quite choked up by her passing. Like many of you, I’m sure, I grew up with her through the Star Wars Saga. She was my first on screen crush. It kind of feels like a part of my childhood just died.

The Princess Leia figurine was one of the first I bought, or was given.

I also loved her as the obsessive and unhinged ex-wife to John Bellushi in The Blues Brothers.

“I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror…”

      1. Just stumbled across this quote from her which might cheer you up.

        “…George (Lucas) comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes on look at the dress and says, ‘You can’t wear a bra under that dress.’
        So, I say, ‘Okay, I’ll bite. Why?’
        And he says, ‘Because… there’s no underwear in space.’
        I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too! Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn’t see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.
        …So here’s why you cannot wear your brassiere (in space), per George. So, what happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t- so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make a fantastic obit- so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” ~Carrie Fisher

        Apparently we live in a post-truth world now, where our leaders and newscasters can make up whatever they like and expect us to believe it. That being the case a heart-attack is far too mundane for her! I would certainly respect any newsreader that gave her the obituary she wanted!
