10-minute post: Bye bye, Snape TT_TT

Alan Rickman, Harry Potter and Die Hard actor, dies aged 69 – BBC News


First Ziggy Stardust, now Snape. Both at 69. Damn you, cancer!

I have never been able to plan my life. I just lurch from indecision to indecision.
Alan Rickman

Seemed like a good way to live.

He made me so sad in Love Actually when he cheated on Emma Thompson, but even so, his failing was so unerringly human, and you knew he regretted his indiscretion when he realised how much he’d broken her trust.

RIP, Snape. Thank you for everything.

That’s 23 drama serials just from the K-canon.  With Candy Crush, no wonder so little has been accomplished…

(And I’m ashamed to report that the one book a month has failed spectacularly too.  Have only managed to read bits of Neil Gaiman’s Trigger Warning.)


20 Surprisingly Profound Quotes From Children’s Books. I Grew Up On #9.


2. “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

(Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends)

4. “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

( J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone)
