BigBossLady gave me the option to bail when she asked if I was getting a migraine, and I explained that, no, an email to a list of my friends had gotten me an autoreply set up by the parents of a friend who died yesterday that she is "permanently out of her office." It's to the point, and so fitting of Abby in its way, but that's what finally made me cry.

I didn't bail, because the last thing I need as we run up to year-end is more backlog, but concentration is kinda in and out today. Have decided not to do n.u.f.a.n.'s "7 Plays in 7 Days," and still need to catch up on various posts, including my comment on the Abby memorial post. But also the promised tales of Hollywood Midwest, and Chicago TARDIS, and a review of WildClaw's Dreams in the Witch House even though I think it's already closed, and probably some other stuff I've forgotten.

But right now there is monthly birthday cake, and then another hour and a half of work. {{{{ hugs }}}} to all.

I didn't know Abby. I'm very sorry for her family and friends. Way. Too. Young.

Thanks. We had her far longer than we were "supposed" to, but we're selfish that way. *crooked g*

>"Hearing:The Muppets - "Time in a Bottle" *snif*"

Abby loves the Muppets. Once, she brought a set of Muppets DVDs to my place, and we ate pizza, and there was this one John Denver episode, and this other Mark Hamill episode... and I never took John Denver very seriously, but she did.

She made a Farscape vid to TiaB, and made a very specific choice to use the Muppets version rather than the original. I kind of assumed it was just because she loved the Muppets, and/or her quirky sense of vidding, but when it was done it made perfect sense with when the voices handed off, etc.

I grew up around my mom's love of John Denver, so I always took him (reasonably) seriously. I didn't realize he had such a goofy image until I was in middle school.

I also didn't know Abby, but I see that she was important to many people I care about and it sounds like it's my loss to have never known her.

I am so, so sorry for you and all who she was important to. Let me know if there is anything I can do, especially giving a virtual hug.

For me it was the "our beloved Abby"...and trying to say that aloud.

What a perfect note from her folks, though. So VERY her.

I'm so sorry about Abby. :( {{{hugs}}}

I'm so sorry for your loss. :C

Sorry to hear about your friend :o(

Time in a Bottle is a beautiful song and I love the muppet version (even though it makes me cry because it sounds so heartfelt).
