5. Directing Work
6. My Words
I know he died in 2008, but I just started this blog, and he was one of my favorite actors, and I wanted to do a blog on him. If you don't like Heath, and don't admire his work, I suggest that you don't read this post, because it is going to be entirely about him! Thanks.
Heathcliff Andrew Ledger was born on April 4, 1979 in Perth, Western Australia, Australia to Kim Ledger(yes, that is a man.) and Sally Ramshaw. His sister was Kate Ledger, and half-sisters Olivia Ledger and Ashleigh Bell. He was an avid chess player, winning the Western Australia junior chess championship when he was 10. Ledger dated actress Heather Graham for several months in 2000 to 2001,and he had a serious long-term relationship with Naomi Watts. In the summer of 2004, he met and began dating actress Michelle Williams and their daughter, Matilda Rose, was born on 28 October 2005 in New York City.
Heath and Matilda
It was evident that she was the apple of his eye, and his whole life
"It's exhausting, but its a pleasure waking up to your daughter."
Matilda Rose's godparents are--Jake Gyllenhaal and Busy Philipps.
He and Michelle seperated in late 2007.
After his departure from this world, Michelle and others later stated in an interview
"'we all caught colds because we were shooting outside on horrible, damp nights. But Heath's went on and I don't think he dealt with it immediately with the antibiotics.... [sic] I think what he did have was the walking pneumonia' [...] On top of that, 'He was saying all the time, "dammit, I can't sleep"...[sic] and he was taking all these pills [to help him] [sic].' "
Michelle Williams "also confirmed reports the actor had experienced trouble sleeping. "For as long as I'd known him, he had bouts with insomnia. He had too much energy. His mind was turning, turning turning — always turning."
2008, 22 January----------
At 2:45pm, he was found unconscious in his bed by his masseuse and housekeeper in his 4th floor loft- apartment apartment at 421 Broome Street in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. At 3:26, his masseuse called Ms. Mary Kate Olsen, his close friend.
3:33, the EMT arrived, and 3 minutes later, Heath was pronounced dead and removed from the apartment.
Two weeks later, the autopsy came back in the results of an accidental overdose of the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine". In other words, The medications found in the toxicological analysis are commonly prescribed in the United States for insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, and/or common cold symptoms.
On 1 February 2008, in her first public statement after Ledger's death, Michelle Williams expressed her heartbreak and described Ledger's spirit as surviving in their daughter.
After attending private memorial ceremonies in Los Angeles, Ledger's family members returned with his body to Perth.
On 9 February 2008, a memorial service attended by several hundred invited guests was held at Penrhos College, garnering considerable press attention; afterward Ledger's body was cremated at Fremantle Cemetery, followed by a private service attended by only 10 closest family members, with his ashes to be interred later in a family plot at Karrakatta Cemetery, next to two of his grandparents. Later that night, his family and friends gathered for a wake on Cottesloe Beach.
I am sorry, I wish it was I who had typed all of that.

My Words on Heath:::::
"Heath Ledger has inspired me so much, in every way possible. He opened my eyes to the uniqueness of acting, by watching him in braving himself to take risks with his career (and succeeding). He made me a happier person by watching his performances. He had great taste in music, directing and picking the roles that he wanted to play. You couldn't ask for a better actor, and in my eyes, he was the best that will ever be. No one will be more of an inspirational actor than that of Mr. Ledger. I would have been greatly honored to have met him. And I'm quite sure that he changed hundreds of people's lives. He changed mine. Even though you are gone, you are still remembered, by all of us, your fans. And we love you, and your beautiful Matilda Rose. Surely she will carry on your loving nature. This video says it all, and wait, you directed it!"

FARRAH FAWCETT DIED TOO!!!!
But, still, both deaths were pretty said. And yes, it did seem like some joke when we heard that he died, but he wasn't the only one.
and as too the "Ouch"-------------
I broke my toenail off down into the quick, so therefore, it hasn't been the best day. Sorry for causing you to squirm in your seats.

Happy Father's Day to all.......................................................................
Sonora Dodd, of Washington, first had the idea of a "father's day." She thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day
sermon in 1909.
Sonora wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. Smart, who was a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife died while giving birth to their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state.
After Sonora became an adult she realized the selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man. Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father's Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910.
President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day. President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent in 1972

Oh,, this has got to stop. Late night Munching. or as I call it "Easy Weight Gain"
List of Problems
- The perfect moment of choice for "Junk" would be between the hours of 11- 12:30 at night.
- The problem with that is---Dad's room is attached to the back of the kitchen
- Problem with that---We have hardwood floors////they just love to creak at the most convenient times
- You can't burn off food that late at night
- when you can't burn of junk, you gain a chub
- When you gain a chub, you don't look good in a bathing suit.
- NO BATHING SUIT=NO SWIMMING= NOT A GOOD SUMMER
That leaves us with two options. Neither of which strike my fancy.
A.) stop eating the food you crave
B.) start exercising
That decision comes to a.........deep sigh and lap around the house

And Spring cold, wet, and dreary?
I rode up to drop of the trash from mother's house and get the mail.
When I left, the sky was looking a little droopy.
Shake it off, and continue doing what I was supposed to.
Reach the mailbox.
Oh yes, it comes a complete downpour.
So, I hop back on the cart, and blindly drive back to mother's.
My clothes are soaked, and the mail is also.
I get her to drive me back down to COMIC'S house wearing a what?

I could never ask for a better friend than them. KJ has NEVER betrayed me, (and yes, I have had a LOT of betrayls from so called, "friends") But she has ALWAYS been there, through EVERYTHING. Always there when I needed a shoulder to cry on, and always there to provide a long laugh when she didn't have a reason to laugh. She has been through so much, and lived. We both have. And quite a few of it has been together. And, JJoppo can always cheer her up, whereas I can't not sometimes. But, I have known KJ for almost 3 years, and would do anything in the world for her. I've only know JJ for 2, and would also do anything for her. You just can't find better friends than these too. And I feel SO blessed to call them my sisters,,,,my Padres.... Partners in Crime....Laugh in a Pickle.

1. Thursday- Generation Swap's House Party
2. Friday- Shopping with the crew from Thursday Night and renting $17 worth of movies
3. Saturday- Dinner with the Ashasta's Study Group from Church
4. Sunday- Me and 4 other people's Baptism's!
3.) Saturday had to be one of THE most fun Dinners that I have EVER had!
4.) The Baptism was AWESOME! After coming up out of the water I felt like a brand new person
06 June 2009
That's what I am. Water is my life source, I can't live without it. The only rain we get around here is, well...Rain. KJ and JJoppo left for "The Beach" today. I'm looking for places in Chatanooga to stay, but that doesn't really matter since--
1. I'm flat broke, spare $24. 62
2. $24.62 will get us half a tank of gas?
3. The economy sucks.
4. Working people don't get off very often
5. I can't drive.
This conclusion stops at "Hello $17 worth of Movie Gallery"

Ah, the special wishes of 11:11, do they ever work? Are they just suspended in time with millions of other people's wishes? I believe that they come true. Tonight has been a very much needed night. We have a full party at GenerationSwap's house: GS, N/A, N/A's daughter and Grandaughter, my Cousin, and I. It's like a really big girl's night!
03 June 2009
I'm spending the night with GenerationSwap Thursday night. I don't do that very much anymore, i wish i did, but i don't, and i don't know why. i don't do alot of the things that i used to do anymore, some good, and other's bad. I feel like....like I can't walk. Do you ever get those feelings? And it's one of those things that you can't explain, and you don't know why. I'm wiping my slate clean after tomorrow night, and it's gonna be so hard, it's going to be a very long journey, but i need this journey, and i'm so beyond ready to start it. I'm letting go, but I'm also gaining in a few areas of my life. Those who are close to me know why, but for the rest....:) it's a surprise.

To A Happier Subject;;;;;
Friday night, JJoppo and I spent the night at KJoppo's house. I love those little days when we're just laughing about stupid little things until 4 am, and then getting up at 8. Keeping those little days in my head is what cheers me up at these tough decisions. And then there's the whole
JJoppo looks over at me from hearing me smacking a little too loudly on a pizza crust, and looks at the clock on her phone. "It's 3:27 in the MORNING! Do you EVER stop munching?! How do you EAT so MUCH?! And stay so thin?! Grrrr!"
You have to love those two, even if you don't know them, I have a feeling you will through stories. Lots, and Lots of Stories.

There is this "friend" that i have. Not that i can really call her that anymore. since--
She constantly makes fun of me
Finds pleasure in making me cry
Never sticks up for me when someone hurts me
You ask why i put up with this?
I care about people too much sometimes
But no more!
I'm a strong person, i don't let people walk all over me, but i try to keep my very opinionated mouth closed to keep me out of trouble, but this is too far. Best Friends...Sisters..."Besties" they don't do that, i know, because KJoppo and JJoppo are the proof. The TRUE proof.
I was always there for her, always had her back, made her laugh when people talked bad about her. And what do i get? NOTHING BUT DISRESPECT!
it's over for our friendship. No buts, no whys, no "How could you?" and no tears.
I'm turning off my phone, If she calls, she'll leave a voicemail.
