I go to Yahoo to check my now-forgotten Yahoo e-mail address, and I find myself reading that American actor, Charlton Heston has passed away!

I sort of can’t believe it… always part of it, I guess. My first and most notorious impression of Mr. Heston will always be Ben Hur, which they re-run every Eastern in Peru. When I was little, I would always freak out in the scene where Ben Hur’s mom and sister reveal they have leprosy. Always scared me, LOL’

Shocking and sad news =( Heath Ledger died from an O.D.

It’s a few hours after this broke in the news, and I tried visiting some of his fansites, but apparently 4 of the ones that appear in the first page are down. IMDb boards are saturated with Rest in Peace messages, and other forums have dedicated forums.

Rest in Peace, Hermione

Obituary for Hermione Jane GrangerHermione Jane Granger

She Will Be Loved

Hermione Jane Granger, 15, of London was born a muggle-born but had more wisdom and talent for magic than any pure-blood would ever have. She was found in the MOM by Albus Dumbledore after she gave her life to defend and protect Harry James Potter.

Ms. Granger was the top student in her year at Hogwarts and idolized by girls who sought to be compassionate, independent, morally true and intelligent in their character. She will be missed by all except Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Ms. Weasley was quoted as saying “I am glad she is out of the picture now.” “Now we know it can be Harry and me who will have many beautiful red haired babies we can name after his mom.” “She should have never been in the picture since she isn’t beautiful like me, sarcastic and knows how to get a man”. Mr. Potter was quoted as saying ” Well, she served her purpose but she isn’t beautiful and immoral like my Ginny is.” “She didn’t smell like flowers but I used her when I needed trusted information and to get my hide out of trouble.” Ron Weasley had no comment since his mouth was full of food and he was in pursuit of a blond haired woman through the funeral home. Professor McGonagall was quoted as saying “Hermione was my favorite student. She was a true Gryffindor to the end and loved by all.”

Hermione Jane Granger is survived by her parents.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Albus Dumbledore will be officiating. The casket will be carried by Hagrid, Remus Lupin, Professor Victor, Professor Sprout and Dobby the House Elf. She will be laid to rest in the Godric Hollow Memorial Cemetery at 3:00 p.m. on June 3.
