RIP Richard Griffiths

hHarry Potter's Uncle Vernon has gone to the big soundstage in the sky. I wonder if he wore a fat suit for that role. He was definitely a character you loved to hate which is the mark of a great actor. RIP

That's such a shame. I wasn't familiar with his other work, but really appreciated him as Uncle Vernon.

So sad to hear this. And he wasn't very old, either. He was a wonderful actor. One of my friends got to see him on stage in Equus and said he was fantastic. His Uncle Vernon was absolutely perfect. RIP.

Cause of death was supposedly complications from heart surgery.

Was he in Equus with Daniel Radcliffe? I would love to have seen that production.

This is very sad news. He was just wonderful in whatever I saw him in.

Yes he did appear in Equus with Radcliffe.

I first enjoyed his work in Pie in the Sky. Quirky little series.

Yeah he died at UHCW in Coventry (he lived in Stratford) To be honest I'm not surprised he died so young or had heart problems because he's been seriously obease for years. He was perfect as Uncle Vernon though and I loved him in Pie in the Sky.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
