Former Bloggers :-(

Once upon a time I had a blogger buddy named Nigel. The dude was a real hoot. He's provided me witith many laughs over the last few years.

Over time, as seems to be the case with most bloggers, his blogging slowed down to nearly a stop. I moved my browser favorite to his blog to an "inactive" folder. (I do that often, and check in every so often to see if they start back up.).

Anyway...

On 2/19/09 he posted. At some point after that he shut it down. That's when I moved the fave into the "inactive" folder. He opened it back up in June of 2009 and made two posts, then didn't post again until November. Then a few posts in January of 2010, and two in March.

On May 18th, he posted this, explaining why he wasn't around so much any more: Lung cancer.

On 7/22 he posted this:

"Medical Update
Well, shlubs, being that it is what it is, here now is my latest and greatest:

  • I have a vision of heaven. It's Lindsey Lohan crying while Mel Gibson screams at her.
  • Loads of fun at parties.
  • Doctors suck
  • Doctors really suck
  • Doctors suck dead hippos, though nurses are okey-doke with me, mostly due to the sponge-baths.
  • Don't smoke.

The end, shlubs."

Shame...Fucking shame. Visit his blog, and enjoy the wit of Nigel St. John Regina Smegmatica Howle-Raines.

AND THEN THERE WAS PEG
She had cancer too.
She stopped blogging in April of 2009 without a trace.
Poor thing.

Here's one iteration of her blog. She had two or more over the years.

I've only lost one -that I know of - to cancer. It still sucks.

Wow Carlos. I thought it was going to be something about crappy bloggers like me that just stop writing...and then just start again like nothing changed. Not that they died!
Sad day indeed...
