In Which I Get A Little Riled Up...

I won't take up too much of your Tuesday.  In fact, I will organize my thoughts for your convenience!
-I'm on twitter!  @heatherdeetz for your reading enjoyment.   Feel free to follow and let me know your @!
-Speaking of twitter, I need help w/blogger.  I want my "social" buttons organized but I can't figure it out.
-Please recommend 5 blogs and/or people on twitter that you can't live without!
-My muse is hibernating.  Seriously.

That's about all I have today.  I would like to get on the soapbox for just one second though.  We lost yet another brilliant musician way too soon.  From the first moment I heard Amy Winehouse's voice I was in love.  No sooner did they announce her death did people on twitter and facebook start making jokes at her expense.  This happens every time someone famous dies and I just don't understand it.  Even though we don't have toxicology reports yet, of course we can predict what they will say -- she most likely died due to some kind of drug or alcohol related event.  Maybe not, but it's likely.  It's not like we didn't see this coming but it doesn't mean we have the right to ridicule and make mean comments.  

This was someone's daughter

This was someone's best friend

This was someone's everything
RIP Amy.  May your troubled soul be at peace.

  1. Yep. sad about Amy Winehouse.


  2. That's so sad. I'd not heard about her death. I send peace to her family and friends.

    OH! You'd asked me if I knew how you could set up your blog to allow people to respond to your comments via email instead of in the comment section of the blog you commented on. I *think* you go to dashboard-edit profile-privacy and then click the check mark next to "show my email address". This may not be right; I can't remember exactly how I did it. Hope it works though!!

    PS: I did comment back to you in the comment section :) No worries!


  3. Yeah it's sad about Amy Winehouse. I hope she found the peace in death she was clearly searching for in life.

    Let's see, some blogs i LOVE...
    I'm in a bit of a blogger funk right now (just summer blues and being checked out for vacay) so i could only come up with three off the top of my head.

    The Bloggess
    Hyperbole and a Half (though she hasn't been updating as frequently)
    Getting Past the Gatekeeper

  4. I'm sad we won't have any more music from Amy. She was one of a kind. And it's so stupid that people feel entitled to be mean. #cantstandit

    I think you know all my bogs I can't live without! LOL
