Hugs Not Drugs




It's a good thing that the fire alarm was going off inexplicably during 5th period, that way the kids didn't notice my audible gasp when I read that Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment.

Eventhough I do still hold a bit of a grudge over his talking trash about The Morms, a-la Brokeback Mountain, I still wonder what could have been. We could have been so beautiful. I could have even gotten used to having a step-daughter named Matilda.

There is, however, one thing I don't get. They say that it was either an accidental OD, or suicide and that he was found naked by his housekeeper. I, admittedly, have very little experience with either activity....but are those typically things that one would do whilst naked? I find this all very strange. I feel bad for his little girl.

Well if it was sleeping pills, as they're now saying, it makes sense to me. He could have wanted to change, take a shower, something, and felt so weak that he had to lie down for a second, and then just never got back up. Who knows. Some people take a few sleeping pills, and when they don't fall asleep they take a few more, and then a few more...

Yeah- I saw that they said sleeping pills after I posted that. Makes much more sense that way. Scary sense, actually.

I totally get how he could have screwed up with the sleeping pills, as my friend Maury is sure to attest to. She has been 'ambien dialed' more times than I care to admit.

Okay, first, I would like to know why you are reading Hollywood gossip during 5th period and second, back off sister...I saw him first! Man was he a hot boy! He was right under Matthew McConaughey on "my list"

Jillian said...

Did I not mention that the fire alarm was just randomly going off? They made an announcement, "Please disregard the alarm."

What the hell? How do you teach with a fire alarm blazing? The kids sat with their hands over their ears. I mourned for Heath.

I feel for his little girl, and Michelle Williams. Suicide or not, its too bad.

Wasn't he waiting for his mausseuse (sp?) to come up?

Rachael said...

You crack me up...you and your sister have that talent. Speaking of your sister...is she against commenting on people's blogs...is she too scared someone will track her down? Yes, JG, I am talking about you!!!

Jillian said...

Rachel- I am not sure why she doesn't comment. Maybe she doesn't know how. I'll look into it.

Dainon- Apparently he was expecting his masseuse. I've read some reports that say the housekeeper found him, some said the masseuse did. Either way, I don't see why he would have taken sleeping pills if he was expecting someone. Crazy

Maybe he was forming a postulate. I've heard that can screw with your head. Ambien is some scary stuff.

Jillian said...

Maybe he was....smart ass. It was probably brilliant, to boot.

maybe so, but a loss none the less. :)

and soo WHAT if you were reading the internet while teaching 5th period... that's why you teach HIGH SCHOOL... they don't have to be babysat every second of every hour, right?! Well sometimes... maybe.

thanks for the post on my blog...
