I’m fairly certain that there must be a legion of asshole Balrog dust mites living in between my walls and in my bedding, making my room in particular even hotter, while the flame of Udûn pillow/bedding dwellers use their microscopic fiery whips to lash me into further misery and discomfort…Gandalf doesn’t want to lend me the ring of Narya to fend them off, because it’s “A Wizard’s Swag”…selfish bastard…~Zora

Good night, Rik.

Is anyone else still waiting for this all to suddenly not be true? =(

But what IS true, and what has managed to put a smile on my face on this very dark day, is that Rik Mayall is getting the recognition and outpour of love and respect that he deserves…there is a very noticeable buzz on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook…all over, from people and celebrities in the US and UK alike, all of whom looked on him as the fearless, comedic genius that he was…just as I do and always will. I am so privileged to have been able to grow up watching him, and I will never be able to thank him enough for all of the laughs and theatrical/comedic inspiration I have gained in following his work. And there is such a comfort in knowing that I am not the only one who feels this way.

So what are we to do now?…I don’t know…ask Vanessa Redgrave…

I suppose what I can do is to offer you my gratitude once more, and to say: Good night, Rik…you awful, twat-faced, farty-pants BASTARD. (*scratch* Comedic marvel of limitless talent, and dearest childhood hero, now and forever)
