Gone Too Soon

Rest in Peace[Obit-Mag;Gossip Check]
I disappear for two days and two legends die. I first heard of Farrah Fawcett dying from cancer last Friday morning. I was packing for Baguio when I saw the news. It was sad especially since i read that her long time partner Ryan O'Neal asked her to marry him.

Then we were eating breakfast in Pancake House on our way to Baguio when Pamy overheard someone in the next table say that Michael Jackson had died. We thought it wasn't real. Until five hours later, we're checked in at the hotel and I see BBC News and true enough, he is dead. Though, I wasn't exactly a HUGE fan, I did like this music and think that it really is a loss.

At first, I was so annoyed I wouldn't have internet for two days. But then I realized it was a good thing cause then I was able to avoid all the crass jokes made about Jackson's death and I steered clear of any crazy controversy the Internet world conjured up instead of just mourning the deaths (cause apparently there was quite some craziness).

Though I love you Internet, it was good to be away from all the drama these past two days. Nevertheless, I did miss the better part of it. I'm glad to be back. Rest in peace, Farrah and Michael. I'll be praying for their families.
