News: Weather and a Remembrance

Well, it's still raining outside -- which was to be expected. However, it's been going on and off throughout the entire day. There hasn't been any blackouts just as of yet, but I'm not complaining. Though it would be nice to light up some candles all around the house, with the fireplace lit and just enjoying the sound of rain pouring down. People don't realize how soothing the rain can be; last night I fell quickly to sleep because of the wind and the rain pounding on the rooftop and the window.

It's been pretty uneventful aside from the long rainstorm we've been having. Waking up at a quarter to three in the morning just drains your energy from the rest of the evening, which is unfortunate and slightly bizarre. You'd think that if someone had nearly thirteen-hours of sleep they'd be fully rested and wide awake. Apparently that's a lie. I do, however, need to get back to my regular sleep schedule in order to wake up on time on Monday morning. Oh joy, oh joy.

Here's a writing/pairing meme I've decided to fill out, due to the massive boredom that I am now in the state of.

I would like to take time now to remember Jerry Orbach, who had recently passed away due to prostate cancer. Jerry was a very talented actor. He played the wisecracking NYPD Detective Lennie Briscoe on Law & Order. He had departed from the show last season because of his character's retirement from that police department, but was about to make a comeback in another spinoff L&O series -- and it was stated that he had prostate cancer just a while ago, but report said he was doing all right. It was rather unfortunate to hear about his passing, especially to L&O fans such as myself who have followed through with his acting career and adored his character on the original L&O series.

Jerry Orbach was a talented actor, and his character on the show made me laugh and definitely created the lighthearted side of the show. Many will recognize his voice as Lumiere in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and his many other productions proved his greatest talents. It was a sad loss to lose someone as charismatic as Jerry, but the memories will still live on in our hearts, and in our television sets.

Jerry, you created my love for Law & Order after hearing you crack those jokes and using your witty comebacks. You'll never leave our hearts, and I know you'll be watching over the L&O series as it still rolls on. Thank you for creating such a performance, and for just being who you are. You'll be missed by all of us, your devoted fans and the fans of L&O.

Rest In Peace, Jerry Orbach
