D: "Do you know who Heath Ledger is?"
Me: "Uh...no. Not really. Is he maybe an actor?"
D: "Yeah. I guess so. He died."
D: "He was 28."
Me: "That's YOUNG! How did he die?"
D: "Dunno. Doesn't say."
So this morning I see an article about him on my iGoogle. I click on it to see if I know who he is but don't recognize the picture nor have I seen any of his recent movies. So I click on a slideshow to see what else he's been in.
That's when I see this picture from "Ten Things I Hate About You" circa 1999:
And now I'm genuinely sad because I LOVE(d) this movie! Did anyone else love this movie?!?
(I'm not asking you, Kristen and Shawn!)I may or may not even own this movie in VHS form.
I was going to leave you with a funny line from the movie, but when I went to look up some quotes I found that most of them are completely inappropriate. This is as good as it gets:
(Heath Ledger) Patrick: Hey there girly... how you doin'?
(Julia Stiles) Kat Stratford: Sweating like a pig actually and yourself?
Patrick: Now there's a way to get a guy's attention huh?
Kat Stratford: My mission in life but obviously I struck your fancy so you see it worked... the world makes sense again.
You'll be missed Mr. Ledger!
