Me too, I like her best when she has an edge; which in reflects her in real life. She was messing around with Harrison in the original Star Wars. She did begin to grow up in the SW Trilogy in as the slave of Jabba the Hut in Return of the Jedi.
In whatever way you wholly observe, or, Holy observe, this winter solstice liminal season ... may you, and your family, and friends, enjoy all the blessings of a calm heart, and clear mind.
I am celebrating an apparently excellent recovery for cancer (skin, squamous cell carcinoma) surgery on the back of my neck. Looking forward to a new right-eye (cataracts/lens replacement) on January 10th., if the body says "all systems go."
The only thing that haunts me is that the cost of the treatment is exactly the same as the current negotiating price for a magnificent rock-crystal encased in gilded bronze figure of Maha Kali in (one of) the classic styles (Buddhamarga, Sivamarga: a fusion of Tantric/Vajrayana Buddhist, and Tantric/Sivaite Hinduism, iconography) associated with the remarkable culture and craftsmanship of the Kathmandu Valley Newari artists.
Of course, I feel exquisite guilt at not being able to pull an oar in the strangely bobbing craft of our QA forums
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
Thanks! Please allow me to reciprocate your season's greetings.
I too have been warned that I am starting to develop cataracts in both eyes, but the need for surgery is still a year or so away. My wife already had the surgery in both eyes, and it made a world of difference for her.
Thank you and best wishes to you. Recently went through some (successful) cancer surgery. Had cataracts removed from both eyes, and lens installed. Amazing difference in my sight. One eye now does close and the other does distance. Alas, the dollarectomy is always a challenge.
