I would have posted it before, had I known.

But R.I.P., Robert Jordan.

And no, the final book wasn't completed.

Huh. This happened a month and a half ago, and I just found out.

I had seen it on CNN.com, and then we were in Borders a few days later and they had a very nice display set up in memoriam.

Weird how that works sometimes, no? I hope that whoever writes the book will do it justice. I mean, there were certain ways that he would keep saying things in his books that made me grate my teeth (i.e. the women with their skirts "slashed" with colors - what does that MEEEEAN?) so..

Who knows, maybe it will be a situation where someone keeps writing in his name long after his death, much like VC Andrews.

Though Andrews had a million different trilogies, and Jordan just had the one epic.

Agreed. I keep wanting to reread the other books, but I want to force myself to wait until the last one is released (by whomever ends up writing it) so that I can read the whole thing. I'm happy I waited until all the Harry Potters were written and I remember the anguish of having to wait months to a year or more to get the next slight bite of what you want to read.

Boy, that went off on a tangent. Sort of.

No freaking doubt. I know that he planned on making it a doozy, like two of his regular books - and his regular books were MONDO in size - and having it written by someone else, should he die. I hear that he gave all his major plot points and twists and turns to his family so that they can find a writer once the mourning is at an end.

Ha - you can usually tell if I'm actually reading my friends list by whether or not I get news. ;)

GaughDapheere about acne
For reasons no one completely understands, follicles, often called pores, sometimes get blocked.
Sebum (oil) which normally drains to the surface gets blocked and bacteria begins to grow. Both whiteheads and blackheads start out as a microcomedone.
