|Hard to tell who is Robin and who is Leonard|
We at Casa de Noodles are so saddened by his death yesterday at age 63. He was too bright a star - a SUPER NOVA if you will - to lose so suddenly. Our world is certainly dimmer without him.
Robin Williams was a fixture in the SF Bay Area. He lived here (Tiburon and San Francisco), worked here (Mrs. Doubtfire was filmed in SF), and played here (ask SJ Sharkie!). On the news today, they interviewed people from the area who knew or met him. They said he was always pleasant and down to earth.
I could see that. He had the kind of face you gravitate to. . . it oozed warmth and kindness. I loves loves loves his movies especially "Pan" and "Mrs Doubtfire" - although his performance list goes on and on and includes drama as well as comedy. He voiced commercials (Apple) and animation movies (Aladdin). . . sang. . . did stand up. . . acted on TV (yes Mork and Mindy but I liked last year's offering "The Crazy Ones" which was so underrated). A wealth of work.
But I did not know he had a pug until yesterday. I think that is sad that I did not know that because he was so familiar to ME. But it makes sense. He was definitely the kind of person who would be owned by a pug.
SO. . . as I wipe a tear from my glorious liquidy orbs . . . I want to THANK ROBIN WILLIAMS for being such a talented, wonderful person who I WISH had seen the value of his LIFE as we all do.
