Assignment 51

I did an assignment from the Learning to Love You More page. 51. Describe what to do with your body when you die. Ultimately it is about the people that are left behind. What do they want? I'll be gone so it doesn't really matter. . . But if I do get a say so, I'd like to be mulched. I read about this in the wonderful book by Mary Roach, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. So how does a girl get mulched? I would like my body flown to Jönköping, Sweden to The Promessa Foundation- (unless by the time I die, croak, kick the bucket, say the big sayonara, there is a closer facility that does this process). My body will be treated with liquid nitrogen which will freeze dry me, transforming my body into organic, odorless, hygienic powder. Extensive use of embalming fluid is eliminated. I'd then be placed in a biodegradable coffin and buried in a shallow grave, Maybe there are some trees or plants near by. I hope sometime before this or after or both, there is a party where everyone that loves me gets really lashed and tells stories of me tripping, falling down and hurting myself. I hope they laugh a lot and maybe cry a little. I hope that I am missed but that they move on and think back on me fondly.

A million years ago I suggested being used for furtalizer. I thought I was being cleaver. One of your "dear" sisters said no way I would be haunting her forever to clean her room. Now that is something I can do - but hopefully I'll be having to nice of a time to be bothered haunting anyone.
Oh how is your resident ghost?

No ghost. Felt like I was being watched one night at the computer last week and I felt really cold then the feeling went away. Personaly I think it was just my imagination. Still not sure what to make of the music I heard.
