Also did anyone notice that he was supposed to meet her in the Philippines but stood her up to meet a different woman (who he later impregnated and married) in Singapore. This guys is a dirty cheater with a weird Asian fetish and I’m scared for his kid.
Whoa, didn’t we get a letter about THIS, TOO???
They are usually in malls, too. I almost never go to the mall by me except for xmas shopping or if I know I need something specific, and they have a Cinnabon (plus other things you never see outside of a food court: Sbarro’s, Auntie Em’s).
Ok, all you cinnamon bun aficionados… How do you REALLY feel about Cinnabon? Should be banished from the earth, or guilty pleasure?? I think they are effing delicious but I can only eat one about once a year. I may or may not scrape the box when I am done >__>
My dad claims he either wants to be put into a Hefty bag and left for the garbage men, or taxidermied and posed with a fishing pole and a cocktail. I keep telling him I don’t think either are currently legal to do with human remains, but maybe, in time…
@Cleopatra he looks pretty dead to me 😐
@Ettakit, I read about some of the green methods when I read Mary Roach’s book “Stiff.” Some places actually have LAWS AGAINST green burial because oh noez, an actual natural dead person in the ground is weirder/grosser than an embalmed dead person inside a coffin inside a concrete box in the ground. ?!?!?!?!??!!?
MOISTURIZE + SPF
(in case it wasn’t said already)
That’s weird….. was he embalmed accidentally first? I know on the card I keep in my wallet, it says in the event I make my way to a funeral home I am not to be embalmed or autopsied. So I wonder what’ll happen if I am murdered and they have to autopsy me for evidence, but like you say, I guess it won’t really be my problem…
@stickelet I live in IL so I did it through a state organization (Anatomical Gift Association of Illinois). I am not sure if they are an Assoc with branches in each state, or if each state has their own independent organization(s) that does this. I didn’t stipulate what should be done with my remains after donation. Most of the time you go to med schools so students can practice on cadavers, in whole or in part. But sometimes they do other stuff with the donations. I think if you want to go to the actual Body Farm you have to arrange that with them.
I googled The Body Farm, and their page does have info on donating: http://fac.utk.edu/donation.html
Yeah, my mom and her husband already have their little spaces bought (they’re going to be cremated and put in those outdoor filing cabinet things- I can’t remember the official name for this). Which is good, one less thing I have to worry about.
My parents have both remarried, but my mom’s husband is younger than her. And I would not be surprised if my dad’s current marriage didn’t stand the test of time. They love each other, I think, but there’s just a lot of stress there. Anyway he is also the oldest of 9 siblings so hopefully I will have some aunts and uncles (albeit elderly themselves) to help with this stuff.
I just have to get my dad to make a will. I have been up his ass about it recently. I’m only 32 and I’ve already filled out the paperwork to have my body donated to science. Just deal with it!! I know his wishes and his wife’s would be COMPLETELY different, so it all needs to be on paper.
@K I am an only. I have some step-siblings, but I didn’t acquire them until I was a teen, so we aren’t close. Plus my step-mother really promotes that “my family vs. your family” mentality so it can be hard. I really only get along with my younger step-sis, because she’s tired of everyone’s dramz, too.
I never ever wanted siblings growing up. As an adult, I still don’t want them really, but it might be nice to have someone help with the whole “parents getting old” thing. I am scared to death about that.
