Writer's Block: R.I.P

What do you want done with your body after you die?

I'm tempted to say "I want to be cremated and force-fed to people I despise", but that's been taken by the late, inestimable Dorothy Parker.

Honestly, though, I think I'll want my cadaver donated to a medical college or a laboratory for research purposes. Yeah, I know, it sounds creepy, but I'll be dead, so I won't care. ;-)

Not creepy at all. At least you have a good idea; I have no bloody clue what I want done with my body after I'm dead.

My dead evil ex used to say that if he was going to have a headstone, it would have said something to the effect of "look, I cleaned up and I still ended up here". Since he was burned into a pile of ash, however, I didn't have to worry about enduring such a thing. Besides, him being cremated means he's not going to come back as a zombie (I can but hope)

The Body Farm, just like my dad. (actually, you don't get to -choose- the Body Farm, Dad just donated himself to science and hoped, it makes me happy to think so tho. Either that or as bones in a lab somewhere)

A good friend of the family did this, planned it her whole life. No one in the family ever regretted the decision.
