More DIY

Nope, not a house project this time. I read a post over at Carnealian’s blog that reminded me of something I need to do. Plan my own funeral! No, I’m not dying. At least that I know. But I’ve been thinking about it since my cousins’ mom died back in February. She had the kind of funeral I don’t want. And, to make sure I get what I want, I know I’ve got to plan it myself.

So here’s what I’ve got so far. First of all, I’m being cremated. There’s no draining my blood and injecting me with chemicals. No thanks. I’ll choose to be cremated instead. Then, I’ll either have my ashes scattered somewhere or I’ll turn myself into a gem. I think that’s kind of cool. But then there’s the “oops, I lost grandma” scenario when whoever loses the ring.

Then, there’s the party. Yeah. There will be no solemn, somber, sniveling, sad soiree for me. No solemn processional of cars with headlights on in the middle of the day. Nope! It’ll be a hootin’ hollerin’ good time! Music! Fun! Food! Life! I think I’m going to call it the:

“Interstellar Memorial “5K/10K – bake off – knit around – disco – fish fry – BBQ – square dance – karaoke – poker tournament – camp out – beer tasting” PartyFest.

A little bit of everything. That’s me. And you’re all invited. There will be much festing and fun. And everyone has to share a memory of me. Not a made-up one. But a real one. Different people see different sides of me. Once I’m gone, it’ll be time to share!

What’s one thing that you absolutely want or don’t want to happen when you die?
