What's wrong with a little destruction?

Interesting day. I witnessed a cremation.

Well, don't know if I've mentioned here before that I work in the death care industry. Today, they took us on a tour of a cemetery and the company's crematory. We happened to get there as they were cremating a 700 lbs. man. I'm definitely going to have nightmares tonight. As soon as they turn on the huge oven, the corpse's arms stand up because the skin contracts. It's awful to watch. And the heat is so intense! I mean, we were standing there literally in front of that inferno. My face felt like it was going to burst.

The guy that worked there was giving us some info on the process and everything that happened to the bodies, and he said that the penises of the dead men usually stand up from the extreme, sudden heat (2000+ degrees). All I could hear in my mind at that point was Brian's "Death gives you a real hard-on." I'm so going to hell.

Anyhoo, I've had a bit of a headache all day after that. And I need a shower fast, I feel dirty.

Btw, *points to current music*, thelocation, this song rocks my socks! ♥ Thank you.

Hiatus induced headaches, mayhaps?

Plum is a bad influence.

i feel your pain.......sorry about your head

I'm going to be cremated. I refuse to be put in the ground. It's way too permanent for me. So, thanks a lot for letting me know what's going to happen to my penis when they smoke me, Junie. I could've lived without knowing that. Seriously.

When's your band cutting it's first record???

LOL! Well, I could have lived without knowing it too, bust since I did learn about it, I thought I'd spoil it for everybody cos I'm a selfish, petty bitch. :D

Ugh... labels are turning us down. They want a name change but that's non negotiable.

Re: i feel your pain.......sorry about your head

Can't resist:

Cremation is *less* permanent?

Re: i feel your pain.......sorry about your head

Well, you asked. Don't freak or anything, k? I didn't ask to be born into this world and when I leave it, I don't want my body or whatever in the ground left behind. I don't want a marker or a headstone or anything like that. I want to be gone. If people remember me, they can remember me. I don't want them to think of a plot or a marker or anything, but it doesn't really matter to me if they think of me of at all because life , like sexuality, is fluid....it just comes and goes. I don't get that worked up about it. I'm here for now and when I'm not, I'm not, and in between, there's the b/j to tide me over. Pretty simple.

Re: i feel your pain.......sorry about your head

That's not freaky. As long as you have some way to make sure your wishes will be honored.

I've never been to a funeral. I'm terrified of death, mostly of the physical pain that might come with it. I'm afraid that my first funeral will be that of one of my parents or brothers. Or my own.




Re: i feel your pain.......sorry about your head

I have a living will and a medical power of attorney stating my wish to be cremated.

But I fully understand other people's very different views. That's kind of my view on the whole thing---that people should be able to do whatever they want. Do you want Six Feet Under? I love that show precisely b/c it's families constantly battling over issues like this. It's fascinatnig to me.

Sorry to get all morbid philosophical in your journal, Junie. :-)

nite nite, all.

What on earth is your actual job in the death care industry? Could you maybe have continued to do said job with our seeing THAT? Ew!

Jeez, Junie - you could have done that "10 things I've done that you might not have done" meme, and left us ALL in the dust! (er, so to speak!)


left us ALL in the dust! (er, so to speak!)

Eek! I'm running late for work. Just had to say that made me laugh so hard!

All I could hear in my mind at that point was Brian's "Death gives you a real hard-on."
=)) I love you.

I've had to balm a dead body before, so i kinda sorta know how you feel *shudder*.

Weeee! You like the song! I'm so glad :)
