Landing at JFK: Ewen comes to the States for 3 weeks!
Invading foreign soil: I visit Scotland for 10 days (10/28/05--11/7/05)
The great beyond: 8/31/06 is sort of my deadline for making some decisions about my life; namely, what I want to do in terms of school, career, etc., at least for the next few years.

and you hunger for the time
time to heal, desire, time

I like the late British/Irish comedian Spike Milligan's tombstone enscription - "I told you I was ill!"

'He Had it Coming'.

Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

hmm not sure about the tombstone....

but for my funeral music, any of the following

arcade fire's "funeral" album in its entirety
joy division's "atmosphere"
pj harvey's version "is that all there is?"
nick cave & friends "death is not the end" (depressingly fun)
radiohead "how to disappear completely" ( would play as either the casket is being lowered to the ground, or as the ashes are being spread...either way)
elliott smith "pitseleh" .. um probably almost anything by him

not sure if id want my funeral to be a sobfest or celebratory event but if it was the latter definitely the flaming lips "do you realize"

I'd go with cremation and scatter-the-ashes as well. There's something nice and clean about fiery burial IMO. As for the song... U2's "Kite" would be my pick.

I've already told my parents that i want "40" played at my funeral.

I'd also like to be cremated...but if i were to have a tombstone..........

"She dedicated her life to public service to make the lives of others better as well as her own."

Something along those lines....I'm not good at getting sentimental

Can't think of what I'd want on my tombstone, and I do want to be buried.

I kind of like those Gregorian chants that old Catholicism does. That would probably be very pretentious, though...lol.

I don't want to buried because I want my husband to move on with his life if something was to happen to me. I'm honestly afraid he would sit at my grave site day after day and never move on. I want to be cremated and have a memorial party...no sadness, just the people I love sharing stories and hopefully remembering me fondly.

I want Walk On, Kite and Beautiful Day to be played and I want everyone to leave with a smile. I would also like the following lyric printed on a memorial card and given out to everyone who attends:

Did I Waste It?
Not So Much I Couldn't Taste It
Life Should be Fragrent
Rooftop to the Basement

If Rick wants to keep my ashes so I'm near him, that's fine but I would also like some spread out over the two lakes where my father and grandfather's ashes were spread.

You got to it before me, but I was going to say:

Non-vegetarian pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, and extra cheese.

I actually really want a gravestone when I'm gone. When my Dad's mother died, no one in the family could afford one for her, and she was buried in the same New England town as tons of her ancestors and they all had stones and she had this horrible green plastic marker, like something from a garden. It was awful. I'm sort of terrified of not being remembered at all...I actually really love old cemeteries, growing up in New England was great for that because you see all these old crumbling stones everywhere in little historic cemeteries fenced off from like, normal housing developments. You see the dates and the age of the person who died and just wonder, what was this place like then? What did this person do everyday? I guess I'm a big nerdy history major is all.

No idea what I want for an epitaph, though.
