My Friends “To Do List” for When I Die

January 31, 2007

OK… so most of you know this already, but it never hurts to reiterate, since we were probably drunk when we had the original conversation…

When I die, do NOT bury me, CREAMATE me. I’d prefer a huge funeral pyre blazing on a make-shift wooden raft right around mdnight in the middle of a picturesque lake located in a beautiful valley and surrounded by rugged mountains, and thanks for asking. Yeah, yeah, yeah….. I know… how often did I ever get exactly what I wanted out of life, and why the hell would I possibly expect it to be any different after I’m dead?

Do NOT put me on some somber display and mourn my death. Don’t cry, or try to be quiet with murmurs and whispers in what some call “respect”. If you love me, and know me at all, then you know I’d hate that. Instead, build a bonfire by the afore mentioned lake, party like you’re 21 again, plaster my picture on one of the kegs or coolers, and celebrate my departure. Be happy for me, ’cause i’ll FINALLY be far away from Wynne, with no chance of ever having to return. I’m pretty sure Amanda can supply you with the appropriate photo. She displayed it on her mom’s fridge for YEARS. Try to do it on some private property somewhere, with permission of the owner, of course, so the cops can’t bother you.

For the music, grab my cd case and crank up the volume. Sarah and Steve know my favorites. Hell, Sarah still has my absolute favorite cd, and Steve has copies of my top 50 tunes. LOL! But for the very last song… the epitaph… the eulogy… the final farewell… I want you guys to raise your glasses, flick your bics, smoke a fatty if ya wanna, and play “I’m moving on” by Rascal Flats. It fit me the first day I heard it, it fits me to this day, and it will still fit me when I’m gone. And yes, kimmie, I’d be thrilled for you to lace a hog-leg with my ashes and smoke me up, so I could be with you “forever and ever”. It might just be the sweetest, smoothest smokin’ thing you ever toked on!

Don’t think for a second you have to talk about “the niceties” of my life, or the rougher times I made it through. Instead, tell the stories of the stupidist things you ever remember me doing. Talk about my dumbass ideas, hair-brained schemes, off-beat ideas, and the goofy quirks I had. I once read “you are only as strong as the tables you dance on, the drinks you mix, and the friends you roll with”, so party hard, drink hard, hugg each other hard, and remember that i loved you, and would do anything for you. I’ll be with you always, and you’ll know when I’m there. I’ll be the thought that makes you laugh out loud in the middle of silence . When you trip over your own two feet, or lose sometthing you just sat down in front of you… that would be me fucking with you. When your watching porn and need to suddenly turn down the volume or go to a black screen because someones suddenly walking in unannounced, I’ll be the reason you can’t find the remote, the volume suddenly blairs and the power button is stuck. When you just can’t believe something that stupid happened… I caused it. I’ll also be the tune you find yourself humming, the $20 you didn’t know you had, and the dumb-luck that saved your ass.

So… don’t miss me when i’m gone, ’cause I won’t be!


To Love ot Not To Love????

January 18, 2007

“It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone… but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.”

“Love is good in feeling, even if you are always being hurt. It is better to be hurt by love than not loving at all”.

“To fall in love is awfully simple, to fall out of love is simply awful.”

“A kiss is something you cannot give without taking and cannot take without giving.”

“Marriage resembles a pair of shears, So joined that they cannot be separated; Often moving in opposite directions, Yet always punishing anyone who comes between them!” Sydney Smith

“Your task is not to seek for love, But merely to seek and find All the barriers within yourself That you have built against it.” Rumi

“Age does not protect us from love, But love to some extent protects us from age.”

“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” Aristotle

“My love for you is a journey; Starting at forever, And ending at never.”

“The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.” Emil Ludwig

“The course of true love never did run smooth”. Shakespeare

“Love is like the truth, sometimes it prevails, and sometimes it hurts.”

“You will never know true happiness until you have truly loved, and you will never understand what pain really is until you have lost it.”

“You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.”

“What greater thing is there for two human souls that to feel that they are joined… to strengthen each other… to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” George Eliot

“Love Does Not Fail For You When You Are Rejected or Betrayed or Apparently Not Loved. Love Fails For You When You Reject, Betray, and Do Not Love”. Adi Da

“The most difficult thing to explain in life is the simplest truth called love.” Ramanathan Srinivasan

“Being deeply loved someone gives you strength, While loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu

“It has been wisely said that we cannot really love anybody at whom we never laugh”. Agnes Repplier

“Love is like war, Easy to begin but hard to end.”

“Look at time and distance as the essence of the understanding in realizing how price-less it is to have you”. Ronald Johnston

“Tell me whom you love and I will tell you who you are”. Houssaye

“How come we don’t always know when love begins, but we always know when it ends?”

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it..”

“We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck. But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.” Ellen Goodman

“Don’t find love, let love find you. That’s why it’s called falling in love, because you don’t force yourself to fall, you just fall.”

“What the heart gives away is never gone … It is kept in the hearts of others.” Robin St. John

“No three words have greater power than ‘I Love You’.”

How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved.” Sigmund Freud

“Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. . . . When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence”. Edmond de Goncourt (1822-96) and Jules de Goncourt (1830-70),

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.

“The heart has its reasons, of which reason knows nothing”. Pascal

“Love must have wings to fly away from love, and to fly back again”. Edwin Robinson

“Love is when you look into someone’s eyes, And see everything you need.” Kristen Kappel

“The prerequisite for making love is to like someone enormously.” Helen Gurley Brown

“Love is that enviable state that knows no envy or vanity, only empathy and a longing to be greater than oneself.” Joe McMahon

“I am in love — and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life.” D. H. Lawrence

“Love is sometimes denied, sometimes lost, sometimes unrecognized, but in the end, always found with no regrets, forever valued and kept treasured.”

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, in life after life, in age after age forever.” Rabindranath Tagore

“Love is the most beautiful of dreams and the worst of nightmares.” William Shakespeare

“A man loses his sense of direction after four drinks; A woman loses hers after four.” kisses. H.L. Mencken

“Falling in love is painful on the knee’s” Bon Jovi


The Man I Wish I Knew

December 31, 2006

He’d be able to laugh with me at the silly things I do. (I’m a natural clutz!) He’d respect my values and morals even if his differed from mine. He’d not only know the meaning of MONOGAMY, but firmly believe in it as well. He’d be honest, confident, and assured of his own self-worth. He would enjoy learning about new things, and discussing them with me over coffee. He would tell me his thoughts, ideas, and opinions with ease, and want me to do the same. He would find humor and enjoyment in the little things and realize that life doesn’t deal in black and white, but has a thousand shades of gray in between…

Someone who’d move the hair away from my eyes, and then kiss me. Someone who would sing to me at random moment, no matter how bad he sounds. Someone who would slow dance with me, even when there’s no music. We’d make out in the pouring rain. Someone would never be afraid to say “I love you” in front of his freinds. Someone who will lay back with me and count the stars, or stay home with me on a Friday night just to help me make dinner and watch movies together under the same blanket. Someone who will tell me I’m beautiful, but not to often. Someone who would talk with me and laugh with me like no one else could, and be my best freind.

I guess that’s why I read romance novels though…….
