I've been thinking a lot lately, about death. It's nothing new to me. I've grown up with it and I think because I was exposed to it more than most people, I kinda see it as a part of life, it happens to everyone, you grieve and you move on.
But what I haven't put much thought into is all the logistics involved. Lately, I've been thinking about things like wills, cemetery plots, cremation, etc.
First of all, I don't have a will and know I should probably start to write one. Do I need a lawyer to do this? Or can I just write it all down somewhere and have that be official enough? And who do I leave stuff to, and what do I leave? There's the obvious assets like car, money, real estate, but what of things like my Madonna collection, antique furniture, computers, and gay porn? Do I have to list every single thing and what I want done with it?
Then there's me. The actual body. I was at the cemetery on the weekend and was thinking how awfully expensive it is to buy a plot of land to be buried in. Not to mention the coffin and then the headstone. Then I thought, why not just get cremated? Scatter my ashes... somewhere. But where? The questions keep coming.
I think I want to sign up and be an organ donor. And maybe I should donate my body to medical science after that, just so I can be as useful as possible when I'm gone.
Do you ever think about these things, or is it just me?
