    High Hopes...

    I've dealt with a lot of death in my life so the conversation came up many times in my relationship. My long time boyfriend has set his heart on having an "as real as it can be" viking funeral. Of course I understand they used to put the women in the boat along with men and I'm...

    Like A Viking!

    It kind of grosses me out to think of what will happen to my body after I die. Like being buried. Everything I worked for rots. My eyes will go gooey, myskin all black and wrinkly and disgusting. If I'm cremated then its like one big barbeque. I know nobody can avoid this and I...
