    if I should find out I am terminal... hmm...
    Well.... I want to be nice and comfortable... AKA... no nausea/pain.
    Forget the g-tube, and the hydration...
    now, once I'm dead, I want to be put on a small wooden raft, set adrift, and set aflame...yup... total viking funeral...
    I want my friends and family to remember me for being a kooky freak...
    I want loud music to be played... I want people to laugh and party...
    I want a rosted suckling pig in a pit being turned by 2 big hawaiian dudes...
    So... I want a luau funeral... I want there to be dancing by firelight.... drums blazing, the music helping my soul to coast to the next realm...
    *sigh... i have great plans for then... but, I wanna push it back as far as possible..
    ok kids...
    be well
