You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days?
What a question!
A) I probably wouldn’t tell people but who knows? Hard to imagine what you’d do in a situation like that. Offhand, I don’t think I’d want people to focus on the “I’m going to die” aspect and have it color my remaining time with them.
B) I’d spend as much time as possible in my remaining days with family & friends enjoying their presence and letting them know just how much they mean to me. Probably impossible to do but it’s what I’d focus on. I suspect they’d know something was up though because I probably wouldn’t be my usual grouchy self.
There are so many places I still want to go and things I want to do but when it comes down to it the people in my life are what make it incredible and I could forgo experiences of places & things to spend the time with them.
I’d definitely get Michael to write my obituary for me since he gets how much I love a good & bizarre obit.
Thing is, this wasn’t your everyday trespass. Thomas was in the 32-year-old woman’s house, naked, and in a three-point stance. You know, the one where football players spread their legs, bend over and place one hand on the ground before launching an opposition play? Um, yes, that one.
As you probably guessed, Thomas was drunk when this all went down and the police were not impressed. This was not the Montana native’s first alcohol-related offense (he was cited for underage possession last year), but this one certainly ended much worse. He’s now facing charges for first-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
1) The implication that the reason Imperial County is so conservative is because of all of the Mexican immigrants. Yet oddly enough Mexico City allows gay marriage.
2) The commnent, “We just believe they are sinners, say county supervisors and religious leaders who are leading the pro-Prop. 8 fight here - and the sacred institution of marriage has no place for sinners." is a total and complete disregard for the one of the founding principles of this country — the SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!
If your faith doesn’t provide you with compassion for fellow human beings and you are delusional enough to believe that being gay is a “choice” then you are entitled to that opinion based on another founding principle of our country — FREEDOM OF SPEECH — but you are NOT entitled to legislate your beliefs into law.
F*ck you Imperial County you f*cking waste of space.
I love the Michael shares my fascination with obituaries, and as he put it when he sent this one me, “Hands down the best headline ever…”
At 17, he was living with natives in the South American jungle and, like them, wore a loincloth, got traditional tattoos, ate monkey and danced with the gods. He fell in love with a beautiful young woman, Mina, who reciprocated. They married. She soon died of malaria, and the young man pondered suicide.
This is not a wildly atypical episode in the decidedly atypical life of Roy Pinney, who survived his youthful depression to live to be four days short of 99. He died of a stroke on Aug. 9 in Manhattan, his daughter Sara Bowman said.
When I go I can only hope to have a life story a fraction as interesting as his.
SAN FRANCISCO—After a few close friends personally escorted her around San Francisco’s nicest parks, restaurants, and shopping centers, Virginia-native and first-time visitor Lori Timlin reported Sunday that she could envision herself living in the one of the nation’s most expensive cities.
"I can really see myself in one of those great big houses up on that hill, or maybe in an apartment overlooking the water," said the 28-year-old paralegal, whose friends had strategically steered her away from the city’s aggressive homeless population and infuriating public transportation system.
"How could you not want to live in a sparklingly clean city with such a perfect warm and sunny climate all year round?"
During a four-hour layover at O’Hare International Airport on her trip back home, Timlin concluded she could never, ever live in Chicago.
Oh your date does sound really nice. And I agree, it really takes the right person to make the perfect date.
Me? I like long virtual walks on the beach, getting caught in the rain, and deep kisses that last 5 hours.
I’m easy and low key. To me the most fun is going on an urban hike around San Francisco or out to the beach and stopping somewhere for tacos or sitting at a bar and splitting food. I am not a big fan of the more “traditional” dates like movies or dinner… I like to be moving rather than trapped in a seat somewhere.
But as long as the date is with someone smart, kind and funny I am pretty sure I could have fun doing just about anything.
