On the somewhat morbid topic of funerals. Is there an address I could send a memo to in order to suggest that perhaps priests at such ceremonies lighten up on the "It is so *totally* awesome that this person is dead and kickin' it up in heaven" aspect? Furthermore, the whole "God has called his servant home" bit makes God sound like an inconsiderate jerk. I liked it better when it was more of a mysterious plan as opposed to a premeditated divine strike.
That being said, this morning's one wasn't for a relative or anything, a friend's mum passed away over the weekend but for the record, when my time comes I want wailing, gnashing of teeth, sack cloth and funky bass licks and "Awesome Forces" by the Aquabats. Ave Maria can kiss my ass.
