Tomorrow we are getting our inspection so we can be certified for another year. I should be cleaning the lab or making sure the paperwork is in order or something. Instead I sit here cruising the 'net. Oh well. I probably should care more but I just don't.

One of the owners father died last night. He was very old and very ill so it wasn't unexpected. In fact, for the last month they've been basically waiting for him to go. So she has today off and I'm such a heartless b*tch all I can thing of is will this effect my vacation next week?? I know that's cold but it's true. I have not needed time off this bad in a long, long time. Maybe they will have the funeral over the weekend so she'll be back to work on Monday. I know, heartless!!!!

Honestly, the thing is, I don't believe in funerals. I don't believe in burying people in the ground. I don't believe in having a ceremony where everyone sits around and cries and then watches the casket be lowered into the ground. I just don't. I think you should celebrate that person's life. Laugh, drink, have fun, remember them. I want to be cremated and have my ashes spread on the ocean. Face it, funerals are for the living not the dead. It's a time to grieve for your loss. But really that can be done anywhere.

Okay, I'm sure I've offended someone with this post. I'll go now, my work here is done :)

I can see where you are coming from, but almost think funerals are more for the living, anyways, as a step to recognize their grief and celebrate the life of their loved one. Just a thought. Nice catching up with your blog, btw! :)
