I had a performance review at work today

It went something like this:

But seriously, I got the whole sort of "where do you see yourself" question...ugh. Yes, I've been labeled as having an "existential crisis". I was basically like, "yeah...I don't want to talk about this right now."

Oh, and I got offered advice. Jeez. It was something like, "An arrow knows where it's headed." Whatever that means. Bah. Advice.

Some Days I Think...

It might be a good idea to stay up all night doing the things I want to do and then just go to work to sleep. Maybe I could even sleep 6 hours there and do like two hours of actual work. Maybe...

We're having this training. It started today and goes through tomorrow. I'm totally bored. We have no internet. It sucks. I decided to play minesweeper for a while...

I wanna neck, I wanna neck

I wanna necklace made of pearls

I wanna pet, I wanna pet
I wanna petticoat that swirls

And when the dam, dam, dam, dam
Damage is done
I'm gonna run, run, run, run, run, run, run
To granny's
Sweet granny's

Swingin' on the outhouse door
Without a nightie on
Grandpa's layin' on the floor

Singin' "Granny"
"Granny, won't you give me some more."

Okay, so I vaguely remember some people in high school singing this song. Does anyone else know where this comes from? Emily (with her post about childhood nursery rhymes) got me thinking about all this little ditties I've heard in my life.

Candy's Last Will and Testament

I've been thinking about wills lately. I realize that I have nothing to bequeath to anyone, but I have been thinking a bit about what I'd want done with my body once I die. How does that get decided? Do I need to have a formal will made up for that? I really don't want to be embalmed and put in some crazy casket. I don't want people to spend a bunch of money on something that gets buried with me. Really, just throw me in the ground as is or something. If you need to, I'll allow you all to cremate me. If you can, plant a tree on top of me.

If I'm all Teri Schiavo-ish, pull the plug. Yes, do it.

What is it that makes a will legally binding? I need to look this up. Jake said it's possible that wills might need to be notarized. I remember Lelani used to have a tool to notarize documents. I don't know how she got ahold of that thing. I remember being in her bedroom and she was notarizing pages in some of her books and she said to me, "Hey, need anything notarized?" What the hell is up with that?

Brighton, if you read this- do you have anything to add about wills? I know you've been looking some of that stuff up.

Anyone else? Do you care what happens to your body when you die?
