this makes me feel strangely better about rating a 2 in how good looking are you.
my family is muslim and i'm not sure they have funerals. they probably do.
and i can't quite spot the link between death and attractiveness. Clues?
Dead folks don't say no.
I'm sorry, I really am, but I couldn't resist. I spent a good 3 minutes weighing that one up lol
A bit shit, but a fact made slightly better by it being my favourite integer between four and six.
they were a bit surreal really.
all i need now's one more and a wedding.
And another one on the 30th. Don't die in winter; it takes them 2.5 weeks to get you a funeral slot :-\
as you were.
both in the last couple of years. last one was a muslim funeral, which was strange. i seem unable to control my emotions at these things and always end up right on the verge of full-on weeping. even the last one, my godfather, i reckon i probably looked more upset to an onlooker than the guys kids.
I'm a right soppy mush at funerals. I was fine at my nan's until they started reeling the coffin in and played Ave Maria.
it was my paternal grandad's. i cried, most didn't. stupid being the stupid black sheep in a stupid catholic family.
My Buba (Bubba?). My Dad's mum.
this kid who lived down the street from me when i was 8 or something. he died of cancer in his sleep. we had to sing "this little light of mine, i'm gonna let it shine" and i cried a whole lot.
i could release an album called "funeral", i think
funerals for newlywed 29 year olds a whole new level of fucking SUCK.
My grandfather and my Great Nan who was 100. One was a sad occasion, the other one less so.
1, my aunt who died of cancer.
how many females have you been to. heh
They were all ace.
my grandad who died of illness related to his life as a miner and my friends mam who died unexpectedly a couple of years ago.
My dad sitting next to me pointed at the line 'purple headed mountain' in the lyrics for All Things Bright And Beautiful and started sniggering. It was inappropriately funny. Also my auntie started blabbering on about christian science or some nonsense. Great, one side of my family are mental and think evolution is a lie!
All in all that one funeral was quite a fun and eventful experience! I would give it 7/10
A friend of mine from college died of a brain tumour a couple of years ago and last year I went to one with my mum as one of her old family friends passed away.
I never went to my Grandad's when I was a kid (8) as my Mum thought I was too young, a decision she now regrets. I never know if she was right or not.
The vicar asked me if I was in a band at the wake. I said yes, presuming he was guessing from my skinny jeans. Turned out he'd seen us a few times, and even reviewed us once. A slight highlight to an otherwise miserable day!
even though the most special person in my life ever died.
my granny's when I was 15, and a guy in my year at school who died in sixth form
a friend who died, it was really horrible
The first two in the space of a week, for two friends who died in a car crash.
The third for my grandad and as he was in a home wasnt a great shock but upsetting none the less.
and it was only for support.
I wasn't allowed to go to all the ones when i was little.
2 grans 1 grandad and an uncle. None of them were that horrible. I blubbed during the services, but the wakes have always been quite ok.
After one of my gran's funerals all the men in the family went on a pub crawl. I was throwing up the next morning - felt wrong.
It was my friend's mum.
Very sad indeed, she was a genuinely lovely person who never had a bad word to say about anyone.
