The listography theme this week over at the lovely KateTakes5‘s place, is ‘the 5 things I wish people would say about me at my funeral.’ Definitely worth a visit to her blog to read her entries and the others – some extremely funny, some moving.
Given that as I write this I can’t stop giggling about the moment in Zoolander when Derek tries to say ‘eulogy,’ (‘yougoogly,’..) don’t expect much in the way of sober reflection.
Here are mine:
“Shame Elton was too choked up to perform his new song. Still it’s great that Lexie in the Sky with Diamonds is holding its number 1 position in the UK charts”
“Her pioneering research on the positive medicinal effects of white wine were truly magnifishent, weren’t they, hic”
“She was still continent, you know, despite being 103”
“Did you know her world record for number of minutes holding the tree yoga posture remains undefeated?”
“Her husband, brothers, sisters, children and grandchildren are all being so supportive of one another. They’re such a very close family.”
OK, so the last one was a little bit serious.
