Baby Ade!

Writer's Block: On Your Tombstone

What do you want written on your gravestone and why?

When I die, I hope my followers will erect a life-size monument of me (it won't be very big) over my grave. Preferably something like me sitting on a giant pumpkin (carved like Cyclor), wielding a very large pencil like a sword in one hand and a lightning bolt in the other, with a cat on my lap and several more circling me on the ground (with a kitten nuzzling Cyclor). The inscription will read something like, "Here lies Ade, small in size but well-endowed in imagination. Though her body has returned to the earth, her spirit has gone to be with the gods she created, and her works will live on long after her passing. 1983-20[??]. If you desecrate this grave, Zombie Ade will rise with her army of zombie kittens and devour your whole family."

Also, when I die, I want people to immediately put me in a biodegradable coffin of some sort (or a cardboard box) and bury it. No autopsy, no embalming, don't even change my clothes (unless I die naked - then PLEASE dress me in something appropriate), just put me in my coffin and bury me. I shall be a feast for the worms. Also, I don't really want a funeral, just play "Happy Phantom" as you're burying me, and then go out to some restaurant and order girly drinks or something.

I should totally put those paragraphs in my will.
