If you have ever wanted to know about the process of embalming bodies in North American funeral homes, Sundry has a brand-new post just for you. She tagged along with her brother-in-law, who works in a mortuary, and watched him prepare an elderly woman's body for a funeral.

I know some people feel that it's important to see the body of their loved one in order to have the necessary sense of closure. But after reading this, all I can think is, "No thank you, I'll just take a closed pine box."

Uh... happy day before New Year's Eve? Or something.
Check my blog for details.

Ugh.
Found in the comments to this post (which is hilarious in its own right) on Laurie King's blog:

The early spell-check programs were prone to fits of madness. When I wrote my senior paper for my B.A. (on Romeo and Juliet) my computer kept trying to disrupt their romance with a feud between the Mortgages and the Capsules.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!

*wipes away tears of mirth*

Oh, man, I needed that.
I'm going to be away for the next week. Try not to have too much fun without me. :) More details are in [livejournal.com profile] rjanderson_blog, or will be as soon as the feed from the source blog updates.
Yes, believe it or not, I have actually updated. Some thoughts on reading to my four-year-old son, and an update on the status of my original novel, at Parabolic Reflections. Or [livejournal.com profile] rjanderson_blog if you prefer the syndicated version.

Cyan. Well, I suppose it could be worse...

For those following the saga of my injured tooth via [livejournal.com profile] rjanderson_blog, it has now got to the point where drinking or eating anything, even at lukewarm temperature, is painful. I have gone from being petrified by the thought that I might have to have a root canal, to thinking that 9:30 on Wednesday morning is not. soon. enough. It's kind of like being nine months pregnant -- by then you're so uncomfortable you just don't care what it takes or what happens afterward, you just want the kid outta there.
Some mostly cynical comments about the Left Behind book and movie now available at my blog, for those interested in that kind of thing.
