I gave up and went to work. That's what's going to be on my tombstone.

This is something I recently discussed with a friend as we were reading the absurdly condensed career histories that pass for headlines on the Obit page of the New York Times. I was musing what mean would be, and she rattled off in perfect NYT style:

Auto-didact Techie Found "Good-Enough" Solutions

She knows me (and the New York Times) way too well. What will be on yours?

  Did you hear about what that dude from warner bro.s had on his tombstone. Mel someone who did the voices for Bugs Bunny, Daffy duck etc. (sorry loco, Im afraid they were ONLY cartoons!). Anyway, on his tomstone, he had written: That s all folks! As for me, well, we got a long way to go before i have to think about that, i hope!

  I would love to have something really out of place. Like 'Here lies Loco, passed away. You know he wasn't really gay.' or just 'F*ck'. I think it would be nice to go out with a bang, and so people remember me.

  I suppose "Gosh, that's just too bad." Would serve just fine. But it's not really my epitaph I'm most concerned with; it's my last remains. I should think I'd like them creamated and put into a chocolate cake. That way every one who attends my funeral can take a piece of me home with them and say, "She'll always be in our hearts.. and colons."
