Time Out of Mind: PART ONE

Posted on 2011.02.26 at 22:47
I have no notes. I haven't been thinking about this post. But watch, while I weave a wondrous yarn of dementia - although - i think you need yarn if you're going to weave, not vice versa, although reeds would be better. Can you imagine clothing made entirely from basket reeds? Far out. When I heard, today, that some shop in England was selling ice cream made from human breast milk, I could have kicked myself for never having ever come up with the concept in my infinitely gambolling imagination. But, since I forget everything, I really don't know what to get mad at myself about for, or not, anymore, anymore... Lenore...

OK. I'd like a dictionary of people's last words before they die. Sometimes, great souls say something like, "'tis a far greater place I go to from which I came - a place free of dangling participles and run-on sentences," and similar great utterances, fit for fixing on a headstone - and believe you, me, I know a thing or two about stoned heads - but sometimes, great personages leave this word, saying such things, with their last breath, as, "Elsi! Grab the spoons!" Really - there have been some hysterical last words, I want a link... methinks...

When the great God, Thoreau, was leaving this world, as you may have recently read, he had these last words: "Here I go sailing..." Or some such damn thing. His ancestors came from the Orkneys, or Jerseys, or some damn sea-going place. But, not to be constrained by mundane, earthly sanity, he added, "Moose!"

"Moose," would have been Thoreau's last word. But then, he went and added, "Indian!"

How fun - these two last words make no sense whatsoever. The only way I can come anywhere close to making sense of them is by comparing them to one of my dog's last words, "Rabbit!"

Still, I think, "Here we go sailing... Moose... Indian." Is pretty phat, and therefore phunny. But tell me, what IS "funny", anyway? I know I've been called, "FUNNY", all my life, but who am I - will my true self only be painted when I leave this world, and I finally say something serious, such as, "...and don't forget to adjust Family Values for universal inflation" - something so incredibly profound that I instantly become elevated up to our hallowed National Hall of Fame, which includes an odd preponderance of infomercial salesmen?

If you didn't know me, you'd think that this post is completely silly, and going absolutely nowhere. Quite derriere. Unfortunately, I am needing to fall asleep real fast... But I promise, this post will amaze your mind... Damned lithium... Later...

Well we have only just met...and I am once again on flu meds, though I did not mix them with Mike's Hard Lemonade this time. =P Take it easy!

yes - i wrote that for you!! :)

Flu meds and alcohol prolly not too smart - but i've tried to self-medicate w/ beer more than once so i fully understand. Just take it easy!! Maybe have fun commenting those folks in my "DISCUSS" post - if you feel like it. I'm wanting people not to get unmotivated. Stats looked bad yesterday.

additional:

Hey - minuetcat and meimichan - I think you'd be good LJ friends!

Also - NJ peeps: jersey_fights - also for NY/PA area.

PS - (from my latest post) - - - There is no reason the whole Wisc. State Capitol building needs to be closed merely for cleaning. What we need is an INJUNCTION. (On a Sunday?) Anyone involved, please help get the idea rolling: email Jeremy via info@defendwisconsin.org and/or the State Assembly persons!) I'd post this at the community but I've been posting too much.

Also: Time is on OUR side!

I don't know what my mother's last words were, and frankly that's been really bugging me. Given the morphine and all I'm sure they were similar to Thoreau's, but it would be nice to at least have them to tell my kids.

I don't know of any bizarre last words, but I do know of quite a number of good sources on bizarre deaths. Wikipedia is one of them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unusual_deaths
What a great read :)

that link sounds interesting!

i'm sorry to evoke those memories

but my dog before last - her death was a huge gasping for air, and then dead - it was terrible

she did give me her paw, near the very end

and my LAST dog looked at my tears with wonder, and KNEW that I cared - that was nice i suppose - then the drug put her to sleep

both dogs later paid me a visit with a haunting bark in the night - intensely psychic

don't worry about your mother's last words. there are things more important than words, as you know.

Naw, you're good--last words have always interested me and I've been wondering about hers long before now.

Your dogs loved you very much--otherwise, they would not have been so attached to you during & after death. And I know what you mean about terrible pet deaths...I've been through my share and to this day those are the only memories I wish I could block out for good. Never have rabbits. Just...trust me on that, lol. They live for only 7 years--just long enough to get really attached to their great personalities--and at any time they can come down with something gruesome and kick the bucket horribly, and there's really nothing you can do about it.

Thanks for the recs!

rabbits - i had one once - albino i guess - it died in the sun

the folks on the radio were advocating raising them for food - better than having cattle

well - chicken for eggs maybe

protein is important - but i don't want to raise and eat rabbits
