Rereading my last post from 2 years ago - I am still at Mortuary Service Provider. My interviews didn't pan out like I had hoped, but in looking at those same companies now I only only be grateful. One has a problematic worker, and their record with female employees makes me thank the Goddess everyday that I do not have to work with him on a regular basis. Nothing like having have your staff quit in protest when you bring said problem child from oe funeral home to another.

The other position (different company) was given to another person, and honestly I cannot understand why they do things the way that they do. But I don't work for them, so it really doesn't matter I guess.

Its a very small world in the death industry, so you always want to be cautious in what you say or do.

Lets be honest. We are all going to die. That is the truth, but have you thought about what it means?

I invite you to ask me anything about the death industry, really, anything.

I will respond in an open and honest manner.

I got sad news this past week in that one of my uncles was taken off of life support on Sunday.

He'd had a brush with lung cancer several years ago but had surgery and all was good. Apparently they did not as it had metastasized and when they found it this time it was too late. He was placed in a brief coma and then taken off of life support.

I know I am okay with it all, but I fear badly for the wife he is leaving behind along with his sons and grandchildren.

Goodbye Kenneth, you will be missed by your brothers and mother who survive you as well as the numerous nieces and nephews.

It's been a hard couple of months for mothers in my extended family.  Two have lost their mothers in the past couple of weeks (one just last night) and others have been hospitalized.

Well hell.

From over at Live journal: http://community.livejournal.com/escapade_con/65683.html?view=227475&style=mine

Minotaur, whose wonderful website gave many a intrepid slash fangirl the logistics and how-to knowledge for writing male/male sex scenes has passed on.

I had the privilege to meet him at the second Sylum Clan Gathering, held in Anaheim. He was kind enough to come down and answer questions from a room full of women about sex and the gay male.

My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family today.
