Justin posed this question on his blog today:

If you could choose the manner and circumstances of your own death, what would it be?

It’s kind of weird because just yesterday, as I was driving to Pullman, listening to Barenaked Ladies on my iPod, I was thinking how great it would be if I could somehow arrange to hear Everything Had Changed just before I died. Ideally with my consciousness faltering and dissipating in the last twenty seconds or so. Maybe I’ll get lucky and hallucinate it if/when the time comes.

Regarding his question, I have no firm preferences at this time. Except maybe that it be in such a way that I get to see it coming and so that it’s fairly quiet (for me, anyway; it could be noisy so long as I’ve somehow become deaf by then).

Candy

I’m not all that wild about candy; I generally prefer savory things. I’d gladly take an ounce of medium-rare ribeye over a pound of M&Ms. But I do occasionally indulge in candy. Usually it’s of the gummi variety. Raisinets are good too. Recently I’ve been getting these almond bars when we do snack runs from Adventures Underground. They’re really good but I can’t remember what they’re called; only that their packaging is green and gold and they cost fifty-nine cents apiece. The bottom of ‘em is dipped in this stuff that’s almost like white chocolate, but it’s not. Anyway, I like those. I think they’re marketed as “health bars” or something like that, be we all know it’s really candy.

Speaking of gaming at Adventures Underground, it occurred to me that we’ve been neglecting conventional (i.e. typically American) boardgames. I’m going to see if I can wedge Pictionary and Trivial Pursuit into our rotation.
