"If you seek his monument, look around."

This is the epitaph of Sir Christopher Wren, 17th/18th century architect of St. Paul's cathedral, London, affixed to his tomb, inside the church.

I can never decide if I like Wren's more, or John Keats, the goosebump-inducing:

"Here lies one whose name was writ in water."

Though in fairness Wren had more than sixty years longer to achieve things in life than Keats did.

I figure my epitaph will be something cynically lame, like:

"Almost."

But I could live with that as long as I'm dead.

One of the coolest epitaphs I have ever seen read:

"Stranger look, as you pass by -
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, soon you shall be -
Prepare for death and follow me."

Keats, by a mile. Someday St. Paul's will fall down but there will always be water.

Look. Folks. It's simple. If you have poor taste in decorating, don't go nuts in the entryway. Wait until your guests are inside before you spring something unusual on them.

What's the deal with putting animal feet on tubs? It's like insisting that all pianos should have tails, or dinner tables should have scrotal sacs. One of the things we like about tubs is their immobility, their general disinclination to bolt out of the room, scramble down the stairs, and make for the woods in a blind feral panic.

I been thinking about my wish that people would laugh more and lose the great international sense of butt-hurt that is gripping the world these days, and it seems I am not alone.


"If we couldn't laugh, we'd all go insane."
--Robert Frost

"I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh."
--Maya Angelou

"Always laugh when you can. It's cheap medicine."
--George Gordon, Lord Byron

"The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that is laughter."
--Mark Twain

"We're all here for a just spell, so get all the good laughs in that you can."
--Will Rogers

And of course, my Dead Gay Celebrity Buddy and fellow countryman Oscar Wilde (whom I prayed out of Purgatory as a child), who said:
"If you want to tell people the truth, better make them laugh, lest they kill you."


So really, if Oscar could still laugh after being sentenced to hard labor for buggery, and Byron could laugh after being exiled for f**king his sister and buggery, and Mark Twain could laugh in the midst of his lifetime of bad hair days, why can't everybody? I hope to do what these wise people suggested, and just laugh more often, because even though life will kill us all, it can't stop us from making an honest effort at a chuckle before it does.

Right?

NOW you tell me there's no sex in Heaven, after I been waiting the last eighteen years to start banging some guy again in the afterlife??

Naw, man, in Hell they'd probably burn your privates off, then marry you to a mucus demon with a thing for Scottish eunuchs.

FWIW, the Bible never says there is no sex in heaven.  It says there is "neither marriage, nor giving in marriage."

Assuming that Heaven is real and that Jesus knew a thing or two about it, I am willing to bet that what we have there will surpass what we have here as the stars in the sky surpass the diamonds of the earth.

Besides, I don't think having sex is truly the greatest experience this life contains. (Don't say it, indy, don't say it, indy....)

Am currently into Woody Allen's mindset (as an actor) - if only because I have been dieting on some of his old films these last few weeks. Here's a few of my favourites:-

"You can live to be a hundred if you give up all those things that make you want to live to be a hundred"

"I am not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens"

"I don't think my parents loved me much; they put a live teddy bear in my crib"

"I had a terrible education: I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers"
