If I should die

Don't know why I didn't think of it when I was talking about Stories of Suspense a while back. It includes Jack Finney's "Contents of a Dead Man's Pockets."

Wayne's got a pic on his blog of what the Reaper might find.

Along with keys, change and a few other odds and ends this is what he'd get with me.

I tend to like casual slacks with extra pockets on the legs these days. Allows for easier toting of the iPod, cell and digital camera.

I refuse to wear my cell phone on my belt as a matter of personal preferance.

If you die, can I have your ipod? Just a thought. Hey, Sid..you know how we've been talking about discovering old books or revisiting books we read? I cleaned my office today and found a copy of STRANGE EONS by Robert Bloch, a novel of the Cthulhu mythos. I never read this sucker...I've had it for years and years apparently.

Here's to Mr. Bloch. And I also understand Bloch is releasing a volume of his Cthulhu Mythos stories soon. I have to say I am an enormous fan of mythos related material, especially when it is done well.

I love Mythos stories too. I don't have that one by Bloch. Sounds interesting.

I'll get the iPod put into the will and figure out what I should leave Wayne and Charles.

Imagine if a woman should start trowing the contents of her bag out..I think it will kit out an entire house, my dad always say all that my mom does not have with her is the kitchen zink:)

Sidney said...

Oh, if you wanted to extend it to briefcases I could create quite a spread as well.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord my soul to keep. And if I die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take. And for the will, I'd like the number 23 tag please. I figure it's the key to something Very interesting, especially since 2 divided by 3 is 666, the number of the beast. And just below it is a 7, which is the perfect number of God.

Now I lay me down to sleep, a bag of peanuts at my feet. If I die before I wake, give them to my neighbor Jake. Burma Shave. I refuse to own a cell phone, call my crazy. But if I did have one, I would tape it to my forehead with duct tape just to one-up those people with those weird ear phone things that look loike boll weevils.

LOL, etain. I find these "contents" post fascinating, but there's now way I'd display the contents of my purse.

Your pocket contents look very high-tech, Sidney.

Is that an iPod, a cell phone, a PDA, and a big ole ring of keys in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Get a manbag Sid. Times have changed. The other day, in the bookstore, I saw a copy of VOGUE for men!
