Fried Green Tomatoes; Citizen Kane; gravestones

I think I am too old to be a carefree child, and too young to be anything else. :b Intead of “too old to be young and too young to be old” as said by Evelyn Couch. I finished that yesterday. Did I say that? I liked it.

I don’t know if I ever saw the ending to the movie. ^^;; Sat through the beginning and middle like three times, and I can’t ever recall the ending … like I saw Joy Luck Club two or three or four times, and it wasn’t until the fourth time that I remembered the ending long after I saw the whole movie. o.o;;

Today I watched KTLA News (Jennifer what’s-her-name kept laughing while she was looking at the Fox 11 copter pilot …), VH1/MTV stuff, uh … A.I. (the last half O_o), parts of Kikujiro XD, then watched Citizen Kane with Mommy. Fell asleep at one part. *falls over*

At the beginning, I kept laughing. And it’s all The Simpsons’ fault. XP But anyway. Good movie. Really bad tape. Mommy said we’re gonna get it on DVD. Yay, maybe then I’ll understand whatall they’re saying.

That reminds me. Not to spoil the book or anything (don’t think it’s much of a spoiler, I think the thing afterwards is more surprising … but then again, what do I know? I read things differently from other people. >.>) but when Evelyn visited the cemetary and saw the double headstone (or whatever they’re called … for couples) and I thought, gee, isn’t that a nice thing to have? One dies, the other just sits around knowing there’s something with his/her name on it, just waiting for the final date, then the people who made the gravestone in the first place have got another job over and done with. That was rather cynical, ne? ^^;;

Anyway. I also thought, what’s it like, to be expected to lie next to this person for eternity…. You know, to be tied in such a way … like, there’s the man’s name, there’s the woman’s first name, the man’s last name (legally her last name, but blah), and uhh … I’m just being weird. But still. It’s a thought.

Another thing, are their graves closer to each other than any others? Or is there like a certain distance away they have to start digging, so as not to hit any other caskets … which reminds me, I always wondered, like in X-Files when they dug up bodies, how did they do that? Would’t it be rude to strike the casket? Would they use that same marred one when they rebury the body? Or is it already marred by whatever’s going on in the ground?

Something I just thought … what if someone has their partner die, then remarries (respectably), where are they buried? Together? Separate? The first person with the second person? Or is it all in the prenuptials or something? Ahaha. Now I’m really being weird. What’s worse? Having two headstones or two grave plots? Two partners to choose between, or two families? And how did they do it in the past? Wife goes in the guy’s family cemetary, I guess. ^^;;

Family cemetaries give me the creeps. Ever since I saw that Nightmare Gallery episode. EEEEE!! *runs away with her hands thrown over her head at the thought*
