I put this one off deliberately because a will is basically made null and void when you get married, so it seemed pointless to update my will before that.
My will needs are actually more basic now than what they were prior to being married. My previous will was written when I had my son and I needed to ensure that he would be cared for financially and physically/emotionally in the event of my untimely death. So that one was quite complicated as I didn’t have a spouse who would take immediate care of this. As a result I have life insurance, death and disability benefits through my superannuation and several other ‘back-up plans’ that have been in place to take care of my son if for some reason I no longer could.
So for my update, I went the really simple option. $25 and I was done. I could even specify what preferences I had for my funeral, such as my wish to be cremated and to have buddhist influences for my funeral in preference to a more traditional ‘christian’ ritual. It’s quite a weird feeling thinking about ones funeral, I wouldn’t say it scared me, or worried me, just a little odd.
Glad to have that one ticked off my list!
As you all know, I am a massive fan of indexed… but there is a new kid on the block that is totally tickling my fancy, so I thought I would share the love (click on the pic to visit the site).
So a girl was out with friends having drinks on King St (in Toronto). This guy approaches her and won’t leave her alone – keeps saying how *elegant* she is. She finally gives in and hands the guy her business card. The attached is an MP3 file of not one, but TWO voicemails this guy left her.
This goes down in the history books – especially the second voice mail. Ladies: this is what’s out there…. So have a listen…and a belly-laugh, and thank your lucky stars you are either single, or not with this guy!
