So, I went to the funeral parlour with my sister ... to get the necessary arrangements done. When my mother died, it had rained all day ... - which is the only adequate weather for a proper Death-scene, if you ask me. Unfortunately, it was all back to that disgusting summer-sunshine dreadfulness right the next day, so I was being a tad grumpy.
The mortician, though friendly, was basically a walking sedative, who totally got on my nerves by repeating the same things over and over again. The fun only began, when we went downstairs to have a look at the coffins. Well, what can I say ... I'm obviously GOTH, and the sight of coffins simply cheers me up. I even managed to (unintendedly) freak-out the mortician by climbing in ... to test-sleep in the one my sister picked. Here it is:
Not particularly beautiful, I know, but the selection they offered just wasn't too exciting. At least it's comfy ...
I am very sorry for your loss, and hereby offer my condolences.
The pictures of you and your mother's hands are beautiful and at the same time awefully melancholic.
I wish you and your sister strenght in these difficult times.
Of course, with you having stated that we were allowed to ask some questions (and the fact that I think most of us have scoured the entire web to find you), I too will take my chances.
Since you've got to know the fans more and more over the years, it might be nice for the fans to get to know you a bit more.
So maybe you could enclose some personal info about you, like (as discussed earlier) your date or year of birth and so forth?
And something I have been wondering about, where have you attained such knowledge on the instruments you use in your music? I have been working with music for years, and trying to listen to the seperate instruments blows me away.
And I think that, coming back on the personal question I asked first, it would be highly appreciated if you would consider doing a video interview. So we can see the Godess outside of her video clips.
And maybe (though I think this one won't happen) you would consider some public encounters with your fans?
If I think of any person I would love and adore to meet, you are the very first to come to mind.
I eagerly await some sort of reply of our Beloved Godess

I think it's a lovely coffin. Too bad everything is so expensive, save for the pine box. Though I think those who pass on do deserve something very lavish and comfy to pass on to the next life. Again, sorry for your loss darlin'>
