Regarding sides, politics, directions, remnenants, and going away.
My dear Miss Chauntlery,
I do apologize for not returning your correspondence of 17 May. I had meant to write when I first recieved your letter twenty-three years ago, but found myself rather wishing to do other, more interesting things instead.
However, as this unwritten missive and my own impending death are the only occupations remaining to me in this sweet life, I found myself rather eager to respond to you at last.
Yours in the fullness of time,
PS: In answer to your question, I did not wish to join you for tea on 2 June. Even as I lie dying, the prospect strikes me as insufferable.
Will it intimate independance if I buy a drink before he arrives?
People are different,
But humans are all the same.
Hello, and welcome to Top Tips. Today I'll be talking to you about ressurecting the dead.
Since the discovery of the continuity compound, ritual resurrection has become increasingly popular. However, as evidenced by the recent events in Cleveland and Sau Paulo, even the simplest resurrection can easily go amok. So here are a few tips to help all of your future resurrections go smoothly.
First, you will need:
A pencil and paper
And of course, the continuity compound.
There are also, of course, a few rules which all hopeful ressurectives should observe.
First, know that being dead is usually a pleasant experience, once the corpse in question has gotten used to that state. So don't be surprised if your newly resurrected friend is surly, rude, or unpleasant. They'll come around!
Secondly, if you are resurrecting a famous person, know that they tend to be an ungrateful sort and are likely to leave you behind and go and hang out with other recently undead famous people. Don't try and stop it, you'll only make a scene.
Thirdly, be prepared for a mess.
And lastly, try not to stare as your corpse recollects and returns to life. It's like watching someone on the toilet. Fascinating, but very rude. Also a bit smelly.
That's it for now. Good luck with all of your future resurrections, and tune in next week for more Top Tips.
In contests I often come last
Last is not a number, though
Though qualities of loss are similar
Similar attempts that yield divergent results
Results like STOP and GO AWAY
Away from the memories you’re in.

Now I look around
For your answering voice
And I see the crowd
And I look at my choice
So I stare at the ceiling and down to the floor
It's so hard to see what you'd rather ignore
But just as I
Had turned away
And would no longer see
You sang to me
"You're not the only one."
