For my life writing course I need to write about a celebrity and an event that has occured in their life; I decided on Marilyn Monroe as I believe she lived a life similar to that of a rollercoaster. So below is an interesting fact about the blonde bombshell – well not about her as such, but something that perhaps leads to more theories about how she died.
When police found the body of Marilyn Monroe in her LA home, it was confirmed that there was no access to water in the house and no visible signs that Marilyn had taken pills with water. However, when they went back to re-investigate later on, an empty glass had been placed near the bed where Marilyn lay. This will again bring up questions about whether her death was suicide or murder, something which to this day remains unanswered.
After being asked to choose a song that I would like played at my funeral, I was stumped. Do people actually think about these things? It’s perfectly normal to think about important future events in one’s life, such as their wedding day but their death as well is something that I rarely come across. After much deliberation and many minutes of searching through my iPod, I simply could not choose just one. However, I did narrow it down to two songs that would be pretty damn awesome at a funeral:
The Temptations – My Girl: This is on the list simply because it’s one of my all time favourite songs. Because it isn’t a sad one that will make people want to jump off a building I feel it would be very fitting for a funeral. I would hate my funeral to be something depressing, I believe they should be a celebration of the person’s life and all that was good about them.
Oasis – Wonderwall: Again, this is for personal reasons only. This song brings back many memories of my life, all different, and I feel it marks an important moment in my life so it would be cool to have this played for the benefit of others who shared those memories with me.
Well I have been told to do this for my Life Writing course at University and as it happens, it’s very fitting to how I am feeling at this exact moment. A much needed rant is brewing in my system and I am ready to let rip across this page. Something that bothers me an incredible amount is MEN! Now I have many important men in my life, most of whom I love very much, but they really know how to push my buttons. If you’re looking for someone to piss you off, get a man! I don’t understand why they think it’s ok to do the things they do; most of which are annoyingly unacceptable, if we acted this way they would certainly have something to say about it but because they are of the male species, they almost think it’s ok to be such wankers half the time. It’s like they have someone in their mind reminding them that it’s been at least a day since they’ve done something so ridiculously stupid. And the one time that you actually want to argue with them, the one time you want to let rip and let all hell break lose is the one time they won’t allow for it! That’s right, your blood is boiling and a massive row is on the cards, you really want to let them know how they’ve made you feel with their latest actions, your sleeves are rolled up and you’re ready for a fight. And what do they do? Hug you and apologise. No no no no! This is all wrong, what you really want is for them to shout at you and say some typical male comment that will give you a reason to call them every name under the sun, give them the finger and slam the door on the way out. But once those two fatal words have been spoken, the screaming match is no longer on the cards and you feel cheated by the lack of evil words that have been exchanged.
