Hotlanta and dead bodies

I am on my way to Atlanta tomorrow. Wayne and I are getting ready to spend a couple days in the luxury of the Renassaince Waverly in Cobb Galleria. I have a conference to attend and he's coming along as my body guard, cheauffer, date and escort through.....THE BODY EXHIBIT.  Ok I know it's a little weird but I am totally psyched to see this exhibit. I hear it is fascinating, and since I've watched many  a dead body on the big screen in quality time with him, he's agreed to wander through a display of about 50 dead bodies with me.
Seriously, They have all sorts of spliced and cross  sectioned corpses in this display.  Who knew such a wierd thing could make me so happy?..........
which brings me to my next question........
Would you donate your body to science? I want to just give my remains to the research departement of Duke University.  I guess it really depends on what causes my demise if they will want it, but I figure, it will serve absolutely no purpose for me, why not?  Wayne says he really wants me buried next to him that snowy Virginian mountain top, but I think I'm good with just a marker or tree planted as a  memorial.    It's amazing what you can learn from the human body. Nothing quite like it.... no two just alike.....maybe I'll sneak you a pice from my cell phone at the exhibit.......

Just today I was saying how freaked out I get about pulling teeth... Dead bodies????? You are a tough woman!
However, I would give my body to science. Science would give it back!!! But if they kept it - I wouldn't need it....
Have a good trip. Hope you guys get to relax!

Sounds like...fun? I think it was LC who said she'd like to go to that exhibit. You can share your pictures with her, but with me? No thanks!

I'm an organ donor, is that considered giving my body to science?

Soooo cooool! I have always wanted to see that exhibit ! I'm with you, science can have my important parts and incinerate the rest. Just be sure my ashes are sprinkled over some beautiful tropical island ... bc that's paradise to me!
