Dead at your age

By maecuff ·
Today is going to be a good day.

I get regular email updates from They keep me updated on who I've outlived so far. I can accept that some mae find this morbid, but not me.

Anyway, today I found out that I've outlived Lurch. Go me!

At your exact age, Ted Cassidy died of complications of open heart surgery. He was a 6' 9" character and voice actor who played Lurch on "The Addams Family" (1964-66).

It does occur to me that I have to actually LIVE through this whole day before I can truly make the claim that I've outlived Lurch.

It's not how old you's how good you look. I just keep getting better and better.

Or, my eyesight is fading at a rapid pace. Either way..

Those around are telling you lies out of a Sense of Self Preservation. :^0

It could be because they have seen the Blood on your shovel need to be replaced and they don't want to be the one who it gets used on. :0

Thank you so much! For some morbid reason I get the biggest kick out of this.

I love the check box titled Notify me when I've outlived someone

...Alice in Chains, and thinking about whether or not they would have produced much more music had Staley lived.

So, I check out this site, and guess whose name pops up as the notable 'I outlived them'?

Layne Staley.

Morbid it may be

by ganyssa In reply to Dead at your age

but I've just gone to sign up. It sounds awesome. Apparently I've already outlived Ray Combs (Family Feud) and Michael Bennett (A Chorus Line), and I've only got 11 days to go on the King of France to persecuted French Huguenots and started the Italian War.

Thanks Mae. My day just perked up.
