I've thought about being turned into chum to feed the dosidicus in the Sea of Cortez. They're so darned cute.

I voted to opt for the ocean but with the following addendum: I made a pact with my boyfriend, Taco the Octopus Chef Guy that when the time comes, we will die together. He suggested it when I told him that I get cold easily. When I sought to protest, he said, "Nothing like eight arms to hold you when your warm blood stops, darlin'."

Yes, a good chef..so good that 'Iron Chef' invited him to compete.
We were chuffed until we saw a show in which chefs chopped off
the arms of live squid to make dishes..They were still moving..:cry:

FYI: he's asked me to marry him (I said 'yes') If I'd been the man
and he the woman, I'd have had to buy him 8 engagement rings.

My new name will be Mrs. atticus finch Taco the Octopus Chef Guy.
Do you think it's a bit much to write on watery envelopes? ~ a.f.

That part where he chopped of the arms off live squids sounds very good, now, the dish would be very fresh. :lol: Live octo arms without cooking are even better ( THey have to be fresh enough to see the octo moving or there would be bacteria in the arms)

I said yes, but would rather not be creamated nor any chemical put into me. I'd rather be fish food than worm food...put the body to good use. Plus maybe my skull could be a future little octos home?? Sounds morbid but heck, why not...as long as it wouldn't harm the ecology, that would be my only concern.
