For Italian class today we had the rather morbid homework assignment of writing what we would like our epitaphs to look like (he tried to put a positive spin on it by saying "how you would like to be remembered," but clearly that means epitaph).

If you speak Italian please excuse any egregious errors I have made in translation, its only my third week! Feel free to give me corrections!

I'll admit I shamelessly used google translate to translate words, but hey I made certain I understood every word I was translating so I think it shouldn't be seen as worse than manually flipping through a book.

Il suo chiamo Kris

Speaking of Epitaphs
I've been eliminated from ljshootout. When someone's been eliminated I've posted (in an entry to the community) what I regarded to be their best photo of the contest with a very brief comment about it. Suggestions on which of MY pictures (from LJSO) to use for this would be appreciated (as well as corresponding brief comments).
