Important morning questions

Well, I did manage to get some sleep last night, and then I went back to bed after breakfast, and the world is looking somewhat brighter for it. So of course I have turned to important things:

Poll #1192143 Baldr's body

What should happen to Baldr's corpse?

eaten by Fenrir
4(8.0%)
eaten by Nidhogg
1(2.0%)
given to Madame Tussaud in hopes both stench and anachronism will go unnoticed
4(8.0%)
burned with his wife, ring, horse, and that one dwarf; do you think you know better than the son of Sturla?
4(8.0%)
buried in a mound; do you think you know better than Saxo Grammaticus?
2(4.0%)
woodchipper
2(4.0%)
non-woodchipper Coen brothers reference
1(2.0%)
stolen by teenage Hel cultists
8(16.0%)
thrown into Ginnunga Gap, and if you bring up the symbolism we will all look innocent and ask, "What symbolism?"

other (suggestions welcome in comments, mythologies may vary)
4(8.0%)


timprov and I used some of the down time while traveling for me to tell him the story of the Aesir noir novel, so that 1) he could ask intelligent questions and 2) I could see what bits I knew and didn't know I knew. We haven't done this for every book I've written, but when we have, the writing's gone a lot better. I have some ideas about Baldr's corpse, but I am still up for twiddling with that part.
