Happy Mayan Apocalypse Holiday Season
Now, I know my friends over in New Zealand and Australia have all ready reported that it's December 22, 2012 for them, and the world has not ended. But I've goggled what time it is in the Yucatan where the Mayans lived and found out that they share the same time zone as my part of the world, Central Standard Time Zone, or it's 9pm right now. So, in three hours, the world might end. And I plan to spend what might possibly be my last few hours on earth with some friends at an End of the World party, counting down the hours til the end.
It's been over a decade since I attended an End of the World party, especially since that fascinating news journal, World Weekly went out of print. There was a time when we could all count on the World Weekly to predict when the world would end, and we'd plan our End of the World parties accordingly. Alas there has been quite a lack of doomsday prophecy/apocalypse dates and no coverage of Bat Boy since that fine news journal ceased publication.
And just in case it's an alien invasion or a zombie apocalypse, I've got my bug out bag (loaded with survival gear) and some water and food in my car, and my sports tomahawk, ready to take on the hordes! I ain't going down without a fight! No one is eating my brains for dinner!
If the world is going to end, I am going to celebrate it with the people I love and have fun til it's all over. And I want to take this time to say to all you amazing friends, thank you for everything! And I'll be sure to toast you all and celebrate our friendship while counting down the Mayan Apocalypse. I'm not sure if it's going to be angry Mayan gods on a rampage, or a devastating climate shift, or some extinction level cosmic event that destroys our world. But whatever happens, it has been my honor and joy to have met each and everyone of you on the blogosphere.
And just in case we survive the Mayan Apocalypse, I want to wish you all every Wonderful and Happy Holiday Season, and May the New Year bring you all good health, good fortune, and good times! Cheers!
