Happy Mayan Apocalypse Holiday Season

Well, my friends, it's the Mayan Apocalypse today.  And before the world ends, I'd like to take this time to thank each and everyone of you wonderful, funny, intelligent, and kind, beautiful people for your friendship, and support, and well wishes.  In case the world ends, I'd like to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all happiness, harmony, and peace for the coming year (or for however long we have left til the world ends).

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!


  1. My my it does take you some time to recover from your Olympic reporting Mr Swings. I'm happy to report that the Mayan thing is just a big fizzer... but don't by any means let that stop the party!

    I wish you all the very best for the coming year and have a most wonderful christmas season.

  2. I'm in Texas! later today, I'll be in NOLA, so I am really, really glad the world didn't end yesterday! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and I do so hope we'll all see more of you in 2013, sugarpie! xoxoxoxox

  3. Happy Mayan Post-Apocalypse!

  4. So good to see you again, Eros!

    Oh Hai, Prinny, Savannah, and LX!

    Merry Christmas, Eros.

    p.s. I miss the Weekly World News.

  5. Merry Xmas, Princess! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season.

    Savannah, Have a very Merry Xmas and happy holiday season! Safe travels and happy trails to you!

    LX, Thank you. It sure is nice to be around to enjoy the holidays, instead of running around fighting zombies or fleeing from vengeful Mayan gods. I wish you and the household a fantastic, cheerful Xmas and New Year!

    MJ, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you, too! The Weekly World News was certainly entertaining! Thank goodness for Infomaniac for stepping up to fill in the infotainment void!

  6. Merry Christmas, Mr Swings!
    I am always prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse.

  7. Christmas is like sex. It's all in the buildup, then suddenly it's all over.

    And some people get overexcited about it.

    And it's on TV quite a lot.

    But unlike sex, it seems to happen more as the years pass.

    A bit like apocalypses.

    Be sure to eat too much turkey and chocolate Eros, and settle down, possibly with family, to watch old films on TV. Enjoy your overindulgence.

  8. Scarlet Blue, Hear! Hear! It's always good to be prepared :) I'll see you at the bunker when the zombies start appearing!

    LX, Thank you!

    Thanks, Kapi! I did not partake in the holiday turkey this year, as I opted for my traditional bbq Xmas chicken! But I sure did eat a lot of sweets and tasty treats. Just the kind of fast fuel I need to recharge myself before venturing out to battle the masses over the post holiday sales!
