This is just a small reminder that the world is expected (by some folks) to come to a crashing end on 21 December 2012. Turns out that’s a Friday. So be sure to take that ‘long weekend’ the week before, not the week of, ok?
This Friday (it is still Friday in some parts of the world, like Hawaii, as I type this) is the 5 week marker. So “one more month to go”, plus a couple of odd days extra notice to allow time for folks to get around to reading this posting.
I know, after the Y2K monster “Collapse of Life As We Know It” dud, a little thing like the Maya End Of Days is hardly worth noticing. So why bring it up? Frankly, I’m celebrating. As “The History Channel” seems to have abandoned history to become “the crazy Alien Theory and DOOM!! channel, and was just running a show asking that most important of historical questions: “Will Ancient Space Aliens return on December 21, 2012?”, I’m celebrating the fact that soon all that crap will be over. (Though that likely won’t stop them from doing re-runs of it forever… but at least then it WILL be history….)
So don’t forget to “mark your calendar” (Mayan or otherwise) and “party like it’s the End Of Days” on Dec 15-16th (as thats the last weekend you get). Heck, even think about playing hooky the week of 17-21. Never know when you will get another chance. Might also want to brush the dust off your Alien Encounter Guidebook too, just in case…
You know, for being hyped so much, and so long, there’s remarkably little concern showing up in the global press. Almost enough to make a fella wonder if folks just aren’t taking it as seriously as the History Channel… But, no worries. I’ll be making a sporadic posting or comment each week as The End Is Neigh, just so we all don’t forget to notice when it happens. Whatever “it” turns out to be.
Me? I think it will just be the start of a lot of rains in South and Central America. That’s what The Dresden Codex says on it. (It doesn’t really say ‘end of the world’, just ‘end of this cycle of the long calendar. Oh, and expect a lot of rains from the sky.’)
T Minus 5 Weeks and counting, even if a bit sporadic and half heartedly…

So you might want to plan that last week as a vacation trip to the desert…
