Okay, coming this week is another of the End-of-the-World dates which occur regularly here in California (home of the fruits and nuts, right? But it is not clear to me why Georgia was chosen as the safest place to be when whatever is supposed to happen this time does). This particular date seems to be tied to the Winter Solstice around here, which will occur a little after 3 AM -- not my time of day, so I will probably miss it. Won't prevent husband and I from using this as an excuse to invite friends and family over for party cheer, however, even it it will not be a late night revel. We specialize is silliness at our house, so bring your own robe and be prepared to make personalized foil headgear and "I survived the end of the world t-shirts."
What are all of you doing for the day, assuming this event is scheduled for your part of the world, too? And please don't be offended by my lack of serious response to the arrival of Planet X or whatever other disaster is expected (different parties have different scenarios). I've just lived in California too long -- or maybe I've just lived too long, seeing as at my age, I have a long list of possible ends looming over me! However, I'm not overly rational, since I do believe in some highly controversial things, such as, climate change, evolution, the potential for world peace, and human goodness.
