OK on several websites I have looked the precise time of the winter solstice is 11:12 am UTC so as I type this there is still one hour and eleven minutes to go. Plenty of time for doing er whatever.....

Er, well the earth didn't move for me ;-)

Breaking News .....

Archeologists have just found the missing last piece of the Mayan calendar. They have deciphered it, and it reads

Especially if they're jumping up and down, cheering and clapping. Thinking that they're the only ones left!

Until one of them gets a text msg from a buddy a few towns away asking how much of a idiot they feel right about now.

Again, more booze threads. ;-)

If the world comes to an end I think I'd rather be doing something a little more ah, physical. Can't say more than that without risking the wrath of the moderators.

Gonna have to find me a young man first, tho . . .

Oh, kb........
I an no longer young.......
But......

PICK ME....PICK ME.... PICK ME.....

Just saying....I am content with Lori...

But........as the saying goes......
I've always loved you.......



Sigh.

I know that movie so well I was able to follow that scene even with the computer muted. Trust Mark to pick out the one scene that was filmed in Milwaukee.

(Does admitting that make kb less likely to pick me?) (Notwithstanding that the solstice has passed...)

Ahoy, shipmates!

The free calendar I got from the local Chinese restaurant last year runs out on 31 December. THAT is when the world will really end.

I have our current Trade Union of Education calendar, which runs up to 5 January 2014. It will be a Sunday. So, after today and the date Bill has, the next Apocalypse again will be in a bit more than a year.

Personally, I am only scared to end up into the imaginary Heaven. All my mates would be in the other department anyway, enjoying a nice sauna temperature.


Regards

Hey!!! I ate waffles and butter cookies for breakfast with the assumption that calories would not matter after today. Now are you actually telling me that I might have to "burn off" those extra calories in some way other than in a fiery apocalyptic way?

Man! I just cannot catch a break...
