So, it's 21 December in this part of the world. Can't Post

The planet's still here. No more aliens than usual are walking around.

The last day of the world looks pretty much like every other day this year. Just with more humidity.

Looks like Christmas is still on!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Back when 1999 switched over to 2000, I got an e-mail from a friend in Australia pointing out the lights were still on there!

It's a good job I didn't spend all my money if I still have to pay the mortgage next month.

I was really worried:( [In reply to] Can't Post

Now i have to find something else to worry about...
But what if i can't anything else to worry about?
SmileI can worry about that!Crazy

Ataahua i thought you said humility. At least i do not have to worry about hum-i-dity until June

There is that Manhatten sized asteroid out there that may be 'a bit close' one distant day . Maybe humility is not a bad idea anyway.

Christmas is on:)! What to ask santa for.....! A asteroid zapperSmile!

I made sure I saw The Hobbit last night in preparation, [In reply to] Can't Post

just in case it was all over today.
Since it's not, I can wash the couch covers and dog blankets, and arrange to go and see The Hobbit again. Cool

*mods this whole thread up* [In reply to] Can't Post

One of our TORnsibs posted on fb "Happy End of the World Eve" which got us to thinking about what kinds of carols we should be singing. Things like "It's the End of the World as We Know It" and "Party like it's 1999".
