I think we had better take our grandchildrens christmas presents back as the world is ending tomorrow.

According to my local radio it is due to end at 11.11 am. I have already emailed friends to say goodbye and have arranged to meet them on the right hand side of the pearly gates grin

I heard someone saying on FB that would all the people who think the world is ending tomorrow please bring their valuables round to them!! However I will give my GC a slightly bigger cuddle in the morning when he leaves for school ;)

Hi Barrow

Have you got all your money to take with you?.

Barrow Thu 20-Dec-12 17:42:48

I didn't think we needed money in the hereafter confused

glammanana Thu 20-Dec-12 17:50:39

Movedalot Thu 20-Dec-12 17:54:06

I'm planning to have a good time tonight, just in case confused

HUNTERF Thu 20-Dec-12 17:55:53

Hi glammanana

How will you pay your cards off if ther are no banks?.

Ana Thu 20-Dec-12 18:23:59

Does she look worried? grin

Nanado Thu 20-Dec-12 19:20:32

You mean all the bankers will go to.....The Other Place? Tee her! grin

Oh damn. 11.11am. I will have paid for my hair to be done by 10.30.

What a waste of time, energy and money. [tut]

gracesmum Thu 20-Dec-12 19:57:07

But you will look very glam at those Pearly Gatesgrin

POGS Thu 20-Dec-12 19:58:36


How very true I hadn't thought of that. smile

Suki Thu 20-Dec-12 20:03:54

Barrow, you are right. In fact, it is said that when someone did turn up with gold bars and dripping with bling, St Peter asked why he had brought paving and gravel with him! {fgrin}

Nanado Thu 20-Dec-12 20:13:01

Wrong type of brackets suki you need the straight-edged ones [ ] wink

Well, here is my take on the end of the current Mayan Long count:
It's my birthday on 22nd. What an amazing day for a birthday! It's the first day of a brand new era grin
22nd December is always an amazing day for a birthday though. It's when the days start getting longer again.
You could say I'm a bit of an optimist wink

I wish I had remembered about the end of the world and would not have cleaned the fridge and freezer out tonight. shock

Brendawymms Thu 20-Dec-12 22:05:32

I'm with you there I have cleaned fridge, freezer and oven ready for visitors now they won't be coming if the world ended. I could have left the dirt where it

annodomini Thu 20-Dec-12 22:05:40

At 11.11am, I will be sitting at the back-wash having my hair shampooed. I will enter the pearly gates with wet - but clean - hair. See you there... grin

glassortwo Thu 20-Dec-12 22:14:00

anno we will have a GN party at the gates... but we had better wait until we are inside or we will never make it grin

brenda me too!

Grannyeggs Thu 20-Dec-12 22:17:39

Hmm, I think I will go downstairs and finish up the mince pies, it'll seem such a waste if there is no one around to eat them tomorrow.hmm

Nanado Thu 20-Dec-12 23:01:32

What does one wear for the end of the world? I mean, do I get dressed up, full war paint, nails done, hair freshly washed, etc or do I dress for comfort?

annodomini Thu 20-Dec-12 23:47:54

glass will we be allowed to bring our broomsticks?

If I arrive at the Pearly Gates at 11 minutes past 11, I hope the Devil doesn't know I'm gone until at least 11.30. I may need some time to talk my way in...wink

I'm wearing my hospital knickers just in case I survive and go to some sort of a and e.

If I find myself at the pearly gates and Peter asks me if I was prepared I can say "Yes, I've got my proper knickers on."
