Well the Rapture has come and fizzled. The hype leading up to this non-event by individuals of all beliefs/non-beliefs and the media has been rather amusing to me. And yesterday was the crescendo as people on Facebook seem to have decided not to go out and enjoy the lovely weather but rather stay home and make comments on their computers! (Yes – even I fell prey to this.)
Now it is time for the post-Rapturephoria as even more T-Shirts and mugs get made by more people looking to make a quick buck. There certainly were enough of them doing it pre-Rapture; why not continue with what was, for them, a good thing?
And for those of you with a great sense of humor and over the top neighbors – why not try this as it is still early enough today. Get some of your old clothing and shoes and place them on sidewalks and lawns around your city and town. Then hide and watch people’s reactions as they start wondering about IF the Rapture actually did happen. You know there are going to be some people that think they should have been chosen and who, seeing the empty clothing, will have great reactions to view!
Me – I’m enjoying myself; sipping on a cuppa and watching the comments from Facebook.
Last night I got together with a small group of friends for a post-Rapture, pre-Birthday (it’s today), any-Anniversary celebration. Being with good friends trumps a cataclysmic event anytime! Really – it does even if you keep checking to see if you are still there!
We gathered at the bar/restaurant of the local Crowne Plaza. Good food; good company - what else do you need for a relaxing evening?
Today I’ll go out for breakfast later on with a friend and with Mom – if she’s up to it and then tonight for dinner. Overall a rather quiet and relaxing day.
And, while I would have loved to take the day off from writing, instead I’ll just post this short brief update because I have committed to making it to the finish line of the Blogathon and we are almost there!
Well it is Sunday and yesterday my Mom, being nostalgic, informed me that I was born on a Sunday!
Another year gone by; time for some reflection on what I did and did not accomplish and then onwards and upwards to enjoy life!
