No Roundup Because I Thought The Earth Might End

I thought the world was going to end, but it turns out that it probably isn’t.  Wheeew.  Though I was so certain that tomorrow was it for mankind that I stopped rounding up posts.  Didn’t make a lot of sense to highlight great blogs no one would have time to read.

Okay, maybe I just heard about the world ending thing today from the Washington Post, but it sounded like a better excuse than saying Rosh Hashanah derailed my week.  Between the cooking and the cleaning and the services, I didn’t have time to write up the stuff I bookmarked.  So you’re getting a non-post, and we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program next week.

Provided the world doesn’t end before that.

So… when is the next world ending prediction?

The way this week has gone, tomorrow seems likely. Or acceptable. Haven’t decided which yet.

I think celebrating the new year is a very good excuse. Blessings to you and your family.

Happy new year. Though I was with you on believing things might end based on a certain person’s mad tweeting.

According to my son, the Earth WAS ending this morning, because he couldn’t have a certain toy at preschool that he has claimed as his own. Never mind the fact that we hadn’t even left for school yet and he didn’t actually know if he could or could not play with it yet. (insert eye roll)

I missed the memo on the end of world. Now that I know, it seems

probable, given the crazy talk on TV and twitter.

Sorry for the incomplete message. My phone rang and somehow I pushed a wrong button.

Anyway, what was going through my brain were the words of a very old song from The Kingston Trio. I can’t recall the name of the song but the applicable words were, “…man’s been endowed with a mushroom shaped cloud, and someday, someone will set the spark off and we will all be blown away”. I think we’re getting close.

Hmm, so I could miss my oral surgery appointment on Monday? And with 2 toddlers as world leaders, it makes sense, although I hadn’t heard anything about the world ending until my husband mentioned it 2 nights ago. Apparently, I live in a bubble. I’m okay with that. Happy New Year. Sounds like a good reason to take a break to me. 🙂

Shana Tovah to you! I am glad the world didn’t end, but jeezum that article is wacky. It reminded me of the movie Melancholia, which has really stuck in my head (and given me nightmares). I’m glad Nasa debunked it. 🙂 Sadly I think the end of the world is likelier to come from within rather than some apocalyptic revelatory event… The news just scares me lately.

According to my cab driver yesterday, it’s ending any second now because we’re ingesting the anxious energy of animals when we eat meat. So problem solved: we can all become vegans or just start eating super chill animals like sloths. I hope that you enjoyed the holiday with family or friends!

Sounds like a good week for the blog to have a holiday too! 🙂

Shanah tovah!

Shana tova!

I agree with Jess (above) that unfortunately, the end is more likely to come from within.
