Top 10 Reasons Why Anyone Would Look Forward to The End of Days

End of Days

This was the sunrise on the auspicious morning of The End of Days.  Did you hear that? Never mind. It was just my stomach rumbling.

Was it a surprise to you that the Mayans got it wrong? Hey. Look at the bright side. All of those dehydrated food packages you bought won’t go bad.

Doomsayers have been predicting the end of the world since it was in its infant stage. Every time a volcano erupted or the Earth shook they ran for cover. Isn’t that what Henny Penny squawked about? “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”

She should be wearing a pith helmet.

Why would anyone relish the idea of the world coming to an end?

#1. They can’t take another season of Dancing with the Stars.

I am not a fan either, but really, you could just turn off the TV.

#2. They won’t have to finish their Christmas shopping.

The real doomsday will come when you have nothing for your wife on Christmas morning.

#3. They can relate to this cat.

#4. They have taken Walking Dead a little too seriously and want to star in their own reality TV show.

#5. The idea of taking down all of those Christmas lights is overwhelming.

#6. They believe that the number 13 is unlucky and their compulsive nature won’t allow them to write 2013 on their checks.

Jeez! Who writes checks?

#7. Not having to worry about hair and makeup would be a welcome relief.

#8. They want to try out all of the Zombie Survival Gear they bought on Amazon.

There are 206 results!

#9. They have to be right all of the time and can’t wait to say, “I told you so.”

Come on. Where is the satisfaction in gloating if we all die?

#10. They have climbed Everest, won the Iron Man competition, and want to compete in the ultimate challenge.

Now you can face the challenge of surviving my blog in 2013!

  2. First of all, I have to say…how brave are YOU? To show us your bad hair day. I wouldn’t show mine on a double dare with powerball promises on top.
    You rock, no matter the hair day going. Secondly? Here’s my favorite Christmas song. For my favorite bad hair day blogger.

    • Thank you Cayman!
      You know that I have no shame. I actually love that photo of me! Hahaha!
      I wish Mariah would sing at our Church on Christmas Eve. How cool would that be????
      Merry Christmas!

  3. The Mayans apparently managed to come up with the mathematical concept of zero, more than two thousand years ago. Maybe they should’ve quit while they were ahead.

    Great post, Susie. Have a great Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    • I didn’t know that about the Mayans. Zero is so underrated…
      When I first heard about the fateful prediction I figured the artist just ran out of room…There were many people who went to Mayan ruins to be there for the end of the world. I think they were hoping for something similar to an Indiana Jones movie!

      Thanks so much! I am glad that I met you here in the blogosphere. I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a fabulous 2013!

  4. Too funny! Hey, thanks so much for the card, you are so talented! Happy Christmas!

  5. BAHAHAHAHAHA! I knew I shouldn’t have let the laundry pile up!

  6. Hilarious! Number 3 and 7 gave me chuckles :) Happy New World to you for 2013, Susie… look forward to taking the ride with you.

  7. haa and I am so with you on the stupid reality TV– enough already! Wild hair day–awesome photo. My hair looks like that every day

    • Since my last haircut, it is even worse if you can believe it! Hahaha! I have no shame…
      I was going to mention The Bachelor, but I always watch the first episode! I guess some poor girl does a back flip and lands on her head in the next season. I may skip that one. Ouch!
      Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  8. Those are good reasons, but you forgot a really important one, Susie. We won’t have to suffer the pain of Fringe coming to an end, sniff, sniff. :(
    :)

  9. Hey, it’s the 22nd and we’re still here. Talking about predictions, my grandmother was so certain that the year 2000 was totally going to mess up all our systems and leave the world without power and in financial ruin that she bought huge barrels of rice and beans, a bunch of bottled water, got a propane stove, paid off the house and converted all their investments to gold. Crazy, right? I guess if she had been right the family living near her would have been thankful. :D

    BTW – love that cat!

  10. 3 and 7 are my favorites. I have a friend who believed so much the world was going to end, she called out from work. All that happened, she missed a day’s pay. Great post Susie!

    • Thanks Brian!
      This was fun to write. It kinda came together fast over coffee yesterday morning.
      That is funny about your co-worker. I have a friend who said she had been invited to a party, but was staying home because of the predictions. Danny and I went out to dinner!
      Happy holidays to you Brian!

  11. Oh well – now that the world hasn’t ended I guess we just have to plod on – haha!

  12. I’ll gladly accept the challenge! And by the way, I love the number 13. It is one of my favorites! Black cats too! And don’t forgot Fridays. :-) I’m sure the Mayans thought we’d be living in space by now and no one would use their dumb calendar. :-)
    Love the hair pic! HA!

  13. Julie Catherine

    LOL! I woke up from my nap this afternoon and was still here! Hahaha! Love the crazy photo of you, and #9’s “I told you so” made me laugh out loud! :D

  14. Sigh….I waited all day for the world to end so that I wouldn’t have to clean the cat’s litter box….I give up…

  15. Would End of Days mean end to blogs? If so, I’ll vote against it. When is the election for this one? ;)

  17. Thank goodness those Mayans were wrong – I’m not ready to go out just yet. ;-) Incidentally, Henny Penny was one of the first stories I remember my mother reading to me when I was little. I remember wondering how the whole sky could fall, it seemed awfully big.
    Also – you look pretty good even with bad hair!! :-)

    • Thanks Mary! You are very kind! My wild hair days have gotten more frequent since my last haircut…
      I am glad they were wrong too. I think we can all bravely march right into 2013!
      Loved Henny Penny when I was little. Her little character came to mind when I started writing this!
      Merry Christmas to you!

  18. Nice one! This post got me smiling!

  19. #2, #3 and #7 were my favorites! Hahaha!

  20. Uuuuhhhhh…, was that “end of days” or the end of the day. That sunset pic confused me – but that’s easily done these days. Oh…, I think I got it now. Maybe they don’t want to see anymore political commercials, or reality tv shows, or cop/lawyer shows, Aaaahhh! I’m tired of all of it – I’m goin’ fishin’.

  21. I’m sitting, waiting for the apocalypse. Do you have an exact time? I’m stocked up and ready. I’ve gotten no responses for a well-read, intelligent, attractive woman over 35 to share time in the bunker.

  22. EllieAnn

    I love your reference to Henny Penny! It’s a story for our times for sure. :)

    • “Run for your lives!!!! Oh never mind….”
      It seems like ever since Y2K there have been a rise in end of he world predictions. It is amazing how the Mayans put this date on the map so long ago… They just ran out of space!

  23. Very funny! That cat kills me every time…hahaha!

  24. Ha … that was pretty funny. Yeah I can’t handle another dancing with the not-so-stars competition … I just can’t. And the hair and make-up pick ha…too funny :) Brave Susie. Brave.

  25. heh!!
    I like Dancing With the Stars.. I FORCE Steve to watch it all the time..:)
    I like Zombies.. I really do..:)
    HUGGGGGGGGGGG

    • Walking Dead has a HUGE following. I used to love DWTS, but I can’t listen to their singers attempt those cover songs anymore… They slaughter the music just like zombies!
      Thanks Linda and Merry Christmas!

  26. I won’t have to bother having my facial hair waxed ever again.

  27. Great Post – ha! I hope to be doing something FUN when the time comes:) Happy Friday!

  28. Are we thrown into a remote jungle area with only an iPad, wireless connection, of course, and a bottle of wine to survive your blog in 2013? Or can we risk it from the comfort of our living rooms?

  29. Funny, funny, funny. I laughed so hard I fell to pieces…oops I hope I didn’t turn into a zombie–Yikes!
    Really, great post!

  30. #11 – they can’t think of any pithy comments to leave at the end of this post.
    *dons pith helmet*
