My mom told me that the world is going to end in 2012. Something about crystal skulls (Mom, have you been watching Indiana Jones? No, but it is based on truth, there is this book... because we know movies are just made up, but if it is in a book, well, must be true!).
Apparently some people believe the world will actually end, while others claim a spiritual event of great significance shall occur. I got no further clarification from my mom on what this event will entail. She tells me that the ancient Aztecs/Incas/Mayans (my mom is a bit sketchy on the details) made or found these crystal skulls, which somehow or other will facilitate this event in 2012. How she did not tell me. My mom never seems to care about logistics, she just looks forward to the big day.
Well, seeing as the end of the world is quite a "big day", I feel I should mark it down for future reference. Only, I don't have a calendar or a year planner for 2012. Gee, I can't even plan my life one hour in advance, never mind 4 years in advance! So to avoid this momentous time biting me on the bum I am recording it here, on this blog.Of course, in 2012 I will not remember that I wrote this post, and so will not read it, and will be asleep while the skulls take over the world. But don't say I didn't warn you, whoever you are (who am I kidding, not even my gran would read the drivel I write).
I hope that I will remember, so I can stand at my window, singing "it's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine". I have been waiting for an opportune moment to do this ever since Y2K. I learned all the words, and there are many, and they make no sense, and then, nothing happened! I read this book where this guy had a theory that after Y2K Gorbachev would take over the world and become the "world Tzar"...but that is another story.
