Well it's after lunch time here in Australia and nothing horrible has happened. I'm just staying inside away from the heat in Perth. At least they have downgraded the temp on Christmas day from 41C to 38C. Still enough to warrant a slippery slide in Mum's backyard for us all (yes, yes, slippery slides are not just for kids! smile )

Lones, I think you should be on Peruvian time. smile It is supposed to happen at 11:11pm, but not sure if that takes Daylight Savings into account.

We still have a few hours to go, so if you have any unfinished quizzes in the pipeline, I suggest that you get them into the queue VERY quickly!

Guess that'll be 10:11pm tomorrow night here (just under 23 hours away), since Peru is one hour ahead of me, and if you figure DST, which Peru doesn't observe, it'd be 9:11pm Dallas time.

So...4:11am 12/22/12 London, 3:11pm 12/22/12 Sydney.

I hope it doesn't happen. Can you imagine the lines in heaven and hell. I hate queues and I hate the heat.

We have people all over the world on here, so we should set up an alarm system. If anyone sees ANYTHING out of the ordinary, please take a picture and post it in Photo-a-Day forum...

The Mayans are from Mexico not Peru so that gains everyone an extra hour. Use it wisely.

After watching Ghost many times, it occurred to me that Patrick Swayze wore the same clothes over and over again once he was a ghost. Does that mean that whatever you're wearing when you go is what you wear when you're a ghost? Hmmmm.. well as I head off to work's Xmas party in about half an hour, if the world does end tonight at least I'll be in a posh frock with my hair done and my favourite jewels on. I hate my shoes though. They're so uncomfortable I'd hate to be stuck wearing them for eternity! wink

Yes Tizza that is interesting. I wonder if hell for Moslem suicide bombers is 72 prostitutes and no money.

Well, it's 00:27 on December 22nd, I'm back from the party in one piece, and the world as we know it is still here! The local broadsheet hasn't reported the end of the Earth so I think we'll be ok.. laugh

Winged being wearing a Fedora with a Press Pass stuck in the brim: So, Gabriel, have you got a few minutes to spare for some questions?
Gabriel: I'm not really in the mood right now.
Reporter: I understand your frustration but our readers would like to know why their relatives never arrived. Only you know the story. How about it, please?
Gabriel: Okay but this has to be brief. The Big Guy needs His report ASAP.
Reporter: What was your first sign things weren't going right?
Gabriel: Well, I planned a 'warm up toot' in the Antarctic but my lips got stuck to the frozen brass of the Final Trumpet.
Reporter: Like in "The Christmas Story"?
Gabriel: This has nothing to do with Sonny's Story.
Reporter: Sorry, please continue.
Gabriel: With my injured lips I couldn't hit the high notes like I'd have needed to so I went with a Pneumatic air horn attachment they sell at the Heavenly Goods Superstore.
Reporter: That should have made things all the more easy for you. What went wrong?
Gabriel: They've established air and noise quality levels as output from such devices and, had I blown the horn, I would have been breaking their laws. Not an example to be setting by a representative of the Almighty.
Reporter: What were your options then?
Gabriel: Well, I considered subcontracting the job.
Reporter: That would be a big bit of work for some lucky, may I say, Devil.
Gabriel: No not him. Heaven's got zoning laws against any of his work being accepted.
Reporter: Who then?
Gabriel: I phoned Grim Reaper, Inc. Asked if his crew of Death, Hades and the other Horsemen might be available and he said that the size of the job was way too big for them. They're only experienced in one at a time type deals. Hades mentioned that since pennies aren't made much anymore, there may not be enough for the ferryman to be paid, That's a Union job you know and they have to be paid the contracted rate.
Reporter: So, that's when you...
Gabriel: Yeah, I called the thing off and have scheduled a planning conference for next year to get a better handle on the thing.
Reporter: Thanks for your time and better get those lips tended too. They look sore.

I did! I saw it on the internet, so thought it HAD to be true. Now I am doubting that nice man in Nigeria that wants to be my friend and give me lots of money.
