The world ends this coming Friday.

So what are you planning to do in your last week on earth?

(PS I need a bit of fluff....)

Then we have DHs work dinner on that Friday night!!

Starting a tattoo removal process though seems kind of pointless now. Having DD's 6 month immunizations (also kind of pointless if the world is ending).

I hope to sign up a contract for a house once finance is approved (hopefully). So at least we can celebrate for like 4 days before the world ends. Nothing worse that having to stress my way through the last few days on earth. My DD has a dentist appointment on Thursday... seems not worthwhile putting her through it!

Ah crap. I shouldn't have bothered with the Christmas shopping and I'm not going to make 39.

Devo.

On the upside, it doesn't matter that I am unemployed! Tounge1.gif

Well I'll certainly stop stressing about the fact that DH is unemployed.   original.gif

I'm planning to spend my nominally last day on earth buying small goods and fancy olives and cheese for Christmas. I'm assuming I will get to eat them on the day.. wink.gif

Will spend tomorrow Christmas shopping, Y'know, just in case we survive.  Poor form to turn up Christmas day and tell the fams we got them nothing, cause we thought they'd be dead.

Will also buy DH a birthday pressie.  Cause if the last day is the 21st - it really does depend which time zone, cause if it's the US 21st, then we will have to celebrate DH's birthday for a few minutes before we cark it. Again, poor form not to have a present for him, then having to explain that I thought he would be dead.

Oh yeah and hopefully my very late x 2 parcels from Brands Exclusive will arrive before the day. Because I'd like to get to wear my new dresses at least once!!

I will be getting ready to go on holiday, packing bags and the car. We're leaving on Saturday so all my work might be for nothing.

Should have planned the holiday 1 week earlier  mellow.gif

Having work breakup morning tea at DH's work.

Home for DS nap time (mean mummy making him nap on the last day ever!)

Grocery shopping, to buy food, you know just in case we don't all die.

Housework, so at least I can be proud of the state of it when the earth implodes.

Wash my hair?  Sorry end of the world, but I can't make it because I am washing my hair.

Yep that's it.

Celebrating my daughter's 3rd birthday - which, I believe, may be the reason that the Mayans put and end to calendar making...

And in case it doesn't come to a grinding halt, I will still need to prepare for the party on the Saturday...

My dad runs his own business using a small digger machine to do things like dig holes, level house sites, spread soil, etc. A few weeks ago he got a job from a lady to dig some inground compost heap holes. He was a bit confused about exactly what she wanted but went to the job anyway. She showed him where she wanted them, and what size. No worries, Dad digs them.

Once he was finished she paid him and told him that they were actually food bunker holes for when the apocalypse comes. He was very surprised! She explained it all to him about how the mountain she lives near will break the tsunami that comes and help to shield her from radiation too. She is planning to fill drums with food and bury them in the holes Dad had just dug. There was more but I can't remember it now. Apparently there are a few people with the same ideas as her living in that area.

Dad told her that if she had just been honest and said what the holes were for he would have put them in a better position where they wouldn't be subject to water run off, and run off from the septic tank trench.

She has now contacted Dad again to dig more holes for her for her apocalypse preparation...

Paddlepop I would have found it so damn hard not to laugh or ask if she was joking.

Kudos for your dad for not laughing at her and offering suggestions about position of said holes

Lol paddlepop, she sounds like she is off that doomsday program on Foxtel.

Dad didn't laugh at her while he was talking to her. She had just paid about $800 in cash for the job. That is a very good customer, and one to keep for repeat business.

However he sure laughed when he was telling me about her! He had trouble talking because he was laughing so much. I'm curious about what he has found out from the work he did for her on Thursday. As long as she pays on time, he'll dig as many holes as she wants!
