On Friday I found out that my Internet friend The Book Wheel had nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. (And yep, I found out on Friday, December 21 — maybe the world really did end? Hmm…) Anyway, I’m surprised and honored — I’m never sure how many people actually read my blog, so I was super excited to discover that I have at least one reader! (Hehe.)
In order to receive the award, I — and whoever I nominate who chooses to accept it — must follow the award’s rules.
- Post 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer 11 questions given by the blogger who nominated you

So it’s December 22, 2012. In fact, in many parts of the world, it’s already December 23. Obviously, the world didn’t end. Or it did, and the pre-apocalypse world was so shitty nothing changed after the world ended.
Either way, we’re all still here.
Not gonna lie, I’m a little disappointed about the lack of raining fire and brimstone. And about the lack of a phantom planet becoming an un-phantom. (How rude, Nibiru.)
Okay, okay, in all seriousness, I didn’t think the apocalypse was going to happen anyway. I figured we’d all still be here on December 22, and yep, here we are.
Unfortunately for me, though, this lack of apocalypse means I have to actually brave the mall to finish my Christmas shopping. Have you guys been in a mall lately? Have you been in a mall parking lot lately?
Yeah, exactly. I think I’d rather have the apocalypse.
In case I don’t make it out of the mall tomorrow, I want to wish you all a happy holiday season! All the best in 2013!
I know, I know, I’m a little early (or late, depending on which holiday you celebrate). But I wanted to wish everyone a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa, blessed Yule, and happy apocalypse day before I forgot to.
And yes, before you comment, I did, in fact, say happy apocalypse day. Sure, it happens to be the same day as Yule, but I think it’s getting more attention (not all of it positive, lol). Of course, I don’t think the world will actually end on the 21st, but just in case it does, I don’t want to be remiss in wishing people a happy apocalypse day. You know.
So the world won’t end on the 21st. But with all the evil, horrifying, and generally terrible things happening in the world, perhaps humanity needs a reset button? What do you think: would the world be better off with an apocalypse to reset the game clock so humanity can start over?
Some days, I don’t know.
Okay, and on that maudlin thought, I’m taking off. Well, for the day.
