By my watch, there are 12 days until the apocalypse. I haven't started my preparations yet, but I've spent some time tonight mulling over what I need to. Here are my 12 days of Apocalypse, Part 1. Part 2 will follow on Monday:
12) Get a pedicure. I figure if I've gotta go before my time, my feet ought to look good.
11) Rent 2012 starring John Cusack. Maybe there's something I can learn, such as learning how to take an airplane off when the ground's collapsing around me and there is no place to land and I've got a limited amount of gas. Danny Glover plays the President in this film, so you know there will be some scenes I'll be memorizing.
10) File a Freedom of Information Act to find out the kind and amount of secret herbs and spices there are in KFC's coating.
9) Send condolence letters to the people I was going to gift exchange with from Dec. 22-31, along with a bottle of dish soap, courtesy of Ashley since she happens to have large stocks of it--all courtesy of her coupon preoccupation.
8) I've always wanted to go to a large city in Europe where they allow street performers and people doing card tricks and stuff so I could make duct tape wallets for everyone. I don't do crafts except for this and they're usually a crowd pleaser.
7) Get a meeting with the people who designed the Big-10 logo that currently has an "11" in relief in the letters because there were 11 teams in the conference. Now they have to hide "13" because of the conference expansion. I really just want to find a way to get my social security number hidden when you spell my full name out.
