Depending on where you live, the world could already be gone to hell in a hand basket. But if you're still here, there's still much to talk about.
Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping discovered the May 21 doomsday date by decoding the bible, and his message is everywhere. Billboards, ads on TV, every news network, and even on Facebook. Yesterday, I received an invitation to the official Post Rapture Party. His prophecy of fire and brimstone is impossible to escape. The other day, the news featured a woman who knew about the massive earthquake, along with the five months of horror in store for those 97% who were NOT selected to get into heaven. She said, "...I want people to get the message. I don't want anybody's blood on my hands. JUDGMENT DAY FOLKS!"
If that's the case, what have I been worrying about? Graduate school won't exist after Saturday, so forget studying! Pay my bills? Maybe I should give that money away? Even better, burn it! And while I'm at it, I'll have the best (and last) meal possible tonight just before 6pm Pacific Time (judgement time, according to Mr. Camping). I'll take the juicy roasted chicken that comes right from my oven. That goes perfectly with a roasted sweet potato topped with my husband's guacamole along with good bottle of wine while watching the last sunset of my life.
Some friends have shared their best meals. Interesting that some are still healthy! Share yours too.
