Well. Fuck. The world didn't end.

That must mean I am still on your ignore list.

4. There's still time.

The exact moment of the Solstice is 11:11 Greenwich Time, which is 3:11 a.m. here in California.

Adjust the time zone for your area to find out the correct time. It's not for a while yet.

11. how interesting

In all of the blah blah blah about December 21, I never once heard anybody either state or question the exact time to expect the drama to begin.

That's really interesting--thanks!

24. Drama or not.

That was the exact time the earth's orbit reached maximal axial tilt, causing the return of progressive increase of daylight hours and shortening of dark hours. This is why the winter solstice has been termed the "return of the sun."

All the "end of the world" stuff this year is special to this solstice.

5. Someone said, the calendar is based on the solstice

So, we have to wait until 11:21am GMT for it to officially switch over. So, three hours to go! Hold on to your butts!

10. The day is not over yet.

Does today need to be over before the end of the world? Or was the end supposed to happen at midnight?

17. Locally, the solstice is at 6:12 AM (YSMV*), and I've still got

three bags of potato chips, 1/2 quart of French Onion dip, and two six-packs of Guinness left. I'd better get cracking...

Interesting sidenote: TEOTWAWKI will occur during the first 1/2 hour of Morning Joe. Somehow, that seems fitting. If they had a sense of humor, they'd dress up as zombies and sing the Official TEOTWAWKI song:

TEEEEE-OH-TWAWKI is here!
Let's all be of good cheer!
The end is here,
So let's have another beer --
TEEEEE-OH-TWAWKI is here!


...and then cut the network feed for about ten seconds.



*YSMV = Your Solstice May Vary. Since the entire fabric of space and time is being ripped asunder while we're being sucked into a black hole (full of zombies), your local time may differ.

20. I would like to apologize to Carl in accounting about the shirt comment. I would like to apologize..

to Judy in IT - you probably don't have an apartment that is wall to wall mattresses.
I would like to apologize to Tom in operations - I shouldn't have said "Metro" so sarcastically.
I would like to apologize to Sue in leasing about the "4 out of 5 dentists" remark.

....whew this is going to be a tough day at work.
