I was left behind!!! Check in if you were too!
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 03:58 PM by Clark2008
It's now 4:55 p.m. on the East Coast (Tennessee, to be more precise) on "Rapture Day" 8/3/06. and, thus far, I have not been Raptured.

No one I know has been Raptured.

I haven't seen any flying people, either!!! :wow:

Check in here if you've been Left Behind!

(P.S. I was really hoping I wouldn't have to, you know, PAY for my new house).

1. I hope I get left behind.
I could use the clothes, a car, a house and a job market that is a little easier.

Cindy Lou & Jim Get Raptured......a cautionary tale


All through the McMansion there has been a super-charged atmosphere for weeks, as the family gets ready for their big trip.. Cindy cannot tear herself from the TV. Fox News is sending her "signals"..It's all falling into place.. It's TIME to get ready..The anticipation is so great that the whole family is almost in danger of being mistaken for Shakers..

Sometimes it seems as if there is too much to do, to ever get ready, but then this trip requires no packing (all worldly goods will be left behind)...but Jim has faithfully been washing and waxing the cars..(cleanliness IS next to Godliness, after all)

Cindy Lou still has Consuela dust all the treasures and wax the antique furniture.

The best part of the whole anticipation is that Cindy Lou has finally been able to give up that darned daily trip to the gym. She wonders aloud sometimes, if her gym-buddies miss her. (Jesus loves her just as she is). Of course while the pre-Rapture time passes, there's no need to pass up all those "forbidden fruits"...and she's not talking about APPLES..

Gluttony is a sin, but even Jesus will surely be in favor of the family savoring the last few bits of "worldly goods", so the Domino's guy has been getting a real workout, and those "all-you-can-eat" places are a treasure too (especially the dessert table), now that dieting is not necessary. Those expensive size 2's can just hang there for all eternity.. Cindy Lou won't be needing them when she meets Jesus.

Jim is having a "wardrobe" quandary though, and has faithfully been researching the exact time-frame of the rapture itself.. You see, he is wondering if he should swallow those little pills as he gets raptured, because if he puts them in his pockets, they will get left behind. He's hoping that things "up there" will be so perfect that the little pills won't be necessary for his issues "down there", but the Bible does say "Always Be Prepared"...(or.. that was the boy scouts manual.)... anyway he's thinking that if he swallows them really fast, he and Cindy Lou can truly "christen" their new digs up there with Jesus. Surely Jesus will be distracted at SOME point, what with all the fellow Christians arriving en masse.. Perhaps they can sneak off to a secluded place and have some privacy. Rumor has it that privacy still might exist "up there"..

The children are have a few difficulties preparing for their journey. Sixteen year old Tiffani swears it's because she's rather attached to her charge cards, and her Morris Minor, but unbeknownst to the parents, it's really because her secret boyfriend just happens to be named Carlos, and being Catholic, he's being left behind. This will come as good news to his Mom, Consuela.

Jacob Lucas (aged 18, and a freshman in college) is not all that happy to leave his friends. He's seriously thinking of converting to the Baha'i faith just in case. He says he will, but he may not actually have time, since Mom & Dad are pretty sure this whole thing's going down pretty soon. Jake has always been a procrastintor, so he still carries around the unread flyers about the faith. He may get around to reading them after the Beer Bash this weekend.

One good thing about the rapture is that Mom & Dad have given him full use of the credit cards, so he's having a really great time driving around in the Hummer, and filling it up with premium..(no one's going to actually have to pay the bill anyway). His friends are enjoying the fact that Jake's paying no matter where they go or how much the tab is.

Both kids really want to stay behind, especially if it means that Mom & Dad WON'T be staying, but in their heart of hearts they know they too will probably end up raptured too, so they plan on having as much fun as they can while they can.





whooooooosh.....

Cindy Lou looks around and is a bit startled to see some blank stares, where she expected smiles...but then, dental work apparently gets left behind too.. It's rather stuffy, and smells faintly of fish sauce and Shalimar perfume. There are quite a few bald men (toupees get left too), but at least blonde women are not extinct here..

She and her family take cuts to speed up their turn to get to the front of the line..

Finally it's their turn..

Well THAT was a big surprise..

It turns out that the Rapture is not what they expected. It's really about attonement, and there's been someone keeping score. Apparently being nice to only the people you LIKE, is not that much of a virtue, and not paying your fair share is not acceptable either.The rapture seems to be the protestant version of Purgatory..and Cindy Lou's not a happy camper.. The scene from that old movie keeps running through her mind.. "IT'S A COOKBOOK"!!

So, for eternity they get to defy gravity, BUT, they must look down for all eternity and see what they have left behind..they must watch as Carlos drives that shiny Hummer, and checks the time on Jim's Rolex..Cindy has to watch as Consuela puts her FEET up on that Chippendale table while she and her family wait for their catered meal to arrive. She has to watch Consuela interview housekeepers..She has to watch as Consuela pours her expensive perfume (Freedom Perfume) into the bath water.. She has to watch as Consuela puts her precious shitzu, Mitzi-Pitzi on the back porch.

The "left behinders" are very tired.. They have spent days just picking shit up.. Its been a veritable "Easter Egg Hunt"..with Faberge eggs..and gems...and cell phones dancing on concrete..and designer clothes..and those damned little blue pills.. The neighborhood dogs are going CRAZY after mistaking them for doggy treats... All over the place people are saying THANK YOU JESUS FOR TAKING THESE ASSHOLES OFF OUR HANDS..as they survey their new digs, and toodle around on less crowded freeways.

PS..God is a Divorced Gay Black Woman named Edith...she wears a purple, beaded caftan with Mardi Gras beads..and red flip-flops...Jesus is half black-half Chinese

primary. I just made a pitcher of diaquiri's (pineapple rum, fresh pineapple and banana so I can try to pass it off as a health food drink) - I keep waiting so that I can send them off with something cool and refreshing. :evilgrin: So far, nothing.

46. Well, to quote Huckleberry Finn
"Now she had got a start, and she went on and told me all about the good place. She said all a body would have to do there was to go around all day long with a harp and sing, forever and ever. So I didn't think much of it. But I never said so. I asked her if she reckoned Tom Sawyer would go there, and she said not by a considerable sight. I was glad about that, because I wanted him and me to be together."

Cheers to all my left behind friends!

They say its today because 8/3 is the anniversary of the destruction of the temple or some such rot.

49. The rapture DID happen!
Only god was REALLY sneaky. Check it out:

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson said on Thursday the wave of scorching temperatures across the United States has converted him into a believer in global warming."
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsarticle.aspx?type=dom...

Now obviously the REAL Pat Robertson would NEVER have said such a thing, so here is OBVIOUSLY what happened:

Pat and all the other good Christians have been raptured, but God in his inifinite sneakiness (remember the dinosaur bones he planted to test us? Sneaky God!) replaced the raptured faithful with decent human beings who are actually able to seek reasonable answers based on evidence!

See its all so OBVIOUS! I bet there is even a quote from the Bible that can be twisted to prove it! Did I say twisted? I mean "revealed". Yeah thats what I mean.

Anyway, the rapture happened and you can't prove otherwise!

58. What is this "porn" that you speak of?
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 05:30 PM by Crunchy Frog
I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the term. The bandwidth is awesome though. O8)

Edit: I can still apparently make typos up here. :(

52. I thought "SparklyJr" got raptured.
I went into her room, and her clothes were lying there, on the floor -- a sure sign somebody's been lifted from the bounds of earth and taken up to Heaven!

Then I remembered I was in SparklyJr's room. There are always clothes on the floor in there.

(Sorry, sweetie -- just a joke! :loveya:)

56. No abandoned cars on the road,
so I guess there are a lot who were left behind. Darn, I was hoping to get a new car.

60. Still here.
Was this supposed to be the day? I don't know any fundies, so I don't know if they're still around Anchorage or not.

61. My neighbor went to heaven and all I got was his minivan.
Is acetone a good way to remove bumper stickers?

71. Actually I'm the only person to have been raptured all you other
suckers are stuck typing into DU on your own dime. I'm doin' this shit via my born-again. I'm totally possessing someone right now. The spirit world is the shit. 70 virgins of both genders all of them bisexual. The roads are made of fluffy white swedish down mattresses and everything works via coop up here.

Sorry.

But I've been raptured. I tried to tell you atheism was the way to go. But no one listened.

72. I've been visiting parishioners all afternoon
and, as far as I can tell, my whole church has been left behind. Which is what my fundy colleagues told me would happen. But at least they won't be here to say they told me so!

Wait...my secretary just called to ask for tomorrow as a vacation day to take her kids to the beach. So, I guess they didn't make it, either.

We have the place to ourselves!!

75. I saw one (just one) Unidentified Flying Object this afternoon!
I saw another one last month (June 24), another one last summer, and a couple of UFOs in April 1973.

Aside from that (all were "encounters of the first kind"), I never saw any human bodies floating up in the air, and moving toward any of 'em (including today!). :party:

77. As far as I know the entire world has been Left Behind
It appears the Rapture is still on hold. Darn, I'm really wanting to be free of the fundies.

79. 27 minutes and counting on the east coast
And the only flying up in the air I've done is because of the beer I'm drinking while watching some Dems in my very Republican county win some seats on a local level (it's a start)! :bounce:

Of course, according to Republicans, a Democratic candidate winning means the Rapture IS upon us. :evilgrin:

80. I'm still here
But I think I'm going to bed. If I'm left behind, do I still have to go to jury duty on Monday?
