One Bewildered Idiot

I cleaned the house on Saturday to R.E.M.'s The End of the World as We Know It. If it was the end of the world, I was determined to be jolly about it.

Mystified, bewildered, and fucking clueless.

This rapture stuff is so preposterous. I've always been amazed that people are taken in by it, especially now, after so many failed predictions. My reflections... http://ow.ly/50fQb

I remind myself that the Lowest Common Denominator is a very large number. So if Camping can just keep a low profile he can churn it again sometime for another few million bucks. If he's still alive.

A and I were driving down the highway Saturday rocking to that same song (it's the only REM song I can tolerate by the way).

I had hoped for the rapture because shopping would have been much more pleasant without all those extra people around. *sigh*

Hugs from A and I.

I can not believe that ANYONE would fall for such bunk.

But that is one fun song to end the world with - not sure I'd want to go out cleaning the damn house but it's nice that the house is clean seeing as it wasn't the end of the world.

We are descendants of herbivorous apes. They did not seem alarmed at the end of the world proclamations, so neither was I.

I forgot all about it! Christos wrote on Facebook "So much for the afterlife, it's just like the old one!" Then I remembered.

Hope you're good. Love you xx

I'm not sure that selection for the Rapture was based on tidiness, SB :-D

Still - you ended up with a tidy house. Come over and tidy mine. It's a bomb-site.

Well, the world didn't end per se. But your house is clean. And that should make you feel fine.
