    My cable/internet company, you know, the one that bought out or was bought out by nbc, has been providing such bad service over the past week, that last night when I couldn’t log on once again, they refused to set up an appointment for a home service call. They didn’t even call back for their usual customer service review. This morning, I thought I’d see whether I had internet service and it took many minutes to log on.
    The Mayans were right and c*mc@st has thrown in the towel ahead of schedule.
    BTW: don’t see “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”.

  2. I dunno where I’ll be when the world ends, but I guess it won’t really matter will it?

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

      Although this one is more appropriate for Obamacalypse

      Turning and turning in the widening gyre
      The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
      The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
      The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

      Surely some revelation is at hand;
      Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
      The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
      When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
      Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
      A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
      A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
      Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
      Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
      The darkness drops again; but now I know
      That twenty centuries of stony sleep
      Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
      And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
      Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    Well, isn’t this the cheery thread this morning?

    Happy Friday! Everyone!

    LOL, it must be raining in California! If I remember right, that is pretty much the end of the world!

    No seriously, there’s some big storms out in the Pacific right now. I think San Francisco is under alert. Up here we’ve got high tides and torrential rain, as usual. It’s kind of a bummer because the Christmas lights are under water and I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t turn them on. I have a deer that lights up that the wind knocked over last night. I was thinking about just sticking an arrow in him.

    I’m thinking bout climbing Mt. Everest. I’d probably escape the end of the world. But with no technology (cell phones, internetz) and no alcohol, life would suck. I’d need hunting tips from Sarah Palin to survive. Jeez, if I was a prog, that would really suck.

  8. elliesmom says:

    The question is do I have to shop for and wrap presents? Can I wait until the 21st to see?

    • leslie says:

      Great questions!! I just stopped at the Christmas market at the train terminal and bought myself some neat jewelry, just in case. If the world doesn’t end, I’ll have some sweet accessories. If it does, I’ll go out in style. 🙂

    • myiq2xu says:

      My question is do I pay bills or party hardy?

    Won $4 in the Powerball lottery….not quite what I was hoping for but it’ll buy me a beer….

    Whatever happened to Hiliary, a person I once believed in, donated to and made phone calls for her. If Bill thinks Bronco bama with his history of use’em and throw them under the bus is going to help with her campaign debt one has to wonder about possible brain farts. Here’s Hillary promoting Bronco’s uberness.

  11. piper says:

    Although it is warmer here than usual still a depressing cloudy day. Plan to go to the dump to dump the last of the yard waste, pick up library book, grab space on the couch and watch videos. Just read the Zucker wants to inject more passion into CNN – laughable.

  12. Ugh- just came off a week with a client- he got a job as a cart pusher at WalMart- I am fucking exhausted and my back is killing me (he practically ran me down with the carts- and ran over my feet twice) Jeebus- who knew cart pushers worked so damn hard. My back can’t do the standing on my feet 9 hours a day, outside, in the cold. My doc is gonna be pissed off at me lol. Put myself back about six months by working four days.
    Right now if the world ended I would say thanks be to god! No more bills to worry about. And no more 9 hour days!

    • Somebody says:

      PMM cart pushers at Walmart have quotas. I remember reading somewhere that a woman was fired for not having enough carts in the line of carts she was pushing. They require 50 something 57 I think and she was 5 or 6 carts short of the quota. Apparently she had bad knees and said she just couldn’t manage those couple of extra carts. So yes, man handling such a large number of carts repeatedly could wear you out.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Ever get a shopping cart that goes “clunk, clunk, clunk” as you push it? That is caused by flat spots on the wheels.

        Pushing those long lines of carts is what causes flat spots on the wheels. As they shove carts sideways to make turns the wheels don’t turn so they rub on the pavement – it’s like using a grinder on them.

      • LOL Must have been too many accidents- max carts on the cart pusher now is 20. And it is evil hard work- and of course has been very cold here all week. And our WalMart is at the top of a hill- so the wind is almost constant too.

    • John Denney says:

      I’ve thought for a long time that there should just be a cart at each parking spot. A customer pulls into the parking spot, wheels that cart into the store, loads it up, pushes it back to his car, unloads it, and leaves it at that parking spot for the next person.

    Before the world comes to an end, do you think AMC would let us know what happens to Walt?

  14. HELENK says:

    talk about bad luck just think if you were one of the winners of the big power ball, you finally get money and the world ends. now that is just wrong.

  15. HELENK says:

    this does not sound like a place anyone with kids would want to move to.

    A *feel good* story:

    A California woman live-tweeted a break-in by her neighborhood sneak-thief – as she attacked the burglar with bear spray and a samurai sword and drove him off.

    Sonya Yu, a San Francisco photographer, learned that the thief had been roaming her neighborhood stealing packages from doorsteps. He had allegedly stolen $1,000 worth of deliveries from Miss Yu herself.

    Top 2012 Baby Names

    Interesting peek at our current culture. I gave my kids names that would look good on their doctor/lawyer office door or make them look smart on a McDonald’s nametag 😀

    before the end of the world , will congress please get rid to the TSA.
    an agency crazy with power tells congress ” your not the boss of me”

  21. myiq2xu says:

    I made out like a bandit today.

    I turned in my bottles and cans and got $23 dollars. Then I went to two thrift shops and got 3 used books and 10 used VHS movies for $11. I stopped by the taco truck on my way home and got a carne asada burrito supreme for lunch. Now I’m eating the burrito and watching For Love of the Game.

    I still have beer money left over.

    Tin Foil Friday Link Drop:

    “WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says all the necessary physical infrastructure for absolute totalitarianism through the internet is ready. He told RT that the question now is whether the turnkey process that already started will go all the way.”

  23. catarina says:

    He sure is a creepy dude.

    He’s so right about the data collection though. It’s sinister.

    • myiq2xu says:

      The right is paranoid about socialism. The left is paranoid about fascism.

      I have nightmares about being chased by angry sockpuppets.

      • yttik says:

        Is the left really paranoid about fascism? They used to be but lately they sure seem to admire some of the rotten characters that promoted it. It’s like the left no longer understands the difference between socialism and fascism. I don’t think the right ever has.

        • myiq2xu says:

          You expect rational thought and consistency?

          “Socialist” and “fascist” are like La Llorona and El Cucuy – they are boogie men, not real people.

      • DandyTiger says:

        What happens when you stop using one of your sock puppets? Be afraid, very afraid.

  24. DIL is in labor- having a glass of wine now and then heading over to the hospital. This is a first baby for DIL and my daughter- so it is going to be a long long night lol.
    This is the first grandbaby that I will actually get to be there. The boys are military grandkids- and so were born at various bases far far away- and the grand daughter was born on Cape Cod- and here I was in PA.
    They tell me it’s supposed to be a girl.

  25. HELENK says:

    just finished reading The Racketeer by John Grisham. a good book.
    keeps you interested in finding out the why and will it work
