A great birthday or the end of the world as we know it.

I’m not sure which.

My husband’s birthday is 12/12/12.  So we’re spending a week, all of us, at a beach house.  Should be fun – games every night.  Good food, wine, maybe some bourbon (Jaye).  Just the family.

Of course according to the popular press’s interpretation of the Mayan Calendar the world will come to an end on 12/21/12.  Sort of the inverse of 12/12/12.

According to what I’ve read, the Mayan Calendar doesn’t actually predict the end of the world.  The Mayans believed in the end of an era or particular age, and the beginning of a new era, or age.

So maybe just the end of the world as we know it.  Which is my second favorite R.E.M song, the first being Losing My Religion.

Anyway, I’ll be back on the 15th.  If there’s wifi at the beach house I’ll keep in touch, otherwise I guess it’ll be a Julia blackout for a while.

So party on, dudes!
