I'm a Great Prophet for Doomsday
A young Vixen, back in the 6th grade had a boyfriend who came to school one day proclaiming his big brother had said the world was going to end at 3:00 that day. The teacher replied, "I guess that means no homework today!" I still remember this day because I was in my "scared to death of God and the resurrection" phase and I went home and prayed that God wouldn't kill my family just yet and I made my dog stay inside just in case (I was also confused about the whole thing, obviously). I also remember my reply to the boyfriend, "The world isn't going to end today, it's going to end December 12, 2012." The reply came out of nowhere and earned a place in my journal (which I've read since then and laughed about). He asked me how I knew that I said that I just did. We went on with our day and the world didn't end (obviously).
Why am I bringing a 6th grade vision up? Apparently some other people have the same vision. They say December 21, 2012 (I can have one more birthday...actually, at that point I don't want any more. If it's going to end, I'd prefer it end while I'm a year younger). Twenty-first, 12th, eh. It's really not a big difference.
Considering my "luck" with Tarot, it's kind of freaky that I actually said that. Yeah, in 8 years I'll read this entry and laugh but I wonder where I got the number. I don't recall reading anything with that date, but I'm sure I did and it was somehow buried in my psyche. I was a big sci-fi fan even back then.
All I know is, if there is a God and what one of the links says is true about what is to happen, he better not knock me up and call it a "virgin" birth just because I haven't had sex this millennia. If I wanted to get knocked up, I would do it on my own, thank you very much. If you don't want the next Messiah to be left on a porch or at a hospital, you better think twice than making an apathetic pagan your "Mary."

The Bush Documents
Well, I've been watching a lot of news reports over the past few days about the Bush documents that were forged and broadcast and one of the main things that's been said over and over is, "Why didn't CBS know the documents were fake when every blog in the country did?"
I just want to point out that the bloggers on id.com not only didn't realize the documents were fake but also didn't care. Furthermore, at least one of us didn't even realize such documents had been in the press. What idiots actually watch Dan Rather to get "news" anyway? I prefer to watch Tom Brokaw as he talks about the incident. You can tell he's thinking, "Suck this Rather!"
Why is it that we didn't know? Why is it that the fact that they were written in Microsoft Word not apparent to three self-procalaimed geeks? Is it just because we hate Microsoft, Windows and Office in general? "I hadn't eaten a carrot in several days," says Bard on the very issue. Yes, I must agree with my blog buddy. We should all, in fact, eat more carrots.
It is a sad world indeed when we don't eat enough carrots, Word documents confuse Dan Rather and Bush is actually right about something.

I want an iPod! If you want one too, for free, just follow this link:
All you have to do is sign up for an offer (the Blockbuster and Netscape Internet ones are fairly painless and free) and refer 5 friends. If/when I get five (you can comment if you follow the link and complete an offer so I'll know if I have 5), LadyX needs some too.
You can also get a free Flay Screen, but I don't really care too much. I really want the iPod, but if you really want the TV:
Shameless promotion over!
