"Taking Care of Business" (January version)

Well, I hate to admit it, but I occasionally make mistakes!  (Gasps all around!!)  Yes, it's true.  When the mistakes build up or there is one that is egregious, I must, then, put up a post for "taking care of business". 

As you might have guessed, I have a big ol' mistake to correct (hangs head despondently).  Don't know how I managed it but I gave the incorrect date for the end of the world!!  OH HORRORS!

It's good news really, at least if you were depending on me for information on this rather important announcement.  Okay, are you ready?  Sit down, grab on to something, here it comes....

The end of the world is supposed to occur in December, 2012 NOT December, 2010!!!  See, I told you it was good news!  Two more years for everyone!  Wheeeee!

"What??", you say.  You haven't heard anything about the world ending in either 2010 or 2012??   Well, you did if you've been a faithful reader of this space. 

Back on December 3, in my "Bits and Pieces" posting, I blithely stated that according to the Ancient Mayan Calendar the end of the world was predicted for some time in December 2010.  

Well, no, that's wrong.  According to the Mayans that awesome event is due two years later, in December 2012. 

I knew better, I just kept typing it wrong!!  I think it had to do with my getting reved up to typing 2010 instead of 2009 (that sounds like a good excuse, huh?)  Maybe it was that I should get my glasses checked?  Or maybe it was pure laziness....not taking the time to check the facts;
mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

Any mistake I normally make is usually due to poor proofing reading and perhaps that's true this time as well.  It's just that, this is such an important matter (or not, if you don't think the Mayans actually knew what they were talking about), I'd really hate to think that any of my readers were out there preparing themselves for the end of the world two years too soon!  I'd sure be standing here with egg on my face. 

On second thought, don't pay any attention to those old Mayans at all.  If they were so smart, how come you don't see many Mayans hangin' around any more?   I'm just sayin'.....


  1. Whew...2 more years. ;) Of course, I'm hoping for many more than that!

  2. Dang it! I canceled a vacation and signed a 3-year contract on something figuring "what the heck - none of us will be here!"

    Gotta run and see if I can get out of that contract.....

  3. Oh darn it! I was afraid this would happen....unhhh, you're not going to try to sue me for breach of ancient promises (or something) are you??? :)

  4. I am so glad I just found your blog recently. Well, I'm glad I found your blog, but I'm glad it wasn't before you mis-quoted the prediction! I would never have taken down all of those Christmas decorations if I'd thought the world was going to end before the first of the year! You are so entertaining! Thanks for giving me a smile. laurie

  5. You are so very welcome!! My sense of humor is quirky, at best! Glad to have you visit....drop in anytime!
