I find this to be rather ironic–and fairly funny, in a cosmic way. Apparently on May 21st, Judgement Day began and the rapture occurred where God’s elect people were taken to heaven. (I’m still alive so I guess I am not one of God’s “elect.” The nuns were right about me). And on October 21st, 2011 (my 33rd birthday), the world will be destroyed by fire. As I read this on the Internet, the only thing that popped in my head was “MAJOR BIRTHDAY BASH!! AND I’M SERVING SMORES!!!”
Then as I let the news sink in, I started to wonder if this was why the numbers 10, 3 and 11 keep popping up in my daily life. I always look at my watch at 10:10, 10:11, 3:33, and 11:11. And at these times, I often hear the song “Waiting for the end to come.” Is the Universe telling me to plan for my 33rd Birthday–10/21 (2+1=3)/11?
Well, if that is what the Universe is telling me, I’m listening and obeying. I’m thinking an “End of the World” theme where we wear bright yellow shirts saying “End of the World,” we have a disaster movie marathon and sing karaoke to R.E.M.’s “It’s the end of the world as we know it” while making smores over a massive bonfire. Yep, I think this is going to be the best birthday party ever!
