The beginning

Some people worry about the world coming to an end tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I am not one of those people.

The idea of the end of the world, or survival against the odds and apocalypctic mayhem - it sounds a bit weird but it fills me with a morbid kind of interest.

Sometimes I even daydream about ways I might survive the apocalypse as I drift off to sleep at night.
And I already have a couple of survival plans.

Maybe normal people don't do this. But the Mayan calendar catastrophe has given me something real to focus my attention on.

And the first thing I think about is of course, my loved ones.
It might sound cheesy but what's the good of surviving the apocalypse if your dearest aren't with you? And where do you want to spend the last day if it was today?

Of course, fortunately, odds are nothing will happen on Friday.

It may be that the world's scientists are right and we really have nothing to fear.

Maybe Friday will be just like any other day.

Or maybe people will just have their personal little end of the world.

But if something still happens don't hesitate to come by.

I might have room for one more person in my ark.
