If it's nearly the end of the world as we know it

then what about my Groupons? According to the fine print, they're good until February. Seems we should have received some sort of alert; I would have cashed in my Midas tire rotation last week at the latest. Now for sure there's a line around the block.

I'm not one for corporate conspiracy theories, but something's rotten in the state of Denmark.

  1. What time tomorrow? I'd planned to go to a movie. I don't want to get half way through it ...

  2. Hmm, Just like a Norvegian to make some comment about the Danes like that.

  3. Don't you hate when that happens, Wayne? Just when you get to the good part, the world ends.

  4. I'm glad we have a dependable local gal to alert us to these kind of important events. Every community should have at least one, and preferably no more than that - I hate it when it's too many. Thanks for the info, KB!

    Btw, if we're still around on Sat, what's the next end of, or beginning?

  5. Oh gosh, we just renewed our Huntington membership, I would be so annoyed to have wasted that money. I hope all experiments have been stopped at CERN for the next few days: there's a real possibility they could accidentally set the entire Universe into reverse by creating antimatter.

  6. Damn, I wish I'd used all those United miles I have accumulated.

    Good bye, all.

  8. Call me a cock-eyed optimist, but I paid the gas bill.

  9. Do you have a Groupon for a good restaurant? If you time it right, it could be your last supper.

  10. Ding-dong. Who's calling? Your 50 percent off on overnighted Ikea pickled herring steeped in red wine vinegar, that's who.

    One down, three Groupons to go. No pressure; breathe, just breathe.

  11. Damn. The Christmas pudding won't be ready in time.

  12. I try to avoid speaking in lyrics, but after the Groupon dinner we'd be saying:

    We at the food, we drank the wine
    Everybody having a good time
    Except you
    You were talking about the end of the world.

  13. "Seems we should have received some sort of alert"--excuse me, I don't even have a TV and I've known about this for ages. Where the hell have you been?

  14. Not to point any fingers, but if a certain someone had mentioned the end of the world on 12/21 half as many times as she's mentioned the fact she no longer watches television, then perhaps I would have made timely use of this Super King Cheese and Deli coupon.

    If we're lucky enough to be breathing tomorrow, guess who is not getting an almond cheddar ball for Christmas?

  15. All present and accounted for? We still get to open presents and pay bills. YAY!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. And do our taxes, YAY!

    Or...while I'm not sure what the end of the world rules are, seems it might have until 11:59 pm, PST, to get the job done.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You raise an interesting issue. Would it be PST?

  18. My power went out at exactly midnight Mayan time (1AM our time), and my reaction was, "F***. The Mayans were right. And my generator isn't due to be installed until after the first."

  19. Only twelve hours to go til the end of doomsday...
    Party tonight at midnight???

    ReplyDelete
  20. Damn straight, Doris. The Danes are in cahoots with the Mayans.

    Guess they got the last laugh, Marjie. Jean, yes, real time.

    Just a few more hours to use all those frequent flier miles, Chieftess.

  21. As far as I'm concerned, in less than 2 weeks (1-2-13, 2 B Xact), this whole stuff such as cleaning out the bk accts & filling up the credit cards conspiracy will be the end of the world. And it will be the end of the old world & the start of a new - same as the old.

    So, Eat, Drink, & Merry cuz it's about to end in days. Then, on 1/2/13 you'll wonder what happened? What was all the fuss about?! Nothing will have changed except your bk & cr cd stmts.

    The End

  23. Hello, yup this post is actually pleasant and I

    thanks.
    Look at my site - lifestyle

  24. I used up all my Groupons but, damn, I paid two bills yesterday - I'm not looking at the new one until tomorrow, just in case.

  25. I've read that animals have a second sense about these things. However, our cat seems totally unconcerned; she's sprawled on the sofa, making small snoring sounds.
    Guess I'd better pay the bills....

  26. Still here and lived to talk about it. But, I didn't get as much shopping in as I thought and have some groupons hanging around . .. looks like they survived the apocalypse!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh no!!! I think the world really is ending!!!

    Ohhhhh....that's just the fireworks for Night of Lights!!!

  28. I meant to tell Katie I love that song.

    Chieftess, don't do that; you scared me half to death.

    Ms M & Paula, I may have mentioned this before, but once my dogs were enrolled in a UC program investigating whether strange behavior in dogs might signal an earthquake. But the strange behavior checklist was just daily business as usual for my guys, so they dropped us.

  29. Haha! So much for what I read about animals! Was Albert part of the test?

  31. Karin,
    Sorry, I could not leave a comment because I don't know what is Groupons...

    Thank you so much for your visiting on my blog and nice comments. I appreciate it a lot!
    Cheers!

  32. The final catastrophe: I've used Groupon about three times and I don't feel any richer. Maybe the Mayans got the month wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, clearly the world didn't end, because the spammers are still here... I'm ever so relieved. I too have Groupons. Spammers and Groupons. The stuff of life. Phew.
