Oh my god, you guys. Last night, Ben and I were minding our own business, casually perusing the internet and watching Amazing Race on DVR. Ben looked up from his computer (because he usually trolls news sites while I am all about shopping or asking Facebook friends to join me on a random month of blogging) and said Hey, the president is addressing country in a half an hour.
On a Sunday?
Ben looked really freaked out and started furiously clicking between windows. My fingers started tingling and I thought of that scene in Titanic where the people are reading to their kids in bed as the boat sinks.
I, of course, assumed that a giant asteroid was hurtling toward the earth. I mean, duh-- it was the only logical conclusion. At least we bought lots of water this week to clean the fish tank was my first totally stupid thought.
My friend Sarah said she also thought asteroid.
In conclusion, I am a little on edge about 2012 and need to lay off the 90s-era disaster movies. Maybe should get some Xanax.
