Happy birthday, Mom! See you soon!

If you need a handy countdown to the end of the world according to a Mayan calendar, fear not. Apparently for my town, the end of the world will happen at 6 a.m. Friday, when we will be totally unprepared. Oh, well. (Link via Chuck, who found it at the awesome Time and Date website.)

Since it’s also the winter solstice, there will be non-apocalyptic celebrations – in Vancouver and Brighton, they’ll be gadding about with lanterns to light the darkness. (Brighton’s festival is called “Burning the Clocks,” though, so I suppose it could get apocalyptic.)

The mystery of the package addressed to Indiana Jones has been solved!
