What people think about the end....

Danielle, I, Jono and Shari went to the plaza tonight to shoot some video for our upcoming Omega intensive. The idea was to get the thoughts of passersby on "the end of the world". We only got a few interviews in before it began to storm. My favorite was the woman who thought the end of the world had something to do with Jesus coming back, but had nothing to do with a literal antiChrist and who didn't want to be around to see that "beast with all the eyes" (her hand motions to this were probably more amusing than anything!). We'll go back out to Westport tomorrow and find some more folks to chat with. Should be fun - particularly because it will be 06-06-06 and there will a buzz no doubt.

Speaking of 06-06-06, did I mention that I will be 36 tomorrow? How in the world did I get to be 36? I've gotten birthday phone calls and emails and my new kindred-spirit-friend Kari came over tonight and gave me a "Birthday Breakfast Basket" -- how cool is that (except that we are in the middle of the GBF!!)?!?!!! It was loaded with fun goodies - organic milk, yummy OJ, flavored coffee and best of all Groovy Grahams! How did she know about Groovy Grahams?? How fun. Now I just have to find a way to keep the grubby little paws of my monkeys off the Groovy Grahams until Thursday. Maybe I will hide them in the Raisin Bran box -- yeah, that's the ticket!

I think it was highly prophetic that a storm came when you were asking people if they know "THE" storm is coming....

Well happy birthday!!

You share it with our son, Ben (and I imagine a few other people ;-) )who, incidentally is 6. 6 on 06 06 06. Can you imagine some of the comments?

Well, It's 8.49am this side of the pond on 060606, and so far, at least, the world hasn't ended. But I guess in theory it can't end until every time zone is on the same day, or some people would have their world end on 05 06 06, or even 07 06 06, and somehow that just wouldn't be the same......

I read the trick about the Raisin Bran, mom. I like Raisin Bran. I was wondering why it tasted unusual this morning. Unusualy enough like Groovy Grahams! I dont even like Groovy Grahams.
