Today is supposedly the last day for all of us - the end of the world. The silly story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but then moved to Dec 21, 2012. It is estimated that 15% of our population is buying this story. I guess even it doesn't happen there is always an opportunity for an extension and the same 15% people will believe there is the next date.
If you really believe in this, you should attend the End of the World Party at Village Underground. It is the perfect doomsday event with less eating and more drinking and dancing. No one will exchange phone numbers as there is no point for obvious reasons. There’ll be live DJs, great music, a Last Wish room and a countdown so you can keep track of your impending finale. Tickets will cost £4 and make sure you use credit card.
Idea Couture hosted our Christmas party a day before the end of the world just in case it happens people will still have time to post their photos on Facebook to share with friends. The fact is that the Mayans never predicted the end of the world and people don’t know they more than 20 calendars and this one finishes a cycle of 5,200 years and the new one begins on Saturday. So technically speaking Saturday is a good day for personal reinvention as it is the start of another new cycle.

If the world does end, it is probably not December, and I love how it's December and no one even cares about the end of the world anymore. I'd better to back to writing my strategy plan for 2013, if the world doesn’t end in the next 6 hours, I have a PPT deliverable.
