I'm not trying to make light of the situation in Japan. I'm so sorry for those people and their loss of life and livelihood. Here is a link to the Red Cross if you are able to donate.
Please note, though, that the rest of this post includes snarking about disaster scenarios and may offend those who are feeling sensitive: reader discretion is advised!
I am in the midst of this gchat conversation with one of my besties, Sarah:
what is going on in the world? specifically japan????
it's crazy overall
makes me definitely not want to move anywhere near the pacific ocean
also makes me sure the apocalypse is night
D.H.: well now it seems like earthquakes come with tsunamis
which are basically meaner hurricanes
apparently earth hates us
which, let's face it
sarah: yeah, I'd hate us too
now moving to my own private island is less appealing
unless of course my island home is at an elevation of at least 2000 feet
it would be awesome.
maybe an underground, waterproof bunker could work?
but then you would drown and that would be super sad
about people fearing the end of the world in 2012
yeah, no joke
there are realtors just for those!
i can't believe people are buying bunkers!
like, i'm nuts, for sure
but here's the thing - if the world is coming to an end, like for real
i'd rather just expire quickly myself than fight it out in an underground bunker
that is awesome
there isn't any water here -- it is a desert!!!!
anyone who survives is going to just die of thirst
totally not cool
it's like, if you're going to have to fight for survival
then f*** it!
why wouldn't you just be like, PEEACE OUT B*TCHES!!! and just face an immediate death rather than the potential for a drawn out one that is relatively unpredictable
sarah: haha, well it might be fun in the northwest, but I'd only do it places where they still have widllife and natural water.... and the midwest doesn't!!!! if you are going to be a survivalist, they should at least choose the right area!!
no point in struggling in a non sustainable area... that is when I just hole up and find something fun to do for the last few days ;)
i'd make some mac and cheese and hug fatty until the certain end arrived
so on the same page with that
though I guess I'd be hugging my dog
assuming you can get to me
i'll make extra mac and cheese
as I pass all the silly ppl trying to survive on my way to boston, i'd say no thanks, I am just heading to a friends to eat mac and cheese and laugh at the world for our last few days
D.H.: they'll all be terrified and you'll be like, whatevs we're watching Supernatural and eating dairy
Dear readers, I ask of you - what would you do in the event of a disaster of epic proportions? Run, fight, or join me for mac and cheese? Please RSVP if so - I need to know how much to make. Let me know what you would do in the comments!
