Judgment Day

Since the world ends today, I'd be ticked if I had struggled to write something meaningful and it was lost in all that chaos.

I'm more of a heathen than a Christian, so my destruction is (apparently) assured.

So, instead I plan to kick back in the time that's left to me and swallow fresh, ripe, organic strawberries until the earth swallows me. That's my idea of rapture.

Thanks for all your comments and interest. It's been nice knowing you!

Try my macerated strawberries - I put the recipe up on my food column at the Since it's the last day (ahem), I'm adding a bit more of the liquor and topping with whipped cream. Now that's a real rapture!

Goodbye, It was nice knowing you too. Ms. Goofy and I are going to a new taco joint in Uptown Oakland to celebrate the end of the World. They have something called the Danger Dog on the menu. It is to bad you are scared of Oakland otherwise we would thowout an invite.

I'm really annoyed with Jack. After spending almost $300 on a long overdue trip to the grocery store yesterday, he THEN reminds me that the world is coming to an end this weekend, so we might not have needed all that food! He better hope that life goes on, so I didn't spend all that time in the store for nothing!!!!

On the other hand, worth living for.

I don't think the world actually ends until 21 October, it was just the 'rapture' yesterday! (Speaking from the future, we're all still here :D)
Strawberries go nicely with Cointreau,in case you were wondering!

Nancy, sounds like a good plan for the last day!

Chilebrown, be careful when you are driving through dangerous Richmond - to Danger Dog! You must have a death wish. :-)

Janie, don't worry - I am fully confident that Jack can easily consume $300 worth of groceries in the time that's left to him.

Cookiecrumb, the long strawberry season is one of the main reasons I moved to California.

Ms Mouse, that's two votes for strawberries and hooch. Must try it. I didn't read up much on the end of the world, so I didn't realize that there was more to the prophecy. October, huh? Well, that's more or less the end of the strawberry season here, anyway, so I guess I'll be willing to go by then. Are the raptured people already in heaven now? Funny that no one I know is missing...

Cookiecrumb, this is California - I'm sure there are late-bearing varieties you could still get into the ground.

Greg, I'm happy to hear you two are still among the living and I'll bet it was a GREAT day for a baseball game. Hope it was at the Giants' park. Who won?
