A giant cruise ship is headed toward Earth. Yep. It’s on the internet.

Today at 3;59 CST, a gianormic asteroid will “pass” by Earth on its way to some planet party.

I’m no astrophysicist, but It looks to me like the green ball is going to touch the blue ball.  I would think that two giant balls brushing against each other would be of concern.  That’s just me.

Get this, the name of the asteroid is the 1998 QE2.  The QE2 happens to be the name of an ocean liner and while the asteroid is not technically named after this ocean liner (it followed some science naming system based on the date and order of discovery), it’s certainly an eerie coincidence.  Remind you of anything, Whovians?   Holy Gallifrey, Batman.  I have a strange feeling that the “asteroid” probably looks something like this:

I’m hoping David Tennant has this under control.   If he doesn’t, I really dropped the ball in getting the word out.  I was going to get this posted a few days ago but I got all sick, AGAIN – UGH – no worries, I got a super powered, long lasting cortisone shot on Tuesday and it finally kicked in yesterday.

You had time to warn us yesterday?!  True, I should have posted this yesterday but something awesome happened.  My best friend since the age of 11 went into labor.  Her first baby.  It’s a girl.  I spent the day as update central, passing along information via group message and texts.  There were 30 people from all over the country in our virtual waiting room on Facebook and you could feel the love and excitement beaming through the web.  It was really incredible.  We all chatted and eagerly awaited the arrival of Julie Jr. (that name probably won’t stick) until 2 a.m. and continued with congratulations and cheers until 4.  She’s just getting her start today so I can’t post something about a death cruise plummeting into Earth.  Nope.  Not today.

But just because I can’t write about some doom and gloom scenario shouldn’t keep you from having your fun.  You have 3 hours, what are you going to do with it?  I want to hear some doozies, please!!


American German – language lesson #66 (freaky)

I’ll post the remaining lessons on German swear words later today.  I promise.  Swear even.  I’ve been icky sick, y’all.



  1. That’s NINE cruise ships heading for Earth…the bugger’s HUGE.

      Holy crap! I read the stats and thought, “yeah, that’s big” – huge understatement

  2. Don’t worry, I’m sure The Doctor will take care of everything 🙂

  3. Glad I am late enough that this already passed. Congrats to your best friend on her girl. My neighbor worked on the QE2 for 20 years. He was on the cruise ship one, not the asteroid.

  4. Er…So the asteroid didn’t hit. So I kidnapped Nathan Fillion and held him hostage in my cellar for nothing??
    I’m getting fed up with all these restraining orders. *sigh*

  5. Dammit, Lily! You had Fillion all along?!?



    Seriously, though…I’m glad I’m just catching up on this now. Had I seen it when I had only 3 hours…? I may have done some pretty bad things and landed my ass in jail. Obviously I wouldn’t have gotten to Fillion…but not for lack of trying!
