The End of the World

Okay, I know that just 24 hours ago I said I was taking a break, but then I made that half-hearted comment about the possibility of the world ending on Saturday and made plans with a friend for Sushi Sunday with the disclaimer about the having to cancel if the world ends. For the record, I'm really craving sushi, so I hope the world doesn't end on Saturday.

Also, for the record, I don't actually believe that the world will end on Saturday, but just in case the Judgment Day is upon us, I thought it was important to help my readers through it in style - that is to say cocktails and a soundtrack.

Disclaimer: LMS always recommends you drink responsibly, but I suppose that if the world is truly collapsing around you in the most literal sense, then you can do whatever you please. But unless you personally see the Four Horseman, I'd really suggest you double check that world ending thing.

End of the World Cocktail
(from 1001
1/2 oz. high proof rum
1/2 oz. whiskey
1/2 oz. vodka

Serve warm in a shot glass. No garnish necessary.

LMS recommends using only top-shelf liquor here. If ever there were an excuse to avoid the cheap stuff, the apocalypse is it.

Now onto the music...

The End by The Doors

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley

Closing Time by Semisonic

Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult

We'll All Go Together When We Go by Tom Lehrer

The End by The Beatles

It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by REM

Goodbye Stranger by Supertramp

We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel

So Long, Farewell from The Sound of Music

If the end really is upon us in the next 24 to 48 hours, then I can honestly say I've enjoyed the ride for almost 40 years, I've been blessed to have a life full of people I love and who love me in return, and I have much to be grateful for, including each of my Little Merry Sunshine readers.

If the world isn't ending, I'll be back over the weekend.


  1. This is just insane. The world is never gonna end, alright? It is just the people who will die and born again. Planet Earth is never gonna stop spinning or never gonna explode. So please stop spreading such insensible concepts.

  2. Thanks for your comment, but as I said above in paragraph two, I do not actually think the world is going to end this weekend.

  3. If I'm listening to Billy Joel, it really is the end of the world as we know it.

    Do you know what's really insane? Using bad grammar in one's comments. Now that's a cyber crime.
