It's the end of the world...

Okay, so by the end of the day, we will all be completely sick of all the apocalypse jokes, but we have to tell them anyway. Chances are, if you are reading this, the world continues to turn, and the ridiculous predictions about the world ending on 12/21/12 are inaccurate. That's okay. I don't think anyone is truly upset by this revelation.

However, it did get me thinking about what the end of the world would mean. Probably lots of horribleness. But if we skip that part and think about what we want our "lasts" to be, I think that topic is a lot more entertaining.

Last meal?
This question has always stumped me. There are so many delicious meals to choose from! I would probably be happy with any meal that had carbs and cheese. I would also want a really nice glass of red wine and a chocolate buttercream cupcake form Magnolia Bakery in NYC.

Last activity?
Probably anything that involved being with my family. If a giant asteroid were to hit the earth, I'd want to be with my family when it happens.

Last vacation?
Egypt! When I was a kid, I used to be obsessed with archeology and dreamed of going on digs in Egypt to discover ancient mummies and explore the pyramids. I haven't done any traveling in Africa before, and I think it would be a lot of fun to live out my childhood dream by at least seeing the pyramids. And riding a camel. There has to be a camel.

Last book?
My gut instinct was to say that I would re-read The Great Gatsby, but then I thought that I would probably want to re-read A Wrinkle in Time, as well. So I'm cheating and saying that I would re-read both at the same time. :)

Last words?
"I love you."

What other lasts would you want if you knew the world was ending?
