    I wince every time this comes on the news. Red-headed boy tends to get anxious about things like the end of the world, and we have been doing a lot of reassuring lately. It didn’t stop him getting up at 11:30pm last night saying he couldn’t sleep because he was worried about the world ending.

    We had fun over at Man Boobz today after I said “the world is ending t”. There was speculation about whether I’d been raptured or rescued by the Doctor. :)

    angharad, I hope red-headed boy is feeling better today! Here’s hoping he ends up with some skeptical innoculation against future media hype/panic now that he’s seen it come to nothing.

  4. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    My hairdresser told me today a woman cancelled her appointment because the world was ending. For reals. So now we’re wondering if she’ll ring up all embarassed to make a new appointment, or (more likely) be so embarassed she’ll have to find a new hairdresser.

    He seems to have gotten over it, Tigtog, and I’m hoping for skeptical innoculation too. I guess now he can go back to fretting about NAPLAN (he’s starting Yr 3 next year)
