MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the
week with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)
Okay lovies – I’m backkkk. I took a much needed vacation in lovely Florida with a couple of good friends. We celebrated our last night on earth by eating lots of crab legs dunked in butta, smoking cigars, drinking beer and doing rapture shots.
Yes I’m 2 days late. But hell that means I didn’t rapture with the rest of the people that went to heaven on Saturday night at 6:00pm. And what 6:00pm time zone was it supposed to happen in anywho? Actually I was supposed to be on an airplane flying at the time. Good thing it didn’t happen with me on the plane JUST in case I wasn’t rappin’ up to heaven and the pilot who was gonna land my plane did rapture.
So in honor of our still being here in the good ole world, let’s have a rapture drink! Also since you’re not allowed to eat anything you want now because you ate anything you wanted during the last week of your life and gained 10 pounds…Break out the broccoli.

FROM NATIONAL WORLD NEWS MAY 23, 2011
OAKLAND, Calif. — California preacher Harold Camping said Monday his prophecy that the world would end was off by five months because Judgment Day actually will come on October 21.
Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before the Earth was destroyed, said he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife. His independent ministry, Family Radio International, spent millions — some of it from donations made by followers — on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the Judgment Day message.
But Camping said that he’s now realized the apocalypse will come five months after May 21, the original date he predicted. He had earlier said Oct. 21 was when the globe would be consumed by a fireball.
It’s not the first time the independent Christian radio host has been forced to explain when his prediction didn’t come to pass. He also predicted the Apocalypse would come in 1994, but said it didn’t happen then because of a mathematical error.
Rather than give his normal daily broadcast on Monday, Camping made a special statement before the press at the Oakland headquarters of the media empire that has broadcast his message. His show, “Open Forum,” has for months headlined his doomsday message via the group’s radio stations, TV channels, satellite broadcasts and website.
When the Rapture didn’t arrive Saturday, crestfallen followers began turning their attention to more earthly concerns.
Jeff Hopkins had figured the gas money he spent driving back and forth from Long Island to New York City would be worth it, as long as people could see the ominous sign atop his car warning that the End of the World was nigh.
“I’ve been mocked and scoffed and cursed at and I’ve been through a lot with this lighted sign on top of my car,” said Hopkins, 52, a former television producer who lives in Great River, NY. “I was doing what I’ve been instructed to do through the Bible, but now I’ve been stymied. It’s like getting slapped in the face.”
Apocalyptic thinking has always been part of American religious life and popular culture. Teachings about the end of the world vary dramatically — even within faith traditions — about how they will occur.
Still, the overwhelming majority of Christians reject the idea that the exact date or time of Jesus’ return can be predicted.
Tim LaHaye, co-author of the best-selling “Left Behind” novels about the end times, recently called Camping’s prediction “not only bizarre but 100 percent wrong!” He cited the bible verse Matthew 24:36, ‘but about that day or hour no one knows” except God.
“While it may be in the near future, many signs of our times certainly indicate so, but anyone who thinks they ‘know’ the day and the hour is flat out wrong,” LaHaye wrote on his Web site, leftbehind.com.
In 2009, the nonprofit Family Radio reported in IRS filings that it received $18.3 million in donations, and had assets of more than $104 million, including $34 million in stocks or other publicly traded securities.
