Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday!  If you’re reading this, Congratulations—you survived The Rapture!

Okay, so I didn’t really think that was going to happen, but I have had a buttload of fun this week because of the will it/won’t it? factor.

First, I’ve got quotes:

“If the Apocalypse starts tomorrow morning, I won’t be coming in to work.”
~Daniel McDonald

“It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.” ~R.E.M.

“If the Apocalypse comes, beep me!”
~Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Second, I’ve got funnies…that I should have posted on Friday, but I’m really trying to work up enthusiasm for HER LITTLE SECRET, HIS HIDDEN HEIR…& if y’all would just pre-order the dang thing already, I could stop…so I shall post them now:

:ROFL Sorry, but that’s about as much happy as I can handle for one day, so I’m going to make that my single gratitude item for this week:

PhotobucketI AM HAPPY the Rapture was a hoax because I’ve got way too much to do for the world to end right now…but it sure did give us some amusing jokes & opportunities for sarcasm, which you know I love. :spikey

How about you?  Anything other than “I survived the Zombie Apocalypse” that you’d like to share?


And now for the winners of this week’s giveaways…

First up, our HeidiBetts.com/WIPs and Chains Scavenger Hunt winner.  Sadly, this didn’t get quite the response I’d been hoping for, but those of you who played along still did very, very well. :umbrella   And one Darling did slightly better than anyone else…

    Congrats to all the winners. Glad we survived the Apocalypse. More time to read. :babybook

    • Heidi says:

      I definitely like that idea! :babybook Of course, I kept thinking, “I don’t have time for an Apocalypse, I’m on deadline!” :argh

  2. Hollie says:

    Well Thank You for giving me another reason to be grateful today!! :bigwow
    and I am still here…no zombies came to the door and I still have what little brain I had to start with! :ROFL

    • Heidi says:

      You deserved it, Hollie…you spotted a couple things nobody else mentioned, but that *were* new “home improvements.” :wink

      And Rapture or not, I think the zombies *did* get my brain. :bloody

    OMG, I want each of those t-shirts (plus the cartoon printed on one!) :ROFL

    And yes, I’m glad the Rapture ruptured because I’ve got so much I want to do! Since the next End-of-the-World isn’t for another 19 months or so, let’s take that time to make Mistress Heidi proud, shall we? :mistress

    • Heidi says:

      We should have done a Rapture Top 10 list…reasons we were looking forward to the Rapture & then reasons we hoped it didn’t happen.

      I mean, if the Big R had hit, we could have put off paying all those pesky credit card bills…I could forget about my looming deadline…we wouldn’t have to wonder for the umpteenth time what to make for dinner…

      On the other hand, I have too much to do to stop for an Apocalypse. And I would miss my kitties…& The Dungeon…& which direction I’m headed when The End really comes is still a big question mark :que …

      But still…it would have been a fun list. :bart

      • Pamela Cayne says:

        I felt like I didn’t have to clean until I knew if I’d been Raptured or not. It was actually one of the good points of the whole End of the World thing–no vacuuming or dusting.

        • Heidi says:

          I KNOW! I mean, really, if you’ve only got a few hours left on this earth, do you really want to spend them dusting or doing dishes? No way!

          Alas, it’s back to the old grind now that we know we aren’t going to be Ruptured. :argh

  4. Kathleen Ann Gallagher says:


    All the buzz allowed for a couple of days where the people at work did not complain about the rain. I got the question,” What are you doing on your last night?, so many times, I ignored it. If I was asked one more time, i was going to scream! :argh

    • Heidi says:

      Did you really? Did people *really* think that was going to happen? :bigwow

      I kinda think that when the world ends, we’ll get some advance notice. You know, like in Dawn of the Dead or Resident Evil…it really will get Apocalypty before the Big Bang. :kittylaugh
