arrived in my email this morning... unfortunately it's a bit of a long trip - to OZ... but i bet it's going be a riot!

As you may (or may not) know, followers of the Mayan Calendar believe that the world as we know it will end on 21st December 2012.

Therefore I have booked a table at the Balcony for 7:30pm on December 22nd, 2012 for a "Doomsday Survival" dinner to which you and your other half are cordially invited.

I know it's a long way in advance, but it's close to Xmas and I'm not planning to let you get away with "oh if only I'd had more notice", or "I just can't get a baby-sitter at this time of year" or any other lame excuse other than "I can't think of anything worse than joining you lot for dinner at the Balcony" (go on then, hurt my feelings!). Those of us in the hospitality industry will just have to tell guests they've GOT to arrive before 6:30pm - if you do it nicely and tell them why, they don't mind co-operating (no really!) give them the extra time in case they accidentally get lost.

Sooooo .... please write down time, date, place in your diary RIGHT NOW and then let me know you've done it so I can let them know final numbers. With luck we'll book out the whole place and have a giant private dinner party celebration - if that happens we may decide to all chuck some money into the "pot" and hire in some music - which I'll need to organise well in advance as well of course.

Naturally enough if the world DOES blow up on December 21st, you're excused <G>

cheers

I'm sure there'll be some Doomsday Survival dinners nearer to home, so don't waste your money! : )

Actually, it sounds like a good excuse for a party. Might have one!

Well mine's in December as well - so yay - we won't have to say we're another year older!

Don't worry threenorns - it's not going to happen. We'll both see our birthdays, and hopefully many more.

And at worst, at least you won't get any older.

:lol: Very true Bedford, but I think I'd rather gain a few years than be melted into oblivion. :shrug:
