Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless

This weekend was about doing nothing at all. After a crazy Saturday night in the club, the Sunday was mostly about hanging home, watching TV, listening to music and relaxing.

Saturday afternoon we went to see a movie at the cinema. 2012. A week after premiere the reservation list was still full. We finally got to see it. Great cast, great stunnings and special effects, great story.

The film briefly references Mayanism, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, and the 2012 phenomenon in its portrayal of cataclysmic events unfolding in the year 2012. Due to solar flare bombardment the Earth's core begins heating up at an unprecedented rate. This results in a series of Doomsday event scenarios plunging the world into chaos, such as California falling into the Pacific Ocean, the eruption of the Yellowstone National Park caldera, shifting of the continents by crustal displacement, and Megatsunami impacts along every coast line on the Earth. The film centers around an ensemble cast of characters as they narrowly escape multiple catastrophes in an effort to reach ships in the Himalayas, along with scientists and governments of the world who are attempting to save as many lives as they can before the disasters.

Very pessimistic events yet very optimistic at the end, like all the movies of this type. So some of us still have a chance to survive. God bless America for its heroes, for saving the day, for saving the human kind and for giving us such great movies!

I don't even want to think about such a real scenery. If this is meant to happen I prefer to live my life slowly and ignorant and happy in my pretty little universe.

I'd rather think about the winter holidays than of the end of the world, and I am looking forward to see Jim Carrey's "A Christmas Carol".
