I'm thinking of the computer voice in the movie Alien counting down time, "This civilization will POSSIBLY self-destruct in six days..."

A radio station in Los Angeles called KROC used to play this hilarious tape after doing the Emergency Broadcast Test. "This has been a test of the emergency broadcast system. If this had been real emergency you would have heard this, [people in the back round start yelling and screaming in terror] OWN MY GOD! WHERE ALL GOING TO DIE! OH NO..."

get lots of sleep this week. If the worst happens you will need every ounce of energy you have. Best of luck.

If the worst happens, you won't need any energy because you will be dead. .

Happy Birthday, Mara! May you be as wise and delightful an Elder in the new world as you have been in this one.

It's HAL's voice that I hear giving the countdown, by the way. "Six days, Dave, until the possible destruction of your civilization...Would you like another beer, Dave?"

Hi Ho! And here we go!

I sent husband out today to get a few extra things. I was afraid to go myself, lest I actually see people with water in their carts. It's too sad to think about.

Happy birthday, Mara!
