I am very disappointed in my Mayan Advent Calendar this year.

Thanks for the offer, firedept. That's a lovely poster, but I was just making a smart-a$$ joke.

How dare you!?!?!?!

Trees have to be killed, electrons have to be sacrificed, and you would stop this wanton killing?

For shame.

Interestingly enough, the word "Mayan" is only meant to refer to their language. "Maya" should be used at all other times and doesn't distinguish between singular and plural. So it's the Maya Advent Calendar. Maya culture. They speak Mayan.

Anyway... if your Maya Advent Calendar has spots for days past the 21st, better eat those candies!

You are neither old, nor are you crotchety...I don't blame people who hate Christmas at all...For me, it's just another day in the calendar...I feel no sense of loss at all by spending it alone, despite friends who insist "You must come over to us, you can't be alone at Christmas" Why not? It works well for the rest of the year...

I had my entire life to love it, and did. Now I'm old and crotchety.

Good luck, Peace. I hope you'll still have some wisdom left after they remove some of it.

Two friends of mine are scheduled to be married on the 22nd. I don't know whether or not to buy them a wedding present. Why should I do all that shopping when we might all be gone anyway?

That image looks more like a SIM card to me. Did the Mayas made already SIM cards ? But given the dimensions is not a nano-SIM but a giga-mega-SIM. I'm sure it will void the warranty of your iPad Mini if you try o insert.

Anyway: all our problems will end next week; XMas 2012 is cancelled and we don't need any New Year Resolutions .

Now lets sing all: don't worry, be happy

I don't know why they keep showing the Aztec calendar?

I dunno. If that's the case, why not use anything from Temple Run? It has those little thingies carved in the stone that look like native ethnic jungle... gahh! Just go to wikipedia and search for the Maya Calendar.

Slightly OT: Did you know that the Maya were the worlds first chocolate fans? (of course chocolate is often found in Advent calendars).

Hmmm, chocolates ... But with haselnuts. Sugar makes happy.

Off topic but I hope you are going to an oral surgeon vs a dentist. I don't know if its just in my area or not but everyone I know who went to the dentist to have it done has pain, swelling and misery afterwards while people who went to an oral surgeon (myself included) had very little pain and no swelling. I didn't even need pain meds and two of mine needed cut out.

I just realized that I might not be able to finish all my Nutella before it's too late. I don't want to be puking my guts out when the world ends!
