The rumor about the end of the world is travelling places at a fast pace after the recent earth quakes around the world. The frequency of those quakes are increasing at an alarming rate. And the heart goes out to those who are physically present in the calamity.
But even in the times of such distress, the mind does a topsy turvy, and fills itself with somewhat different thoughts.
Yeah! So we all know, the money which we have accumulated all along, is not coming up with us. Its ending right here with everything else. So really instead of all that money just burning away in a volcanic eruption or flowing away with the Tsunamis, shouldn't we be putting it to better use? Or best, shouldn't we be just spending like uh mm 'ALL OF IT'?
Wide eyed, dreamy like, it makes me think about all those things I want to do before it ends! Those things which I could only dream about; Those things which makes life so fairy tale like; And Those things which will clearly elaborate the phrase 'Living life the Kingsize'!!!
Here are the 10 random things, which I would do, if the world was to come to an end by Dec 2012.
10 super duper list, which I am sure, would be a part of every body's wish list :-)
I would love to
1. Spend some of my money on a world tour.
Greece, Italy, New York will be graced by my presence in the summers. Australia, South Africa, and India will have to wait till the end of the year :-) . If you want to hop along with me, better start following this page and fast :-P. I am taking all my followers with me. And yes, I did pay my taxes up til now, so don't start judging my bank account stats :-)
2. Spend some'more' of my money on clothes and shoes.
Which should ideally have been a part of my wardrobe years back :-| . But never mind. The new ones will effectively be displayed on my new fashion blog, which would obviously have some 1000 followers :-P
3. Visit spas everyday till the 'end'.
Preferred products: 'Body shop' only. I would soak myself in warm essential oils, get a deep tissue massage and be later wrapped in hot linens or mud wraps. Ahh Bliss! You can catch the glowing skin and hair on the same fashion blog, which I had claimed to start in the point number 2 :-P
4. Credit card abUSE
I would apply for 7 credit cards starting from April and would abuse them totally only in the month of November (There is no Dec to pay off the bills :-)) on exotic food only. Exotic food, includes any food, which is high in fat content and low in protein content. Crips, pastries, muffins, chicken, chocolates, All different cuisines. You get the point right?
5. Stay in the Taj Lake Palace at Udaipur.
The "Royal Butlers" working in the hotel, who are descendants of the original palace retainers would be at my constant beck and call. And do I need to add this? OK! How about My morning cuppa of tea at the Lily pond(in the picture above) for a week?? tch tch
6. Stop dieting and exercising.
No further explanation. Period.
7. Stop paying the emi on the house loan and car loan!! Stop paying TAXES!! Whoosh!
Take away the house, the car. Hell I don't care, I would go and live in the Taj :-)
8. Stop paying premium on the Life insurance!!!!
God, this should have been the first one isn't it?
Really, isn't this intriguing, every person in the software industry has a Life insurance. Not surprised. Considering the the life styles we have, not many of us have hopes to survive beyond the eternal 50. But imagine the amount of premium everyone is putting into it and now if the world ceases to exist beyond 2012, how much of it has gone into the dumps! Gosh!
9. Big Birthday Bash
I would celebrate my birthday with pomp and pride. Invite all my near and dear ones, and force them to gorge on the awesomely delicious chocolate cake till their stomachs ache. Tell how much I love them and how lucky I am to have them in my life!!
10. And in the end a silent Thank you.
Offer a silent prayer in gratitude to the almighty above, to have put me on this beautiful little green planet called Earth, and then remorse, to have been such an irresponsible living being who has bought the same planet to this pitiful condition.
There it is! So, while this post is coming to an end, I am sure similar thoughts have crept into your minds and you have started making your wish list too! So go on, tell me, what's on your list, IF the world comes to an end in Dec 2012? Till then, stay safe and be happy!
PS: If you ask me, what if the world doesn't end, and you end up with no money?
Who cares? All I care is I got to live my life like my dream. On a more sensible note, I would hit myself on the head, would quit dreaming and get back to work, before manager starts questioning 'my time' in the office!
