Dear Madame L,
I heard that besides the Mayan Calendar saying the world will end sometime next week, today the end of some era comes and the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
Laughing My Head Off
Madame L is laughing, too. Thanks for bringing to her attention another meaningless bit of trivia. She has hereby set her alarm to go off at 12:12 pm (she can't do anything about the second hand) today so she can be watching for the huge changes in the world.
Madame L was going to post more information about the new age but she is too busy rolling on the floor laughing. You can find out more than you really want to know about the various nut-cases and their so-called prophecies by performing an Internet search for "age of aquarius" 2012.
(Note that Madame L did not say you should "Google" the information. Madame L does not "Google" information any more because she was tired of seeing ads appear on every subsequent Web page she opened, after Google tracked her. Not cool, Google. Madame L now uses DuckDuckGo.com for her information searches.)
Here's the Fifth Dimension's take on the new age. Madame L especially loves the bass line in "Let the Sunshine In."
