2012 in review…It was a good year at WorldofRandi

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 62,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I Found Theraflu for ONE DOLLAR!

A lot of you have been coming here to look for Theraflu.  I could be mean and offer to sell you mine for $55.00 a box, like this person on Amazon.com is. (Okay you get four boxes of it) I will simply tell you where to find it.

Thanks to a reader’s tip, I went to the Dollar Tree and found so much Theraflu on the shelf I almost bought it all!

Macy’s After Hours…Creepy, yet enchanting.

I’ve never done any “after hours” shopping unless you can count Walgreens.  I took advantage of being right by Macy’s at around 2:00am.  I went in and saw some pretty interesting things…and some weird things too, and some things that scared me so I did not take photos of them because I feared for my life.  I seriously thought the bathroom was at one point a crime scene.

Yes I’m on Instagram @WorldOfRandi

It looks so welcoming and magical on the outside…

This window was particularly disturbing…

If you’ve been to Macy’s during normal business hours, the lower floors are so jovial and modern.  The higher up you go, the escalators even change and things get a little weird.  There was a MASSIVE crowd at the in-house McDonalds.  I was too scared to take a picture.

Did you know that there is a WIG Salon next to a post office on the 9th floor.  Yeah.  Creepy.  It’s hidden off into an alcove that I was too scared to wander into.photo-12photo-11

SantaLand is closed kids…abandoned, a shell of what it was over the past month…

The most beautiful yet creepy area.  Filled with drunk, high, men, quietly wandering around aimlessly.  Trying to establish eye contact with anyone who they came in contact with. The creepiest part, there was no music playing anywhere in the store.

It’s not too late to buy this gem of a gift, a “Buty Panty”, I declined…

Happy Holidays!  I was going to hit Old Navy after Macy’s I ran and got into a cab instead.

Find out what time the world ends in YOUR town!!!

Well we all know what tomorrow is.  According to the Mayan’s, the world is supposed to end.  I woke up this morning with that annoying Britney Spears song in my head.  Now I’m listening to it, because it just feels right.

I was planning on gong to the gym today, but if the world really does end tomorrow I guess it won’t matter.  So I’m taking the day off and working on some writing projects.  Then I’ll see my shrink later who will hopefully convince me that indeed, the world will not end.

If the world does NOT end tomorrow, I have decided I WILL go to the gym in celebration and then the tanning salon.  Call me vain…(I had filler yesterday).  If the world ends, I guess it will not make a difference.

OKAY!  For those of you who want the details on the world ending (this website may scare you).  There is actually a set time!  It also has to do with planetary alignment.

11:11 AM GMT time. You can go to this site and they have a nifty converter that will tell you what time the world ends in YOUR city!  Isn’t that fun!?

New York-6:11AM

Los Angeles-3:11AM

So it looks like I’ll be asleep when this happens.  So I’m going to go about my day and if the world indeed does end tomorrow, or we’re invaded by aliens-which I just read about here.  I’d be bummed, but it’s been a good run.
