*note: be aware heathens not raptured will apparently enjoy an extra 6 months on earth (until the party ends permanently for you in October), during which time one can guess it may indeed get very, very summery hot.
Of course, there's always a chance, a slight chance, these predictions are wrong. Harold Camping, the primary author of the May 21, 2011 "We Can Know!" endtimes campaign also thought "We Can Know!" back in 1994. And, well, he didn't really know. How embarassing!
Usually I'm not concerned with such erroneous nonsense, but it is a little harder to ignore predictions of the end when unprecedented earthquake, tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, giant sinkholes and the imminent supermoon seem to be daily stories. And also, there is the fact that Toe and Roo have recently (and inexplicably) become addicted to all things Pokemon. That's a sure sign right there.
If you really are looking forward to the end, don't worry. You will get at least one (if not more) additional shot at it next year in December 2012 (see, Nostradamus, Mayan Long Count Calendar, cheesey Hollywood disaster flicks and my Old Blog for information). Since winter 2012 is over a year and a half away, though, you may want to take your Lipitor and get back on that elliptical machine. You still have at least two summers and one Christmas holiday party season to get through.
