“Fire and Ice” by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Apparently the end of the world has been pushed up from December 2012 to this Saturday. Yikes.

Haven’t heard about it?  Here, let me Google that for you.

This Sunday.

If you happen to believe in that sort of thing, you’re probably not reading this blog right now. You may be stockpiling bottled water, protein bars, heavy blankets and Bactine in your fallout shelter, or on a plane to tell that special someone you do, in fact, love them. That’s cool.

But if you do happen to casually be surfing the Web in search of apocalyptic advice, you’ve come to the right place. I happen to be a worrier of epic proportions with epic shopping suggestions. I’ve already played out the different scenarios, and have attire picks for optimal survival odds.

Should the world end in fire, Arizonans will have the upper-hand, as we already deal with fiery-hot conditions on a daily basis.


I can barely recognize these without the reflection of explosions in them.

Some Michael Kors aviators are timelessly disaster-chic, and remind me of every Independence Day-style movie I’ve ever seen. If these are good enough for Will Smith, they’re good enough for me.


Perfect for sunning or running from catastrophe.

An Agent Provocateur swimsuit like this Lyssandra Underwire Plunged Swimsuit fits the bill in a Halle Berry, 007 sort of way. Strap a knife to your hip and emerge from a body of water in slo-mo for the full effect.

Should the world end in ice, we may be a little off our game.

Not too bulky, but still warm enough for a nuclear winter.

First things first, we’ll need nice warm coats. This Burberry Brit Quilted Motorcycle Jacket will be great for layering over cardigans and bulletproof vests.

Protects your ears from the cold and the sound of bombs detonating.

Also on my list- head warming gear like these Karl Donoghue Rabbit Earmuffs. Ordinarily, I’d be completely against fur. But in times of superhuman, bitter cold, it may actually be the difference between human life and death. Plus, there won’t even be a fur industry to perpetuate after the apocalypse and these are already dead.

 

Also great for running from aliens.

Either way, there’s going to be sludge or ashes to wade through. Jimmy Choo’s Biker Wellingtons fit the bill, and look 2012-chic to me. Bonus, the soles are made in a way that doesn’t slip on debris.

*Note: I didn’t bother including prices on any of these items, for obvious reasons.
