... and I feel fine. Because the world was never actually going to end, guys. Other things that happened this week, besides the "Mayan apocalypse" not being a real thing: locals got ready for Christmas, the NRA was insane, the Saints beat the Cowboys and Orleans Parish School Board president Thomas Robichaux spoiled Gossip Girl.

Go ahead and open your presents (it's a bunch of tweets; I'm really broke this year) on Christmas Eve - you've been good boys and girls this year.
