Oooh, that was fun. Earthquake!

I know, I know... I'm so silly with my "earthquakes are recreational" thing, but this one was FUN! And the biggest we've had since moving to Santa Monica three years ago.

Clickee for biggee.
Click HERE for quake details.

(Believe me, I was never this amused by earthquakes when the sample size was ONE and that ONE was the Northridge Quake and I was living alone for the first time in my life, living seven miles from the epicenter. Yeah. Not fun.)

But this 4.5 (estimated) shaker at 12:58am in The Valley was a nice, rolling shaker. And our pictures are all askew. Cats are FRAZZLED. We're giggling with glee that we were not in the car when it happened (because that's so boring. You feel exactly nothing).

Keith is also amused that--just 13 hours ago--he said (when I commented that the cats were acting weird... more weird than usual), "We're due for an earthquake." Ah... that smart, sensitive cookie!

Okay, back to work!

Okay, either we didn't feel it over here on the East side, or I was too drunk to notice it. Dammit! xoxoXO. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

I'm SO glad that you think earthquakes are fun. I always wanted to expereince a small one while I was living in CA and I felt a little weird about it. I did finally experience an extremely short one in SF and it was really cool.

Damnit! I missed it! Think there'll be a nice aftershock this afternoon? :) I've only felt one little shaker ever, I'm overdue!

It was pretty cool feeling. This was the first one that I have felt since moving here.
