Monkey

I survived the great (hah) earthquake.

No, srsly.

5.4, about ~260 miles from here. I've had fun wasting time looking at the earthquake website, actually (and google maps!). Neat to see earthquake 'trends' which are obviously hotspots. Didn't know the 'tail' of Alaska was quite so prone actually.

I was trying to figure out what it was at home. I was in the bathroom! I had enough time to finish washing my hands and then look out the window at the street, wondering if it was a freak bad storm or a loud truck or something. I was convinced I was imagining things until I got to work and Richard asked me if I felt it...

So. My very first earthquake.
