Holy ShitBalls!

The earth, it was a'shakin'!

Dudes, there was an earthquake, perhaps you have heard. I have since discovered that I do not, in fact, like earthquakes. Especially when in my all glass office high, high up in the air. Everyone in my office evacuated except for me, yours truly, who stood in the middle of her office then checked facebook. Hey, I have my priorities straight. I then wandered into my completely empty office and thought that perhaps I should leave the violently rocking high rise as well.

After leaving the GIANT SWAYING BUILDING I decided to go home and check on the cats. Cat #1 was fine and wondering what all the fuss was about. Cat #2 however was laying on the floor, wrapped around a vodka bottle and wondering how to open it without thumbs. I calmed him down and then made him a vodka tonic as I am very compassionate. Then I went back to the office to check facebook again. Within 20 seconds of the earthquake hitting everyone had updated their status. In fact I updated mine during the first 10 seconds of the quake. Again, I have my priorities straight.

Today has left me a bit shaken (pun totally intended) and I have fallen out of love with LA. The earth moves, and not in the wonderful double entendre kind of way. Stupid Teutonic plates.

I can't remember why exactly but they say it's safer to NOT be outside so your priorities lead you to safety, friend. ;)
