I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

5.9, down 85 miles south of Monterey. I'm fine, work is fine, everyone is fine. But dayumn.
Disconcerting. And I can't seem to get it solid in my head that it's not going to do it again. I've been feeling dizzy off and on all morning anyways- and that's what the earthquake felt like...
Ah-HAH, I have the tiny discoball ornament hanging in my window to gaze at and determine if the world's moving or not.

UPDATE:
6.5, near San Simeon.
  • Glad you're safe.
  • ha! that's funny, because I've been kinda dizzy, too, and the first thing I said when it was over was, "man, for 5 seconds I thought it was me."
    I need more hanging things.
  • Yeep!

    Glad you're safe. Gotta go check with the extended family in San Luis Obispo!
  • Heh.

    Are we having fun yet?

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Hopefully not too much broke at Hearst Castle.
  • T'was fun up on the 10th floor: the ceiling tiles in my office were creaking. Whee!
  • Holy hells.

  • Hee. I spent most of the earthquake wondering, "Is this me?" Because sometimes when my muscles are really wonky my legs shake enough to shake the whole bed. But then I realized that the water bottle on the bedside stand was wiggling around....

    My aunt lives in Cambria (near the epicenter) and I got through to her; she said they were out of electricity a few minutes, and some things fell off of shelves, but otherwise they're fine.
  • See, this is what you get for mocking my earthquake a couple weeks ago. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!

    Glad you guys are okay. I should send some superglue, for gluing yourselves to the ground.

    Pev
    • Oh, it was just a bit of jiggly around here. I'm mostly staring at it and going 'let's see. The Governator, the power grid burning down for 12 hours, and the earthquakeage. Fuck, why don't you people LEAVE already???'
