I Must Slip Into a Coma ...


Damn, people ... am I the only one in Springfield who didn't wake up to this morning's seismic waves? Everyone in the blogging community awoke to find their houses shaking at 4 a.m. ... and, as usual, I slept until the alarm went off at 6 o'clock.

You know ... God help me if we're attacked by aliens or the rapture comes ... because I will be totally oblivious.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake,
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane
Lenny Bruce is not afraid

REM - It's the End of the World

  1. Hey Thirty-

    You are not alone. Aubrey and I spent the whole day yesterday digging walkways in our backyard, and we were beat last night when we went to bed. I don't think either of us have slept more soundly in years. However, I did wake up about quarter till five this morning because our dogs were up and prancing around. I proceeded to pass right back out. I didn't think anything of it until this morning when I heard the news.

    You're not alone. I live in a tall dorm building. You KNOW those things are built like tanks. I didn't feel ANYTHING....not even the small one you felt during work. I feel a little left out....

    My teacher sent me this link this morning:

  4. As I mentioned in a quick Twitter yesterday. I was up around the time this event took place. There was nothing to indicate something was going on in my household. Later that morning after being alerted to the quake I looked around the house to see any evidence of a 5.2 - everything was where it should be. Luckily for most people the walls did not come tumbling down.
