- go get haircut
- go see Hellboy II - I LOVE THE AWESOME MECHANICAL ARMY!!
- clear off coffee table
- vacuum EVERYTHING
- get last remnants of science camp out of my bedroom and into the Science Closet
- get last remnants of science camp debris out of Gir (my car)
- get Gir cleaned (detailed!)

..........um, HOLY SHIT. Uh - clean up after fucking EARTHQUAKE???!!????
Um, yeah. Get back to you on that one.

ETA: 'Kay, that was good times...5.4 earthquake centered a few km from our place. Have cleaned up all the stuff that fell, vacummed the dirt up from the plant, put all the paint back in the paint spinney thing. Now, to get the cat out from her hiding place...o.O

I love that you have a Science Closet. :D No wonder you love Glitch. He probably has one, too. Which Cain will probably stumble upon one day while looking for a spare dressing gown.

Extremely! Kitty didn't like it, but nothing broke so I'm pleased. Everything cleaned up except Anndie's room, which I can't tell if things fell or if they started off where they are...so I'll leave that to her! :D

*is now wondering if any little movements around are earthquakes or people upstairs horsing around*

Did you actually feel it or just heard about it? I was at school and we had fun trying to get everyone of the building and around. Cars are coming in trying to pick up the little ones....

:P at the other one for making fun of my room.

Wait... there was an actual earthquake?
*hugs you and your cat* I'm so glad you're OK. (pardon me for not knowing the news, no TV) I thought you just meant figuratively. *hugs again*

HEE! S'okay sweetie - I was in the middle of typing my list when it started so I decided to just add it to the list when I was done cowering in a doorframe! *giggles* I'm a total dork, since it's the first "real" earthquake I've had since we moved down here three years ago...so naturally, I find it fun and amusing after the fact. *HUGS!*

Now, off you go to write some vaguely incestuous Glitch/Jeb (cause in my brain, Glitch and Cain are already married and Jeb is their kid. *grin*)!

YOU LIVE NEAR MY UNCLE! I FELT THAT! ...Actually, that earthquake woke me up this morning (yes I was still asleep at that hour). *hugs* Did it shake you too bad? 'Cause my mom thought a plane had crashed into our house.

*hugs!* Nah, wasn't too bad - the center was a few miles from our place, so we are about as close as you can get and we still didn't have anything break. Stuff fell off shelves all over but other than that it was okay. My roommate's brother had a couple of glasses break and we heard a neighbor of a friend's parents (they live a few blocks away) had the chimney in their house break. Things like that. :)

I'm glad you're ok! *hugs back* I'm an hour and a half away and it still felt strong here, but nothing was broken or anything.

You know they felt it out in Las Vegas?

Yeah, I heard! That's crazy! I'm in a second floor apartment so I was mostly creeped out by wondering if the building would stay intact. But then, I'm from Oregon and have only been here for three years, I don't really know any better than to assume the worst! :D

Oooooh. I was born in Anaheim, so I'm very used to it. Don't worry about it, alright? They usually don't get much bigger than a 6.0, and 'the big one' has been floating around for ages. Not in our lifetimes, I think.
