BIG FUCKING EARTHQUAKE LAST NITE!! -- A 5.1 Caltech said... It was a shocker. Like someone picked up the house and shook it very hard, twice. It was loud and quick, though... We humans have so little control over Mother Nature -- gives you perspective and puts you in your place real quick!

  May you go through the rest of your life thinking that 5.1 is a Big Earthquake...

  ahem. Palm Springs, CA. desert area... After watching my local news I learned me that there are a gaZILLION faults out here! I truly had no idea how many... There's a cool website: syzygyjob.org which I check out from time to time EXCEPT FOR! this last one which, (aside to Kid: No. I wasn't "expecting it"! Fuck you anyway...) BECAUSE!!!! Earthquakes aren't anything you ever get used to. For the simple reason they're not predictable in behavoir...

  No way! Palm Springs. Ive been to America twice, and we went there both times. Its probably one of my favourite places in CA! We had a small earthquake when i was there in 1992. Very small though.

  I hate it and I'm leaving... sooner than I thought. I am going to face ALL my fears and jump/leap once again into that great unknown otherwise known as my life. The fears will include (and are not limited to): taking a plane trip, not knowing for how long I will be able to stay/afford where I'm going, and, not really knowing the territory beforehand. I actually work best under this kind of stupidity, though. With any luck I will be changing my life (and location) by Thanksgiving... Yeeeha!
