I'm afraid I can't tell you anything about the earthquake because I slept through it. Missed the whole thing.

Just in case people start going, "Ooh, we heard about the earthquake. What was it like..?"
Dunno. Missed it.

Bogna slept through it, too.
Listening on the radio this morning, there were all these people phoning in - some from Muswell Hill and Golders Green, which are not far away - and saying they heard this enormous rumbling and there was this shaking that went on for minutes and they were thrown off the sofa by it. Which is bollocks, obviously. The entire thing went on for a few seconds and the epicentre was a hundred and twenty-five miles away in Lincolnshire.
All I can tell you is, I'm not a particularly heavy sleeper, and it went by without me.

"All I can tell you is, I'm not a particularly heavy sleeper, and it went by without me."

And he calls himself a journalist . . .

I'm finding myself increasingly using the term in a postmodern ironic sort of way.

When I experienced my first earthquake about 12 years ago, it was just noisy. My oldest, however, was on the toilet at the time and to this day associates earthquakes with being suddenly wet and cold.

Sleep well [again] tonight. Come to think of it, there are other ways to experience the earth moving that include a bed (oh, and a spouse).

I actually thought of you when I heard the news of the earthquake. It was a 5.2 and I could imagine you going, "Pah! These British know nothing! We don't even open our eyes for anything less than a 6.0!" I guess things are different when you're getting them on a semi-regular basis and you're waiting for the one that turns the Central Valley into an inland sea...

Naw, I have great compassion for the Brits suffering, mainly because they're so glum all the time anyway. Keep in mind that we're relatively new to CA, its still freaky.

OK, 6.5 ... maybe.

We're not glum all the time. Well, I am...but I'm hardly a representative sample. I know quite a few people with sunny dispositions. Bastards.
