shake rattle and roll
whoa. just experienced my first earthquake! i was sitting in my 26th floor downtown office, eating a cream cheese brownie & minding my own business (and talking to my friend, jean), when mid-sentence jean grabs my desk and i stop chewing -- because we are moving around! like some giant hand just grabbed our building at street level and gave it a bit of a shake.

now i know how i react in bizarre circumstances. just like when i was surfing and saw my first shark. forget fight or flight: i freeze. when i saw the shark, i pretended i was a tree (in the water). same thing with this earthquake. my m.o.? do nothing!

i have decided to eat dessert first from now on. what if the earthquake had come 10 minutes earlier while i was eating the pizza? that would have been cruel.
