earthquake today in the pacific northwest o' north america. it was apparently 7.0 and centred near Olympia. I like in vancouver, british columbia, and we felt it too. I was on the 27th floor of an office tower and my building was swaying quite a bit. I thought I was just having a relapse of my ear ache or the flu, but then I noticed that the papers on my desk were all shuffling around. wobble, wobble, wobble.

it was cool. I don't know that I want to spend a major earthquake in the top of an office tower, but I'm so all over minor earthquakes.

wobble wobble wobble.

it's ash wednesday. I never knew what ash wednesday was until this year. last night for shrove tuesday I had people over to eat apple pancakes. mmm. pancake eating is a good tradition. hats off to the english.
