So, get this. If you haven't heard about it already, there was an earthquake last night (at roughly 1AM). Loads of people missed it since they were sleeping, but I was awake at the time (surprise) and stood in my corridor.
And for my first time experiencing an earthquake, I gotta say, I'm impressed.
At first there was a sort of low rumbling sound, then it got louder pretty quickly and pretty soon the whole house shook. This lasted only just a few seconds, but it was still awesome. I'm glad I didn't miss that. Sure, if it was higher up on the Richter Scale (it was reportedly a 5.2) then there would undoubtedly be trouble. Since the UK seems as prepared for natural disasters/conditions as a crab is prepared to break the fall of a large boulder.
Seriously, I recall there been about a half foot of snow a few years back. That half foot of snow stopped ALL THE TRAINS IN ENGLAND. I mean, WTF? Ok, sure maybe not ALL the trains. But you get my point. Countries like Russia and whatever receive, annually, several feet of snow and there like: 'Meh. 'Tis only snow.' And carry on with normal life. Over here we scream and run around in circles exclaiming: 'SNOW SNOW GLORIOUS SNOW!' Then it all melts away into slush.
Ok, I seem to have gone off-topic again. Basically, we had an earthquake here. I was awake and got to experience the awesomeness of it. The end.
(NOTE: I'm not saying Earthquakes are "good" since they kill lots of people every year - I think - I'm just saying that I enjoyed my experience with it and it wasn't that bad.)
In other news, some stuff popped up. So I won't be able to go to the proposed Poker Night on Saturday. :(
It sucks. Although, if it's any consolation to myself, Ashley's having a small gathering Thursday night - which I can go to. It's a real pain about this Saturday thing, since it's weekly. So I'm booked up every Saturday after 5PM! *sigh*
I guess they'll have to deal without my awesome guidance. And yes, it means no coverage of the comical antics that will no doubt take place - unless Gavin decides to do it (yes, he is still an author... like Kate...). If only they change the day to Friday or something. Nevermind though, I guess they can look on the bright-side. It means less beat-downs for them at Poker.
The others, that I'm aware of, seemed to be practicing quite hard for the night as well. I was told that they were scared to play me, since I'm apparently "good at everything". Now, I don't exactly deny that but it's a slight overstatement. I can think of plenty of things that I'm not good at like... er... hm... brain surgery. Yea, I suck at that. Even though I've never done it before, but that's besides the point, even if I did do it I think I would suck.
Oh and just something funny I found messing around in Google. Type in "the answer to life, the universe and everything" and press search.

You think you're good at Guitar Hero? Think again!
