Woke up in the middle of the night because my bed was shaking like crazy. Had another big earthquake. Luckily, nothing fell down, but it was still pretty strong. It was a level 3 around where I live, and it got up to level 5 around Wakayama and Aichi. (Note to self: never live in Wakayama.) Afterwards, there were tsunami warnings, although I don't think the sea rose more than 20cm.

Dan came by late last night to pick up his stuff. We talked about the earthquake (this was before the second one) and he said he spent it hovering in front of his dishes, trying to keep anything from falling and breaking. The idea of Dan dancing in front of his dishes was pretty amusing. ^_^

Got to school today (meetings, meetings, meetings) and found out that a typhoon is headed our way tomorrow. Any more natural disasters, anyone?

I hope you and everyone you know rides through this without incedent.

Oooh, could be Godzilla. 'Cept for the fact that I don't live near Tokyo, and we all know that the Big G only eats Tokyoites. ^_~

well, there was the random island in Son of Godzilla, but I guess you're right.

How about Rodan?

I miss MST3K so much!!! That show was awesome. I hated it when Joel left the show, but after a while, Mike really grew on me. (Although Joel's still the cuter one.) ^_^

I'm jealous. I've lived in L.A. for a year, and I haven't felt the tiniest rumble.

Uh, knock on wood...?

Earthquakes are weird because they're sort of disorienting. You think of the ground beneath your feet as always being solid, but when it isn't, you sort of wonder where to go where it will be. It's just...weird...and it sort of messes with your mind a little bit.

It was definitely good for the experience, though. Thankfully it wasn't big enough that anything fell. I can't imagine how horrible the super-big ones where millions of people get trapped beneath fallen buildings and overpasses and stuff would be. ::shudder::
