Teh Squeaky Wheel
Stoaty-y Caturday greetin’s, GN! (Took me a minute to parse today’s thread captioning; coffee hadn’t worked its magic yet.)
Hope the SoCal contingent is -- and remains -- safe. And that no bigger temblors occur.
(Just flashed on riding-out one of the Northridge aftershocks while on a townhouse roof in Woodland Hills about 35′ above the ground; good times…)
Puns. On a Saturday morning. Sigh.
Hi, Fatwa. Last night’s quake was an odd one at least in my experience. It went on for a long time with a very gentle rocking motion, then a brief increase in intensity -- that moment where you think, OK, here it comes -- and then it stopped.
What’s got me confused is why Gaia is shaking us up -- doesn’t she know that we banned plastic straws?
That caused dual snogglesnortage in Larryville.
LambiePieK opined it may be a case of Gaia’s stance being, “Well, what have you done for me lately?“
Perhaps Gaia has seen what they are washing off the streets and into the bay and ocean. I would be a bit pissed myself.
I would be a bit pissed myself.
This reminds me of that scene in Jaws where the night before it all goes south, the three of them are sitting around drinking and the captain tells them the story of the Indianapolis sinking and the shark attacks and all. And at the end he says “But we delivered the bomb.”
Years from now in similar circumstances and in all seriousness, some old hippie when he grabs hold of the talking stick will tell some story about the collapse of Western civilization and he’ll end it with “But we banned plastic straws.”
Happy caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac the Pun!
As Sven said, it was a weird one.
