    Yeah, it was quite relaxing, actually.

    After the '94 quake, earthquakes like today's are like small potatoes.

    So I guess you can say that earthquakes move you?

    I moved here in '97, and this was definitely the biggest one I have felt. Everything shook for about 10 or 15 seconds, and I heard my dirty dishes clinking in the sink, but nothing fell off a shelf or anything. It was kind of cool, actually. I always find them more interesting than scary. Of course, that probably has a lot to do with never having been through a big one.

    Our building was swaying back and forth for about 15 seconds. My work is on the fourth floor.

    It totally fucked up my skeeball toss.

    The phone lines were tied up for 2 hours afterwards. I couldn't get through at all to my family and friends to check on them.

    I haven't felt in earthquake in so long. I just know that when they occur they're just so sudden and it's a bit startling. All those earthquake drills you have in school as a kid make you think they're going to be so massive each time. Things start shaking and you're like "OMG This is it!!!"
