What? Like Oklahoma was any better? I still remember the first time you and I were on TS and you, in that wonderful Oklahoma drawl, told your whole damn family "this kid is from Bolivia". Don't think I forgot.

I can walk to the nearest DQ if I really want to, but I didn't pay for this most recent tank of gas...

Fuck living in Suburbia.

I too can walk to a DQ from my home. We don't live in DC, we just like to visit DC as its the nearest city. It just so happens (and you can confirm this on the Dairy Queen website) that there is not one single DQ in DC.

However, we could always go to the fancy frozen yogurt place near the Farragut metro station provided this darn earthquake didn't take it out. ;)

You posted saying you were dickin about in a chair while everyone hid. Obviously fine, unlike the beer :p

The odd part was that my dad, grandpa, and my guitar teacher did not feel it

Its a good thing not many people were hurt.

But its still saddening because the earthquake is strong enough to destroy a city or lower and might happen again.

And also Redc- Pinkzeppelin's beer.
He will be missed.

We had this little aftershock around 1:30 am last night and I was yet again sitting in a chair-but this time a recliner. It felt like it suddenly became a massage chair which has led me to the important conclusion:
massage chairs feel like mini earthquakes!

Hmmm. I was on my bed and only noticed it because my dresser doors started wobbling. I didn't think it lasted that long.

I was dead asleep when the aftershock hit.

My co-worker a couple of desks away was talking to a tech support guy in DC (my office is just north of Toronto). It was on speaker phone so I can hear what they were saying, but the call has nothing to do with me so I wasn't really paying attention. Suddenly the tech guy on the phone starts getting quite excited and saying something about "shaking all over", and about 15 - 20 seconds later my monitor starts swaying back and forth.
