Questions

So, I've been noticing that no one posts comments or answers my questions at the end of my blog... It's really annoying because I want to know who is reading my blog and what you guys think of it and thatyou guys have input! I don't want to just monologue here! I want a damn conversation!! Or something like that anyway....



So, we finally got internet access at home last weekend, which is completly amazing. I can finally go back to being my ultimate dorkiness and posting to my blog daily. (Insert laughs here.) I also started another blog: Random Movie Reviews. We don't get cable, but we do subscribe to the 4-at-a-time Netflix. So I decided to start reviewing them all. I've seen sooooo many movies, and I'll eventually do them all, but it'll take time. And who knows, maybe you'll see something that you might enjoy!



Jessica is looking at my various blogs and it's highly amusing because she's looking at the time when I was just meeting her and was so excited to have a female friend, and she was saying that it sounds so dorky but she was the same way. I think we're going to be good roommates for the next year, if either one of us can get up the motivation to do the dishes...



So there was an earthquake in the South Pacific today/tomorrow, depending on where you are and how you look at it. It was pretty big too. It was like an 8.0 on the Richter scale which is like one of the biggest ever recorded or something. They're saying that except I know that the one that I went through in San Francisco in 1989 was an 8.6. I was much further south of it and we still had a tsunami in the swimming pool (we're lucky that it didn't crack). We also lost a TV, a bottle or two of alcohol, and a bowl of homemade chicken broth that sloshed out of it's bowl...



Hurricanes are more fun to go through because it's longer and you can actually see it, but there's so much tension and lead-up and stress. Earthquakes are just wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am! and it's over. And for both, you really have the same amount of damamge, the same amount of aftermath, just more stress with hurricanes. Although hurricanes are more frequent now with global warming....



Question of the Day: Which would you rather go through, an earthquake or a hurricane?

I've been through both Hurricanes -in North Carolina - with Hurricane Fran (we had to take our Camper 30 miles north and check into a Hotel. 4 hours later 12 feet of water came in and destroyed the Campers that remained) and Earthquakes - for 3 years when I lived in San Bernardino. With my first Earthquake I banged on all of my neighbors doors. They all laughed at me. It was maybe a 4.5. I would rather go through a Hurricane. At least you know when it will arrive and can plan.

I know what you mean about not getting answers to your Blogs. I think People are afraid to have other People see their comments. I do get replys but they are in the form of emails. I think my older crowd doesn't quite get it. Sometimes I give them little suttle hints to look down below to the Comment area. I need to find a big arrow in my Fonts.
At least you had the courage to shame them into it!

I don't comment all that often because I usually read your stuff while I'm at work (such as now), but please keep up the blog posts. I like to know what you are up to and that you are doing OK. By the way, you should go to my MySpace and read the blog post I did on Nana. You remember her, don't you?
