Some randomness to get you going this Friday.
As always, play here.
1. Philanthropy :: Philosophy
2. Said :: Spoke
3. Blanks :: Gun
4. Tapas :: Paella
5. Orgasm :: Loud
6. Movement :: Front
7. Detention :: Afterschool
8. Restaurant :: Menu
9. Weird :: Strange
10. Sniffle :: Sneeze
Explanations: They're all pretty self-explanatory. As far as detention goes, I used to get a lot of detentions in high school. I'd get Saturday detentions and we'd have to go to school on Saturday, sit in a room for four hours and be quiet. The only things we couldn't do was put our heads on our desk or talk. It was actually enjoyable for me as I've always liked some quiet, alone time. It was a chance to relax, read the paper, get some work done, and have time to myself. I used to get the detentions for ditching school. Not the greatest idea I ever had.
Okay, so the moment we've all waited for is nearly here. My hour of hell is upon us. My plan is to run to Kerrie's playlist bright and early on Friday, so either you are reading this right before my run or sometime shortly after. I'll update when I get back from my run so keep an eye out for that.
This is how I've re-arranged the playlist.
When I sent Kerrie my playlist, I titled it "LB's Ultimate Playlist/Kerrie T's Worst Nightmare." However, I definitely had the shortest straw pulled for me, hence the album name for my run. Ha. That was a Metallica reference. They have a song called Shortest Straw. I'd rather listen to that song over and over again for an hour than LB's Worst Nightmare.
Anyway, I figure I'll get the worst of the worst out of the way. Kesha (which Mrs. LB informed me is actually Ke$ha, pronounced keh-shu) is the one I'm fearing the most. I'll just suck it up and get past that. Metro Station might be even worse so that one's up first.
I had wanted to go run Mt. Rubidoux but I might run around my house instead. I might run over The Hill. Usually I can get seven miles on that route. It's just an over-and-back, so if I don't make it out to Mt. Rubidoux I'll do that.
And if you happen to drive by me, I'll be the runner with tears in his eyes.
Shaken, Not Stirred
Did you hear anything in the news about the major earthquake that struck northern Mexico last weekend? Well, it was pretty big.
Check it out:
I kind of re-arranged that in order to make it fit. A lot of those numbers are coordinates and time and such, but the relevant number is the magnitude in red next to MAP.
Yeah, a 7.2 earthquake.
We felt it. We were at my parents' house after having had an Easter lunch together. We felt it but it was mild, nothing bad. A few minutes later we saw that it was a 7.2. We're lucky it was about 150-200 miles southeast of us and its epicenter was nowhere near any sort of large urban areas.
I've never felt a 7.2 earthquake, and even though I technically felt it, I didn't come close to feeling the brunt of the damage. A friend of mine said he was in San Diego during the earthquake and he said it felt like he was surfing. Of course, he was in the second story of a home down there, but nothing happened save for the water in the house's pool splashed everywhere.
Oh yeah, check this out.
Those are all earthquakes. The magnitude is on the far left and the epicenter is the location on the right. Anything in red is I believe greater than a 3.0. Now, this is all of California and registers earthquakes in Baja California (Mexico) and Nevada, but this is about 90 minutes' worth of seismic activity. All these quakes in less than two hours.
Welcome to California.
