you shook me all night long*

So apparently there was an earthquake this morning? I got to work and someone was all, "did you feel the earthquake?" and I said, " . . . huh?" I'm not so eloquent first thing in the morning, you see. But I guess around 5:30 this morning, while I was sleeping, the earth moved. I still find it hard to believe, because I'm a really light sleeper (seriously, I will wake up if you even think about looking at me), and I felt nothing. It's all anyone will talk about today, which makes sense because, I don't know if you know this**, but we don't really get that many earthquakes in Ohio. I think they suspected we might get one when I was in like 3rd grade, because I vaguely remember having earthquake drills where we got to hide under our desk. They were either earthquake drills or bomb drills, I don't know. This was during the war in Iraq (you know, the first one), so it really could have been either.

Last night, when I got home from work, the spirit of Monica Geller inhabited my body and I raced around the apartment, cleaning like a madwoman. I don't know why, but don't worry. This burst of productivity only lasted until Heidi got home and we decided to get Papa Murphy's for dinner. Then we watched A LOT of TV. Like . . . a lot. And drank wine. But not a lot of wine. A normal amount. Wow, Jennie, good story. Um. How about a Conversation With My Roommate? A short one, though, because I'm sleepy.

Me: TiVo, PAUSED. I have to pee.
Heidi: OK. Do you want more wine?
Me: Do you have to ask?
Heidi: True.
Me: That's like asking a woodpecker if he wants to peck some more wood.
Heidi: Nice.
Me: Thanks.

**but I'm KIND OF a big deal


  1. oh wine, i miss wine.

  2. Are you anywhere near Cleveland? Because there's totally a Hellmouth there. Um, just KIDDING. I'm not a nerd.

  3. Except for the death and destruction part, I really like earthquakes.

    They mess with the basis assumption earth=solid in such an impressive way.

    I like wine too.

    If you're going to stagger around both offer good excuses.

  4. I often ask women if they felt the earth move after dates.

  5. Papa Murphy's is NOT on Heidi's protein diet. What the hell is wrong with you people!?

    I am sitting here VERY curious if you have a "companionship" opportunity this weekend. You will email me on monday morning. yes yes you will.

  6. Kat, wine is overrated. Wow, I can't believe I said that.

    Ashley, NO, thank goodness, I'm safe.

    'mouse, I'd rather stagger because of wine.

    Steve, and then?

    Tam, I don't even know what a protein diet is.

    As for a "conpanionship" opportunity (where do you come up with this stuff?), I'd love to, but unfortunately I haven't heard anything about it, so my email on Monday might be pretty boring.
