The only word I can think of to describe today's Los Angeles earthquake is... sensual. Yeah, the earth swayed and swooshed and ended in a meandering fadeout, much like the end of Hotel California if you drop the guitars. It lasted 14 seconds, which is a Magnolia-like eternity in earthquake time.

The damage at the office: none. The damage at the apartment: three framed photos on top of the bookcase topple but remain on the top of the bookcase; four wind-up toys and one postcard end up on the floor; and one cat (the little one) cowers under the bed while the other (the big one) sits contentedly on the couch.
