Oh for heaven's sake...Would everyone get a grip?

It was just an earthquake..and not a very big one at that.

At the courthouse, we were close enough to the epicenter to catch the P-wave (a small precursor wave). I was sitting at my desk (4th floor) when I felt the small shaking. I had enough time to start saying "hey! Earthqua..." when the main wave hit. It was a good shake -- desks rattled, a few office mates jumped up to run to door frames. It seemed to last longer than the Anza earthquake of last Sunday morning.

Our building has special rollers in the sub-basement. After the major wave went by the building glided, like a boat in a slip, as the energy dissipated.

I found the whole thing quite exciting, though, some of my fellow co-workers weren't as enamored of the experience and cast me dirty looks as I stood up and exclaimed

"Land surfing! Ride it baby!"

ROTFLMAO! Sounds like fun! (yes, I'm a dork)

I wonder how I can work "land surfing" into a conversation. (duh, I already said I'm a dork)
