Manic Monday: Quake

MM-bluetextAs most of you probably know, we had an earthquake a few days ago.
I guess the epicenter was down in Illinois somewhere, but it was noticeable all the way up here in Michigan at 5:30 in the morning.
Or so I hear.
Actually, I slept through the whole thing.
If I was to wake up during a "shake, rattle, and roll" experience, I dunno if "earthquake" would be my first thought. We just usually don't GET those here.

Possible alternate explanations I would have considered first:

1) God is doing gymnastics, and He just landed a perfect ten.
2) There's an angry horde of villagers shaking the house because they are tired of me doing naked yoga every afternoon in the driveway.
3) The indigestion fairy is visiting me because I ate all those hot peppers before bedtime.
4) I am slowly being pulled into an alternate universe where politicians actually make sense.

Number four is a fantasy. They don't make sense anywhere.

What Jamie said. Bwahahahahaha. Naked Yoga in your driveway? Bwahahahaha. Okay, I did get a visual. I can relate to #3. Had Mexican food for breakfast. Have a great MM. :)

I ain't gonna bite you. I ain't had my shots.

They said we could feel the earthquake here in Atlanta too but I also slept right through it.

Later Y'all.

I liked #1 the best! Too funny. Happy Manic Monday.

Jamie: Maybe if there was a planet where everything was the OPPOSITE, they would make perfect sense. George Bush would be a genius.

Sandee: Be glad I'm not doing a video post on the naked yoga. Or an audio post about Mexican food. :)

Meloncutter: Bite me anyway.

CWM: Rumor has it, God really likes the parallel bars and the balance beam. He's not real crazy about the vault, though.

It's hard for me to believe that Illinois experienced an earthquake. It was so important that it didn't even make it on the news here (California) where we get REAL earthquakes.

Now #4 IS ridiculous :-)

Mr. Fabulous said...

Or you could blame the monkeys for that as well...

the teach said...

Ha! Janna... I agree with Jamie! :D

metalmom said...

Anyone who REALLY knows you would realize that #2 is the only true statement up there!

Janna said...

Corina: Be sure to move away before the whole state drops off into the ocean.

AnthonyNorth: Isn't it, though?

Fab: What a great idea!

Teach: Maybe there's an alternate universe someplace where people EAT politicians.

Metalmom: And #3! I like hot peppers!

Lynda said...

I slept through it too!

I slept through it too!

Travis said...

You know, that angry horde actually could be demanding a more rigorous nekkid yoga session.

It's ok to see the positive side once in awhile!

LOL!

Janna said...

Lynda: You slept through it twice?

Travis: I haven't even mastered the lotus position yet... and it doesn't get any easier when there are ants crawling in the driveway.

Lynda said...

Yes!

WillThink4Wine said...

I was going to vote for #4, but George Bush, Genius? That is so not possible!

Janna said...

Lynda: For all I know, so did I!

WillThink4Wine: Oh, don't worry. He's only a genius in the alternate universe where everything is the opposite. We probably won't get to see it in our lifetimes.

Since you seem to be about the only person in the earthquake-affected area who is nonplussed about it - I hereby make you an honorary Californian.
True Californians don't feel quakes until reach about 7.5. We'd have to be at the epicenter of a 5.2 to notice.
