Have you seen the movie, LA Story? There’s one scene where they’re all at brunch and there’s a huge earthquake and everyone carries on eating and conversing as if nothing was happening (no clip availiable, but look at this one ha! ha!). Well, that’s not exactly how I react to earthquakes, but I sure don’t take them as seriously (or twitter-worthily, I guess) as people did with the recent east coast quake. If I’m awake, I usually go “woah!” and then drop and cover the back of my neck if it’s really serious. Most of the time, I’m asleep and bummed out the next morning cause I missed it. #truestory
The LA Times actually advises you to stay in bed if you find yourself there during an earthquake. Ay ay, captain!
For my buds back east, though, this was kind of a big deal. Click here to see 20 stunning photos of the destruction they had to deal with.
And now the hurricane?? The east coast has not been having a very good month. I hear it’s pouring rain and pretty gusty back at ol’ Wes right now, which sucks for any training RAs and staff who are there (stay dry!).
Meanwhile, temperatures here have shifted from the norm of 75 degrees to a blistering 79 degrees, causing Angelenos to turn on our air conditioners and swoon whenever we step outside. We switch from bikram yoga to regular yoga, and our whole schedules are thrown off kilter. It’s a hard knock life.
Questions for my east coast readers:
1. R U OK??
2. Can you even do yoga when it’s stormy outside?
3. What was your reaction to the earthquake?
4. Hit me with your worst weather story. The one you’ve prepared to tell at cocktail parties.
Well, dear readers, with less than a week until I move back in (!), my excitement keeps rising like these outrageous LA temperatures (but really). I arrive at 7 p.m. on Saturday the 3rd, and have already invited my friends over to my little single in Hewitt so I can hear all their summer stories! Unpacking will not occur for at least a month. And that is ze fact.
Updates coming soon!
