So it’s 8:54 PM on Tuesday night, 19-June-2012 and I’m working on my computer when I notice I’m bouncing up and down. Not violently, but steadily up and down. Reminded me of 1998 in Wellington, New Zealand. Hey, I know an earthqualke when I feel it, people! So I go down to the lounge and ask the people there if they felt that. Nope. Looked at me like I was a loonie. So I went back to work. Then MBW texts me that I was right! Yikes!
