zrath: Zrath-Smiley as a TRON program (A10 TopBun)

Happy Chocolate Eggs And Bunny Day everybody!

How about a nice earthquake???
That one felt like motion on the ocean.

In other news, I was at Auntie [livejournal.com profile] selenesue's place yesterday for to watch stuff and have funky bitchin' disco time.
We watched three episodes of "Harry Hill's TV Burp", a manic British version of "Talk Soup/The Soup" with lots
of props and various high-jinks. The show makes fun of assorted British TV shows, especially the soaps and the
reality shows, which are always such trainwrecks anyway. And some of the people being made fun of actually show up
on "TV Burp"! I say old chap, those Brits do seem to have a rather well-developed sense of fairplay. :)
Since a friend of Auntie Sue showed up later with the new "Doctor Who" for us to watch, we also watched the
Xmas 2009 edition of "QI", with David Tennant as one of the panelists. I think I've mentioned "QI" here before,
it's a BBC celebrity quiz panel show hosted by Stephen Fry where everything you know is wrong. :)
"QI" stands for "Quite Interesting" and points are awarded for interesting, though not necessarily correct, answers.
Points are taken away for obvious, boring, mundane answers. The show is all about geek nitpickery, really. :)
So then we watched the new Who.
No spoilers here. I'll just say that the new kid is not bad, so far.
And the episode is vintage Moffat. Maybe a little too vintage. :)
And the new theme is rockin'!
The next episodes should be fun. And I'm so glad it's back to a weekly-ish schedule, instead of quarterly. :P
When I got home, I got my hands on the "Doctor Who Confidential" for this episode and watched it.
It's got a tasty Kraftwerk/trance version of the theme music that I really dig. I'd love to get an MP3 of it!

About 3 days ago, I gave up pestering the local Ralphs for Kosher Coke, as it was not having any effect.
So I drove to Glatt Mart (for all your kosher needs!) and bought 3 bottles (2-liter) of the stuff! L'chaim! :D
Herewith, for informational purposes only, a photo of the two surviving bottles:

Notice the label saying "Coca-Cola" only (no "Coke"), no mention of Coke Points, and the tell-tale yellow cap.
The ingredients list features "sucrose" instead of "high fructose corn syrup".
Thanks to the HFCS-ification of American Coke, I had forgotten what "Real" Coke smelled and tasted like.
It smells like smoke/caramel/tar/caffeine and tastes a bit like it too. :)
The startling thing is that it has no after-taste. At least, I didn't experience any.
But you know, to be honest, between Kosher Coke and Pepsi Throwback, I kinda like Pepsi Throwback more. :)
That said, if Coca-Cola and Pepsi made both products a permanent addition to their line-up, I would buy both.
Especially if Kosher Coke came in 12oz cans. Because it's only available in 2-liter bottles and I'm just one Kzin!
And the soda goes flat rather quickly once the bottles are open!
I'm not gonna be one of those people who drinks a whole 2-liter bottle a day by themselves.

Anyway, time to head out and hunt down some dinner.
Enjoy your evening!

Yes, we got quaked at 20:39 PDT tonight.
5.0 located just East of Lennox, South-SouthEast of LAX.
USGS data is here.
It seemed to last a good 10 seconds, maybe 15. Nothing fell down.
My LCD monitor oscillated left to right like a metronome.
Time to go make dinner...

We just had a short earthquake here.
It was a 3.4 centered 2 km (1 miles) WNW (288°) from Marina del Rey, CA.

USGS info here

Everything is under control.
Do not be alarmed.
We now return you to LJ, already in progress.

We just had a mild earthquake, magnitude 3.0
It was a single tremor, like a squad of very large trucks driving by.
It hit a couple of miles North of LAX, a couple of miles South of me.
USGS details are here.
Considering how intensely and unexpectedly hot it's been today, I'm not surprised.
Sudden swings in temperatures can bring about quakes.
It's 8:10pm and it's 90F in my neck of the woods!
It was about 60F at the same time yesterday!!!
What madness is this!?!?!

Magnitude: 5.8
Time: Tuesday, July 29, 2008 at 18:42:15 UTC
Epicenter is somewhere in Chino Hills.
Hey, [livejournal.com profile] hatch used to live there! :D

Anyway, we're fine here, we're all fine here, now...
How are you?

Oh yeah, we had an earthquake at 1am Pacific earlier.
Full details here.
It was 4.5 magnitude and about 4 miles North by Northwest of Chatsworth, so our San Fernando Valley friends felt it more.
We were overdue for some shakin'.
That is all.
I'm going to bed.
