earthquake in seattle

I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe.
I was not offended,
For I knew I had to rise above it all,
Or drown...in my own...shit.
-Funkadelic, Maggotbrain

Today there was an earthquake in Seattle. Here's what other Seattleites had to say about it.

As for me, I was sleeping in my underwears when it happened. It woke me up and I got up on my knees and looked out the window while I felt the earth roll underneath me for a spell. It was nice. Nothing fell or rattled even. Then I went back to sleep. Planet Massage! When I woke up I forgot about it 'til I tried to go to school and no one was there! I've had snow days, but never an earthquake day.


Sam was so much smaller then, all that week he asked me: Earth shake mama? trees shake, mama? Trees OK?

I watched my goddesses dance on my sculpture shelf, one fell off but didn't break, she jumped onto a pillow!
