Well, today I:

1) paid for my condo in kona, for a trip one month from today.

2) read the reports on a historically large earthquake in that same region.

In that order.

So you know, life remains interesting. More as I learn if this has any effect on me apart from possibly meaning it’ll be easier than usual to get reservations at the best luaus.


Well, this isn’t sounding like it’s too terribly serious. Big pain in the ass for those who saw damage to their houses, and I’m sure, scary as hell, but unless i hear otherwise from the condo joint, i’m thinking all is well. Though I’m thinking a lot of silly people will now cancel plans for travel and crowds may be down.

  1. I was thinking of questioning the wisdom of holidaying in a place prone to earthquakes, but then i read the following in your referenced article:

    “We were rocking and rolling,” Anne LaVasseur told The Associated Press.

    And i realised that, (if you ignore the almost archaic “g” at the end of the words ‘rocking’ and ‘rolling’), this has to be an indication of the coolness of the place. Which would make it ideal vacation fodder.

    Have fun. Send a postcard. Preferably obscene.

  2. Indeed. The earthquake risk in NoCal is at least as high or higher than in Hawaii. It might even be higher than for us here in SoCal. But on the other hand, earthquakes are interesting, even if they occasionally fall on weekends and make me have to work on a Sunday…

    And this was a pretty good one. It got lots of attention for My Pet Project.
