I felt a sudden and violent shaking of the ground, as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanic action just now 11:10 am eastern time June 12, 2005. About 5 seconds after my nephew runs in and says "thats the biggest one I've felt so far my youth" (translated of course) while I was there waiting patiently for after shocks, splitting of the earth's crush followed by the house falling in or worst yet - the ensuing tsunami. What can I say I see the worst aspect of things or believe that the worst will happen and but nothing did.

Immediately after I thought I should check to the internet to see wtf. But then I realized that the seismologist are probably a sleep and so that report won't get filed until tomorrow. Plus with the hurricane season at hand they might have changed careers. Everything appears fine within one mile. I hope nobody died horribly.

Well I looked outside and my car wasn't there, luckily it had not been swallowed by a gigantic crack in the earth, I did not have one in the first place. I did not see a wall of water coming towards me either - I made sure to look out for that. Because I watched The Day After Tommorrow in the movie theater not off some pirated DVD like some people. I reviewed that too.

  2. So, you a fiesty up yourself 'pon me blog! Well, Mr. Owen "Never post a pic twice", give me an irier picha fi post and I will! You have been challenged, sir! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to travel the roads of Jam and locate the phattest, most beautiful damsel that eyes have ever beheld, and to capture said damsel (on film) and return her to me. (The picha must be worthy of replacing the one you complained about! If you succeed in this mission, I will laud your name and cover you with gold! If you fail, your name will live forever in ignominy...

  4. hmmm...what a task I've been assigned, how will I choose there are so many? hmm...tricky conundrum. But then again xtina pretty much rocks your cradle so how am I going to be able to topple her? A most confusing and difficult problem, I'll see what I can do.

  12. Its nothing big really, thinking up a feature to add next is the hard part. The code is very procedural making it simple and independent.

    All I did was copy the code from the home page and past it at the bottom of the profile page.

    I could put a view source on each page because each page is pretty simple but I have not figured out a way to show the templates.
