Did the earth move for you?

Sunday morning 7am,in Toyko, I was awakened by the bed shaking with a gentle rythmic, back and fore motion, which continued for about 20 seconds.

The sado geologist in me was so excited by the prospect of being in a real live earthquake that I forgot to be scared about the fact that we were on the 9th floor of a high rise block.

No damage done and I was rather suprised to find out on Monday that it was 5.8 on the richter scale. Details here

Even better is the fact that as I lay in bed and the earth moved for me, my score on the geo-mime was increased to a suitably inuendo ridden "69".

Pathetic isn`t it...
