Shaking, Baking & Picture Taking

So this pasted week in The OC it has been a little dramatic and temperamental.

First we had a heatwave that was just annoying. It was about 100 degrees out of nowhere for about three days. So miserable, hot and sticky. This was very inconvenient for me especially because our backyard & pool is not up to Summer standards at the moment.

It also didn't help that our neighbors rubbed it in our faces how bad we had it, they were splashing and laughing and having a grand old time in their pool while were were all stick inside our bedrooms trying to cool down with the AC blasting. Those Bastards!
Then out of nowhere this happens:
Four notable earthquakes have occurred in the Chino Hills, just north of Yorba Linda, since 4:56 p.m. today, greatly accelerating a swarm that was called 'curious' and 'unusual' last week by one of Southern California's top seismologists.
The shaking began at 4:56 p.m., with a 3.8 quake. The latest shakers came at 8:27 p.m., when a 4.0 quake occurred, followed one minute later by a 3.0 in basically the same spot. And there was a 2.5 quake at 9:04 p.m.

It's unusual for a smaller quake to be followed by a second quake slightly larger in magnitude. However, seismologists say such things happen, and it doesn't necessarily mean that a much larger event is imminent.

Yeah Yeah I know they weren't "that big" but when you're stranded in the restroom as I was at work ... not so much fun I tell ya. I came home and was telling Hubby and my Momma that I was stuck in the restroom and they both were too! Too funny!

So there you have it folks, you now have an accurate timeline of when Bon Don had to tinkle yesterday!

Now on to the picture taking, I almost forgot I had been tagged by my East Coast Daughter Nickie at Learn To Fly can you believe she wants me to take a picture of myself right at this very moment!!?? No primping or nothing!

Who would think of such a horrible thing?

Oh my goodness ok here it goes,

let me just say you're so lucky that I put on some sort of make-up today people!


Here's work Bon Don in all her glory...

Now I tag YOU!

(or whoever would like to participate, I'm not pushy)

The only way to do it!

Himbo said...

Hey sexy, how you doin? Grrr! ...Oh, and you look good too Bon Don.

Now all you need is a pimp cup to go with your pimp chair.

I think if I had one of those pimp chairs, I'd be much more productive.

I just woke up from a nap and totally dreamed about you and BDC. We were out drinking and talking about how you were a celebrity. And then some guys took my bottle of vodka (because in my dream, I had brought my own bottle to the bar, wtf) and BDC regulated. Awesome!

Just wanted to share :)

I'm so sick from this crazy weather; stuffy ears, nose, cough, the whole thing!

Souma said...

a 100 would be a good day here, we usually get a 120 and we have only one season a year, Summer!
and a couple of weeks ago, my dad decided that we dont need a swimming pool... not so nice of him...
never been through an earthquake in my life before though... any damage?

Michel said...

Now I'm wondering how I can justify my demand for a pimp chair at work.

Think! Some kind of disability thing.....hmmm...Beacause I NEED one.

Violet said...

damn, we must be neighbors because I felt that one at almost 8:30, I was already in bed (lame I know) I rolled over, grabbed my 2 yr old sat up in bed and froze, then ran to the doorway when I felt the next little one. I am such a scary cat! Nice that we are having some cooler weather now though!
BTW, love the pimp chair!!!

...love Maegan said...

ugh the weather has been weird ...although I like it better when it's warmer than colder. ...crazy about the earthquakes...although some would say it's "earthquake weather" ...so scary. I always think: IS THIS GONNA BE THE BIG ONE!?!?!? lol.

Nickie. said...

Love the pic...hehe. =) I don't think I could handle 100 for 3 days..damn weather. It was 90 here yesterday though, I was seriously wondering if it was actually the end of July and not the end of April! I don't mind thougghh...lol. Eeeek earthquake! =(
