Well... I slept through an earthquake. Everything said.  
Tonight there was an earthquake about 100 kms from here. And I've been told that the shakes could be felt here, too.

True fact? Tonight I didn't even hear it. I think I might have woke up for five minutes or so but I absolutely didn't sense it, which is crazy because my parents in the next room did. Anyway, I'm okay and nothing's damaged here, thankfully. kros_21, marty_paige? You alright? As far as I know there was nothing serious happening around here but better safe than sorry.

Also, the fun thing? The city where the epicenter was? That's where my dad commutes. I don't know if he was bound to go there this week since there are Easter holidays starting in three days but I'm glad as fuck this didn't happen Wednesday when he was supposed to go because then, well, I'd rather not think about it. Anyway no good news from there but thankfully no one he knows died. Now I guess he won't go to work for a while but the situation is definitely not good. Fuck indeed. And I just can't believe I slept through it even if I guess here it wasn't a tenth as bad as there.

(OT because I needed to make an entry but can't now: pnr, I have the exams' dates. Two days at maximum to fit the schedule together and stuff and I have the plan ready, sorry for not replying two days ago but this weekend I've been mostly not really online and had RL stuff going on.)

Shit indeed.

Yeah, I'm okay thankfully... I still don't get how the hell did I manage to sleep through the whole thing since it lasted ten minutes and it was pretty hard too but... ah well. *hugs* Thanks!

Si si tutto ok, anche Kros_21 dovrebbe stare bene, lei vive al centro di Roma! <3

Oh cristo e ci credo O_O lì deve essere stato molto peggio che qua O_O tutto bene spero sì? ♥

Sìsì, niente conseguenze, per fortuna :* solo che è stata lunga O_O

Eh cazzi ci credo O_O se qui è durata un quarto d'ora (da quello che ho capito) figuriamoci lì... <3

That's terrible about the earthquake; i'm glad you're okay though. And thank goodness for small favors that it didn't happen on Wednesday.
the female ghost of tom joad: not amusedjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 02:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And seriously, I'm really touching wood here. Considering that he's there three days each week it was pretty much good luck at this point. *hugs*

I just read about the earthquake and thought immediatley about you. I'm so glad the entire Tangerine family is safe.
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 02:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, all fine here, but the fact that it was there of all places is just making me so unsettled really. Well, that was luck I guess. ♥
Ellin: these silhouettes; dw; tensapphire_child on April 6th, 2009 02:15 pm (UTC)
I just heard about it on the news - so glad you and your family are okay!
the female ghost of tom joad: glomping!janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 02:18 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! Yeah, we are. It wasn't really a danger here even if we/they heard the shakes but it's just making me unsettled. And things don't look good there either. *sigh* ♥
Ellin: I can see eternity; dw; rosesapphire_child on April 7th, 2009 02:44 pm (UTC)
Fair enough too. Stay safe and make sure you update if anything further happens! I worried about you when I heard about them :S
halfdutch: Sinfest - Percy & Poochhalfdutch on April 6th, 2009 03:02 pm (UTC)
So glad you're okay, hon!
the female ghost of tom joad: glomping!janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:55 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! Yeah, all fine here. This zone wasn't really that affected really but still, there was the scare.
Janicejaydblu on April 6th, 2009 03:10 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's close! I'm glad you and your family are safe. I was watching that on the news this morning, and, wow.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:55 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it was. Thanks so much, yeah, we are. Even if seriously, if it had happened tomorrow I don't know how much worse the music would have been in these parts. *shudders*
the story girl: Lost: hugeponine119 on April 6th, 2009 03:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, that is pretty close to you! I'm glad you're safe. What a horrible thing to happen.
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it was. More than that since it's where my dad works I was just kind of familiar with the place and it was just a blow. ♥

the female ghost of tom joad: glomping!janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:51 pm (UTC)
Fuck it is. I don't even want to know how they'll deal there or how much it'll take or anything else but it was a blow. Thanks so much! ♥ and yeah, we're all fine at least.

I remember waking up in an earthquake one time. It was so freaky. By the time I was fully awake it had stopped and I wondered if I'd just had a really intense dream.

Aww, Chris/Gordie.
the female ghost of tom joad: approvedjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:50 pm (UTC)
Isn't Chris/Gordie just the cutest King pairing ever? *sigh*

Oh God, I can believe that. I think that I woke up some five minutes but I just can't remember anything shaking, I still can't believe I just slept through it.
Pocki: BSG - Kara - let me gopnr on April 6th, 2009 04:41 pm (UTC)
glad everyone's ok ^^


and yay!
ok so in two days? lets have a Skype date and fix everything.
the female ghost of tom joad: adrian pasdar *smile* <3janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks and believe me, I am too! ;)

I'll try to have all my shit together by Thursday, if I also manage to do some stuff tomorrow which is when I'm at school all day. *sigh* If I don't make it Thursday afternoon I'll try to be on Saturday when I'm at my family's for Easter but they should have a fast connection and I'll just put Skype on the laptop and try to attach myself there.
geminigrace on April 6th, 2009 05:01 pm (UTC)
I hope everything is okay where you are!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack **janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:40 pm (UTC)
Here it's all fine, we just got some peripheral shakes and thankfully we're not in the actual danger zone but shit, it was close. Thanks!
Kros_21kros_21 on April 6th, 2009 05:11 pm (UTC)
tutto bene Lavi.
Niente danni qui.
Mi è preso un colpo perchè mi sono svegliata col letto che tremava tipo nell'esorcista. Però tutto bene. :)
*hugs*

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/samjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, buono a sapersi! Qui neanche per fortuna, certo che giusto io riesco a non accorgermene... vabbe, almeno stiamo ancora tutte qui. ;) ♥
Zelda: Sawyer & Jin Hugzelda_zee on April 6th, 2009 06:54 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you're safe, hon!
the female ghost of tom joad: glomping!janie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you. ♥ Thankfully here we just got the peripheral shakes and nothing happened but there... *shudders*
Allie: Peacealliecat8 on April 6th, 2009 07:37 pm (UTC)
I've been thinking about you, sweetie! I've been away from the computer but I knew -- from another flister who knew I'd be worried, that you were ok, and I'm glad that your home and family are fine, too. I'm sure we won't be hearing much good news from the epicenter, though. Stay safe, okay? *HUGS*
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:37 pm (UTC)
Aw, you're too sweet. ♥ ♥ I'm fine though, here we really just heard the shakes (well, THEY heard the shakes, I probably was the only person who didn't) but up there is a disaster and I don't know, it's that my dad actually works there and I'm kinda familiar with the place and argh, that was bad. *sigh* At least here is all fine thought. &hearts
Creature Of Hobbit: slightly drunk shannontellshannon815 on April 6th, 2009 08:50 pm (UTC)
Heard about it from a guy at work who used to live in Perugia - glad you're okay!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost shannonjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 08:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I am, thanks! And oh God, he lived exactly where we had another big earthquake years ago. (Actually, I have some relatives there so ha, small world indeed.)
Creature Of Hobbit: bea klughtellshannon815 on April 6th, 2009 08:57 pm (UTC)
Very small world! His mother in law's still in Perugia (she's a bit strange, keeps telling him he's going to the devil because he's not religious!)

His wife also knew one of the accused in that murder of the British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia last year apparently.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on April 6th, 2009 09:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, so he has an Italian wife? And ha, well, his mother in law's attitude is... I can't say exactly common anymore but it's not that rare either.

And oh God, then I'm not envying her! That story here is first news since it happened, sincerely I can't see those two's faces anymore but geez, knowing one of them? *shudders*
Creature Of Hobbit: mars and katetellshannon815 on April 6th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
I don't know exactly how she knew him (never liked to ask to be honest!)

She's Canadian-Italian. M-I-L is apparently wanting to sell up and move over here though - that attitude isn't common over here so she won't fit in!
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on April 7th, 2009 07:19 am (UTC)
Ha, better that you don't. That story is something you don't want to hear about, or at least I'm so sick of hearing about it that I just wish the trial was over already. ;)

Uhm, she doesn't do a bad thing if she moves because here things aren't that great atm to live, but yeah, giving up the attitude would help if she does. ;)
siluria: General_hugssiluria on April 6th, 2009 10:08 pm (UTC)
Glad you're ok hun!!!!!
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 7th, 2009 07:22 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, thankfully I am. But no harm done here really, just the scare.

I heard about the earthquake last night. I'm so relieved to hear you and your family are doing well.

I've slept through so many earthquakes. When we're lucky it's blink and you missed them.
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 7th, 2009 07:24 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! Yeah, here it really was mostly the scare, but the whole thing was a disaster.

And well, at least I'm not the only one. Because I slept also through another but this round I just can't believe I did. ;)
missy_uselessmissy_useless on April 7th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
This is such a terrible thing, and I'm so glad you and your family are safe! *hugs*

(My internet access sucks at the moment. Blah.)
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on April 7th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks!! ♥ Yeah, everything more or less fine here. We got two other peripheral shakes this morning but nothing that major thankfully.

(argh, no fun! I hope it gets fixed. :( )
