You see, this is just weird.
I write a blog post entitled "A Nation in Shock". And then a day later, this happens.
Call it fate. Call it kismet. Call it synchronicity. Clearly I am a latter-day sage. Perhaps I should offer my services to the Nation.
And yes, we did feel the earthquake. I can't quite recall the finer details, but it went a little like this:
Me: "Bloody hell, did you feel that?"
Katie: "Urgh?" (Eyes closed).
Me: "I'm sure that was an earthquake. Either that, or your digestive issues are back again."
Katie: "Urgh." (Eyes still closed.)
Thrilling stuff. The rights to the TV movie are available, if anyone's interested.
