so i'm sitting here typing away and i start to feel something. and i'm thinking at first i'm just imagining things. but it doesn't stop. and i'm wondering if perhaps this swaying could please stop because it's making it very hard for me to concentrate on my work. really – for a split second, i was even annoyed. but then i start to worry that i'm going through a dizzy spell and i might pass out.
of course, it then dawns on me that i was feeling a tremor (the earthquake hit ottawa – our national capital – at 5.5).
that's about the most exciting thing that has happened to me all week.
