I keep watching these programs on the educational cable channels that warn of a huge quake coming to my region sometime in the near future. Yes, the San Andreas Fault could give way, and though it would level and totally destroy Palm Springs and San Bernardino, it wouldn't be so bad for the actual LA city area that is some 150 miles away. Mind you, I'd hate to see Palm Springs leveled though, since they are so close just off that dreaded massive famous fault. However, the fault that really worries scientists is apparently the Puente Hills Fault just under the city which is capable of producing a quake larger than a 7.0 on the Richter scale. If that sucker were to go off just beneath Downtown Los Angeles, you can kiss most of this plastic city adios! Luckily I live and work in relatively safe buildings, but not having running water or power for days really freaks me out nonetheless! When will I ever prepare by stocking food and water man? I gotta get with it!
One of my good friends just got fired from his job, and it sounds really unfair! Sounds like this new douchebag director was just hired at his office and decided to clean house by getting rid of my bud in the process! My friend's been there close to three years mind you, and has been relatively competent and well-liked for the most part! And he now gets fired during the Xmas season with a very ridiculous cheap severance package offer to add insult to injury! HOW LAME! I say this boy better take it to the labor board man! He may have a case! I hate certain people in power sometimes, like a certain supervisor I deal with at my own job. EF THESE PEOPLE! They think that because they have power they can abuse it against us little people?! Remember the French Revolution I say! Congrats to the Venezuelans for rejecting their insane president's dictatorial aspirations!
I put up our Xmas tree finally. Aw. See? I'm not an entire Scrooge. And this movie, looks most intriguing:
