Earthquake! We're having an earthquake!

Venice drum circle turns violent?? That's terrible news. So there was a 4.4-magnitude earthquake in Los Angeles this morning. It woke me up. I thought somebody had driven a truck into the side of my apartment building. I kept waiting for the ceiling to collapse and end me. Then I tried to go back to sleep and couldn't. Now I'm grumpy. This is a video of two KTLA reporters diving under the news desk during the earthquake this morning. What are you supposed to do during an earthquake anyways -- stand in a doorway? Because if I hadn't just woken up I probably would have handled myself differently. Probably with way more OH SHIT-ing and jumping off the balcony with a bedsheet parachute.

Keep going for the worthwhile video of PANIC.

Thanks to everyone who sent this, every single one of whom has earned a spot in my natural disaster-proof fallout bunker.
