Earthquake jolt

I was making rice pudding and watching the Miss Universe Pageant tonight when I felt a thump that sounded like something hit the side of the house.  I turned on the outside lights to see if anything fell over but nothing seemed out of place.  Then I saw the evening news and found out what it was.  We had another earthquake.  It was a magnitude 4.0 and it barely got mentioned on the news. Have we become so complacent here in southern California that teen texting was a bigger story than my thump? I wanted to know who else felt it, what fell down, who woke up, why it happened, when is the big one? “A 4.0 earthquake hit off the coast of Malibu at 10:45 this evening.  And now, is your teen addicted to texting?”  Whoa… hold on  a minute! What about the big one? When is that happening?  I just read in the L.A. Times that we are WAY overdue for a massive earthquake.  It’s an article I wish I hadn’t read because they talked about liquefied soil and sinking trees and now I can’t sleep! And then this!  I just looked at the map of the San Andreas Fault and I live on the wrong side!

    Oh no Jenny! Not another one!…
    The news really sucks sometimes and when there’s something they really should be talking about they neglect to tell us half the time. I agree kids texting is something we don’t have to know, but when we are in danger of something happening they should inform us on what’s going on. You have every right to feel the way you do about not getting the info about the earthquake…

    You just can’t get away from things that scare you and cause you to lose sleep. No wonder you have nightmares, because of all the stress you carry 🙁
    I know we all stress, but I feel bad for you because you seem over stressed at times. I think an earthquake would scare anyone including me, so you have every right to be scared. I just wish you could get rest and not let it stress you out to bad that it causes you problems with nightmares and what have you. You really do need your rest Jenny and I’m sorry you’re having a hard time when things happen that causes you to lose the sleep you need 🙁
    Other than the sleep lost, I’m glad you’re okay as well 🙂

    Take care,
    Rhonda

    Yep you are right about them reporting all the wrong things. I am surprised your whole house didn’t shake at a 4.0! A thump doesn’t sound like much for an earthquake I am surprised.

    FYI I just bought Rosie O’Donnell’s book Celebrity Detox for $3 at Big Lots! Thought you would get a kick out of that…talk about a slap in the face!!

    Glad you are okay…stirred but not shaken!!

      Kathy, I am told that with this program, you just have to check back. If it helps, you can send questions only to “Ask Me Anything” and then you will have only one place to look.

      People who show very little respect really makes my shin crawl and bugs me. I wouldn’t give a penny for Rosie’s book (Nothing against you of course) 🙂
      I’ve never liked Rosie even before she dissed Jenny’s show and when she dissed Jenny’s show that just made me dislike her even more…

      I need to stop here out of respect for Rosie’s fans and you as well Jenny, because I could go on and on about Rosie Odonnell, because she is one very rude indiviual…
