Berkeley was rocked early this morning by a magnitude 4.2 earthquake centered about 6 miles from the city.

According to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake registered 4.2 on the Richter Scale and occurred at 4:42 a.m. The quake was centered 2 miles east-northeast of Oakland's city-center.

The Berkeley Police Department reported at 4:57 a.m. that as of that time no damage or injuries had been reported.

The last time an earthquake of similar size hit the Bay Area was March 1, when a 4.2 magnitude quake originated in Walnut Creek.

Peter Jackson No More

New Line dumped Jackson on the Hobbit movie. HURRAH!

-reads articles-


In an email to a Tolkien website,, the director said that New Line had made contact to say that it would no longer be requiring his services or those of his associates on making The Hobbit or Lord of The Rings 'prequels’.

PREQUEL?!?!?! WTF. How do you do a prequel to LOTR? -points to The Hobbit- Can you please explain to me what this is if it's not a prequel?

So, Jasmine and I just got done rollerblading/skating around my dorm floor. That was freaking awesome.

Although, now the entire floor knows that John has mono. Fern told Matt not to touch a cup that had M&Ms in it. And she told me to tell Matt why not to touch it. And I said that my boyfriend had mono. So yeah, out he runs screaming into the girls bathroom to wash his hands and screaming that someone has mono and what not. So now the entire floor knows. They're all mad at me. And I got 3 comments that I should dump him from them alone. Have I mentioned how tired of that I am? I mean, what the hell. Everyone's first reaction is "he's cheating on you." Come on people. Am I like, really, the only one who dosen't think that he's cheating on me? I mean, even my little sister said that he better not be kissing other girls. Goodness people. I mean, not only are you insulting him by saying that he's not commited enough to me to keep his mouth off other people, but I feel like they're insulting me. I don't know why. I mean, I don't know. I just feel insulted that that's the first thing everyone thinks.

I don't care what they think. I believe him. I love you babe.

Weeeeeeee updates?

or those of you who haven't kept up with my random rantings and bouncings, John was here for the weekend. I had a great time. You have no idea how much you really miss a person until you have to say goodbye again. I didn't do half of my homework that I should have. Bad me.

Um, my sister's boyfriend (of almost 9 months) broke up with her the other day. I will be removing him from the face of the plannet later. I'll let you all know how that goes.

Family is coming out next weekend (woooo not) so that will be amusing. I want them to go away. I'll take the sister and I'll take the chicken they thought the were going to bring. That'll be enough. They can stay home. I don't want to be nagged for a weekend straight. -mutters-

I had a light bulb in calc today. It was wonderful. I'm like YAY! It makes sence. The calc teacher showed us the other formula today and said we can use either to solve the problems. and yeah, just some stuff clicked, so it was great.

I have to work tomorrow - BLAH. I also have to study for a quiz on wed. which I will totally bomb just so you know. It's all so currently 89.3° in my dorm room. It's freaking hot. HOT I TELL YOU HOT! -melts-
