earthquake day

We had a tiny shaker in L.A. If you want to know what it felt like, here's the exchange I had in the front yard with friend Tamsin:

ME: Wow, that big truck is shaking the ground.
TAMSIN: I don't think that's the truck.

We walked inside.

It wasn't until 30 minutes later, when I tried calling Boy on his cell, that we had this exchange:

ME: I've tried calling him twice and it says, "all circuits are busy."
TAMSIN: Both times?
ME: Y'know, I bet we were on the edge of a bigger one...

Sure enough, Chino Hills, where we were at a demolition derby two weeks ago. Of course local news and CNN are sensationalizing everything. It just makes me realize we should probably strap down the 70 gallon fishtank in the dining room...

Sidebar: Don't you think Rachel McAdams would be the best Lois Lane and/or Catwoman in a new Superman or Batman movie?

You know, my friend and I have had lengthy discussions on who should play Catwoman if they bring her into the third Batman film.

Rachel McAdams wouldn't be all that great. To me, she just isn't sexy enough.

Now if we could find someone exactly like Michelle Pfieffer, only younger, than it would be perfect.

may not have felt like much in your front yard, but it was scary as shit up here on the 8th floor only a mile away.

I've only been in one earthquake here in IL, but it scared the hell out of everyone and shook me out of bed. You should have heard the dogs in the neigborhood...

And on perusal of her photos, I would have to say that I could see her being Batgirl, but probably not Catwoman...she seems too wholesome to be Catwoman. But...I'd love to see her try.

I always liked Carla Gugino for Lois Lane. My Superman would be Jim Caviezel; I always thought he'd be perfect, and I recently saw him playing with his kids at the airport while waiting for a flight and man, he's Superman. I don't have any good ideas for Catwoman, but I wonder how Rosario Dawson would be. In many ways.

Milla Jovovich for Catwoman maybe? She's got the look, not sure the acting chops.

And they will not bring Batgirl into the new Batman, I'm sure.
