Emily and Diana are off at the World Resort teaching English and I'm sitting at home, um, working. I was actually in the middle of writing an email to a volunteer, telling her when and where to meet me so that we can go dig up some coconuts for Sunday's tree planting.

That's when the apartment started shaking. It wasn't a big tremor, but it was strong enough to feel like someone was outside shaking our apartment building.

It was probably just one of those hundreds of small tremors that are felt all over the world every day, but I can't help but wonder if it was a stronger earthquake somewhere far away. It would be just my luck to have a tsunami hit Saipan the year that I decide to move back.

(If you're reading this in a few hours and the news says that Saipan was washed out by a tsunami....send money.)

I didn't feel it...:( I was locked in the ivory tower with twenty-one extremely spoiled children. I miss all the cool stuff.

Want to help us take them to the movies this evening? Bring leashes. Oh, wait, you have model camp tonight.

sounds minorly terrifying. the earthquake and the spoiled children. So... is there any surfing in Saipan? If these quakes keep up, you think I can catch a few waves! ;)

There's surfing in Saipan like there's English in Takaoka. Get it?
