    I swear on my life I think an Earthquake just woke me up, the ****ing room was shaking and all I could hear was CD's on the shelf rattling!

    **** me that **** me up, I really thought I was going to die then

    I'm glad I read the news account. I was going to apologize straight away since I had beans for dinner.

    Hope damage is held to a minimum.

    seems like its a wide part of the country that was hit, be interesting to see if my parents were affected, they are south of london and it seems like the quake hit more of a diagonal line

    I woke up with the feeling something was wrong just as the tremor hit here. The whole house shook, rattling everything, and it went on for a minute or so.
    I woke up just prior to the last earthquake (about 6 years ago). Most people sleep through it so if you wake up just before it you either have a sixth sense or are nearer the animal than most. :lol:

    or you just really, really hate surprises...:lol:


    It's good to hear no one got hurt. I have friends in London and I got really scared there for a moment. Hope no major damage.
    I had an eartquake wake me up once, lighter than this one, and yes it's a weird experience (this was in the Netherlands where an earthquake is really rare, so that thought doesn't immediately enter your mind when the room shakes)
