Earthquake!


Tonight we splurged. Jeever (my business partner Rajiv) bought us some Domino's. They have this new crispy cheese pizza that really sold us on Domino's. Normally we're "Hut" guys. In fact, there's a sit down Pizza Hut here in San Mateo with the classic $5.99 all you can eat buffet. We did that a lot at the beginning of starting this business, but there's only so much "Hut" one man can take. I broke my old record with 9 slices and two salads last time we went. I had to put an end to that indulgence. Anyway, back to Domino's. Considering the budget we're on, we had to use the 2 large pizza coupons. And that didn't come with the crispy cheese. It was a bit of a bummer.

Anyway, 55 minutes into waiting. The apartment started shaking. Jeever thought I was stomping on the floor - incensed that the pizza hadn't arrived. I thought the washing machine (which was on) was doing a crazy spin cycle. Instead, it was a quake. The largest I've felt for the 7+ years I've been in the Bay Area. The whole place was shaking...we actually got underneath doorways. Jeever was laughing his ass off because I was under a non structural doorway, unknown to me. Had it been worse, I would have been first to go. Glad he was laughing.

It turned out to be a 5.6 quake, centered fairly close to Foster City - near Milipitas.

I'm all for full disclosure and I've done some digging. According to my sources the Pizza was actually paid for by both parties. I'd like a retraction and formal apology as soon as possible

Dude...you know Jeever's been in a funk. I was just trying to make him feel responsible for something this week. Poor guy.

I would have been laughing at you, too.
