Don’t Piss Off Nature …

So yesterday I was on the phone when I suddenly started to feel sick … the sort of sick you get on a boat that is being rocked side to side.

Imagine my surprise [read: horror] when I looked up and saw the blinds on my 36th floor office window were also rocking … and then it hit me … it was an Earthquake and my building was doing the quaking!

Anyway, we all left as quickly as we could but I was astounded to see that the majority of people in the building stood either about 10 feet from the building or in the main foyer.


It all happened again abit later [and yes, they all stood close to the building again!] and while it was distressing for us, I can’t imagine how horrible it was for the poor people in Indonesia where the centre of the quake was.

I just hope not too many people have been affected as they’ve had enough suffering from earthquakes already.

Anyway, I’m off to Thailand now, to bully … I mean mentor … a bunch of media people about creative thinking [I hope to have lots to write about regarding the level of training given to staff by agencies] so as it might be a couple of days before I post again, I thought I’d highlight a few things of probably no-interest …

1 I’ve updated Jill’s blog of stupid comments. [I am sure she’s over-the-moon about that]

2 I’d love it if you could give Rob’s petition another push [maybe give it a ention on your own wonderful blogs?]

3 Can you please say ‘Welcome Back Billy’ as the poor bugger has had abit of a bad time and probably needs some lovin’

So till next time …
