Marlies those photos are just brilliant!!!!  The one of Perth especially is gorgeous.  Isn't it just one of the cleanest cities you have ever seen!!!  It's honestly spotless.

And of course I love the Melbourne ones because that where I'm from.  It's nice to see it like that because it's often something taken for granted when you see it so often.

Hope you enjoy Tassie although I wonder how you will spend four weeks there!!! Shocked  Very beautiful though.

1.  I survived the earthquake.  This was my thought process during the quake.  "Whoa, earthquake.  ::10 seconds later::  Wow, medium-sized earthquake.  ::10 seconds later::  Eesh, big earthquake."

2.  Look for many ORG Reunion updates this weekend.  I've been brainstorming things for quite a while and I'll get everything written and organized in the coming days.

3.  The Dodgers just acquired Manny Ramirez.  That might not mean a lot to non-baseball fans, but it's a good thing for me and my season tickets.  Be happy for me.

4.  Going out to dinner tonight.

5.  Hope everyone has been well.

Wheee.  Snap

Hey Heidi!

1 - Glad that you're OK and that you survived the earthquake! I thought I heard something about an earthquake in California, but to be honest, haven't been too in tune with the national news as of late. Sad

2 - I can't wait for updates!! I'm excited about the ORG reunion and again, please let me know if you need any help with anything!!

3 - Way to go Dodgers!!! I don't know much about baseball, but I'm definitely happy for you!! Celebrate

4 - Where did you decide to go for dinner tonight? Some place fun I hope!! Enjoy your weekend!

5 - Hope you're doing well too! Great to hear from you! Grin

Can't wait to read the news on the ORG reunion!

Well I'm a little biased because I'm a very proud Australian, but you should definately come and check things out over here at the very least. 'Tis a very beautiful country indeed.

Holy crap!!!  You had an earthquake - I didn't even hear anything about it and we normally always get these things in our news.  Of course if it was just today then it may show up on our evening news shortly.  Definately glad you are okay!!

Congrats on the Dodgers recruit - may he bring your team much success.

And yay for the ORG reunion update.  On that subject, if anybody would like to wear a reunion sig, beautifully created by our very own Mel (Sooks) please do so.  The link is   http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e394/metalmaidenmel/Sigs/Orgreunion08sooks01.jpg .

Heidi, glad to hear you survived the quake! 

Just had to pop in and say:

3. I would like to predict a White Sox (who just picked up Ken Griffey Jr. making the rest of the baseball season heavenly in my neck of the woods) vs. Dodgers (no better addition I can think of than Manny Ramierez, amazing!)  World Series 2008.   Wink

I live north of San Diego and i slightly felt the earthquake. It was a wobbly feeling over here, as though i was suddenly tipsy.

Joe Torre and Manny Ramirez together! If anyone can keep Manny in line, it will be Joe. Manny is a character like few others and i wonder how he'll behave in L.A. He really wore out his welcome in Boston but i predict he will be on good behavior for the remainder of the season. As a Yankees fan i have no objection to the trade.  Wink

I am a longtime Griffey fan but i am curious to see how he'll do in center field at this late stage of his career, if that's where they intend to play him. He can still crank out the homeruns though.

Ohmigosh (I know this is old) but that quake was indeed very freaky. I thought for sure "this is 'the one.'" Thankfully it wasn't. But still! I was in class at the moment and when the desk started shaking I thought it was someone else at my table doing it. Then it hit me and I knew what was going on. My class is in a bungalow so it was pretty shakey and everyone was just sitting there looking around. I'm sure we were all scared crapless and had no idea what to do. Of course as soon as it finished, cell phones where whipped out left and right but none were working. Funny sight nontheless! Anyway, wow. Definitely scary stuff.

Even though I've been absent for some time, I'm looking foward to the reunion and WILL be here!

I've lived in Southern California my whole life, so I'm fairly used to earthquakes (whatever that means).  However, there hasn't been a big quake in my area in quite some time so during the shaking I started to wonder, "Is this The Big One?"  A lot of the people I work with are from other parts of the U.S. and hadn't been in an earthquake before.  They had no idea what as going on.  One guy even tossed his cookies, if you know what I mean.   Undecided 

4 - Where did you decide to go for dinner tonight? Some place fun I hope!! Enjoy your weekend!

We went to Red Lobster.  Seafood salad + Cheddar Bay biscuits = for the win.  I have some friends who cannot stand Red Lobster and others who, like me, love it.  I'm sure Hollywood and Los Angeles are home to some of the best restaurants in the world, but I love me some Red Lobster.  Interestingly enough, there really isn't even a Red Lobster local to Hollywood or Los Angeles.  You have to drive about 30 minutes out for the nearest one.  Dedication.  Snap

3. I would like to predict a White Sox (who just picked up Ken Griffey Jr. making the rest of the baseball season heavenly in my neck of the woods) vs. Dodgers (no better addition I can think of than Manny Ramierez, amazing!)  World Series 2008.   Wink

I would totally support that.  Smiley  Carlos Quentin hit the homerun ball I caught in 2006 (when he was still with Arizona).  The trade to Chicago has done him well.  His 28 homers puts him 4th in the entire league.  Dodgers vs. White Sox, bring it!

Ohmigosh (I know this is old) but that quake was indeed very freaky. I thought for sure "this is 'the one.'" Thankfully it wasn't. But still!

I have some friends who honestly want to get The Big One over with.  They can't stand wondering if it's going to happen five minutes from now, five years from now, or fifty years from now.

ORG Reunion information coming late tonight or tomorrow afternoon.  It depends how late tonight's Dodgers game goes.  Good times, my friends.  Good times.

I need to retract this statement.  My complete lack of baseball knowledge (hey I'm Australian, we don't get a lot of it here) means that whilst I was hoping I could congratulate you on a great recruit Heidi, it totally devastated Shell and her team.  So I retract it and claim to be Switzerland in this instance.

Ahhh, you so didn't have to do that hun (although it is so in your nature to try to be Switzerland-like  Wink) but I didn't mean to cause any trouble!!!  Whoops! Sorry, Heidi.  Just concerned that the Red Sox will be so much less powerful without Manny.  And now I'm concerned that not only Heidi but also Jim (and all other Yankee fans like him!  Grin) will be headed my way with pitchforks  Embarrassed

Sorry guys!  I promise to be good now.   Grin

I survived the earthquake.

I'm so glad to hear that both you and Kami are okay!!!!   Smiley

I saw that he already made SportCenter's highlight reel as a member of the White Sox.  Smiley
