Happy note: on the way there, I saw a line-painting truck on the road. It was painting lines! I was all ecstatic about it... it was so cool! I missed the earthquake, though. I was in my car at the time, and wouldn't have been able to notice it anyway.
My grandpa is so sweet. I can always count on him to provide me with a lifetime supply of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and AA batteries.
