I'm sure I wasn't the only one...

A week ago I was enjoying watching my team be humiliated when I felt movement on the back of my chair. "I wonder who that is?" I thought, "Or perhaps it's the cat or dog"

Then I realised I wasn't at my parents. I'm at home. I live alone. There's nobody else here. No animals. It's just me. That of course begs the question, "Who is kicking my seat?"

I didn't even bother to turn around. I knew there would be nobody there. I just sat there, vibrating momentarily, and wondering what was going on. Then I heard the washing machine, and remembered I had a load in. "Wow, that washing machine is out of control tonight. I know it shakes pretty badly sometimes, but it's violent enough that I'm feeling it out here"

Not concerned, I let the washing machine do its thing and continued to be enthralled in the game.

About an hour later one of the commentators mentioned and Earthquake in Melbourne (about 100kms south of here) which measured 4.7 on the Richter scale. It's a good thing they said something, otherwise I would have turned up to work on Monday going "What Earthquake? Oh, so THAT'S what that was!"

Maybe my washing machine is okay after all.


  1. That, or maybe you have poltergeist activity at home...Now, that would be particularly weird, since you don't like living with others...well, you'd be the one to scare the sht out of them so that they would leave you alone :P

  2. That's funny. I would have actually turned around to see what the heck. Specially if I were alone.
    My washing machine actually does shake my house...lol...

  3. I didn't call you a stalker! I said I didn't want to seem stalker-ish.

    You're supportive. And I like that you stalk my blog. It makes me feel like a superstar. =D

    Where have you been this past few days? I've missed you!

  4. Maybe it was your washing machine... Your washing machine must have been having a tantrum. Lols...kidding. Anyhow, if that was me, I probably would have turned around to see what that was. Next time you really should be more careful and look around. Be safe! =)

  5. Ha, silly goose. I got real excited, I thought it was a ghost story initially.

  6. My washing machine can give the house a pretty good shake, but I think this is classic malre reaction vs. female reaction. I'm going to speak for the majority of women when I say that I would NOT have continued to watch the game until I knew exactly what was going on behind me! Sheesh. Men...

  7. Earthquakes are interesting till we see the destruction they cause.

  8. Thrice- I think I would be unpleasant to live with until the ghost left, rather than scare it away.

    Hillbilly Duhn- I knew it couldn't be anything, I wasn't going to spend time turning around.

    Badriyyah- You said you didn't want to post too many comments or you'd look like a stalker, and I post plenty of comments at your blog.

    ChinkyGirLMeL- I said to my mum later it could have still been my washing machine, just shaking the whole state instead of just my flat.

    Alafolie- No ghosts.. unfortunately.

    KathyB- I'm sure I would have turned around if.. no, there's not much that would have made me turn around.

    Sameera- Luckily, there was no damage this time (that I'm aware of)


Every time you comment, I love you a little more...
