Yesterday was movie night for us here at Green Village. This is a way for my colleagues and I to have some quality time and enjoy each other company. Every now and then my boss flips for pizza. Well tonight the boss was not flipping for pizza so I and a few others decide to purchase our own. Off we went to the MWR to fetch our munchies. You can’t have a movie without food.
So once there, we order the pizza and was waiting. All of a sudden the floor began to shake among other things. It did not last that long, but I felt it pretty good. We recognized it right away as being a earthquake.
You can read the details on the quake yourself. No one was hurt, so that is a good thing. Apparently earthquakes are not uncommon here. Afghanistan is prone to earthquakes, which is something that I did not know before coming to work here more than 6 years ago. I also did not know it snowed here. I had never seen any snow on any news footage. I feel real stupid even admitting it now.
A couple of years ago (while I was sound asleep) I was awakened when my bed started shaking. It was shaking so hard that I though someone was in my room. It scared the crap out me. I looked around the room, saw no one was there and believed I was dreaming. I found out the next morning that is was a for real quake. I was kind of happy to hear that. I really thought someone was in my room. 🙂 Anyway.
That is my earthquake story. After the pizza pick up we went on to enjoy the movie pick, Red. I have seen this movie before, but I still loved watching it again. Thursdays are the best day for us to do our get together because Thursdays are our Fridays and Fridays are our 1 day off. We don’t want to see each other on our 1 day off so movie night is held on Thursdays. 🙂 We work together all week and practically live together so really there is no way not to see each other everyday. It is just not possible.
I give the movie a thumbs up. You can read the details of what the move is about at the link below.
I intend to relax and do nothing, but my long run later. You can check out an update of my training schedule on my Half @ 6000 ft page.
