So apparently a massive earthquake hit Christchurch this morning an hour before I left Helena (I'm in Salt Lake City, whoooo Mormon Country) and I don't know if my friends and my kitty are alright :( Well, and my stuff, but that can be replaced.

Most reports I am seeing say only minor damage but not what I needed to hear an hour before I fly away. And, I am sure, not what anyone in the South Island needed. Shit, son. And power is out and mobile services are down.

Someone talk to meeeeee!

EDIT: Holy shit... http://www.stuff.co.nz/lightbox/the-press/news/4095796/?KeepThis=true&TB_iframe=true&height=560&width=640

Now I have to board.

I'm glad I've been worried for everyone of you guys all night! Hugs.

I just saw about it and was worried about you. I couldn't remember when you flew out. Not a relaxing way to start a long flight! I'm glad you're ok. Keep us posted on the rest. I am so glad we got to see you. LY

Boy called and told me while I was ON THE WAY to the airport though he was relieved to know I wasn't there yet. Everything is okay, thank goodness!

Dad has checked our house and said that Adriadne is okay! A few things fell over and my room is apparently a mess (!) but nothing broken.

Airport is closed at the moment but they hope it will be up again by midday, so hopefully you won't get stuck in auckland. Might be some backlogging though.

Hopefully you'll be able to check this before you arrive home too...

Have managed to check in with most people we know and they are all fine. The worst damage seems to be Cath and Jen's side of town but they're alright. Lots of big aftershocks. Toilets may be more of an issue than power but time will tell. A state of emergency hasn't been declared at the moment but that might change. Have sent you a text but the mobile networks were starting to fail but might be ok by the time you land.

There's bottles of water and that under shelves in the pantry! Hope you don't need that either but they did warn everyone to conserve water.

So surreal. But glad we have that earthquake kit, hmm? Sheesh.

Thank you SO MUCH for texting me, Beautiful. You and Alina both saved my sanity.

I'll tidy up so don't worry about that. LOVE YOU!

No problem! Panic is the last thing we want! I'm so so thankful we're on 2degrees because it works in Nimbin and vodaphone doesn't, so I got half a dozen texts when i turned mmy phone on.

Have to go now butsafe travels!
Künstliches Mädchen | ☘Lara Kelley Gallagher☘: Boat that Rocked~Dance!artemisofluna on September 4th, 2010 03:17 am (UTC)
I was actually quite good. I kept myself from reacting until I knew and though I envisioned horrible things, I didn't panic outwardly. Though when I heard everything was okay I had to go into the bathroom stall and have a big old cry from relief.

Love you!
Raenphfa on September 4th, 2010 04:27 am (UTC)
I'm glad! I think I was too asleep to panic properly though I can still now feel, you know, the shock. I am very distracted today. I keep envisioning horrible things even though I know most people are okay. The KAOS 48 hour party is still happening today, even.

Don't worry about picking up stuff in my room, I can deal with that. Oh the photos, though.
Künstliches Mädchen | ☘Lara Kelley Gallagher☘: Love Actually To me you are perfectartemisofluna on September 4th, 2010 05:54 pm (UTC)
Those KAOSians, they party hard.

If you don't want me to, I won't but I don't mind! I won't snoop ;) And I have a week to do it since Uni was cancelled. BUT I wouldn't necessarily want someone messing with my stuff so I won't be offended either if you'd rather do it! Same goes for Leah. Just let me know!
Raenphfa on September 5th, 2010 01:43 am (UTC)
Oh I don't mind the snooping! I encourage people to snoop my books. I just want to see the damage for myself, really.

Fair enough! I might move your laptop out of there. The chair caught your bookcase, thus saving the laptop (AWESOME) but there are STILL aftershocks. I was sleeping on the sofa and one happened and Ariadne had a FIT. It was hilarious.

I did a shop with Peter and Alina (they are wonderful and they fed me lunch too!) and so we have things! I am boiling water so I can fill up the empty jugs with it and put them in the fridge as well. HOPEFULLY by the time you get back the water will not need to be boiled, but you never know. Better safe than sorry.

OMG Barrington had NO bread. Actually none. Not a single loaf of ANYTHING. It was eerie. We went to Coupland's anyway and it's cheaper but seeing it was pretty surreal.
Raenphfa on September 6th, 2010 12:49 am (UTC)
Oh yes, do move my laptop, that would be wonderful :)

Yes! Boil all the water, don't get sick! I'm glad shopping wasn't too much of a nightmare, scary about the bread though but not really surprising. Was tthere still fruit and meat?

My landlords (bless them) and friends say the house and the cat is fine and I've heard back from most people. Some damage, but we seem to be okay. Lucky.

We're all fine! No deaths or injuries, tho I keep feeling aftershocks and I don't know if I'm imagining it or not... it freaked me the fuck out tho o.O

But I have power and water, and I'm going to make myself a toastie so I'll feel better.

Yikes. Just freaking yikes.

SO glad you are okay! Enjoy your toastie, darling!

To say the least! I'll come visit when you're back, make sure all is well.

And I did.

I would love that, BB. You can bring yourself and Simon Amstell! Though the you is far more important. I will feed you Twinkies if you feel morbidly curious. And I got your marshmallow whip, though they didn't have any of the Monster House dolls which is bullcrap. I looked everywhere! BUT I have my mother still on the lookout since she goes shopping all the TIME and she can just put it in a box for me if she finds it! You can send as much stuff as you can in these boxes for a flat rate, it's awesome!

Good stuff!
Sena Flash: simon ~ get an adultmoment_of_sen on September 4th, 2010 03:35 am (UTC)
That tasty dish Simon Amstell shall accompany me, oh yes! Twinkies! I shall have to try one, just to see.

Thanks for looking for those dolls anyway =) Appreciated!
Künstliches Mädchen | ☘Lara Kelley Gallagher☘: IT Crowd~Quick Kiss me!artemisofluna on September 4th, 2010 05:52 pm (UTC)
Whoohooo! Twinkies are the golden delicious devil! :D

No problem, it was fun! I just wish I'd found one. Tricksy minxes.

The damage seems to be largely non-human, luckily.

Structural damage SUCKS because it will be expensive, but it is far better than human damage, oh yes. I'm sorry about your chimney and your stuff, but I am glad about the you. :)
