Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Natural Disaster

It turns out there are things other than law school I should worry about. Tsunami's and Earthquakes! What the hell? I guess I should have known, but nobody told me about this crap and I didn't even think about it. This week there was a false Tsunami scare that never happened. A Tsunami! The only thing I know about Tsuami's is what I saw a couple of months ago on t.v. and that was crazy. They also have Earthquakes here - gasp. Now, mostly everyone I talked to tells me that none of these Natural phenomenons are very common, but damn, it's still scary. I mean, we have Hurricanes and Tornados in Texas, but the Hurricanes that hit have always been chafia and the Tornados, well - yea, I guess they're bad. The only thing I knew how to do in Texas was stop, drop and roll.

Yikes! Tsunamis and Earthquakes...isn't it sad how most of the beautiful places are plagued with unpredictable natural disasters. Well just keep a watchful eye and take care of yourself in nature and in Law School.

Don't forget that you are also living just below a dormant volcano (Mt. Rainier) that many say is due for some "activity".

That said, I think it is the rain there that would drive me nutty.
