Rolled over at 5a and saw the CNN alert about the 7.9 quake in Nepal. A close family friend's daughter is at base camp at Everest right now. It's been a shitty few hours but we were able to hear from her and she and her friend are ok. It's her freaking birthday too. Very scary stuff.
The images look pretty bad and the current death toll is up to 597. Take some time to think/pray for everyone involved and their families.
I've got plenty of swag....it's called a house, two cars, a savings account, and net worth. Not to mention the ability to do whatever I want whenever I want - like decide on a Friday that I'm going to fly to Seattle on a Saturday for a Panthers playoff game.
It's different from 10 years ago - but it doesn't suck.
