Lenny Hernandez @LennyHernandez
Was asked if I was going to #WeHoHalloween this year... As fun as it has been in the past, I think my 3 years in a row is plenty enough
Okay, Lenny: a couple of responses from your old math teacher:
1) Don't be such a cunt! You either suffer from memory loss or character impersonation disorder.
If you DID have a good time the last three years, then, what? Too much fun? Lemme tell you, from someone just returning from the cemetery: No Such Thing As Too Much Fun, and you are going to get old and or die someday, so use one of these trite phrases and shift gears. 'Make hay while the sun shines,' or 'he that goes aborrowin' goes asorrowin'...'
And if you didn't like it and were just going along in order to get along, get a candle and sit with it a while. You may be much less fun than you present. No big problem. You just can't claim to be a big fan of events like #WeHoHalloween and catch no shit. Your choice? Your curse?
2) I fergit.
Get to the goddamn party, Lenny, IN COSTUME, and with the knowledge that all we have is today.

Great Shake Out Earthquake Drill Thursday Oct. 16, 2014 10:16 am PST
Here's one way to participate and help keep your family safe:
- Download audio and video "drill broadcast" recordings to play during your drill (Video versions have text captions).Drop, Cover, and Hold On: Have your members Drop to the ground, take Cover under a table or desk, and Hold On to it as if a major earthquake were happening (stay down for at least 60 seconds). Practice now so you will immediately protect yourself during earthquakes! (See this page for what to do if in bed, outside, driving, in a tall building, or other situations.) For people with disabilities or access and functional needs, download our preparedness guide (661 KB) PDF.
- While still under the table, or wherever you are, look around and imagine what would happen in a major earthquake. What would fall on you or others? What would be damaged? What would life be like after? What will you do before the actual earthquake happens to reduce losses and quickly recover?
- (Optional) Practice what you will do after the shaking stops.
