Bry moved back in yesterday, is this an omen?

So, I was late for work. For the first time in my life I was able to say "The earthquake got me out of bed."
At about 1:00am when me and Bry had just gotten into our beds, I was half way through a last smoke before turning lights out when the house began to shake. It was very unexpected, I did wondser what the hell was going on (never having been in an earthquake before) and it didn't last very long.
It ends and I get up and speak to Bry:
Bry:"What was that?"
Me:"I think it was an earthquake."
Bry:"We don't get earthquakes in Birmingham."
Me:"Actually I know some people who were at work during one, I don't think we've had one since the '70's."

So we turn on the radio and flip through local stations to find out what happened. What we found:
"We've just had a small earthquake, don't worry."

So it got me kind of wired and I didn't get as much sleep as I planned, I slept through my alarm (by an hour and a half) and I was late for work. It was fun.
