A Little Diversion

I was arduously working on my CS program here at my desk for awhile. Suddenly, everything on my desk started to vibrate. Oh, how typical. Probably someone with really loud bass. But I can’t hear anything. And everything keeps vibrating. And then it’s gone. Such is the super-exciting life of an earthquake. Apparently a decent […]
