||Busy for a day without working
Posted on April 1st, 2012
|Mom's hip is still bothering her a lot, so today was largely spent with me doing her chores. Granted, I didn't do everything she does on a daily basis, but it's worn me out.
During the afternoon I noticed she was looking for things to do, as she was stuck on the couch with the computer for longer than usual. I decided to help out here too, and set up a Steam account for her, complete with a handful of games. I spent a long time showing her how everything worked and showing her how to play one of them.
Most of the rest of the day was spent playing Terraria. I took a number of screen caps that will be useful for Emo the Explorer while I did so. Lots of building, but the biggest effort went into flatting out a large area so there's a handy tree field nearby. After that I broke out the bombs and began mining. I only blew myself up once. Found a lot of iron ore, some copper ore, an unexpectedly large amount of water and a demon altar, but no gold chests or anything.
Today's round of April Fool's jokes were largely annoying as expected. Discorded Whooves however did a good one, starting a small arc that was both unexpected, cannon and resolved by the end of the day.
