||Ze big shoppink
Posted on July 3rd, 2012
|It was time again for the big shopping. We got an early start, partially due to the fact that I woke up early. That was largely because I spent the night graphically dreaming of throwing up, and when I roused I was more than ready to stop doing so.
The shopping itself wasn't too bad; there were two families with a billion kids that we made an attempt to get around, but that was pretty much it.
We stopped off at the market for some other things, and then got stopped on the way to Subway. A train had stopped on the tracks. We ended up taking the long way around to go to another Subway in the area.
I spent the remainder of the day poking at various things while also playing some Castleville. The main effort was spent on The Notebook, which didn't get very far; I only got about two pages done before it felt like I was just pushing too much. Simply put, I've been transcribing these pages for a week straight (not counting yesterday). It's gotten a bit tiring.
The other thing I did a little work on was Emo, which I worked on by furthering the Terraria game along. With a little more gameplay I'll be ready to snap the pictures for the next batch of entries.
Castleville proved amusing. While waiting on something, I skimmed through the market and found a new outfit for my character. It's a nifty Viking get up and didn't cost very much. Thus my character looks like he just stepped off a drekar. To compliment this, I did a little digging online and renamed my kingdom Kastalithorpe.
Or Castleville in Old Norse.
That pretty much summed up the news for today.
The link for today is a modern solution to the old goal of alchemy: turn common metal like copper into gold!
