Good lord

Look at those graphics! Time dulls even the most vivid of memories.

Went out today, had an interview with a woman about getting Carers allowance, which basically means I’d have a bit of money, instead of absolutely nothing! She helped fill in the forms and everything. Then we went to Tescos, bought some Boczek (Basically really fatty, ready to eat ham. The English wiki page just redirects to “Bacon”) and some more Pukka tea. The Three Mint is made of awesome and they don’t sell it in the Tescos near here… (They don’t sell much really, middle of absolute nowhere…) also had a veggie burger at the pub nearby before getting a taxi home.

I really, really miss being able to get to a bookshop. I want a nice, second hand bookshop, where I can just seek out the scifi section and stare blankly for ten minutes before grabbing something random off the shelves. All that’s within a bus ride is… *gets distracted by google maps* Apparently there is one book shop, hidden away, selling mostly “sports and celebrity books” oh well. The only other thing that’s there is a WH Smiths, and their books are so expensive. What few they have.

Amazon is great, but it isn’t the same.

All in all, it was a long day, but good I guess. After that we came home, put the shopping away, and I played Dwarf Fortress for a bit. My favorite dwarf died though! ;_; She ran out the front gate for some spurious reason and detected a goblin ambush with her face.

Here’s the map of my current fortress, anyway. I added a load of Points of Interest at the side. It’s interesting to see how it grows over time. I didn’t know the DFMA linked maps together like that.

  • lol. You want old graphics? Look at the stunning artwork on this ad:

    The only Tescos near here are tiny ones, and absolutely useless for anything. However, Sainsburys sell that pukka tea; we had some but John drank it all – he likes the spearmint.. Why can one buy endless varieties of peppermint tea, but hardly any spearmint?

    Books… yes, know what you mean. No decent bookshops here either – Even the library isn’t worth joining. I keep meaning to look into some of the online book exchanges – green metropolis, read it swap it, etc…

    Sorry about Kib Koltenshed.. Will explore the fortress later :-)
