So I just got Minecraft…

My husband and I just got Minecraft. Our son has been asking for it for a while now. We are all addicted! In one week (real time) I have walled off an entire village that is now full of villagers, found myself a productive mine and built a castle tower in the middle of a lake.

My son (he’s 8) was complaining about Creepers. I got him to laugh by saying this: Creepers always have this sad look on their face, and then they see you. They get all excited to see you that they charge toward you in their sheer happiness. But then their excitement becomes so intense that they cannot contain it anymore and explode.

Enderman likes to frequent my little village. He took a block from a wall I dug out, took one from a villagers garden, chilled out in the second floor of my house for about 10 minutes (I think he may have been reading my books, lol) then vooooped out. I replaced the missing blocks and two game days later found another hole in my wall. So far I have no intention of attacking him. I haven’t been playing long enough to have any of the really cool mined stuff. Although I wish I could befriend him. Imagine, “hey I need this one block…” and Enderman being like, “don’t worry, I got it.” Vooop!

My friend Andrew created a BESM character that never got to get played, but he did ask me to draw him up. Presently still unnamed, he somehow hides feathered wings beneath his coat. He was described as “not a particularly clean character who has obvious tan lines from the goggles he wears while flying. A bit short and slim with blue eyes and shoulder-length sun-bleached hair.” Spent about a week trying to get the angle right and I still think his shoes look goofy, but Andrew really wanted him looking up toward the sky.

My new d20 decided it wanted to start rolling bad. It has been set aside and is now being punished as an example to the others.

That is adorable.

It is my experience that dice perform much better when berated.

#i know it’s fucking random and I’m supposed to a rationalist #but once the die start rolling skepticism goes out the window

100% true no lie proven scientifically.

If the dice start rolling badly, i completely forget that they are inanimate objects.

I find it amusing how this will sit unnoticed and then suddenly there is a spurt of reblogs, lol. I never though it would get so many reblogs and likes! :)
