Caira playing Minecraft

Garrett and Caira shared a Minecraft game world on their iPad. It didn’t end well:

whats the thing for mind craft again? Caira had a house on the ipad that garrette exploded and covered in lava and she had a melt down so I told her I would put it on the computer so he couldn’t play hers again

Caira built a house. Garrett somehow found, bucketed, and then dumped lava on it. Innocent animals were inside. None were spared.

Caira said this is the best day of her life since she gets to play it on the computer

I had to help Marilyn set up and run Minecraft over Skype, and then show Caira how to get out of a giant hole. Literally, they started a game, turned around, and fell into a cavern. Only magic can describe this.

It has a small chance to delete a random configuration file in the directory you leave.

Snow-ocalypse 2014

posted in ireland with 0 comments

The snowy apocalypse reached Galway today. Elders announced that were “going to go out for a walk” that they wouldn’t return from, mothers and fathers wept bitter tears as newborn babes were left on rocks to die of exposure, and household pets were skinned and eaten. The dead outnumbered the living, and the living envied the dead.

O you who know what we suffer here, do not forget us in your prayers.

A snowy nightmare in Galway
