Long story made short: the reason I haven't kept up with this journal is because much of the past week was spent in a foul mood and I'd rather not remember most of the details.
On the plus side, we've been able to enjoy various goodies from local restaurants, watched various movies, and done some hiking.
Recently I've been playing The Hunter: Call of the Wild, and it's not really my cup of tea. It has a very high difficulty curve compared to other FPS games, and most of the game seems to be spent staring at poop. I'm slowly getting better, but I'm also not really encouraged to continue trying. Once I've seen enough to give it a fair review, I'll probably stop playing it altogether.
One thing that is somewhat amusing about it is mom's response to the game -- out of all of the games I've played over the years, this is the only one that's actually made her leave the room in horror.
In other words, I can play a game where the developers used actual footage of car accident victims to help them design their monsters and she doesn't bat an eye. I could give a demon a detailed vivisection with a chainsaw and she wouldn't care.
But you shoot one deer...
