Day 16 金
AM: 81 Bells
I paid off my fountain and went to admire it. As far as I can tell I can’t chuck an axe in it. Which is good. I hated that witch.
This is my third run in with Gulliver. Kokuto hasn’t had him in his town once. Gulliver seemed to wake up with less prodding this time around. Maybe I’m perfecting my technique. I had trouble with his quiz this time. I told Casey the hint and he got it right off the bat. Gulliver told me the country he was going to had a mermaid princess and was said to have mermaids there. Then he got carried away daydreaming about the mermaid princess. That was actually all the clues I got. My choices were:
I chose Denmark in part because of looking on wikipedia. And I was right! Huzzah! I was excited for the reward because of my (tiny) room housing my growing mermaid collection.
Museum Reconstruction —博物館の改築
Having paid off the fountain and celebrated its erection I went back to talk to Shizue about public utilities. Sure enough there was a request for a reconstruction of the museum.
Much like the dream salon, the donation gyroid was placed in the train station. I didn’t have much time to play so I wasn’t able to pay it off in one day. Rats! I’m so impatient.
Maikochan came to visit
The (not lost) kitten showed up in Kokuto’s village today and he escorted her over to my place. Sadly I won’t get anything out of hosting the wayward cat, but I can’t wait to see what he gets.
Mushroom Wall Lamp!
I got a mushroom wall lamp. Despite the fact that I’ve gotten five mushroom beds and two or three tables I realized that I only need one more Mushroom Furniture piece: the Mushroom Closet.
Island Shopping: AKA the Duty Free Shop
The island shop had a mermaid screen. I was able to scrape up enough medals, 40, to purchase it. However I was not able to raise enough medals to buy the island floor there. It cost 100 medals. Unfortunately you can’t view wallpapers and floors on the island so I don’t even know what I missed. 🙁
I tried the “labyrinth tour” to accrue medals. I thought maybe I would have to find my way out of a hedge maze. While there is a hedge maze made of hibiscus bushes, the goal was not to find my way out of it, but to gather a certain number of a specified fruit from within it and then deliver them to Tortimer.
I also took a stab at the “dangerous fishing tour”. You have to catch sharks and piranhas. I had forgotten the size of the piranhas shadow, so I only hunted for sharks.
Day 16 Conclusion
While I didn’t shop on Black Friday I was busy all day and didn’t get to do much. I still have a giant mortgage hanging over my head and I want to pay off the museum addition. I fished a bit late at night but the shops were already closed so I have to sell tomorrow.
Day 17 土
AM: 68 Bells
PM: 67 Bells
The day I’ve dreaded has arrived. Lillian said she wanted to move on the 29th. Why is it always my favorite villager that wants to leave? I told her not to go and I wrote her a letter. I wonder what else I can do to make nicey nice with her…Thoughts?
Inside the camping tent was a bird: Robin. She didn’t mention moving to my city and I had just gotten Lillian’s news so I didn’t mind.
I got my first black tulip today. I haven’t gotten any new hybrids in a while.
From the fortune cookies I got Wario’s Mustache and a coin. I forgot to get a pic of Wario’s Mustache. Soon.
My gift from Denmark while not totally surprising was very cool. He sent me a mermaid statue.
My townies generously donated over 500 bells to the reconstruction of the museum. I was able to contribute the remaining bells to make up the 198,000 bells. I don’t know if it will be reconstructed tomorrow or if it will begin construction tomorrow. Either way I’m excited!
Sadly there was no island floor today, but there was a mermaid table. I bought it after a few tours.
I had a lot of down time today because KC and I were driving back to the bay area from Los Angeles, so I had plenty of time to gather money for my 428,000 home loan. So for the next few hours I’m debt free! Tomorrow I’ll probably tell Nook I want a bigger upstairs.
