I missed Joan
There was a bit of family drama via facebook this morning and I kind of forgot about AC while asking Santa for a family that got along. So I didn’t start playing until after noon and didn’t get to buy turnips.
Saturday Night Blues
I went in last night and told K.K. that I was feeling blue. He played K.K. Hymn for me and gave me a copy to take home.
I should probably mention that you can display albums in your room either as furniture or as a poster or picture on the wall. If you’re a K.K. fanatic you can decorate your room to reflect that.
Nelson ran up to me as soon as I stepped out of my house today to gossip. He told me that Lillian and Iris were always together. He thinks they’re starting up a girl’s band together. And of course Nelson wants to be the music producer. I think he’s a pervy little goat.
Snow-person making stuff
Out of the three Snow-Daddies that I have in town I got two numbers for my bingo card. The first was a miss. I only need one number left for a bingo.
I attempted to roll another Snow-Daddy today, but I had my first snow-person blunder. Here is what I started with. I think they were too small.
I’m pretty sure he was telling me he sucked. I don’t think I’ll get anything from him in the mail. The “regular” snowmen send you a piece of the snowman set. For future reference I found a link with his dimensions clearly shown.
I got fortune #30 in Nook’s shop. If you recall this is the “dud” fortune. Last time he gave me a juke box for the dud fortune. This time I got a bug zapper. So, the dud prize differs each time.
The campsite had an igloo on it today. That seems much more practical than a tent. I walked in to see who would brave the cold just to stay in Kasen village. It was Bob (ボブ). This could get confusing because in English there is already a Bob and it’s a cat. In Japanese that cat’s name is different. This Bob is a dog. I imagine his English name will not be Bob.
Even though I think Bob is pretty cute (for a dog—I’m a cat person) I didn’t try and persuade him to stay. I did try and eat his warm-looking soup, but couldn’t interact with it. Rats!
Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve run into the badge master. I didn’t know what he would give me a badge for. Barrista extraordinaire (by cheating), Snow-person mangler? No. He told me my shopping catalog was filling up and gave me the “Catalog Mania B” badge. I don’t know what the B stands for.
These are my current badges. The newest is the little leaf book.
I spy with my little eye…
Hello, what’s this? I saw something weird sitting on the ground below the cliff so I went to investigate. It was something somebody had dropped. I found its owner on the first try.
She gave me a four ball shirt to thank me for returning whatever it was that she dropped.
Happy Home Academy
I forgot to mention I had a congratulatory mail from the HHA this morning. They sent me a reward for reaching 50,000 points. I got a silver plaque.
I tried using the coffee maker Brewster gave me with the coffee beans I got. Nothing happened. I did find out via the catalog that you can’t purchase the coffee maker.
I completed a shift as a perfect barista today (cheating my ass off). I gave Margie her favorite black blend coffee. Then someone new came in! Dora (とめ) . Dora is not one of my villagers. I didn’t know we would get “strangers” in the café. Word about Brewster’s awesome café must have spread!
I made Dora her favorite drink too: Kilimanjaro, full of milk, 3 sugars. Yuck! She gushed about Kasen village’s wonderful café.
I finally made Nelson a drink he liked: blend, a little milk 1 sugar. He responded by telling me it was “Excellent!!!!” My final customer was Pete! He didn’t tell me a single thing about what he liked. He just said he wanted coffee. Fortunately because of my crystal ball I was able to glean that he liked a blend, some milk, and 2 sugars.
After Pete left the rush died down. Brewster gave me some very good coffee beans and an old espresso machine. I haven’t tried out or even looked at the espresso machine yet. I’m too busy wondering if I want to try and scrounge up 900k bells to buy the king’s crown. I don’t think I can scrape it together by 8PM though…
