AM: 75 Bells
PM: 71 Bells
Heeeeeellllpp I’m sinking! Anyone got decent prices?
Sorry for the teaser yesterday, but I don’t want you guys to jump ship cause I’m not writing as much.
I walked up to the bulletin board to read the message and… The message was just announcing the completion of the fairy tale clock.
Finally my bingo daddy put out. I mean…I got a bingo and he gave me the ski slope wall.
The big news was of course a visit from Gracie Grace. This is only the second time I’ve seen him/her (depending on which localization you’re playing he’s male in Japan female in US…I’m sticking with “him” for now.) After passing his fashion check 4 times the Nook Brothers store upgrades and he sets up shop on the third floor. That’s why his appearance is a big deal.
So, knowing this time that he wasn’t going to evaluate my current ensemble I walked up to him to see what he wanted me to show him.
The theme was “crazy” clothes. I then set about to see what I had that was “crazy.” and what I could scrounge together into a presentable outfit. I found that there are only two pairs of “crazy” shoes the clown shoes, and the engineer boots, and just one pair of crazy socks: the gaudy socks—which look like they match quite well with the clown shoes. I ordered all of the above to decide on shoes after they arrived.
I wanted to make the clown outfit, but I don’t have either the clown shirt or the clown pants and neither does Kokuto. I raided his catalog too. As I was trying to come up with an alternative I found out that the bandage shirt/pants are considered “crazy.” but I don’t have the helmet. #firstworldACproblems There are only two other pairs of pants that aren’t GracieGrace items that are crazy style and I didn’t have either of them…soooo I went with the mummy clown theme.
I ordered all my stuff and then had to wait until the mail came at 5pm to present my crazy self to Gracie.
Finally it’s Valentine’s Day! I didn’t write my townies yesterday because I didn’t want my mailbox to be shaking violently at me this morning. Nevertheless I had a letter from my mom with a shirt, a letter from Shizuechan containing a chocolate cake. Mmmmm cake. And Hakase sent me a box of chocolates.
Your mother will send you either a black tea shirt (for boys), flower pattern sweater (for girls), or cocoa plant (for either). Ryuuji got the black tea shirt. Taiga got the cocoa plant.
Depending on whether you’ve made nicey nice with any neighbors you’ll get in ascending order: nothing, pink roses, purple roses, or chocolates. None of my other villagers got anything from townies, but they don’t play much or talk to many people.
Shizue seems to always send the chocolate cake though.
I was a little worried that hot chocolate wasn’t in the game for Valentine’s day because Brewster didn’t say anything when I ordered coffee. But when I drank it:
I forgot that I set Ryuuji’s birthday to Valentine’s day. Otherwise I might have made him go on a letter writing crusade.
When I sent Ryuuji out today Lillian was waiting to take him to her house for a rocking party!
I actually had to type in a wish. I’m not telling what it was! and then use the microphone to blow out the candles. It was really cute. Lillian then tried to get me to tell her what the wish was and I didn’t tell her either.
The present turned out to be a two tone rug. As I mentioned previously he’s not all that social, and I wasn’t prepared for this birthday. I think with better rapport with villagers you get more swag. My (Yumi’s) birthday isn’t until August, so it’s gonna be a while before I celebrate in style.
