Gah! I don’t know if I should sell my measly 800 turnips or see if tomorrow brings a bigger spike.
I’m home again for a few days. I got back late last night. Thanks for the dramamine tip. I tried it and it helped a little. It made me sooooo tired, but I couldn’t quite relax enough to fall asleep. I made a doctor’s appointment for Thursday so hopefully they can hook me up with something specifically anxiety related. Stupid fear. I wish I could just turn it off.
Today the bulletin board had a message about the upcoming Easter holiday on 3/31. It said that Zipper T. (ぴょんたろう) would be coming to town and to prepare my tools. After looking at the guide, this looks rather involved. It seems I’ll have to smash rocks, shoot down balloons, dig, dive, and fish to get Easter eggs. I believe there are 6 different eggs and if you turn in one of each you’ll get an Easter basket. I think after getting the basket you eat the Easter eggs and, much like fortune cookies, something is hidden inside the egg. It looks like there are three possible items inside the egg, either a ticket that you can trade for a piece of the egg series (I hope you don’t get duplicates like Festivale, that was brutal), a special ticket with a ribbon to trade for Zipper T.’s picture, or a dud piece of candy. This sounds like fun! I hope I have enough time to play.
There were no visitors today which was well and good because I was my usual pre-flight ball of stress. I perused Nookington’s. Reggie/Lazy/whatever his name is had a bamboo shoot for sale. I already had one, and those things grow like weeds so I didn’t buy it.
I decided that my green hair was no longer working for me so I went to the salon and got my hair done. I didn’t have a hairstyle guide handy, so I had to wing it. All I knew was that I wanted pink hair and I did get that part right.
I had not one but two time capsules to return to their original owners. Unfortunately I didn’t remember who wanted me to bury them, so I had to ask around until I got the prompt to give them back. Upon relinquishing them, the recipients opened them, showed me the attached letter, and gave me the item that was inside. Both times I got shirts. Not that exciting.
I also had a camper in town. It was a hippo—also not one of my favorite animals. He didn’t ask to move in. I didn’t ask him to, but we did play a game which I lost. I had to hand over my emergency exit sign. Oh well.
I didn’t bother to change anything in anybody’s room for Saharah but everybody got pretty lucky today.
Since no one has claimed Margie’s old space I decided to put in my final villager there. I named her Minori (Ryuuji’s crush in Tora Dora). I figured I had better have 4 characters to maximize DLC in Japan. I’m hoping to download 2 items from 7 Eleven while I’m there (so excited!). Can anyone hook me up with the rest of them? Pretty please?
Minori’s birthday is 5/5 just cause Cinco de Mayo seemed like a good day for a birthday.
And that’s pretty much the exciting (or not) highlights from the last couple days. 🙂
