Stalk Market for Friday, July 5
AM: 49 Bells
PM: 44 Bells
Wednesday Night in Hanabi
I opened my gate to let Jared from Skyloft visit (hey twin!) visit and it turned into a party. It always seems to.
Someone (I’m looking at you Teo) had their conversation window and no one else could leave. I couldn’t disband the wifi session. It was a little weird. My guests were forced to stay. Oh the horror!
Fortunately visitors to Hanabi went to the island with me and helped me amass the 150 medals I needed to buy the treasure chest. Thank you everyone! Fortunately that’s the most expensive item they sell on the island and I have both of the 100 medal items, so I shouldn’t have to do that again. I don’t want to do the elite hammer tour again for a little while…
I also finally caught a saddled bichir! And after a little bit of swimming a horseshoe crab. Incidentally, the horseshoe crab was the final sea creature that Yumi needed to complete her diving encyclopedia. She got one too and didn’t get anything for it. Boo!
Here are the critters I need to catch for July:
They’re all bugs!
- leaf bug
- jewel beetle
- stick bug
- evening cicada
I accidentally didn’t let Rooney in when he unexpectedly tried to visit. I somehow didn’t notice his bubble and he just left. Oops. Sorry Rooney. Too busy counting pirate treasure.
4th of July in Hanabi
I feel kind of let down that there was no mention of 4th of July in Animal Crossing. I know that August is full of fireworks, but couldn’t Isabelle have given us a hot dog hat or something?
If you saw my picture from the 4th, you know that I did my best to look
Apparently that saddled bichir was enough to get me another badge from Phineas—for those wondering when he shows up, I just read that he only shows up on sunny days, so if it’s raining don’t bother to look for him.
Hairstyle a Day
I’m not loving this one, but the hairstyles I’ll be sporting for a bit aren’t meant to be loved, just meant to move on through the list to unlock men’s hairstyles. Why do I want men’s hair styles? Probably just cause they’re there.
My husband and I didn’t do much for the fourth. We decided to stay home, watch TV and monster hunt together. I also got it into my head that I really really wanted to get a new train station and I was up to 76 visitors, so I spent the better part of the afternoon visiting myself. I’m pleased to report that I unlocked the new train station designs, stole money from Yumi, and had it built.
More Eery Glowing
The manhole cover was open again. You’d think they’d put an alarm on it or something. I hopped down and interrupted a conversation between Resetti and Don. They have a new toy, a voice recognition system. I may have accidentally used it and blasted off Resetti. Oops. That’s probably not scoring me brownie points towards his picture.
Kokuto (my husband) had a petition to sign so he came over, and Soleil gave me a petition so I then went to his town and got it signed (stealing all of his perfect apples along the way).
Gah! Hakase (Cobb) you need a new shirt. Kokuto, get on that please.
Today in Hanabi
First thing’s first I had to check on the new station. I love it.
ZOMG GRACIE GRACE
We Interrupt this Fashion Check
for a trip to Ireland! Stephen from Shamrock had 377 Bell turnip prices and I (as usual) misjudged my market. Sorry Stephen, I just couldn’t get Julian on the train. Nook was out of dramamine and as I said, he gets motion sick. That would’ve been messy!
Almost out of Debt
I then paid off my loan for the right (beach/island) room and asked Nook to enlarge my final room. So, after 598,000 bells I’ll be out of debt. At least with Vella…
If this Ain’t Basic
- mint glasses
- vegetarian shirt
- chino pants
I couldn’t find any basic socks in my stores, so I just left socks off.
Whew, and that’s how my day went. Don’t look for another blog until Monday. Schedule change (again!) Class starts tomorrow. 頑張ろう！
News for Kasen
This Sunday is a holiday in Japan: Tanabata. Isabelle will be handing out a bamboo tree (not sure of English name) and there will be a cutout for picture taking. I will open Kasen’s gates for a little while for people to come get a bamboo tree. I don’t intend to add a lot of people, but you can sweeten the deal if you want to come by bringing something off my wish list. 😛 Item I want the most right now? Surfboard.
