Stalk Market for Wednesday, August 7
AM: 134 Bells
PM: 159 Bells
I am no longer frantically wondering if my prices will rise. Astrid from Lagoona let me come over and sell yesterday when her prices were 611. *swoon* Thanks Astrid! Yumi’s bank account is now sitting pretty at 18.3 million. Just a little ways to go for 20. I don’t know if I’ll play the market next week as there’s a good chance I may be going out of town for my birthday and I don’t like to have to check all the time when I’m on vacation.
Did you watch this morning’s Nintendo Direct? I did at the ungodly hour of seven. I hate watching those because they just make me want all the games and I don’t have time to play the ones I have. I did take the time to download Animal Crossing Mii Plaza and I sat mesmerized watching villagers mill about and got excited when I saw one I liked. I didn’t spot Julian, so I had to make Soleil my favorite in interim. I don’t know if I’ll use it to its full capacity. I doubt I’ll upload pics there or anything, but it seems like a fun place to look around.
Yesterday in Hanabi
We had an adorable camper. Unfortunately Hanabi’s still full up so I didn’t get to invite Rosie to move in.
Yesterday I consulted the lovely phone regarding my fortune. Then I proceeded to ignore it—mostly because I don’t have an animal print dress on hand. Today I didn’t even look at the phone. I’m so inconsistent.
I’m wondering if luck affects whether you see rare bugs/fish or not (and if so how much). I have a pretty solid feng shui room (see above), but after wandering around for an hour yesterday I didn’t encounter a single giant petaltail. I’d like to think I was having a “bad luck” day regarding critters. Nevertheless I took my frustration out on my trees.
I did the unthinkable and chopped down almost all of them. I kept all my perfect cherry trees (probably should chop those down too, but I’m greedy), my money trees, and a few pine trees (I only chopped down as many as I could immediately replace). I forgot to chop down the trees on the beach, but I think I only have 5 total.
I then wandered around for a bit after 7pm and still never ran across a scorpion or a tarantula.
Insert gratuitous Julian pics to take mind off of frustrating bugs
All better. Moving right along.
Present from Gulliver
Gulliver sent me a present while he was visiting with Nessie. He gave me bagpipes. I really need a proper music room to put them in.
Soleil suggested a new public work yesterday. Unfortunately she’s not on the same page as me in terms of decorating themes. Sorry burrito-chan, no modern clock for Hanabi. I really want Rooney to suggest more things but he’s been stubbornly quiet since he got over his cold.
I found a lost bag over by Re-Tail this morning. Usually I have to ask everyone to find its owner, but Sheldon was the first person I showed it to and he gushed over its return.
Redd showed up. I am not 100% positive, but it seemed to me he had two legitimate paintings today. When I had my feng shui room in the basement I never got two real paintings, so maybe the luck didn’t count down there?
I also picked up a gallant statue from Yumi and donated it. I feel like the art wing is going to take forever to complete. I really need to make a list of the art I’m looking for and the duplicates I have to trade…
Tonight I intend to hunt for the
white whale giant petaltail and scorpion. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Also, Hanabi is closed while I look for it and until I replant the trees. But I think I may put in a playground after I do catch those pesky bugs.
