I didn’t get it in Hanabi. Vella just got silver the other day.
A look at Yumi’s badge collection:
The gold crown in the bottom right is for playing for 500 hours. Eep! Yumi’s missing the weeding badge and the dream suite badge. The dream suite badge just cause I’m lazy. The weeding badge, just cause 500 weeds is a lot and I can’t decide if I want to work on it with her or Vella.
I admit, I cheated for the gold fishing badge and the gold bug badge—don’t worry, I got my comeuppance for cheating. Last night I was feeling plucky and a little bored, so I decided to set Quantico to September 2nd (Labor Day) so Yumi could go get the last 4 creatures she needed and get a picnic basket to boot.
No sooner did Hotch step out of his house than I heard the blinking mailbox of doom and as I read realized with horror that Static had moved away. That’ll teach me.
So, these four are for you Static! (OK, three. I forgot to get a picture of the regular salmon cause I suck like that.)
Upon arriving back in Kasen and donating the beasties to the museum I ran into パロンチーノ aka the badge man—twice. Once for bugs and once for fish. I kept looking for him hoping for that gold catalog badge because I’ve been working hard towards it.
Alas it wasn’t meant to be.
This morning I walked into the police box to ask what was going on in town. It’s my favorite lazy way of seeing who I need to look for. I was alerted to the presence of パロンチーノ. It took me a minute to figure out who he was. I’m not good with the characters’ Japanese names. But once I realized who it was I pulled out my megaphone and started hollering for the badge man.
I tracked him down at the campsite and hesitantly asked for a badge. He gave me the catalog maniac gold badge. That means I’ve completed 80% of Yumi’s catalog. Not 100%. There’s still a lot of nitpicky stuff I’m missing. And all those bedamned shirts!
Thank you to everyone who brought a piece off of my wish list. I couldn’t have done it without help!
