Stalk Market for Wednesday, October 23
AM: 148 Bells
PM: 136 Bells
Let me start by saying that I remembered to stop by the museum with the warm painting. I bit my fingernails a bit waiting for Blathers to declare it a ludicrous forgery, but he didn’t! It was real!
That means Hanabi only needs three more pieces of art to complete the art section!
- Quaint Painting
- Valiant Statue
- Motherly Statue
If I remember correctly I bought the valiant statue in Quantico last night…so I only need 2 pieces! Anyone have a motherly statue or quaint painting? I’ll trade bells or…something. I haven’t completed the art wing anywhere and I would love to have that done in one of my towns. Not least because I want the wallpaper in the gift shop. 😉
That’s about the most exciting thing that’s happened in the last few days. I did raid my husband’s town for perfect apples and made 432,000 Bells off of them. So now I can almost build a pyramid or sphinx or something equally bad that Hanabi doesn’t need.
And now because I have nothing to write about, I bombard you with weirdness from my wacky villagers. I now realize why I give everyone catchphrases involving food. It’s Barold’s fault! He’s always mentioning food, so it’s natural that I have him say “cheetos” and then “cheezwhiz” just sort of stuck for Shep. “Bacongravy” was a mistake. It’s been replaced by “Sarsparila” [sic] for Soleil, but I know that Tia has adopted it and who knows how many other townies picked it up.
And just to prove my point, here’s Barold giving me a nickname of “cookie” (I let him) that he thought up while eating polenta. Ha!
I let Tia visit again and this time I wasn’t cooking at the time, so I was able to give her the full tour.
Still no picture, but I’m trying!
I’m a Shark
Apparently at hide-and-seek anyway. I think my townies need to go take a class on hiding or camouflage. They’re not very good at it. But the townies on the island tour? I can never find them.
Shep was behind the police box, which one would think would conceal him. It didn’t.
Usually I suck at nursing, but I’m still trying to get O’Hare’s picture so when I didn’t see him walking around town I checked in on him—and found him plague-ridden. I gave him his first round of medicine. Remind me again tomorrow to bring some more because I need to score brownie points.
I’m crazy for their pics too. I guess you already know that, but maybe some of your readers don’t, so IMO the best strategy is to always “go that extra mile” – if they ask for some fruit, bring a perfect one, if they ask for a fish, bring the best, like a shark or araipama. If they ask for furniture, you bring something refurbished. It still takes lots of effort, but after a month or so I always get their pictures.
I had Redd today and I got my hands on the Quaint Painting. It will be yours on Saturday at 10 am! 🙂
@Astrid I try to go that extra mile for them most of the time. It seems like the villager whose picture I want the most—Julian—is either never around or never asks for anything, so getting his is a challenge! I still need Julian, Felicity, O’Hare, and Tia. I think I’m pretty close for Felicity and O’Hare since I gave Felicity a lovely home tour this afternoon and remembered to bring O’Hare his cold medicine. Then I’ll make more of an effort with my antisocial unicorn and teacup elephant.
@IcyLavender OMG Yay! Thank you!
