You know, with all the running around I did today I completely forgot to check.
Octavian made me do it.
Animal Crossing is full of bug puns and fish puns. When Octavian opens his mouth and talks about gardening I can’t help but start singing the Beatles. And then walk off laughing like Snoopy.
Turnabout is Fair Play
The other day I logged in and checked my site stats (something I haven’t done in eons) and noticed I had several referrals from Bidoof Crossing. I stopped by and saw that he had posted about visiting Hanabi in a dream. And said some nice things about my towns and blog. Thanks Jake! I hadn’t ever visited his town (because I am a lazy lazy dream visitor and hardly ever visit anyone. Something I hope to rectify in the near future). So I decided I’d go check out skyfall. But when I got there things looked strangeâ€¦and vacantâ€¦and summer-like.
I knew that there was an issue with his dream codes and that he somehow ended up getting another one. I had stumbled into the old version of his town. I didn’t stick around, but found the correct address: 6700-2379-4935 and tried again.
Jen from Pink Sea I’m going to visit and post about your village after vacation!
Back in Hanabi
The dreaming was probably the highlight of the past few days. I haven’t been studying as much as I should and have spent way too much time trying to organize my stash of Gracie clothes over in Kasen. I now have a museum room devoted to Gracie dresses, shoes, and parasols. And another full of all the animal print clothing and my illicit zodiac figurines. I still haven’t figured out what to do with all of the pants and shirts. They’ll probably end up in someone’s drawers. If I’m really diligent they’ll be organized by season. I may be slightly OCD.
Yesterday I really can’t remember if we had a visitor. Since I have no pictures attesting that we did I’m going to say that it was a visitor-less day and I just doled out perfect apples to Felicity (with her tree-shaking phobia) and set an alarm to visit Octavian.
Today wasn’t much better. I had a lot of running around to do before leaving tomorrow and so I haven’t gotten to play much. I even thought about not posting today, but after I finished packing and there was nothing else to worry about I decided posting sounded good. Nevertheless I had to wait until after 5pm because I had ordered a piece of furniture for Octavian.
We did have a visitor today. I saw Saharah wandering about, but I didn’t get any rooms redone. I suppose now that the evening is winding down I have time to get her to stop by and destroy one of my carefully decorated roomsâ€¦
Ok, so there was one really exciting thing that happened. Pete stopped by with a letter from Nintendo. I hadn’t heard about any DLC, so I had no idea what it was. Inside was a pile of leaves. This will go great in my mishmash Autumn room. It sits on the floor and you can run through it. It shakes. ♥
I hear EU players got the (orderable) Flamenco hat as well today. I would love it if someone could order me one for around um December 3rd or 4th. If said player could wait until then I would happily trade a pile of leaves. (That sounds really weird to me.)
What do you get for an octopus who has every space thing? I couldn’t remember which item he had ditched in favor of the white katana he snagged off of me, so I could have ordered him a replacement space shuttle butâ€¦instead I decided the full moon vanity went with his theme so I ordered that for him. I usually give random or remade items to villagers but I really like his spacey house and would like it to stay as alien as possible for as long as possible.
OK, the whole gold furniture thing is finally starting to get to me. I got another three nuggets, gave them to Cyrus, waited, came back: bam! Golden clock. ANOTHER. GOLDEN. CLOCK. This is the third one in my Re-Tail. I have one in Locke’s house. And one in my house. I think I have at least one or two more in storage.
After deciding that I’m going to try to fill up the entire store with golden clocks I tried to start a conga line. Reese was down with it, but O’Hare refused to participate.
Birthday on the Way
And lastly, I remembered that Tia had sent me a letter telling me her birthday was the 18th (in the middle of my vacation) so rather than wait until the last minute or worse yet—forget, I did a bit of research. Thonky has a list of recommended birthday presents for villagers. I figured it’s getting colder and Tia could use a new coat. Don’t tell her, but she’s getting this:
And with that, I’m out of here! I’ll post when I can. 🙂
