Despite my best intentions I did participate in Saturday’s fishing tourney. I may even have won with a whale shark. I wasn’t really interested in the trophy. I remembered that this was the first fishing tournament since I completed my fish encyclopedia so I hit Chip up for the gold fishing rod. Unfortunately just as I got it and was merrily snapping screenshots the game told me my SD card was fullâ€¦so I don’t have all of the commemorative pictures.
I cleaned out all of the fish I still had in my drawers (ew) from the harvest festival and turned them in to Chip as well as a few pikes, and assorted sharks I caught on the island the night before. I got a few pieces of the fish set. I have the whole set in Kasen, but Hanabi is lacking in its fishy furniture. I was hoping to get the jellyfish lamp. It’s my favorite. I got 2 football fish lamps, a squid chair, a sea anemone (or is that sea enemy?) bed, and a dab table.
Snow Family United
On Saturday I also completed my first perfect snow family. Snow Tyke sent me a matroyshka the next day.
Saturday Hanabi also saw its first aurora. We still haven’t had an igloo, but the aurora is one of my favorite weather events in Animal Crossing. I’ve never seen a real aurora. I wonder if I ever will?
Sunday in Hanabi
Finally the Christmas lights are appearing on the pines. I wish they were a little more uniform in their distribution, but I’ll take what I can get.
Joan was selling turnips for 100 bells apiece. I almost bought some, but I’m stingy. I’m not buying until you offer me some in the 90s Joan!
Today in Hanabi
There’s supposed to be a meteor shower tonight so I need to remember to log on and make a wish (and maybe update my dream address).
Yesterday I built a perfect snowman, today perfect snowboy, which means tomorrow I need to make a mangled snowmam. I’m not looking forward to that because I have 4 snowflakes in my pockets taking up all my space. I should have planned a little better…
Overheard: Tia and Sheldon Bonding over “Exercise”
I also wrote a few letters. I decided to work on a few badges to give me something to do, so I’m writing to Tia, Julian, and Octavian. Julian’s house has gone downhill, so I’m sending him regal furniture to spruce it up. So far he replaced his napoleon fish with the regal bed I sent him. That’s progress! I decided Tia would like the pink rococo furniture so I’ve been sending her that. Unfortunately she replaced the rococo couch I sent her with the rococo table I sent her. I’m hoping she’ll replace her spooky dresser with the rococo dresserâ€¦You never really know what they’ll keep and what they will get rid of.
I also went on a couple island tours. Not enough to get me many medals, but since I have no idea how many medals I need for the badge, there’s no sense rushing.
And finally I visited Kasen to pick up a bingo number and reciprocated for Yumi. Should anyone want to stop by today, Hanabi has lucky #13.
Dreaming of Dreams
I’m running out of people who commented on the dream world week thread in ACUKE’s forum, so either anyone is fair game or I’m going to look elsewhere for dream addresses. 😉
