Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Cool-Kid Party

I’m still in complaining mode which translates to: blog—plus Kokuto is at a Mötley Crüe concert and I’m bored, so here I go again!

I was at the dentist today getting fillings. It's like even the Nooklings want to fill me with fear.

If you don’t follow me on twitter or Miiverse you may not have seen that when I checked my mail yesterday I found a letter from Elvis announcing his birthday TODAY

This of course sent me into fits. He moved in, obliterated my path, revealed my secret hideaway,and then as icing on the cake demanded a birthday present. Who does that?? The king of course.

But after turning from purple back to my normal sickly pale, since I can’t seem to tan this year, I decided to rise above and get Elvis a birthday present. I thought about giving him one of the extra crowns I bought to get me the gold Famous Buyer badge, but decided I didn’t have to rise that high above, so after thinking for a while I decided to buy him a new royal shirt. A king in a polka dot shirt is just not a king.

Yesterday I stopped by Elvis’ house to see how he’d unpacked and I was shocked to find that we already have a traitor in our midst befriending him. It should surprise no one to find that it was Soleil hanging out with him. She’s probably trying to recruit Elvis to eat Flurry.

At least he does still have his thrones.

Only since I showed up buddy—a cool kid party of 1.

I told you the jury was still out on my path reimagining? Well, here’s what I’ve got with one minor change: Next to Elvis’ house two spaces left I planted a money tree. I don’t know if it will grow, but I thought it was fitting and the area needed something.

Happy Birthday Elvis!

Today I wrapped up Elvis’ present and took it over to his house. Grizzly was celebrating with him. I found that fitting. Hanabi’s two newest residents bonding over pissing the mayor off.

I see you manage to look surprised after practically demanding one in your letter.

You could at least put it on. That polka dot thing is so wrong.

Put. It. Onnnnnnn!!!!

Oh how can I be mad at a blushing lion.

It was what he said next that gave me pause.

Yeah, yeah, not that kindhearted stuff. I’m not buying it. He’s a Leo. I’m a Leo. We’re both bossy, overbearing and used to being in charge. It all makes sense now! My not liking him has nothing to do with his Wizard of Oz appearance.

I’ll tell you a secret. I’m pretty much over my three newest residents showing up out of the blue. It gives me something to do. I want all of their pictures, so it makes me want to play every day and bend over backwards for them and even though I really don’t like where his house is, part of the fun of a town is changing it up every now and then. His unfortunate landing presented an aesthetic challenge for me.

Of course I cringe now every time I see an orange tent pop up since I have no vacancies. Fortunately I didn’t need to worry today. I’m not interested in Big Top.

I could have had a vacancy though. Aurora asked to move. I’ll happily let her go after she gives me her picture, but I don’t have one yet, so she’s stuck in Hanabi until she coughs one up.

P.S. I received a US copy of Animal Crossing New Leaf from Nintendo. Thanks, Nintendo!
