Animal Crossing New Leaf: Day 88

Stalk Market

*Closed*

Joan sold turnips for 93 bells apiece. I scrounged enough money to buy 1,000. *crosses fingers*

お知らせ

I was due in Orentoiro at around 7am this morning. But the cat threw up around 6 and woke me up (fortunately she only rarely throws up) and I couldn’t go back to sleep after that so I got up and made myself some coffee. Sooooo this is just a heads up that I haven’t slept much and this may turn into incoherent mumbo jumbo as my caffeine buzz slips quietly away.

I was up early enough to catch the exercise show on tv

Shizue is handing out ogre masks in town square. I grabbed a red one and put my blue one in my pockets, grabbed my beans and headed for my friend Mikuro’s town. It was a little early in Kasen for bean throwing. All my townies were asleep…

オレントイロに行く- Going to Orentoiro

I arrived in Mikuro’s town not wearing my Oni mask. I was immediately accosted by—an ogre! I chucked beans at him.

Out with demons!  (鬼は外!)

But it wasn’t an ogre. It was just Mikuro in his mask. I put on my red one and asked him to take pics at the cutout in town square. That’s quickly turning into one of my favorite new additions to the game.

I didn’t see Mikuro’s house on my last visit, so I asked to go see it. He has a lot of townie pictures! I hope I get as many someday. I’ve started writing 4 letters a day to villagers in the hopes of becoming better friends. It’s a start.

I didn’t see all of Mikuro’s house because I asked to catalog a gold cat and then we got distracted with bean throwing and then Neko showed up. Yay! More photo ops. 🙂

We did a couple hide-and-seek tours on the island and then called it a night…or a day…depending on who you talk to.

Gulliver’s Present

For guiding him (not that he needed the help) back to Ireland, Gulliver sent me a shamrock clock.

Somebody Lost Something…

Everybody’s losing things these days. I was hoping returning it would net me another picture.

Isn’t that my diary?

Alas she didn’t give me her picture. I got a pine chair for bringing back her diary unread.

Terrorizing the townies

More people were awake so I put on my ogre mask and went around scaring whoever I found.

Depending on their personalities, the villagers behave a little differently when they encounter the ogre. Some of them get worried that they threw the beans too hard and hit you. Some of them are very sing song in their chant, and some of them give you the stink eye while they’re banishing you.

But if you show up wearing the demon mask and carrying the beans they get a little confused. A demon carrying beans? But… (I forgot to snap pics of that)

Kaizo’s Corner
