Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Bear Callin’ the Moose Hairy

Stalk Market for Monday, October 28

AM: 92 Bells
PM: 87 Bells

Despite not being home much this weekend, I still had some pretty full days. Saturday morning I hosted two adorable ladies:

Shrunk funk shuffle!

Thanks for coming over! I had a blast. And thank you both for the gifts! 😉

Artsy Museum

Euphy brought me a quaint painting, ♥ And I was able to donate the valiant statue I got from Redd. The only piece of art that Hanabi is missing now is the motherly statue. So close!

Our new Quaint Painting.  :)

Concrete Room

After my guests left I noticed that I had Saharah roaming Hanabi. For the heck of it I had her redo my room. She actually gave me matching wallpaper and carpet, but I don’t think my house needs concrete walls and floor…

Not very inviting. I don't think I can sleep with my head next to a concrete wall.

Nurse Vella Scores!

I checked in on O’Hare while my guests were over Saturday morning. He was indeed all better. And very thankful for the aid I gave him. He gave me his picture!

Gold Strike-Out

I got another gold wallpaper. I think (when I get a spare moment) I’m going to redo Locke’s house and have a pirate room and a gold room full of pirate booty. I still want to make a fall room to replace Vella’s beach room, but I doubt I’ll end up making it.

Hi Dreamers!

I checked in on Felicity in her house and she started talking about someone she met in a dream.

Then I talked to her again and she told me she kept the fossil in her house because it makes her look better. Um ok.

And the Nobel Prize for Shipwrecks…

If it weren’t for Booker I would never know when Gulliver was around. He told me there were rumors of someone washed ashore. Sure enough there was Gulliver. On his way to Sweden when he washed up.

Quick Note from Kasen

Because I am enjoying fixing up Kasen little by little I thought I’d talk about it. I decided to ask Whitney from my husband’s town to move to Kasen. I’ve never asked a packed-up villager to move, so I figured I may as well do it. And I don’t have any wolves in any of my towns. Plus my husband really likes Whitney. I don’t know why he let her go (to get in a fresh faces I assume. Since he got her picture). I can keep her for when he has letting-villager-go remorse.

If I were Whitney I wouldn't move in to a village when someone wearing demon horns is the one asking...

Yesterday she plopped her house down just west of Nelson/Zell. I see a tryst coming.

I was right about the fairytale bridge being a pain in the butt. I had to remove the round topiary on the other side of the river in order to put it in. That’s an extra 100,000 bells to put the bridge in. It’s ok though. I really like it. I’d replace our other bridge (we only have 2) but I think Kitt’s house is in the way, so I’m trying to be nice to her so she’ll want to move.

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Is this the Spot?

Stalk Market for Friday, October 18

AM: 170 Bells
PM: 235 Bells!!

Too bad I don’t have any turnips to sell. BTW if anyone is desperate to sell my store will be open for a few hours, so message me on twitter. @sosostris.

Despite the fact that I swear nothing is going on in Hanabi I still have 68 pictures to sift through.

Saharah’s Redesign

Yesterday we did have Saharah. Satoshi-kun was kind enough to give me the last wallpaper I needed, so I really don’t need anything from Saharah anymore. I still let her redo Vella’s front room. I don’t know why as she’s never impressed me, but…

I guess at least it has a game-ish theme. hopscotch floor...backgammon wall...

Nintendo Zone

I finally managed to pick up the latest Nintendo Zone DLC, the sushi platter. I’m a bit confused about whether it’s a regular item, or if it only shows up in Japanese copies of Animal Crossing. I swear I had it in Kasen village’s Nook’s before, but I don’t think I had it in Hanabi. Unfortunately I didn’t check my catalog before I picked it up, so who knows. It is orderable. If anyone needs one (in case they are JP only and any EU friends might need them?) just let me know.

HNI_0091

Makes me hungry! I haven’t had dinner yet. 🙁

More Gold Nuggets

In my latest gold furniture crafting session with Cyrus I got something that I sort of needed. He made a gold table. I had one in Kasen, but not in Hanabi. Yumi has it on display in a museum exhibit, so Vella had never cataloged it. I call that a win. Still need that closet though.

HNI_0093

Today in Hanabi

Today was all about doing requests for townies again. I didn’t have any visitors, not even a camper. So I ran around getting fruit for Tia, buying unwanted items off of Julian and getting signatures for Rooney’s “Against Judging Faces” petition.

He asked to move from Kasen today and I *almost* told him to go just so Vella could steal him. So cute!

Yup. I came just for you, Lillian! This petition is purely secondary (She could never move to Hanabi because I couldn't call her Bunnie)

Rooney rewarded me with his picture. Which would be great if I didn’t already have it. I wish he would have rewarded me with one of the Zen PWPs I still need.

PWPs

Speaking of which, I should never be left to my own devices without visitors or anything going on because I tend to think things like “sure, we can put in that quarter of a million bell Moai statue. It’ll look great behind the cherry orchard by my house.” And that’s exactly what I did. I may also have sold all my cherries and stolen all of Kasen’s perfect peaches to pay for it. But that could just be a vicious rumor spread by Soleil.

It shouldn't be, but sadly it is.

Hooray for pillaging!

Tia wanted to visit today as well and I set an alarm for an hour after she asked, intending to make pumpkin pie pudding in the meantime. I thought an hour would be plenty of time, but the sugar for the candied walnuts refused to melt, and my alarm went off as I was making them. I still turned on the 3DS and waited in my house for her (stirring all the while) but once she arrived I didn’t have a chance to take her from room to room or talk to her and she just left. I think she’ll probably send me a crappy gift in the mail, but at least I showed up!

What? Yeah. Um. Bye. Sorry, distracted. Don't want to burn walnuts and sugar!

Animal Crossing New Leaf US: Even More Amazing

Stalk Market for Friday, October 11

AM: 69 Bells
PM: 65 Bells

This will likely be one of my shorter posts. The reason being, I just downloaded Pokémon X from the Japanese e-shop (it’s Saturday there already) but I haven’t let myself play it yet because I wanted to make sure to play a tiny bit of Animal Crossing and blog before I ride the Pokémon hype train.

Soooo, Wednesday I did remember to turn on my game and update the dream suite at 7pm. So if you stop by in a dream you should get a meteor shower. So cliché. 😉

Rooney and I hung out on stumps by the warm fire and watched shooting stars. So pretty!
HNI_0015

I got a lovely present in the mail yesterday from wishy the star, a vintage radio. Of course I gave it to Julian the second he asked for something to replace his emperor butterfly. Still no picture. He gave me a polka dot TV in return.

HNI_0025

Stump Maker

I may be a stump maker, but I am not a good stump positioner. I uprooted my last stump and planted another one hoping that you could sit on it behind the illuminated heart and look cute. Well, I think it needs to be farther back (which I can’t do because of the plaza) because it doesn’t quite work out. Oh well. Maybe I’ll just plant a few more and chop them down to complete my pine tree tree ring set.

HNI_0027

Not quite what I had in mind. Oh well.

Interior Nightmare

We also had Saharah yesterday. I’ve been very lazy, so I only got my room done with Vella and not Locke. I think I’m lazy because I only need 1 more Saharah wallpaper (lunar horizon) and the chances of getting it are slim to none. I got a dash of ugly with my redesign and now I have an extra garden wall.

HNI_0018

Today in Hanabi

Ahhhh beautiful town ordinance. Very little watering for me! All I watered were my pink lilies that I’m trying to get more of. They seem to throw a lot of red and white ones even with fertilizer and the golden shovel.

I had no visitors in town today. And only had to get Tia an ocean fish. I gave her a dab. She gave me a cement mixer. No one else requested anything.
HNI_0041

I did manage to find a third gold nugget, so I gave that to Cyrus. I’m crossing my fingers for that golden closet.

I'll try, but as you know Pokémon is coming out...

I’m still trying to go easy on the Animal Crossing. I haven’t turned on Kasen today. Yumi was seething as she introduced herself to Kitt yesterday…

Still no Golden Closet

Quantico had a windfall from an ore rock, plus Vella had saved up a few gold nuggets I had forgotten about, so I was able to make 3 pieces of golden furniture. Unfortunately none of them were what I was looking for. I got:

HNI_0089
Golden Dresser. I always think I need this one. Then I realize I don’t…
HNI_0001

Don’t need this either.

HNI_0026

Didn’t I just get you? I wish you could remake the golden furniture into some other piece of golden furniture. Can’t Cyrus just melt it down? Alpaca, please!

Phineas Sighting

I never know what Phineas is going to bring me when he shows up, but I’m always happy to see him. This time he brought me the silver “Seafood Encyclopedia” badge for completing 80% of my sea creature encyclopedia. I’m getting closer to diving completion.

For the first time, I caught a villager using the marshmallow roasting stumps for something other than their intended purpose. Rooney was napping on one. He looked adorable. Naturally I woke him up.

Saharah’s Redecorating Nightmare

We hosted Saharah in town. I think her 3,000 bells are a ripoff. She didn’t do either Vella or Locke any favors in remaking their rooms.

Happy Home VIP

Locke got a letter in the mail from the HHA stating she’d scored 300,000 points in her evaluation and to come pick up her prize. Turns out she unlocked the golden roof. I’m contemplating whether I want to try and raise Locke’s VIP score and turn her hut/mansion into a golden zen house, but I think with all the landscaping that may look funny. My original plan was to turn her house gold and then make a third character (finally) and do his/her house as the resort style. I’m still toying with that idea.

I’d like to get a camper that I want to move in (or maybe steal one of Quantico’s cuties—Carmen, Flurry, or Ankha) and then use the create new character cheat to get a good house placement and then just keep the character around instead of deleting them. I digressed a bit there…

And that’s the news from Hanabi. Aside from Barold trying to move (NO!) and Julian trying to steal my gold nugget for a pittance (again NO!). Oh! I updated the dream suite. There’s not too much new in town, but I’ve been trying to add a few more pieces of bamboo to town for a more, um zen, feel. I think I may regret it as they take over everything, but it’s rather pretty while I keep it in check. And the bamboo shoots sell for quite a bit to boot.

Why can't the badge be based off of people who have visited my town instead of the other way around?

Hanabi isn’t hugely popular. But we’ve had a few dreamers. 🙂

Oh and I posted another pikopuri Halloween QR Code on Tumblr. I made a pineapple dress from their October design book as well. Maybe I’ll post that tomorrow.

Saturday in Hanabi

It was pouring rain. Naturally that was a great time for Gulliver to wash ashore. He was trying to get to a new (for me) place. I hope he gets his princess someday.

All this sand reminds me of a dream town I visited recently. The folks over at animalcrossingus are visiting a scary dream town every Friday night for the next few weeks (for Halloween). I missed the time to join in the chat room with everyone, but I visited the town they visited called Covah 6700-2770-9418 and it’s got a very Egyptian mummy curse vibe.

I like theme towns. Can anyone suggest good ones to visit? Besides Aika and the Alice in Wonderland one. Been there. Done that.

I didn’t do much else on Saturday except for my weekly K.K. listen. I haven’t started trying to get Yumi her silver and gold badges yet (Vella has them), but I was ecstatic Sunday morning when Yumi got K.K.’s picture in the mail. Naughty Yumi also run into Phineas further compounding her shame for the turnip scandal since he gave her the gold saving badge.

K.K.'s Picture finally!

Sunday in Hanabi

I was accosted by Pete with another letter from Nintendo. It was just a plug for the current DLC available at Nintendo Zones—the slushie machine. It’s orderable and I got it back when Europe got it, so I’m not running over to Starbucks (or Fedex, who knew?) to grab it this time.

Thanks to MerryNoel I was able to try for a couple different patterned stumps. As luck would have it I got another triforce, but this one is on the other stump. I got a citrus circle as well. I’ll leave them be for the moment, but may try again when I feel like changing things up. Maybe I should just replace the other triforce stump. Is there room in one town for more than one triforce? Seems too powerful. It’ll call Ganon down on our peaceful hamlet.

HNI_0044

Public Works

Rooney finally suggested something else I’ve been wanting to put in, the zen bench. I’m unfamiliar with eastern style benches. Do they really look like they’ve got a tablecloth on? I demolished the current yellow bench in preparation for the new one. Today I got Isabelle to place it where I wanted it on the first try.

I think the new fish and diving creatures came out yesterday. I haven’t had much luck finding a mitten crab, sweet shrimp, or a spiny lobster yet, but I did get a clam. And I am so down for chowder.

Today in Hanabi

The message board reminded me that the Bug-Off is this Saturday. I’m torn about whether to compete or not. On the one hand I’d like a few duplicates of items and I don’t have class this weekend (which usually cuts into my tournament time a lot) but on the other hand, I’m lazy…

Kitt is MOVING!

I’m hoping nothing happens to dissuade her from her new adventure. She ran up and told me she was leaving on the 21st of this month and I wished her well. She didn’t try and back out of it, so I think that she’s really going. If anyone wants her (why would you???) let me know.

HNI_0004

HNI_0006

That was the best news I’ve gotten in a long time. And just afterward Felicity ran up to me to tell me that she heard Kitt was thinking of moving. I couldn’t bring myself to feign concern.

The only other new thing going on today was a visit from Saharah. I didn’t get anything noteworthy for Vella (anyone need an Office Wall?) and haven’t gotten Locke’s interior redesigned yet.

The sweet olives have finally bloomed!
