Stalk Market for Tuesday, June 18

AM: 78 Bells
PM: 74 Bells

Ugh

My Tuesday, Thursday writing schedule is quickly being challenged. Today I went to the dentist and Thursday I have to go back for a root canal. Joy! Depending on how I feel after that ordeal (I’ve never had a root canal before) I may not feel up to posting. If that’s the case I will post Friday.

Party?

Good idea Soleil!

Speaking of Friday, I’m thinking of hosting an open Hanabi. I’d like to make this a weekly village opening perhaps alternating Hanabi village and Kasen village. So for those who’ve posted their friend codes that I haven’t added, I’ll get around to it. I usually add in spurts and I am slightly worried about filling up my FC list. So, Friday. I’ll open my gates tentatively from 10am-noon and again from 3pm-5pm with maybe one more go in the evening. Please be aware that I live in GMT -8. If you want to come visit but are busy Friday I can try a different day. It’s not set in stone, I just figure that after root canal day I’ll need some fun. I’ll try to have some DLC for people to catalog. If there are specific requests that I can accommodate I’ll try, but I’m not ordering an entire set.

Hanabi Recap

When last I wrote, I had just taken second in the fishing tourney and I was expecting Super T&T to remodel.
Later Saturday night I walked in on a creepy (filthy) dancing mole. I need therapy now.

If only I could capture video so you too could be scarred by his dance.

I completed the dinosaur wing of the museum. With just as little fanfare as in the Japanese game.

I met Carmen. She is my BFF from City Folk. I love her. We're talking Lillian scale love.

Open! Open! Open!

The gardening shop is attached to T.I.Y. Leif now carries two flowers, two shrubs, 1 tree, 1 tool, and 1 garden furniture. I think I’m mostly over my manic shrub planting, but you never know…

Evidence of my shrub hoarding problem.

Where’s My Ark?

Today it is stormy in Hanabi. It’s thundering and lightning and coming down in buckets.

No, that's not my house.

The remodel of town hall finished today as well. I made townies trudge out in the rain to celebrate it sans umbrellas cause I’m a mean mayor. You’ll party when I say you’ll party, townies!

Whew. That was long. I got Gulliver (ジョニー!) sent on his merry way. Souvenir to follow.

Royal Treasury Needed

I do not have the 800,000 bells to buy the throne. I do, however, have access to someone who does. I’m trying to save up money with Yumi to get some of the savings rewards (I want 10,000,000 bells by summer’s end) in Kasen. So far Yumi’s only amassed about 3.2 million and 800,000 seems like a big chunk to steal. I’m torn about whether I should get the throne (I don’t have it on either game) or just wait until I see it again. Ugh! Monetary decisions! I only bought 500 turnips this week, so that’s not going to save me…

Imminent Hot Springs

Someone finally suggested a public work that I think would work great in Hanabi! Soleil wants a hot spring. I even attempted to put it in, but being very nit-picky placed it just a little forward of where I wanted it and went back and cancelled it (much to Isabelle’s chagrin).

Hot Spring!

Hot Spring!

I thought it was where I wanted it, but it's one square forward of ideal.

The look on my face says: I'm keeping those donations, shih tzu!

Unfortunately I can’t re-build it until tomorrow. No hot springs for Hanabi just yet. Soon!

Conclusion

Wish me luck at the dentist! And hope to see you Friday. Post friend codes. If I haven’t added you by Thursday, bug me by commenting.

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

P.P.S. Send more fruit.
