On New Years’ day there was a signboard, a few cards in my mailbox (including a 10,000 bell bag from “Mom”), and Isabelle gave a cool zodiac horse for the occasion. 🙂 The new year has been here for months in real life, but this is the first new year in Citàlune — I hope 2014’s good to it!
Just thought this was a nice shot, showing the flowers I have lining the riverbank. And it was a koi!
I completed the fossil exhibit in the museum, but Blathers didn’t have a whole lot to say about it. 😦 I miss blathering Blathers.
Checking out the last addition to the exhibit! It’s probably my favorite fossil item in the game; amber has some special significance in one of my favorite books. 🙂
A relationship brewing? 😮 After this he said he was going to ask Gloria out on a sporty date, I forgot what exactly and didn’t take a screenshot. 😛
Yay, a flower fan! Finally a rumor that I really like and think fits me well, but I went back to being a pro-listener as usual a few days later. 😛 I think the flower fan rumor started after I updated my dream address early in January, because before I updated I went around and watered all the flowers in town so that they would sparkle in the night (and I have a lot of flowers!).
Pondering the dimensions before building my first snowman in Citàlune. It took me a while to build one because of general laziness, I guess, and because it’s hard to push a snowball around my town without breaking it, and because I didn’t even know where I’d put a snowman! But then I remembered this empty spot below Estel’s castle gardens, where I plan to put two benches eventually, but for now it’s perfect for having some snowmen/snowpeople!
He was pleased with how I made him, and started a game of Bingo. But the number was 13, and was perhaps an unlucky omen, because I’m in late January now and still haven’t won a game yet. 😛
Mitzi letting me know her plans to move. I’ve enjoyed having a cute kitty in town, but she’s not a dream neighbor, so I decided to wish her well in her plans.
Haha, this made me laugh since I have long hair in real life. xD None of the haircuts in AC are that long, but Gloria still seemed quite concerned!
Paula’s cute theory about auroras. ^^ But the real-life reason behind them, at least, is when charged particles from the sun collide with particles in the Earth’s atmosphere, in the north and south poles. The different colors in the aurora are the result of the charged particles colliding with different gas particles (oxygen, nitrogen, etc.)
Those statues were built way before you moved in, Bunnie! xP
Paula asked for a river fish, so I went out of my way to catch something that might look cute in her house (a goldfish), but she didn’t even end up displaying it! >_<
Redd’s genuine artwork for sale was immediately apparent as soon as I walked in the tent! The valiant statue looks soo lovely with its regular feathery wings instead of the batlike ones! Ahh, I haven’t donated it yet…
Mitzi packed up to leave, and a visitor came to invite her to move to their town 🙂
When Mitzi left, I was excited about the prospect of moving in a new dream neighbor, so I asked Erik to move in right away! Back in this post I asked for feedback on who I should have as my permanent lazy resident, Erik or Doc, and in the end decided to go with the poll’s majority opinion on Erik. (But some of my own thoughts/decisions factored in as well; for instance, I went to a dream town with Erik and decided that I thought Erik’s house would look especially lovely surrounded by colorful tulips, which is what I had planned for the garden of whichever lazy resident I chose!)
I messed up majorly when plot resetting for his house. 😦 It was pretty late at night and I was tired, hoping that it wouldn’t be too much longer before his house landed where I wanted it to, and I was reading some stuff online while resetting to make it a bit less boring. Before I knew it, instead of the sound of the train and talking to Rover, I heard the sound of Isabelle starting up the game for me. I wanted to stop it so bad, but realized that a corrupted game file would be a lot worse than a house plot in a bad location, so I had to let it finish. T_T I’ll let this be a warning to myself (and others, if other plot-resetters are reading this) to not get too comfortable and confident when resetting, always be careful and alert and patient, and try not to do it when you’re too tired.
I even had a PWP set up two spaces away, to guide the house to go in the exact space I wanted it to, but the plot didn’t go anywhere near here after two hours.
One of the first things I did after this happened was request to pay someone in exchange for Doc on ACC, and I’m really glad to have him waiting on my other copy of the game now. 🙂 It made me feel better knowing that I have a great replacement for Erik as soon as he moves out. I’ll be able to have all fairytale door houses in my town after all. Also wooo, a special sunset (a good omen for better luck with Doc? xP)
Now for a more happy occasion! ^_^
It was Colton who hosted my surprise party, and Rod and Melba were there as well! 😀 These three are some of the residents who have been in my town the longest, so I guess maybe that’s why?
In past games the present was always a birthday cake, but in AC:NL there are several additional options (I’ve heard it depends on your friendship level?), and I ended up getting the birthday hat. I might prefer the birthday cake item still, but the hat is cute too! ^^
They were all just singing away, hehe, Melba looked so adorable!
I hung around the party for a while, but eventually thought I’d better get going. Aw thanks for throwing it, you guys! ❤
Erik officially moved in on my birthday, what a great birthday present ._. His cabin could’ve looked so lovely in the right part of town, but it looks awfully out of place here right next to Estel’s castle gardens, and it’s inconveniently in the middle of a path.
But oh well, let’s cheer up with other happy birthday things, like this cute bulletin board message. 🙂
And look, there’s even a special sale for my birthday 😛
And I caught a stringfish! The pun was something I didn’t expect, a reference to string theory? xP
All my neighbors had birthday greetings for me, even the ones who didn’t get to go to the party, and I got several birthday cards too. (Maybe not as many as I would’ve, had I cleaned out my mailbox the day before. I’m so lazy about clearing my mailbox!)
Lastly, I’m not sure if it was a coincidence, but K.K. Slider happened to be playing K.K. Birthday when I walked into Club lol!
Haha, it’s always so embarrassing when your face pops up on the screen xD
