I found Poncho’s goodbye letter in the mail today. He sure didn’t stick around very long. I wouldn’t think someone named Poncho would be such a fair-weather friend. 😛
At the top of my central ramp, I spotted an igloo. This is the first igloo I’ve seen this winter, and it’ll also be the last. The snow will be gone by Saturday morning.
I found Baabara inside. She liked the violin I had in my pockets, and she offered to play a game for it. Depending on how I guessed the symbol on her cards, I could earn over 3,000 bells for the violin. I guessed that she had a triangle on her first card…and I was wrong. So she only gave me 470 bells for the violin.
Back outside, I found a new villager in acre B-5: Ribbot the frog. I’ve always liked him, mainly because he’s a robot. Is it just me, or does he look even more robotic on GameCube? Maybe it’s the way he blinks? Or maybe my brain is just short-circuiting.
In Nookington’s, I decided to buy and wear the No. 1 shirt. (Update: I just discovered that you can actually buy this shirt at Amazon!)
After coming down my eastern ramp, I saw Static staring at the ground. When villagers stare at something, it’s because they’re looking at a bug or fish. Since I didn’t see anything, I figured there must be a mole cricket underground. So I got my shovel out and dug a hole (or three). And sure enough, the little bugger crawled out and tried to scamper away. But I didn’t have any trouble catching it.
A couple minutes later, I bumped into Ursala. She noticed my mole cricket and said that she wanted it.
Ursala asked if I wanted clothes, paper, or money for it. Of course, I chose money, and she gave me a whopping 2,920 bells for it! I should probably share this money with Static, since he made this all possible. But I won’t. 😛
I pulled lots of weeds, I mailed a fossil away, and I checked the dump for items; I took a wobbelina that I’ll sell next time. Then I also made sure my town was back to perfect town status before wrapping up my game for the day.
Last night, Bill Trinen (from Nintendo) tweeted about the goodbye letters in Animal Crossing:
Am I the only one who feels like letters in Animal Crossing were the original Twitter? pic.twitter.com/CMUGVZ1Zvb

Recognize that picture? It’s Boots’ goodbye letter I received in my previous blog entry from January 30th. 😛 I haven’t posted that particular screenshot to social media, so Bill must have visited this blog last night. 😛
Thank you to all who read this blog, including you. Long live Animal Crossing on GameCube. 🙂
