Hornsby’s Return, Sale Day

Snow flurries were falling from the sky today. But I’m guessing Genji didn’t notice the snow, because he told me that it would start snowing soon.

Genji: I'm pretty sure it's gonna start snowing soon... The air's got that wintry feel to it, you know?
How soon is now?

Static and Snake were also nearby, and they apparently had an argument. They were both mad, but Snake took his anger out on me!

Snake: Go away! Just looking at you makes me want to scream!

I buried a pitfall in hopes that Snake would walk into it. Unfortunately, the wrong villager fell into the rabbit hole. Sorry, Genji.

Genji, in a pitfall: You're kidding me!

Since today is Sale Day, Crazy Redd was in town with his tent full of merchandise. But I didn’t want any of his items, so I just carried on with my day.

Another feature of Sale Day is that Tom Nook will have a bunch of grab bags for sale. Each one costs 2017 bells, and contains three items.

I bought two grab bags. My haul included a racer shirt, a Maki figurine, a red pinwheel, an old brick wall, a fancy pinwheel, and a blue golf bag. I put on the racer shirt and sold everything else back to Nook.

I found a new house in town, and Hornsby was inside! Hornsby was one of my earliest villagers in Forest, and I liked him a lot…particularly his catchphrase, “schnozzle.” In fact, I recently used an Amiibo card to add him to my New Leaf town as well!

But after greeting him, the very next thing he said to me was that he wanted a new catchphrase! Nooo!

Hornsby: You know, I'm really sick of saying "schnozzle" all the time, schnozzle. Oh, darn it! Did it again!

I couldn’t decline his request, and the game didn’t let me re-enter the same one. So I just added a third “Z” to the word; he now says schnozzzle.

I visited Sydney in her house, and she told me she was getting really tired. I told her to go to sleep, and she got mad…for a reason that didn’t even make sense. She was furious that I told her to sleep right here in the snow? But we were indoors!

Sydney: Jeff! What do you mean, "Go to sleep!"?! Right here? In the snow!?

She said she’s never going to forget this, and that it’s going to come back to haunt me someday.  I never cared for Sydney much, and now I know why. What a nut.

Over by the wishing well, Baabara told me I’ve put on weight. After I told her I haven’t, she told me not to lie. She said I put on 1.2 pounds since we last spoke.

Baabara: You've definitely gained 1.2 pounds since the last time I laid eyes on you, daahling. I see it.

After selling some fruit and other items, I was able to get my bank account balance up to 18 million bells for the first time!

Phyllis: Your balance is 18,000,000 bells.I then returned home and ended my game for the night. I did not do the Sale Day glitch today, but if you’re interested, here is a video of the glitch I recorded back in 2009.
