Tank Fight

As I started up the game tonight, I spotted the northern lights up in the sky (along with a new moon). So I stopped to enjoy the sights and take a picture.

The northern lights and a new moon in Animal Crossing: City Folk.I began my usual walk around town, and Coco was also talking about the aurora up above.

Coco: You can see the aurora! Isn't it lovely?!
But how do YOU see it without eyes?

There was a new house in town, but I was not happy to see who was inside: It was Kitty. I’ve had her in my GameCube town before, and I was not a fan.

Kitty: Well, the rumors are true! I am the newly arrived Kitty that the whole town is talking about!
Are you the mayor’s new secretary?

I hope she doesn’t stick around long. I’m taking a good look and hoping it’s the last time I see her. Someone should put her on a yacht and send her seaward (if any Arrested Development fans catch my drift).

Tank asked me for some beige furniture, and I wasn’t sure what to give him. I checked the furniture on sale at the shop, but the only thing close was the computer (since the wooden desk it was on was beige-ish). I bought it and took it to Tank, but it wasn’t beige enough for him.

Tank: Dude, old dog, it's obvious computer furniture is what ignites your fired-upness.Tank: I want a beige! So, try flexing your head muscle real hard and remember that!That was pretty rude of him, especially when I just bought him a computer! Who turns down a free computer?! But if I can’t give him “a beige,” then I’m going to give him some black and blue.

Tank: The weight of my muscles crushed the planet! AWESOME!
Get rekt.

But despite that ordeal with Tank, I had a good night overall. I recorded two more clips for my upcoming video, and I should now have everything I need. All I have to do is put it all together and wrap it up. Look for it next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Big Snowballs

As expected, I received Twiggy’s goodbye letter in the mail today. She said that we were BFFs, and that’s a Big Fat Fabrication. But I won’t hold it against her. She was a tweet sweet villager to have around, even if she was a bit of a birdbrain.

Broccolo, surrounded by gold roses: I hope a kajillion different flowers pop up!A few minutes later, Broccolo had a fight with Static. Broccolo was still mad about it, and he warned me to watch out when a normally mellow guy starts to get angry.

Broccolo: When a mellow guy gets mad, everybody better WATCH OUT!Chow asked me to find a barbel steed for him, so I did a little fishing. Fortunately, a barbel steed was one of the few fish that I caught, so I took it back to him. Chow rewarded me with 520 bells, not surprisingly.

Chow: Reward time! Here's 520 bells. I only wish I had more for you, up a tree.You may have noticed a really big snowball in that picture. It actually looks like it’s hovering, but that’s besides the point. I was rolling up two huge snowballs to push them into the river.

Tank? You’re welcome.

Thanks for stopping by. Just a heads-up that I’m working on a new ACCF video, so keep an eye out for it in the next few weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Twiggy Flies Away

Benedict sent me a letter thanking him for the medicine when he was sick recently. He attached a robo-sofa to the letter. Somehow.

When I visited Twiggy, I was surprised to see she was all packed up in boxes and ready to move out of town. Even though Twiggy wasn’t one of my favorites, she’s been in town a long time–since April 8, 2015! Of my current residents, I think only Broccolo has lived here longer.

Twiggy: Whoa, old dog! You showed up at the craziest time! I'm MOVING! Yeah, like, out of town!
Why didn’t you tell me sooner? You could have tweeted.

Over by the northern waterfall, I spotted a large fish shadow in the river. That’s pretty much a guarantee of something worthwhile, so I fished it out…and caught a stringfish!

When I went in to visit Bluebear, she said she wanted to try the squid health kick that’s popular right now. Oh, is there such a thing?

Bluebear: Hey! I totally wanna try that squid health kick that's so popular now, peach!
How about we just play Splatoon instead?

I visited my favorite zebra Savannah, and she asked me to make a delivery to Tank for her. Fortunately, Tank was right outside near her house, so I gave him the package. It contained a bow, which was a bow that you use with an arrow, and not a bow for his hair. ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I returned to Savannah, she gave me 520 bells for helping her out.

I decided to do a little fishing to see if I could find a squid for Bluebear. I wasn’t going to waste too much time on it, just enough to say that I tried. But fortunately, I actually caught a squid after a couple minutes. I took it over to Bluebear, and she rewarded me with 520 bells.

Bluebear: Tee hee hee! I'm so happy! Here, this is for you! Take 520 bells! It's, like, the least I can do.
Yes, it really is the least.

Interesting. That’s the same amount that Savannah gave me, and I’ve noticed it several other times lately too. It must be the new fad. ๐Ÿ˜› The game must decide on a random number and then use it repeatedly over a stretch of a few months. It’s just like the 552 bell trend I noticed in 2015.

Tank told me to take a look up at the sky tonight, so I returned to the game later on. And sure enough, around 9:30 p.m., I spotted the northern lights up above (along with a nearly full moon).
