Kiki’s Song

I’m happy to report that Bill followed through with his plans, and he is no longer a resident of Forest. I got his goodbye letter in the mail today.

Bill's goodbye letter in Animal Crossing: Wild World.Today was La-Di-Day once again, and several of my villagers offered to sing songs for me. It’s my job to pick one (if I like it enough) to become the new town tune. While I didn’t talk to Static enough times to hear him sing, he did comment on how he likes music as much as he likes a good insult.

Static: My love for music ranks right up there with my love for a good insult.Yuka was sick with a cold, so I…did nothing. Well, that’s not completely true. I laughed at her, so that’s something. 😛

Yuka: So very cold... Can't stop shivering... Lipstick all over face...Since it’s Saturday night, I went down to the Roost to hear some real music. K.K. performed K.K. Love Song for me, which is one of my favorites.

K.K.: All right, get ready to dig the riffs on this ditty: K.K. Love Song!Back outside, the search for a new town tune wasn’t going so well. I didn’t care for any of the songs I had heard…at least until I heard Puddles. She really put her heart into her song and croaked out a winner. Even if she did have a frog in her throat.

Puddles: Believe it or not, I used to sing on the street for cupcakes.But when I heard Kiki’s song, I liked it even better. So I told her she was hired…but oddly enough, she reacted as if I had told her no!

Kiki: Are you serious? Oh man, that's no good, kitty cat!She even started crying! Kiki, this is all a big misunderstanding…

Kiki: It's because I warbled, isn't it? I can't help it if I'm a warbler!I even went back and double-checked my footage to make sure I told her yes, and I did. Yet she was clearly upset; those were not tears of joy. Oh well. Sorry, Kiki.

All three of the fossils I found today got returned to me, but they only earned me about 5,000 bells in total. So I didn’t make a mortgage payment this time.

Anyway, I returned home to put K.K. Love Song in my stereo, and then I saved and ended my game for the night. Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you next time!

Bye Bye Bill

The snowman I built last time send me a letter in the mail, along with a snowman carpet. I put it in my house today.

Wendell: I...MUST EAT IT! YUMMY!In return, he gave me the four-way pattern, which is the intersection of the street paths.

The four-way pattern (street intersection) design that I got from Wendell.Baabara was telling me how she almost became a pop star when she was younger. She said she could sing and dance, but there was one thing she lacked. I then had the option to guess what she was lacking…

Baabara chat dialogue options: Good looks? Cash? What was it?I guessed that good looks were the thing she didn’t have, and naturally, she turned into an angry blue fluffball of rage.

Baabar: ...Good looks?! What makes you say that?! I've always been a vision of loveliness!When I visited Puddles, she was complaining that every day of her life is more boring than the last. She also asked me for red furniture (as she has been for a while), but Nook’s shop didn’t have any today.

Puddles: Y'know, every day of my life is more boring than the last one, splish.I went to say hello to Static, and he was relieved to see it was me and not Bill who came through his door. I guess I’m not the only one who doesn’t like Bill.

Static: Huh? Oh, J-rock, it's you. I thought it was Bill. What a relief.Chevre asked me to make a delivery to Baabara, and I agreed to help. But only because Baabara was literally standing right there.

Blathers: The apatosaur was once called a brontosaur, I'll have you know.The complete apatosaur on display in the museum in Animal Crossing: Wild World.

I made a 25,000 bell payment on my mortgage at town hall, and now I only owe 43,000 more.

On my way back home, I realized I hadn’t seen Bill outside today. So I went inside his house and saw that he was all packed up and ready to move out of town! I did not try to stop him. Fly far, far away, please.

Bill: I hate good-byes! I wish I could crush them between my pecs, Dr. J!That’s all for now. See you Saturday!

Chevre’s Front Yard

When I started the game up tonight, I saw that Kiki was still around. So fortunately, she did not move out of town.

Most of the time, I’m too lazy to build a snowman. It takes time to build one snowball up until it’s big enough to push, and then you have to push it to wherever the other ball is (before building it up as well). But when I find both of them pretty close to each other, I figure I have no excuse not to give it a try. That’s what happened tonight, and I put this guy together.

Snowman: All flawlessly executed! And my face... Perfection!I’m glad he had such a high opinion of himself, because I’m not sure I agreed with him.

It’s not unusual for Baabara to be rude or bossy. But her request today was oddly specific: She wanted me to form a band and play bluegrass music for her to dance to.

Baabara: You should form a band and play bluegrass for me to dance to.With it being Saturday night, I made sure to go down to the Roost to check out some live music from the local singing dog. I asked for a random song and I got to hear a performance of K.K. Jazz. It was putting me to sleep.

Did she do this to make her front yard look nice? Or is it a very big coincidence? I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this in an Animal Crossing game.

On my way home, Pudge pinged me to ask me a question. He said “La la la,” and then asked me what song that was.

Pudge, asking me what he just sang: 1. Our town tune. 2. I love green tea! 3. Can I hear it again?I didn’t really notice any song, so I chose option three (for him to repeat it). He used an emotion that displayed a music note, and he again repeated “La la la,” along with his catchphrase “pudgy” this time. But he didn’t actually sing anything.

Pudge: La la la! Pudgy!I was still confused, so I just took a wild guess and picked the second option, “I love green tea!” He told me that was the correct answer, and he gave me a prize: a blue chair.

After that, I headed home for the night and ended my game. Thanks for stopping by!
