January Fishing Tourney

The first fishing tournament of 2018 was held today, and I decided to participate (since I usually don’t). In fact, this is only my second time participating in Wild World’s fishing tourney. I went over to town hall and had a quick chat with Tortimer.

Tortimer: The Fishing Tourney, as the name suggests, is a contest where you fish.
Thanks for clearing that up.

He said the largest fish wins, and he also said I’ll get a prize if I beat my personal best.

Tortimer: I'll present you with a prize that'll make the young'uns squeal with glee.After catching a squid, I took it to Tortimer. He measured it (15 inches), and then he laughed at me. He informed me that Big Top already caught a tuna that measured 89.1 inches. Well, shoot.

Tortimer: Big Top already caught a tuna that was 89.1 inches.

I wasn’t liking my chances. Still, I fished a bit more. I caught a sea bass, and took it to Tortimer to see how it compared. It was only 41.3 inches. So I basically gave up at that point. Even though I did fish a little while longer, I knew I wasn’t going to win. Why can’t the Wild World tournaments be as easy as my New Leaf tournament was yesterday? 😛

I returned home and checked my mail. The snowman I built yesterday sent me a letter, along with a snowman sofa. I added it to my main room.

Thank you, Jeff! All hail my creator! In thanks, I will soothe your aching muscles with this snowman sofa! It's sooo cozy! -Snowman

A new “Talking to Myself” message was posted on the bulletin board. Sounds like somebody likes to purposely make her sister mad. 😛

-Talking to Myself- If you want to make my sister mad, just cut her bread really thin. She hates that!

Since I just played yesterday, it was too soon for any apples to be on trees. So I didn’t make very much money today. Even though I was fishing for a while, none of the fish I caught were worth much. So I only had 20,000 bells to pay towards my mortgage this time.

I plan on playing again on Tuesday, but I may or may not post another blog entry at that time. If nothing much happens, I may wait until Saturday to post the next entry.

Snowman with an Attitude

I found two snowballs not far apart tonight, so I rolled them up into a snowman. When it came to life, the snowman was wondering what took me so long to build him. Even the precipitation has an attitude in Wild World. 😛

Snowman: I didn't know what was gonna come first... You or spring!

A new “Talking to Myself” message on the bulletin board was about getting a driver’s license. The author wants to get one to take her boyfriend for a ride in her convertible. Hmm, why does she have a convertible if she can’t drive?

-Talking to Myself- I want to get my driver's license. Then I can take my boyfriend for a ride in my convertible.

I checked out the lost-and-found, and Booker had ten pitfall seeds available! Hmm, maybe I’ll have to do something similar to Pitfall Pandemonium in Wild World too.

Ten pitfall seeds in the lost and found.

At the Roost, K.K. Slider performed Go K.K. Rider! for me.

K.K.: All right, get ready to dig the riffs on this ditty: Go K.K. Rider!!

I went fishing in the river, but I didn’t catch anything good. What’s new? Outside of town hall, Kiki gave me an A shirt for free. Since it has been a while since I’ve changed my clothes, I went ahead and put it on.

Kiki: It's a, uh... I can't really explain this, so here it is: an A shirt!
It’s not that hard to explain, really.

I then went inside town hall to make a 40,000 bell mortgage payment before ending my game for the night. I hope you’re all having a good weekend!

Low Temps Prevent Freezing?

I received Puddles’ goodbye letter in the mail today. Ever feel like the letters that animals write are nicer than the animals ever actually are?

Um, like, hi, Jeff, Thanks for being so nice to me in Forest! I'll cherish our memories forever! TOTALLY FOREVER! -Sincerely, PuddlesCrazy Redd was in town, and he had an awesome painting for sale for 3,920 bells. I bought it, but Blathers informed me that the painting was a counterfeit.

I had a chat with Hopper as he stood between Nookington’s and Able Sisters. He told me he needs old-school furniture because he’s mature and sophisticated. But I was feeling immature and unsophisticated, so I had no interest in helping him out. 😛

Hopper: I'm mature and sophisticated! I need old-school furniture!On the bulletin board, I found a weather bulletin posted. It said there will be plenty of snow for making snowmen. But the interesting part is that it said low temps will prevent the lake from freezing. That’s not quite how things work. 😛

-Weather Bulletin- Sticky, plentiful snow. Ideal for snowman making. Low temps will prevent the lake from freezing.And the Message of the Week said not to cry over spilt milk…unless you can cry milk.

*Message of the Week* Don't cry over spilt milk. Unless you can cry milk.
That’s a dairy hard thing to do.

After I was done making my rounds, I made a 40,000 bell mortgage payment at town hall. I then ended my game for the night.

Yesterday, I posted my full review of Animal Crossing: Wild World. I will also add a link to the menu bar.
