Festivale 2018

Last night, I chatted with Hornsby near the town fountain. He said it would be amazing if melted cheese came out of the fountain. Even as someone who likes cheese, I find that idea very disgusting. Sorry, Hornsby. I’m just glad that’s not an official public works project. 😛

Hornsby: Our town's fountain would be totally amazing if melted cheese came out of it.

At Able Sisters today, I recreated a design of Tortimer that was actually sent out as DLC for City Folk in 2009. It was originally called “Mayor’s flag,” but Tortimer isn’t the mayor in New Leaf. So I just called it the “Tortimer flag.” I’ve also added it to the QR Codes page here at JVGS.

Of course, Today is Festivale! Confetti falls from the sky, and the animals dress up in silly hats when they go outside.

Big Top: When I woke up this morning, the sky was pouring confetti!
At least it wasn’t pouring melted cheese.

Boots: Let's whoop it up and get this little town hopping!

Pavé the gyrating peacock can be found at the event plaza, shaking his tail feathers. Viva Festivale, everyone!

Pave: VIVA...FESTIVALE!

Among the confetti falling from the sky, you will also find feathers. When you find three feathers matching Pavé’s requested color, you can exchange them for a piece of Pavé furniture.

Pave: You did good for Pave. Pave thanks you and gives you this Pave lamp!

The villagers will sometimes play games with you to win or trade feathers. But I just hunted around town the catch the ones floating in the air.

Agent S was inside her house, and I was starting to fear she was going to party too hard. 😛

Agent S: It's the one day when I can dance like a complete fool and no one will blink an eye, if I die!

Since I was spending a lot of time outside, I encountered a few balloon presents. I shot this one down right behind Pavé.

I continued catching feathers, and I played until I had acquire five pieces of the Pavé set: I got the floor, chest, closet, and two lamps.

Pave: You did good for Pave. Pave thanks you and gives you this Pave closet!

If you played during Festivale, I hope you had a good time and got all the furniture you wanted!

Aurora: Today's the celebration of dance and music called Festivale! Don't be shy! Just dance and have fun!

My recent dream visitors have been Amanda from Bunny and Mayounna from Amy Rose. Thanks for stopping by!

Three at Last

Last Sunday night, Aurora approached me and told me she thought I could use a bear costume. Why do I need that? Does she think I’m ugly as I am? I can’t bear the thought.

Aurora: Um, J-guy. I hope this isn't presumptuous, but I think you could use a bear costume.
Thanks, honey.

On Wednesday, Hornsby’s eyes lit up when he saw a bathroom stall for sale at Re-Tail. I told him to go ahead and buy it…although I can’t help but feel bad for the stall itself, knowing what Hornsby is going to end up doing to it. 😛

Hornsby: The second I laid eyes on the bathroom stall, I was sold!

Stitches was camping in the igloo, so I said hello. Even though I didn’t invite him to move into town, it was tempting.

Yesterday, Hornsby asked me for some furniture. The only thing I had on hand was the Resetti model from Groundhog Day. I handed it over, and he thanked me by giving me a satellite.

Hornsby: Nice! I had my eye on a Resetti model just like this one.

Today, the fishing tournament was underway. I caught one fish–a 14.30 inch dace, and I gave it to Chip. He informed me that the dace put me in third place.

Chip: Woo! That puts you in third place! Nyuk nyuk nyuk!

I saw on Tumblr that Breezy was looking for a cream sofa, and I had one to give her. So I invited her over to pick it up, and she gave me some perfect fruit in return.

Breezy arrives in Forest.

You may remember I made a Dream Suite Adventure of Breezy’s previous town Avenir. I also use her Mii on my Tomodachi Life island.

Since this was her first visit to Forest, I gave her a quick tour. I showed her my house, and she seemed to enjoy my rooms…especially the frog room.

Breezy: Frogs are my fav animal.

She hadn’t seen the Splatoon items in New Leaf, so I let her visit Inkwell’s RV and she ordered a few things. Meanwhile, Inkwell told me a tall tale about towing his van across the mountains with his teeth.

Inkwell: I towed this van across the mountains using my teeth. Ha! Splat!
Booyah!

We walked around town, and she also checked out Booker’s house. It actually had some roaches inside…oops! Booker should play more often, uh, I guess…

Breezy explores the Gulliver room in Booker's house.

She went over to the face-cutout standee, and…well, I think you know what happened. 😀

Breezy struggles to get out of a pitfall behind my face-cutout standee.

She was an angry inkling after that, haha. But she seemed to enjoy my town overall. Enjoy the cream sofa, Breezy! And thanks for the visit, and the fruit!

After she left, I went inside of Chip’s tent to check out the fishing tournament winners’ ceremony. As I had hoped, I remained in third place!

Chip: J
Woo! I’m #3!

Aurora was the big winner, and Molly got 2nd place. But I was just happy to finally get my bronze fish trophy.

I took it up to my trophy room at the museum. I now have all three fishing trophies. Although, I now realize that I only have the gold Bug-Off trophy. So I’ll still need to get silver and bronze to complete my bug trophy collection.

Groundhog Day 2018

On Wednesday night, Molly was in Re-Tail, and she wanted to buy the men’s toilet!

Molly: I love the men's toilet. And I don't normally make impulse purchases, but...

Since she wanted it so bad, who am I to stop her?

Molly: I feel like I got a solid deal today!
Solid? It’s more of a liquid thing…

Vivian the wolf then asked me for a new catchphrase. I told her to say “blue moon,” since she asked on the night of an actual blue moon (the 2nd full moon within a calendar month).

Vivian: So you think I should be saying blue moon?

Today is February 2nd, which is Groundhog Day in America. To celebrate the occasion, Isabelle can be found at the event plaza, handing out a Resetti model.

Isabelle: It's a Resetti model! Please take it in celebration of our town's Groundhog Day!

There’s also a face-cutout standee for the holiday. So I put on my best angry mole face. Look, I’m Upsetti!

Sticking my angry mole mug in the standee for Groundhog Day.

Around 9:00 tonight, I noticed the northern lights up in the sky. Here’s a look at them from Forest’s event plaza.

I went around shaking some trees, and I caught a bee. And there were two pieces of furniture that fell from trees. Interestingly, they were both from the same set: The modern wood chest and the modern wood closet.

My recent dream visitors have been Ema from Furbies, Mayounna from Amy Rose, Preston from Konoha, Laura from Kaiõ, and Timber from Xing. Thanks for stopping by!
