Bob’s Birthday, Inkwell’s RV

Today is New Year’s Day, so Happy New Year, everyone! Isabelle was standing at the event plaza to celebrate the occasion. She was talking about her doggie nature, because 2018 is the year of the dog in the Chinese zodiac.

Isabelle: My doggie nature kicked in pretty strongly when the new year rolled around, though I don't know why...Isabelle: You've got to go with what you know some days, and I know what it's like to be a cute puppy!

I also stuck my head into the fireworks. …Standee. Sorry, I should have finished that thought.

Isabelle gave me the zodiac dog, and I took it home to take a look at it. Hey, it’s potty trained!

It is just me, or does it almost look like a cat?

Today is Bob’s birthday, so I made sure to visit him to help him celebrate.

Bob: Today is all about ME! It's like a holiday!
Well… it is…

For his birthday present, I gave him a Mouth of Truth. 😛

Bob: A Mouth of Truth?! Whoa! I did NOT expect this.
Nobody expects the Mouth of Truth.

Rolf was also there at the party, and I think they had a good time.

One of my Christmas presents (see my Christmas haul) was a 3-pack of Splatoon Amiibos. I scanned the squid Amiibo, and Inkwell the octopus visited the drive-in campground. Inkwell’s RV is splattered in ink and covered with Splatoon brand logos.

Inside, you can find a bunch of items from Splatoon. This includes the ink-splattered wall, ink-splattered floor, black anchor tee, pilot goggles, Splatoon spawn point, Splatoon tower, Splattershot, squid bumper, studio headphones, Super Sea Snail, and Takoroka mesh (cap). I ordered the black anchor tee, since I often wear an anchor tee in Splatoon (even though the one I normally wear is white).

As for Inkwell, I may invite him to move in at some point in the future…just not now. I already have three Amiibo villagers in Forest, and I’ll probably wait until one of them moves out (even though I don’t want them to move just yet). But I’m willing to wait. I’m not going anywhere.

My recent dream visitors have been Suna from Galifrey, Erica from New York, Mayounna from Amy Rose, Alex from Cacao, Dylan from Calmv, Ari from Martinez, Lauren from Woodfall, and Logan from New Leaf. My dream visitor count has topped 2,000 (since the Welcome Amiibo update in late 2016). Thank you all for visiting!

Luna: Records state the number of clients who have experienced a dream about Forest is 2,006.

  1. No, not just you. Knowing there’s no such thing as a Year of the Cat in the Chinese Zodiac is the only way I can tell that statuette is not a cat. Well, ok, there is a Year of the Tiger but a zodiac tiger wouldn’t resemble a domestic cat.

  2. Was this the first year Isabelle made that remark? I do not remember that from before ? I’m sad, can’t find the cap ground amiibo cards where I live.

    1. Yes. Her comments relate to what year it is in the Chinese zodiac. Last year was the year of the rooster, so Isabelle mentioned flying free like a bird. The year before, she mentioned swinging through trees like a monkey.

    1. From what I’ve heard, they will ask to move occasionally…just not very often. But regardless, I could always force one of them out with Inkwell (as long as my town is full at the time).
