Timber Bottle Mail #7

After dropping so many bells on turnips on Sunday, I decided to load up Timber twice today: once in the morning, and a second time in the evening.

The weather this morning seemed pretty nice, although the morning mist stuck around a little longer than usual. Pete had already been by and dropped off a letter from Redd containing this week’s password.

Rodeo was waiting right outside my front door to ask me a question that seemed… very out of character for him.

Lucy was also waiting just off screen to brag about her new designer clothes. I still can’t quite believe she was wearing an outfit by the one and onlysomeone from a townIcon_0007_Pitfall

Next, I headed over to Nooks, but sadly his turnip prices were still pretty abysmal, so I decided to hold onto my stash.

I was on my way to tend my flower gardens when I was tackled by an Angry Bird™ (I’m so sorry for that).

Honestly Roald probably had every reason to be frustrated since I still – for the life of me – can’t remember ever inviting him over.

My tulip garden seemed to be pretty happy at least, since a purple tulip popped up overnight!

I noticed Gracie’s car was parked up by the town hall while I was watering my gardens, but I couldn’t let her see me sans accessoire; she’d run me over on the spot! And I’m not so sure the insurance that shady otter sold me would cover that… 

I sprinted over to the Able Sisters to see if they had any emergency supplies. A moustache maybe? An eyepatch?

Uhh… Well, it serves its purpose I guess…

Now it was my time to shine! Today’s the day I finally get my fashionista badge, I’m sure of it!

She asked me a whole bunch of questions – from surviving ripped jeans to collar etiquette. I decided to use the foolproof strategy of… just choosing the first answer for each question.

I did it! Icon_0029_Party-popper Now the next time Gracie’s in town I’ll be able to get my hands on her exclusive items. It was here that I decided to end my play first session, so I could return in the evening to check turnip prices a second time.

The weather took a complete 180º this evening: the clouds were a dull grey and rain was soaking every last inch of town. And to think I spent twenty minutes watering all my flowers this morning… Icon_0003_Watering-can

Earlier I had noticed Bunnie’s house was still on my map. I guessed she must have changed her mind about moving so I was pretty confused when I visited her and saw this:

I had no idea villagers could remain in boxes for two days before moving out! Is this just something I’ve never noticed before? I haven’t seen this kind of behaviour in any game to date… I didn’t bother asking her to stay, I figure it’s totally her decision at this point.

Many villagers were still going about their business in Timber despite the storm. Marina was searching for a bathmat that Bunnie had tipped her off about.

Looks like Bunnie sent poor Marina on a wild bathmat chase and planned on leaving town before she caught on!

Baabara was also out braving the rain. She was sure to remind me about the flea market coming up this weekend.

The flea market is one of the few events that were actually removed in New Leaf. I kind of miss it (even if it has become somewhat redundant) so I’ll definitely be taking part.

As for Rocco he’s still, well, you know. Icon_0004_Medicine

Come on pal, I think it’s time you let go… Just close your eyes, it’ll all be over soon.

I bumped into Marina a second time when I left Rocco’s place. It looked like she had given up hope on ever finding the elusive bathmat. She did, however, ask me a question I’ve been asking myself for weeks now…

Oh, by the way, this evening’s turnip prices were also awful, so my house is still packed with 990 white turnips. Icon_0009_White-Turnip

I decided to shelter from the rain with a hot coffee at the Roost before calling it a day in Timber.

Yeesh, this was such a long post – sorry about that! I’ll try to be more concise in my next entry.

Until next time! Icon_0027_Lucky-clover
