Woof! I've got another massive update from Narnia this week because it was a major holiday, and this time I was right there in the thick of it! No time to waste, so jump! Jump!
The week kicked off with the countdown to the new year! This is one holiday that I don't miss because it's at the same exact time every year. Easy to remember! And of course, there's lots of fun to be had!
I mean, what's a party without some poppers?
And of course, if you do enough poppers, you're gonna see some fireworks! Happy New Year!
And when you wake up on New Year's Day, there's a bunch of letters from your good friends waiting in your mailbox to wish you a good new year full of fun and awesomeness. Curly's was my favorite this time around, so I wanted to share.
Nintendo also sent along a little present to celebrate the new year, but it was just a Snowman Vanity. I got excited for a second because I thought it was a brand new piece added to the snowman set that you couldn't get from a snowman, but I totally already had this one. Oh well! Good money if you sell the special furniture pieces to Nook! (I just hope Nintendo doesn't find out that I sell some of their presents for the bells!)
I also got a letter from my Mom, who has already got her year off to a rollicking start in her usual fashion. She's such a wackadoodle!
And of course, you can't forget to visit Town Hall on January 1, because that's when the mayor hands out the New Year's Shirt!
I had to ask around to find out that the design on the front is supposed to be a dragon. You could've told me it was a five-car pile-up and I would've believed you. At least the "2012" on the back is perfectly legible!
Naturally, after those two days of pure excitement, things calmed down significantly as the week went on. In fact, it was pretty quiet. Guess everyone was hung over/tired after all the partying. So I was a little surprised when Octavian confided that he was thinking about moving. I shut that down on the quickfast, and he seemed to change his mind. Now that I think about it, I probably should've sent him a present to make sure he stuck around, but I'm pretty confident he meant what he said. (And I didn't even have to cry!)
Oh, and I also had some good luck when I made another snowman. I'm doing much better this winter. I'd given up because I could never get it quite right. Well, I mean, I liked the shape of the snowmen I made, but they got all pissy because their heads were too small or whatever. Sigh. Anyway, this guy thanked me with a snowman that I can put in my very own home that will never melt! Won't really go with my solid gold furnishings, but for the wintertime, it might be fun... Or in the summer! Then it's even better! Christmas in July, anybody?
