Well, this week was Christmas in Narnia, so there's a lot to get to. No time to waste!
This was also the week where Nook once again got really insecure about the way he's running his shop. This time around, I actually told him I'd prefer balance, because it doesn't matter to me if he's open super-late, because I tend not to be around then anyway. Not that the selection of merchandise matters either, because, I've pretty much already got everything anyway. But I just like keeping Nook on his toes. And making him pay for the constant construction to change the shop should make up for all the bells he gouged me for when he was building my house!
Well, it took no time at all for Curly's replacement to move into town, and oddly enough, Boone moved into Curly's old plot of land, too. Hm.... Makes me wonder if Curly wasn't forced out or something. Like there's something suspicious going on...
I know it took me a while, but I did finally get around to decorating for the holiday. And I even changed into my Jingle outfit for Christmas. (Now we'll just see how far into spring I leave out the winter furniture!)
It was really sweet of Mom and Dad to send me a Christmas present (especially since I didn't get them a thing!), but then I opened the box...
A molecule shirt? Ugh. I mean, I guess it would look okay for Oktoberfest, but Christmas? Not so much. I'll just... put it away until October, maybe...
So I decided to try and make another snowman, and I guess I should just always try to make them as big as possible, because then they turn out okay. Weird. Oh, and I kept rolling the snowball around for a long time, but it seems you can't actually make it any bigger than yourself. It still makes a really big snowman, though! (And oddly, a snow man who seems to consider himself a snow woman!)
And I got a bed for my troubles! Not that it matters. I already have the entire set of snowman furniture. So I just sell them. Not that I need the bells, either... I just appreciate knowing that I was able to make a properly proportioned snowman. I need that validation in my life.
Yay! It's Christmas!
I wish I could just write a letter to the dude in red so I could get some awesome presents. But no, I've got to work for it. Jingle's around town somewhere, and I've got to find him so he'll give me a present.
He's supposed to hide presents inside people's homes when they're not around, (which is fun, because you can actually go into people's houses and nose around without them there! But only tonight!) but I found Jingle just wandering around town. Oh well, I still got my present!
A Jingle couch! Score! Of course, then I decided to go and get greedy and try to get another one.
See, Jingle's kind of stupid, so as long as you change your hat, he thinks you're a totally different person and will give you another present. I didn't want to be super greedy and change into a bunch of different hats, but I still had this one on me from changing into my Jingle outfit, so I thought I'd give it a go. Sadly, I ended up with a Jingle wall, which I've already got. That's what you get for being greedy!
And yet, everyone else gets presents just for being good and asking for them! How is that fair, I ask you?
