Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary 1


Dear Diary,

While everyone else gets to live it up at E3, I was living my regular little life and enjoying the fun in Geneva. There was a lot of time capsule action, and weirdly… no new resident. I’m a little worried that it’s been a long time since Chow moved out and no one new has moved in. Geneva is an absolutely fabulous town and anyone in their right mind would kill to live here. There’s only a limited number of spaces available, and it hurts me deeply to think that they’re not all filled!

Read on to find out about all the action this week!


Remember how last week I went to visit the Reset Surveillance Center and Resetti gave me his photo so I could commemorate our friendship? (Or as he sees it, my obsession with him!) Well, while the other photos have other personal information, Resetti’s just has his favorite phrase… which kind of creeps me out a little. I mean, seriously… what is that all about? Better not to ask…


I had another visit from Katrina, and there was more fortune-telling nonsense. I keep thinking that I have to be close to the number of visits that will inspire her to open up a permanent shop in Geneva, but I’m pretty sure I’m less than halfway there. We’ll see…


I’ve had a couple of campers since Chow left, but Queenie was the first one that I actively tried to inspire to move to Geneva. Unfortunately, she declined. She was nice about it, but she still turned me down. Twice! I wonder if I’ll ever get a tenth resident. I will feel so ashamed if Geneva can only support nine residents. It should be ten! Always ten!


For some reason, this week was all about time capsules. As you might recall, I like to bury people’s time capsules in front of their houses, so they’re easy to find. Of course, this means that more often than not, I stumble across a hole in the ground and dig it up to find a time capsule before they ask me to uncover it. First I found Shari’s, which was a stupid letter with a green stripe tank that she gave me to say thanks. But later in the week, I dug up Tiffany’s, which was her old work shirt (no matter how long you leave it buried, that’s never coming back in style, Tiff), but in that case, I actually got a painting set as a reward for my efforts. And then still later in the week, Lopez asked me to bury one! What is with these people and their freakin’ time capsules? Get a hobby!


It was Peanut’s birthday this week, and I couldn’t find anything that seemed like an appropriate gift, so I totally just wrapped up a beatnik tank and gave it to her. (I thought she’d look good in it) And wouldn’t you believe it, but she totally loved it! Not that she put it on or anything, but still. It’s nice to know that even if I half-assed it, my instincts are spot on!


I have to say that this was a slightly weird week. First, Hopper wanted to show me his common bed, which seemed wildly inappropriate (although if it’s a common bed, I wonder how many other people he showed it to first…), but then it just turned out he wanted to sell it to me. And while I do adore Poncho, Lopez is going out of his way to woo me, as you can see from this photo I took of one of our more recent encounters. Just look how horny Lopez is! What? I’m talking about the horns on his head? What did you think I meant? Get your mind out of the gutter! Geeze!


This week my friend Jonathan was finally able to swing by for a quick visit. He couldn’t stay long, but he talked to some of my neighbors, and took a few of the items I’d laid out in front of the train station for people to take. He didn’t snatch all of them up, but then again, I’ve got doubles of doubles lying there. And what are you going to do with two pieces of the same ice furniture? Whateves. I’m hoping that his visit will lead to someone who moved out of his town to move into mine! (fingers crossed!)


Hopper tried to move away, but first of all, he’s the only cranky resident I’ve got (which I can’t believe, because I would love to have a whole town full of cranky animals), and second of all, I don’t have a replacement for Chow yet. Bad enough that Narnia only has nine townspeople (the shame!), but to have eight? I think I would die!


I love when I visit in the early morning and see that someone is home, but when I go inside, they’re totally just standing there asleep. And I literally mean sleeping standing up! Tiffany has no excuse, because she doesn’t actually have a bed in her house, but honestly, check on anyone in the morning who is still asleep and their door is open, and you’ll find them just standing there like a zombie! It’s kind of hilarious. And if Tifffany could get 12 continuous hours of beauty rest, she wouldn’t need so much makeup! Which is totally her personality, so I wouldn’t have it any other way! Wake up! And put on your mascara!


The fund for the round topiary continues to inch towards completion. I know that it’s going to take a few bells from me to finish it off, but God, you’d think that no one in town cares about having a round topiary in town to brighten up the mood. Maybe they don’t have any extra bells to be throwing around… Whatever. All I know is that it’s going to be quite a while before this stupid bush gets built.


I was also disappointed to finally get another visit from Redd only to find that every single one of the four items he had for sale in his shady little tent was already on display in my museum. I should totally call Copper on his ass. See how he likes it! Shady little fox! Can’t trust him as far as you can throw him! (which isn’t very far — my upper body strength isn’t what it once was!)

(Writer) I love Animal Crossing, music games (even though I can’t sing or play instruments) and adventure games. And the occasional 40+ hr JRPG when I can find the time! I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, Frank.

    Even if the camper declines, they may change their mind if you keep asking them. I think I had to pester Lolly like 30 times before she finally relented, and even then I still had to beat her in a game of rock, paper, scissors. :-P But I finally got my adorable grey kitty and I regret nothing!
