My First Snowman!

I was in the mood for some Doubutsu no Mori last night, so I turned the game on and settled in for a relaxing game play session! I realized that I hadn’t played since I purchased all of the grab bags during Shogatsu, so I opened those up. Well, I tried to anyway. At first, my pockets were too full, and the game told me that the bag wouldn’t open if I didn’t have three spaces available! Geez, the nerve!

Do you ever feel like Animal Crossing games sometimes like to sass you for no reason?

I got a few good things in the grab bags. I really like the star shirt I got, for example. But then I opened up stuff that was total crap, like ugly wallpaper and two traffic cones. TWO. What the hell do I need those for?!

Overall, I enjoyed opening all the grab bags, because you never know what you’re getting! I kept a few things (like the star shirt and the wooden floor shown below) and sold the rest for a nice little profit.

My house is looking cozy!

With that out of the way, I began strolling through town, talking to villagers and digging up fossils/ gyroids. I stopped by the dump and found this extremely weird shirt! It looks like blood stains! When I translated the name of it, it simply said “scoop.” Um, whatever! It’ll be cool to wear around Halloween.

Meanwhile, Kizzu asked for my birthday. I better get a nice present when it rolls around!

I better get a present!

Next, I stopped to meet a new villager. His name is Hippocrates (Rollo) and he seems pretty cool and fun! Welcome to Weezey,  Hippocrates!

When I was running by the police station, I surprised myself by kicking a snowball! I didn’t even see it! I’m so happy to see snowballs in this game. I kept an eye out for the other one while I finished my walk around town. I soon found it, but when I tried to roll it over my bridge, it fell into the water! There was nothing I could do but watch helplessly as it floated away.

Luckily, I went into my house and came back out, which resets the snowballs. I found the new one quickly, which was nice. I didn’t feel like running around everywhere trying to find it! I decided to make a snowman right by my house. He seemed pleased with the way he turned out!

The last thing I wanted to do was mail some fossils away. When I did that, it pushed the mail into my mailbox, and I was delighted to see that I had a letter from the snowman I had just built! He gave me a snowman carpet for my troubles.

So there you have it! I was happy I made a perfect snowman in this game on my first try, especially because it’s not really that easy to do sometimes! See ya!
