Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary 4/1/17

Dear Diary,

Well, I got what I wanted this week, however, I now think I may have made a terrible mistake… The two things are totally unrelated to each other, but now I’m worried.

I have to say that I was slightly disappointed that Mallary left and didn’t include her photo in her goodbye letter. I mean, I know we weren’t exactly what you might call “tight” but I still talked to her and did her favors and she lived her for quite a while. But still no photo? Rude.

As I’d planned, the day after Mallary left town I used Wisp to conjure up an old friend of mine, Anchovy. See, he was one of my first neighbors in the first town I ever lived in on my own. I would’ve preferred Ace, who was my BFF from way back in the beginning, but apparently that’s impossible. But I had Wisp contact Anchovy and ask him to move to Geneva.

Of course, as usual, the minute I spend more than a hot second inside my house, there’s a knock at the door and someone just totally invites themselves over. It’s so rude! So I basically just let Gabi wander around my living room for a minute or two and then left. She didn’t want to be there if I wasn’t there, so she followed me out. Sometimes it’s the only way. I don’t have all day to sit around waiting for you to get bored and leave!

Remember how C-Dog was taking off as my new nickname? Well, Agent S decided to break with that and start calling me “Shmoopy.” It’s a bit much, but hey, whatever. Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever hated a nickname enough to tell them not to use it. Call me whatever you want. Doesn’t bother me.

I had seen where they were constructing the house for Anchovy between my bamboo/zen park and the coffee shop, but realized that the first day he’d moved in I somehow never stopped in to say hi. Oops! And I was so excited to see him, too! I mean, if it was Ace, I probably wouldn’t have forgotten, but… Anyway, I popped in to welcome him to town and he acted like he’d been there for days waiting for an official welcome. Please. It was like, literally one day. Get over yourself. He didn’t remember me from before, but then again, they never do. Still, I remembered how his house had games in it, and it was nice to see that some things never change!

It was a dreary, rainy day when Monty told me he was thinking of moving. After all the trouble I went through to get him to move here, there’s no way I’m letting one of my favorite monkeys slip through my fingers. So I told him in no uncertain terms there was no way he was going anywhere. Sorry!

At the end of the week, I was saying hello to Pippy and she asked me to help out her future self by burying a time capsule for her. Of course, I agreed, but now that I’m writing this diary entry, I realize that I don’t remember actually burying it that day! Ugh. And I think this happened before and I wasn’t able to bury it the next day and I just had to give it back all shamefaced. And they got annoyed because I had promised to do them this favor and screwed it up royally. Sigh. Come back next week and see what happens when I try!
