Cblogs of 08/30/13 and bbainisms


Oops! I nearly forgot about Friday's recaps! I've been spending way too much time playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf this week, which was a gift from my boyfriend (now that I have constant access to his 3DS since we're living together). It was a gift and a curse, since I don't know how I'm expected to get anything important done when there is a new Animal Crossing to play. 

In Animal Crossing, I became the new mayor of Inaba (we're both really big fans of Persona 4), and quickly got to work building my house, meeting the neighbors, and catching fish. At the moment, my small house is mostly an aquarium of sorts, housing some of my favorite animals (squid, octopus, nautilus, piranha, ocean sunfish). I haven't found too much actual furniture that I really like yet. 

My neighbors are all pretty cool, for the most part. Genji and Lobo are my favorites so far. Pancetti and Chops are pretty weird, and the other neighbors are OK but mostly forgettable. I always hope I get Bob or Octavian, because they're awesome, but I don't think I've ever had them in any of my Animal Crossing towns. Oh well.

Also, Nook's shop hasn't been selling any tools except the fishing rod and shovel all week, and it's starting to piss me off! No bug nets, no axes, no watering cans, no slingshots... give me options, Nook! I can't wait for the store to expand, but I'm not sure when that will happen. 

Anyway, these recaps are late enough already so I better stop talking and just post the damn thing! ...and also I can get back to Animal Crossing ;)
