Okay, so I got bored last night (well, this morning at 2 am) and decided to play Animal Crossing. In the game cube version, there is a ghost that comes along during the night which asks you to catch squiggly ghosts things for him. However, there is apparently no such fun thing to do at night in the DS version. A couple of the towns people were still up, wandering about wanting to show me letters and chat about the acorn festival. In the town hall/post office, Phyllis, the pelican that works the late shift, was grumpy as usual. She berates me for not having payed off my house payment to Tom Nook and wishes that the door hits me on the way out of the town hall. But, if you ever play the DS version, don't waste your time playing after 11pm when the stores close unless you feel like looking at constilations. This morning I also decided to play. I had told Lyle, the shady insurance dude, that I like Crazy Redd to come on Fridays. Well, I guess because Tortimer (well, Cornimer for this week) is standing outside the town hall were Redd sets up his tent, Redd has taken the week off so that won't get caught selling stolen goods. Also, in the DS version, Redd will sell you forged paintings. I learned this the hard way, but apparently if Redd has a star in his eye when he is telling you about an item, it is forged. Blathers will tell you it is forged and then Tom will only give a few dollars for it. Also, this morning Blathers was awake when I went to the museum. He had another gripping story of the hardships of fossil hunting- when he was digging up a fossil in wet dirt, a grotesque worm started wiggling to the surface which made him sick to his stomach. I laughed thinking of his reaction to a worm. Blathers also likes eating fish. In the DS version, if you donate a fish, Blathers tells you the best way to cook that fish. His pun for the morning was that large chars are best served charred.
