animal crossing

New Year via games

Obviously there was nowhere to go on New Year’s Eve so I basically spent it on Animal Crossing. Awww, the little villagers threw a party.

Animal Crossing meant a lot to us this year, so I wanted to get a nice photo of me and my husband in the game as the countdown finished and the fireworks went off. So I got us in cute poses and hit the button at JUST the right moment… and the screenshot gallery was full. No photo for you. I cracked the hell up because WHAT BETTER WAY to sum up 2020 than that. Oh well, I took a photo on my phone instead, which has more sentiment in many ways I suppose.

Also Deli wasn’t there and he’s my favourite. :(

I had a quick whirl on Pokemon to get the New Year ones as well. That was more successful, in that I was able to get 2020 Slowpoke (aww) and evolve him within a couple of hours.

And a Pikachu with yet another hat!

Anyway, those were a fun distraction. Now back to the crushing terror of living in the UK under a corrupt government in the middle of a pandemic.

Fun in Animal Crossing

I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH. It provides the perfect distraction from… you know… everything.

Me and my husband share an island. (I suppose we could’ve bought two copies of the game but we’re cheap.) Here’s both of us right at the beginning of the game when everything is still tents.

Since then I’ve built up my house

caught some fish

had animals yell at me

opened a museum

met a fellow fanfiction author

befriended a shy hedgehog

learned tragic hedgehog backstory while smiling merrily away

picked up some otter wisdom

and just generally heard some pretty weird stuff
