Today saw a frantic scramble as I desperately attempted to offload 1440 turnips onto an unsuspecting pair of raccoons from overseas, given that my own Timmy and Tommy were offering a mere 27 bells per, a fair bit short of the 107 bells per I paid in the first place! Thankfully, I found, after several hours of using it, a seller on Turnip.exchange! 215 bells per turnip, and “tips not necessary but greatly appreciated!” so I gave them a Nook Miles Ticket, as I saw those are in high demand by other sellers, so I figured this gal could use it!
In other Animal Crossing news, I have villager #10, and he’s a cranky one!
His name is Boyd and I love him already. He’s evidently not a fan of fishing, but that won’t stop him trying! This means Boyd joins Diva, Teddy, Coco, Rodeo, Lopez, Bangle, Sterling, Bettina, and Kitt on the idyllic Halfhill!
Currently I’m at a 2 star island rating, so I’m gonna start sprucing up the joint, maybe move houses around so there’s an actual neighbourhood area of sorts, rather than a disjointed “wherever I can shove them” scheme going on. Could do with some more bridges and ramps too. Throw money at the island and see what sticks!
In other news, I made a PSA:
Catch every wasp the safe and easy way!
Yes, it’s that time of year where supermarkets realise they have entirely too many Easter eggs, and so have resorted to slashing their prices by up to 75% (in the case of where I work at least), meaning I am getting 6 small eggs for 96p, large eggs for a £1 each, Lindt bunnies for a mere 50p!
Not only that, but as a valued staff member and very important key worker or whatever the buzzword is, I get a further 15% off! I knew there had to be a perk to going outdoors in this crisis!
Nah, truth be told, I’ve had a fairly easy time. I’ve had to point out to a few customers that we have a one-way system in the store, and I’ve pointedly backed off from people who invade my personal space, but shit I’d do that anyway so this is not a new sensation. It does help that I start at 4am, 4 hours before the store actually opens, so I’m not really facing customers for a long time, and occasionally, you get customer messages like this:
That always warms the heart to see! (it’s a shame that we had sold out of that particular item so I had to subsititute it for a way more expensive one, but thankfully they pay the cheaper price of the two items)
Anyway, it’s time for some Fire Emblem.
