Pond Smelt Tourney

Before I get into today’s blog, I just wanted to share that Shaolin has a new resident.  I’m not pleased.  She moved in next door to Rowan (in Margie’s old spot) and she’s fugly.  Well, not as bad as Elise, but she’s pretty gross nonetheless.

Meet Bella

Yeah that’s right, it’s Bella the Pimple Queen.  Blah.  Somebody get her some facial cleanser!

Anyway, my character Deb has been logging in a bit more often, since King Squirt is still planning on retiring soon.  (If only he could find those last few gyroids!  And maybe find the UFO… but I’ve decided that shooting Gulliver down is not one of Squirt’s priorities.)  Deb, unlike Squirt, still has a lot of stuff to do before her catalog will be complete!  Earlier this week, she shot down the wonderous Golden Slingshot.

Of course, Deb is the character who always has to be a fashionista, and she doesn’t care for the gaudy golden tools.  (She has the complete Silver Tool set and is quite pleased with it.)  So this golden slingshot is waiting in the FREE section by the Shaolin Gates, ready for someone to come and snatch it!  😛

Now for today’s news:  The Fishing Tournament!  Earlier this week, Deb had caught a couple of scary Football fish and she decided to keep one in her house – just in case she could use it in the upcoming tournament.  Sadly, when she spoke with Chip, she found out what sort of tournament was being held this month:

Pond Smelt Fishing Tourney

Pond Smelts.  And ONLY pond smelts.  BOO!  So Deb went up and down the river.  She only saw small shadows, so of course she cast her fishing line out to them.  Every time, it was a pond smelt!  It was like Chip had just brought a bucket full of pond smelts and dumped them in the river.  Deb ended up catching 5 pond smelts in a row!  She entered them all in the competition, and last I checked, she was winning!

Deb's Winning Catch

Wouldn’t it be nice for Deb to finally win a contest, instead of just getting that lame Honorable Mention (aka the You Suck Certificate) letter in the mail?  Let’s hope that none of the other townies will surpass 6.7 inches.  I won’t find out the results til after the tournament.  Fingers crossed!  😀

In DLC news, nothing really has been announced lately.  Sad.  The only clue I have is for the next US DLC, which is going to be released for Valentine’s Day.  I hope it’s something cute!  If I hear any other info, I’ll be sure to post it here!

Before I go…  a bottle was found by the beach.  There was no note attached, only this photo was shoved inside, with a quick little comment:

Pippin is the UFO Expert now!

At least SOMEONE is having some luck finding the UFO!  😛

  1. I have not had Bella in any of the three ACs yet. She is a site for sure!
    I love your pic for the golden balloons and golden slingshot, the balloons look so cool.
    I had a horse mackerel fish tourney in Sparta today, I only went to the city, placed an 18000 bid on a snowman clock, bought a painting from Redd, and got “Two Days Ago” from KK tonight.
    I also shot down the UFO once in my WW town Painvill… I have yet to see it in City Folk.

  2. I don’t like the mice in ACWW, Bella has got such a high pitched voice, ugh! xD
    And wooot, you shot Gulliver down!! xD It’s always exciting when he flys over the town and most of the times you’re too far away of him and have to run like hell to get him (not to forget that you also are almost too slow to find your slingshot in your bag lol) Well done! 😀
