I know it’s been a while since I posted. Consistency is not my forte. I have a lot of back posts I could make about the Pile of Leaves, the Celebration Hats, Explorer Day, etc. But, I don’t know if I’ll get to them. I did take pictures of all of the events. I’m pretty reliable about posting pictures on Flickr. It’s just the writing about them part that’s hard.
I did have a pretty good day today despite the fact that I have not yet received the second Nintendog EUDLC. I know that Squirt has my back.
Pippy, one of my favorite longtime residents of Doomdoom, is trying to move! Both Vella and I have told her no, but she is still on the (backyard) fence about it. I may enlist Grebo and Nikki to try and talk her out of it because my stink eye is clearly not very effective. Last week we lost Pierce and he was replaced by Spork. I can’t handle another sudden move (Pierce wouldn’t let me talk him out of going)!
After doing the usual chores watering a bazillion flowers (how does Vella do it every day?!) I stopped in to check on Carmen. She was very sick a couple days ago and Vella and I took turns bringing her medicine.
Today she was doing great, but didn’t give me any sort of present for haphazardly looking after her. See if I bring you mop water flavored medicine next time Carmen!
I’ve taken over visiting the city on Wednesdays since Vella can’t be bothered and has everything. (I don’t think I like her). I think Kapp’n hit on me, but I just give him (and everyone else) the stink eye. He should know better than to mess with the Doomdoom ninja.
I stopped in at Redd&8217;s shop first. I never know what I’ll find there— or if it will be legit. Today he had the Famous Painting. Doomdoom’s museum is complete, so I don’t need it, nor do I know if it’s legit, but if anyone wants to test their luck with it, drop me a comment.
I also bought his classic clock. It was overpriced, but my catalog is full of holes. I left the deer scare. I’ve had one of those in my basement for ages. I find it more soothing than scary…
My biggest shock today was to find Frillard filling in at the Marquee. I saw him listed for inspiration and I quickly bought a ticket. This is only the second time in recorded Doomdoom history that Frillard has appeared at the Marquee.
I took my seat and the red curtains parted revealing the aged comedian. “Ready for a thrill?” he hissed, flaring his frill. “Then Frillard’s classic shtick will do the trick! Now, I’d like complete silence as I begin…”
I was the only person in the theater, so I think he was being a little melodramatic. I hadn’t even coughed.
“Prepare to see emotion in motion! You shall now see inspiration in the very air!” He paused and looked a little confused. “Uhh… Now, what was I going to do?I had a great scene that I just thought of……Oh no…Oh! That’s right! Oh, wait, no! Lost it again! It’s curtains for me!”
And it was! The curtain closed on him. I left feeling a little more embarrassed than inspired.
But once out on the street I harnessed my newfound inspiration and thought of… something…Now what was it?… I think it had something to do with kidnapping Stitches and booting Curly or Spork…
