Last week was another noteworthy one for the residents of Animachi. Case in point: Mayor Aino found the village's first mushroom growing beside one of its many "special" tree stumps.
She also shot down its second golden slingshot. (Bryan nabbed the first a week earlier.)
As for Bryan, he was stoked to stumble upon the Able Sisters working away on the rainbow shirts that surely will be worn by Animachi's citizens during its upcoming gay pride festivities.
Speaking of gay stuff: Bryan paid a visit to Dunwich (of The Dunwich Hoarder fame) early in the week so he could spend some time ogling the muscle-boy signs that sit outside Mayor Terry's pad.
While there, he discovered that someone named Butch will soon move into town--and then made a mental note to return with "housewarming gifts" (let your imaginations run wild) as soon as that happens.
Bryan also make the trek to Mamemura, the village maintained by Anne of the Chic Pixel blog, last week.
It was a genuine thrill to see Mamemura's exotic locales, such as Club 444 (above) and the "Home Center" seen below.
Aside from the shopping spree, Anne, Bryan and Phil (the one with the clover in his hair) also sailed to Mamemura Island and went on a few tours together. Some ended in success, others ended in failure, but all were a blast.
Back in Animachi, Mayor Aino continued her quest to make the town perfectly beautiful and enjoyable--which of course meant that she completed as many public works projects as was humanly possible.
The biggest involved miraculously adding (overnight!) a second floor to the previously single-floored Animachi Museum. Aino's first order of business after its doors opened the following day: plopping down 10,000 bells to rent out one of its exhibition rooms so it could house all of the gyroids that have been filling her dresser drawers for the last four weeks.
Just as exciting (if not more so) for the citizens of Animachi was the highly anticipated grand opening of Club LOL.
Both Aino and Bryan have since become regular patrons, with Bryan booty bumpin' with Dr. Shrunk on opening night:
And Aino shaking a tail feather with her best bud, Barold, shortly after:
Animachi also celebrated the completion of a number of less-exciting public works projects last week, including the "park clock" that--shockingly--was placed near the entrance to Animachi Park.
A few steps away, three street lamps were erected as well--with the one below being the first.
Coming soon (as soon as Flo gets her butt out of town, that is): the sphinx that Rodney wisely suggested to Aino during one of their many impromptu chats.
Lest you should think Mayor Aino's life in Animachi is a boring one, filled with short ribbon-cutting-ceremony speeches and little else, here are three recently snapped screenshots that show just how non-boring her days (and nights) can be:
In case any of you are wondering: yes, that little black thing skittering about near the bottom of the screen is a tarantula (aka the most terrifying of Animachi's terrifying creatures).
The hairy little bugger didn't scare Aino, though--she just slowly followed it until it was cornered in the shadows of Flo's soon-to-be-demolished home ... and then pounced like the daring gal she is.
Not only that, but rather than hand it over to Blathers, Aino boxed it up and set it next to her bed so the rustling of its legs can woo her to sleep at night.
In less creepy news: Aino was pretty chuffed to find Rodney sitting on one of Animachi's many stumps the next morning. What was he doing there? Not a whole lot, apparently:
Still, it was nice to discover that the stump wasn't a completely useless addition to the landscape.
Anyway, that's the gist of what happened in Animachi this past week. What's been going on in your Animal Crossing: New Leaf burgh in the last few days? Feel free to let me know in the comments section below.
