I had a nightmare about the Acorn Festival the night before it actually started. I think it's a testament to how unfortunate my Animal Crossing obsession has become*. I dreamed that Tortimer had gone crazy and transformed the town into a scary, reality-shifting carnival of terror, and the only place I was safe was in the confines of my in-game home. And even then, the weird shit tried to get me.
It didn't help that when I turned on the game to play, Tortimer was wearing this fucking acorn mask and cackling creepily whenever I talked to him.
So you can imagine how traumatizing it was the following day to read this, linked via Twitter by auracel. I read the entire thing after getting home from work, feeling kind of light headed and pretty hungry, and in generally funky head space. Needless to say, I dreaded going to sleep last night a little more than usual**.
*Also the fact that this isn't the first Animal Crossing nightmare I've had. I had another one when I was worried I might never get my golden slingshot.
**I didn't have any weird Animal Crossing dreams last night. Also, my town doesn't have very many acorns in it because I replaced all of the trees with fruit trees. I AM SEEING THE ERROR OF MY WAYS NOW.
