Do you use the furima (clothing trade market)?
I've been using the furima (clothing trading market) a lot lately. Do other people use it as well?

If you don't use it, would you be interested in some basic instructions?

If you do use it, would you be interested in a list of common Japanese words/phrases that people post?
(For example: 何でも=anything; 以外=with the exception of, so 何でも以外靴下means the person will take anything except socks.)

My trades usually just say 何でも, because I like surprises. :) Sometimes I ask for 何でもくつ but nobody's offered any yet.

Blog Topic: Life
alice, poupee
The topic is "Life" and this week's item is a decorated plant. (Someone want to add more information on what the decorations mean?) Go here to write your entry.

(I don't have time to write about the new event right now - go ride the bus and see what happens!)

Soccer Game + Weekly Blog
New Blog Topic: This week is "Comedy" and the free item is a squeaky-mallet for your room. Go here to write an entry.

New Game: There's a soccer game in town - click on the pink soccer ball on the top left of the town map and then select one of the game machines.

1. Decide which part of the net to aim for (top, bottom, or center - but click the button when the goalee is out of the way!)
2. Click the red button to kick. Try and do it when the ball is in the center (red) part of the slider.
3. If you get 3 goals you get 10 coins. (I don't know how many times/day you can play this).

Also it looks like the kappas are giving out new items - I got a pot or something from them which I've never seen before. Is this happening to anyone else

Blog Topic: Fashion (get a free item)
alice, poupee
This week's blog topic is "Fashion". If you go here and post an entry, you will receive a pair of boots for your room.

(Why do I want boots lying around my room? Why not!)

Free Items
I remember people used to post these. Okay, here's what I found:

EDIT: The blog topic changed today, its Romance now - I just updated the link.

1. On Nicotto Mountain (that's the big green triangular thing on the town map), you can pick strawberries 3 times per day and get either items or coins (So far I've only gotten an item once).

2. Buy and wear one of the buckets from the fashion shop. Then talk to the kappas in town and they will each give you an item or coins once per day. (So far I only found 2 kappas but I think there's 3?) The bucket costs 300coins so I guess it's not *really* free, though.

3. Once per week, you get a room item for writing a blog entry on a certain topic. This week's topic is "Romance" and the item is a box with a ring. (Go here to write your entry.)

4. Talk to some of the animal people in town and they give you items from the site's sponsors. (Try the ones standing outside the sponsor shops.) I got a band poster and a jar of tea.

Anyone find anything else?

You can get a free item by writing in your blog. For April 16-22 the topic is Poem/Novel and the item is a stack of books for your room.

Go here and write a blog post. The item will appear in your room when you are done. (I think it has to be the first post of the day - I'm not sure about this, though!)

If you have problems, check this post.
