Neopets
« on: May 19, 2005, 04:39:03 PM »
1. Studied for my vocabulary tests.

2. Got a 9 and 9 1/2 on said tests, so I was pretty happy. :) The lowest passing grade is 6 = 80% correct.

3. Met with my literature teacher about my final paper, which she said was very good, so I was happy about that as well.

4-8. Went home, ate a sandwich, finished reading Agatha Christie's "Five Little Pigs," checked my emails, played Neopets, remembered my situation with my housemates and sulked some more before going to take a nap (stayed up very late studying).

9. Got woken up around 7pm by my housemate/friend who wanted to know if I wanted to go shopping with her. I went with her.

10. Shopping then dinner (pannenkoekenhuis!) with nice conversation with housemate, learned new insight into the housemate problem and realised that hope remained!!

11. Went home and talked for another hour.

12. Checked Neopets and found that the war had finally started, yay! And all the lag that goes with it.  :-\

13. Came here, posted on a few boards, then started a completely useless one. :)

So, what did YOU do today?

Neopets is a huge site (I think the biggest entertainment one), which is centered around virtual pets. Sort of. It's a whole virtual economy/world in its own right. :)  It currently has close to 100 million "owners" and 140 million pets, 250,998,000,000 page views, and right now it's getting 10,000 page view per second. Good heavens. O.o

So anyway, you've probably at least heard of it? They're coming out with 2 PS2 games this year, I think, and Warner Bros. is making a movie.  ::) They have a rather extensive merchandise line (go look in walmart or target and such :P). The entire (MASSIVE) site is translated into Portugese, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Chinese x2, Japanese, and Korean.

Well, they have so much junk over there, I can't explain it all. If you want to dare venturing into this... world, here's a good site to reference to if you have questions:
http://www.tineneohelp.com

Here's my account, but I warn you, it only looks... OK, in IE. I still need to figure out how to fix it. :P

amarinda's account

Any questions? XD

Oh yeah, my avatar comes from there. Those are "Slorgs" which are pets for your pets. Hahaha, yeah, it's crazy. You can even have pets for the pets of your pets. Very creatively called petpets and petpetpets, respectively.  :suffer:

Cat's account

Don't forget me :P Amarinda and I just found each other on Neopets. Am I going to start playing regularly again? Probably depends on time and...well...time :D Though, I hadn't heard of petpetpets. Wow, and I thought I was good getting my pets all petpets.

Yeah, Cat and I are dorks. :P

Haha, yeah, well, the nice thing about neopets is that you don't *really* have to play regularly, it depends how much time you want to give. ;) Doing the daily freebies takes maybe 10 minutes. But there's enough to do there to take up ALL your time, so play in moderation! :P

And yes, petpetpets. XD They're all bugs, though. You get them as random events (your petpets find them). ;) I have more trades up for you, BTW. Good luck furnishing your Neohome! But now I REALLY am going to bed, haha! :P

I had an account on neopets back in 2000 XD, then they cancelled it and I got a new one like two years ago :P

But I kinda got sick of playing a whole heap of games each day :-\

Yes, I play everyday when it's possible, but I don't play the *games* everyday. :P I don't count the freebies as games. ;)

Ahhh...I see...well, I think I'll play Pyramids just about daily...seems it's the best way to build up funds quickly...well, more quickly then trying to master the other games.

Games are just plain not the way to earn loooots of np. ;) But they ARE fun and a lot of them give you avatars and trophies and such, if you get good at them. And be careful, it's really easy to become a Pyramids junkie! XD

Considering 75% of this thread is either directly or indirectly related to Neopets, I'd say this thread is now more on-topic than off. ;P
