    *Actually* Back

    I think I posted a year or so ago that I was back after a long hiatus. Well, my computer didn't work then so that lasted about a week. 馃槄 This time, I have a functional computer, and I've actually been playing for a month-ish, so I'm back FOR REAL. 馃檪

    Enter the Runway #99!

    Right now I appear to be unable to edit The Runway thread to show the winners. Not sure what's wrong, but the editor is extremely slow, and it's now failed to save all my edits 2 times. 馃槥 I will continue to try and get it done, but I wanted to post next week's theme anyway, because there's a good chance I won't be able to post the results today. If you're new to the contest, or simply want a reminder of the (updated!) rules, they can be found right here. If you want to send me a screenshot of your entry, but don't know how, check out this guide. Current theme: Executive Realness Description: Dress up a pet as a CEO/manager/general business person. (If your pet is working from home at the moment, they're still dressing as if they're going into the office, so they'll look professional during the numerous video calls they have to take during the day. 馃槈) Entering period: Monday, March 23 - Sunday, March 29 Voting period: Monday, March 30 - Sunday, April 5 If you have any questions about this round, or the Runway in general, just post them here, or send me a message. *** Thanks for your suggestions for the 100th round! I'll be putting up a poll soon. ***

    I checked the post today and there were two letters from the hospital; there's me fervently hoping they were cancelling my MRI but no, just copies of stuff from the neurologist to my local surgery and the MS nurse, boo! I got out to the supermarket today to collect the wheeled shopping trolley I bought on Ebay, they kindly unpacked and assembled it for me and I took it on its maiden voyage bringing some groceries home. Still an exhausting experience - towing the trolley gave me the same nerve fatigue issues that I have if I try to carry anything; basically it feels like my bones have turned to lead and my already compromised balance/stability becomes much worse, but I managed it and can do it again. 馃挭 what was in the trolley was WAY more than I'd have been able to carry, for the same level of physical issues, and, importantly, because I wasn't actually carrying anything it didn't just get worse and worse during the walk home as it does it I am. So VERY glad I bought this trolley! I made it slowly around all the store. Still no loo roll, tissues or kitchen towel. No bleach/anti-bac wipes, no tinned tomatoes, barely any pasta. But plenty of bread and milk, and the fruit and veg was fully stocked too. So at least some stabilising is happening. This was at 3 o'clock in the afternoon too. No doubt the shelves are all full at 8am, but I've no intention of going there then. I don't fancy standing out in the car park at the end of a massive well-spaced-out queue for hours while they slowly let people in. 馃槄 I had to queue this afternoon but only for 5 minutes or so.

    I'm a doctor and I'm at the hospital daily .. nothing changed really .. but number of "normal" patients have decreased due to people being afraid of visiting hospitals , although there is no Covid-19 unit where i work ... they get sent somewhere else ... but anyone who is suffering from the slightest respiratory symptoms is coming in for x-ray / scans .. in my region there are no reported confirmed cases so far .. but in the capital Beirut and regions closer to it there are about 300 confirmed cases , most came from abroad (they were in Iran , UK & Italy) .. which is still considered low-to-medium .. the numbers are rising but thankfully not exponentially so far .. people are mostly abiding with self-quarantine and almost everything is closed .. Grocery stores put plastic gloves and hand sanitizers for people entering them .. no panic buying but rice , fruits and veggie prices are doubled / tripled .. surgical masks , gloves , and cleaning products too .. people have no money to hoard items anyway ... especially that we have a massive economic crisis since last September .. protests were still going on until the first case of Covid-19 was confirmed .. so now the government is happy and relieved ... the banks are closed , happy and relieved as well ... Praying this will be over soon Stay safe , world 鉂わ笍

    Stealthy isn't very Pop-Starry is it ? like , she would look bleak , although I would style her somewhat like Grace Jones .. but her name is Russian , not Jamaican .. Desert seems the best option so far I suppose .. and yes I do love the exotic desert clothes more than Stealthy , plus those Gorgeous Blue Eyes like @jellysundae said. And shes going out for her first Soiree in the new look

    Hmm let's see if I have any deranged ideas: Looking Like 100/100K Neopoints: Dress up a Neopet to look like 100 OR 100K Neopoints/Neocash (so either super tacky or expensive-looking) 100 Rounds Old Party: Dress an elderly Neopet for a 100 Rounds Party! 100-year Time Warp: Dress a Neopet like the time traveled either 100 years to the past OR 100 years into the future

    So adorable! She looks great! 鉂わ笍 I guess it's my fault. That's why I said "on some species" because on some others, it looks good. The point was when it's NC they tend to make the item look good to the majority of the species, while when it's NP they don't.

    HAHAHAHA, yes! I got to win too!!! Come on TDNers, get those wishes in, the Well is liking us right now! Now I need to choose my next thing to wish for. 鈽猴笍 I did have that gut-reaction frisson on seeing I had a message from TNT this morning. I'm all "oh no, what have I done?! 馃槯" and opened my inbox with trepidation, but phew! Yay, I'd not commited some terrible crime after all! Wait, this neomail... "when you go to Neopets next"... huh?? Is my inbox confused as to where it is? Is there some existential crisis going on here? 馃槄

    I work in an "essential job" company so I still have to go to work everyday until I get any of the symptoms. 2 people have already been quarantined at work that I know of. We have a lot of crazy but understandable rules now as we try to work without being at risk or being a risk to any one else. All people in my country need to work at home if they can and a lot of stuff is closed. Luckily no grocery stores or pharmacies and such. Some shops have taken measures against the hoarding too by putting a max amount you can buy on stuff. As an introvert that lives alone I don't mind to be at home and I wouldn't have minded either if I couldn't get to work (as long as I would get payed!) but the one thing I do miss a lot is my training. Since January I finally switched position at work giving me the opportunity to do some sports again and I've been loving it. We had a seminar planned for mid April but the seminar and the trainings have all been cancelled. I would have celebrated my birthday with them. I've been practicing a few things I remembered at home but it's not the same. I'm not complaining though, (well maybe a little, I think that's because everything else in my way of living hasn't really changed much so it feels as if my hobby has been stolen from me but not the work stuff) but it's only a minor thing. I also know of ppl who had a deceased relative (not due to the virus) but they can't hold a funeral with friends. There's no more than 10 or so people allowed. No food or drinks or any of that. Officially they're not even allowed to hug each other to comfort one another since we all need to keep at least 1 meter of distance between people. We've been sending out virtual hugs as that's the best we can do at the moment. I hope all TDN'ers and their families are and will be safe!

    I've been published a few times now, hoping to get 10 publications for the avatar within the year! I've never had a submission rejected, although I have had one held for several issues before it was published. They accept all types of articles - listicles, quizzes, column-styles, reports, opinion pieces, just about anything. I'm not sure about getting stories published, but I believe it's easiest to get one published when there aren't too many active series. It's a little harder to get published now, because the NT doesn't seem to come out consistently anymore, but don't let that discourage you! The plus there is that it doesn't seem to matter anymore when you submit, as all submissions appear to be considered at one time rather than singularly as they roll in. When you have an article idea, search up the keywords relating to it in the Neopian Times search box. Make sure your article hasn't already been written! They aren't likely to publish an article on a specific topic that's already been written about, unless lots has changed since the previous article was published. Ensure your article is written in the tone of Neopets culture. Articles shouldn't talk about Neopets as though it's an online game, but rather as though you are a citizen of Neopia, caring for your pets within that world, culture and lore. Pay attention to your tone. Read out loud what you've written - if it feels awkward, it probably is. Try to write the words you would speak out loud if you were explaining your topic to someone verbally. Proper grammar and spelling are a must. Run your article through an error catcher, or if you're hearing, try listening to it through Google translate by copying and pasting it into the translation box and hitting the speaker - I'm deaf, but I've been told a lot of hearing people find this to be a great way to notice their errors. I hope this helps! 馃檪

    It's so interesting to see how different things are in other countries. I live in Southeast Asia and when the news of COVID-19 broke out we've all been on high alert. The government has not been perfect in its response but I am glad they have started to take things seriously. On March 9th when news of 2 patients testing positive for COVID-19 all classes were cancelled. It's nearing the end of the schoolyear here and thankfully my daughters are young enough to not be too affected by this (5 and 3). We got their school books from the Friday before and I've been able to give them something to do while waiting this whole thing out. We're currently on Enhanced Community Quarantine meaning no school, non-essential work, all malls are closed (except for supermarkets and pharmacies), no mass gatherings - church was even cancelled and most parishes live-streamed Sunday service. No one in or out of the Metro area without proper cause. There's checkpoints and guards asking what you're doing out and about. Honestly I'm more afraid for other countries that haven't yet taken the threat of this virus seriously. Seeing posts and photos of people still gathering en masse is worrisome. I've been an introvert all my life so hanging out at home doing whatever is basically what I do best. The kids are being entertained with printed worksheets and a ton of toys I've been hiding for them to slowly start playing with. It's basically a stay-at-home vacation for them at this point. Thankfully there has not been much panic buying (and no one is hoarding toilet paper!) but I am worried that supply chains will be crippled due to the mass quarantine. Also there's news that there have been cases of Bird Flu again to add to the virus. Honestly I wish I were a kid again where I didn't have to worry about such things. Here I am at home with young kids and elderly parents and I'm just trying not to lose my mind worrying if things will get better or be alright. Funny side note though, I had to argue with my parents last week to specifically not go out anymore due to the virus. The tables have definitely turned from me being the defiant teenage daughter to now having to tell my parents they're not allowed to leave the house. Silver linings, I guess.

    I am always amazed by Neopet players that are such amazing moms! @Mouseykins You are a wonder to behold! Your power, strength, and nurturing heart has me appreciating what all the moms are doing for their kids in this surreal event. Thank you for sharing your experiences, both @Hanso and @epona1 , I am glad that you are keeping calm and busy when things seem very unsure and not right. It makes me feel like I'm not alone, trying to move forward with my 'studies' online and just hoping that I will be able to start college in the Fall, God-willing. I have been the typical teenager, sleeping & playing Overwatch, and yes-lots of YouTube. My mom has only been going out to her Well Deserved Wellness visits to her chiropractor since our car accident in Feb. (on the 27th, no serious injuries but the airbags didn't deploy and we got banged up a bit). I go with my mom to do shopping so that I can reach things for her and make sure that she is ok (sometimes ppl like to make crazy comments but so far nothing more than "Shout Outs" from their cars, maybe bc we were driving my older sister's car that contain bumper stickers: Black Lives Matter; Friends Don't Let Friends Vote Republican; etc.). Honestly, it's just good to get out and walk around, so I don't mind. We're scheduled for some rain this week or else I'd be working on the yards. I am thankful that we don't need much and can just take it easy & dad still can go into work in his Lab making computer parts & circuits. I can't imagine how this affecting other families that are not able to go to their jobs and will not be having their salaries coming to them for this shut down. I hope more ppl will share their stories, their frustrations and silver linings, anything they need to vent or would like to share. It makes me feel that I'm not alone just to read Dawn's bittersweet moment of seeing the birthday card for her daughter that touches your heart that how the young children's lives are being changed by this and not being able to do what we normally do-have a child's birthday shared by more than her immediate family. Again, very glad that you shared these glimpses of your changed lives-thank you!

    I think you misunderstood that post. When I said I had been a lurker and shy about posting I meant back in 2013 when I 1st joining TDN's forums. After I had been a member for a long while I posted regularly and then changes where made on TDN and my account got lost so I couldn't post. I kept getting messages saying to create an account when I would try to respond or post. I did not want to start over as a new member since my status was Super Member. and I was a regular poster. I sent several messages to moderators trying to recover my account. I was finally directed to someone that was able to help me and reinstate my account!. I was very grateful for that. That's when I posted the message that I was back and happy to be back. I had been away for several months and missed everyone. All is right and good now though I just wouldn't want to go through that again.

    Leave it to Jumpstart to ruin the most simple yet rewarding event in Neopets history They've owned the site for 6 years and they still don't know how inflation works. It's just sad seeing so many people getting quests that ask for 900k+ items. So far the faeries have been nice to me, but my luck is bound to run out at some point, I just know it. Oh well, until then, I'm gonna try and enjoy this event. It's always been one of my favourites, as it's the perfect time to do some power training!

    Wow I just checked the SSW and this item has went up in price! Now the lowest price is 189,999 NP As I see others post the items they need for the quests I've been checking to see if I have that item in my SDB and if not and it doesn't cost too much I buy 1 so I have it in case I'm asked for the same item. Of course, no guarantee I will be asked for the same items as everyone else but I am trying to be as prepared as possible. Jelly, thanks for all your help today. I hope I get the quest for this item too, I like it a lot. So far I got a wig and and arch. I like the wig but not so fond of the arch. Boy am I happy I am a part of this wonderful group of people! I don't feel like a member I feel more like a part of a family. It doesn't matter what topic I want to comment on or ask for help on there's always a brother or sister to help me out.

    Happy Uni Day!

    The horn on the Mosaic Uni is really annoying to me I want to believe it's a fluke , but Uni colors and horns have always been inconsistent for example Snow has a normal horn instead of snow one and the Grey isn't all grey so is Halloween a missed opportunity to make a firey horn ! but Biscuit is the worst Toy is only slightly changed color also Island Elderly Boy is so different from Elderly Girl however all have matching horns so as much I want to think it's a fluke that they'll fix , im not really sure they ever will .. but maybe if we all voiced our opinion like with the Transparent Peophin ....

    Happy Uni Day!

    Is me disappointed? No. Do I have questions? Yes. Color I absolutely love those tones Like people mentioned, the eyes are looking weird. I'm sure that contacts such as Stormy Ombre Contacts (NC) will work on fixing it but as usual, NP customizers don't have many options. Another thing that I'd like to mention is the horn. I have no idea why it isn't mosaic as well... I mean, even the mane is mosaic so why not make the horn too? ? It's upsetting. For the fun, I've tried Looks nice?! ? Outfit Is incredibly cute! LOVE IT! The wig is cute but, obviously, no idea why it doesn't cover the mane. It makes no sense at all. ? I would add a bit more volume of hair though, would look waaaay better. It seems flat.

    Happy Uni Day!

    The Mosaic Uni looks like a pi帽ata, or like this, but with a horn (and, maybe, more "upbeat"): I think it is the eyes. I do like the outfit. The wig needs a little help, as you can see the pink mane popping out, here and there, but it doesn't look too bad. And the clothes fit the body.
