  1. 🤣 A - Don't like ANY of 'em, TOO MUCH PURPLE. B - I still like the one with the hearts topiary best, but #2 is a close second. The others are also too much of the same palette, or she's obscured by the fence. C - the fence obstruction doesn't bother me with this batch, interesting... 🤔 a lot of too much purple again with these, I like 1 or 2 best D - Definitely 4 or 8, those curtains are hideous, I DETEST items that block a great chunk of the picture, AND, leave a gap at the sides. 4, I think, the mist looks magical, and adds more contrast than the forget-me-nots. You seem to like tonal combinations far more than I do, I'm very much the opposite, as you MAY have noticed.
  2. I'm not really interested in getting one, I want the normal Money Tree stuff back. 🤣
  3. HAHAHAHA, tell me about it, I doctored your words as they do it with anything they can think of here (red velvet cake as an example, that's 100% an American cake, but it's everywhere here now) but Hallowe'en's got to be the biggest thing. In the UK Hallowe'en has always been a thing, because of those ancient Pagan roots. But trick-or-treating? Nope. That's a modern import. We also spell it with an apostrophe, at least people of my generation and older do, I'm guessing the American way will have infiltrated the Millennials and younger. But we've never really celebrated/ackowledged it much in modern times. I remember making spiral snakes out of black sugar paper to hang from the ceiling when I was in my first year of primary school, these dudes. But they never taught us WHY, it was just Hallowe'en so this is what you did... I've no idea why we call the stuff we used sugar paper, pretty sure it's what's called construction paper in the US, but sugar paper it is! But yeah, that's my sole recollection of doing Hallowe'en stuff during my life-time! Kids NOW, I'm very sure, do the trick-or-treating thing, but this is entirely supermarket-driven. The supermarkets are forcibly changing the UK's culture solely in the name of profit. Welcome to the 21st century... The pub next door to me goes all out for Hallowe'en, decorating the front of the building and encouraging patrons to dress up. Because pubs are a dying breed in this country now, since smoking in them was banned basically, and the supermarkets (again) sell alcohol so much cheaper, so like the supermarkets other establishments use as many holidays - ours or anyone's! - as they can to drum up business. So there'll be some interesting sights out of my window in a few weekend's time. 👀 So yeah. In the UK Hallowe'en is an ancient thing that is mostly ignored by the modern population, we pay FAR more attention to Bonfire Night 5 days later. But then all kids get taught about Guy Fawkes and the gun-powder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament at school, so it's embedded in everyone's minds, and, well, there's fireworks!! Kids used to make their own "Guy" - out of sacking and stuffed with straw, a scarecrow basically - to throw on their own bonfire, and they'd wheel him around in a barrow before the day, asking "penny for the guy" to buy their own fireworks with. Our version of trick-or-treating! Candy?? Nooo, we burn an effigy on a fire! The whole guy thing doesn't really happen any more though, for all kinds of reasons, health and safety fears being foremost. Look at these cheeky monkies though with their price increase xD See the cost is 3d, so this is pre-decimalisation in 1971. I don't know why pennies then were d instead of p, so I looked it up! The pre-decimal penny (1d) was a coin worth 1/240 of a pound sterling. Its symbol was d, from the Roman denarius. Ok then, now we know! @Yuiina I LOVE your grandma analyzing everyone else's Broas. 🤣 and @midnight_spell360 another example of your mum being the bad-[word I can't say on here] ninja that she is! 😁 OH, and the dressing up thing. People here are still far more inclined to go for the spooky/creepy costume than just ANY costume. These are the costumes being sold by the supermarket I shop with. Pretty standard stuff with a slight step sideways for the dead American footballer, bit bizarre xD and the "scare queen" which is random but kinda cool. That pumpkin dress is exactly the same as that awful Frillkin Korbat Dress... But these costumes... they epitomise today's culture, don't they. Poor quality fast fashion (polyester from China) that's gonna get worn once then likely disgarded. it MIGHT be saved for younger sibs, it MIGHT go into a dress-up box (do kids still do that?) but it's all junk. Making their own costumes from old clothes would be so much fun, but I imagine there'd be the modern issue of being bullied/ridiculed for not having store-bought. : / Humans are horrible.
  4. It's THIS day again! But the Money Tree is FULL of them, which I don't remember seeing on previous years. And they don't seem to be going away?? Have things been changed? Can anyone remember from other years? I know I've only every seen one of these dudes at a time amidst all the other stuff before.
  5. A friend on the Shenkuu board leant me a dolly to play with. Something Has Happened! You are now eligible to use 'Queen Fyora' as an avatar on the NeoBoards!
  6. I like the options that don't cover her feet up. I wonder if that's part of what bothers you about certain items? Though the fence does look nice... I like the option with the butterfly flowers (I can't remember what those are called, but I particularly like the (lovely?) topiary. I like how the tallness of them acts as a frame. DTI's broken again now. The security things are happening on neo again, so figures. 😞
  7. There's conversation (complaining, natch) on Board 7 about this exact thing. It IS a problem though if a pet whose day is at a particular seasonal time ends up with a LOT of their outfits relating to that season. And, conversely, for the pets whose days fall at other times of the year, if they have very little seasonal stuff. I've just looked through the Eyrie-specific stuff on DTI, there is a fair bit of costume-y stuff, but it's not excessive. I'm gonna check out the out the Korbats and see how they fare as their day's right before Hallowe'en! ... Not bad! On the whole no excess Hallowe'en stuff There's this hideous dress and hat from 2016 Hair's the only decent part of this set. This is 2017's, not Hallowe'en-y This is last year's. Creepy costume, but separate bits useable on they own.See the habit of all the clothes being one item was going on at this point. I am VERY amused by the Horatio Caine outfit... 🤣
  8. So yesterday I got the down 2 levels zap, but that only took Cora down to Level 40 so no need to put 'em back in training, so I had a smug little laugh over that. Ray punishes me for that today... The ray is fired at my_friend_Cora... ... and he loses two levels 😞 petty, Ray, petty... 🤣
  9. I read your... I have no idea what to call that! lol - anyways.... I read it completely wrong and thought you had 90k of BB 😅 It makes me wonder just how many of some stocks some people have. The people who set themselves very high sell-points, like 100. My highest quantity is AAVL - got 56k of those. No, I lie, it's LUPE at 57k. These have been building for some ol' time then!
  10. 👀 UNIB (profile) 45 51 +6 40,000 511,000 2,040,000 +299.22% My bank balance has grown very nicely thanks to the stock market recently, and it's looking hopeful to gain a few more pounds soon. Of course because of all this my portfolio is by contrast becoming quite svelte, not such a good thing. 😅
  11. The Hallowe'en party to be talked about for decades. 😏
  12. I was excited by this round, but have yet to manage to make a start on my entry. 😰 HOPEFULLY gonna manage it today, while I'm thinking about it! EDIT! Yes! Inspiration happened!
  13. Whoa... did it actually work? Sure looks like it. Your Petpet has been transformed. Imagine that.
  14. Ooh! I'd not considered that, so I guess I'm thinking @Nielo means RL fairy tales, but if any Neo ones exist can those be included too? Can it stretch to folk tales too? Not all countries have fairy tales, as I found out from @Yuiina recently.
  15. CHIA's playing nice! CHIA (profile) 54 66 +12 30,000 315,000 1,980,000 +528.57% Nigel the Chia charges 20 NP as commission. He will be able to afford that new Ferrari soon! Summary : You had 19575 NP. After 30 successful transactions, you have 1999555. 🤨
