    Oh yeah, it glitches every time.   Annoying, but do get the neopoints and the prize.

    That will help you work through this too. This is all about learning to live with your grief rather than feeling you need to get over it. A loss like this changes you forever, but that doesn't mean you'll be sad forever; right now though it's the time for that. Your cat knows this too.

    I make quite a bit of NP from Coconut Shy, but I've also been unusually lucky.   It's distinctly a game you only game profit long term, lose a couple thousand a day, then once a month, -maybe-, win back 10,000 and an item valued a couple hundred thousand.

    I DID IT!   I GOT A COCONUT TO EXPLODE!!!

    ....and then because Chrome is stupid, it reloaded instead of taking a screenshot.  😞
     
      Still, -I- know it happened, and have the 500,000 neopoints and Scorched Evil Coconut  to prove it.

    So, going way back to my original question of how rare such explosions are?   Less than 1 in 14,000.

    Here in semi-rural Nebraska my personal life hasn't changed much.   I didn't go out a lot before, so staying home is nothing new.   I work a manufacturing job, which has put some new policies in place, but was pretty big on remaining sanitary before all this started.   My only real changes are that the local Wal-Mart has changed hours so it's not open when i get off work, need to do my shopping before or on my days off, and the local D&D group has stopped meeting for the foreseeable future.
    Local stores got wiped out of TP and sanitizer, but keep getting supplies in of most stuff, though just get wiped out again.   Have been a few crazy hoarders, but most local folks seem to be more reasonable, so can find options with only a little effort.
    Have a lot of friends in bigger towns who are having problems.   Many of them work service jobs, waiters and the like, and are basically unemployed now.   Jobs either can't or won't offer any sort of pay while shut down.    Are promises of easily accessed unemployment, but last I heard that was just talk and hadn't lead to cash in the bank as yet.

    I'm leaning towards 'lucky'.   I have had 3 in quick succession, last of a Fortune Cookie, start of a new Cookie, and one randomly gained, but that's stacking the odds in my favor.  
    All that said, refreshing a page gives a chance of a random event, including, but not limited to, a faerie quest.

    Just at the moment I'm unemployed.   I was an overnight stockman at the local grocery store, but the level of stupidity by managment got to be too much, so i quit.

    Dream job?   General operations manager of a moon based colony.   Which is far closer to a real option than it was 10 years ago.

    I work as a unit aide on the pediatric intensive care unit of a major children's hospital. A unit aide does all the things that you don't think about being done in the hospital - mainly ordering and stocking supplies and reprocessing rooms and equipment between patients; but also assisting with minor patient care tasks, bagging and removing laundry, preparing kits and stocking carts for procedures and emergencies, setting up spaces for procedures and circumstances such as infection isolation, ensuring clean laundry is folded and sufficiently stocked in the right places, general tidying up of the unit, retrieving and borrowing equipment and supplies when it's needed, organizing and maintaining family lounges and fridges, and generally just doing all of the small tasks that need to be done such as fetching water for a patient, setting up an iPad for a child to play on, bringing an extra pillow ...
    I'm lucky enough that I'm working my dream job now. I didn't have to go to school, and I love what I do! The only thing I would change is to add more hours, my position is 40% (1-2 12 shifts per week) and I'm hoping for the full time (3-4 12 hour shifts per week) so I can live comfortably.

    Current job:  Notetaker at a college for students with disabilities.

    Dream job:  Being a professional orchestral musician. 
    Realistic dream job, since I have garbage coordination   :  I'm taking an arts management course at the moment, hoping I'll be able to get a job in the offices of an orchestra (would love the local one. . .) or possibly a museum, though I'd need to brush up on my art history for that.  I also want to (eventually when I can figure funding out. . .) start a small farm focusing on raising heritage/rare breeds of sheep for wool (not meat) for hand spinners/felters and/or knitters/crocheters.  I'd also like to perhaps add some alpacas and angora rabbits to the mix.  Possibly with a side of farmhouse cheese from a heritage cow breed as well.

    I've been saving up for a meowclops for over a month. I wanted to keep the petpet as well as get the avatar, so the ALP wasn't an option. Yesterday, I spotted one while browsing the auctions that was just a tiny bit more than I had. Thankfully it was still available once I sold a nerkmid and played a bit of Ghoul Catchers. I was so excited that i was refreshing the auction page over and over, but finally it was in my inventory. I attached it for the avatar, then immediately unattached it and went to the cooking pot because at some point I had decided that what I really wanted was a slorgclops. Eventually it will be painted rainbow, but it will be a few weeks before I can afford to do that.

    Normal customer doing normal shopping I'm generally okay with.    It's the people who think we need to have the exact brand they're looking for, in the exact size they want, on sale, in the first place they look, and how dare we not know what they mean.    People who are annoying all year round, but get tn times worse at the holidays.

    After working retail for many years, I've started to really hate Christmas.   Extra work, rude customers, moronic management, and terrible terrible musak piped over the intercom system, plus rather crappy weather, all adds up to a season I'd just as soon do without.   The 24th the store is closed, so I usually sleep in, watch a movie, maybe hang out with a few friends online.   The 25th, head into work at midnight so I don't get holiday pay, and clean up for all the idiots who think they need to go shopping at 6am on the 26th.
