    What is it like where you live?

    I'm a little late to the party, but I still want to contribute, lol. @ladyblack Nice to see another fellow Brazilian here! I'm originally from São Paulo as well, but I've lived in a city that's ~1.5 hours away since I was 3 years old. I kinda like it here, because it has a lot of the benefits of a big city, without being as crazy as SP, lol. What I don't like here is the weather... it's too hot and sunny. @jellysundae The "latino" thing is kinda controversial here. As @ladyblack said, we don't refer to ourselves as such, and a lot of people are offended by it. I think there are several reasons for that, but one of them is that we are "culturally different from other South American countries". In my opinion that's a silly argument because all countries are culturally different from each other, there isn't a universal "latino culture". It seems that Spanish speaking countries in South America tend to be lumped together, and some Brazilians don't want Brazil to be lumped in with them. I suppose that wanting to be recognised for your own culture is fair, but it's not fair to reject the label merely over the assumption that we're different, while all the others are the same. As for race, I consider myself white here, but I refer to myself as White Latin American internationally. The strike seems to be over, so that's a relief! @Nielo I've never been to The Netherlands, but I lived in a city founded by Dutch immigrants here in Brazil for about 6 months So I learned a thing or two about Dutch culture, haha. I know a few children's songs like Het Regent and Toen Onze Mop Een Mopje Was, I got sweets from Zwarte Piet at school (not gonna lie, it was a bit weird lol), and I learned to eat Hagelslag (for those of you who aren't familiar, look it up. It'll change your life ). Edit: I just remembered about this video!

    Day 18 - Spellseeker

    In my case, yep, I always play with numbers! I'm surprised you feel that the symbols are easier to follow... That screenshot you posted makes my head hurt, lol. I'm not usually a fan of numbers (I'm more of a word game kind of gal), but in this case I think the numbers are more straightforward. Everyone knows 1 is followed by 2, which in turn is followed by 3. So you just go 1-2-3-2-1-2-1-2-3... Oh, and for a higher score, I always make sure to get at least one golden tile in the first level. If I don't, I restart the game. I usually score somewhere between 30k and 50k in level 1. My highest score ever was 753,900, which earned me a bronze trophy (it was one of the few trophies I earned by accident - I love this game so much! ).

    Day 6 - Snowmuncher

    @Angeló I usually don't mind when they make AAA's score somewhat low, but today I'm annoyed because whenever it's very easy to beat AAA, Abigail's prize becomes rarer (and more expensive). I want to buy the snow globe, but I'm having a bit of trouble because 1) there's another item with the same name, so that complicates the search; 2) the cheapest one I found so far was priced at 75k. Hopefully it will get cheaper? Or maybe I'll manage to snipe an underpriced one. @Duma I know, right? And if they don't want to check the database, they should at least try and add in an adjective. That would decrease the chances of repeating item names. Since the snow globe is animated, they could have named it Shiny Snowmuncher Snowglobe or Glittery Snowmuncher Snowglobe. Anyway, despite my complaints, I'm glad that there are new items for my gallery. I look forward to the DD every year because Snowmuncher is always included (I hope this never changes!)

    Day 6 - Snowmuncher

    I'm a little disappointed with the prizes... I mean, the book is nice. But what in Neopia is THIS: Ugh. This looks like some bootleg nonsense. And that's not all... The description says, "This is the Snowmunchers favourite drink. You know why." Excuse me, but who is "the Snowmuncher"? His name is Dieter The snowglobe looks alright, except... We already have an item named Snowmuncher Snowglobe

    The Runway Votes #54

    lol it's not Project Runway, it's RuPaul's Drag Race! The contestants are drag queens, and they have to complete challenges that involve creating looks, performing on stage (choreography, lip syncing, etc), among other things. At the end of each episode, the two "worst" drag queens have a lip syncing battle, and whoever wins, gets to stay on the show (that's when Ru says "shantay, you stay") and the other gets eliminated ("sashay away"). Before the lip syncing battle he says "The time has come, for you to lip sync for your life!", and that's why I used to say "The time has come for you to vote for your favourite entries!" lol

    SAME Ever since the beginning of The Runway, I've sprinkled a few references here and there... It made me so happy to see this!

    Daily Faerie Quests Are Back!

    Today's Random Events

    The Pant Devil's evil twin hands you Yellow Draik Morphing Potion, stolen from his brother. He flies away cackling madly. If I'd gotten this several years ago, I'd have literally fainted, lol. It's still very very awesome, though! That's nearly 500k that just fell on my lap

    Your Fashion Counselor!

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume you're looking for NP backgrounds: If you're going with a desert theme, I'd suggest either Beautiful Desert Oasis Background or Lost Desert Mansion Background (they each cost around 100k - I couldn't find a cheaper option). If you're painting him for the base colour, and you don't have a specific theme, you might like Idyllic Nature Scene, Mysterious Forest Clearing Background, Scenic Tyrannian Background, Romantic Sunrise Background, Gormball Field Background, Autumn Country Road Background or Altadorian Pasture Background. (The prices for these range from ~800 NP to ~8k)

    Your Fashion Counselor!

    rofl of course you were going to prefer the one with the shrubbery I think I prefer that one too... I like the pumpkins, but the yellow from the candle lights is giving it some contrast that isn't needed, like Angeló said. @hrtbrk My favourite options so far are the first one you posted (with the ombre) and the Belle one! But in case you're still looking for other options... Have you tried on Leafy Updo Wig or Cropped Auburn Locks? They're both buyable at the mall.

    Your Fashion Counselor!

    @Angeló I love that wig! It's gorgeous. Anyway, I think I prefer the first outfit. I like the crimson background and I love the black widow description (lol), but I'm not a fan of the frozen tree and the purple wings there. In case you care for more ideas, I took the liberty to play with her outfit on DTI: http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1609819 http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1609816 http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1609828 I've been meaning to post an update on Elvithia, my Darigan Ixi! It was a bit hard to choose a background, but I think I'm going with this one. I'm still having a lot of trouble deciding on a foreground though: http://impress.openneo.net/outfits/1593482 1. Black Candle and Pumpkins Foreground is a NC item (and not exactly a cheap one). 2. Rock Gate Foreground and Deep Dark Shrubbery are both NP items. The NP options have the obvious advantage of being cheaper and easier to get, but I'd like to know which one you guys think looks nicer. Like, let's pretend I have all these items, so I don't have to worry about obtaining them. Which one would you tell me to use?

    I'm scared of even wanting a UC Baby pet

    I've heard about people sending in tickets to verify the legitimacy of certain UC pets as well (in case Pound Chat isn't able to help). I personally stay away from UCs not only because of this issue, but because owning UCs is said to make hackers target your account. So if you ever get one, take extra caution with your account by regularly changing passwords, setting a PIN, etc (well, that's usually a good idea regardless of UCs, but even more important if you have them).

    So, them perks . . . what are you hoping for?

    I think anyone hoping for an un-converter or a name changer is just setting themselves up for disappointment... It would be great if I were wrong, but really, what reason do we have to expect something amazing? I think even a dip in the rainbow fountain might be too much, because people buy FQCs for that. But of course, if that does turn out to be a boon, I won't be complaining! So, I haven't thought too much about what the boons might be... I also didn't invest in this event - I just donated what I already had, so if the boons turn out to be lame, I won't be particularly upset. I did this mostly for the trophy + avatar (and the opportunity to get rid of all my r101 junk). If I were to suggest a boon, I think perhaps a dip in the fountain for petpets would be interesting... And to keep things sort of balanced, only original (non-labbed) petpets would be eligible. (I'm not actually expecting this, it's just an idea that came to me, lol)
