  1. I did something Stufftacularly stupid

    Just so we're clear, I don't feel like I was tricked in any way, and don't mean to complain about the event. This event isn't new, and has always worked the same way (as far as I can remember). As I said before, I'm not a fan of the event because of the format and theme, but I don't object to its existence. It seems a lot of people are satisfied with it, and most people are aware of the risks; same thing with the mystery capsules you guys mentioned. I for one, always buy a full pack for Haunted Hijinks as soon as the event begins, even though I could wait to see what the prizes are going to be. But I love Halloween so much that I don't even feel like I'm risking anything; for every meh prize, there's going to be several others I like, and by participating everyday, I get a bonus. So I guess people who love Christmas probably see SS the same way. The only reason this happened is because I had an impulsive derp moment... Otherwise, I would have remembered to ignore this event, just like I do every year. So, the point of this thread was to vent about my mistake, and ask for advice on how to make the best of this situation.
  2. Welcome to December and Advent Calendar Begins!

    Maybe it was only a Christmas truce, like in WWI? I'd rather see it that way, lol
  3. I did something Stufftacularly stupid

    Thanks guys! I'm feeling a lot better about this situation. Last night someone here kindly surprised me with a gift - the wig!!! @kayahtik @Mouseykins @rntracy1 It does seem like the last days would be my best bet, so I think I will hang mine there! Because I'm a dumdum lol There is! I could actually get something I really love. But I might also hang my stockings on certain days, and then find out that the things I would have liked the most were in different stockings. I just hope that even if I get stuff that I don't like (which is quite likely to happen, since these are Holiday themed prizes), that they will be at least nice enough to trade. If they're junk, everyone will have them UFT and virtually no one will be seeking them. lol thanks! At first the title was just going to be "I did something stupid", but then I figured I should make it sound less serious (and somehow more on-topic)
  4. I apologise in advance for making this topic, but I really need to vent Anyway, I never participate in Stocking Stufftacular for two reasons: I dislike Christmas and I dislike the event format (having to blindly choose your prize before it's released). But I decided I really liked today's item (it's a nice wig and it's not in-your-face Christmas-y) so I brilliantly FORGOT how this event worked, and rushed to the mall to buy a 5-pack. I thought, "Hey, I might like other prizes, so the 5-pack is a better deal. And if I don't, I'll just try to pick out the most decent stuff to keep as trading fodder". But buying the 5-pack wasn't the worst part... The worst part was only realising my mistake after activating it. So now I have no wig and I can't even trade this stupid pack, I have to use it. I have to hang 5 stockings without having any idea of what's going to be in them. So I might get something like... gloves. Or an awkward handheld, or just beautifully designed items like: Ugh. I know it's no one's fault but my own, but I just wanted to let it out. I suppose I also want to know if anyone has a strategy for this event, or do you go completely random? I'm thinking about hanging 5 in a row in the 3rd or last week, because there's a bonus for hanging 5 in a row plus there's a gift box for hanging one on December 19th or 30th (like there was today).

  6. Enter The Runway #50!

    Ah it's not biggy. I like what I submitted but I was just torn between these two customs haha. I'm sure it'll be fine :) Just so everyone knows, you're allowed to change your entry whether I've seen it or not, as long as you do so within the entering period (in this case, by Dec. 10th)! But of course, you're always welcome to share your other options in The Backstage topic, as @kayahtik mentioned I also wanted to let you guys know that the Holiday Decorated Money Tree background is getting a bit popular this round, so if this is something that bothers you, you might want to avoid it. If not, don't worry; using the same background as someone else is by no means against the rules!
  7. Enter The Runway #50!

    I *personally* think converteds would be more interesting, however, I will be allowing UCs!
  8. Welcome to December and Advent Calendar Begins!

    What? Where did you see this? This seems very unlikely, but if it's true... h'oh boy, board 7 is going to get awfully more dramatic lol
  9. Caption Contest #1405

    I can imagine this round will be more competitive, considering the changes to the CC's schedule and also the fact that it's December. Good luck to anyone entering! I like this image

  12. Painkillers taking a dangerous step backwards?

    I have zero experience in medicating children, but having been a difficult child myself, I'm not shocked by this. My mom complains to this day about how hard it was to give me medicine (either pills or liquid). I absolutely hated the liquids because of the taste, and when it came to pills, I was scared of swallowing them. I'd tell my mom "I don't know how", and she'd spank me because she thought I was being sassy (I swear I wasn't, I really didn't know how I could swallow something without chewing - I wasn't very bright). And I know some kids might love these flavoured meds, but to kids who are like I used to be, it doesn't make a huge difference. The flavours don't actually make them anywhere near enjoyable. I remember that sometimes when I'd refuse to take medicine, my mom would say "this one doesn't even taste that bad, it's cherry flavoured", and I'd be like, "LIES!!!"
