  1. I'm not sure if Sandrea has read certain books on the list as she's read books totaling in the thousands, but if she can't read the books, one of my other pets could. I'll send a snowflake for books and cheese in a few minutes.
  2. I really, really, really miss the Neopian Times. I wish they would update it. I enjoyed reading it every Friday.
  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

  4. I've won the Neocash prize twice, but I usually win nothing at the game. :)
  5. I think this dress is ugly, and frankly, I'm tired of seeing it everywhere, but for the record, I see it as a sort of periwinkle blue and ruddish gold/brown mix. :/
  6. Thanks guys! I sure will share my luck. I've continued to be lucky over the weekend. We've had horrible winter weather and several huge tree limbs have fallen in my yard. I'm talking at least eight or more. One barely missed the electricity meter, and another was caught by the back porch, which prevented it from destroying my bedroom window. None of the limbs hit the house and none of the pipes have burst and me and the pets are okay despite it being single digit temperatures outside, with only two small electric heaters in the house. We've camped out in my room and things have been cold but fine. Jerkface (my brother) surprised me on Valentine's Day with a nice dinner out, which I enjoyed. So that counts as being lucky too, I suppose. The photoshoot I won was taken today instead of tomorrow because of the coming winter weather, and that was fun. My brother actually showed up, and we got a picture together. I've also got to spend a lot more time with my neighbors/good friends/family. My luck hasn't ran out yet! :)
  7. THERE'S ANOTHER FRIDAY THE 13TH? Yay! Should I tempt fate and play the lotto next month? LOL. Shoot, even if I win the money back that I paid for the ticket, I'd be happy. But if I did win 10 bucks or more, I'm treating myself to an early birthday dinner.
  8. Sure thing! *sends luck via rainbows and sparkles* It couldn't have come at a better time. Next month is my birthday, and I could use some fun until then. Nothing like a concert and a movie to cheer me up! And that giant photograph, if only I can have a grrrreat skin day next week! D: :)
  9. Being a winner? Usually when I tell people Friday the 13th is a lucky day for me, they shrug it off. They believe the superstitions that Friday the 13th is cursed. Bah. There's no real such thing as curses. Anyway. Today, I'm Charlie Sheen. I'm a winner. My best (female human) friend is also my neighbor. She apparently entered my name into this random contest drawing at this fancy portrait studio without me knowing. The drawing was an event celebrating the photo studio's 20th anniversary in business. My friend came by and gave me my mail, and inside was a card with my name on it that said "Congratulations, your name has been picked to win the GRAND prize." So next Friday, I have to go to this hotel to a fancy photoshoot. My whole family can come with me. My grand prize is a giant 16 x 20 keepsake photograph worth 100 dollars US. I get one for free. :D How lucky is that? To make things even better, I log onto Facebook, and another close friend of mine has sent me a message. She said she won 2 tickets to a blues concert in a nearby town from a radio station, but that she can't go and she wants to give them to me. ME. I'm sad she can't go, but out of all the people she knows, she chose me to receive the tickets! And because one of my goals this year was to donate blood as many times as I can, I went into the local blood bank to donate. (I can potentially save 3 lives with each donation! You can too, just check out your local blood bank for more information.) Walked out of there with a gift of two free movie theater tickets. What? Usually I get a spiffy new t-shirt. But today, there were no more t-shirts, and I got the only pair of movie tickets they had at the time. What a surprise. As I said, Friday the 13th is my lucky day. Look out Charlie Sheen. Today, I'm the winner. I'm really happy. <3
  10. Aww, I'm excited for you, and a bit jealous too! I've never been overseas, but it sounds like you have a huge trip full of fun ahead of you! Stay safe and have a great time! (And bring us lots of pictures, lol!) <3
  11. Happy birthday! I hope you have an amazing day! You deserve it!
  12. There's a lot of good advice on this post, Naamah. A lot of advice that I myself agree with. I understand how you feel about the clothes and fashion. I have trouble finding clothes that fit me because not only have I been on a bunch of meds in my day, I don't necessarily have the best diet, and I also retain water, so I am a big gal, but over the years, I've learned that beautiful isn't a specific size. There's more to a person than their weight and appearance. I've also learned that a person cannot ever be ugly without first having an ugly attitude and an ugly heart. Sending you love, hun! <3
  13. I agree with everyone else also. A professional could really help you overcome this funk, but just remember, whatever you are facing, you CAN overcome it. It just takes time, patience, and confidence that you can. I send you love and best of luck in your situation, hun. :)
  14. Naamah dear, you have the same thing I have. It's an actual medical condition called "hyperhidrosis" and it sucks big time. Pretty much, it means that we sweat twice as much as a normal person and anything can trigger it, stress, hormone imbalance, or even our "nature" as far as body temperature is concerned. I am very hot in nature, who loves spicy foods, who also has pagophagia (constantly craving ice and cold things) and I sweat all the time, which is unfortunate because when I sweat, I feel gross. I have to shower more often and wash clothes more often than others. People like us are more nervous and uncomfortable, which makes us sweat even more! Sometimes, the sweating is caused by a secondary condition, and you can ask your doctor to perform a starch iodine test in order to find and diagnose that. Your doctor may ask you other questions like where you sweat the most, and when. They may ask you if you sweat more when you think of certain things like a traumatizing event or something. They may even ask you if you have other symptoms such as weight loss or weight gain, fever, lack of appetite, clammy hands, or even a pounding heartbeat. Excessive sweating can occur without triggers. Persons with hyperhidrosis appear to have overactive sweat glands. The uncontrollable sweating can lead to significant discomfort, both physical and emotional. However, hyperhidrosis can be treated. I know you said the clinical stuff doesn't work on you. It doesn't work much for me either, but there are medications your doctor can prescribe to treat it. With treatment, hyperhidrosis can be well managed. Staying active (even though you sweat a lot) is still a healthy habit to have. Don't let it bring you down. Just think of it like I do. You're hotter than anyone else. (Literally!) That's why people like us sweat so much, because our bodies are trying to cool down. Unfortunately, the biggest downside of having hyperhidrosis is the massive amount of water we lose through our sweating, so definitely have your doctors keep tabs on your blood work. Make it a point to drink extra water to make up for what you lose day to day because dehydration is no fun. I've been there. I know how you feel as far as not feeling girly, but you can only do so much. You're human. You can't help it. It's definitely hard not to feel feminine when you feel dirty and gross, but like I said, treatments are available for us. Get some advice from your local dermatologist and see what they have to say. By the way, have you tried adding baby powder or corn starch to your deodorant? Maybe that would help. As for the pit stains on clothes... mine are notorious for having them, but here are a few things you could try to get rid of the stains in the wash; a mixture of ammonia and water, baking soda, aspirin and water, lemon juice, unseasoned meat tenderizer, or an oxygen bleach. Some of these things listed sound weird to put on stains, but the reason is because some of these things listed contain alkalines and enzymes that break down the mineral deposits that form the stain on your clothes from your deodorant. (It's a chemistry thing really.) Hopefully these things can help you out, hun. Don't give up! <3
  15. That's true, they generally are. The TC I'm trying to get into is only 30 miles or so away from me. I don't live in Cali though, I'm in South Carolina.
