  1. Seeking: Scenic Purple Dusk Background MME18-S2b: Gothic Spring Tree MME18-S1: Gothic Rose Dress I have a link to my trade list in my signature (although it's pretty low-value items), and I have caps for trade. NM or message here. Thanks!
  2. I've only gone and won my fourth Rainbow Fountain dip from the Grey Faerie... I'm getting tantalisingly close to hitting 10m in the bank, too. Thanks, Trudy! Things are going so well, maybe it's time to try feeding a Kadoatie.
  3. Yes! That gold trophy is still within my reach! AAA's Revenge, though... *eep*
  4. I've made a few half-hearted attempts before, but none were successful. By the time I've got anywhere, the only foods left are the impossibly expensive ones. I really want the cute trophy and the avatar, but I have no idea what I'm doing! The advice in this thread seems useful, though. Maybe it's time for another try...?
  5. I've managed to beat all four of Chadley's scores so far, so I'm feeling pretty good. Not sure whether this winning streak will continue, though...I know I suck at Barf Boat.
  6. Does anyone want to team up to beat Chadley's score? Edit: Does beating the high score on your own, instead of as part of a team, affect the trophy you receive? I'm not so crazy about the prizes that I'll be too put out if I can't find a teammate. Thank you! :)
  7. Woah. Just won a dip in the Rainbow Fountain following a Grey Faerie quest. This is the third one I've won in 15 months of playing on this account (previously won one from the Grey Faerie and one from a fortune cookie)! I must have the luckiest account in Neopia...
  8. As soon as I saw the Airborne Minitheus I knew one of my pets had to have one. Its little hat! <3 Another has a Bubblebee. IRL I love bumblebees, so this was another easy choice. And then we have Hieronimo the Halloween Harris! Like many others, I too also adore Slorgs. They always put a smile on my face!
  9. Sorry I didn't post sooner - I had no idea you'd replied! I was put off music for a long time by some poor experiences in school, but found myself becoming interested again after watching a couple of particularly good buskers. Other than that, there isn't really an interesting story behind it; I just decided to go for it one day, found a teacher and rented an instrument from a local music shop. I found my teacher on a tutoring website, but I've seen ad cards up in nearby shops, and the music shop where I got my violin had a lot of ads up too. The violin I currently play is a Stentor Student I, which costs around £110-120 (after a couple of months renting, I got a discount and ended up paying around £70, but your shop's policies may vary). It was recently restrung, which has improved the sound a lot. Personally, I wouldn't recommend trying to teach yourself an instrument like the violin, as even with a teacher I've found it so easy to get into bad habits. That said, my partner is learning to play the viola and taught himself a few scales and simple tunes before finding a teacher, and he hasn't had any problems. I guess it depends on the individual? I guess my main piece of advice would be: just do it! It'll be hard work, and frustrating for a while, but ultimately a lot of fun and totally worth the effort! Good luck!
  10. I've just sent you a card. I received a notification to say I'd been given the theme; hopefully it works for you, too!
  11. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I couldn't bring myself to give him clothes when the polka dots are so pretty. They remind me of confetti cupcake pop-tarts, of all things! I enter occasionally, when I'm feeling inspired by the theme. It's a lot of fun. :)
  12. I can certainly sympathise with you on the stage fright part. :) I've been playing violin for about two and a half years now (started when I was 25, so a little later than many!). I'm completely hooked and wanting to try piano and cello just as soon as I can afford the extra lessons.
  13. Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I used Negg Background, Negg and Flower Filled Planter, White Picket Fence of Neggs Foreground, and Polka Dot Shower (some serious NC trading coming up!). That Snowbunny hopping along the foreground is just so cute! *sends hugs* Thank you! I checked my list and I already have it ticked off, but thanks for the reminder. :) Thank you, I'm glad you like it!
  14. I've been getting into a spring mood and putting this custom together for my Polka Dot Shoyru. I'd like to know what you think and hear any suggestions. :) Thanks! EDIT: Animated version here.
  15. My account just keeps getting luckier! I won the Sinsi - Shapeshifter and Gormball - Gargarox avatars yesterday, and the Techo - Cheesy and Kiosk Wocky avatars today, and discovered some items in my SDB that I hadn't realised had become quite valuable. :D
