  1. Exactly. I want so badly to snuggle them, but I know that doing so would ruin any progress we've made in the past few days. They do seem just slightly happier today. I also should note that they're about ten months old, and were fostered by a lady for a while. So, I'm not getting them fresh off the boat, if you will. They were named by either the network or the foster, but we decided to keep their names.
  2. This past Saturday, my boyfriend and I brought home some real life pets: two brother cats named Captain and Jack. They are rescues that were found in a boat in someone's backyard, hence their cute nautical/piratey names. They are gorgeous-- one is completely gray, the other is gray and white. I'm excited, but feeling the blues about the whole acclimation process. Mostly the uncertainty of it. It's only been about two and a half days, but I really hope they adjust well and begin to see us as friends rather than creeps encroaching upon their unfamiliar territory. I've never adopted a cat before. Last summer I had to make the difficult choice to put down my childhood cat of 15 years, who developed an aggressive tumor. I finally decided I was ready for kitties again. This is a totally new experience for me, because the only cats I've had were family pets that I grew up with. Send good vibes our way! I know the process tends to take at least 1-2 weeks, but often longer. I just want them to love us!
  3. Nay for Jury Duty

    Yeah, maybe you won't get selected! Last year I was a "reserve juror" and basically had to just be available in case they needed more people. I wasn't needed, and now they can't bother me for another few years. Good luck! *Edit: Just saw how old this post is. So, I hope that if you did get picked, that it wasn't too horrible/inconvenient!
  4. Honestly not a paisley fan either. The disco PB doesn't look too bad on him, but I don't think I'd ever do it. Eventide actually looks pretty far-out too, and works for this look as well.
  5. Agreed... Interestingly, I went ahead and looked at glasses options for NC items, none really worked as well as these. I like my Lenny as rainbow for now, but Disco works much better for making the glasses pop out more and for the overall vibe. Still slightly awkward-- the way they sit makes it look like a hippie monocle. The stars can't always align perfectly, I suppose.
  6. @rntracy1 Yeah, I know :( I was stuck on wanting to give him a jacket, and I also limited myself to neopoint items. That one seemed the most rock star hippie, but I see what you mean. I had hoped there was a denim jacket, but alas. Maybe this is better, haha.
  7. Here you go, @Angeló! Had to go with hippie, "bed-in" era John. I'll keep him as Bob Ross for a while, but will definitely do this ensemble!
  8. I have no idea why I haven't tried that, but challenge accepted! John had so many different looks, so I think it's definitely doable. Also, thanks for all the love, everyone!
  9. Ah, silly me. Well, I'll believe I won the "Entire Universe," then.
  10. My Bob Ross-lookin' Lenny won first place in the neopoints Customization Spotlight! Man, I feel like I've really made it. My geek heart is bursting. My boyfriend looked at me like I was crazy, but I knew you guys would understand. Today I went to enter my neopets in the Customization Spotlight (as I do sometimes on an arbitrary basis), and it told me I couldn't enter my Lenny because he had won within the past 2 months. *Huh?!* I thought. I checked the results, and lo and behold. They didn't send me a Neomail notification about it, and I have no idea how much I won, but I'm jazzed! The little fellow is even in the news. Yippee!
  11. The Backstage: Alternative Entries!

    Yeah, the Shoyru just felt right for him, hehe. I also considered having him hold Doc's letter, as you did!
  12. The Backstage: Alternative Entries!

    Here was my other time traveler for #52. I tried to do Marty, but I couldn't get him right. For such an iconic character, there were pretty few items I found that really fit with him. No skateboard, no sports almanac-looking booklet, etc.
  13. The Runway Votes #52

    Noice-- thanks guys! I, too, thought there would be more Docs and Martys. Shows what I know.
  14. Enter The Runway #51!

    These are so terrific, and I appreciate the sense of fun and community here. Why haven't I started entering these sooner?
