You are on Page 1604
The first of the month
Is eagerly awaited
As the previous game spots
Are now vacated
Yet, earning a trophy
On reset day
Requires skill and luck,
Perhaps to your dismay
With many skilled Neopians
Being top 17 is tough
Sometimes being the best
Simply isn’t enough
Since timing is everything
As those who play Splat-A-Sloth know
Many wake up at midnight
To prove that they’re a pro
Yet receiving that trophy
Is certainly worth it
As I’m sure many
Are quick to admit
It’s that feeling you get
After putting in the work
Those hours of practice
Give you reason to smirk
So, why are you reading this?
Go play a game
I hope to see in the High Score Table soon
FFQ, A Dream Come True
I asked the Help Board what they'd do
If they received an FFQ.
They all replied with different needs,
While those that had one grinned with glee!
Most people had a common goal.
They'd trade their lives, they'd trade their souls,
For avatar of Buzzin' fame.
This rare, rare avvie has acclaim!
The second thing that folks would do
Is change their favorite Neopet's hue.
They'd paint their 'pet expensively
And covet well their new dreamie!
The third thing people seemed to crave
Was painting 'pets that friends would save.
These people seemed so generous,
So sweet, polite, and courteous!
The fourth thing, I will not forget.
They'd trade their newly-painted 'pet.
With all the colors it can be,
They're bound to trade for something neat!
The fifth thing, I did not predict.
They'd save their quest for future tints.
I must admit, I love that view!
A brand new color's overdue!
And finally, some fun riff-raff
Would use their FFQ for laughs.
They'd paint their 'pet atrociously,
Like red, or blue, or even green!
The FFQ is highly sought
And using it requires some thought.
So, good luck getting one yourself.
I'd like to get one too, myself!
Sometimes You Have A Really Bad Day
I woke up bright and early,
To check upon my 'pets,
To do my daily errands
And get my daily gets.
Coltzan made my hands glow blue
A dark faerie, she cackled,
The Pteradactl bit my Eyrie
And that raised up his hackles.
The Fruit Machine gave nothing out,
My omelette, it was rotten,
The monotony wheel kept spinning on
Without a hope of stoppin'.
I traveled 'cross Neopia
From the desert to the sea,
And all the games I played
All gave 1 or 2 NP.
My 'pets all got diseases,
The Sneezles and Neopox,
No cures were at the Pharmacy
Nor my safe deposit box.
My 'pets all want new toys,
The Pant Devil stole them away,
I half-expected my house to explode,
It's been that kind of day.
I sat upon my couch,
Exhausted and a little stressed,
When my Eyrie and my Ogrin
Tried to cheer me up their best:
"Tomorrow will be better.
You'll win all kinds of things.
A coupon to the Hidden Tower
Or a brush with fairy wings?"
I laughed a bit and hugged them both,
"Now that would be phenomenal!
Quite unlikely, but in Neopia,
I guess anything is possible!"
A Grand Re-Opening -- With Coffee
The Coffee Cave's been renovated,
Or so I've just been told,
For the decor had gotten outdated.
The curtains? Tattered and old.
The paint dim on the walls
And the scuffs on the floor;
The crack in the window
And the note on the door
That the shop needed repairs
Or would have to be sold...
We were happy to wait,
Though our coffee grew cold.
The Coffee Cave's gotten a makeover,
Everything looks lovely and bright.
The Shoyru barista is busy with orders
From early morning to quite late at night.
The walls are freshly plastered,
And the wooden floor glows.
The cash register's ringing
As word of mouth grows.
And the freshly scrubbed windows
Flood the whole shop with light,
As we sit at the tables
And take in the sight.
The Coffee Cave's grand re-opening
Was quite well attended, you know.
Roo Island locals joined the celebration
As well as travelers from Moltara below;
From Terror Mountain and Shenkuu,
The Lost Desert and Brightvale,
Maraqua and Krawk Island,
Even the Haunted Woods and Meridell...
We all came to try the java.
So let the cappuccino and espresso flow!
Sit, my friends, in our new Coffee Cave;
Have a cup and we'll gossip before we go.
'Tis the month of Collecting,
Leading up to Hallows' Eve,
And for one special Shoyru
His goal is to retrieve
It's certainly his favourite month,
He invites 'round all his friends,
They design spooky costumes
And the fun never ever ends
They venture off to collect
The trinkets for their designs,
In the forests and caverns deep and dark,
Across hot deserts and lush green park
Finally exhausted, they decide to head home,
So much of Neopia had they come to roam,
They empty all their backpacks
And look at what they've got
Everything they need and more,
"Let's give it our best shot!"
They start creating clothing
Deriving from their plans
Unable to settle on one idea,
They all create a few,
Will they go as heroes
Or villains tried and true?
They make so many costumes
They lose track of the time,
They begin to name the things
They made, until it sounds like rhyme
Pirate, ghost, and zombie,
Wicked witch or Skree,
Bori, Jetsam, Symol, or how about Eyrie?
"What about Bart the apple guy?"
"No, he's way too creepy."
*yawn* Alas, the little Neopets
Grew evermore sleepy, so tired now
So tired, it must be time for bed
Then one final idea
Popped into the Shoyru's head
Let's wear each others' costumes
One for every day!
We can all be everything you see,
When we do it all this way!
Then, on Halloween, we pick our favourites
And go visit The Pound to share our candy,
I'm sure we'll collect a mound then give out
Our costumes to all that gather round
All nodded in agreement; a marvellous idea
As the time for bed drew evermore near
They grabbed some spooky story books,
Flashlights shone in all the nooks
They climbed into their beds,
Costumes still on; masks on their heads,
They barely read past the first chapter,
Before sleep had become their captor
The month of Collecting is simply the best
They all agreed, better than the rest
They had never had so much fun
Since the month of Collecting had begun
