My FAQ ~
I suppose you're here to learn more about little ole me... I can't fathom why, as I'm really quite ordinary and boring. But
since you're here, I'll tell you a little about myself and what I
like to do on neopets.
My biggest love of neopets is all of the wonderful people whom
I've met here over the years. Whether it's random, silly
conversations, cheering each other on toward neo goals, or
supporting each other through difficult times in our own little ways
that we're able, some of the people I've met here have become very
near and dear friends whom I cherish and appreciate to the fullest.
I've been playing this site for quite a while now, and have gone
through phases ranging from very intense serious playing in order to
reach a certain goal, to casual visiting for goofing off and chatting to lighten my mood, to having it take the back seat to 3-D life
priorities and missing even dailies for weeks at a time.
But when I am being goal oriented here my goals tend to be focused
around my collections. I have put a lot of hard work & thought
into my pets, avatars, gallery, and my newest craze:
stamp albums, and am very proud of them all.
Life Beyond Neo?
Yes, actually! I do live quite an active life outside
of neo. I am an adult professional with a real career, a real
life, many friends, a great family, and many off-site hobbies.
I regularly enjoy many things out side of neo including:
cooking gourmet meals, anything music related, dancing, concerts,
theme parties, the chargers, reading, dieting, working out,
sushi, costume contests, shoes and purses and 'the perfect pair of
jeans', kitty cats and animals in general (except for snakes
and lizards "EWWW"!), being told i talk like a valley girl by people
from out of state, thai food, the beach, random conversations with
strangers, hypnotic poison perfume , things that are dark,
things that are pink and fuzzy, etc....
Favorite Things in Neopia:
Here are few of my favorite items in Neopia (because
they're either sweet, pretty or they make me giggle) as well as some
other things I enjoy or just randomly like.
Least Favorite Things in Neopia:
I have a strong loathing for many of these things for
various reasons, and others just annoy me.
Don't hate me, i'm just an innocent little
~ How did you get so many avatars? (You're so lucky.)
~ Quite simply put: Through hard work and extreme dedication.
The toughest ones for me had to have been the game avatars. If
you check the end of my list, the last few that I've gotten were
obtained through about a year of regularly practicing, watching
gradual improvement, and making a final full-out attempt which
usually consists of a weekend long binge of playing OCD style until
I finally got it. I've thrown a few mice, beaten up on my keyboard, yelled out loud at my computer
monitor, and walked away in fits of frustration during these binge
attempts.... so no, I'm not "lucky". I am quite confident that
I sufficiently suffered enough to have fully earned each and every one of
~ Will you get _____ avatar for me?
~ No. That would be cheating, and I've no interest
taking the risk of sending all of my hard work and dedication to iceland just so that I can get you something that you are not willing
to work for. Quite simply: if you want it, then work at it
until you get it. I've heard ALL of the arguments of why
you "can't" get a certain game avatar or earn a certain amount of
neopoints, having made quite a few of those same arguments myself at
some point. Half of my game avatars used to be under my
"these games are impossible for me" list. It boils down to:
If you want it bad enough, you will get it (see my answer to the above
The real question is whether you're willing to
do what it takes to get it. And if you're not willing then I'd actually prefer
that you not have it. Call me mean, but I worked exceptionally
hard for it so I think that everyone else should too.
~ Will you ___(insert rule breaking thing here)___?
~ No. I work for what I have, and don't intend to belittle or
risk that hard work by cheating, nor do I wish to compromise my own
personal integrity. Yes it is a game, but I firmly believe that how
you behave in the game does reflect the kind of person you are in
real life. If you ask me to engage in cheating with you, I'll
report you - friend or not. I'm not and have no desire
to be friends with cheaters.
~ Can I be your neofriend?
~ Each and every person on my NF list is someone with whom i have some kind of bond or history with. Whether they're my best neofriend guild mate whom i've known for ages, or someone whom i bumped into during trading and we shared a giggle together over something silly... it is comprised of people whom i keep in touch with on this site (although some not as frequently as i should i know). If this is you, please do send a request
(or neomail me if they're blocked)! I'm so absent minded with these things, it's likely that i think you're already on there. If your NF request is the first i've
heard of you, I will decline your request. If something on my account piques your interest and you feel like you want to get to know me, feel free to send me a neomail.
~ Why did you send me a ________?
~ Probably because I thought it was funny... most likely a a play on words or an ongoing joke from a board we were both on... or something i noticed on your account... or maybe i just thought it would be amusing to throw a bunch of eyeballs at random people from the boards. I have a strange sense of humour, i admit it... but i do so enjoy using it. Afterall, the whole point of this site really is to have fun, isn't it?
~ You are so rich, can you give me a ______?
~ I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but i am far from rich. I spend all the neopoints that i make just as fast as i can make them.
Having a gallery of items that is never complete, good neofriends to lavish gifts upon, a warped sense of humour that involves sending out random items to ppl
(regardless of the cost if it's a funny enough joke), a bad
habit of LOSING NP while attempting to restock, and supporting an out of control stamp addiction is not cheap you
know! Even if I were rich, I wouldn't give to beggars. They
irritate me to the max. I've said it before and I'll say it
again: If you want it, earn it. Plain and simple.
~ Why do you play neopets? Isn't 7 years a long time from your life to be playing a game?
~ Quite simply, because i love it! I find it fun, and relaxing and just the right amount of silly to distract me from the stresses of my everyday life... and it has fun goals that appeal to me with just the right amount of challenge to keep it interesting. And over these years I've made quite a few friends here, and they are what truly keep me coming back.
~ Don't you think it's strange to have "friends" on a pet site?
~ At first, maybe i did a bit. But now my hands down favorite thing about this site are the people i've met and the friendships i've formed. From random silliness like throwing fish or other silly objects around the boards, to cheering eachother on in our neogoals, to banding together to help a mutual friend through a hard time in their life by providing cheer or distraction or loving encouragement or ~the sky is the limit here really, I've seen some incredibly touching and unbeleivably kind acts... The people here are just as real to me as those whom I see face-to-face every day.
~ You are always online_ Do you live in neopia?
~ I WISH i lived in neopia! are you kidding? my pets eat and play and live much better than I do! Not to mention the free omelettes and being able to earn a living by playing games!
I do spend a lot of time here, i'll admit it. It's a guilty pleasure of mine. Most of the time i spend here is in short spurts "between" things. I will pop into charter boards or play a game or two while on breaks at work (or while stuck on the phone with a boring customer who drones on and on)... while dinner is cooking, before i head out, after i get home before bed, etc.... so if it seems like i'm always here it's probably because i'm on several times throughout the day - not usually straight through. Some days/weeks/months i'm on more than others... it depends on my schedule and my mood. There are definitely the days where i would rather spend an evening home alone playing on neo and unwinding/relaxing to going out with my friends and doing something active or some big production, but then i go days at a time without even logging in to do my dailies. Neo fits nicely into the gaps left by my 3-D life, and not the other way around.
~ Aren't you too old to be playing neopets? Get off of neopets and get a real life!
Wait... neopets is not a real life? T_T Bangkokk will be so sad!
I will never be too old for neopets, are you mad? The older and more responsible I get the more i need things like neo to balance that out. if i ever stop playing (*shudder*) it will be because something changes to make it unpleasant for me (heaven forbid!)... not because of my age. And yes, I do live a very active "real life" outside of neo. I have a sucessful career, lots of bills, a great family, many friends, hobbies, bad habits, social life, real pets, roomate drama, plans and goals, failures, victories, labours, vacations and the works. Neopets is my preferred way to relax and unwind from the whirlwind that goes on in my life.
~ What are you the most proud of on Neo?
~ I'm proud of my pets of course ~ Bangkokk being my first ever, I'm proud of my account age (yeah big deal, right? but hey at the rate ppl get iced around here i think it's an accomplishment to hold onto an account for so long). I'm very proud of my avatar count - and you should know that each and every game avatar i own (especially the bottom few rows of my list) were a battle of epic proportions for me and probably consisted of hours and hours and hours of OCD gaming interrupted by fits or anger, frustration or whining to the neofriends. I'm also very proud of my rockstar gallery. I personally think it's a very cool and original theme... and cannot fathom why it has not yet won the gallery spotlight
~ actually, now it has -
~ Why the Rock n Roll Theme? Obsessed with Rock Much? Is it because of Guitar Hero?
~ Hahahah no actually, not the biggest Rock fan ever... and I am faaaar from being a rocker chick! I look more like a business woman or a surfer girl (i live in california yes, their is a similarity here) than a rocker! I do listen to some rock... but mostly the hair bands of the 80's... If i currently have a rock n roll theme up, it's in celebration of my gallery. The gallery itself was inspired after a very fun weekend at the NAMM convention (north american music merchants) where all of the professional/aspiring/has-been musicians and music-related business converge to do business and to play afterwards. No i'm not a professional musician, i was there completely recreationally. And if you've never been to one, let me just tell you that the phrase 'party like a rockstar' was born with good reason
My Avatar Status:
As of 07/03/09 - my game avatars are DONE! Hooray! (note: we are counting
LuckyStreak as a random when we say this)
only 5 more avatars to go until I have the MOST in neopia!
But then, look at the slim pickins I've got left:
These RANDOM Avatars are driving me crazy!
These two I actually am gradually working towards, but am
still a long ways off.
Maybe these shall be mine someday as well:
Maybe by some insanely well-timed stroke of luck?
Let's just say I'm not holding my breath:
I'll let you know when I figure it out. (Actually, on second thought: no i won't haha):
Avatars I Have Already Gotten (Yaaaaay!)
