That’s right, today I’m going to talk about my progress on Neopets. Which hasn’t amounted to much since my last update. :X I’ve had my current account for almost two and a half years, and I’m only just now about to hit my very first million (after splurging on an Electric Paint Brush for ~450,000 NP).

I’ve discussed previously how I’ve always wanted an Island Uni (and I mean always; I think this is the third account so far I’ve tried to accomplish this with?) but I’ve never owned a full lab map either. I want both, but can only afford the lab map right now (~900,000 NP). An Island Paint Brush runs for ~4,800,000 NP and an Island Uni Morphing Potion isn’t much cheaper. *sigh*

What’s a Neopian to do? Should I splurge on the lab map and hope for the best, or keep saving for the paint brush/morphing potion? Or am I the only one here who still plays Neopets?

*crickets chirp*

…Alrighty then.

Because today is my birthday, I get the special birthday-themed Neopets site layout.

WIN! \o/

general update

Okay, I promise I have a good excuse for not posting in ages. There were some personal matters going on with The Boyfriend that required my attention, finals week kicked my butt, and of course there was that whole Rapture thing. (What, those jokes aren’t funny anymore? Oh. Uhm. *clears throat*)

HOWEVER! Here is the promised “recap post” about what I’ve been up to with most of my geeky activities I had previously blogged about.

magic: the gathering I actually haven’t played at all since January, when school started back up. :X I’ve really missed it, but seeing as I don’t have a ton of access to a car I can’t really make it to any Friday Night Magic events. Also, whenever The Boyfriend and I have been able to hang out, we’re usually studying together and trying to get homework done. So one of my summer geek goals is to get back into playing MTG, and to even attend a Friday Night Magic session.

lego harry potter: years 1-4 Another project that has fallen by the wayside due to school, but I plan on getting The Boyfriend (‘cause he’s the most fun to play it with :) over here to sit down and co-op with me so we can finish up all of the main levels, then I can focus on 100% competition after that. I’m currently on chapter 2 of Prisoner of Azkaban, which means it should only take about 1.5-2 hours of playtime to finish the rest of the game.

portal I finished it. I loved it. GLaDOS haunted my dreams and was the voice of my inner thoughts for weeks afterward. I’m not sure when I’ll be starting Portal 2, because I’d like to finish up the above projects before piling any more on myself, but I’m definitely looking forward to it whenever I do play it!

neopets Still failing at playing games, doing my dailies, and saving up those Neopoints. I might log on a little more often for the Altador Cup this summer, ‘cause Yooyuball is stupidly fun, but don’t get your hopes up. xD

etc. Harry and the Potters, as well as ALL CAPS and co., are touring this summer. I plan on attending and blogging about it afterwards, so look out for that!

Thanks for sticking with me, and here’s to a fantastically geeky summer!

In the age of iPhones, World of Warcraft and Facebook…does anyone still remember Neopets?

*crickets chirping*

Just me, then? …Okay.

I can’t even remember when I started playing Neopets. However, over the years I’ve started and quit the game with multiple accounts. I remember my first pets were an Aisha and a Poogle (back before they were uber-hard to attain). I had another account with a green Uni that I had planned to paint Island. Nearly two years ago I started a completely new account, this time with multiple pets. I still have that account, though I’ve gotten incredibly lazy with it. :X

Still, I have that same goal of attaining an Island Uni. Why? I have no idea, I just always thought it was an awesome color paired with an awesome pet. And I desperately want a Chomby. THEY ARE SO CUTES!!

I also remember being a member of the Soup Faerie Helpers guild, which was massive. The website is still up, though it’s been inactive for ages.

So, does anyone besides me still log in every now and again? And not just in December to nab some sweet Advent Calendar prizes? Tell me about your goals, the largest amount Neopoints you ever saved, your favorite pets…and if you ever achieved any of your Neopets goals! And of course, if you want to be Neofriends feel free to add me. :)
