I’m house sitting for my parents this weekend, and there was nothing on the other night except a marathon of Storage Wars. ‘What the hell,’ I thought, ‘it’s something to watch.’
IT’S SO DAMN ADDICTING. I watched it from, like, 11 PM to 4 AM, and then watched 7 more episodes On Demand.
Now I’m watching more online.
IDEK, guys, but damn it’s fun to watch, especially when I’m having a bit of insomnia.
Darrell is such a doofus, but he’s good at what he does. Barry cracks me up, I’m always wondering what he’ll show up driving next. Jarrod and Brandi are basically what my parents would be like if they did this for a living. I don’t like Dave too much, but I don’t hate him, either. Why is everyone such a dick to Mark? Did I miss something? I don’t really care either way for Nabila, but man does she look like Callie Thorne.
ETA: If this is about Neopets, then I’m not butthurt at all. The Sway won, congrats! I figured they or the Thieves would just because they were so popular. I’m a little annoyed over things, yes, but who wouldn’t be if they lost? I’m not raging about it or yelling at people or causing problems for TNT or what have you. I’m a little upset, I’ll get over it, life will go on. It’s not a big deal.
ETA2: Perhaps my wording in my last reblog wasn’t as clear as it should have been.
I’m not saying TNT picked the winner beforehand. I’m saying the most popular faction would have had a significant statistical advantage. When everyone was pretty much signed up, it was going to be obvious which teams were the most popular. The most popular factions would then be much more likely to win. If the Sway had 200,000 members, the Thieves Guild 150,000, and the other factions <100,000, the Sway and the TG would be much more likely to win if we’re saying that the winner was chosen by the players’ total battles. More members, more battles.
So… yeah. IDK, this long wait for the war prizes have just left me feeling bleh, I guess. They weren’t bad, and I guess there’s another round of something coming up after the truce? IDK.
I’m still just bummed I did so poorly, I guess.
I’m going to go watch Dancing with the Stars with Stevie Wonder performing, maybe that’ll cheer me up.
Are people seriously saying that The Sway was prechosen by tnt as a winner? This is the most legendary case of SORE LOSER I have ever seen.
I don’t think they chose a specific faction to win specifically, I just think it was much more likely for the Sway to win simply because they were very popular, much like the Thieves Guild is. It was unlikely that the other factions would come even close, except maybe for the Order of the Red Erisim. TNT likely realized this, so in a way the outcome was predicted, but just by statistics.
Yay, war prizes. I only had around 82,000 points, which I thought was not bad being it’s my first major plot and I never was into the battledome prior. I then see people getting like 600,000 points and I feel like a loser. =/ Like I should have been much more into the battledome and it’s my own fault I didn’t do well, which it is. I didn’t train my pets when everyone was saying to because I didn’t think the plot would be so battledome-centric. Oh, well, next time.
I’m bummed that the Seekers didn’t win, but let’s face, it was either going to be the Sway or the Thieves Guild, there was no doubt. I thought about joining TG, but I really liked the Seekers and thought they reflected me better. I hated the Sway. Not those that joined, just the general feel of the faction itself.
I also dislike the fact that all members of the Sway automatically get another avatar and theme just because they were on the winning team. Why couldn’t it have been something buyable with their points so those that actually did the plot could then achieve it? It wouldn’t even have to be that high of a cost, just say 10,000 points for both. IDK.
I just got two wearables and a plushie, since that was all I could afford.
New Tyrannia is beautiful. Great work, TNT artists!
So I changed my mind and decided I’m going to keep my Lutari. I think I’ll eventually paint him Disco, but for now he’ll stay blue.
Here he is, promoting Macklemore’s thrift shop philosophy. (Actually it’s just mostly stuff I already had in my closet that was NP and not NC, so that I could just send ‘em on over without boxes.)
I imagine him being a hippie party surfer dude that’s actually really intelligent, but just enjoys having a good time. And he’s not obnoxious like a frat boy stereotype, either. He’s chill, bit of a beach bum, but good-hearted and super friendly and always there for everyone. I guess since the other four are siblings, he’s basically cousin Des. Yeah, that works.
Thoughts, suggestions? What do you think?
So my fake nails lasted until today. They would have lasted longer, if it wasn’t for the fact that I have to help move furniture later. I lost one in the shower anyhow and then another fell off shortly afterwards. Bah. I kept them, minus the lost one, and I might put them back on tomorrow. Give my nails a breather for a little while.
So I went and created a Lutari on a whim today. He’s on my side account that I created and never used. And now I’m regretting it a bit because I forgot you can’t pound or transfer them. And I don’t know what to use my side account for at all, which is why I’ve never used it. What do all of you do with them?
I guess I can get a cheap morphing potion like Ogrin and then pound or transfer him later. I don’t have access to the lab ray. He’s got a good name, Destakai, which means something like “joyful sea”, so I’m hoping he’ll get adopted.
I dreamt that TNT finally posted the Obelisk War results and such, so I guess I was annoyed when it wasn’t true. I remembered it was Lutari Day and thought, hell with it, I’ll create one on that side account I created a year or so ago and never used. And then reality smacked me in the face. Never have I been so glad they’re a bunch of pixels and not real pets. I don’t think I’d ever do that with a real pet, considering how guilty I feel with virtual pets, but still, I know people do and I just acted like that and I feel awful. =/
If anyone is interested him, let me know!
I’ve been a nailbiter since childhood, and since around Christmas, I’ve been trying to break the habit. *high-fives you in solidarity* Not sure mine are long enough to put on fake nails just yet, but that might be a possibility.
I don’t know if I can ever fully break the habit, but I’d like to at least cut back on it a little. My nails are almost always sore and ragged-looking. I’d like to have nice nails, and I try, but then I start gnawing on them when I’m reading or watching a show and I don’t even realize it. =/
Fake nails, whoo.
It feels so bizarre. See, I usually have my nails bitten into the quick. I can’t stand longer nails on myself. Still, I’m trying to at least cut back on the habit, so thus my aunt helped me with my fake nails today. I might cut them even shorter until I further get used to them. It’s hard typing with them!
Yeah, my pinkie nail is small, but it’s like that naturally, too. My nails are odd.
The polish/lacquer is Palm Tree by L.A. Colors. It’s under the Color Craze line. This is just with one coat of color. I don’t think it liked the plastic of the nail very well, which is why it has an uneven quality to it. It’s actually a nice polish, especially for costing $1 at Family Dollar.
