  1. I found this....very interesting and may be a reasoning to this entire year.......what you all think?
  2. Here's one: Cornrows as 'cultural appropriation"?? No. Cornrows hair braiding cannot be claimed by any one culture. It's been around for about 3500 years, since the stone age, featured in rock carvings. Vestal Virgins in Rome wore their hair with them. Some Native American Tribes used them. They were the fashion off and on in Medieval European society. Polynesia. Japan. Parts of South America. Just about every culture in the world at some point, used cornrow techniques in their traditional styles. So, if you like cornrow style hair braiding, do it. Not "cultural appropriation".
  3. Whew. Got my two eggies, warmed them, and bred all my Valentines with my CB Golds, Silvers, and Guardians of Nature. Played the game. Now just sit back and wait for hatching!! Thanks TJ!
  4. Kindness is always a good thing!❤️ Thank you.
  5. Guys, I am having a bit of a crisis. In Aug. I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I have been in and out of the hosp several times since then. Finally got a full hysterectomy September 23. I have been home a week now, and still struggling to heal. I won't know if I am cancer free for a long time yet. I had lost my husband to pneumonia this last Dec. so this year has been especially hard. Now, I am facing being evicted because with all the medical bills, I am short on my rent this month. I really could use just a little help from some kind people. I have a small Facebook fund set up. It's not even for all that much. If anyone wants to help, pm me and I will give you the link. Please...even the cost of a burger lunch or something, if you can spare it? Please pm me.
  6. Ok. I first saw the original Broadway musical of Cats in high school, during the 80's when it was brand spanking new. I fell in love with the whole concept, which is not about individual cats, but rather, different TYPES of cats and their personalities. And the love, grief, and life that goes on. Allegory for human existence and hope for the future. It really moved me. Since then I've seen various examples and interpretations of the play from various student and professional troups, and they all are meaningful to me in some way. I will confess a fondness for the 1997 film of the play, but only because unlike seeing it live on stage, it gets up close and you can see the actual interactions of all the players, those in the background as well as the foreground, and it fleshes out the stories more intimately. And I confess I love the way Ken Page does Deuteronomy, Jacob Brent as young Mistoffelees, Ellen Page as Grizzabella, and of course, no one oozes sex and self love like John Partridges' RumTumTugger better. My most recent experience was just this last June (2019) at the Pantages in Hollywood, CA. It was the place I also saw it the first time back in 1981. And it was a slightly different interpretation, like they all are, but it still moved me and left me high on positivity for days afterward. I've also read several fanfics (the GOOD, well-written ones) and one writer cracked me up with her portrayal of Tug as an older bro to a younger Mistoffelees, who was finally old enough this year to join in the ball as an active participant. And was nervous about his first "mating dance'. So he goes to his older bro Tug for advice. I died laughing. Can you just imagine Tug giving sex advice to a young newly adult Misto? "....ok bro, lemmie tell you how to get with the ladies..." About peed my pants laughing. Gentle shy Misto of course decides to go his own way about it, and it ends up very sweet. Good story. About the movie...I am open to it. I've seen many many different styles this play has been done in. They've all had their own flavor, but the heart of the story has always remained. For me, as long as the heart, and soul and portrayal is the same, I am interested in seeing this interpretation. I will not let my mind be clouded with previous expectations, from previous stagings, but rather, welcome the potential of this new innovation. After all, that is what this play is all about, you know. We will see. I won't make any judgements till I've seen it. Now, I'd rather this thread was not about the movie as opposed to the play, but more of the story itself, and what you all think of it. Thoughts?
  7. Ha Ha, whoever put my eggs in NG, jokes on you. I check every day, caught that early, and they are hatching fine. Nyah nyah!! 😛😛
  8. It really isn't rocket science. When you get an egg, fog it and wait til it's at 4 days (er status). Then unfog it, throw it into 4-5 hatcheries, making sure to click BOTH the regular and er buttons, if they have them. Boom! Your egg will hatch within a day. Then fog it again til it reaches 4 days. Unfog, throw it into the same hatcheries, then boom again! It will mature, and grow up within a day. I do that with all my eggs, and have not lost one EVER!! Seriously, NEVER!
  9. I wouldn't call it dull colored at all, it's a very pretty light blue. The egg is nice too.
  10. I have not been around much over the last year, just for the monthly eggs....I seem to recall some kind of discussion about switching genders on a dragon? I would love to change one of my male hollys to a female so I can breed them. Otherwise, I'm going to try to get another holly to influence female and just ditch one of my males. Any thing like that lately?
  11. If anyone didn't get any Halloween Dragons, I have four to give away either by ones or pairs, free. Just pm me. I'd prefer if those who do NOT have ANY ask for them, thank you.
  12. I will have two pairs, or four individual new eggs to give away free after cooldown, for any who cannot get one. FYI.
  13. Thank you TJ and spriters. TJ, PLEASE, can you make them drop continuously? Please?
  14. TJ, PLEASE DROP THEM CONTINUOUSLY!!! WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY, AND THESE AREN'T LIMITED!!! PLEASE????
  15. Wish they'd drop continuously....seeing as we ONLY have 1 day......
  16. No to either, but I believe it came out in the '90's.
  17. I love the song "I'll Be There" by the Escape Club. It was used as the theme song for a "teen angel" type movie, where a guy comes back to earth years after dying to save his daughter. I have tried to research this, but cannot find the name of the movie. Anyone know?
  18. I have every treat and every Easter egg that has come out during the years. Check out my sig for links to see all sprites.
  19. Well, got all 49 treats....unless there are some surprise extras? Anyone know? TJ did that one year, now I keep an eye out for it. So is 49 the final number of treats?
  20. So, what is this 'windy' egg? I got some, but I thought the black ones were with the glassy this drop?? Which I can't find any of.
  21. Just got back from Disneyland. Having argument with friend.
  22. So, does anyone have more than 54 yet?
  23. In case anyone wants to follow this, TJ has replied. A Really Good Prank, or a Glitch?
