I've now gained 8 HP from the lab for my pound adoptee. I should have waited 2 days to stop zapping Grainne.
And guess who forgot to go visit the quest page before her cookie expired to get the 8th quest? I thought I waited later in the day to open the blasted thing to be safe. Apparently not late enough. *sigh*
... And 0:10 in Food Club today. *sigh* Another day of "shouldn't have bothered playing" (except I'm finally getting to train Grainne using some of those shos and mags I've stockpiled).
ETA 11/25: Just won a Carmariller (a faerie petpet) from Tombola. Odd.
And the Food Club results came out -- no upsets, all 2:1 pirates won. Fortunately for me, most of my bets were safeties with 1-2 pirates removed, so I won 104:10 (vs. the 16:10 I'd have gotten if I'd bet on individual upsets instead... or the 144:10 I'd gotten if I'd bet on no upsets). I'm now sitting on over 1.3M in 3 days; I've got another 5 days' worth of winnings for reset day, so I'm pretty hopeful I can upgrade to gold.
ETA 11/26: Won an omelette turkey from WoMed. Couldn't find it on SW, trades, or auctions, so checked JN and discovered it's R90, released last week. So I put it up for trade and advertised it on the Neoboard. The first offer was 150k plus an adoring gift basket; she offered to beat any other offers, but I went ahead and accepted it since it seemed like a reasonable offer.
Of course, that screws up my stats for the WoMed. After 751 spins, the average net gain per spin is 452.7. If I add in the price I got for this item, the average would shoot up to 652.1. But that doesn't seem fair because TNT only releases new items rarely, and the chance that you'll get one of the first ones from the wheel is astronomically small. You're much more likely to get it from the wheel after the price has settled, so I'm going to wait and price it after a few weeks to get a "truer" sense of its value.
ETA 11/29: 11/27, I got a bronze trophy in Neopian Battlefield Legends. I only won 8:10 two days ago and nothing yesterday in Food Club, so I'm still sitting at only ~1.4M. Which isn't terrible, but it's a little disappointing since I had such a great start. Hopefully today will be better.
P.S. Someone else needs to do some gloating and/or crying here!
