Hey look! There it is in Google Images!
Sorry this post is so cryptic, I don't have enough time to write a full one. And I haven't used this background since January 2014, so I decided to use it again! Oh and by the way, we met our goal of 3,000 pageviews this month!! You guys are so amazing, thank you so much!! I will say more about it, along with a full post, tomorrow. Bai!

Smiling Sidewalks and Deconstructing Grandmas

How's it going bros my name is WHAPISH TOP OF THE MORNIN' TO YOU LADDIES! MY NAME IS Hello everybody! My name is Marksepticpie and welcome to a random youtuber mashup intro! Yeah! Sorry I should get off of YouTube. My name is actually neros1234! But you probably already know that. Anyway, do you know what day is it? It is? I have forgotten how to English? Well is it Wednesday!! It is Wednesday. Arrgh! And that means a good ol' fashioned Reading Your Comments! I think I shall have these every other Wednsday. Do you think that's a good plan? I do. Anyway, this is already off to a random and completely unrelated string of thoughts, so why don't we just dive in with the first comment already? Here we go! Oh boy!
 The first comment comes from Cutepups.
Really? Thanks a lot! I usually just yell a lot and don't really get anything done. This blog is a lot different from other blogs mostly because others stay on track and talk about something normal... I end up talking about flying lawnmowers and fighting giant monsters in the middle of a cornfield. Yeah, they are pretty crazy and random. Okay, onto the next comment! This one's from catdog347.
Oh cool! That's really interesting! Yeah, I took a break from posting in January (Don't ask me why because I don't know) and just randomly reappeared one day in early February and everyone was like "Okay! Sure! I guess?" and so we just kind of rolled with it. But thank you so much catdog, I am glad you checked back after my break!! You have commented a lot on here and that's really nice, thank you for that! Oh and yes, blogging is a word, or at least spell check seems to think so. Okay, next comment! This one's from 5yoyo5.
Same here. The old ones are so pretty and fluffalicious! Look at them!
See? I like them when they're all big and stuff and not when they're all small...and stuff! Wow, great grammar Neros! Amazing choice of words! What I meant was they're much cooler when they have their feathers spread out like a majestic eagle. Except not an eagle. A peacock. I don't know! You figure it out! Next comment.
Hmm. Not a very exciting comment. But that face looks excited! Maybe it was just on a roller coaster. Or maybe it's planning to kill someone. It kinda looks like both. So, Anonymous, why did you comment this on Emojis You Can Use on Here? Because the emojis on there are like :) 8-), not evil/excited faces made using letters, numbers and symbols. Although, I do use emojis made out of letters, numbers and symbols for Emoticon Friday! Maybe I'll use that! Anyway, that's all for this Readin' Your Comments. Sorry it was shorter this time, I usually feature 5 comments and this time it was only 4. But on with the rest of the post, today's new item is straight out of a friendly sidewalk, the Scooter!
That long spiky brown thing with wheels, not that other thing. The other thing is the Old Water Pump, released yesterday. The Scooter looks like it was carved out of wood, doesn't it? Either wood or stone. Like the Outback Imports items! Everything there is carved out of stone! WOAH! Also, "friendly sidewalk" sounds kind of weird. I didn't mean a literal sidewalk that is friendly...
I meant friendly people living on it! People with adorable young children! Who have scooters! Do you understand? Yes? Good. That water pump looks very complicated and it also looks like it will just fall apart if you crank it once. Like literally every single piece will just simultaneously explode and get lodged in somebody's eye. Well, it is old, so sometimes old things do that. I hope old people don't do that! Good god! You're just walking through the mall with your gramma and all of a sudden
Yikes. If it happened all the time,I think they would install a Deconstructing Grandparent alert. WEEOO, WEEOO, WEEOO! Um, Officer, we have another exploding grandma. Over. *kschhc* Another one?! *kschhhjk* Yeah... XD THERE'S AN EYEBALL IN THE GIFT SHOP!! I'll stop. Okay, so, I didn't actually cover the whole update last Thursday! The game profiles have changed, and the Rules button has disappeared. Below is what it was, and what it is.
Maybe that upside down exclamation point is the rules. Sky High is pretty easy to figure out, most of the games are, so if the Rules disappeared completely it wouldn't matter too much. Another update that I missed is the Bounce House gif in the daily explorer! Look at this cool thing!
It looks like it's bouncing, even though it's only one picture. That's really cool! 2015 is the bounce house year in Animal Jam, with the Bounce House Party in February (that was mentioned in the Jamaa Journal but for some reason I never saw that issue) the bounce house in the Summer Carnival in May, and now this! I guess AJHQ just really likes bounce houses. I do too, they're fun! Okay! Now onto the thing you've all been waiting for... the pageview progress for the little challenge I have up! If you don't know what I'm talking about, I have a game to try to get 3,000 pageviews by the end of the month. We are very VERY close, and in fact the pageview counter has been changing all day. Here is the updated one (I jsut took a screenshot a few minutes ago):
WE ARE SO CLOSE! 39 pageviews left, and we still have 2 days! That's crazy! I made a gif of the timelapse of the pageview number changing ever since I started this 1 week ago on July 22nd. Look how fast it went up!
It was so far behind June a week ago, and now look where it is! I bet by tomorrow we will have reached our goal. I will tell you all on Friday, and then on Saturday or Sunday we can do the unboxing of the exciting Box of Mystery!!! It's gonna be awesome, I assure you. But that's all for today's post! I hope you enjoyed it. Leave a comment if you did, and I will see you guys on Friday! Have a great day!

Puffball the Pokemon and a Stethoscope Commercial?

Hey Jammernians! What is new with you? Not a lot with me. Me and my family went to the beach yesterday, which was fun! Although it is ghastly hot here. Good lord, the temperature should be illegal... it's like 85° and it's only noon! Ugh. Anyway, there is in fact 2 new items in the Summer Carnival! Sort of.
They're returning. Now why in the name of jimbalooshi would they say "Come see all the new items!" if there's NOTHING THERE?! That makes zero sense! Gardalnit. That's a new one! I don't think I've heard that expression before. Anyway, there was a new item in the regular clothing store on Friday, and usually I don't talk about items that are a couple days old, but this one's pretty cool TOTALLY AWESOME!
LOOK AT THAT! It's called the Mad Scientist Hair, but it looks like a bad*** puffball wearing a ski mask with lightning shooting out of every spot on its puffball body! Doesn't it? It's so cool! And cute, too, and it sort of looks like a Pokemon.
WHO'S THAT POKEMON?!
IT'S PUFFBALL! Yeah! And the best part is you get to wear it on your head!
So now you can say to all your friends "I have an adorable purple puffball on my head, who's wearing a ski mask and looks like it can take on anything! What did you do today?" I love this little puffball. It looks like it could conquer the world with that ski mask! It probably can, I mean, who's gonna say no to someone like that! I think I shall stop talking about this and move on, as it is probably making lots of you angry and annoyed. NO I'M GONNA MAKE IT AJP MASCOT #3!
Sorry. It's just crazy hair made out of pixels. I gotta remember that. Anyway, if you remember in my LAST post (back in the Jurassic period am I right!)(That was a failed attempt at making fun of myself for not posting for 4 days by the way) I talked about the challenge of beating last month! Or, more specifically, getting more pageviews in July 2015 than we did in June. AND GUESS WHAT! YOU GUYS ROCKED IT! We beat our goal in less than 24 HOURS!
Currently we are beating June by 174 pageviews, and we're also beating May 2013 by about 2,500. Sorry Neros, but I think the only people looking at your blog back then were your parents.
Kawaii mom! That's not my mom by the way, I just googled random moms. Don't take that out of context and make me sound creepy! Cause I'm not! Sigh, I just know that there will be at least ONE person out there who will take that out of context just because I said it. Anyway, what were we talking about? Goodness, I get sidetracked a lot. Oh yeah, the pageviews! So, as you can see, on that beautiful graph-y drawing up there, the July 2015 marker (so nicely pointed out for you) is really close to the 3,000 line! And yep, you guessed it, I'm gonna ask you all to reach that line. A few days ago I thought it was impossible. I also thought it would take you a week to surpass June 2015. Boy, was I wrong! So I'm thinking maybe we can do this! Bring your friends! Bring your siblings! Bring your grandmas and grandpas! Wait. They probably don't play Animal Jam. And won't care about it. So don't do that. Think of this as Round 2 of the pageview game! It's not game over yet, people! We still got 5 DAYS to meet this fantastic goal! And when July is over on Saturday, if we have reached our goal, I will reward you with a FABULOUS PRIZE!

Again, not my image. Well, the original image isn't mine, I added the Box of Mystery part.
And it will be revealed sometime around August 1st. Could be August 1st, could be October 19th. You never know. I'm just kidding, it will be revealed August 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, whenever I get around to posting. Okay, well Animal Jam told us that the Jamaaliday Jam was going to be on the party list from July 24th to July 26th, and yep, that sure happened! It showed up 3 times for me on Friday night.


Wow, it was on for 3 days in a row and I didn't make it to one! Whoops. Well I'm sure it was a blast! And for very, very new Jammers, it was probably confusing. I can imagine all the people taht didn't read the Jamaa Journal, like "What?" "Its not Crhistmas!" "what is going on omg" "What is ur problem ajhq is this a glicht or what" XD Oh, how I love to make fun of people with bad grammar. Sorry, it's just funny to see people making mistakes over something so easy... I hope you're not offended. Anyway, today is Monday after all, and you know what that means! And guess what- this week's RIM is in the Medical Center AGAIN! This time it is the Rare Stethoscope.
Nice! Now you can listen to your heart and make sure you're alive. Sometimes when the animals on Animal Jam do the Sleep action you can't really tell if they're alive or dead.
I mean, it's anyone's guess if she's still alive! With the Rare Stethoscope, look no further! You can tell immediately what your heartbeat is, and if you're a healthy individual! Comes in a wide variety of colors, cyan & pink and pink & cyan! BUY YOURS TODAY!
I think I did rather good with that commercial! (Why does every RIM end up with me trying to sell it?!) What do you think? Tell me in the comments! Anyway. I think that's all for today's post! I have been typing for a long time and I should go outside. Here's a preview of what's to come in the next post!

  • Mailtime
  • Rest of update- Games update, Bouncing Bounce House gif from the DE (talk about how 2015 is the bounce house year with the bounce house party, bh in summer carnival and now this) 
Yeah, I know you can't understand that last bullet. I'm not as detailed in my reminders as I am in my posts. Well, if you'd like to see that reminder come to life in the next post, check here again in 2 days! But in the meantime...maybe leave a comment on this post? It really helps! Okay, goodbye, I'll see you next time!

Christmas in Summer and Other Updates

hEY jAMMEROS! No, I am not having a stroke! I accidentally turned on Caps Lock! I'M SORRY!  iT WON'T hAPPEN aGAIN! By the way, I'm growing cactuses in my yard! Or is it cacti? Yeah, I think that's it. The little red squiggly spell check lines aren't under "cactuses" though, so hmm. Well anyway, I didn't post yesterday on purpose because I knew that today is something special. Yes, it's Thursday and you know what that means! UPDAAAAAAAAATES!!!
Woah! That was unexpected! They just up and released a new den out of the blue! YER A WIZARD AJHQ!! Ha. "Only 5 diamonds". Yeah right! 5 diamonds is a lot for some people! And then, for people like me, who buy things like twice a year and have 52 diamonds, it's nothing. But I'm not going to buy it, so those diamonds are just kind of wasted on me. Did you get what I was saying? Probably not. It is very confusing. I am a very confusing person sometimes! Confuse, don't abuse is my motto. If I was given a sword and was told to defeat some giant monster, I would probably shout PIGLETS! and then jump into the air and disappear.

Well that was random! XD This blog is like 5% Animal Jam and about 97% random crap that I think of while writing posts. Wait, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, the Bounce House den. Silly me. Well anyway, onto the next page!
WHAT! Really?! I always thought that was a glitch! Ever since 2012, there have been random Jamaaliday Jams in the middle of the summer, and I just thought it was a mistake on their part! Guess not! This is the first time they actually acknowledged it, so I bet a lot of people also regarded it as a glitch and are finding out the truth today. THEY CANNOT KNOW THE TRUTH! THE CHRISTMAS PARTIES ARE FORBIDDEN IN JULY! NO JAMAALIDAYING FOR YOU! Actually, you can do whatever you want, I'll stop shoutin'. Also, apparently in 2013 I just thought it was normal to have random Christmas parties in the middle of July.
(That was an excerpt from a post by the way, not the entire thing. I didn't write THAT short of a post back then.) Wow, I must have been a dumb child. CHRISTMAS PARTIES DON'T JUST SHOW UP IN THE MIDDLE OF JULY, 2013 NEROS! THAT'S NOT A "REGULAR THING"! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD! I am just now realizing I am screaming at my past self through a computer. Yikes. "Hey, what'd you do today?" "Oh, not much, just screamed at myself on a computer." People are gonna think that I'm some kind of weirdo freak even more than they already do! Okay, let's move on from this strange block of text onto something a little more normal. JUNGLE BELLS! JUNGLE B- Singing Jungle Bells is not normal! Sigh. (This post is just falling apart XD) Okay, onto the next page!
Wait a second. They never told us that! They never said that BotB was a temporary adventure! I don't even think there's such thing as a temporary adventure. Oh right, duh, the seasonal adventures are! But this isn't a seasonal adventure. Maybe it didn't do too well and people didn't like it or something. I thought this adventure was here to stay! That's too bad that it's leaving. Or wait! Maybe it's not leaving! They said "play it and earn all the cool rewards". Maybe just the prizes or the shop is going away? I don't know. You guys figure it out for yourselves. Anyway, I might play it once or twice if it is leaving soon, but not that much. It's not a very fun adventure to me, and it sucks that you can't save your Earth Crystals so you can go back and buy stuff later. I'm working towards getting the cheapest thing there! But I haven't played it that much, so I'm not very good at it. Anyway. Onto the next page!
Ooo! New Summer Carnival items! We need new ones in the den shop, the latest item in there is the Ring of Fire and that came out on June 7th, 1 and a half months ago! Anyway, let's go there and check out the new items.


UM.
What the heck! There are no new items there! In any of the shops!
Oh yeah! All the memes were had that day! But seriously, what happened?! There are three shops, and not a single new item in any of them! And there aren't any new shops! I can't believe they specifically said "Go see all the cool new items!" and we're like WAT. SOMETHING IS BROKEN. YOU TRICKED US. THAT'S NOT TRUE. WAT. And also, you know how it says Hyenas Have Left? Well...
I wouldn't be too sure of that. THE FOURTH PAGE IS A LIE! At least for the time being. Maybe they'll remove the hyenas from the shop and release some items for the Summer Carnival soon. Hopefully. That is strange that both of the articles on that page are wrong. Is that the case for you guys? Are there any items in the Summer Carnival for you? Who knows. Well anyway, onto the last page already! It seems like I just talked about the first. This issue is a bit smaller, there are only 5 pages as opposed to 6 or 7 like in other issues. So that's probably why it seems like I just started talking about it, But anyway here it is:
Ah, just a reminder of the ferrets. It's funny how on these retail gift card thingies the expiration date isn't very specific. It just says "the fall", and that could mean September, October, or November. And the last one for the Spring Bunnies was a bit more specific, but not much. It just said July, not a date in July. Technically, the Spring Bunnies could still be here because it is July! But of course they aren't. Oh, that reminds me! This blog has really been getting tons of pageviews in the last 6 months! It took a big dive in January because I wasn't posting, so there was nothing new to see, but it's been steadily rising ever since, with every month getting more pageviews than the next! It's amazing! Last month, June 2015, had the highest pageview count EVER on this blog!
And honestly, that's incredible. This blog and this community has grown so much since I started it, and that's why I think we can beat June! We only need 154 pageviews to do that, and there's still a week and a day left of July. And that might seem like a lot, but we've already gotten 84 pageviews since yesterday (I took a screenshot of the pageview count yesterday so that's how I know)! Holy cow that's amazing! Anyway, please don't think I'm a selfish pig and I'm just trying to get more views, it's not like that at all. I want it to be a game! A timed pressure test in a way! It's like in a video game, when you only have a certain amount of time to do something, but instead this is real life. So let's try to do this! Timer starts NOW! (And of course you don't have to play if you don't want to, this is just a silly thing I'm doing XD) I will tell you our score in every post for the rest of July., Let's see if we can do this! Anyway, this block of text is really big and intimidating, so I'm gonna hit Enter.

There we go! Much better! I wonder if we'll win. I hope we do! Okay, back to Animal Jam. Speaking of games, the game symbols have changed as the last update of today. See? They have cute little glowing diamond shapes around them now!
They're pretty! I like them. They're gonna take some getting used to, but I'm glad AJ updated them. The other ones had some kind of mysterious green smoke coming off of them, wonder what that was? These ones aren't really much different from the old ones, all they did was add this white border. I wonder, did they change the game emoji the Emotes list?
Nah. That one isn't the same as the game symbols. But they did make new green ones for the pet games!
Aww, they're so cute! I like these new ones. They're adorable and small! Anyway, that's all for today! Leave a comment if you enjoyed this crazy post. I will see you guys next time! Bai!

Pet Rules

Oh hey, you've made it to the bottom of the page. Well, now that you're here, it's now your responsibility to make sure the pets get fed. So:
1. Feed Pete 2 or 3 fish. DON'T FEED HIM MORE THAN THAT!! He'll fall over!
2. Over on the Fun Stuff page, feed the fishes about 15 pieces of food (5 clicks) Don't let the red one eat all the food! She's very greedy.
3. And finally, feed Rosie who is also on the Fun Stuff page. She needs about 2 apples and 1 piece of broccoli every day. She loves being brushed, so you should pet her with the brush too!

That's all! Now go feed them. THEY'RE HUNGRY. Oh, and by the way did I mention they need these daily?
