Weird Spam Comments and a Calendar Update!

Hey Jammers! Right now it is Saturday, and yesterday was Friday the 13th. I'm probably not going to post this on Saturday, though. So happy Wednesday or whenever I decide to finish this! How did you spend Friday the 13th? Hopefully not getting murdered in the woods. My brother was actually born on Friday the 13th, and he's gonna turn 10 in January so my family thinks it's a lucky day. (Yikes, the terrible Paris attacks happened on Friday the 13th. I didn't know that when I wrote that part of the post. I'm sorry!) I was born on Saturday the 10th of August 2002! How about you? Anyway, I wanted to make this post because I have gotten a TON of comments since my last Ask:Reply, which was only a month ago. So here we go, let's jump right into another...
All righty roo, whose comment shall I read first? There are 16 new ones since October 5th, which is incredible! Thank you guys so much for commenting, it means a lot to me! I think our first comment comes from Harmonypurr9, because she is great and tells me things that I did not know about Animal Jam. At least I think it's a she. I'm sorry if I got it wrong, Harmonypurr! Anyway, here is her comment.
It is?! Vhat? I eez Dracula? Vhat vhat vhat? I have no idea what I'm saying! But yeah, the tutorial thing is just gone.
It was just like NOPE! TOO COLD HERE! I'm packing my bags and MOVING TO FLORIDA! HA HA! Speaking of Florida and hot places...
Fun fun fun! Darn, I wrote that "fun fun fun" on Saturday, and now it's Tuesday. So I can't have fun with my buddies on a slide. MY LIFE IS RUINED! Okay, I'm over it, onto the next comment!
Woooah, so many emoticons! Although a lot of them are repeated. I can use those for Emoticon Friday, thanks! Also, welcome to AJP, Emma Dub. I have never seen you before you left that comment. Anyway, onto the next comment.
Now here's a question! It is called Ask:Reply after all. Oh, I'm sorry, that sounded mean. Y'all who aren't asking questions, you're fine too! This one was left on one of my older posts, Tutus and Beta Days in April 2014. Now to answer it: tutus are not beta. Your brother is wrong. They came out in early April 2014, which was 3 and a half years after beta ended. I mean, there was a Rae Item Monday version, but not beta. Hope I could help! Alright, here's our next comment.
Um, excuse me? What the absolute crap was that? These comments were both on my post I made in July about Purple Puffball, so is it just a weird spam magnet? Sara Health Care, you didn't even finish your sentence! What spam ad campaign are you even from, cause there were about 3 in that sentence. And Megan Calista, just what.... I bet all of those are spam links. I deleted both of these comments, but if this ever happens again, DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS! They are hackers and they will infect your computer. This has happened twice before, and they were both in the month of May. The first one was when I was on the bus on the way up to French camp (I take French at my school, and there's a sleepaway camp that you can go to to learn more about French) and this weird comment popped up in the email on my phone! And I was like what?! Who the heck is Sigmar Kanalatrar or whatever? But then we arrived at camp, and they took away my phone for the whole 5 days that we were there. So sorry there was a spam comment on here for a long time. The it happened again later in the month, but I deleted it immediately. Okay, thanks for reading that whole book of a paragraph, onto the next comment!
Cool! French fries are delish. No, I have not heard of Raising Cane's but that's probably because I don't eat chicken. Yum indeed! Oh and happy birthday!! Sorry I didn't reply to you on your actual birthday. Hope you had a great one! Oh by the way, your profile picture is awesome! It's an arctic fox, correct?
Oh darn. We seem to be at our maximum of 5 comments, which is what I normally do. But you know what, I'm in a good mood today so I'm going to answer 7 comments! Let's see, are there any more questions? Yes there are!
Yes I do, what an odd question. Oh, isn't that from that one song? By that one guy? I'm being totally easy to understand! But I think it is a song. It is a song!
I do like waffles by the way. But I like pancakes better. Okay, onto the last comment of the day! It comes from Anonymous! (Okay, I know they put their name in the actual comment, but it says that their name is Anonymous, so WHATEVER!)
All right! I will check out your den! And thanks for leaving that comment, because usually I choose the Epic Den of the Month on the 1st of the month, but I forgot. SO thank you for reminding me! I have a waiting list of dens that I want to check out, but it's not too long right now so if you would like your den up there, just leave a comment! Uh uh! Yeah! Answered 9 comments but 2 of them were weird spam comments! Okay I will stop. Now, an update on my calendar! So, as you might know, I am releasing a 2016 calendar filled with AJP drawings. And I'm already on April! But I am pushing back the release date a bit because I  will not be able to finish it by this Friday. So next Friday you can buy your AJP calendars for next year. Also, I'm giving a rare item to each person that buys a calendar, so there's that too. But of course you don't have to buy one. O-kay, now for our Memeotheday!
Mmhmm. My friend was absent from school for a week and we all greeted her like "WHERE WERE YOU" instead of "Oh, you're back!" Friendship is a weird but good thing. Anyway, I hope you liked this post! I will see you next time, baiiiii :3

Saxophones and Polar Bears and Neros's Bad Mistake

I am trying to get the music fixed, I'm very sorry it doesn't work. Whenever I try to save it, it says the complete opposite of that, which is "You have unsaved changes." It's very frustrating, so I'm sorry you have no music to listen to while you surf AJP.

Hey Jammers! So I posted a post last Friday, but I really didn't think it was enough. The scroll bar was really big, and that means there isn't much content in a post. But I just figured it was because I didn't add very many images, and those take up more space than words. (as I said at the end of the post.) But yesterday, I was thinking about it, and I was like DUH! I FORGOT THE JAMAA JOURNAL! Jeez, Neros, you've been blogging for 3 years now. Did you seriously forget the Jamaa Journal when you talked about an Animal Jam update?! So if you were thinking, "Well, Neros probably didn't have much time, so that's why she didn't talk about the Jamaa Journal when she talked about the rest of the update." But NOPE!! I was just a stupe. Okay, enough blabbering,onto the first page!
Hmm, we had this last year, did we not? I actually didn't play it last year so I'm going to now! Now, is it a Thanksgiving themed one, or just a fall themed one, or what...
Yep, it's a fall one! Nice! Aww, and the koala has a little farmer hat! Cool! So, by the looks of it, it's a fall maze game. There are small hay bales blocking off the path (which doesn't male much sense. Animals could just jump or crawl over the hay bales in real life, but we have to stay on the path!) But there's a twist, you have to find a colored key and go open the treasure chest of that color. Isn't that cool?
By the way, the keys and the treasure chests are so far away, it took me like 10 minutes to match up the red key and treasure chest. So let's see what's in this oh-so-special treasure chest!
Gems. It's gems. Well I certainly don't need a lot of those!
I know you're all gonna say "Neros what the heck why are those two zeroes there MY LIFE IS ENDING" and all I can say is, I don't really know either! It started about a year ago, and I'm just used to it now. It's only on my computer though, not my account which is very strange. Anyway, onto the second page of the Jamaa Journal!
Cool, some more clothes! FUN FUN FUN! That doesn't affect me though because my clothing inventory is not filled up yet.
Yikes, that image was set to "Small" and it's that large? Jeez! Well anyway, enjoy your 300 clothing items, guys! That will be a good thing for those super-rare Jammers with 12 spike collars and stuff. OFF-TOPIC TIME! Man, AJ is addicting. It's not that exciting right now, and there's not much going on, but if I go off of it for 2 weeks or something I'm going to miss a jillion things. You can't just leave temporarily, if you really want to leave AJ you have to be off for good. Right now I just wanna play Flash games! Sorry, that sounded whiny. Okay, off-topic time is done, onto the next page of the Jamaa Journal!
Oh, it is arctic foxes! That's what everyone thought originally. Except me, I thought it was a fish, so don't count me in your surveys. Anyway, there's a cute new video about the arctic foxes!
It is adorbs. I think the arctic foxes look like a mix between the arctic wolves, foxes, and the raccoons even. See?
That face shape is the same one the raccoons have! So I think these are not reeeeally a new character, just kind of a mumble jumble of other animal models. Oh well, they're working on developing Play Wild so I'd assume they don't have as much time to design new animals. Either way, they're really cute so I think I'm gonna buy one when they come out! Okay, next page!
Woah, more space stuff! They released a bunch of space stuff in March or April or something. But this one is an entire SHOP! Nice! So where is this thing? Is it in with the games shop? Nah. Is it... could it be that big thing covered with a sheet?
IT IS! HOLY WOW!! This arcade came to AJ on February 2nd, 2012 and that sheet has been over it ever since. So now we finally get to see what's underneath! One of AJ's mysteries solved! So let's see what's in this long-awaited store.
Ooh! These items are nice! I love that galaxy painting, it's really pretty. You know what? Imma splurge and get it for my den. Inventory now full? Don't even care. I'm gonna buy this painting and no one's going to stop me.
See? It fits in nicely with the rest of my den! I'M SUCH A REBEL! I don't know what I'm doing XD Speaking of new Animal Jam stores, there's one in Kimbara Outback! And you know what else is in Kimbara Outback? A new polar bear exhibit! I don't know why the polar bear exhibit is in Australia, that makes no sense but whatever!
Aww, look at that mother and baby polar bear! They're so cute! I think it's great that the developers of Animal Jam do these animal rescue exhibits in their game. It's a great way to let people know that you can help save animals! One way you can help save animals and save a lot of calories is by not eating meat, by the way. Speaking of polar bears, the last page of the JJ is just another ad for the new paid-for-only polar bears. You've already seen it, I'm not going take a screenshot of it. Another thing I missed in my last post was, Friday was a guy named Adolphe Sax's birthday. The only way I knew about that was through their Google Doodle. He invented the saxophone, by the way. Here's what he looks like:
He's a pretty cool dude. He invented the saxophone and a bunch of other instruments related to a saxophone. (Hence his name.) But before he invented the saxophone, a ton of terrible crazy things happened to him! Just read this Tumblr post...
Yeesh. TIME TRAVELERS, WRONG ADOLPH! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO KILL HITLER, NOT REPEATEDLY INJURE THIS GUY! I love that comment down at the bottom, "clearly someone didn't want that saxophone invented". True. The only answer to this is either the time travelers got the wrong Adolph, the time travelers hated saxophones, or this guy just had really bad luck. I think the last one is probably true. But it doesn't matter, because accrding to Google, he lived for over 700 years!
Yep, he was born in the year 1184 and died in 1894! That's totally right! Wow, Google, you're really teaching us things. But anyway, I just thought those 2 things about him were funny so I wanted to share them with you. Happy 6-day late birthday, Adolphe Sax! All righty roo, now it's time for the RIM because I started this post on Monday. Sunday, actually, I just haven't had a lot of time to finish it. So here's the Rare Patched Hat:
Hmm! I like the colors! It's not my favorite RIM, but it's all right. I didn't buy it though. OKAY NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOME SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION! Another one of my Running with Scissors comic strips came out on Tuesday, so go to runningwithscissors.cfw.me to see that! (Hint: it's about squirrels.) I also put up a banner for it on the right side of AJP. There's so much stuff on the right side and not as much on the left! I'm sorry left sidebar, you're new to me! (I changed the layout from one sidebar to two sidebars in a post called Mucho Grande Blog Updatio!) So anyway. Oh, I almost forgot! Here's our Memeotaday!
XD Oh, this is so me! My brother is the Lego person of our family. I usually give up because I want to go read or post on my blog or something. Also because they hurt my fingers. I'm such a wimp. Anyway, I hope you guys liked this post, if you did leave a comment! I need them for my Readin' Yo Comments series. See you next time! :D

Thanksgiving and 50,000 views!!

Friday, 7:28 AM
Hey Jammers! HAPPY FRIDAY! Wooper wooper, wooperdoo! WE haven't had Emoticon Friday in FOREVER so I'm definitely going to try to finish this post on Friday. (Sometimes I start posts and then don't finish them until the next day.) But this edition of Emoticon Friday is very special, you'll see why. Anyway, I have a very exciting announcement for you all.... AJP HAS OVER 50,000 VIEWS!!
 WOAH! THAT'S INCREDIBLE!! I feel like we just got to 40,000! You guys are amazing, thank you so much. In the beginning of the year we were only at early  20,000 or something. So we have DOUBLED the pageviews on here in less than a year! (It's only November 6th!) Wow. You guys are amazing. I can't say thank you enough. 50,000 dance!
WOOP WOOP RAISE THE ROOF! All righty roo, now onto some Animal Jam. It got a Thanksgiving update! If you haven't logged on to AJ yesterday or today, you're gonna want to see this! Or not. I have no idea if you want to see it or not. But there's some new loading screens that are very pretty, in my opinion!
I like the ones of the animals at a Thanksgiving table! I also like the one of the panda sliding down the hay, that's really cute too. Wow, Animal Jam has really changed their loading screens recently! Here is a brief history of the loading screens of the past.

2010 and 2011- yellow background with a spinning globe
Early 2012- Underwater scene with 2 octopuses
Summer 2012- Green background with an elephant and a bunny having a tea party
October 2012- Scaary Halloween loading screens featuring all 6 of the shamans.
July 2014- A summery loading screen of the Summer Carnival.
December 2014- A wintery loading screen with animals having a snowball fight (My personal favorite!)
February 2015- a Valentine's Day loading screen with owls
April 2015- Another cute loading screen with a fox, a gecko and some flowers
June 2015- Another summery loading screen of animals playing the games at the Summer Carnival
October 2015- Halloween loading screen!
November 2015- Thanksgiving/fall loading screen!

So there you go. But seriously, there were no new loading screens in 2013, and five this year! And there might be a new one for winter in December! That's crazy. Okay, that's enough of that. You know what time it is!

It's Emoticon Friday! YEAH! But this is a special one because it's EMOTICON FRIDAY'S FIRST ANNIVERSARY! There has been 52 Fridays since I started it, and I posted on 13 of those Fridays. I consider that an achievement! So in honor of its first anniversary, I give you 10 new emoticons. Not 5, but 10. And this one includes emoticons that take up more than one line and faces!

1. =:D Guy with a mohawk
2. =^.^= Either a blushing person or a Japanese cat.
3.  =:V Talking guy with a mohawk
4. =>:( Angry guy with a mohawk
5. U>U I don't know, some person
      U
6. II A surprised person
    O
7. := The Grim Reaper
8. ಠ_ಠ Face #1: Angry guy
9. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ Face #2: Koala face
10.  ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º) Face #3: I don't know what this is, but it's famous on the internet.

I hope you liked that extra-special Emoticon Friday! Here's to another year of ridiculous text-emojis! But first, I have a CRAZY ANNOUNCEMENT....
YEP THAT'S A CALENDAR PAGE. And I made it! I am making my own 2016 calendar with 10 of your favorite pictures from 2015 (I set up a poll for it in August) and 2 COMPLETELY NEW pictures that I have drawn! You will see them if you buy the calendar. They will go on sale on November 20th for $5.99 (which is the price of an AJ membership for 1 month) and for each person that buys it, I will give them a rare item from my inventory! (Not to brag, but I've got a lot to give.) And I will also give them a shoutout on AJP! Of course you don't have to buy one, but I would love you forever if you did. (Plus you get a rare item and a shoutout on AJP, so it's a pretty sweet deal.) Anyway, they go on sale November 20th again, so if you want one, you can buy it then. (They're great Christmas gifts!) Okay, enough product placement. It's time for old Memeotheday!

Ha! Ha ha. True. That's me every Sunday night. I love Bert's angry expression as he's just like "OH NO." Well, since this post is short, here's another meme.
This is really well timed! And funny! I'm 13 not 21, so I don't really get drunk jokes that often. But this one is funny. Anyway, I hope you like this post! It has the same amount of writing as my other posts, but there's less pictures so that makes it seem like it's shorter. Do you like my turkey potato background? I think it's just hilarious! How about you? Okay, well bye see you next time!!

Happy Late Halloween from AJP! (ft. Barking Giraffes)

Hey Jammers! Happy Halloweeen! I know, it's not Halloween, it's November 2nd. I'm sorry I didn't get to posting yesterday or the day before, I was busy with Halloween and chores. But you know what I did get done over the weekend? The AJP Email List. It had spoopy jokes, spoopy items, spoopy news, and even a spoopy poem! Everything spoopy! That word probably looks weird now that you read it 5 times. Soooorry... But anyway, I was really proud of it! I hope the 14 of you that got it enjoyed that issue! (if you didn't get it, you can sign up with the button to the right of this post.) Anyway, back to business. Today is Monday and that means 2 things here on AJP: Rare Item Monday and a new Running With Scissors! (In case you didn't know, that's my comic. Running With Scissors, not Rare Item Monday.) Here is today's issue of my comic:
OKAY OKAY I'M SORRY ABOUT ALL THE PRODUCT PLACEMENT DON'T THROW THINGS AT ME Now onto our second Monday tradition, Rare Item MondaY! Let's see, what is today's... ooh! These are pretty swagalicious!
I love those purple laces! My shoes are purple! What color are your shoes? i will demonstrate what mine look like:
Pretty nifty, huh? Yippe yi yay! On a charred stick with some mushrooms and goat spleens! Oh dear, that got weird reeeeal fast. But anyway, I like these shoes! They're funkylicious! They got swagger up and down the street! WOO! Okay, now for the thing you've all been waiting for. Or maybe not. Maybe you have no idea what I'm about to say. But if you read my last post, you do know what I'm going to say! I don't know what I'm saying. Let's get started before I make people mad!
I know what you're thinking: HOLY WOW WHAT IS THAT NEROS Yep, I created a Halloween version of my original Mailtime logo! And I did it by inverting the colors and coloring the letters orange. Yep, that's literally it. And guess what? I made it in April! I think ahead, baby! (I already have the Valentine's Day potato background for next year.) Anyway, thank you to the 8 people that sent me Jam-a-Grams in the last 4 days. That's really nice of you! Here is the first one:
Oh boy. Heeeere we go with the weirdness. I asked for it I guess... I just thought this was ridiculous, but it could mean "Want to be my girlfriend?" in which case the answer wold be NO. Still, I asked this person "What?" and they responded with:
People in Animal Jam are SO WEIRD! But entertaining. Please go take your barking giraffes and pizza out of my Jam-a-Grams, merci beaucipop! Okay, the next one comes from a very nice person who comments on AJP a lot.
Yes, I do remember you elizaboo! You are really great! Aww, thank you for saying that I'm the best. That really made my day. It's really crazy that I'm just a 13 year old girl sitting at a computer blogging about Animal Jam, I'm not some famous YouTuber who has 10 million subscribers or something and people still comment things like that! So thank you elizaboo and everyone else who reads my blog, thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Yes I agree, I think potatoes are much better than tomatoes. You can do so much with them! Let's see, there's fried potatoes, baked potatoes, roasted, mashed, scalloped, potato soup, potato salad, potato chips, french fries...the list goes on and on! You know what else goes on? This Mailtime! (Greeeat segue Neros.) Here's the next Jam-a-Gram!
Oh, thank you so much N2thetalkingcat2! (Wow, what a name!) You didn't have to send me a gift, in fact I said not to but that's totally fine. You get an A+! Happy Halloween to you, too. So, what did you send me?
Ooh, brown and yellow gazelle horns! Thanks! I wonder when this was the RIM. Probably sometime in October, and I just missed it because I can never post on a Monday or a Friday. I don't know why. Anyway, thank you for the Halloween present, now on to our fourth Jam-a-Gram!
Yes it diddly does, catdog347! This isn't much of a Jam-a-Gram. but it's the thought that counts. I have a challenge for you... count how many phantoms are in that image, NOW! You have 5 seconds!

5..4..3..2..1..stop! There are 7 phantoms in that Jam-a-Gram.
Did you be like Pokemon and catch 'em all? Yes? Well good for you! Okee dokee, on to the next and last Jam-a-GrOH NOOOOOO
SO MANY BUDDY REQUESTS! I'm sorry, if I accepted them all I would have like 350 buddies. And there's only room for 100. So my rule is, if I don't know you, I can't make room for you on my buddy list, I'm sorry. But if you are one of my internet friends or someone who likes my blog, then sure! I'll make room for you! But as you can see, I can't make room for everyone. Okay, NOW onto the last Jam-a-Gram. This one is from one of my internet friends named numnum13!
Thanks! But which den? I have a lot...
Well, I'm currently in my Epic Haunted Manor, so I will assume she's talking about that. But wait, her Jam-a-Gram is not the Halloween one, and the Halloween Jam-a-Gram came out the same day as the Haunted Manor. So it must not be the Haunted Manor! The one I had before the Haunted Manor was my Small House, so it must be that one! Eureka! (And that, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of overthinking something.) Anyway, thanks for saying that, numnum13! Well, that does it for my Halloween Mailtime. I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks again to the people that sent me Jam-a-Grams, without you I couldn't have done this edition of Mailtime! And as always, if you want to get featured on here, just send a Jam-a-Gram to neros1234 and I'll feature you. Okay, now for our Meme o' ta Day.
No way, there was a yellow object in the sky?! This is news to me! Hope you got a good laugh out of that meme. But that does it for this post! Hope you liked it! If you did, leave a comment, I enjoy reading your comments! If any of you have a blog (Animal Jam or otherwise)that you've started, leave a link to it in the comments and I'll check it out! I'm always looking for new blogs to read. Okay, bye! See ya next time!

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?
