Fire-Breathing Frogs In a Treehouse!

Hey Jammers! Do you know what day it is? It's LEAP DAY!! Exciting exciting. This day only comes around once every 4 years, wow. Next Leap Day I'll be a senior in highschool! And last one I was in 4th grade! So this is probably the only Leap Day on AJP. :( Anyway, I'm really excited to show the party to y'all! Although you probably have already seen it. But that's okay, I'll give you a guided tour. But not now! I have to wait 24 minutes unfortunately.
It's kind of weird how the Leap Year Parties aren't all in a row, like they were last time. On February 29th, 2012, every single party was a Leap Year Party, right from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM. That is 48 Leap Year Parties in a row!
(Picture credit to AJW)
But it's nopt like that this year, I wonder why? Anyway. Today's RIM is the Rare Sparkly Head Bow! It's a little disappointing cause I thought the RIM was going to be Leap Day-related, but whatever.
It's pretty, I guess. I think the original version was red, is that right? I'll have to look it up. But this version is pretty too, and very sparkly. I like the purplish-pink and mint green combination, it's very pretty. Okay, I have spaced out for 24 minutes and now it's time for the Leap Year Party!
This is where you first get into the party. It's very forest-y  and pretty already, but they added the Sarepia Forest music to make it even more foresty. Actually, it's not much different from anywhere else in AJ at this point. Mushrooms, trees, weeds, flowers, and grass. Lots and lots of grass. The only thing different is all the frog pets lying around.
Again, it's very nature-y and forest-y. Not much different, except even more frog pets. They're everywhere! Also, there's a well. Who was the genius who came up with that idea? There's literally a stream a foot away from it! People in this game, man... Ooh look there's a slide!! I love slides! Let's go on it!
Wheee! That was a long one. I love slides. But I like them more in real life, you know what I'm sayin'? Anyway, I was going down the slide and I saw a GIANT frog staring at me!
I was very worried, but I realized that it was just the mother of this frog.
Isn't that funny, how the party randomly generated two of the exact same frog, just different sizes?? Crazy! I also found Queen Frog's mean husband.
He doesn't have a crown, so it probably means he's been dethroned. Actually, that picture just looks like a small one that I made look bigger, so I'll do a penguin-to-frog size ratio.
See? He is big! Anyway, he used to be King Frog but he got dethroned because he was too mean to Princess Frog. He said things like "You'll never be a queen!' and "I'll steal your crown!" so he got banished to the Slime Pit, where he is to this day. Don't get too close to him, he'll be mean to you too. Anyway! I'm done creating origin stories for computer-generated frogs. Let's explore more of the party.
So, as you can see, it's in the Tree House den. It has 3 levels plus the giant slide I went on!! There are TONS of frogs everywhere, both in decoration form and pet form. They went a little crazy with the frogs and houseplants... It's like going into AmazingPhil's dream house! He loves houseplants and tree houses! Anyway, this is the first floor. Here's the other floors:
The top floor isn't too exciting, but the third floor has a lot of stuff. It has a frog rug, some awesome bench thing with a lamp,  a store and a claw machine! I'll get to the store later, but I want to talk about the claw machine now. Last time at the Leap Year Party, the claw machine dispensed lion plushies. Now, what does it dispense?
Dumb old items that no one likes. Just like the Trading Party. Man, I was all hyped to get some more lion plushies! I've been waiting 4 years for that! Now all I get is dumb things like Scary Horns, Bat Glasses, and HORNED LEG PADS. I went on a long tangent about those awful leg pads back in July.
Okay, I'll stop complaining. But really, I'm annoyed! They promised us a lion claw, and they gave us Horned Leg Pads! So there's really no use of using the claw machine unless you want yet another Wreath Necklace.
Okay, I promised I would get to the stores, so here's the stores! The first one is the den store:
As you can see, they continued the frog theme in these den decorations. Everything is frogs, frogs, frogs! (I bought all of these by the way ^U^ I'll get to that later.) I think my favorite is the frog tongue chair, but I think it would be a little gross to sit on. It's like "You're about to be digested by a frog! Here, sit on its saliva." Also, the frog TV breathes fire!
Awesome!! I want to watch the fire-breathing frog channel! Tired of frogs? Same here. Fortunately, there's a change of pace in the clothing shop, so let's go there!
Look at all of those. They are all headwear, actually. Why don't you get a little change, AJ? That's rude to all the other clothing positions! They feel left out! Look at all of them that don't get included at the Leap Year Party!
So rude. Well, let's get to the actual items! Here we have- um, something, I have no idea what it is.
They're apparently called the "Striped Epic Antlers". It looks more like some AJ artist was bored, so they drew some random squiggle and colored it in! And they're expensive, too! 950 gems for that crazy thing? No way! Actually, yes way. I already bought it. Whoops! Also, AJHQ brought back fox hats.
Yeah, it's called a "fluffy fox head" but really? It's a fox hat if I ever saw one. I wonder if people will go crazy over these like they did with regular fox hats. Probably, because later in the week, AJHQ is gonna slap a "Rare" symbol onto all of these items. That's why I bought all the den items! (I told you I would get back to it.) I also bought all the clothing items. But it was expensive, it put me 10,000 gems in the hole! But I'm pretty much rich on Animal Jam (not to brag) so it doesn't really matter anyway. Okay! That does it for our guided tour of the Leap Year Party! I hope it was fun. Did you think it was fun? I sure did. Now, here's something weird I found on the Blogger timers today.

So, Blogger lets you put in little gadgets like a timer on your blog, and it keeps track of the time and day. AJP doesn't have one, so that's wy I have to use the timers from Animal Jam Cruise Ship and Animal Jam Whip. (Go check out those blogs, they're awesome!) But anyway, it says "0 March 2016." 0 March?? Um, last time I checked, there was no 0 day! I guess that timer doesn't recognizr Leap Day, so it's like "What do WE DOOO" and panics, so it's just like "Um, it's March 0! Yeah, let's do that! It's March 0, everyone!" Oh, Blogger timers. I've got you now. I'm up to your devious tricks. So happy March 0, everyone! Alright, time for the ol' Memeoftheday!
Here is an excellent Leonardo DiCaprio meme about never winning an Oscar! But sadly, all those beautiful memes have died. Because Leo won his first Oscar last night. Let's have a moment of silence for the great memes lost.

Okay, moment of silence is up! Anyway, if you didn't know, it's a big internet joke that Leonardo DiCaprio has been nominated for an Oscar for 22 years, but never got one, and last night he finally did. I like him because he stands up for animal rights and climate change, and I think he's a good person! Although he did play someone in a movie who shoots bears, eats raw salmon, and crawls into a dead horse. So I'm not really sure about the "animal rights" part. But anyway, happy leap day everyone!!! I hope you had a good day. I did. See you next time!

Snails, Snow Castles, Car Ants and More!

Well hello there! You look like a fine young man. You also look like a fine young lady. I have no way of knowing, of course, because you are, in fact, a snail. And snails don't really have genders! Wait, do they? I have no clue. Let's look it up.
Yeah, you don't have a gender! Because you are a snail. Well anyway, you are a fine young snail! Or a fine old snail. I don't know that either, because it's hard to tell with you snails! How long do snails live? Let's look it up again.
Huh. I guess how long you live depends on your species. Man, snails are complicated! I never knew! Okay, what species of snail are you?
GOOD LORD THAT'S A LOT OF SNAILS! Well anyway, my young/old boy/girl snail, I have a post for you. And I hope I have expanded your mind with random knowledge about snails. This was all new to me, so I learned something! And I think you did too. Unless you're like a snail buff, and I don't really think those exist. But anyway! Onto our show! Let's log onto Animal Jam and see if anything is new. Maybe goats are here finally!
Yes they are! There's a ton of new stuff! But I've also got a ton of new messages. You know what, there's 4 Jam-a-Grams, there's 1 message on my Jammer Wall, that's 5 and constitutes for a good ol' Mailtime! Even though we just had one last time. Well, it will be short, and then we can get to the updates. So time for another...
See those hearts I drew? Yeah, for Valentine's Day! Even though that was last Sunday. But nevermind that! Our first Jam-a-Gram comes from Super7Sarah.
Aww, thanks! That's really nice of you! Thanks for sending me that, Super7Sarah. It really makes me happy to know that people actually enjoy the silly little things I post. Whoops, I sounded like Snowyclaw there! It really makes me happy that people actually enjoy the crazy, wacky posts I write. There we go! As a random insight, it's so nice that Animal Jam mostly filters out hate mail, so no one really gets any. Wouldn't it be not fun if everybody was yelling and bullying each other on AJ? No, that would not be fun. Anyway, Super Sarah even sent me a gift! How nice, you didn't have to do that! Here it is.
WOW! That is a really good item! Really, I'm flattered. You didn't have to do that. But thank you, so so much! Also, she sent another JAG to go along with it...
Yeah, you're not begging! See, this is the kind of thing I was talking about last time. I was getting very ragey and ranty and getting a lot like this:
But I was getting angry at the people who WERE begging to be my buddy. Super Sarah, you acknowledged my blog and wanted to buddy me as a friend and supporter of the blog, not someone who barely knows me and just wants to fill up their buddy slots. See the difference? (And no, I was not swayed by the Bow and Arrows. It was a very sweet and nice thing that this person decided to do, but it is not necessary at all.) Anyway! Onto the next Jam-a-Gram, which comes from kawaii0rainbow.
Animal Jam does rock, Kawaii Rainbow! And cool username, by the way. Wait, AJ is already using the Saint Patrick's Day cards in their Jam-a-Grams? It's a month away! They should make cards for Leap Year, that's closer. Wait, did they?
Nope, just ones for ol' Saint Patty's day. Missed opportunity, man! Leap Day only comes once every four years! They're gonna be kicking themselves on March 1st. I just know it. YOU'LL REGRET THIS, AJHQ!
That was our Meme of the Day, by the way, because this post is already too long and I got a lot more coming, baby! Okay, next Jam-a-Gr-wait! Wait a second! Hold your horses in the stable. HOLD THEM! THEY'RE RUNNING AWAY! You can use the Halloween Jam-a-Gram in FEBRUARY?!
No way. Why would they do that? they don't have the Valentine ones or the Jamaaliday ones, but the have the Halloween one? That don't make no saanse!Well, let's check it to make absolute sure.
Yep, I guess you can use it. In February. What a strange choice, AJHQ. Well anyway, time for our Jammer Wall comment! It comes from Emmadcbunchofnumbers.
Ha ha! RUUUN IT'S A TAGO!! XD (Wow, how long has it been since I've used that emoticon?) Man, that's crazy. It feels so great to see people quoting something I said, that's the best feeling in the world. It's like coming up with a joke and sharing it with your friends, it warms you up inside and I am eternally grateful to you guys for that. But enough mushy stuff! Too much mush! You guys want to see funny stuff, not me rambling on and on! (But seriously, you guys are great.) Thank you for your hilarious comment, Emmadcbunchofnumbers. Onto the next one!
Yes! Let's play Temple of Trivia! That sounds like a great idea. It's time to take another field trip to Lost Temple of Zios cause it's Game Spotlight time!
Here is the beautiful Trivia Temple in all its glory. Actually, it needs a little work. It's kinda shabby after all these years. I guess once Zios died, no one bothered to clean up his temple. FOR SHAME, SHAMANS AND ALPHAS! FOR SHAME, MIRA! It's not his fault Zios died! Jeez, man! Clean up a little! DON'T YOU SEE THE VALUE IN WORKING HARD?! ZIOS DIDN'T DESERVE THIS!! HE- what? Really? I yell too much? I need to stop? Oh. Well, onto Temple of Trivia, I guess.
Here it is! In all its glory! Although again, it kinda needs to be cleaned up. Look at that "of"! It's so wiped off that it looks like "cr". Temple cr Trivia! Everybody's favorite game! There's also moss or some kind of plant growing on it. Actually, that's kinda nice. Gives it the whole "homey nature" feel. But still, ALPHAS DO YOU PART okay I'm done yelling at creatures on a computer screen. Alright, let's actually start the game for a change!
Aaand we have to wait for 0 seconds. It's actually a lot more than that, I think it's just a glitch. Well, while we're sitting here waiting for 0 seconds,l how was your Wednesday? Mine was good! I'm in the musical at my school, so I went to rehearsal and it was fun. Oh, look at that! 0 seconds are up!
This is the game. They ask you questions about animals and nature in a minute, and the more you get right, the more gems you get. Also, if you're doing especially good or bad, you can express your feelings with emojis!
I have names for all of them. The first one is The World is a Beautiful Place, the second one is What Do Confused Where Go, the third one is The World is a Dark, Dismal Place and the fourth one is ARRRGGGHHH ME CRUSH TREE WITH BARE HANDS. I think they are very descriptive names.
 It's actually not too hard to win this game. As you can see, I won 4 rounds in a row by not doing much, and I'm not bragging. But it's still fun, and the questions are pretty funny sometimes! For example:
Where does an ant live?
1. A colony
2. A skyscraper
3. A car 
Imagine if ants lived in cars! They could just roll up in their sweet ride and be like
Of course, the ants would have to be giant, too. OH! I made a pun without even realizing it! Giant? Oh ho ho! The puns are just flying today! But back to Temple of Trivia.
Here's what happens if you get 3 questions right in a row. A little fire will light up, a spotlight will go on you, and Santa Penguin will start doing a squished Santa penguin dance! He also has wings. And he's purple. Animal Jam is weird, man...
Here's another funny one. I want a restaurant and a snow castle on Mt. Everest! "Good evening, ma'am, would you like the snow or the icicle dish?" How would those restaurant workers even get to their jobs? It's almost 30,000 feet tall! Maybe they'd install a ski lift. Man, THAT would be fun! Riding a ski lift up Mt. Everest, eating at a fancy restaurant, and then going to a snow castle! I want to petition this. Here's my idea:
It's flawless. There's nothing that can go wrong. It's a perfect plan! Wouldn't you like to ride up that ski lift? In all seriousness, though, this is definitely the worst Photoshop job I've ever done XD Okay! This post is falling apart because of silliness, as it always does. So let's end it on a high. Time for this week's RIM, even though it's not a Monday it's a Wednesday but Monday was only 2 days ago so who cares! Yeah!
Oh. It's just a re-colorated version of the Ladybug Hat. Well, it still has pretty colors! I like that yellow! It's a banana-colored ladybug and banana is my favorite shade of yellow. How about you? Actually, you probably don't have a favorite shade of yellow and I'm just weird. But I already knew that! Anyway, that does it for today's post, young snail! Did you like it? That sounds a bit intrusive. How about, I hope you liked it! Yeah, that's better. And before you wonder where the Meme of the Day went, remember, I put it way up there as a lame excuse for one because this post was too long? Yeah, sorry. Oh, and sorry there weren't updates in this one, it just got too long so I'll do those next time D: OKAY! Goodbye for real now! I will see you on LEAP DAY!! Byeeeee ~

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?
