Fun Facts about Leap Year + Cami's Frog Info

HAPPY LEAP YEAR 2016! ^.^ Here are some cool fun facts about February 29th that you NEVER (joking, joking, but hey, you might not know some!) knew!

1. People born on Leap Year are known as "leaplings" or "leapers".

2. Astrologers believe people whom are born on Leap Year under the Zodiac sign of Pisces have unusual talents and abilities, such as burping the alphabet.

3. In Greece, it is considered bad luck to be born on Leap Year.

4. U.S. Presidential Elections and the Summer Olympics are both held every four years and occur in the Leap Year.

5. It was the ancient Egyptians who first discovered that the solar calendar and the man-made calendar didn't always match up.

6. The chances of a baby being born on Leap Year is one in 1,461.

In other news, just in case you were wondering, the brand of Cami's IRL frog plush is Pottery Barn Kids, a store in SLC. I've been there numerous times. ^.^ Froggy is also an 18" plush and made of chamois. Cool, huh? :)

Animal Jam Improvement Idea: Birthday Cards

Hi! ^_^

As you all know, yesterday was my little sister's birthday party. All of this commotion about birthdays and presents and cake and what not has really got me thinking about how AJHQ could improve their game. Sounds... abnormal. o3o

But believe it or not, it will all make sense soon.

I suppose I could tell you a little story.

When I first joined AJ, I wasn't too bright. I didn't know much about the game. In fact, my first rare I ever acquired (which was a purple glove) I had no clue that it was rare until my friend told me.

Basically, I expected everything from AJ that I did from Webkinz, another fun game that I played.

Every year on your birthday, you get a birthday card in your mailbox, along with a wish token, I believe. So on the day of my birthday, I logged onto AJ, anxious to find a birthday card and maybe a prize or two in my mailbox, but that wasn't the case.

So, I think it would be fun if every year on your birthday you received a card and a present from AJHQ! :)

That way, everyone would feel loved on their birthdays. xD

Fashion Show Voting Day #14: THE FINAL WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Hello! :)

I am thrilled to announce the winners of the Friendship Festival Fashion Show.

I'm sure you already know who our third place winner is - Happy Magicpuppy! ^-^ Congratulations once again, Happy. c:

In second place, we have Precious Cuteraccoon! Congratulations! :D Precious, I forgot your username. xD I know it starts with "cheetah", but I can't remember the rest. Mind commenting your user down below so I can send you your prizes?

And in first place, we have General Strongwolf! Congratulations, General! Your prizes have been sent and are awaiting you in your mailbox. :3

Introverts (and Extroverts)

I've finally discovered what stereotype group I belong in.

Yes, you can call me an introvert.

There are two kinds of "verts": extroverts and introverts.

Extroverts typically don't think before they speak, they're uncontrollably happy, they're outgoing (and sometimes rather obnoxious), they make friends easily, and they love to meet new people and socialize. They also love to be the center of attention.

Introverts, on the other hand, enjoy solitude and privacy and think more than what comes out of their mouths. Introverts tend to have greater intellect and creativity than extroverts.

Everyone that I know seems to have given me the label "shy" or "quiet" or "anti-social". Deep down inside, I've always known that wasn't true, or at least it wasn't the right definition.

Now I know what I am. I'm an introvert. I'm an introvert and I'm proud.

I often notice what most people don't. I'm very observant and a good listener, unlike my brother, who, now that I think about it, is probably an extrovert, as well as my sister.

Which kind of "vert" are you? :3

(Mom needs to work on these. owo)

Even More Bad News...

Our desktop computer is officially dead. Dad took it in to the computer guy to see what was wrong with it, and we didn't exactly get the answer we wanted.

So, that means all of our pictures and videos of our family, including many more documents and files  is GONE. I'm especially disappointed because of all the stories I had ever written were on that computer.

The only way we can restore the information is by paying $1,500. And we need a new desktop computer, so that's another $3,000.

I never realized how much I needed the desktop computer until now.

To make matters worse, I'm getting braces on tomorrow.

I just feel like crying a river, building a boat, and sailing it away from reality.

Utahnics

Hi! ^-^

You might not know this already, but I'm from Arizona.

I lived there for the first four years of my life. Then we moved to Utah.

And here in Utah, we pronounce things differently than other Americans do.

So, if you've ever wanted to learn how to talk like a Naffy Taffy, here's how! xD

MOUNTAIN = MOW'UN

Yep. We often skip the T in mountain.


BUTTON = BUH'UN

Same thing with button.


SHERBET = SHERBERT

My mom is always asking me how to pronounce sherbet correctly. I tell her it's "sherbet", but she doesn't believe me, so we both go back to saying "sherbert".


PRESCRIPTION = PERSCRIPTION

Speaking of which, I need to go take my daily dose.


PREDICTABLE = PERDICTABLE

That was "perdictable".


CROSSED/ACROSS = CROSST/ACROSST

I swam "acrosst" the river, so I "crosst" the river. Get it? No? Okay.


CREEK = CRIK

My grandma is a real sucker for this one. Every time she tries to say the word creek it comes out as "crik". :I


ROOT = WRUT


Another word my grandma needs to practice.


PICTURE = PITCHER

Yet ANOTHER word on my grandma's list of vocabulary to work on.


LIBRARY = LIEBARRY

"Mooommm! I wanna go to the LIEBARRY!!!"


FEBRUARY = FEBUARY

I am the only person who feels like this is mispronounced outside of Utah as well, or am I just crazy?


ESPRESSO = EXPRESSO

Blech. Coffee.


ESCAPE = EXSCAPE

You're free, little fishy!



That's all of the words I can think of for now. Let me know how YOU pronounce these words!

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
