It looks like this

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

I have never fluthered drunk.
I make enough typos as it is.Not only that,I might say some things I’d regret in the morning. XD

ucme's avatar

I never drink & type, I need both hands to hold two glasses see ;¬}

Blueroses's avatar

@faye You were cracking me up last night on all the threads I kept bumping into you. No worries. If you were drunk, you were wickedly amusing and we all need to let our hair down sometimes.

aprilsimnel's avatar

I reckoned you were pissed, @faye! Hahahahaha!

kenmc's avatar

I’ve done it. I have the uncanny ability to retain my typing skills while intoxicated.

My thumb hurts
I just had a bowl of salvia

wundayatta's avatar

I have never flunk druthered.

Don’t you think I’m silly enough as it is?

jonsblond's avatar

I don’t like to call it drunk fluthering for myself. If I was drunk I’d be passed out. It’s more like buzzed fluthering. we need a word for this.

I bluthered (?) last night. I either love everyone and tell them or I get extremely agitated. Last night was a good night. =)

Allie's avatar

I’ve done it once, I think. I don’t remember what I said. I think Ry was on the same thread poking fun at me though.

seazen_'s avatar

I’m about to start flunking now – watch me – wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

@jon – call it fluzzing?

Blueroses's avatar

“flunking”!! There’s the word!
I’ll do that later after I cross off 2 items on the must-do list

seazen_'s avatar

Yeah, I coin a few phrases -when I’m flunking. Sometimes intentionally, sometimes I typo.

Newbie that comes and asks one question, then leaves: Wham Bam Thank you fluther.

Blueroses's avatar

@seazen_ I call that a “fart and dart”

El_Cadejo's avatar

About half of JP’s post I would say could be accounted to this :P

Ive done it quite a few times, some more successful than others lol

Symbeline's avatar

Three quarters of my activity on here is me drunk fluthering. So that answers that lol.

faye's avatar

@Symbeline You make sense, though!

Symbeline's avatar

I’m a bit more open and like, all emotional when I’m drunk, although one may perceive this in person a lot more than on here. Ho hum.

So what is that about with the keys anyway?

gailcalled's avatar

Unfortunately, we do.

seazen_'s avatar

I’m usually I before E except after C. When I’m flunking, I’m like – wtf?! Yo.

Blueroses's avatar

list items completed – commencing to flunk (or druther) wheeee

ucme's avatar

Or maybe it looks more like this! (Train wreck, for the bewildered among us) ;¬}

<—- Drunk Fluthering

Blueroses's avatar

@Blondesjon I’m Druthering too… a toast!

Blondesjon's avatar

@Blueroses . . . cheers! here’s to never a sober moment spent behind the keyboard.

Blueroses's avatar

@Blondesjon and never a sober movement behind the keyboard either. Ask Beethoven about that one.

Blondesjon's avatar

@Blueroses . . . i would, but, besides the dead part, he’d just keep saying, “What?”.

you know, ‘cuz vincent van gogh cut off ludwig’s ear

Ladymia69's avatar

I am going to take about 3 percocets and get on fluther…nahhhhh, maybe I’ll just go watch a movie…

I have a toothache

Blueroses's avatar

I want about 4 more drinks and one of @ladymia69‘s percocets so I can live in @Blondesjon‘s world. I don’t want to miss my connection at non-sequitur junction when I’m ridin’ the crazy train

Blondesjon's avatar

Beavers and Ducks!

Blueroses's avatar

Now you’re quoting Hedberg. Quit before I fall in love and your wife gets jealous.

Blondesjon's avatar

mitch hedberg? i was quoting billy bob’s character Terry Lee Collins in the Bruce Willis vehicle Bandits.

as far as the wife goes, you’re on your own. i don’t fuck with her since the restraining order. good luck.

Blueroses's avatar

—A duck loves bread, but he does not have the capability to buy a loaf. That’s the biggest joke on the duck ever. If I worked at a convenience store, and a duck came in and stole a loaf of bread, I would let him go. I’d say, “Come back tomorrow, bring your friends!” When I think of a duck’s friends, I think of other ducks. But he could have, say, a beaver in tow.
Cuz beavers have kickass houses. Lakeside, my ass, lake ON!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I have flunked a time or two… and had quite a few memorable nights from drunk wis.dming also!

Blueroses's avatar

As it turns out: I am bulletproof, irresistible, incomparably wise, psychic, sexy as all-getout, magical, flirtatious, telekinetic and the daughter of Gods.

I forgot what question I was answering.

KateTheGreat's avatar

Almost every one of my responses or questions can be considered “drunk fluthering”.

Ladymia69's avatar

I am totally under the influence of my own mind-juice. you should try it, but you can’t.

Symbeline's avatar

That’s what you think…’‘snaps teeth’’

Ladymia69's avatar

SYMbeline, NOOOOOOOoooooooo oooooooooo…......

Symbeline's avatar

’‘slurps’’ Hmmm…

jonsblond's avatar

@Blueroses jealousy is for those that can’t have my husband ;)

Nullo's avatar

Watch for late-night posts. 20 straight hours of wakefulness are (I am told) equivalent to mild inebriation in terms of what it does to the quality of your writing.

Symbeline's avatar

It most certainly does. Sleep deprivation can make you write weird stuff haha.

@KatetheGreat ’‘shares’’ :D

Blueroses's avatar

officially flunking/druthering and prepared to fight @jonsblond for the right to bed @Symbeline and @KatetheGreat

KateTheGreat's avatar

Flunking/druthering for the win! :D

wundayatta's avatar

since I can’t sleep, could I please be temporarily dead?

chels's avatar

Yeah. It looks like this and this!

everephebe's avatar

Like this.

Ladymia69's avatar

Can we make a website: “THIS is what drunk-Fluthering looks like.”

Or a flicker page.

@Seelix My life is complete.

kenmc's avatar

I’m drunk right now. Or like ¾ of the way there.

I thought yarnlady was posting all of those above me… Until I paid a bit of attention to the @‘s.

seazen_'s avatar

Pardonez moi – is this in General? What’s with all the responses moderated? Spammers?

Seelix's avatar

We sure do know what drunk Fluthering looks like. Unfortunately, some of it (wisely) got modded, but anyone who woke up early this morning knows exactly what it looks like.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Seelix I think that you, @Symbeline, and I should get an award for it!

El_Cadejo's avatar

modded for flame bait.,..... hardly. Drunken nonsense sure, but flame bait? Come on mods….

Michael_Huntington's avatar

That should be a flagging option.
“Drunken nonsense”.

Symbeline's avatar

Haha yeah. It’s legitimate now anyways. What WERE all those modded responses? I don’t even remember lol.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Symbeline Most likely drunken responses from both of us and the screen shots that @Seelix posted.

Seelix's avatar

@Symbeline – I think they were also the ones that used Yarnlady’s actual first name.

Symbeline's avatar

People created new accounts with her name?

Seelix's avatar

@Symbeline – No no, I know that at one point @seazen_ referred to her not as Yarnlady but using her real name.

gailcalled's avatar

If I didn’t before, I do now. Do those who drink reread their comments when they are sober? Do they still find them witty, original, (wickedly) amusing, fraught with meaning and worthy of readers?

gailcalled's avatar

Delighted that you have a niche audience.

Seelix's avatar

Oh, it was just a bit of fun and didn’t hurt anyone. Nothing to get upset about.

gailcalled's avatar

I’m not upset. But neither are we amused.

Seelix's avatar

That’s fine. But I do think it’s kind of rude to say so publicly. Why not just ignore it? And who’s “we”?

gailcalled's avatar

I was paraphrasing a famous quote of Queen Victoria. I make my feelings public because of my concern about the collective, about which I feel protective.

I have found the drunken fluther thread kind of rude. Why not just stay in the chat room, which was designed specifically for this kind of tomfoolery?

Seelix's avatar

Well, I’m sorry that you’re not “amused”. But we weren’t planning on amusing anyone but ourselves. And I’m not going to feel bad about it unless Auggie, Ben or Andrew tells me that I should. I understand your feeling protective, but a silly night of silliness is not going to affect anything, and frankly, as childish as this sounds, I don’t have to obey you.

Michael_Huntington's avatar

Wow…Major buzzkill in this thread

seazen_'s avatar

When you hover on Yarn’s avatar – it says Janet bunny ears on it.

Personally, I was here when we had an astrochuck day – in fact – it was done all in threads – not in chat. Someone rhyming with Aruba PMed me to switch at a certain time and keep mum about it. Classic fluther. Yarn was cool about it too. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – and if you all feel like doing a Picard day – knock yourselves out. It would be silly – wait a year – but I’d be flattered. Time to say goodbye to this stuff now. Enjoy the music

ZEN OUT

jonsblond's avatar

I don’t think @gailcalled is being rude at all. She is just stating her opinion. We are allowed to do that here, aren’t we? Has everyone lost respect for others’ opinions here?

One or two threads with yarn and squirrels is amusing at first, but every other question and going on everyone else’s thread with this is overkill. Amusing for you, annoying to the rest.

gailcalled's avatar

Annan tilauksia vain suomalaisiin. (Oma klikki puhuu suomea)

Michael_Huntington's avatar

@seazen_ I’m down with a Picard day.

seazen_'s avatar

In a year. In chat.

I give my orders in Klingon. I have no clique – my clique is fluther.

Blueroses's avatar

God dammit! What did I miss? Teach me to have a sober day off… Why does everyone look like Yarn? Who was inappropriate? Tell me!!!

I miss all the good shit

KateTheGreat's avatar

@seazen_ I honestly thought that the link you posted above was going to be something related to ABBA. Hahahaha.

Blondesjon's avatar

@gailcalled . . . Tämä on hauska.ryhmä laama kutsutaan klikki. Mitä sanot ryhmä sopulien?

Blueroses's avatar

here’s a llama, there’s a llama

Still confused.

How many drunk flutherers can translate lemmings into Finnish?

KateTheGreat's avatar

Sopuli? Am I right?

Blondesjon's avatar

@gailcalled . . . Vain juopot minun kaliiperi. Niistä on hyvin vähän.

Seelix's avatar

Voin käyttää Google Translate myös! Olen tällainen sopuli. Tai apina. Tai mitä sinä puhut.

Symbeline's avatar

Eh, I admit, some of this might have went overboard. We probably should have limited down the number of yarn threads to just a few, and not have overlapped this in threads that weren’t about it. Hell even one of my own questions was taken away for this. But once in a while doesn’t hurt, and I think Fluther is unique and cool for having allowed this.
Whether it was rude or not, I’ve seen sober people here being rude as shit, anyways. But of course that can’t stick out so much as something like yesterday. Personally, I don’t see any harm done, and those who weren’t in the idea to begin with had fun with it.
I’m not saying, if it happened every day. But it doesn’t. The intention was good, although it might have gave the mods some extra work…XD

Still, I don’t regret it.

ucme's avatar

Is this “Finnished” yet? Don’t want to kick up a “Hellstinky” here! God I amuse myself sometimes XD

Blondesjon's avatar

@Seelix . . . Who said anything about you?

The Finnish conversation between @gailcalled and myself is about drunk Fluthering from the days of old.

Poista sirun olkapäältä.

jonsblond's avatar

Yes, I’ve had to deal with this Finnish love affair for over two years now. Lucky I’m not the jealous type :P

Looks like this.

Ladymia69's avatar

Why don’t people just live and let live on this site?

Blondesjon's avatar

the internet is an extension of people who live in the real world (whether they like it or not). in the real world people have still not learned to live and let live.

plus, a lot of folks have taken to this place like a virtual home away from home and what’s ok in one person’s house isn’t always acceptable in another’s

Ladymia69's avatar

Is that an excuse for us not to try? Can’t we evolve?

Blondesjon's avatar

not an excuse, just an insight. you asked.

besides, as unpopular as this is going to sound, “live and let live” is boring. utopias are boring. that’s the real reason we ate the apple.

Symbeline's avatar

Live and let live and respecting opinions doesn’t mean we can’t discuss stuff. It’s all I was doing.

ucme's avatar

Don’t piss down my back & tell me it’s raining!
Completely unrelated to anything that’s gone on here….I just like saying it XD

Blondesjon's avatar

@ucme . . . who’s the boss applesauce?

ucme's avatar

@Blondesjon I’m your Huckleberry!

Seelix's avatar

Ugh. I give up. I have no “chip on my shoulder”, @Blondesjon. I really don’t care what you or anyone else thinks of me. I was just trying to figure out why everyone around here, who are usually super cool, got sticks up their asses. But I’m just gonna leave it alone, because I really don’t care that much.

Blondesjon's avatar

@Seelix . . . I still don’t understand how I have any kind of problem with you, but, your post seems to actually care quite a bit.
