Meta Question

I would like to put all of our differences aside for one minute and wish you something.

Asked by judochop (16006 points ) January 1st, 2012

Mods, feel free to take this down but I hope you don’t. I know I am violating Fluther laws by posting like this but…I thought it would be nice to have a group hug sort of thing since we can’t all seem to make the chat room happen at once.
No good answer fest, just a good old hello and best wish thread.

I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy new year. I truly hope the best for everyone alive in this time and the best for those to come. I hope the universe forgives those who have passed on and that Fluther can continue to grow in different directions. I know that many see today as just another day and in essence, it is just that but for some, like me, it is a starting line and a finish line. So, to kick off the new year. I would like to give you all a hug and wish you the best.
Much love everyone. Best wishes.

That is the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard! I’ll do it.
Hello to all of the jellies, whereever you may be, even those I’m not the most fond of. I wish you have the best year, and that you stay in good health with good friends and family members around you.

New Year’s Eve and Day are my favorite holidays, and I hope everyone had a good time—no exceptions.

A fine year to all Jellies and their loved ones, and may I wish extra strength to all who will have to face the, sadly, inevitable bad times.

Merry Christmas?

harple's avatar

Here’s to a wonderful year, with thanks to you all for the last one… A very different start to my year this year, but a happy one still.

Enjoy it, Savour it, Love it!

flutherother's avatar

Have a happy and a healthy 2012 and may at least one of your dreams come true.

digitalimpression's avatar

Cheers for another year where the world is supposed to end but won’t. We just can’t seem to have an apocalypse no matter how much we talk about it.

Bellatrix's avatar

2011 was a hard year for some here, I sincerely hope 2012 brings each and every one of you whatever it is you hope for. For our planet, let’s all hope for a more peaceful world community and a calmer environment with no major natural disasters. I think we had way too many of those in 2011.

Happy New Year to you all and yes! Group Hug!!!

@RareDenver LOVE IT!

This is so sweet! I wish more people would take the time to say something as sweet and simple – but so meaningful – as this! Happy happy happy New Year!!

“a starting line and a finish line”
I like that and am finding it to be true for myself, also.

Peace, Love and Happiness to all in the upcoming new year.

{{{Hugs}}} to all jellies and may 2012 be a year of joy.

everephebe's avatar

So much for a GA/GQ fest. I don’t think this violates any fluther codes but this should be in Meta, no?
Cheers. Happy New Years! QuetzalcohuńĀtl can bring it on.

CaptainHarley's avatar

Happy New Year to everyone! You will all be in my prayers this year. I will pray that God ( or the Universe, or what have you ) bless you and keep you safe.

downtide's avatar

Thankyou @judochop I hope the mods leave this one up. Happy New Year to all Flutherites {{{hugs}}}

digitalimpression's avatar

I see no reason why they would take it down. It’s not at all like my “Merry Christmas let’s all pass out lurve to each other for nothing” question that was taken down.

HungryGuy's avatar

Indeed. Best wishes everyone!

And I see several mods have replied above, so I guess the Q is staying up.

Happy New Year and best wishes to all!

::sobs::
Waaahh. ::HONNNK::
You…you…are an amazing bunch of jellies.

::sniff::

augustlan's avatar

@digitalimpression We don’t allow threads that are for the purpose of getting and giving lurve. Sorry!

Dog's avatar

2011 was a year that part of me wishes I never had to experience, yet I matured and learned from it like no other year ever so, in reality, despite the huge emotional toll it took, it was a year that I would not give up for anything.

Oh wait… I am totally off topic.

For all Flutherites:

May 2012 be a year of enlightenment and growth.
May you be blessed with peace and appreciate all that is beautiful in your life.
That you laugh with joy and share happiness with others.
That your family gatherings be full of great memories.
May any trials you face be overcome and may you become a better person because of them.
May you feel the thrill of achievement and yet still have the class to help those who fail.

But most of all, might 2012 be a year that you assess what is truly important to you and give you the resolve to settle for nothing less.

Happy New Year Jellies!

Symbeline's avatar

Hey man, this is a sweet question. :) A super happy new year to everyone on Fluther, and may you all live long and prosper. :)

ZEPHYRA's avatar

All I hope is that it’s a peaceful, calm and healthy year. May we all continue to have an income, family/friend support and above all no serious health issues. That’s about it.

Happy New Year! :)

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I’m not really great at this sort of thing, but I really do lurve you all to bits. I hope that 2012 is a positive year for all of you, some of the most wonderful people I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know.

Blueroses's avatar

I’ll :::POP::: open another bottle of lurve. Everybody take a sip and pass it around, there’s plenty more where that came from.

Peace, flowers, freedom and happiness to all of y’all!

linguaphile's avatar

@Blueroses sip, sip, sip, sip! (any unattended glasses? I’ll take those too! yum!) sip, slurp! Thank you so very much! :D

RareDenver's avatar

@Blueroses & @linguaphile all sounds a little unhygienic, can’t we just have a glass each?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Mmm jelly germs.

MilkyWay's avatar

Aaa… aaa.. Atchooo!!
Excuse me. (sniff)

Kardamom's avatar

Thanks for the group hug!

Could somebody please tell me who’s pushing that giant tootsie roll into my bum? Or is that Fluther just happy to see me?

Let’s try to do our best in 2021, to create and participate in great discussions, to try to think about the situation from the other person’s perspective, to try our hardest not to be mean or rude, and to try to give others the benefit of the doubt, even though it appears that they are being mean or rude to us (sometimes they’re just pointing out what we cannot or do not want to see). May we make it a habit to not Fluther when angry, or at least count to 100 before we post an answer. May we realize that sometimes the way in which an A or Q is written makes a load of difference in the way in which it is perceived. Let’s vow to think before we type to make sure we are saying what we really mean. Let’s decide to agree to disagree when the feelings of anger get too intense. Just because you might be 100% right, doesn’t mean you need to come to verbal blows to get your point across, learn how to walk away from a discussion that has gotten out of hand. Give credit where credit is due. Remember that we are a community, and we really are here to help each other, even though we may come from different backgrounds, have different family dynamics, have very different life experiences, or have different ideals and expectations about what life is and how it should be lived. We’re still a community, and we’re here to help each other.

Happy New Year to all of you!

MilkyWay's avatar

Um… @Kardamom , most of us here are still in 2012.
Not all of us have time machines you know. Anyways, hows the weather there in 2021?

Kardamom's avatar

@MilkyWay Oh my, I guess I should’ve checked that a little closer LOL

But guess what? We have a mixed race (black, American Indian and Asian) female lesbian president who’s been with her partner, also of mixed race (Inuit, Latino, Middle Eastern) since 2013, when it became legal for same sex couples to marry in California. The first lady is a doctor who participated in finding the cure for both aids and cancer. The other cool thing is that some dude finally came up with a way to make nachos, cheeseburgers and double stuffed crust pizza not only healthy, but these foods now help to prevent diabetes and alcoholism. Pretty cool, huh?

Justin Bieber went on to be a super successful movie score composer. Owen Wilson won an Oscar as a respected older actor. Marijuana became legal and regulated and taxed for use with cancer patients and glaucoma patients, and pot plants are now used to make paper and fabric and building materials instead of just being for clandestine recreational use. A chemical was discovered to render dangerous chemicals inert, and now instead of having garbage dumps, we have trash to construction materials factories that give 100% employment to all that seek it.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Kardamom The way I know you’re lying is that you referred to Owen Wilson as an actor.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar
