Amazing that our fearless leader/mom/boss lady/whip-wielding dominatrix Augustlan has the time to participate enough to reach 40K! Are all as amazed and delighted as I?

Asked by JilltheTooth (19647 points ) February 28th, 2012

Knowing how hard she works to keep things running here, it’s a wonder she can actually ask and answer enough to amass the lurve! Pancakes, champagne, guacamole and of course cakes in frizzers all laid out for the party!

fundevogel's avatar

Yay-hooray! I don’t want to congratulate you so much as thank you for helping keep Fluther the place we love with the kindness and wisdom you demonstrate in your questions and answers and the not so secret behind the scenes canings.

Your rod and your staff. They comfort me.

We lurves you!!

(Sung to any tune you can find.)

linguaphile's avatar

Wha-hooo-hooo-hoooo!!!!!!! Congrats!!!

marinelife's avatar

Congratulations, @Augustlan! 40K That’s a big number. And no wonder you reached it. All the things that make you a great Community Manager: wisdom, even-handedness, sense of humor also make you the great person that you are and contributor to Fluther. You had me at A.

Jeruba's avatar

Apart from the fluthergods themselves, nobody is more deserving of celebration than our Auggie. She welcomes us, makes us comfy, passes around the pancake syrup, and occasionally reminds us when we need to use our napkins.

This verse by @thorninmud is such a great tribute that it’s no immodesty for her to display it on her profile page:

Through this wasteland of spammers and trolls,
Our High-Priestess of Order patrols.
  Thanks to skilled application
  Of her dread flagellation,
We’re remarkably free of assholes.

Symbeline's avatar

Congrats Auggie! You and your badass self sure deserve it, for all the work you do around here. We all appreciate it. and thanks for going easy on me XD

Enjoy the party, and keep up the excellent work, but most of all, keep on being awesome! Cheers. ’‘hugs!’’

I bow humbly to you….

Bellatrix's avatar

Oh my goodness! How truly wonderful to be able to celebrate your presence amongst us. The 40K is no real surprise. I will not be surprised when you receive 100k of lurve and you deserve every little click of it. You are an amazing woman and if you ever doubt how much love you have generated in this world, you need only check into Fluther and I hope it will radiate back out at you. I just wish we could have a real ticker-tape parade for you.

jonsblond's avatar

I dedicate this song for you Auggie. Now get your ass on the dance floor with me! <3

Jude's avatar

Who is this fearless leader that you speak of?

Oh, omnipresent and omnipotent one, congrats!!!

flutherother's avatar

She wears black leather tights and she carries a whip
Which she knows how to use as she runs a tight ship
She is helpful and kind she can be like a mother
She’s the 40K angel of www dot fluther.

Happy 40 K August Motherfucking Lan!
You are one of the very reasons I love this site!
Congo Rats and WTFG!

thorninmud's avatar

According to the cold, dismal laws of thermodynamics, the universe is inexorably sliding toward chaos. Productive Order must eventually give way to an impotent stasis. But here on Fluther, one valiant woman at the head of a ragtag band of citizen soldiers cries out from atop the ramparts, whip in hand, “Not on my watch!!!!”

fundevogel's avatar

Entropy better watch itself.

HungryGuy's avatar

Congrats, @augustlan!

But you work here. What took you so long? :-p

whitecarnations's avatar

Congratulations! I’m super stoked to see what @augustlan has to say in celebration of the big 4-O

janbb's avatar

Wake up, little Auggie, wake up!!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Congrats augustlan. You and your team do a nice job running this site. We’ve been on the opposite sides on a few hot issues and you’ve always treated me very well. I too wonder how you can run the site and still have time to answer enough questions to get to 40K. But then again it might have been blackmail, the whip, or maybe a little gaming the system. Congrats lady.

laureth's avatar

Lurve you, Fluther-Mom! :) Conga rats!

AmWiser's avatar

Congratulations Augustlan. You deserve 100,000+K! Great job.

KateTheGreat's avatar

HOLY BANANAS.

All hail the Fluther Queen! I bow down to your large amounts of lurve!

wundayatta's avatar

And welcome to the Artist Colony! It may be a bit of a lonely place at the moment, but believe me, the moon is a lot lonelier! Still, please get your ass in gear and get here pronto!

Ah, lady! You’re a wonderful person who has taken on a thankless job and somehow managed to get people to thank you for it. Your sense of humor must be stapled to you with a lot of very large staples. It’s a good thing you do, even if I don’t always agree with you about your decisions. I bet you never thought it would turn into a real job, did you? And by that, I don’t mean a job that pays you. I mean a job where you really have to work!

Anyway, thanks for being there as a friend back when I was having a pretty hard time, and thanks for being her now, somehow managing to hold this joint together!

Congratulations on 40K!

XOIIO's avatar

@wundayatta Actually, you are still one up from auggie, 50kers have their own thing. Also, who the heck is the other 50ker?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I’m really late, as I have been trying to avoid my computer for a bit… but I just HAD to pop in for this!

UBERFANTASTICFRIKKINCONGRATULATIONS, AUGUSTMUTHERFUCKINLAN!

XOIIO's avatar

Ahh, there we go.

Man, those too spend too much time here.

Congrats!!!

Let’s shed off those clothes. I’m ready for pancakes.

vvv Can’t wait to read what @Kardamom has to say :)

Kardamom's avatar

Dearest Augustlan, I wanted to congratulate you last night, but I was in the middle of a weep-fest over the loss of Davy Jones. All cried out now, feeling better.

Just wanted to let you know that it’s because of your thoughtfulness and your attention to detail and your gentle humor that make this site what it is, super-nifty!

And for your special occasion we wanted to do something a little bit different so we’ve had the landscape architects out at the mansion grounds (you know, the newer bigger part that we purchased last year) for a few months now in anticipation of your 40K. They were able to make your plot of land have multiple orgas…oops, I mean multiple landscape features so that you can choose which activities you’d like to participate in when the mood suits you.

So if you look to the west, you will see This and if you look towards the north you will see This and if you look towards the south you will see This and if you look towards the east, you will see This

And for your dining pleasure, we have re-located several restaurants that we hope you might like. Restaurant 1 and Restaurant 2 and Restaurant 3 and last, but not least Restaurant 4

Hope you likey!
