Would you like to share some of your favorite Fluther posts?

Asked by Dutchess_III (28291 points ) August 3rd, 2014

There is a thread about favorite Fluther quotes, but this question is a forum for entire posts. If possible, include a link to the question it came from.

I’ll start. Came across this quote in this old question titled Best or Worst Interview Moment from 2008. The post was penned by our beloved Auggie, probably before she was ever a mod. (The entire thread is pretty hilarious, actually!)

“When I was about 18 or 19 I had my first ‘big company’ interview. I was completely un-prepared when the high-powered woman interviewing me asked what I saw myself doing in 5 years. I mumbled some inane crap like ‘I’d like to be living on a farm, raising horses’. Mind you, I’m a city girl with no desire to do such a thing. I mean, shit. Why didn’t I just tell her I’d like to be chasing rainbows and unicorns?

No, because I do not feel like sifting through thousands of posts for no reason.

Well, if you happen to stumble upon one, as I did, you can share it here.

Gary’s proposal of marriage to Sherry in May, 2008. She said, “Yes.” They got married and then, sadly, vanished. Gary was very ill at the time so we never heard the end of the story, even though lots of us have tried to find them.

Shouldn’t this be in Meta?

I happened to be awake (not sure why because I’m never awake in the middle of the night) and was around for the famous Yarn-pocalypse. I don’t remember all the details and am too tired to find and link them now, but it was a lot of good fun and puns in reference to @YARNLADY.

@jca Did you mean the posts on this thread?

jca's avatar

@Mimishu1995: Yes! That’s the Yarn Pocalypse thread.

Symbeline's avatar

I wish something else like that would happen again.

jca's avatar

@Symbeline: It was like the “Perfect Storm.” It seemed to be the convergence of a few people (perhaps with a few substances thrown in?) and the perfect combo of humor, fun and Fluther. For me, I was home after having had surgery, so I wasn’t on my usual work schedule, where I would normally be sleeping at that hour. To me, it was Fluther at its best: The Fluther Heyday!

Symbeline's avatar

Being a part of that Yarnpocalypse, I can definitely say some substances were involved. Well, for me anyways.

Nobody remembers the Astrochuck day that preceded that in which a number of us changed our Avatars to Astrochuck’s at the same time for a few hours? Jeruba instigated that and I was instrumental in its implementation. Sniff

jca's avatar

Then there was the day when Supermouse left and everyone changed their avatars to hers.

Symbeline's avatar

@janbb I remember that, but those were my first days on Fluther, I didn’t know what was happening, and I barely knew anyone.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Symbeline Would you mind if one day we have a Sympocalyse day?

Symbeline's avatar

That would certainly make my day. :D

jca's avatar

@Mimishu1995: That’s a great idea but I’m wondering if the “new” Fluther would frown upon such an event. The guidelines are so strictly enforced and I am not sure if that would violate the guidelines.

janbb's avatar

On of the points of such a day is that it is a surprise to the honoree so announcing it in advance kind defeats the purpose but I also agree, it might not be accepted now

ucme's avatar

I like any/all posts that include the following words…

Nowt
Bugger
Boobs
Funderful…okay, so I just made that one up, but still

Symbeline's avatar

Oh oh OH yeah I get, yall just saying you wouldn’t want a Sympocalypse I GET IT.
