Do you find that you miss certain Jellies when you don't see them 'round or posting as much?

Asked by Jude (31993 points ) March 30th, 2010

Or is it just me?

I really miss @the Joker and @Oratio and @Shieldofachilles

Jude's avatar

Ah. Trillian, I guess that it’s just you and I..

sniff sniff

cyn's avatar

Yes, I want @The_Compassionate_Heretic to come back! I really do. And @whatthefluther to be more active.

Vunessuh's avatar

Not really. Anyone on here that I would miss I can easily email or IM or call on the phone.
But there are only a handful of people where I love coming across their answers because they crack me up, so I would miss having a good laugh if they left.
LOL at tentacles wipes single tear.
Giggles.

Jude's avatar

@Vunessuh you love Amy Sedaris. You need to be in my Fluther.

dpworkin's avatar

I miss Gary. Seeya.

janbb's avatar

Gary is around some of the time, but not very much.

I miss AustinLad, AlfredaPrufrock, TitsMcGhee (who’s around once in a while), Oratio, Evelyn’s_Pet_Zebra…

Oh – and my friend Saturated_Brain. (How are you, kiddo?)

Haven’t seen Darwin and shilolo posting much lately either, although I assume they’re still modding.

Jude's avatar

And, @janbb don’t you dare go anywhere!

anartist's avatar

I’m too new to miss people, but if some of the people Jellies I talk to now disappeared I would miss them.

janbb's avatar

@jjmah But RL is missing me so much lately…..

Jude's avatar

@janbb I know, I know. I’ve been spending so much time on here and Spring has finally sprung. Maybe, I should do more of the RL thing, as well.

janbb's avatar

@jjmah Kind of a scary thought, no?

AstroChuck's avatar

I miss Harp and wildflower. I don’t see them posting much anymore.

tinyfaery's avatar

What happened to Wild Potato?

janbb's avatar

Yeah – I was wondering about Harp recently. Where are you? (And Jayne was great too.) Wildflower blooms occasionally but not often.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Yep. I miss EPZ, TCH, Austinlad, Oratio, LC Beta, and sjmc1989. And I really wish Gary would post more often.

Jude's avatar

Maybe, I should take a wee break?

we’ll see how long that lasts.

janbb's avatar

yeah, mine lasted 20 minutes.

Jude's avatar

LOL!

I’m gonna beat that.

tinyfaery's avatar

@jjmah It takes you 20 minutes to pee? ;)

Jude's avatar

I’m not here, nor do you see me posting.

Woman, I was a mess on Jon’s show. I pissed me drawers from laughing. Nikki said to me “suck it up and play through it!”, haha!

janbb's avatar

timing, timing

Jude's avatar

I lost. You’re the weiner.

janbb's avatar

hot diggity dog

Jude's avatar

This time 20 minutes or so. I’m off for a run. I’ll ketchup with you later.

janbb's avatar

You mustard heard me thinking about you.

dpworkin's avatar

Get a room.

janbb's avatar

Oh, you’re just being a sauer kraut because you weren’t invited to the party. Or maybe, in your case, Russian dressing would be more apt?

SuperMouse's avatar

Naked Homer, poofandmook, scamp, dragonflyfaith, and of course whatthefluther and sccrowell… There are many others who are not as active as they once were, but I am fortunate to be able to keep up with them on facebook.

dpworkin's avatar

Get a mushroom.

janbb's avatar

Condiments will get you nowhere. (Damn – I’m so good I even surprise myself sometimes!)

dpworkin's avatar

Olive H’aSholem

janbb's avatar

hummus ou matzoh?

(genug shoyn)

dpworkin's avatar

yeah, genug, because you know when you’re beet, @janbb

tinyfaery's avatar

Aww…poof. I miss her, too.

Jude's avatar

@dpworkin do your best to kosher her into the mushroom.

You two are cute.

janbb's avatar

No darlin’, you know how I relish a good pun war. I was trying to give back the thread but if you still want to do this….

janbb's avatar

@jjmah I’ll kosher your mushroom.

@dpworkin So this is our second seder?

Jude's avatar

@janbb keep at it, woman. I don’t mind. Have fun playin’ with dpgerkin. :)

dpworkin's avatar

I haven’t the koich.

janbb's avatar

@ Mr. Pickle I told you you were too old for this.

Before I get too cheesed off, I think I’ll try the 20 minute thingy and get ready for bed.

G’night, sweeties. (Oh, who I am I kidding? I’ll be back in 10 minutes.)

janbb's avatar

@gailcalled poked up her head and stuck it back down! Not like you to avoid a good pun war, Gail!

ubersiren's avatar

I often miss jellies, but then when I go to their profiles, I realize they’ve been posting and I’ve just not run into them. I think I’m just not very observant.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes. Yes I do.

It’s not just you, @jjmah.

augustlan's avatar

I totally do. If I don’t know why they’re missing, it’s even worse. :(

wildpotato's avatar

Hello, my friends! I haven’t been around much because I’ve been working more and because I am rereading the Song of Fire and Ice series. Those books are like crack. Also, a fluther break is needed. My guess is that I’ll cycle through phases of more and less intense activity on here for as long as I am a member – I tend to do that with most things. So no worries!

ubersiren's avatar

I really wish @elijah would post more.

janbb's avatar

@wildpotato Thanks for the status update.

@ubersiren Forgot about her – yeah! So many thousand Jellies gone!

An interesting question might be who don’t you miss, but I don’t think we want to go there.

ubersiren's avatar

@janbb No, we definitely don’t. :)

Jude's avatar

Lately, the quality of questions have been lacking (seriously lacking). I’ve talked with a few other jellies who are also thinking about taking a break for awhile, with some..for good. It’s just not the same anymore.

Sure there are fun times, still, but, they are few and far between.

janbb's avatar

@jjmah I wonder what the difference is? Are we victims of “our” own success?

tinyfaery's avatar

Hi @wildpotato. I had the B52’s in my head all day, yesterday.

AstroChuck's avatar

@tinyfaery- Don’t go near the patio. Beware of the pool!

dpworkin's avatar

I’m not scared. I don’t miss the Heretic one whit. In fact, I’m glad he’s gone.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

TaoSan, Eponymoushipster, Dr_C, The_Compassionate_Heretic (he was so damn awesome, yeah!) and lots of others who came to check it out and then tapered off. I know I can e-mail some of the jellies and others on my facebook and other sites but it’s a lot of fun to all be in one place at the same time.

janbb's avatar

Eponymous puts in his 2 cents once in a while and Dr. C is still around.

cyn's avatar

Dr_C lives in the chatroom. Go visit us sometime. (: a lot or jellies are not so active anymore. :( not as they used to.
I cry because T.C.H. is not here anymore. I miss a great jelly. A fantastic one.

dpworkin's avatar

I guess I can see that. He may have been stuffy, but at least he was humorless.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

@dpworkin
Au Contraire, T.C.H. is also a comedian. Jeesh, how did you miss all that?

dpworkin's avatar

I had better leave it here. I may, indeed, have missed something crucial.

SuperMouse's avatar

I see him in the chatroom, but it would be nice to have Grisaille posting more often!

Symbeline's avatar

I miss that DeColuma guy, I forgot the actual username. He was awesome.

Otherwise though, most of the people I would miss I have other ways to get in touch with them besides here.

Dog's avatar

DeColuma = Chat room
Dr_C = Chat room
Grisaille= Chat room

I miss TaoSan, Spargett, The_Compassionate_Heretic and a few more.

I think that this question is a testimony to the quality of Fluther users.

cyn's avatar

@dog, I was just thinking that! Quality is by far better than quantity. I love some new users though (nothing against them). :)

janbb's avatar

Yes, I did want to say that a number of great new Jellies have joined in recent months. We shouldn’t always be pining for the Good Old Days, although I do kinda miss Jack Adams.

Jude's avatar

Where’d my faery go?

I’ll stick around. Probably will be lurking more than posting.

rangerr's avatar

I miss THC, EPZ and Oratio. :(
You guys better be lurking. And you guys better get back here.

@Symbeline Dan! He just got a new job, so he’s been really busy recently.
@Trillian Shield? Hahahahahahaha.

Symbeline's avatar

Yes, Dan. Man that’s easy to remember, I’m an ass. Anyways, good on him. :)

rangerr's avatar

Waittttt. Why did I type THC? What the hell?

tinyfaery's avatar

Haha. Slip?

Dan_DeColumna's avatar

Hello, I’m still alive. I’ve just been consumed with making sure I keep this new job of mine. Also, what time I do have online gets eaten up by email/facebook/Post-Apocalyptia Blog . Regardless, I’ll make an effort to be around a little more. Thanks for the compliment!

augustlan's avatar

@Dan_DeColumna Good to see you! Glad you’re still alive.

Jude's avatar

I’ve been popping in daily, but not posting all that much. For some reason, though, I’m not into the site as much as I was in the past. That and real life has been a callin’.

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

@jjmah That and spring has sprung!

kenmc's avatar

I miss a lot of my old wis.dm pals like OhMyWord, Jiminez, and TCH.

And whatever happened to the bee?~

Jude's avatar

Where the hell is Grisaille?

janbb's avatar

Oh jeez – so many good Jellies come and gone. This was a stroll down memory lane.
