I don’t hate anything really. Hate is such a harsh word.

talljasperman's avatar

what changed…I like Fluther

fujivelo's avatar

@summum you have only been here since 2010
after the changes. fluther was way better in ‘07

wilma's avatar

I don’t hate it.
I like it very much.

Plaid Pants.

janbb's avatar

Come out from your disguise and tell us who is dissing Fluther.

Aethelwine's avatar

I never understood why someone would continue to visit a site they aren’t happy with and tell everyone how much they hate it here.

what, are we in 3rd grade?

Cruiser's avatar

This new Fluther is so much better than that old clunky Fluther you speak of….are you kidding me??

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’ve only been here since last July, but again and again the whole theme of “It was so much better in the old days” comes up. Then someone points out that there were stupid questions then, too, and changes that have been made are awful until you get used to them. If it’s so awful, why did you come back? Why bother to post a Q like this?

Seelix's avatar

Not at all. What’s the “new” Fluther?

wilma's avatar

Plaid pants I tell you!
It’s Plaid Pants.

Well, you’re just so charming, I really hope you stay to contribute more! ~
Now to the important stuff. I had the most awesome chili omelette for breakfast!

Oh, this is just silly.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Yeah, I’m sure, considering your attitude on this thread, that that’s a good link.

HEY! JilltheTooth is NOT an asshole! But I am.

This question is about to disappear because you’re acting like a complete douchebag. Before it gets modded off though, let me offer up a huge “Welcome back to fluther! May the door smack your ass painfully on your way out!”

JilltheTooth's avatar

Thanks, Chocolate! Actually, I’m not angered, just a bit irritated by juvenile disgruntled former users. I’m kinda disappointed that none of you have taken up the food gauntlet I threw down…what’s Fluther coming to when we can’t use these idiotic threads for our personal culinary gratification???

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I’m more disappointed that apparently there is yet another user who is too fucking chicken to say something like this, without using their regular account.

I’ll take you up on the food, though. We’re having lasagna, wanna come over?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Damn right! I’ll bring the wine and pick up some cannolli from the bakery down the street…with or without chocolate chips?

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@JilltheTooth Omg. Chili omelette??? That sounds so good. If I weren’t having dinner in 30 minutes, I’d soooo run out and get the fixins for that.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@MyNewtBoobs ; What’s for dinner? Bring it on over to @WillWorkForChocolate‘s where we’ll get a full-on pot luck going!

Nullo's avatar

You’re just grousing now? Four years is a long time, here on the Internet. I’ve seen websites rise and fall in shorter spans.
I’ll grant that I don’t much like the use of the terms “Social” and “General,” but that’s because every other online community in the universe uses “General” for their social stuff.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@JilltheTooth WITH chocolate chips, of course? Did you really have to ask? :P

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@JilltheTooth Dunno yet. It’s over at my dad’s – my grandma died, so we’re doing dinner in lieu of a wake or funeral. But he always makes really fabulous, terrific food (ok, except for when he’s learned a new technique that someone in Italy or France or Spain told him is the key to making amazing, authentic Italian/French/Spanish food, and then he really screws it all up). So I’m pretty hungry.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Nullo : Food, please.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Look, if we’re gonna have a lot of people showing up, I’ve got the fixin’s for Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas, too. The lasagna’s done. The garlic bread is in right now. Let me know if I need to throw those enchiladas together.

P.S. Somebody bring rum!

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate No. I’ve had rum for the past 3 days. I need a new booze. Perhaps vodka or gin.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Yes! Enchiladas! Mount Gay Rum on the way…

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Enchiladas, check. Rum, check.

I’ll run out and grab some Grey Goose for the Boobs.

Oh shit, I said boobs. Where’s Zen when you need him?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Middle of the night where he is. I hope you didn’t wake him up with the magic summoning word…

filmfann's avatar

I have been on this site for just under 2 years, so I am not an old-timer on this site, but I have seen it change a bit.
The reasons I love this site are still here, and that’s why I am still here.

Berserker's avatar

I don’t see much of a difference, but I’ve been here for a little over one year. :/ We do seem to get a lot more new members though, probably due to the Twitter affiliation.

wilma's avatar

@MyNewtBoobs so sorry about your grandma.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

I love that I’m now being referred to as “Boobs”. I know tons of women would hate that, but I’m just not one of them.

@wilma Thanks, it’s been harder than I thought it would.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate: Grey Goose? How quaint!~ Try for a nice liquer. How about some disaronno? I bet it would be divine with a splash of some kind of chocolate liquid. I’m thinking for something a little lighter, chocolate flavored soda, disaronno and a maybe a dash of mint flavoring with a sprig of mint as a garnish. Shit. I’m gonna try that!

@fujivelo: Here is a question for you. If you hate the site so much and have been gone for so long, why did you come back just to tell us all how much you hate the site?

JilltheTooth's avatar

@KatawaGrey : Just FYI, Tina, at Cafe, makes her own Bailey’s. It’s fabulous!

wilma's avatar

Boobs, how would you like a nice hot chocolate with some Buttershots? It’s my favorite!

I’‘l bring some salsa salad with chips!

Dog's avatar

I am only here for the chili.

janbb's avatar

Just had some leftover London Broil with mushroom gravy. Yum!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@fujivelo, what is so hard about proper grammar that one small correction makes you “hate” this wonderful site? Are you illiterate, or do you just not care? True, we have lost some good users, but mindless criticism will not bring them back.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@MyNewtBoobs : Here ya go, sweetie, to tide you over.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I think @fujivelo‘s just trolling, but what a lovely opportunity for menu planning!

Response moderated (Personal Attack)
WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@KatawaGrey I’m not sure why, but I really like the Grey Goose!! I’m open to new things, though, and that chocolate Disaronno with mint sounds lovely!

seazen_'s avatar

OK. I’m awake now. So wassup?

wilma: is this a plaid pants?

incendiary_dan's avatar

hobbitsubculture and I had pancakes earlier, and then I made fried rice with smoked pork shoulder and a bunch of veggies.

Edit: I tried to make one of the pancakes into the shape of a turtle. It failed pretty horrifically.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@seazen_ Fluther potluck at my house- I’ve got lasagna and sour cream chicken enchiladas over here. Rum, vodka, and other choice liquors will be involved, and in case you didn’t notice, I said boobs just a few minutes ago. Are you in?

JilltheTooth's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate: Nice use of the summoner. I hope he doesn’t have to operate heavy machinery in the morning!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@JilltheTooth It’s ahhhhmazing what you can accomplish with boobies.

tranquilsea's avatar

I stay for the people not the format.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Boobies and food. Need I say more?

chyna's avatar

Don’t hate.
Peanut M&M’s for dinner tonight. Yay!

seazen_'s avatar

Make it so.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@seazen_ Bring some chinese food, would ya? I’m craving Kung Pao.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@chyna : There you are, Sweetie! Peanut M&M’s for dinner? Good protein, that!
<slaps @seazen_ > Focus there, fella!

seazen_'s avatar

Klingons to the left of me, jokers to the right here I am…

JilltheTooth's avatar

BBQ spareribs for me, please, Zennie. Please. Thankyou. Please.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Boobs, Zen, and fooooood. The only thing that could make this thread any better would be Johnny Depp joining the site and offering sex in return for chocolate…....

chyna's avatar

BBQ my chicken for me. I prefer the breast meat. :-)
Setting @seazen_ off again!

tranquilsea's avatar

I’ve a hankering for strawberry shortcake. Homemade not the store bought stuff. I can bring it :-)

JilltheTooth's avatar

I love our new Fluther game. Summoning Zennie out of sleep with the “B” word. hee hee hee

seazen_'s avatar

Keeping abreast of the situation, the captain calmly orders data to take them out of here. engage.

talljasperman's avatar

OP just deleted himself

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@seazen_ Breasts. Boobs. Boobies. Jumblies. Tatas. Cupcakes.

Someone should go check out that “thump”, I think Zennie just fell out of his chair…

seazen_'s avatar

Catch you all later ladies. Exiting.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Oooh, Zennie, you’re making me swoon!

chyna's avatar

Lurves the Depp!!

seazen_'s avatar

Yes, I do have that effect on women.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Zennie changed his avatar to Johnny just to tease me! That’s so WRONG! OH MY GOD, DON’T STOP ZENNIE!

seazen_'s avatar

I have to go, ahem, take care of some things. I’ll leave him on til I return. Ciao.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@talljasperman : The account is still there. Ah, well. I’ve noticed a few times recently that accounts are jumping in and out.

Dog's avatar

Dog guiltily looks around. It was an accident. I swear.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Darling Zennie, you leave yours up and I’ll leave mine up. Oh dear… I think ima hafta paste that picture of Johnny on my desktop…

chyna's avatar

@Dog Do you need to tell us anything? Hm?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@Dog What’d you do? Dum dum dum!

Dog's avatar

That little button… and a sensitive touch screen. I did not even realize I had accidently nuked him. He is back. I am so ashamed.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Touch it again! Touch it again! And then you should probably mod this comment of mine cuz it’s kinda mean, huh.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

My husband keeps wandering in to see why I’m laughing so hard. I think he’s concerned about my sanity at this point…

Edit: @chyna has it right below me.

chyna's avatar

@JilltheTooth In and of itself, it actually sounds kinda dirty!

JilltheTooth's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate : I’ve never been concerned about your sanity. I kinda figured it’s been gone for awhile. ;-)
I should send a PM to the OP, I’m racking up a pile of lurve on this thread!

@chyna : That’s the “Depp Effect” kicking in…

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@JilltheTooth Well, you may be on to something.

Dog's avatar

@JilltheTooth I have accidentally done it before but I always caught it right away and reinstated the user before anyone noticed including the OP. This time I did not realize till I got the mod mail. Really we try to at least warn a user first. :/

JilltheTooth's avatar

We’ll just call it an Act Of Dog, then. hee hee hee
Confirming your divinity.

YARNLADY's avatar

New? What? Did I miss something again?

Aethelwine's avatar

@YARNLADY Yes. The seats are smaller and we have to pay for pillows now. Can you believe it!?!

KatawaGrey's avatar

@seazen_: Klingons to left of me, jokers to the right, here I am. Stuck in the middle with Q…

@WillWorkForChocolate: Okay, so I just mixed something up that I like to call a peppermint patty. I mixed up equal parts heavy cream and chocolate soda with a drop of peppermint extract and a shot of Disaronno. It is the most delicious alcoholic beverage I have ever tasted.

YARNLADY's avatar

@jonsblond I am small enough to not even notice that sort of thing, and I always bring my own pillow.

cak's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate crazy, mad lurve for your comments on here, especially much higher in the thread. I love when someone stands up for another person.

kevbo's avatar

omg is that you @oneye1?—“I just want too express my vews is that wrong?!?!”

hahahaha!

seazen_'s avatar

GOOD NIGHT ALL MY LURVELY JELLS.

Take us out. Engage.

wundayatta's avatar

I tried to make these french pancakes this morning. They said that you shouldn’t stir them much—the lumps would take care of themselves. Well they didn’t take care of themselves, so I had to stir more and I don’t know what would have happened if they had been stirred properly. But I still liked them. I think my kids would have like fluffier ones better although I made a double recipe and I think my son ate about half of them, and he’s only 11. He was the one who asked for them, anyway. I guess he really wanted them.

Yeah, the place is not as good as it was, but so what? It’s good enough.

YARNLADY's avatar

Oh, NO, I just dropped half of tonight’s dinner on the floor while I was trying to package it up for tomorrows lunch. That lucky dog, Toby ate the carrots, tomatoes and even the onions. I wiped up the the juice. Thank goodness the poached salmon was wedged in the container and didn’t come out, so I was able to pack the wild rice on top of it.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Dammit, Zennie took away my Depp! <cries>

@cak Well, we all have mad lurve for @JilltheTooth. It was the least I could do. Besides, I wasn’t really outing myself anyway, since everyone already knows I’m an asshole! Teehee!

SpatzieLover's avatar

I come back daily for the pancakes.

Anyone want some popcorn??? ;0D

YARNLADY's avatar

@SpatzieLover Thank you for the offer, my husband just asked me the same thing, but I’m having nachos instead.

Is anyone else watching Jurassic Park on TNT right now? It’s 10 pm Pacific Daylight Savings Time here.

augustlan's avatar

ucme's avatar

Ahh bless, 3 GQ’s were given out. Seems a bunch of backward thinking lurkers agree with the principle. Hilarious!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Maybe they’re just thrilled about the yummy content of the thread?

janbb's avatar

English muffin or yogurt and fruit for breakfast?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Thinking I’ll go with an egg sandwich with a bit of cheddar on.

janbb's avatar

Breakfast at my house anyone?

ucme's avatar

Now you’re just making a meal of it. Rumbling tummy.

janbb's avatar

@ucme You mealy-mouthed fool!

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’ll bring the mimosas!

ucme's avatar

@janbb How very dare you! I find that hard to swallow!

janbb's avatar

Aw – have a pancake to make up.

wilma's avatar

What the heck! I missed Johnny Depp!?!?!?

Did he bring pancakes?
That’s what I get for going to bed early.

Zen my darling I thought it was a plaid pants, but it may have been a whiner.

seazen_'s avatar

paid plants

JilltheTooth's avatar

Plaid Plants?

cak's avatar

I need a crash course in plaid pants. I’ve missed something, or forgotten something. That could really be the answer.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

No, 42 is the answer. Don’t you know that?

@janbb Breakfast? Sure! I’ll make Poinsettas! Just don’t invite Coloma or ucme, because they’ll make us spit the Poinsettas everywhere when they talk, and that, my friends, would be alcohol abuse.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@cak : This Q sparked this Q which sparked all the comments here… it’s a p(l)ant conflagration!

wundayatta's avatar

how long do they let these things go along before they end them?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Til the food runs out?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Or until someone runs through, naked and screaming. I nominate @JilltheTooth for that; she’s already pantsless anyway.

JilltheTooth's avatar

My toof is fully panted, thank you.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Oh my… if it feels like that, maybe you should brush.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate: She makes the best pants. She is always panted.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Is it just wrong that I’m giggling at this extended discussion of my pants? ;-)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

No. Is it wrong that since that other question, I’m imagining you fluthering without pants?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Yeah, that’s just wrong.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

<hangs head in shame>

cak's avatar

@JilltheTooth & @WillWorkForChocolate: you both just made me choke on my water!

wilma's avatar

It’s too cold to fluther pant-less now, I’ll wait until summer.

janbb's avatar

How’s about topless?

I hate it so much that I go on it everyday and answer and ask question constantly. AARRRRGGHH, stupid Fluther!!!!!1

I’m having a tuna nicoise salad. Except I pronounce it nigh-coys, not nee-swah.

Welcome back, Zennie! I’m having some chocolate, would you like some?

@WillWorkForChocolate Yes. I will even work for it.

Come on over and bring that Johnny avatar with you. I’ll get you extra special chocolate for that.

That’s OK, @marinelife , you can have mine. Apparently I’m not using them. <giggles>

@JilltheTooth Oh my God, are you pantsless again? <sigh> What are we going to do with you, young lady?

chyna's avatar

Can we all just do the nekky dance?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Well, it was fairly warm here, today…

@JilltheTooth don’t rub it in! We’re buried under a fresh foot of snow. This is just after the other 3 feet just finished melting.

Aren’t you?

Isn’t everyone?

augustlan's avatar

I had forgotten all about this question. I’m happy to report that @fujivelo is still around, and participating. I take it we’re not as bad as s/he first thought? :)

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’m still wondering who s/he was the first time around…

marinelife's avatar

Anyone spill syrup on their nekkid bodies yet?

Just a little.
