Auk! haha get it? Our favorite flightless librarian has swum to the island! Anyone want to join me in offering a congratulatory Mai Tai to Janbb?

Asked by JilltheTooth (19777points) March 26th, 2011

30K! Wow! Here’s to our big-haired penguin who’s left the Jersey shore for sunnier climes and cabana boys!

Great work Janbb! A well deserved milestone.

cookieman's avatar

Fantastic!! I love this penguin. Such a nice lady this @janbb. And smart? Oy is she smart.

Congratulations to one of my favorite jellies. Or should I say Mazel Tov?!

Jeruba's avatar

30,000 right on the nose! What better opportunity to say how much I enjoy and admire my flightless feathered friend, whose ground speed among the stacks routinely sets records for research and retrieval. Write on, @janbb.

KatawaGrey's avatar

Congratulations janbb! I’m glad you managed to dodge the orcas to get here. :)

Btw, I was on the phone with @JilltheTooth when she asked this question and it was quite humorous when janbb crossed the line.

chyna's avatar

To one classy lady, a wonderful mom, Jersey girl, grandma and fluther friend. Congrats Jan and may you stay for 30,000 more! You have the right balance between seriousness and playfulness and I always look for your little penguin each time I’m here.

Congratulations to a wonderful jelly with ever thoughtful, helpful, common sense, well researched! responses!

marinelife's avatar

Huh! And to think I wanted to host this thread. I did not have @JilltheTooth‘s watchfulness. I just watched a movie and went to bed.

Congratulations, @janbb.You have waddled your way into the hearts of all Flutherites with your compassion, your wisdom and you sense of humor. (Who would have guessed a penguin would be so ticklish?) I am proud to call you friend.

janbb's avatar

Thanks Jellies!

Wherever I wander on the internet, I always come home to Fluther. Many of the smartest, sharpest, funniest, warmest and most grammatically fussy virtual people are here. I love the fun, the sharing, the writing and sometimes even the fights. I am sad about the many dear people who have been here and left for various reasons – and I particularly worry about sccrowell and whatthefluther.

Thanks for all the lurve. Now we’ve got all day; let’s eat and drink and horse around quietly, please.

aprilsimnel's avatar

@janbb – Yaaaay! I’m happy for you! Congrats on 30K. :D

SpatzieLover's avatar

Happy 30K to You Dearest @janbb! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

tedibear's avatar

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Many wonderful wishes to the lovely penguin lady whose answers are so often what I would have said. In fact, so often that I have even told her to get out of my head. :P You are a wondrful Jelly friend.

Mazel tov (Another reason why penguins are badass.)

cocktail recipe:
this video (started 1:00 in) as the audio +
this video as the muted visual. The David Attenborough narration is also good, for second watch.

Soupy twist!

geeky_mama's avatar

Quiet but heartfelt Congratulations on your 30K mark @janbb !

Blueroses's avatar

I was so pleased to be welcomed into Fluther by a friendly penguin and then astounded to realize that means… OMG! Penguins can type!!
Congratulations on your well-earned award.

tinyfaery's avatar

Sorry I’m late. Congrats are much deserved. You are one of my favorite Jellies.

The book-reading penguin has marched right in
She’s sporting a tux and a sweet little grin
Our “happy feet” tentacles dance for a while
As we fete this grand feat on the 30K isle

Congratulations to one of my favorite Jellies!
And I’m sorry I’m a day late ;-)

Did you guys see how @janbb celebrated? I think someone slipped something in our beautiful penguin’s drink. She went crazy last night!

cookieman's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate: That’s one happy penguin.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@cprevite Yes it is! So cute to watch!

janbb's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate You’d think I’d be thinner from all that exercise! Lurve it!

Dearest @janbb
You mean more to me
Than the DDC

You see?

rooeytoo's avatar

@janbb – you got me, I clicked on the exercise link thinking I would see the real you. I am always curious about the real you’s (as in plural of you???), hehehe, you are cute as can be!!!

bhec10's avatar


WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@janbb The link doesn’t come up for me. All I see is a gray box with an x in it!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Nope. Just a gray page with a red x in the box…

janbb's avatar

For me too now. It was working all day yesterday – perhaps that penguin is pooped now!

tranquilsea's avatar

I’m late but this totally because I’m not getting any notifications so the fluther gods.

Congratulations @janbb. I love reading your posts. You are delightful, funny and sage. Not the sage, as in: an aromatic plant with grayish-green leaves that are used as a culinary herb, native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean but as in: having, showing, or indicating profound wisdom
