Can you rise your Avtomat Kalashnikova for a 21 gun salute, and get your butts down to @KatetheGreat’s 10k target range?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26811points) July 14th, 2011

Clean your AK, SIGs, or FN FNCs and make you way to one of the sweetest women to grace a 10k mansion. Can you shoot straight? Can you drink a lot of Earl Gray tea? Can you chow down on a lot of cake? If you can, get over here before the shooting starts.

Félicitations, @KatetheGreat! One more soldier in the zombie-killing army!

Once upon a time, there was a sad little Russian jellyfish. She wandered the earth searching for her lost clan, while singing sad arias quietly to herself.

Years went by, until… one February day, she thought she heard the voices of others calling her name and luring her into the water. The voices grew louder and became cheers of joy….

Our little sister has found us!

Hurray for KatetheGreat!

Congrats, Kate! You certainly live up to your username. :D

KateTheGreat's avatar

@SavoirFaire Heck yeah! Let’s kick some zombie ass!
@Blueroses Honey, you’ve been one of my greatest friends here since I joined. You were the first one to talk to me and treat me like I was at home! I lurve you to death!
@augustlan Thanks dear! You mean so much to me! :)

Bellatrix's avatar

YAY! The guitar playing, gun toting, genius with a wonderful sense of humour and a beautiful temperament is in the mansion. There will be no dog house for you, you will move straight to one of the luxury suites I am sure! Well done you super fast, lurve magnet :D And don’t be messing with the cat….

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Bellatrix Aww, lovely. Thank you! I’ll be sure to save a room for you right beside mine!

Bellatrix's avatar

Thank you, then you can teach me to strum (with Fiddle who is also listed down for guitar lessons).

bob_'s avatar

Congratulations, nicely and promptly done! :D

Plucky's avatar

Big Congratulations to you @KatetheGreat!! I shall strum a song for you. :)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Gongrats girl!! You know I am one of your biggest fans, thank heavens to @Blueroses rifle jamming, shows it pays to keep your weapon clean, I got the honor of cutting the ribbon to your personal firing range and giving you the 1st box of ammo. It is a secret but I even have you a .50 cal rifle stashed at the back if the 8 car gerage. [wink wink]

Rifle jamming, ha ha, “I swear this never happens!” Credit to our new jelly-friend @Schroedes13 for giving our Kate the boost to help me but @Hypocrisy_Central, you won fair and square. If not me, it had to be you. Get you next time, Gadget.

Shit. That was a lot to write. I just woke up, so if it’s weird or anything, that’s your reason! Thank you all very much!

OpryLeigh's avatar

Congratulations. For some reason I thought you were already here though!! When I saw ”@KatetheGreat is in the 10K club” on my feed I thought to myself “again?”

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Mariah Thank you very much, dear! You’re not late! I really love having you around here. You’re great!

incendiary_dan's avatar

Praise whatever and pass the ammunition! Good job. Does this mean we get a shooting range at the mansion now?

KateTheGreat's avatar

@incendiary_dan Hahahaha, that was great. Thank you. And yes. We get a shooting range with moving targets (ethical ones, of course :/) and we get a giant gun cabinet with separate compartments for your’s, Fiddle’s, and my guns. Also, unlimited ammo!


incendiary_dan's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Normally I say they’re a waste of ammo, but if we don’t have a limited supply…

KateTheGreat's avatar

@incendiary_dan Waste of ammo? Yes. Tons of fun? Hell yes.

rOs's avatar

I’ll just shoot my pea-shooter here at the 1K shanty : /

marinelife's avatar

Congratulations, @KatetheGreat! It seems like only yesterday that you first came. A quick rise to the mansion indeed.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@rOs It’s okay, I’ll come visit you at your shanty and shoot my marshmallow shooter with you!
@marinelife Thank you very much! I’m glad that a seasoned Flutherer like yourself joined in on the party!

incendiary_dan's avatar

@rOs I’ll bring the slingshots and blowguns. I was surprised the range blowguns can get firing a chickpea.

etignotasanimum's avatar

Congratulations!!! Just so you know, I’ve added something new to my bucket list: go to a shooting range with @KatetheGreat and learn how to use a gun. It’s right underneath my wish to meet David Bowie. :)

DrBill's avatar

Congratulations my friend

KateTheGreat's avatar

@etignotasanimum I’ll teach ya how to do it right! I’ll make you one deadly son of a gun!
@DrBill Thank you very much.

rOs's avatar

@KatetheGreat Perfect! Please bring extra marshmallows, the shanty has scarce resources.

@incendiary_dan Just be careful with the darts, I had to pull one out of my neck in middleschool!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@rOs Pss! I’ll sneak you into the mansion at night, if you wish. I’ll give you the marshmallow supply to bring back to the shanty.

geeky_mama's avatar

Congratulations on this milestone @KatetheGreat – love reading what you have to say. You are wonderful and bad-ass in the best possible way. :)

Cruiser's avatar

@incendiary_dan WTH did they do to the one @lucillelucillelucille and I built last year?? I’ll be pissed if they turned it into a wading pool or something pansy fancy!!

@WillWorkForChocolate Hey baybayyyyy! I love you too. Can we bathe in chocolate? Hahaha, sounds DELICIOUS! Thank you very much lovey.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Mmmmmmmmmmm. Chocolate baths are fun. =0) Don’t pack any towels…. if you get my drift…... <evil giggle>

KateTheGreat's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Don’t worry, we have other ways to get the chocolate off of us! :P

Kardamom's avatar

Wow! This is going to be one heck of a party. And because you’ve been recently dining on frozen microwaved meals, we’re going to put on a magnificent feast. In the long dining room, we will have 2 long tables set up. One with vegetarian items and one with meaty stuff, so you can have your choice. I will be making This Pasta and This Soup and This Side Dish and This Salad and This Appetizer and This Dessert. Not sure what @incendiary_dan will be making for the other table.

After dinner, we shall all gather in the the brand new theater that we had built just in time for your arrival. Instead of regular hard seats, all of the chairs are big old comfy recliners with wine holders on each side. But you shall not be sitting in the audience. We have invited Andrew Lloyd Webber to come on over to the mansion and he’s brought a brand new play, that was written especially for you to star in, to sing the lead. It’s called “Kate Get Your Machine Gun” and all of the music is guitar music. We’ve invited some of the best “pickers” in the world to accompany you. We’ve got Glenn Campbell, Earl Scruggs, Neil Young, Slash, Jimmy Page, David Crosby, Tommy Crook and John Jorgenson amongst others.

And for your amusement (and ours) we’ve set up a little Fluther theme park on the grounds. One of the rides is kind of like Disneyland’s Small World, but ours looks like This and instead of having little kids singing silly songs, we’ve got animatronic versions of “less popular” but awesome bands, like “The Mountain Goats” singing awesome songs.

And for a late night snack, before you retire to your room, which is decorated in a style reminiscent of Russian royalty’s diggs, we have prepared for you a giant bundt cake that specifically looks like a baboon’s ass, only it tastes like lemon : )

Enjoy, and congratulations!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Kardamom That sounds AMAZING! You really know how to plan a party! ;) You have honestly incorporated some of my favorite things in the world into one party! Hahahaha. “Kate, Get Your Machine Gun” sounds like a fantastic play and I’m honored to star in it! I’ve never been to an amusement park, though. So you’ll have to take me around and show me where the fun is! And The Mountain Goats will be there!?!?!? I think I might just die of happiness…

Baboon ass cake is the best. Hooray! And thank you!

Buttonstc's avatar

What a wonderful addition to the collective you are. And it seems like just yesterday when you arrived.

No matter… Kate is smart, freaking cute as hell, witty, and she makes an awesome addition to the collective, and I am also quite honored to call her my real-life friend as well. Congratulations, dollface. I’m gonna go pop off a shot or two in your honor, if ya catch my drift.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Buttonstc Thank you very much, dear!
@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Awwwwwwwwwwww! Thank you! :) That really made me smile. You’re an amazing jelly and quite an amazing friend as well! A shot or two? Why so little? :P

I can’t believe I am in on the party so late, but I just lurve you to pieces! I knew you would get to the 10K before me, because your hunger for life and knowledge and people is so great, I just know your shining brain is going to do something incredible and unique and outstanding one day! I am so glad to have you close to me in our little patch of the US, and I still hope to meet soon! Congratufreakinlations, lady!

Coloma's avatar

“Na zdorovye!”

Is that Russian for “congratulations”?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Вы такая прекрасная молодая женщина с большим сердцем.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Brian1946 No, it’s “cheers.”

@Hypocrisy_Central You flatter me.

Berserker's avatar

Break out the vodka! :D Congratulations friend. :)

Now I’ve already told you, but one thing I’ve noticed about you, is how awesome your questions are. You have so many, and every time I think you can’t come up with anymore, you surprise me again. They’re all so down to earth, and so extremely interesting. You sure know how to keep it real, and I love it. Fluther should give you some extra privileges, and let you ask more questions per day.
I can tell you’re extremely wise and capable too, and I’m jealous that you travel so much. Anyways, I really value your presence here, so don’t leave, or I’ll kill myself.

Nice work, cheers and all, and much happy fluthering for you in the future.

PS; I like your forehead tentacles.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Symbeline Awwww :) Thank you very much dear! I wish I could drink some shots with you right now! That was very sweet and thoughtful of you!

Wanna sneak over to my new room so we can try out the tentacles? I’ll be gentle ;)

Berserker's avatar

@KatetheGreat You can be rough if you wanna. :D Lol I just learned that a few people wanted to do this question. We’re all fighting over you. :D

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Symbeline Okay. I’ll stick my tentacles in places you never knew about! And was there someone else that wanted to do it? I know that Roses and HC were fighting over it last night like it was war!

Berserker's avatar

Well them, and me. ^^ But i was at work for like 14 hours so…and yes, make me discover my new orifices. XD

KateTheGreat's avatar

Oh baby! I have so many tricks up my sleeve!

I’m so, so happy to welcome you to the Mansion, @KatetheGreat! And I’m so, so happy to see that everyone else lurves you as much as I do. You’ve quickly made yourself a staple of this place, and you’ve quickly made it a more fun place to be. I lurve you tons, little sis!

HungryGuy's avatar

Hey Kate! Congrats to you, too, for getting in the mansion. Sorry for the belated post, I saw you were in the mansion when I came back l a few days ago, but I’d been away from Fluther for a while (got sick of all the flame wars and had to take a prolonged break) and had to wait until I stumbled upon this thread…

I bet you celebrated by drinking a bottle of Vodka :-p

@HungryGuy Thanks! I drank two bottles! ;)
