Whoo hoo @aprilsimnel!

Hey, there’s bubbler on the third floor right outside the 30K fitness room just for you!

Kardamom's avatar

@aprilsimnel Come On Down! Step on over to the TV set that we built just for you down at the ranch, ‘er I mean the mansion. Now throw on your best Laura Petrie capris and let’s get this party started. Oh, you won’t actually be starring in the show you’ll be writing it. The name of this new show is called the Fluther Chronicles. You get to decide whether it’s a comedy, a drama or a tragedy. This is your show!

Thanks for giving us all another chance to bust out the Asti Spumante and Virginia Ham!

And don’t worry if it seems like somebody is watching you (well we are) but it’s just those Northern Spys! For your baking pleasure, we’ve brought in Paula Deen, Guy Fieri and Martha Stewart to show you and the rest of us how to make a flaky pie crust! Woot!

And don’t worry about “How to talk to strangers at parties?” This is a Fluther party. Despite the fact that you may have never met any of us in the flesh, there are NO strangers at this party. Have a great time and write about it!

Maybe you could actually write a screenplay about the REAL social network that is Fluther

Congratulations on getting to 30K (I didn’t think the counter even went up that high)

AstroChuck's avatar

Welcome, Dah-ling. We only drink the finest champale from only the very best ceramic stemware here in club 30K. Not to mention Dale’s Bait Shop’s finest caviar. So I guess what I’m trying to say is CoNgRaTuLaIoNs!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Super congratulations, April! I’m not even halfway there yet. Have some champagne and chocolate, and celebrate!!!!!

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Congratulations!!! :)

SavoirFaire's avatar

Félicitations, @aprilsimnel! You’ve made it to the island! And if I recall correctly, you get your own star now as well.

But remember: it can’t be the moon.

tranquilsea's avatar

30,000! Holy Crap I usually notice when people are getting close. Congratulations to one of my favourite jellies.

wundayatta's avatar

@aprilsimnel Congratulations on 30K. It’s been really wonderful seeing your contributions to fluther.

As usual, there is some confusion about where 30K people go to. There is no mansion. It is an island. And you get your own villa and your own beach boy (or girl, if that is y our preference), and you can find a beach that fits your specifications for perfection. The drinks are free, if you’re into that, and so are other forms of mind-bending, including dancing and yoga and etc.

So welcome! I still visit every once in a while, but I prefer the calmer environment I find at 40K—in the artists colony—which is open to non-artist jellies as well, of course.

Enjoy! You deserve it!
