Can you get out your water hose and douse a newest member to the 30k club with lurve?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26837points) July 21st, 2011

Yup, JLeslie has made it and well deserved too. A jelly highly opinionate but never imitated, that really keeps me on my toes. Can you bring your hoses? There are plenty of places to hook up and there are a lot of flowers here. If you can’t come, can you send roses and sunflower seeds?

The steaks are grilling; there is an Olympic size pool and an assortment of swimwear. Who does not like streaks and swimming? For vegans we have something for you too.

Very nice @JLeslie!! Congrats on the 30 Grand my Jelly friend! A tune for you

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I am not suppose to say but it has its own private dungeon off the wine cellar, and every Sunday morning Gordon Ramsay is flown in to cook up a mean breakfast spread. Plus, there is a secret vault in back of the media room with antique gold jewelry. It is our Fluther secret, do NOT tell JLeslie anything about it yet.

@FutureMemory I am convinced @Hypocrisy_Central meant “Streaks”, as in streaking, and not Steaks. We all know how he likes his meat.

Is JLeslie an alternate spelling of Jealously?

Kudos regardless!

Hey JLeslie! Way to go girl! We are going to throw you the most fabulous, fancy dinner party of all time and you will not have to lift a finger or bring anything. We’re going to do it all, just for you. Not only will there be paella we will be flying in Giada de Laurentis and Emeril LaGasse to make the paella! And you won’t have to worry about borrowing extra chairs or dishes, or worrying about people breaking your lamps or spilling stuff on your rug. Because your dinner will be held in the great hall at the mansion which kind of looks like This And you won’t have to worry about your hubby running out to show some dude his car or motorcycle, because you will both be whisked away from your home to the mansion in a limo and your hubby will be dressed up like this and will not be allowed to leave. Afterwards you can go swimming, or take a hot jacuzzi bath for 2 or come down to the outdoor dance floor and get down to boogeying, but you will NOT have to clean up. Congratulations!

@filmfann I was astonished at that too!

@filmfann I don’t even know what that means!

Coloma's avatar


it means, this party needs more guests to give lurve points!

Schroedes13's avatar

@Coloma but I’ve already been giving out a horse cart full of lurve!

Me too…I just put an apple in your cart! :-D

Great job @JLeslie. You are one the most consistently helpful and intelligent jellies in the lagoon. I know your answers will always be thoughful and sincere and I’m convinced that your persona here is exactly how you’d be in real life – which is nothing short of wonderful.

Take a victory lap my dear.

Coloma's avatar

Does the mansion have a cemetary if us middle agers keel over during our victory lap?

Okay…anyone over 50 has to have an EKG before they take their victory lap. lol

ETpro's avatar

Indeed, as @cprevite said, Mazle tov! on acheiving a well-deserved honor. Your gentle wisdom and powerful critical thinking skills add so much to this forum. Keep up the good work.

You have one of the most open hearts I’ve encountered. Always thinking of others. Without you, Fluther wouldn’t be the same for a lot of us!

Congrats on 30K!

JLeslie's avatar

Wow. Feeling the lurve. Thank you all so much. So many wonderful, touching, personal comments. Very appreciated. GA to all.

Cruiser's avatar

no @Coloma it means the party needs some of your home made brownies to loosen up the lurve button!! :)

mazingerz88's avatar

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen thro’ the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us as a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

( Well, don’t I just feel really triumphant for @JLeslie right now? ) : )

lillycoyote's avatar

Boy, am I ever late to this party. The food is gone, the beer is gone, all the people have gone home, the place is pitch black and I had to crawl up the lattice work and jimmy open second floor window that was wasn’t fully closed just to get in here to leave this response but I still wanted to say congratulations on the 30k @JLeslie.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@lillycoyote Go into the library, at the far book case remove the copy of Gulliver’s Travels. Flip the lever behind it and you will have a secret passage way to the wine vault. There you can help yourself to some of @JLeslie 1908 pinot noir, don’t let on I told you.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Awsome! And no, of course I won’t tell anyone, I’m pretty sure no one’s allowed to even hint that there might be secret passageways, one of them possibly leading to a wine cellar until I reach at least 20K and I’m not quite there yet. I’ll just have the one bottle and be out of here before anyone knows what happened. I have to drink the whole bottle right, and take it with me? That way @JLeslie will think she maybe she just misplaced it; she won’t be sure exactly what happened. If I have a glass and leave the rest of the bottle she’ll know for certain someone has gotten into it. I better get the wine and get out of here. Thanks again. I owe you, pal. :-)

JLeslie's avatar

@lillycoyote I will probably be oblivious, seeimg that I don’t drink wine.

rooeytoo's avatar

Congrats JLeslie, you are one of my favorites!

lillycoyote's avatar

@JLeslie You probably shouldn’t have told me that. Still, you guys might want to be more careful about locking up the place after these parties. You never know what kind of riffraff might wander in. :-)

Bellatrix's avatar

What do you like to drink @JL, just so we all know what to bring for the next @JLeslie party :-)

JLeslie's avatar

My cheat is coca-cola. I quit caffeine long ago, but when I cheat it is usually the real thing.

rooeytoo's avatar

@JLeslie – Me too, it is my favorite drink in the whole world! Nothing can match an icy cold Coke, the first drink out of the can. I try to stay off the caffeine and the sugar too, but it isn’t easy when there is coke and ice cream around!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@rooeytoo Me too, it is my favorite drink in the whole world! Nothing can match an icy cold Coke Unless it is a frosty glass of Barq’s rootbeer with a brownie, or chilled chocolate milk, when I want to keep my color up.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central – sounds good, I admit, but nope can’t compare with the icy Coke, at least to me!

lillycoyote's avatar

LOL. @JLeslie‘s party is rockin’ again, after a two week rest. It ain’t over yet. I’m going to go get @JLeslie some Coke. I’m going to stop by the Mexican grocery and get her Coke that’s not only loaded with caffeine but made with real cane sugar, forget that high fructose corn syrup nonsense, I’m getting her the real thing, and after I hand it to her, and offer up a toast, I will make my excuses and head off to the wine cellar, if anyone cares to join me. :-)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@lillycoyote Of course the party is still going. People are just starting to sober up for round two, and the band’s coke haze has subsided so they can play again.

JLeslie's avatar

@lillycoyote Mexican Coke. You definitely have gained acces to the wine cellar with that gift, even if I have to sneak you in. Can you bring me a really nice wine glass, or tall thin glass, to drink my coke? It tastes even better in a pretty glass that fits well in my hand.

MilkyWay's avatar

Hey, the party’s still going strong! :D

lillycoyote's avatar

@JLeslie Then a nice tall, thin glass you shall have. I had a feeling that if an occasional Coke was one of, or possibly your only vice, that you would be a fan of the real “Real Thing.” I don’t drink a lot of soda, if I do it’s usually ginger ale, but I really do love a Coke every once in a while, there’s nothing like it. I do prefer a soda fountain Coke though. I think it has a better “burn” or whatever you call it. Too bad I can’t get coke with real cane sugar from a fountain anymore.

JLeslie's avatar

@lillycoyote Go to the Coca Cola museum on Atlanta, best flippin’ fountain coke you have ever had! I like when the ratio is a little off, a little sweet, and perfectly cold, maybe 40 degrees and no ice.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@MilkyWay Of course it is still going strong, @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard just brought in a bucket of Cajon scrimp and the coals are hot again. @Nullo and @Cruiser are getting ready to grill them up. @rooeytoo is near passed out at the wetbar, and @mazingerz88 running around the pool on a toga.

lillycoyote's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central And what am I? Chopped liver?:-)

JLeslie's avatar

I’m so excited!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@lillycoyote When you disappeared I thought you were hunting for ice to chill the real Coke Cola with. But now that I see that hickey on your neck…..I wonder…...

lillycoyote's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central I can’t really explain that hickey. I was passed out in the wine cellar for a while. I’m not sure what happened

JLeslie's avatar


Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I think the hickey came from @rebbel after the 6th glass of 60yr old scotch that was left at the wetbar @rooeytoo missed.

JLeslie's avatar

I rarely drink, but I’ll take a shot of the scotch.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@rebbel tipped off the fact that the scotch was there, it was only for those 35k and above… you will just have to wait, or get very busy Har har har!

JLeslie's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central I think you just make up rules as you go along. I would never play a card game with you.

MilkyWay's avatar

Pardon me, but, is there any red wine left?

filmfann's avatar

Sorry, only white, and I warn you, it was used in an enema earlier.

JLeslie's avatar

Can we talk about the food? All the swimming has made me ravenous. Are the shrimp ready? I also want some grilled veggies, maybe some rice or potatoes. And, I am assuming the viennese dessert table is arriving soon?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Ask @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard, he is the scrimp expert, if he is not too balmed off moonshine and white lighting.

lillycoyote's avatar

Jeez, now we’ve got @JLeslie drinking. She’s going to have some ‘splainin’ to do in the morning, we all are. Now, about the food. I’m steaming up a batch of blue crab with Old Bay seasoning and some fresh corn on the cob if anyone’s interested. I’m serving it Delaware style, if there is such a thing, crabs in a bushel basket, plenty of them, but just putting newspapers out on the table to clean the crabs on. But I have plates too, if you need one.

And yes, @JLeslie, never fear, the Viennese desert table is on it’s way, as are the Vietnamese and the Vanuatuan and the Venetian and the Venezuelan and possibly the Vulcan desert tables as well. I couldn’t remember which one you wanted, just that it started with a V, so I was trying to cover my bases.

And it was it vampires, do you think? That good have some lasting effect that could haunt me the rest of my life, I mean my death, am I undead now? That really concerns me!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

How is @JLeslie going to get everyone to go home? There had to be at least three other parties that broke out before this one broke up. It might be like Beach Blanket Babylon, it seems to not have an end.

lillycoyote's avatar

Well, she should be pass out pretty soon, or well, asleep, at least, since she’s had that scotch and doesn’t really drink, so, I guess you and I, if you don’t mind my volunteering you will have to shut this thing down and take @JLeslie home and tuck her into bed. I’ll do that because she’d probably be uncomfortable with guy doing it but maybe not. And then, for God’s sake, make sure all the doors and window are closed and locked. That little oversight is what got this party started up again. But the desert trays aren’t here yet and I have all these blue crabs and hot buttered corn on the cob!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I’ll do that because she’d probably be uncomfortable with guy doing it but maybe not. I think my fiancée will be thinking the John Wayne Bobbitt treatment for me should I end up in that situation. Talk about roasting weenies on the grill!

lillycoyote's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Well, there’s that too, apparently. Best I take care of the tucking in for a couple of reasons then.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

I think she is snuggling up to @iamthemob while singing off key

JLeslie's avatar

@lillycoyote They would not let me have any scotch.

JLeslie's avatar

And, I don’t eat crab typically. I know I know, I am from MD so that is a bad thing to say. Anyway, maybe let’s get some steaks on the grill also. Medium please.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

You have to talk to @filmfann, he is the grillardin. Better hurry @Seelix booked the last two steaks he grilled up.
