Has anyone ever seen a 10K scratch pole? I can tell you @Bellatrix has a lovely one. Come over an sink your claws in, will you?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26783points) August 6th, 2011

Crykie! @Bellatrix just staggered in from the outback to her posh 10k digs. Well deserved, for a very pleasant and articulated Sheila. What shall she do after a nice soak in the custom Jacuzzi, take in a game of billiards on her slate bed billiard table, or enjoy a nice film on her 52in flat screen with surround sound in the media room?

Yay! I can’t believe you finally made it.

Oh where do I start. My lovely little Aussie :) You’ve been here for me all along and I share so many fond memories with you. You truly are one of the most honest and caring people I’ve ever had the joy of being friends with. You’re so intelligent, so graceful, and you have one of the kindest hearts around this place.

Here’s to you, my favorite Australian! Congratulations on 10k and may you be here for many more!

O’oh!! I forgot to tell you all, vegemite and hor d’oeuvre being served in the main dining hall, with Fosters, sorry, my bad.

Berserker's avatar

Congratulations Bellatrix. You’re a really good friend, and I’d like to thank you for all the PM conversations we keep having. Sorry if I’m slow sometimes. XD

Anyways, I totally love you, congratulations, and keep it up.

Oh also. A Harry Potter fan. Always a plus in my book. ^^

Cheers sweety. ’‘hugs!’’ :)

Bloody hell! You tell me I forgot to organize a Quidditch match too!?!? D’oh!!! Being an MC is hard work.

@Bellatrix doesn’t stagger, she waltzes, and BTW, congratulations, of course, on 10k, @Bellatrix!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@lillycoyote You know, an extended walkabout out there in the hot arid outback takes a toll on a person. ;-)

lillycoyote's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central My response has been edited, I should let you know that, but initially it was really just a relatively transparent attempt to celebrate @Bellatrix’s 10k with a nice version of Waltzing Matilda.

syz's avatar

Very nice! Congratulations!

Your_Majesty's avatar

Your contribution is simply magnificent! I shall dance to congratulate your victory!

rooeytoo's avatar

@lillycoyote – if you want a true aussie rendition of waltzing matilda, then have a listen to this version.

By the way, did you know that matilda refers to his swag?!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Is there a name to that big rock in back of tha kangaroo sign?

FutureMemory's avatar

Blueroses's avatar

My very favorite, favorite Bella-Jelly!! I could write a book about how wonderful it is to know you but you’d probably hand it back for editing ;)

I love your wit and your wisdom and how you let controversy roll off you like water off a platypus (they do get wet, don’t they?)

Anyway, a day without saying “hi” to my @Bellatrix is hardly a day worth getting up for.
Welcome to the mansion, my amazing friend!!

I think the “big rock” in the background in the video that @rooeytoo posted is Ayers Rock.

This is the Wikipedia article on it.

I take a little break, come back and see that I’m late to one of my favorite’s party! I’m sorry! Congrats on 10k. You are awesome to have around! I will come visit you in Australia someday! :)

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Vunessuh The party is still going on….people just don’t know, we are traveling back and forth between here and @JLeslie mansion party. @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard brought in Cajon scrimp which is being grilled as we speak. If you are nice, he might tell you were he stashed his bootlegged moonshine.

MilkyWay's avatar

Yo V, grab your spatula and get over to the BBQ grill, we need you.
Unless of course, you wanna do something else with that spatula of yours ;)

Bellatrix's avatar

Thank you @Vunessuh. You are most definitely welcome to visit me in Australia. I will make up the spare room :D
