Cheers to you, Aethelflaed! I don’t know how to pronounce your screen name, but I can say “Congratulations”!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Wait! How did I miss this? I was so busy making arrangements for that other party!
Well, Aethelflaed, we’ve certainly had some rocky times, you and I, but we seem to be weathering those with a certain amount of civility, and, I feel, a burgeoning friendship. I still reserve the right to whap you with my Nerf Bat, but I appreciate your intelligence and lucidity.

LO, praise of the prowess of jelly-kings
of word-armed Flutherites, in days long sped,
we have heard, and what honor the athelings won!
Oft Aethelfled the Fluth from squadroned foes,
from many a tribe, the mead-bench tore,
awing the earls… fate repaid her:
for she waxed under welkin, in wealth she throve,
till before her the jells, both far and near,
who mansion by the whale-path, heard the Jell’s mandate,
gave her lurve!
Congratulations on 10K!

ETpro's avatar

All Hail the fair and true @Æthelflæd oh Lady of the Mercians. daughter of Ealhswith and Ælfrēd the Great. Gah! You people have such cool names.:-)

Congratulations and I hope the mansion will have a bit in common with your royal palace.

ZEPHYRA's avatar


Aethelflaed's avatar

@all THANKS!!!!! XD

And, should you be in the mood for reading a short Wikipedia bio on my name, hereÆthelflæd. Aethelflaed, Lady of the Mercians, is daughter of King Alfred, wife of Ethelred (not the Unready, but related), and eventual ruler of kingdom of Mercia. In a vast historical simplification, she is the closest thing to a queen England has before Elizabeth. Also, should you not know how to pronounce my name, I respond rather well to Ethel (like, “and Lucy” or “Merman”), or AE.

@ETpro Wow, you not only know who I am, you did it with proper characters and everything. That is dead sexy right there.

@fundevogel That’s ok, I don’t know how to pronounce your name, either, except “totally kicking it”.

Aethelflaed's avatar

Damn, I always forget that Fluther won’t recognize the Æ as part of the link. Ok, try this.

jazmina88's avatar

I congratulate Thee!

augustlan's avatar

[mod says] References to @Aethelflaed‘s old name removed at her request. Let’s keep it on the down low, guys!
