Congrats, lead the parade on into the mansion. There are enough cat lovers in here to take of the mice problem.

Parade ala Carnivale! Yey, nudes! ( Or almost nude. With feathers. Golden feathers. Heh. )

CONGRATS! ******

Congrats! I’ve been house hunting and it is a killer. You are so lucky to be moving into the mansion. Can I come too. I ‘m a few points shy but I just want to stop house hunting. :)
Well even if I can’t yet. Enjoy. You well deserve it!
@Judi LOL, I thought so too.

Woo! Congrats Pie! <3 <3 <3
Love seeing you around the site, you’re a definite fave :D

augustlan's avatar

You give great answer, baby. Congrats on a well-deserved achievement!

Kayak8's avatar

PP: You truly are one of my favorite folks in these parts. I always read every word you write and I love the thoughtfulness of your comments, suggestions, ideas, etc. It is no surprise that you have been rewarded with lots of Lurve from many other Jellies too! Long, long ago, the GA’s I give to just about everything you write stopped counting, but I will keep at it, because I so appreciate what you have to say!

MilkyWay's avatar

Kardamom… kardamom!!??

Kardamom's avatar

Dearest, you have been one of my favorite Jellies from the very beginning, especially because you like talking about food and England, 2 of my biggest passions.

Of course we’ll be planning a big feast, but while some of the other Jellies carry your luggage upstairs, I want to give you a big glass of This. When I drink this every day, it does wonders to help control the hot flashes.

The contractors were here for the last 2 weeks remodeling the bathroom in your room, because you know you will eventually have to poo, but we won’t get into any details about bowel movements. Just check out your new Loo

Now onto the feast. Help yourself to some of these Appetizers or These Hors d’oevres or even These

If you’re thirsty, help yourself to one of These Lovely Cocktails

For salads we have this Greens Salad with Fried Egg or this Lebanese salad called Fatouche and a lovely Cold Asian Noodle Salad and this light Cucumber Melon Salad

We have 3 soups to choose from Butternut Squash Soup served in a pumpkin, or you might like MexicanTortilla Soup or even Indian Mulligatawny Soup

We thought we’d go international with the entrees, so we have a nice selection of items including Chiles Rellenos with Mole Sauce and a mouthwatering Citrus Soy Salmon over Wilted Greens and for something a little different, you might like this Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Lemons and Olives. Then we’ve got French Duck Confit and Spanish Paella for you seafood lovers and Channa Masala over Basmati Rice for a little Indian adventure, plus good old Macaroni and Cheese with Black Truffle from the US of A.

And for dessert we have prepared for you, This Chocolate Delight and this Lemon and Berry Pleaser and This Caramel Pie

Since all of this is so fancy, we spruced up the Fluther Cafeteria so it now looks like This

Congratulations on your 20K : )

Bellatrix's avatar

No wonder you have so many loving followers, you are the fabulous @Pied_Pfeffer! Well done wonderful jelly. Lead us in a congo line to the mansion, those of us who can’t come in will party in the garden for you.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone for the recognition, especially @mazingerz88 for hosting this.

There is so much I have learned from being a member here on Fluther. Whether it is a matter of busting some old myths, being exposed to topics never encountered, or just hearing about others’ perspectives, it is all valuable. I just hope that some of my interaction has been able to pay it forward to others.

@Mama_Cakes Right back at ‘cha. I hope to someday talk you into heading my way to provide some interior design advice. I admire your style.
@Adirondackwannabe The career in pest control took on another meaning when I joined Fluther. Just ask any moderator how much I flag spammers. :) Every time you post about your neck of the woods, it brings back fond memories of visiting there as a child.
@mazingerz88 Our inquisitive Jelly friend…some day, you will have to enlighten us about what you do with all of the information collected by your questions. In the meantime, beads and boas for all!
@Lightlyseared Thank you! May we some day meet in person for a cuppa on British soil.
@Judi Girl, you have been a member twice as long as I have. Doesn’t time fly? Just promise us that you won’t leave. Your insight on so many subjects is invaluable to the collective.
@erichw1504 While not a fan of sarcasm, how can anyone not laugh at your less serious posts? Thank you for all of the day brighteners.
@Pandora Technically, 20K is a move out of the mansion and into the castle. I’ll see if there are two rooms on the same floor for us. We can use two tin cans and a bit of string to secretly plot out some pranks.
@WestRiverrat Thank you friend. The green snake avatar has become a symbol of logic in my book.
@zensky I suspect that much credit for this milestone is due to you and you and you…Morph all you want, but it wouldn’t be Fluther without your essence. You know when to be serious and when to play. That’s a rare characteristic and one that is valued.
@Trillian Who is catering? I have no clue. If need be, I’m sneaking over to Coloma’s for some cheese and wine. Care to join me? In the meantime, thank you for the insights you have shared. Specifically, one documentary.
@creative1 Thank you for the kind words. More importantly, thank you for the the insightful answers.
@marinelife Oh, how I love that starfish avatar. It always precedes a solid opinion.
@_Whitetigress Thank you. Fluther is lucky in that you have hung on in your short time here. The questions you ask cover a wide range. I admire that in a Jelly.
@bkcunningham Thank you. You are another Jelly that I admire for the ability to be serious when need be and know when to play.
@JLeslie I look forward to your answers as well. It seems like we have the same goals in mind and just take different paths to get there. I find it enlightening to read your perspectives. May we some day meet at the local grocery store.
@jca You are too kind. Some of my answers are so way off base that it is embarrassing. Maybe you just missed them. :)
@mangeons Thank you. You are one of the members that never ceases to dazzle me with your intelligence and sense of logic.
@cprevite Thank you, my friend.
@Hawaii_Jake My hope is to one day travel to your neck of the woods. Nothing would make me happier than giving you a big hug. And eating a proper pineapple, but that comes second.
Thank you @DrBill. Fluther members benefit from your contributions. I know that I do.
@TheIntern55 Cute post! A dog’s celebration, no matter how minor, always brings a smile.
@picante Thanks friend…your post made me smile.
@syz Just keep educating us on animal behavior, and we will eventually learn that you have all of the answers.
@YARNLADY Thank you. May you never become a hotel inspector…none would pass. Just keep the ones you stay in on their toes. Your expectations are what should be the norm.
Thanks @Symbeline. You are the one we all would flock to in order to survive a zombie invasion, a.k.a. reality.
@MilkyWay Back at you! I’d attempt to fix you up with one of my single nephews, but none of them are worthy. :)
@augustlan Thank you for the compliment. It means a lot coming from you. It often feels like I fail frequently, especially after reading back on some of the posts. For me, Fluther is a place to learn, and you have not only been a great teacher, but a wonderful mentor.
@Kayak8 Your post has made me a bit weepy. You and I have such different lives, and yet there is something about you that makes me feel like you could be a lifelong friend if we were ever to meet.
@Kardamom Gracious almighty woman. There are no words to describe how fabulous that post is. All I can say is that you have been an inspiration in many ways here on Fluther. The culinary tips rank top, but it doesn’t stop there. Thank you.
@filmfamm Another thank you for furthering my education. You have such insight on many topics that are not my forte, and probably not that of others as well.
@tedibear I always enjoy reading your questions and answers. P.S How is the new job going?
@Bellatrix If there is going to be a congo line, it will be on a cruise ship over to Australia. Prepare for the invasion. Can you imagine a busload of Jellies on a trek to Uluru?

Bellatrix's avatar

I would LOVE it @Pied_Pfeffer, you start the line I will meet when you get to the Australian Coast! I will have the XXXX ready and a big pile of steak and seafood for the hungry, thirsty revellers.

wundayatta's avatar

Congratulations, @Pied_Pfeffer. It is nice to have your sensible voice around.

stardust's avatar

Congrats @Pied_Pfeffer You’re truly marvelous and you make me smile, along with many others on here undoubtedly. I’ll have a glass of red in honour of you tonight ;)

WestRiverrat's avatar

Lol @Pied_Pfeffer My college logics professor would disagree with you. He said I had the most illogical logic he had ever encountered.

But he did give me an A because he said it usually worked.

LuckyGuy's avatar

As usual, I am late to the party. I hope there are still some appetizers left. Where’s the warm Brie?
Congrats on the well deserved 20k!

chyna's avatar

I almost missed this party. Congrats @Pied_Pfeffer! You are very insightful and I love reading your posts. I can’t believe you weren’t already at 20K! Now lets party down and pass the cheese squares.

AmWiser's avatar

20K Congratulations!
and ditto what everyone else said.:-)
(Just followin the crowd…Just followin’ the crowd)

MilkyWay's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Any pics? They might be worthy :P

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@Bellatrix Honestly, I wouldn’t know how to pull it off. We need someone with geographical strategy to plot this maneuver out.
@Ayesha Thank you for your kind words.
@wundayatta As one of your fans, that means a lot.
@stardust I vividly remember when you joined Fluther. I am glad that you are still here. Let’s meet and share a bottle of red. Anyone else interested is welcome to join us.
@WestRiverrat That is one of the factors that makes you so special.
@LuckyGuy It is never too late, unless all of the members have canceled their account. If Kardamom doesn’t have brie on the menu, I will personally whip one up just for you.
@chyna There is a song from Girl Scout days: Make new friends, but keep the old… You were here when I joined and someone worthy of following.
@AmWiser Friend, where have you been? I’ve been worried about you. Plus, I will never forget that you hosted the 10K party.
@MilkyWay A pic has been uploaded in your honor. It’s my first taste of Guinness.

MilkyWay's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer OMG, I’m so glad you misunderstood my post! Did you like it?
I meant a picture of your nephews but hey! You drinking Guinness is even better :D

Earthgirl's avatar

Congratulations! You contribute so much to Fluther. I love reading your comments and answers.
I’m in on that bottle of red you’re breaking open with stardust since you said it’s an open invite!!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@MilkyWay Whoops. Yes, I loved the Guinness, surprisingly. As for photos of the nephews, I’ll send you a PM.
@Earthgirl You are on! I adore your posts…you have that ability to think outside of the box that challenges the brain cells while still making sense.

20 K. Now thats an impressive accomplishment. Congrats to you. I’d follow you anywhere :)

ETpro's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Way to go PP. Now that you’re on my floor of the mansion, I have to ask. What’s a Pfeffer?

AngryWhiteMale's avatar

Congratulations! Quite an achievement!

harple's avatar

Aw Pie, how fabulous! Sorry I’m late, but can’t wait to meet you in person once you’ve moved over here; I already feel as though I know you a bit from our PMs. Congratulations on the very well deserved 20K :-)

augustlan's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer You have mentored me, too. I thank you deeply for it!

janbb's avatar

You toot your horn and I’ll follow you anywhere @Pied_Pfeffer !

Mazel Tov on the 20K!

prasad's avatar

You πd it! You made it! π pie Congratulations!!!

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Play that joyful tune up the driveway into the Mansion and up the second floor! We all follow in a long train. Well done!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@wilma and @tinyfaery Thank you!
@Sunny2 It’s never too late, especially for a ray of sunshine like you.
@Buttonstc That would mean that we’d be walking in circles, as I’m following you! Plus, I have a sewing basket full of buttons to entice you like catnip. :)
@ETpro Thanks for the room, dear friend. It’s good to know that you are close by. (Pfeffer is German for pepper.)
@AngryWhiteMale Thank you, and yes it is. I’m looking forward to witnessing your milestones.
@harple The feeling is mutual, dear friend. We will get together one day.
@janbb I heard that there is no flute playing allowed in the Fluther library. It will be gladly given up in order to have access to that collection. Isn’t that where I’m most likely to run into you?
@prasad Thank you my fellow course instructor. And that is the best type of pie. Anyone care for a large slice of virtual cheese cake? Zero calories!
@ZEPHYRA Now that I’m not living in the cupboard under the stairs, party in my room!

Congrats, Pied!! I am where I am now because of a small suggestion from you and am eternally grateful!! Many, many hugs!!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Ooooooh, I’m horribly late, so sorry! Congratulations to you, @Pied_Pfeffer! I heard today was National Rum Day, so I brought a truckload of it to celebrate.

AngryWhiteMale's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer, aw thanks! Will be quite a while before I have milestones around here. grin But I think joining the site was a milestone in itself. grin

Anyway, congrats again! :)

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@Leanne1986 Thank you my dentist-fearing friend.
@blueiiznh Thanks! I love your quirky questions.
@downtide We may have missed the opportunity to meet in SL, but at least we have Fluther. And some day, I hope, we can meet up in your neck of the woods. There is a UK Jelly party to still plan.
@Nullo Oh, how I appreciate your insight and how you never cease to amaze me…in a good way.
@linguaphile Thank you for allowing me to plant the seed which led to a new chapter in your life. I truly hope that all is going well for you and the children.
@WillWorkForChocolate There is a bunch of mint in the garden. How about mojitos?
@MilkyWay Ha! There is still some left. Are you of legal drinking age yet? If not, I’ll share my private stock of Ginger Beer with you.
@AngryWhiteMale You might be surprised at how quickly they come up, especially with contributions like yours. I know what you mean though…I’ve learned so much from the members here.

ETpro's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer How cool then. Sneeze! It is a great pun on the Pied Pipper.

rooeytoo's avatar

I’m late and why didn’t this show up in my questions for you???

Nonetheless congrats, felicitations and good on ya my Pied Pfriend!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@ETpro This is not to intentionally cause embarrassment, but a matter of being humble. ‘Pied’ is Italian for ‘Foot’. A member on another site where the same name was used once said, “Hello, Foot Pepper!” The member was using a translator. My sense of humor is sorely lacking, but I couldn’t help but laugh at this.

@rooeytoo Some of the Meta questions don’t show up on my radar either. I have no clue how it all works. The bottom line is that you are here now. Thank you for the recognition. While our lives are quite different, there are similarities that have come to light through the exchange of postings. We may be half a world away from each other, but Fluther has allowed us to meet virtually. I am thankful for that.

downtide's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer I do hope I can meet you in “real life” sometime.

MilkyWay's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Well, I can if you buy me some :D

flutherother's avatar

20.115Kongratulations @Pied_Pfeffer. Better late than never I hope. (How did I manage to miss this??)

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@downtide Meeting you would be an honor (or is it honour?).
@MilkyWay Not without a permission slip from your parents.
@flutherother You are always a welcomed face avatar to any Fluther gathering.

Coloma's avatar

What the fluther!!!

How DID I miss this party!
Clearly the Pied Pfeffer needs a new flute as this little rodent missed the tune.
I must have been holed up in my nest eating cheese or something. lol
Congrats to you PP, it is always a pleasure to share in your sharings!

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@Coloma No worries. We just assumed you were hot-tubbing it with Marwyn and a glass or two of wine and didn’t want to be disturbed. Did you happen to bring any brownies?

Coloma's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer I owe you at least a dozen, hang up your horn and get in the hot tub and I’ll serve you up a pleasant valley Sunday! :-)

AngryWhiteMale's avatar

You are very gracious, @Pied_Pfeffer! Thanks once again for your kind comments, and congratulations once again! :)
