Intelligent and kind. @stanleybmany has been here almost two years. Shall we celebrate this milestone with him?

Well done Mr Stanley. I do enjoy your sense of humour and down to earth attitude.

Wonderful! Congratulations on the 10K. Welcome to the mansion!

I haven’t had the pleasure of making your acquaintance, but congratulations! Don’t drink the water.

Congratulations! I always enjoy what you bring to the table. Thank you for your contributions. :)

Thanks guys. I was hoping to slip past the milestone unacknowledged in order to justify the resentments accompanying my persecution complex. But alas, I am once again frustrated. Since I can’t afford an assault rifle and requisite expensive ammo, I now find myself reduced to the humiliating expedient of tormenting the neighbors’ pets. It’s been a fun time here being as mean as possible without being arrested. I love and enjoy all of you and before I leave to turn the garden hose on the dog and cat next door, remind all of you in the immortal words of Niccolo Machiavelli “it’s better to be feared than to be loved.”

Congrats because we agree so often.

Congrats! You are a great addition to the fluther seas.

Congrats to a wise, sharp witted and excellent user of the English language. Keep walking steadily like the chap in the avatar holding onto whatever that explosive might be. Don’t let it go off in the mansion! Well done.

stanleybmanly's avatar

@Jaxk you know there are probably people here convinced that the 2 of us hang around because neither of us wants to miss out on the other’s death. Well your attendance at this party once again demonstrates (to my unending irritation) that you’re a class act. I’m touched that you could forgo the joys obtained by beating your workers in order to attend the party.

Stanley be THE manly. Congrats on the 10k!

Congratulations @stanleybmanly! I was glad you stayed in the lagoon and have been a great contributor to our little community. Let’s get this party started!

Jaxk's avatar

@stanleybmanly – Ooh that’s harsh. Give me credit for being able to multitask.

Coloma's avatar

Stan the man, congrats on your 10k. Fellow scrabble pal and great addition to the pod.
You are even tempered, level headed and look dashing in that top hat.

Congratulation! You say you are always complaining, but I don’t see it that way. I see it as “contructive criticism”. You don’t complain based on your emotion alone, but you have good reason for the complain too.

ibstubro's avatar

Congratulation, @stanleybmanly.
We’ve come a long way my friend. From the stagnant cesspool that Askville had become across the sometimes turbulent waters to finally settle in the gentle tidepool of Fluther. I’m glad you made it here, pleased you stuck it out.
Fitting that @Here2_4 should throw your party and @Jaxk try to throw a little cold water on it.

Well done, old man, well done.

Coloma's avatar

So if I offer up @stanleybmanly a little mermaid party favor am I risking giving an old guy a coronary? lol
Mermaids for all the men.

Coloma's avatar

Well poo, my link didn’t work and that remarkable edit feature failed, again.
Soory men, you get teased by the thought of a mermaid. haha

ibstubro's avatar

No sense stressing the ole ticker, @Coloma, @stanleybmanly will probably like this just fine.

stanleybmanly's avatar

@ibstubro You know I was around when that film was made, and Esther, bless her soul, winked out just last year. And @Coloma you see my luck still holds up. As I panted in anticipation over some juicy water porn, I clicked on your link and got that youtube frowny face. So, once again the gods have spared me a coronary episode. I’m getting maudlin and throwing a wet blanket on the party. Sorry guys, but I read something a moment ago that really brought me down. I have to leave now and pretend to work. You know, i didn’t quite realize how attached I have become to all of you. Please party on. Like a bad cold, I’ll be back.

Way to hang in there bro!

Congratulations, dear sir! In my head, you are always “dear sir.”

Buttonstc's avatar

Good for you. Congratulations!

Strauss's avatar

congrats to you, Stanley. ‘Tis a manley thing to accomplish.

Coloma's avatar

Stanley….where for art thou? The guest of honor has left his own party. Party pooper man!

LuckyGuy's avatar

@stanleybmanly Congrats on the well deserved 10k! I can’t help but think of a right proper gentleman when I see your avatar. Pip Pip and all that.
Carry on!
Tea will be served later.

Coloma's avatar

Pip pip and cheerio!

stanleybmanly's avatar

You know it’s funny, but for some reason it never dawned on me that my fop of an avatar might be English. I just grabbed it for its contradictions. I’d actually thought it was a spoof of a gilded age American fat cat circa 1900. The logo itself was the stylized insignia of an American bombing squadron in WW I

Coloma's avatar

@stanleybmanly It totally reminds me of the banker in Monopoly. haha

stanleybmanly's avatar

Yeah me too! And I always thought him American as well.

ibstubro's avatar

I always thought the thumbnail view could be W.C. Fields, hence the quote.

jca's avatar

Stan the Man! I’m late to your party but I’m here! I hope you keep up your wonderful Fluther participation! Welcome to the Mansion and have a drink on me. I just bought some bourbon to make bourbon apple cake (NY Times recipe). I’ll bring some to your party.

longgone's avatar

I’m late, but I brought candy floss. Congrats, happy to have you in the mansion!

SQUEEKY2's avatar

Way to go Stan, good for you.

ibstubro's avatar

The pressure’s on, Squeeky. lol

Blondesjon's avatar

Super late here but I do love the avatar @stanleybmanly .

I’m so glad your contributions here validate that love. Congratulations!
