Congratulations! 50k on the dot. That’s pretty cool.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Another jelly hit the highest milestone! Congratulations! I’m glad I’m still free enough to see you reach the bottom of the Fluther sea.

Coloma's avatar

Noooo! Well Jan, clearly your bird is older and tougher than mine by a few thousand lurve. lol
Lord, 50k, it’s almost obscene, but in a good way! Stringing up lights on the iceberg and
time to party, buckets of fish on ice and the Northern lights are glowing.
From one flappy footed friend to another, the Goose salutes the penguin!

LuckyGuy's avatar

Wowza! Congrats on the 50K!
Many of us have seen you go through major life stages and changes and you’ve helped so many along the way. Thank your for sharing and teaching us all.
Your stories resonate with others in ways you cannot imagine.

Cruiser's avatar

Congrats on the 50 grand, been fun getting to know you all these years. Watch your step outside the 50K mansion!

2davidc8's avatar

Fantastic, Pingüina!! Congratulations, enjoy your penthouse view! Wow!

(How do you do it? I’ve been here for years and am not even in the first floor yet!)

janbb's avatar

@2davidc8 Thanks. The best part of being on the fifth floor is the toboggan run outside my window. Wheeeeee!

Love_my_doggie's avatar

Madame Penguin’s getting so many upvotes in this thread, we may soon be celebrating 100K.

janbb's avatar

@Love_my_doggie Nope – none of them are upping my lurve. No worries.

Coloma's avatar

Well it took you NINE years nearly to get to this level of the mansion. Looks like I have at least 2 more years to go. I could be dead by then. haha
It was my 7th anniversary here a couple days ago.

My how time flies when your babbling away on the internet. lol

Mimishu1995's avatar

@cookieman Come back here and give me some :D

@Coloma I really hope all of you will stay alive until that day, and I will stay alive to see it. Come on, you are only 60 right? Sorry if I keep forgetting your age.

Coloma's avatar

@Mimishu1995 haha, I am 57, but might as well say 60, it’s just around the corner. Feat not, I am too tenacious to die anytime soon. :-D

SQUEEKY2's avatar

Way to go, and good luck with the retirement thing as well I am quite envious .

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Congratulations, Penguin.

janbb's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus sail up to my ice floe for a good time?

Coloma's avatar

^ Nothing frigid about that Penguin, pretty black and white there. LOL

BellaB's avatar

Congratulations @janbb ! I do love an excuse for a black tie party.

I found a great movie about your hometown

Maybe we can have a movie night? I’ll bring herring.

janbb's avatar

@BellaB Cool – in both senses of the word!

SergeantQueen's avatar

Good job, my penguin dude.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

@janbb
I’ll have to use the ice breaker, but it has a very nice lounge copied after Johnny Depp’s yacht, complete with hearth and faux polar bear rug —very good faux. Candles everwhere. All I have is Dom Perignon, Veuve Clicquot and Cristal Louis Roedere on board. All 96’s, all brut—your choice. I have a very large tin of genuine Beluga I’ve been saving for the Penguin—ripped it while doing deckwork on a Russian magnate’s yacht. We’ll try my new recipe for Tsar Crackers that I got from his cook.

That’s for starters. I tend to like to play around in the kitchen on the first date. A little sex, a little food, a little sex. First Mate Eddy will take care of the dishes and un-wreck the kitchen later. You up for that?

janbb's avatar

You had me at genuine Beluga! Bring on da fish and the rest will take care of itself!

Coloma's avatar

Fish oil massage too? Absorb those Omega 3’s while the feathers fly.
You’ll both need a bath in Dawn after this date. lol

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

And then we can finally watch Bogey and Hepburn together in The African Queen—as I promised you so long ago.

ibstubro's avatar

Wow. Quite the fete! We hope you don’t forget your little neon peons!

Dutchess_III's avatar

WOWWWWWWW!!! How does it feel @janbb, to be up there with the likes of Gailcalled and…who else has made 50? Amazing.

chyna's avatar

^@Marinelife has 60K now.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Espiritus_Corvus don’t forget me! I want to see Bogey too!

Dutchess_III's avatar

People going to start breaking our lurve!

Strauss's avatar

I’ll serenade my favorite penguin with fifty folk songs, one for each killurve! As you once told me, we old folkies need to be there for each other!

Congrats, @janbb!

janbb's avatar

Thank you @Strauss and @Dutchess_III and @ibstubro ! Thanks for coming to the party and thanks for the folk songs @Strauss !

YARNLADY's avatar

I’m kinda late to the party, but * * C * O * N * G * R * A * T * S * *

janbb's avatar

Thanks @YARNLADY . Always good to see – late or early.

Coloma's avatar

Still party time on the sunny west coast. 6 p.m. sharp and a stunning 76 degree day here.
I am walking around barefoot in my hippie skirt and tee with some barefoot bubbly twinkling in my colorful little plastic flower glass. Sitting poolside with the pussies right now. Party on Penguin!

Grab a floaty and come over for a swim. it’s a bit nippy but invigorating and besides us geese and Penguins have downy breasts to keep us warm and buoyant . lol

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Wow. Looks like you are about to get nailed pretty hard with a storm tonight, Jan. Looks like you might get a snow day tomorrow.

Everyone to Jan’s place for a relaxing night of hefty portions of Italian wedding soup, pasta seafood alfredo, Pinot Grigio, brandy and coffee, rich hot chocolate, Jan’s famous brownies, popcorn_story telling and films. Tomorrow morning it’s _pancakes for everybody.

I’ll take care of the cleanup tomorrow when the weather settles down.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I suddenly remember I should have brought some Thai food with me for Jan to try.

SergeantQueen's avatar

You guys are going to throw everyone off with the same profile pic

Who wants some snickers cheesecake?

filmfann's avatar

Incredible! Congo rats to a wonderful contributor!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Wow! Phat party!
How long can we keep it going?

stanleybmanly's avatar

Mind boggling! Congratulations on a stunning achievement!

janbb's avatar

So far it’s just rain and wind @Espiritus_Corvus – a true Nor’Easter. No snow yet which is good. But the party sounds great as I’ll be home-bound all day.

Thanks @stanleybmanly who is always dressed for my party!

Thanks @filmfann and @SergeantQueen !

And to all the @YARNLADYs, whomever they are – thanks for wearing your best party hats!

LostInParadise's avatar

Sorry for being so late. 50,000 seems so mind boggling. Congratulations!

Coloma's avatar

Okay….enough partying you guys get your ass over here and help me weed the rose garden now. I’m a sweaty mess. lol

janbb's avatar

Hey @Coloma ! You can bow out any time you want to. It’s my party and I’ll stay if I want to. You can manage your own when it comes.

Patty_Melt's avatar

I’m stayin’. Hmph.

Coloma's avatar

^ haha…yes, it’s your party and you can cry if you want to but nobody else can. lol
Okay, fine, I’ve done enough yard work, I will rejoin the party.

Coloma's avatar

Here Jan, have some kitty litter cake!

Stinley's avatar

We are dancing on the deck. Join us!

Strauss's avatar

@Coloma I bet you’re a hot mess when you’re sweaty!

Coloma's avatar

@Strauss LOL…yes, but now I am fresh as a daisy after a lovely cool shower!

zenvelo's avatar

So when you reach 50,000 lurve you are memorialized as a Monopoly token?

janbb's avatar

@zenvelo And man did it hurt being dipped in gold!

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

With the 50K and the Monopoly token, your people are making great strides waddles!

Coloma's avatar

Well then, there must be goose token to or a golden egg token. Of course maybe it should be a Penguin egg, much bigger, but might roll off the board.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

@Coloma, Monopoly now has a rubber ducky and a penguin. Sorry, geese get a goose egg.

Coloma's avatar

@Call_Me_Jay pffft! They should have contacted me first for input. P.S. edit above: “too” not “to.”

tinyfaery's avatar

How did I miss this? You are the best @janbb.

janbb's avatar

@tinyfaery Thank you dear.

janbb's avatar

^^ She’s awfully skinny for a penguin though!

cookieman's avatar

@janbb: An Atkins penguin perhaps.

janbb's avatar

^^ p’raps

Strauss's avatar

Atkins or Paleo-penguin?

Coloma's avatar

Perfect timing, the party goes on and I just cracked a Stella after a fun afternoon hangout with a friend. Party on Garth.

Strauss's avatar

Party on, Wayne!

Patty_Melt's avatar

I have pizza.

Strauss's avatar

I have beer!

chyna's avatar

I’m in! Love beer and pizza!

janbb's avatar

Can we have anchovies on one?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

I’ll bring a couple of tubes of Anchovy paste.

janbb's avatar

^^ 00h!

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Yup you can squeeze it on your flipper and put it back in the fridge. :>)

tinyfaery's avatar

Hey, I restarted the party!

Coloma's avatar

Figures the Penguin wants an Anchovy Pizza. lol

janbb's avatar

@Coloma yes, that was the point of the joke.

Coloma's avatar

^ Oh. haha

janbb's avatar

The real me likes sausage or pepperoni, green pepper and mushrooms if anyone’s ordering.

dappled_leaves's avatar

“Anchovies, anchovies, you’re so delicious. I love you more than all the other fishes.”

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Oh my, I am so late to this party. My penguin suit was at the cleaners.

Congrats on all the K, janbb!! You’re one of the reasons I come back here!
