Welcome.
Who’s bringing food?

SQUEEKY2's avatar

We may not agree on any thing political, but way to go.
Glad you have no fear of voicing your opinion.

ucme's avatar

Jolly good show old bean, you may hire our staff for the evening…for a small fee of course.

chyna's avatar

Congratulations! We never agree politically, but on other questions I feel you have some really good answers. Glad you have stuck around. Party is on!!

MrGrimm888's avatar

I’ll support him, with open arms…

Happy 10k to one of my favorite pals. I’m in awe of your patience, and admire the page long factual replies to people who just ignore it. You haven’t given up on discussions after all this time. Admirable.

Thank you all! I think this is my first surprise party. I’ve thrown them, never had one thrown at me

I know I’m often the annoying zit in some of the conversations, but I do have fun. You all make interesting chat-mates.

Thanks for helping to keep this place from being an echo chamber. Congrats!

janbb's avatar

@ARE_you_kidding_me Echo chamber? We Dems and progressives are eating each other alive! :-)

MrGrimm888's avatar

No debating, at a party!

janbb's avatar

@MrGrimm888 It wasn’t a debate, just a playful remark.

Jonsblond's avatar

Congratulations seawulf. Fluther wouldn’t be the same without you. :)

MrGrimm888's avatar

@janbb . The wulf gets enough shit. I just didn’t want to have us spoil his party.

Peace n love.

seawulf575's avatar

Anyone talking about politics gets thrown in the pool!

janbb's avatar

@seawulf575 Sounds good but can we wait for summer for that?

seawulf575's avatar

Nope! Polar Bear Plunge!!!

rebbel's avatar

I’m positive that, after we’ve searched a good bit, we’ll find a juicy political thread somewhere on the Social or General tabs… :-)

seawulf575's avatar

And yes, you can warm up by the fire afterwards…with the warming liquid of your choice.

janbb's avatar

@seawulf575 A Penguin Plunge then? Sounds good!

MrGrimm888's avatar

We can just get a a fire log, from the grocery store. $3.99. And then I’ll put wood on it!

chyna's avatar

Smores after the Penguin Plunge!

Jonsblond's avatar

I’m down for a penguin plunge!

MrGrimm888's avatar

I ain’t jumping in no cold ass water….

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Key West Yes !! for the plunge.

SergeantQueen's avatar

Gratulujeme!!!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Yikes! I’ll sip some hot chocolate and watch.

MrGrimm888's avatar

We could do it pig picken’.. .
A whole pig, on a grill. ..
Delicious….

seawulf575's avatar

@Patty_Melt Not sure I’m the one you want to see dancing here..This sort of reminds me of what I look like on a dance floor

LuckyGuy's avatar

Congrats on the well deserved 10k!

Each time I see your name i can’t help think of the sub class.
I’ve got to know…. Is a coincidence or are you related? You did mention sailing so…

Either way, thanks for being in this pond!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@seawulf Hey I watched that! You are funny.

Demosthenes's avatar

Congratulations wulfie—Fluther’s most tedious voice of dissent! :D

seawulf575's avatar

@LuckyGuy I was part of the decommissioning crew for the USS Seawolf (SSN575). Not a coincidence at all. Unfortunately I kept finding “Seawolf” taken as a user name. When I changed the “o” to a “u”, it was wide open.

seawulf575's avatar

@Demosthenes I am persistent, aren’t I? I find I’m much less agreeable as the years go by. I can’t wait to see what I’m like at 100.

Mimishu1995's avatar

I came when this party was pushed back for editing, then forgot until now. Congrats!

Patty_Melt's avatar

@wulfie, ah! I love them. If I were a bird, I would totally go for that.

seawulf575's avatar

Yeah, Patty, for a bird it is pretty enticing. Seeing me on the dance floor acting like that? “Hey! look at that epileptic wading bird!”

seawulf575's avatar

But just like with singing, it isn’t always about how good you are, it’s how much fun you have doing it!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Great idea. Let’s add karaoke to this shindig.
Everybody join in!

seawulf575's avatar

Excellent choice!

ragingloli's avatar

Not in a million years, lol.

filmfann's avatar

Congo rats! You are an appreciated contributer! Glad to see this!

I hate seeing these so late!

seawulf575's avatar

Thanks @filmfann. Welcome to the party. Better late than never, eh? Get a drink, and enjoy!

MrGrimm888's avatar

^Yeah! Party, at the mansion!
My canoe, is sitting by the pond. Take it out for a spin. Just bring it back, or tell me where it sank…
It should be unsinkable, thanks to my modifications, but shit happens. I’ll find it. No sharks, or gators, in our pond…

I’m thinking that we could get some crawfish too. I like mine, extra spicy. It’ll clear your sinuses out. Wash ‘em down with some cold beer. You’ll be fine.:)

seawulf575's avatar

Now crawfish sounds good. But….do you eat the mustard? The yellow fat showing when you pull the heads off? Never could bring myself to eat that…always slung it to the side.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Yay! Can I join the seafood party too?

Patty_Melt's avatar

Here Mimi, sit next to me.

MrGrimm888's avatar

You rip the cephalathorax, off. You eat the tail meat, and then suck the remaining juices from the delicious head. It sounds disgusting. But, when you try it, is great….

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Patty_Melt @MrGrimm888 I have eaten crawfish before. The ones I ate were so small I couldn’t get much meat out of it. I prefer lobsters!

MrGrimm888's avatar

Well. It’s a lot of work. But, I eat the claw meat too. I don’t waste, any part. People give me their leftover claws. Yummy. Nothing goes to waste…
I consume, everything but the exoskeleton.
I feel like a seagull, pecking away at them. But. I eat the entire creature. Any meaty parts, I will break up, and chew. They have to be heavily spiced though . I just love crawfish…

kritiper's avatar

Wha…..........? Did I miss something??

MrGrimm888's avatar

You only miss things, if you have a closed mind. Which, you don’t…

Mimishu1995's avatar

@kritiper we are eating crawfish!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Have a napkin.

MrGrimm888's avatar

You’ll need a lot of napkins, for crawfish. So worth it though…

kritiper's avatar

Glad I brought my appetite! And thanks for saving some for me…
(You guys are the best!)

tedibear's avatar

Congratulations, @seawulf575 ! Sorry I was late.

LuckyGuy's avatar

I know what I’m bringing to the party!!! Something unbelievable!!!

On the back of the breakfast cereal box: Great Value, Crunchy Nuggets, 29 0z. there are a couple of puzzles: 2 Sudokus and one Codebreaker. I just did them and the answer to what would be 11 down on the codebreaker is SEAWOLF! What are the odds?! :-)

Breakfast cereal for everyone!

In case you are looking for it there is actually a #7 in the square with 7 blanks going down. 7,5,15,1,9,14,22. I’m guessing there are many different boxes and puzzles.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@LuckyGuy -How many though? What are the odds of getting the same puzzle if you purchase another box from the same store?

LuckyGuy's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille I have no idea. A box of cereal lasts me a long time. This box has a “Best by date of JUN 04 2020”. I couldn’t tell you when we got it. it could be several months ago.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@LuckyGuy – I can wait the four months for your answer. :D

seawulf575's avatar

Thanks @tedibear and welcome to the party! Better late than never. Get a bite to eat. Apparently we now have lobster and cereal as well as crawfish.

MrGrimm888's avatar

I think all, are welcome, at the mansion. The less crawfish that anyone eats, the more for me!
I’m sure, I could eat all the leftovers. I’m sure that I could eat thousands.

My friend got three aluminum tubs, leftover from our Cajon Festival. We ate them all. Had to be hundreds, or more. Yummy…

I thought I would have gastrointestinal issues. Nope. I can apparently consume, at least a thousand in a few days, and no problems. And my sinuses, were clear, for days. That cajun spice, was better than any drug, for clearing me up. I had tears in my eyes, but I could breathe clearly…

Patty_Melt's avatar

Hey, Grimmy, this crustacean has heard of you.

MrGrimm888's avatar

LMAO! Blue crabs, are assholes. They pinch me, all the time, if I am just wading in shallow water. I’ve got them in my boat before too. Accidentally, reeled them in. They’re the reason I wear shoes, in my canoe. I’ve had to kick them away from me, many times. I have to get them far enough away from me, to use my paddle to keep them at bay. Then I have to find land, and get them out. You can’t grab them with a net, or they get all tangled up. I don’t want to hurt them. I have spent who knows how much time, trying to get them off of my boat. When they grab something, they hold on too. It hurts like crazy. One got me by my toe once. Fucker wouldn’t let go…
I fish with China Backs (fiddler crabs,) when I am fishing for Sheepshead. Those guys, will get you too…

Never had a crab pull a knife on me though. Lol…

I have eaten plenty of Blue crabs too. So. I guess I have it coming…

The video is great. You can’t see them, because they burry themselves, in the sand.

People in my area, put out crab traps, and eat them all the time.

They’re everywhere, in our rivers, and marshes here…

I catch them accidentally, a lot. You think you have a fish on the line, then surprise! It’s a cranky little Blue crab…

I don’t bother to keep them. You need a bunch, to get a meal. I need like 7… At least.

But. I usually get about 2, each fishing trip… Sometimes, I’ll put one in my cooler, just to observe it. They’re amazing little creatures… Very interesting…

Slightly off topic. I was looking for a guy, who beat his wife, one night. I fought with him briefly, and he ran away and jumped into a sewer ditch. He was swimming underwater, to try to avoid me. I could see his white shirt easily, as I walked along the ditch. (He was an idiot.)
I was surprised to see lots of red eyes, in the ditch. After we got him, I went back to the ditch.
When I shinned my light down there, I realized that there were hundreds of crawfish. Before that, I didn’t know that they lived in such a cold place. Not that SC, is cold. But. I thought they only lived in warmer water. This was in February. But. There they were. Thriving, in 35° weather…

Apparently, they can live in heroine needle, sewage ditches, and endure the cold…Who would have thought?

@LuckyGuy any more cereal? i just finished it all!
