Wow first one here, again!
Congratulations Evelyns_pet_zebra!! Even though we don’t always agree, congratulations dude!

marinelife's avatar

Woah! You practically rolled into the 10K ranks right before our eyes in the AstroChuck thread.

What can I say? I love someone who invents their own god and religion.

You are a fun and spicy addition to Fluther. As far as I am concerned, you have only one tiny flaw: that you like spiders. Still, I can overlook it for your wit, smarts and charm!

Congratulations to my favorite equus burchellii.

Proof that the great god Evelyn rewards her followers. A much deserved congrats to you!

Yay, congrats!

Congratulations! EPZ, you are one of the reasons that I keep coming back to fluther. You liven up this place and I could never imagine a fluther world without you. I always look for any answers you have, although, you keep changing your avatar, so it is hard at times. But the change in avatars make you so uniquely you. Thanks for being here and making things a bit brighter for me.

Damn, that was quick. Congrats. @AlenaD came out. You are lucky.

Way to go @evelyn!!!

You all are soon going to have to enlarge the clubhouse!!!

When worshipin’ a god named evenlyn
‘tis important to avoid this sin.
When his lurve’s at ten thousand,
He’s sure to be carousin’
Just don’t tell him his stripes are too thin!

ok, so that didn’t make much sense, but hey!

Congrahtulations, you thick-striped bastahd!

[ahem! sniffle, sniffle]

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@ everyone, thanks for the many kindnesses, now and in the past. We may not always agree, but that’s what keeps things interesting around here. We can all have different viewpoints and still be friends. I am very humbled by the words and wishes here, and to be a part of Fluther is an honor that I cannot come up with the words to describe. Fluther is the best thing I have ever been a part of, and I cna’t imagine what life would be like without it. I even got a wonderful poem by daloon, which was just the way I like ‘em, nonsensical. :^)

I’ve got no pancakes, but I can hand out habanero jelly beans to everyone!

Judi's avatar

Woot woot!!!

Bluefreedom's avatar

Holy Jellyfish, Batman! @evelyns_pet_zebra is in the 10k club, right where he belongs! Congratulations on this fine achievement my friend! Very well done. =)

augustlan's avatar

Congrats, EPZ and welcome to the club! I’ll scooch over so you can sit next to me. :)
Love and lurve to you, my friend.

cookieman's avatar

If Evelyn is half as proud of you as we are, you’re a shoe in for the “right hand of god” position.

Congratulations my bi-colored friend.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

evelyn!! oh man, i always look forward to your answers! congratulations on filling in your well-deserved spot in the 10k club!
i think this is one of the first parties i’ve been on time to…

Dog's avatar

Whoooo hooooo!!!

To celebrate I have trained ten-thousand Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches to sing “For he’s a golly good fellow ”

Okay guys-on the count of three. One and a two and a three….

Congratulations EPZ!

Quagmire's avatar

Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aprilsimnel's avatar

Well, at the next convocation of the high priestesses of Evelyn, I will propose that this be made an official feast day, the Day of the Zebra! Wine, song, dancing and pizza! Lots and lots of pizza. And fresh-baked cookies. And we will invoke Dear Evelyn to let us eat as much pizza and cookies as we like without weight gain.

Congratulations, EPZ!

Jude's avatar

To the purdiest, little zebra that I ever did see… Congrats! I’ve always loved reading your answers. You’re so honest. No B.S.!!

janbb's avatar

I’d like to lift a Red Stripe to the black and white one. You always have a unique point of view and paradoxically add a great deal of color to our discussions. Lurve to the goddess and her acolyte.

loser's avatar

Congrats! We lurve ya!!!

Blondesjon's avatar

Congratulations to a true original. I’ve liked your ability to just be you, regardless of how it’s perceived, since I signed on to this site. You are also one of the jellies that immediately comes to my mind when the word Fluther is spoken aloud. Join us now in the 10k club. C’mon, we know you don’t have anything better to do. You wouldn’t be here if you did.

thanks for the kick-ass stickers too

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Excellent, congrats. I tell people about your username all the time.

ubersiren's avatar

Woop woop!

AstroChuck's avatar

Congratulations to one of my favorite flutherers. But enough about me. We’re here to celebrate you, Stripes. Of all the animals in the Fluther petting zoo you are my favorite zebra. In fact you are one of my favorite flutherites, period. And I know I’m not alone there. Congrats!!

irocktheworld's avatar

Omg,already? Thats freaking great!! X]
Even though we dont speak much,I still think your cool :)
Congratzzz on the 10k!! Enjoy! :)

autumn43's avatar

Stripes alive! Congratulations! I was out last night and there were three girls with the same ZEBRA dress on. I think they must have been celebrating for you too, evelyns_pet_zebra!

Congratulations EPZ! There is no more deserving Jelly!

For being tardy everyone can have a glass consider it e-champagne of the dry kind .

suzyq2463's avatar

I’m revelin’ in Evelyn’s amazing achievement! Happy 10K!

Fred931's avatar

(Loud dinging noise in background) ITS RANDOM LURVE PTS FOR EVERY1 TIME WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (kinda to make up for the half-eaten ice cream cake and broken CD [I blame Whatthefluther for that {even though I can’t really prove it}])

mangeons's avatar

Congrats you crazy zebra, you were one of my first friends on Fluther and I’m sure everyone here appreciates your well-thought, insightful, funny, and sarcastic answers.

jamielynn2328's avatar

Congratulations, one of my faves!!

KatawaGrey's avatar

Late to the party… but yay for my favorite pet zebra anywhere!

whatthefluther's avatar

Evelyns_Pet_Zebra is the cousin I wish I had. You know, kinda fucking crazy, but real cool at the same time. Hell, I’d probably look forward to family get-togethers just to see what this character was up to and what kind of trouble he was brewing for us to share. You have heard “never a dull moment”....well, this is the guy, the one you would want to hang with and call a friend.

I imagine there is an aspect of this guy each of you don’t like, perhaps that he would never kill a spider or nearly any insect, yet he is a hunter, that he raises snakes and roaches, and that he may have smoked more than a few of those in his lifetime, and that sexually, the guy is, shall we say, rather adventurous. But let me also suggest that I’m pretty damn sure, this is a jelly whom everyone universally appreciates and lurves a lot.

I mean, the guy really is a character, very colorful (and sometimes makes off-color remarks), and actually quite eccentric in my mind as it seems he treads through life somewhat off the beaten path or marches along to a slightly different drummer. And he is honest to a fault, sometimes brutally so. He has integrity and speaks frankly, always. And he aint a bit bashful of doing so, but, as we are all apt to do on ocassion, he sometimes screws up. But what is so refreshing about this guy, is, he freely and openly admits his mistakes and apologizes when he realizes he may have used a poor choice of words, or perhaps in a moment of insensitivity, he came down a bit too hard on a fellow jelly. And certainly, that practice is very commendable and unfortunately, one that we don’t see more commonplace among us, nowadays.

To one of my most favorite jellies and one helluva nice guy, who loves music and is not afraid to admit that Peter Gabriel brings him to tears; to the man who loves life and his wife with a heart the size of our dearest Evelyn (300 foot tall); to he who mocks the very hottest of the habaneros, and with whom I would dare to share the very flesh of my pet pot-bellied pig: CONGRATULATIONS Evelyns_Pet_Zebra on your 10K lurve milestone and your admission to the 10K Lurve Lounge…a very high achievement and very well-deserved reward.
You are absolutely correct, my friend, “Life is about choices. Your results may vary.”
See ya….Gary aka wtf
PS: Sorry I’m a bit late….that’s been happening a bit too often, lately.

whatthefluther's avatar

@Fred931….I did not break your Bon Jovi CD. Why @wildflower would hang me by my balls if I were to ever even jokingly mock Bon Jovi, let alone harm a CD containing their music. But that is OK….I’ve nearly 750 CDs… help yourself to one. AND I MEAN, JUST ONE!
See ya….Gary aka wtf

Tink's avatar

Whos Bon Jovi?~

Dog's avatar

~Shakes head In wonder at Tink asking who Bon Jovi is.

Judi's avatar

@Tink1113, Were you just put hre to make the rest of us feel old?

whatthefluther's avatar

—Tink, Tink, Tink….And I thought you knew music. .Perhaps @dverhey or @applesaucemanny will fill you in. See ya….Gary aka wtf

Tink's avatar

Haha I know who Bon Jovi is! Didn’t you guys catch the ~ haha I’m just having fun trying to make Jellies feel “old”
ps. @dverhey is gone from fluther :(

Judi's avatar

It reminds me of the time a friends daughter seriously said to her “Hey mom, did you know Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings?”

whatthefluther's avatar

@Tink1113….wtf? If you have a way to contact him, please send him my regards and ask him to please return to fluther when it is right for him. Thank you and see ya…Gary aka wtf (who needs no help to feel old)
shit, there goes my dream of knowing someone residing in Humboult County…the place where those funny green patches grow best, as I believe @Judi can attest

Tink's avatar

@whatthefluther Dont think I’m a stalker, but yes I got two ways of contacting him, he’s right here and right here also. I’ll make sure to tell him your message, I was told by him he might come back in the future.

Aethelwine's avatar

Congrats to one of my favorite jellies! A little friend of mine left this for you. :D

@jonsblond i was really hoping for “Some Pig”...~

Tink's avatar

@jonsblond Thats adorable :)

Judi's avatar

@whatthefluther, that was another life ago. Your messing with my sweet Christian lady persona!

whatthefluther's avatar

@Tink1113….Thanks for the link, Tink…I left a note for him
@Judi…Your secrets are safe with me (former hippie, no stranger to “medications”, currently a fairly devout Catholic (if I recall), never pushy,share Bakersfield as a home, for some time with @sccrowell, that must have been a great Christmas party…..please invite us if you do it again, and you are a wonderful flutherer, quite bright and I’m hardily medicated). Gave you a GA for a push to 20K!
See ya….Gary aka wtf

wundayatta's avatar

Hmmm. So once we reach 20K we get a WTF mini bio? I don’t know if this is an incentive or a disincentive…...
Naw! Just messin’ wid ya!

Tink's avatar

@whatthefluther Youre welcome :)

casheroo's avatar

@daloon I’m excited to hit major marks! I want to see what WTF says about me.

mangeons's avatar

Lol, I want to see what WTF has to say about me too, but I doubt I’ll ever make it to 10k. ):

Judi's avatar

@whatthefluther, it’s Lutheran, not Catholic, but close enough

whatthefluther's avatar

@daloon…You and @Judi hit your 10K while I was on hiatus so your 20K will be extra special (like that will be a problem…talk about a colorful character who bares all…hey, when can I get that clique tattoo on my ass…just keep that damn monkey and his banana more than nine characters away, OK).
@casheroo….You are a wonderful and easy mark and we’ll be there in no time (and yours will require some editing to get it down to under @dalepetrie proportions…and no, I’m not talking body size, silly)
@mangeons….Oh you’ll get there. Remember you posted something (it was your birthday or your sisters and one or both of you had been to the doctor that day but had not discussed with the doctor an issue that was subsequently addressed right here on fluther, and @Judi, after some “rest”, I’ll remember the issue and other details, such as both sisters had posted questions that evening) to the effect that perhaps a moderator would see some comments, and I just laughed and suggested you just scream down the hall, but of course I was bad because I was not cognizant of living arrangements with your dear momerator. Hey I think I just invented a new word…lay that one on @augustlan. And when you hit your 10K I will relive that story as well as the genesis of the word “momerator” which will by then be commonplace and an entry in legitimate unabridged dictionaries, the world over….or @daloons ass, your pick!
@all,....OK fluther on! You are all very real in my imagination and are very easy marks.. And I lurve you all. Peace. See ya….Gary aka wtf

augustlan's avatar

The Momerator. Sounds scary… I likey!

YARNLADY's avatar

@whatthefluther the term Momerator was coined on the Momslikeme site long ago and has been used on Mom-to-Mom and probably various other sites

whatthefluther's avatar

@YARNLADY….Thanks for the info….it’ll keep me out of trouble. It was an original thought nonetheless (I know no other moderated sites). I like your orange candle avatar….so nice to hear cak is making progress. See ya….Gary aka wtf

cak's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra – I’d hug you, but I haven’t even hugged my husband yet. It’s the forbidden zone! I love you wit and wisdom and am a huge fan. Congratulations, many more lurve to you, my friend!

One small step for zebras… one giant leap for something or other… CONGRATS!!

More pancakes for all! congratulations @evelyns_pet_zebra

Congrats! @evelyns_pet_zebra…well done! ^___^

Strauss's avatar

@Judi I seriously heard that when I worked in a record store (remember those?) when PM&W’s first albums came out.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

Gorsh, I feel all tingly inside. Reading this would normally give me a swelled head and an ego the size of Texas, if I didn’t already have both of those. Well, the only thing that keeps my head from swelling is all the hats I wear, and as for my ego, well, that was burned up by some really hot habanero sauce years ago. It never grew back. GAs to everyone. I want everybody to get to 10K.

sounds like WTF might have spent some time in my head recently, and I’d love to spend some time in his front yard, shining the chrome on his knight.

Dog's avatar

Ohhh Nice Avatar!

chyna's avatar

hate the avatar!

whatthefluther's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra….Why, yes, I did spend a bit of time in your head recently and I should report:
1. I was not alone!
2. I could not confirm any drug use….everything we read and see is 100% natural!
3. I did not say 100% normal!
4. Don’t look now, but I think I got your goat!
See ya….wtf

Judi's avatar

Can’t even see the avatar!

whatthefluther's avatar

@Judi…Through all the smoke? How was your plane ride?
See ya….Gary aka wtf

aprilsimnel's avatar

Aw, @Judi, your avatar is wonderful!

Judi's avatar

@whatthefluther , coming home was scary for me. We could barely see the ground and had to fly to 12,500 feet to get above the smoke. My ears are still not working right and we landed about 12 hours ago.
My husband is a great pilot but he is not instrument rated so we have to be able to see I where were going to be legal. I want to be more than legal though. I don’t even like to go near “marginal.”

whatthefluther's avatar

@Judi…Wow, I bet that was scary, but if I recall correctly, you are not exactly a stranger to scary flights (if memory serves, I believe you once told the story of your pilot/husband turning to you in mid-flight, and announcing that he was sorry, but that he had really done it this time and was responsible for soon killing both of you, to which you responded no way buster, smacked him across the side of the head and demanded that he fly that plane to safety. Or, maybe not). In any regard, I’m delighted you are home and safe, hope your ear problem has improved and, that you are soon able to get some rest. See ya…Gary aka wtf

Judi's avatar

@whatthefluther, pretty darned close.
This was not as scary as that flight by a long shot.

EmpressPixie's avatar

I knew I missed one of these! Congratulations!! (super late)
