Let's all congratulate YARNLADY folks!

Asked by Saturated_Brain (5235points) October 28th, 2009

For what? Well, it’s pretty obvious isn’t it? She’s reached 10K!!!

I saw her score and felt like I needed to post it, since nobody else has done it (you old dinosaurs you). Come on you guys, is traffic this slow this time of the day? When you’ve got a Flutherite reaching 10K, shouldn’t there be this alarm going off somewhere in the mod HQ?

Ah screw it I’m supposed to be taking a hiatus from this place anyway

Congrats YARNLADY. =)

WhoooooHooooo! Lurve to you @yarnlady!

Pancake Platters all around!

I was hoping all week I’d be the one to post this :(

Saturated_Brain's avatar

@SpatzieLover I just saw her score a few minutes ago at 9995, and was like, “Whoa. That’s very near 10K”. Then it turned to 10K. Nobody seemed to be congratulating her, so I was thinking to myself, “Saturated_Brain, here’s your chance to make an impact on the Fluther community!” and so.. Well.. I grabbed it.. =P

I’m real sorry that you you didn’t get to do it. Honest! <crosses heart>. Why not you keep a lookout for @Likeradar? I can see another Flutherite veryyy nearrrrr…

whatthefluther's avatar

I have lurved @YARNLADY from the day I met her. It’s not that I always agree with her opinions (she is a little paranoid and a bit antisocial….but I didn’t see many of you opening your homes to a fluther party, and a swimming party, no less, and going to extraordinary lengths to accommodate those of us that can use a bit of accommodation….and I’m not talking about my disability….but I am talking about my darn pets and that damn cursing parrot, in particular). But she is probably the straightest shooter in all of fluther. She has an opinion on darn near everything, (for good reason…..she has probably lived “it”), is not afraid to share that opinion….she absolutely and always speaks her mind, always clearly and concisely, and she does not back down no matter how many pot shots are taken at her position and even if it seems the entire jelly population opposes that position. And I am not talking stubborn without basis. Her reasoning is valid and I feel she speaks from her heart with conviction and based on real life experiences….and, that perhaps she has travelled many a rocky road at times and is perhaps now a bit too cautious. But, I lurve her nonetheless…. you can not blame someone for such a thing until you have walked in their shoes (or rode in their wheelchair).
CONGRATULATIONS @YARNLADY on your 10 K lurve milestone. You deserve all the kudos being thrown your way and so many, many more. See ya…Gary/wtf

Cartman's avatar

Yay!!! Congratiulations! Lurve and good times.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@whatthefluther Wish I could give you a couple hundred lurve for that. Well stated!

ubersiren's avatar

@whatthefluther : Very well said.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

Good for you! Woo-hoo!!!!!!!! :-)

jackm's avatar

Well said. I always find myself learning something from her.

CMaz's avatar

@whatthefluther – That was beautiful! :-)

cyn's avatar

@whatthefluther wow those are amazing words! and I completely agree with you.Yarnlady’s straight-forwardness is what makes her so darn awesome and lurvable. I’m so glad she is among us, flutherites. Don’t be jealous; you know I lurve you, too! ( :

YARNLADY's avatar

@ALL Thank you so much for the heartfelt greetings. I lurve you copy-cats acknowledging my signature greeting.
I was on a road trip for the last two weeks, so I didn’t get on as much as I would have liked, but each night, the hotel had free wireless, except in Yosemite National Park, so I didn’t miss much.

I have been on lots of different user participation sites, and Fluther is by far the best one of the bunch.

@AstroChuck I do have to say that when I achieved a similar landmark on another internet site, it was featured in the Sacramento Bee. Maybe this will be too.

rangerr's avatar

aprilsimnel's avatar

I say we all enjoy a hot cider and give three cheers for YARNLADY! Hip Hip HOORAY!

rooeytoo's avatar

Congratulations to Yarn Lady, ain’t no wool in her brain ( I have no idea what that means it just seems as if I should try to say something clever!)

bhec10's avatar


YARNLADY's avatar

@rooeytoo well, YARN is made from wool

rooeytoo's avatar

@YARNLADY – thank you, I knew there had to be a connection somewhere!

What I meant is despite the fact that yarn is fuzzy, there is nothing fuzzy about your thinking!

There that sounds pretty good and it is true as well!!

prasad's avatar

Back from road trip, fast and furious, Yarnlady, I had to browse through 4 pages that you answered in last 24 hours. Well, I must appreciate!

Congratulations on your 10K spot. Wish you very happy road trip ahead!

jonsblond's avatar

I’m late to the party. Congrats yamlady @YARNLADY ! =)

holden's avatar

Is there any cake left?

Belated congratulations, @YARNLADY!

I look forward to many more of your perls of wisdom.
I just had to add that.

judochop's avatar

Holy crap! This is quite possibly the largest Lurve in since the 60’s!

rooeytoo's avatar

@judochop – hehehe, I think the last time I was in a lurve in would have been in the 60’s!

janbb's avatar

@rooeytoo And you probably didn’t have to worry about hurting your knees then!

rooeytoo's avatar

@janbb – you are too funny and the worst part is that at the moment I am bothered by a very sore knee so your words are sadly accurate.

janbb's avatar

@rooeytoo I knew that you had knee problems and that’s why I said it. But I hope you feel better soon.

rooeytoo's avatar

@janbb – thank you, I am swimming and elliptical bike-thinging and I just bought an aqua belt so I can run in the pool without drowning. I do think it is improving and I am discovering that I sort of like swimming which will be good for cross training diversity. I am trying to get a waterproof ipod case so I can listen to a book while I swim. Only complaint is that here in the tropics the pool is like a warm bath!
