She’s not at 10k yet..

TheLoneMonk's avatar

Weird how in the right sidebar Val has all of the headlines…huh… gee I wonder why 10k has lost it’s luster…

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

She hasn’t hit it yet.
I declare shenanigans!

DeanV's avatar

Shenanigans seconded!

But really, she’s pretty damn close.

Captain_Fantasy's avatar

Still not there yet!

Dog's avatar

Yay Val!!!!!!!

Welcome to the mansion!
Your suite is ready and it has a full spa and sunset ocean views! :)

Let’s party!

Fred931's avatar

@rangerr oh stfu. Val was one of the very few who laugh at my jokes and i really didn’t want to miss starting this one!

Hmmm…still 12 points to go. Shall we welcome her to the 9988 front porch?

Vunessuh's avatar

Even if it’s early. :)

liminal's avatar

You broke the rules, and now you must die 0_0

Fred931's avatar

So now who wants to go look at Val’s profile?

liminal's avatar

She is there!!!!!

TheLoneMonk's avatar

@lim: Not points, lurve. Well, that’s the way it used to be, but now lurve is really just points on a scoreboard…alas…

liminal's avatar

A very patient person! You deserve a party! Congrats!

Fred931's avatar

@liminal I can’t tell who you are calling patient. If you are calling me patient, you don’t understand patience at all. :P

liminal's avatar

@Fred931 um, she is at the lurve 10,000… she gets the party not you :P and the patience comment is for her, and I am pretty sure she will get it.

Cruiser's avatar

Atta girl!! Congratulations!! More bubbly!! Yeah!

wilma's avatar

So many all at once! This is getting mighty suspicious….

DeanV's avatar

Lurve inflation is at its highest rate ever, CNN reports.

But really, congrats on the 10K.

rangerr's avatar

Val, this thread is a mess. I apologize. Just trying to stick with tradition. But it doesn’t matter. You hit 10k.
Maybe a new party will start because this one started out a disaster.
If not…

You were one of the first people on Fluther to make me realize that this place is indeed a community. Even if you make me do chores and take away my cookies, I am so glad that I know you. You aren’t worried about what other people think and you’re not afraid to talk about frowing up. You are truly one of my favorite jellies. Keep up the work, and welcome to the mansion! Let’s dance. Right now.
I love you!
Plus you have a hot son. BAM.

Dog's avatar

Wait? She is at 10k no? I saw her at 10015…

I am so confused.

janbb's avatar

@Val You are one of my favorite people to run a question into the ground with! I’m sure if we met in real life, neither of us would ever get anything done!

Mazel Tov™! Way to go!

@Fred931 You really need to learn patience.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Yay!!! Congratulations! :))

HTDC's avatar

This congratulatory thread has been tainted, it just doesn’t feel right.

Congratulations anyway Val!

MissAusten's avatar

Congrats to an awesome jelly!!!!!

Fred931's avatar

Might as well throw this in now…


wundayatta's avatar

My God! Val is in the mansion? It is well deserved. Her thoughtful answers and intriguing questions are a real asset to fluther. We may not always agree, but it’s always interesting discussing things with her.

Congratulations Val!

whatthefluther's avatar

I really lurve @Val123, and would like to share a story about how I came to know her here on fluther. I think you’d agree that @Val123 stood out immediately when she first burst upon the scene here. It was apparent she was good natured and a lot of fun and just a little bit (or perhaps more), crazy. She seemed a “people person”, personable, approachable and a jelly anyone would love to count as a friend. But I had a problem with her when I first saw her , and I refrained from sending her one my “welcome to fluther” PMs I so enjoy dropping on someone new who catches my eye.
The thing is, she shares the name of my ex-wife, and her first couple of posts read to me exactly as if they had been written by my ex. And, @Val123‘s fluther bio was completely blank for at least several days after her joining, further adding intrigue to an imagination that was already convinced that she was indeed my ex. And, that would be the fun, wild and crazy ex with whom I had remained close friends with after an amicable divorce but who, in time, would inexplicably betray me. So I avoided her.
But then there was a question here on fluther, regarding what in particular we liked about fluther and I posted that the PM system was dear to me and that I cherished the hundreds of PMs I had traded with many a jelly here. And then another jelly posted that my PMs were very nice, or something like that, and then@Val123, (along with a couple others) , posted (or sent me a PM) noting that they had never received a PM of mine and felt slighted.
So naturally, I would head to @Val123s profile to send her a PM, that I figured I would carefully craft. But I didn’t need to. Her bio, now complete was evidence that she was not my ex, altho, it further illustrated just how fun and crazy she really is. I shared that story with @Val123 and we both had a good laugh. And here, 10,000 lurves later, she is just as fun and still a little bit crazy as she was back then. And that is why I lurve @Val123 and consider her a fine fluther friend.
Congratulations @Val123! See ya…...Gary/wtf

syz's avatar

zephyr826's avatar

Huzzah, @Val123! I feel like I’ve only run into you within the last month or so, but the wit and warmth in your answers has always impressed me. So well done!

Val123's avatar

Wow, you guys! I suddenly feel really shy, like I wanna go hide in a corner! I’m really not used to feeling that way~With all the 10K parties I figured no one would even come to mine. :) But ya’ll did, with all of the kind graciousness you posses. Thank you.

Amazing @Val123. You’re a great jelly. Keep on lurvin’!

Fred931's avatar

@whatthefluther How long has it been since you came to a 10k party??

@syz He used to always do that, but now it’s a well-appreciated rarity

@Val123 I take no responsibility for your @ things. The only thing I believe I messed up severely was Cruisin’s 10k party. Besides, everything in italics isn’t a bad thing if it’s just one question. Though there are plenty of haters who’d say otherwise.
