Aw, man… I wanted to host this party!

AC, I lurve you, man. Congratulations on making it to the big leagues!

chyna's avatar

@augustlan I wanted to host gailcalled’s party. You have to be quick around here. And it helps to be a stalker.

Aw, Chuckieboy, congrats!! Now, here’s a Canadian loonie for some penny candy. <messes up hair>

Way to go, Chuck! I am sooo happy that you’re here. You brighten my day. I hope you’ll be here for 30k more. Lurve!

wilma's avatar

I always try to imagine the man that that cute little six year old grew up to be.
Congratulations AstroChuck!

chyna's avatar

@wilma I’ve seen pictures of the adult Chuck. He’s still cute.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Three cheers for Chuck! (One for each 10K) Congrats.

janbb's avatar

Hey Chuckie! Hey Chuckie!! When I get big, I wanna be just like you!

If you hadn’t gone to your room in a snit for a few months, you would have been here long ago.

Anyway, I love you for your precocious wit, your politics and your passions. Fluther is a grayer place when you absent yourself.

I’m not sure who owns “Mazel Tov” at the moment so I’ll just say it for all of us know-it-alls.

Holy lurve batman!

@Seek_Kolinahr beaucoup de lurve, yo.

Dr_C's avatar

Way to go kid! As a prize you get to have ice-cream for dinner and stay up past your bed time!

Congratulations Chuckie… This place is better because of you. Keep up the good work.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Yay, Chuckie! 30,000 lurve is a lot for a little boy, but you can handle it. And no animals were harmed to give it to you!

@Seek_Kolinahr- I’m going to put little kid me up, too, what a neat idea!

chyna's avatar

@Seek_Kolinahr Great idea! This is me as a kid around 3. I’ll leave it up in Chucks honor.

wundayatta's avatar

Oh boy! Finally. Now we have enough people to play bridge. People, people, people—we need a few more so we can play volleyball or basketball.

Anyway, @astrochuck is the iconic jelly, to me. I have admired his humor from the day I first saw it. I have come to rely on it. I wanted to be like him. Really. That probably sounds weird, but he is such a people pleaser and people love his jokes and I wanted to be like that.

He has a serious side, too, which always surprises me. His questions come from across the border, it seems to me. I never expect them. But he’s actually deep—something his humor seems to cover over much of the time.

Welcome to the island, Big Guy! We have lemonade and Koolaid and hot dogs—all you might want! And squirt guns and Wii and you can sleep in a big space ship bed at night, if you like. Or camp out on the beach. You’ll have more fun than you can imagine. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and will even let you rope them into a game, if you insist.

Congratulations Chuck! Yoy hovered just under 30k for so long I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone around not lurved out on you.

rebbel's avatar

Little me congratulates little you.
Well done, you!

Buttonstc's avatar

That 30K island is starting to fill up. And now you’re there for comic relief. Enjoy. You deserve the honor. Congrats.

AstroChuck's avatar

Today…I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth.

Jellies, for the past two weeks you have been reading about how close I’ve been to crossing that elusive 30K threshold. And let me tell you the pressure and anticipation leading to that doorway has been unbearable. So much so that it has left me a shattered fellow, a shell of what I had been in just the previous weeks. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.

I have been on Fluther 2½ years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you jellies. Look at these grand flutherites. Which of you wouldn’t consider it the highlight of his internet career just to associate with them for even one day?

Sure I’m lucky.

Who wouldn’t consider it an honor to have known Augustlan? Also, the builders of this great Fluther empire, Ben and Andrew? To have spent two and a half years with that wonderful matriarch, Gailcalled? And let’s not forget Chyna, Zen (or whatever he is going by today), Tinyfaery, Marina, Kevbo, Dog, Syz, Daloon Wundayatta, ubersiren, and all the others? (Sorry. Just can’t fit everyone in there. Just know you’re included.)

Sure I’m lucky.

When the New York Giants, a team you would give your right arm to beat, and vice versa, sends you a gift – that’s something. When everybody down to the groundskeepers and those boys in white coats remember you with trophies—that’s something.

When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter, that’s something.

When you have a father and a mother who work all their lives so you can have an education and build your body mind—it’s a blessing.

When you have a wife (Parrothead) who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed—that’s the finest I know.

So, I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I’ve got an awful lot to live for.

Special thanks to Lou Gehrig for all the help with this post.

MissAnthrope's avatar

NO WAAAAAIIII! Of course you’ve come this far. You’ve been around for ages and, as far as I’m concerned, are a Fluther fixture. Sincere congrats on your 30k, which is truly an obscene amount of lurve. :)

@cyndihugs – That was so awesome.

Berserker's avatar

I like your username because it reminds me of Chuky, AKA Charles Lee Ray, from the Child’s Play franchise. But you’re more than a killer doll. You’re a killer motherfucking doll. Congrats and all that, I always enjoy reading your posts. Keep it up, or I’ll have your ass.
