It’s Mariah, of course!

Mariah, you’re definitely one of my favorites around here, with your intelligent answers, kindness, and compassion. You’re one of the nicest, most understanding people I’ve seen around on here. You’ve been through a lot, yet you still take the time to help other people on the site as much as you can. There’s no doubt in my mind that you deserve this achievement! Congrats, Mariah! :-)

Help yourself to some chocolate and make yourself at home! The pool is around back, there’s plenty of liquor in the bar, and sexy men are EVERYWHERE! Try to avoid the camel though, he bites.

Kardamom's avatar

Girlie, just for your sweet self, we’ve rigged up a giant 20 gallon colostomy bag filled with Margaritas! So get out your specimen jar and have a little drinky poo.

We’ve also scoured the countryside to find a few of the hottest (looking) and most talented doctors that specialize in conditions of the bowel and we’ve brought them here to give you a “private and fun filled” examination before you settle in.

We’ve got your room all set up with every conceivable medical device that you might need while you’re here, but we tried to make it look all gorgeous and spectacular kind of like this. See, you can’t even see any of the monitors or alarm systems because we’ve discreetly hidden them into the design work.

We knew your mom would want to come along too, but both of you need your own space and mom needs a little bit of pampering and TLC, so we’ve set her up in an adjoining room, but we gave her room a little bit more traditional style. We’ve also set her up with a gourmet “cooking for patients with bowel disease” class, and a pedicure and a hot rock massage and bunch of other activities that she can choose from.

We’ve also installed a personalized college lecture-style classroom complete with stadium style seating, computer monitors built into the desks, headphones and a full wall sized instruction “tablet” for the teachers, and special areas for hospital-style beds to be able to be moved in an out when needed, and we’ve invited all of your classmates to attend school, here at the mansion. We’ve got fantastic dorm rooms set up for any and all of them that want to come. And we’ve wooed some of the best college professors across the country to come to the mansion to give you and your friends your four year’s worth of schooling and the professors will get credit for taking a sabbatical and then writing about it.

All of us including @incediarydan, @josie, @Jleslie, @yarnlady, @adirondackwannabe, @sarahhh, @crisw, @earthgirl, @marinelife, @hawaiijake, @wundyatta, and @Coloma and many more have gotten together to throw you and your mom and introductory potluck luncheon. I unfortunatley, have absolutely no concept of math or calculus and so I ended up making 10,000 gallons of potato salad instead of 10lbs. My bad.

After we all wait a half an hour after we eat, we will take you to the indoor pool (that is heated above 88 degrees) and you will get a series of swimming lessons from the yummy American Olympic gold medalist Cullen Jones

Then we’ll have a jaunty singalong (with strange lyrics that we never quite understand) and stories by the campfire and you will come to know that the moral of this story is: when you’re a fantastic person like @Mariah, people will flock to you and love you! You are loved, dearie!

@Adirondackwannabe “Warrior” eh? I like that word. Thank you very much! :)
@picante “Wind beneath our tentacled wings,” love it, haha! Thanks so much :)
@ANef_is_Enuf Haha, maybe I should change my name to “unMariah.” I love your contributions as well, thank you so much, dear!
@Your_Majesty I find that about one half of the people I meet share my lurve for the pokemans, and the other half think it’s silliness. However, the first group is far more fun! :D Thanks for coming to my party!
@Dr_C Hey, thanks!
@Coloma A hefty compliment coming from a fine jelly such as yourself! Thank you very much, dear :D

@FutureMemory Hey, thanks so much!
Thanks @flutherother, you too!
@Kardamom LMFAO the thought of drinking anything out of a colostomy bag is making me gag. Hahahaha. But what a thoughtful party you’ve arranged! Thanks!
@Sunny2 But I wanted to collect $200! Oh well, thanks!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

ROFL, a 20 gallon colostomy bag filled with margaritas. I don’t know whether to gag or make a toast, but that made me laugh out loud.

Well it’s time to Paint Your Wagon, @Mariah. I dedicate “this song”: to you. I hope Rachel likes it too.

DominicX's avatar

Congratulations, Mariah! I’ve known you since you were 13 and on AIROW and I remember that you were always very intelligent and I remember feeling jealous that I wasn’t as smart as you even though I was older (it’s true, I felt that way haha). You’ve always been one of the smartest and most interesting people I’ve known online and I’m glad you and I are still on the same site. :D

Nullo's avatar

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 10k mansion! Your rooms are all ready for you. Always good to have another Aiworian around, especially one as insightful as you.

Seelix's avatar

Congratulations, @Mariah! I love having you around in the tide pool. You’re everything a Jelly should aspire to be, and you deserve every single point of that lurve! xoxo

@stardust Thanks for coming to my party!
@filmfann Why thank you, sir! (High five)
@shego Thanks a million!
@XOIIO Damn, burn! Well I know who YOU are! At the risk of seeming a creeper, all I mean by that is I’ve seen you around and recognize your name. Bahaha.
@Earthgirl Such kind words, thank you so much, dear!
@PhiNotPi Even @XOIIO?? :o Just kidding. Thanks for coming to my party, my favorite co-math-puzzler!
@Kayak8 Thanks!
@Michael_Huntington Thanks so much, friend. Should we start saying Jyver represent now?? It doesn’t feel quite right.
@SavoirFaire Aw, I definitely won’t leave altogether, but I certainly won’t have the kind of free time on my hands that I’ve had. Thanks for coming to my party!
Thanks a million, @Simone_De_Beauvoir!

@ETpro Thanks to one of the first jellies to welcome me and make me feel at home!
@DominicX You what?! Dang, write it off to low self-esteem, ‘cuz that’s crazy talk! I appreciate the compliment very much, though. To this day I love hearing your insights; it’s been fun sort of growing up together on these sites! :)
Thanks @Nullo! Very glad to have you around too. I know we usually disagree in debates, but I hope you know that your insights often give me pause, and the healthy debate is very much enjoyed. Thanks for coming to my party!
Thank you @Seelix, you’re such a lovely jelly. I love having you around as well.

@JilltheTooth An honest mistake. I actually searched to see if anyone else had posted it, but I didn;t second guess the keywords. Oh well, no harm in linking to a grat piece of music twice.

Ohh theres one

@ETpro : Just jerkin’ your chain a bit, and like you said, fun to hear it twice! I sing along… ;-)
