That’s right! It’s CRUISER! Our own outspoken car guy has made it to the big 3–0.

Now I’m only at 10K, so some of the 30K can tell him what he’s in for. The rest of us will enjoy the party!

May I offer you my very liberal congratulations? I promise not to be conservative in my praise of your humanity, your great and thoughtful parenting and the pleasure I take in your friendship. it’s great to share both Fluther and the country with you @Cruiser – a gentleman with whom I can agree to disagree.

Kardamom's avatar

Welcome to one of the most romantic jellies to ever swim in these waters. For you sir, we have decorated the honeymoon/anniversary suite for you and your lovely wife to enjoy a carefree and fabulous vacation.

First, after you’ve taken a nice warm bath in the hot tub under the stars and slipped into your cushy soft robes and slippers, you will be whisked across the grounds in a horse drawn carriage where you will be taken to your quarters. Once upstairs, the rest of us Jellies will leave you alone for a couple of days. Your quarters will look like this and Andrea Bocelli will softly croon to you from below your window.

We have imported the finest Belgian chocolate and the most delicious Champagne for you to drink and we have left edible crayons for you to use as your imagination pleases.


bkcunningham's avatar

@Cruiser, thanks for so many very thoughtful answers and questions and kind words. You seem like a really nice person. Congratulations on your accomplishment here with the milestone 30,000, but more importantly, best wishes always for you in your real life.

Cruiser's avatar

@chyna <<Super blushes>> Kind words indeed! Can’t wait to see you land on the 30K island soon enough.

Hey there @Only138 Do you know this guy? ;)

@AshLeigh Thanks kiddo…tough to keep a cape dry in this tide pool!

@Hawaii_Jake Meeting you and getting to know you has been one of my greater pleasures here! A K-ass party would not be complete without some melancholy and Don Ho ;)

@AmWiser Thanks and Keep on Smilin ;)

dappled_leaves's avatar

Roll on, Cruiser! Congrats!

SavoirFaire's avatar

Félicitations, @Cruiser!

I promise not to tell everyone you only left the castle for the island to get away from [REDACTED].

ETpro's avatar

@Cruiser, I’m sure every possible pun on your screen name has already been used, so I will just say congratulations. Your patience and perseverance are remarkable.

bob_'s avatar

Well done!

Aethelwine's avatar

Fluther’s princess has made it. teehee :D

Super congrats to you!

Buttonstc's avatar

And to think I was just talkin’ to you a few days ago and didn’t even notice how close you were to 30K. Numbers are just not my thing. Kids yes. Numbers no :)

Congrats to you.

zensky's avatar

Good job buddy!

FutureMemory's avatar

Way to go dude! Keep up the good work.

rooeytoo's avatar

Congrats to the one and only @cruiser!

The dude who always has the best wheels, no wonder you made it to 30k so quickly!

JilltheTooth's avatar

How am I so late here??? Damn, boy, 30K? I know I helped a bit and except for one or two topics over which we would come to fisticuffs, I hit that damned GA again and again! Your kids are almost as lucky to have you as a parent as we are to have you as a Jelly! Take me for a ride!!!

Cruiser's avatar

:Back at ya”:–4dgmo&feature=related @chyna

@Adirondackwannabe Thanks for the wheels bro! Can’t get enough of Car songs

@gailcalled Can do! Have fun on this little ride I customized for you!

@SuperMouse Thanks for the kind words….Be careful of nuggets of cheese just laying around but I know you can take care of yourself! ;)

wundayatta's avatar

Welcome to the island, @Cruiser. I guess your cabana will have a damn big garage. The only highway on the island is only a mile long, but with some creative imagining, you could probably make it seem endless.

C,ongratulations dude!

picante's avatar

Congratulations, Cruiser! You rolled in with your lights off while I was away; but I burned rubber to get to the party once I got the news. You’re a fave—many thanks for your presense here! Please drive carefully!

Cruiser's avatar

Thank you @shego Sometimes you just feel like a nut

@Symbeline Thank you! For my favorite Jelly Zombie ass kicker

@Kayak8 I have really enjoyed our conversations and here is a tune with a view for you!

@tranquilsea this is the best I can do for now! ;)

Thanks @DrBill Time for a check up

@marinelife Thank you so much and here is a tune for my favorite Jelly scribe.

@KatawaGrey It has been a pleasure to get to know ya…here is a tune just because

Appliances are good for stacking things on @Hibernate Like pretty shiny shelves! Here is one of my favorites I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for staying up late @Coloma! Here is one more tune to keep the Bash going!

I have died and gone to heaven @Kardamom You paint quite the picture and I won’t ever want to leave! Must be Dreaming

Thanks @dappled_leaves Keep the airwaves full

Cruiser's avatar

Thanks @SavoirFaire I knew I could count on you and if you ever do spill the secret [REDACTED]

@ETpro I can say the same for you sir. We have known each others likes and dislikes for quite a long time now and do enjoy all our conversations. Here is a song in honor of your sons service

Thanks @bob_ Can I make you a BLT?

@jonsblond Thanks for the reminder there dear! XD Here is a tune for my favorite Jelly beer drinker and hell raiser

Bluefreedom's avatar

30k…..that is seriously nice! Great work and congratulations! Sorry I was late.

harple's avatar

@Cruiser Congratulations! So well deserved, and I know you’d been thinking about moving for a while! ;-)

Coloma's avatar


Mmmm…those look so good!
Grey Goose, but of course, and pass the Grey Poupon while yer at it! ;-D

Blackberry's avatar

Congratulations, Cruiser.

gailcalled's avatar

@Cruiser: That little vehicle is perfect; color-coordinated, fringed like the poodle’s ears, also needing fresh water daily, plus an occasional trim. This alone will grant you a place in the Fluther Pantheon. And here’s a good way to start your day. Rock it

@tranquilsea; Ask nicely and see what happens? Poodles R Us

Lightlyseared's avatar

Well Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kardamom's avatar

@Cruiser You are so sweet to give us presents!!! Thanks for the Aerosmith tune : )

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Cruiser Psst Plan on getting which, the woman, or the ride? Or just riding the woman? This is a 30k mansion man, I have been wondering around for hours, where is the full garage with car hoist, cherry picker, and fully rack of Craftsman tools? There is a Galaxy 500, a 55 Bellaire, a ’71 hemi Cuda, and a ’41 Ford Duce coup in need of some attention.

wundayatta's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central If you’re in a mansion, you are so far from @Cruiser your cars are going to rust to nothing before you get into the same universe as he is. I’ll give you a hint: you can’t drive there.

XOIIO's avatar

I should just stop answering questions right now and stay at 9945 lurve. Especially these ones :(

Judi's avatar

@XOIIO ; I just gave you lurve. Must have maxed out on you though because it didn’t show up. You will be @10K tonight even if you DON“T answer any more questions.

XOIIO's avatar

@Judi Yeah, I think a few people are maxed out.

LOL I shouldh throw the party, nobody likes a biggot.

Jellie's avatar

Better late than never. Well done Cruiser, Congratulations!!! You have very thoughtful answers and the ones featuring your MIL are usually my favourite ;-)

wilma's avatar

Oh! I’m late!
I’m out of town but just had to stop in and say Congratulations to one of my very favorite guys here on Fluther!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Sorry I’m late honey, I was out buying you a new car. Although, I’m not sure that I should, after that horrible trick you played on me last week. Ah, hell, who am I kidding? I can’t stay mad at you. Want to come over later?

Cruiser's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central You really have to ask?? I may be a Chevy guy but I can look! ;)

@wundayatta No but you can Waterskii there!!

Cruiser's avatar

@wilma Thanks dear! I saved you some cake and brownies for your return and a tune just for you!.

@WillWorkForChocolate Better late than never and after we have this cake I am sure I will have a second wind to come over later!! ;)

rooeytoo's avatar

@Cruiser – that’s a good version of down under. There is an aboriginal band called Nabarlek who does a version with different lyrics. It is good too! I searched high and low for a site that has it so you could hear but it only appears to be in iTunes. When you have time, have a listen to the sample or check them out on myspace. They have a great sound. Some good vids of them on youtube also. (Just none of them doing Down Under)

Cheery matey!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@Cruiser I dunno if I could actually eat a boobie cake… lol.

Cruiser's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate I know what you mean that one looked too good to eat! ;)

Cruiser's avatar

@rooeytoo I did find this collaboration that may interest you!

Berserker's avatar

Don’t wanna ruin a party, but what happened to Cruiser’s profile? His account is gone. :(

Blueroses's avatar


Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Symbeline Gasp! Was it a “Zenduction!?”

Blueroses's avatar

So you’re a dental floss tycoon? And now you’re gone again. This is getting scary…

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

How did he do that ^^^^???

augustlan's avatar

I’m guessing he disabled his account, but hasn’t cleared his cache.

Blueroses's avatar

It’s like a horror movie. Nobody go in the basement.

JilltheTooth's avatar

WTF is going on here? Who leaves during such a great party? I’m so confused

Seelix's avatar

Congratulations, @Cruiser – if you’re still here, that is. I’m confuzzled at this one… I know I’m really late to the party, but that’s no reason to leave Fluther!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Oh, @Seelix , what did you do?

Seelix's avatar

@JilltheTooth – I dunno… Maybe it was my internal admission that I have always had a little crush on @Cruiser. I’m older than I look, I swear! There’s no need to [REDACTED].

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

WTF? Where’d he go?

SpatzieLover's avatar

I finally made myself go to bed last night…Now I see I haven’t missed @Cruiser‘s 2nd coming

Who have you decided to become @Cruiser?

Neizvestnaya's avatar

As usual I’m late to the party but you have my congratulations! Your posts have been some of my favorites in fluther.

I raise my glass to crossing paths, again.


SpatzieLover's avatar

@Cruiser Will be missed :(

wilma's avatar

Can someone tell me that he isn’t gone? ... please?

SpatzieLover's avatar

@wilma has been pm’d

wundayatta's avatar

Is he going to Montana? Does he have prostate cancer? Is he going on the road to perform his works of classical music? Is he being enigmatic to see who notices? Oh what fun!

rooeytoo's avatar

Maybe he just wanted to hit the big 30 and then depart while still on top?????

SavoirFaire's avatar

Really makes you rethink this question.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@SavoirFaire It kind of does, although from what I understand, the reason for departure was a pretty recent thing.

Judi's avatar

I quit for a few months after I hit 20K. Some times you just need to get back into the real world.

Blueroses's avatar

Dammit! This celebration is turning into a wake. Cruser’s spirit wants us to celebrate his life here.

Is there any booze left?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I’ve got Captain Morgan, Jameson’s and Gentleman Jack. Pick your poison.

Blueroses's avatar

—well, bust it out @WillWorkForChocolate! Pour us a round and let’s toast:

“To Cruiser – not forgotten!”

wilma's avatar

I’ll have some of that Captain straight up.
*clink * To the cruiseman.
Thanks Choccygirl, spatzie and blueroses.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Oh, for heaven’s sake, he just emailed me and said it was OK to say this. He’s very busy with a new business and a couple of young teenagers and we’re all just too darned interesting to stay away from, so he had to amputate us. ow ow ow
BTW, those are my words, not his

tedibear's avatar

Oh thank heaven! I was beginning to feel like I had thrown a wake and not a party! It was about to put me off ever entertaining on Fluther again!

FutureMemory's avatar

I figured he was too busy with real life.

Come back soon, Cruise!

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Yep, yep, everything’s fine, nothing happened. Cruiser just needs to do what Cruiser needs to do. He may or may not be back eventually, but we’ll certainly miss him.

<raises glass> To a fine, fan man. May he travel safely down that road until we meet again!

Jeruba's avatar

Happy trails, @Cruiser. Have a good ride, and come back safely when you’re ready.

Berserker's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate That was cool. I’ll raise my glass to that. :)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@Symbeline Thanks, I really am going to miss his voice here. I have alternative means of communication, but it still won’t be the same without him here. He was one of the most friendly, agreeable, down to earth jellies and he had a very comforting presence. =0)

Okay, okay, I’m done being sad. Let’s keep the party going and entice Auggie to break out her whip!

Pancakes anyone?

stardust's avatar

Congrats @Cruiser :-)

Cruiser's avatar

@stardust thank you!

SpatzieLover's avatar

Good gracious…Pick already

wilma's avatar

What the???

JilltheTooth's avatar

Maybe the home computer was still logged on?

Jeruba's avatar

I don’t think that was really Cruiser.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@Jeruba his name is taken…so how would someone else come in as him? He’s done this a few times here and on other threads now

tranquilsea's avatar

he’s messing with our miiinnds!

augustlan's avatar

He won’t be able to any more.

Lightlyseared's avatar

@augustlan that sounds rather ominuous

augustlan's avatar

Ha, I guess it does! I just meant I’d corrected the issue that was allowing him to post after his account was disabled. :p

SpatzieLover's avatar

Now back as @CruiserCruiser with a serious question

Cruiser's avatar

Vroom! ;)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Oh dear God, man! Make up your mind! lol

Aethelwine's avatar

someone shined his car =)

tranquilsea's avatar

I’m really glad you’re back @Cruiser.
