As I said to @Fluther’ssmotherwiththewhip: These celebratory parties are truly great…, they give me a boost!
I thank you all very, very much!
For those that want a present in the form of a Dutch (sung) song…, check this question.
With a little luck all of the Dutch members on Fluther will post their favorite Nederlandstalige liedjes :-)
I already put one, so grab it while it’s hot!
But, of course I have a little something for all of you.
A personal gift for every Jelly in this beautiful thread.
For @saint: Especially For You!
And for @wundayatta I have this one >>>…, thanks man!
@mangeons Here, for you!
@Coloma, this one I handpicked especially for you!
For @MilkyWay it was a bit hard but I came up with a nice one too!
@Kayak8 I couldn’t find a Kayak song, like I did at 10K, but probably you’ll like this sweet song too?!
@SpatzieLover Hhhhhhhhhere, for you!
Thanks for coming, @Imadethisupwithnoforethought! Have a song!
@Hawaii_Jake I’m sorry, there was no Hawaiin version of this great piece of music!
Dankjewel, @WestRiverrat, dat je mee komt vieren! Take this!
@geeky_mama Hope you’ll like this video?!
@mommy @augustlan What would we be without you? You are the best, simply the best!
@bkcunningham Let me think about your compliment for a bit…., :-) in the meantime: Enjoy!
And another sweet @mommy @sister, err, @Marina: Thank you for everything! Here you are!
Hey @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard, nice of you to join in…, a superb bit of music, especially for you!
@Judi!! You like love songs? I hope so?!
Thank, @Keep_on_running, that is a sweet thing to say! Have this!
Hooray! Hooray! Thank you @shego! She have a present!
C’mon @chyna, hurry up, I want to know what sweet words you have for me :-) Grab a song!

bkcunningham's avatar

Ohh, @rebbel. I had no idea you felt that way about me. I feel so, so special. Thank you darling. lol ; )

JilltheTooth's avatar

I guess if I want a song I need to post a post… Congrats, @rebbel !

SavoirFaire's avatar

J. Edgar Hoover once said, “I’d sure love to put on a corset and be @rebbel‘s wench!” While I would perhaps not agree completely with the wording, the sentiment of appreciation is something I think we all share. Congratulations on the 20K, and have fun storming the castle!

mazingerz88's avatar

Crap I’m late! Congrats @rebel! You’re the man!!!

mazingerz88's avatar

chyna's avatar

Congratulations on this achievement! Let the conga line begin!

rebbel's avatar

So, for now I think I will have to go to sleep a bit, but not before I also thank @wilma I blushed…!, @JilltheTooth Noooo, I would have made a special remark for you anyway!, @SavoirFaire I think that those were complimentary words, right? About that drag queen…:-)
And @mazingerz88 Well, the man….., I come close, I agree ;-)
And Especially for you all I am shamelessy plugging a piece of music from a dear friend of mine.

@chyna chyna, chyna, chyna: I find you sweet! Please enjoy the same song as those four above you I am pretty sure you will like it!

Oops, forgot @mazingerz88‘s request: I found an underwater nude

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Congratulations to you, sir! I’ve brought along a full ton of chocolate, and a hundred barrels of rum. I’m all about over-indulgence at parties, ya know? And several pretty serving wenches, to see to your needs.

CongARRRHtulations @rebbel !!

Coloma's avatar

@rebbel Thank You! Great tune!

gailcalled's avatar

@rebbel: Personally I find you really annoying (although MIlo likes you,) What could be more vexing than your almost-perfect command of standard English, idiomatic English, idiosyncratic English, English vernacular, British English and regional English slang?

And don’t get me started about your sense of humor, your sense of the absurd and your sense of irony. (Go be clever in your own native tongue and stop setting the standard so high.)

janbb's avatar

“Rebbel, Rebbel – how could they know?
Hot damn I love you so!”

I had a family emergency or I would have been rocking at your party sooner. Since I am too old and too far away to be your girlfriend and too young to be your Bubby, I will have to be content with being a Fluther-friend.

You are a dear person and a wonderful Jelly! So nu – have a baby and make me even prouder already!

Mazel Tov on the 20K!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@rebbel Hey, what am I chopped liver?

janbb's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Then I must be gefilte fish! But he did say he’ll be back.

downtide's avatar

Congrats @Rebbel! Awesome work.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@janbb I got the same word. It’s just his responses are so cool I was really looking forward to it.

rebbel's avatar

I like you too Milo!
@gailcalled From that second sentence I only understood the words English and British.
So much for my almost-perfect command of it, eh (the English)?
The second part of your reply I can only agree with :-)
But serious now; your praising words (always) make me feel grand!
Sometimes they make me wonder if you are not kidding with me, but I know you to be sincere so I believe you.
A big thank you, gail!

I can only wish that your family emergency was not too dramatic and that all is well, @janbb.
The pirate party is of course futile in the light of such things as personal misery, although it would have been nice to have you around, if only for the reason you wouldn’t have had the tsores.
You are here now, and I thank you much!

Here, @Jude, take all the sweeties you can grab!
Thank you, @Lightlyseared!
And I thank you as well, @MissAnthrope, with some beschuit met muisjes!
@downtide Really nice that you hopped in too! Thanks for that!

Well, that means I thanked everybody, right?

Oops, there is of course one Jelly that deserves a special little gift; @Adirondackwannabe, Thank you for showing up thrice :-) and sorry that I forgot you in the first batch…
A music video of a band from someone that is close to me my lil’ bro: >>>>!
Hope you like it!

Bye bye, all!

I raise a special toast of honey mead and the finest cheeses and bread to our Netherlands Pirate comrade!

@janbb @fundevogel has always been a woman.

janbb's avatar

You know, I think I keep relearning that and being surprised anew.

SpatzieLover's avatar

I learned that same thing on this thread @janbb. Avatar psychology is something I’d like to study, now ;)
