Congratulations you Colossal Squid, 20k Lurve for the man who writes 20k words per posts (all words of wisdom though) :D You’re definitely one of those people Fluther would not be the same without. Lower the drawbridge, @Daloon is moving into the castle.

@Fred931 Should have edited you’re previous post, lol

@markyy, what did you just do man? you found one of the atlantis rewards!

Oops I did it again :P And again, and again! Want more?

timtrueman's avatar

Huge congrats! And to get it on the discovery of the Colossal Squid award too…impressive!

Da Loon, Da Loon, Da One-and-Only Looooooonnnnnn!

Congratulations to a man so honest that Abe himself would be jealous – a man who always wears his heart on his sleeve (he must have really long arms) – a man whose nom de Fluther implies insanity, when, in reality, he is often the more sane among us – a man who, if you ask, will explain how little he thinks of himself, which is amazing considering how much we think of you!

Here’s to one of the more uniquely lovable, thoughtful and verbose jellies in the lagoon – Daloon!

shrubbery's avatar

Hey daloon! Congratulations :)
Your answers are always so genuine, you deserve all the lurve you get.
Hope this brings a smile to your face and you have a great day.

Cartman's avatar

WHOA!!! I am stunned with awe and simply not worthy.

But a bit jealous

laureth's avatar

Daloon, I’ve been a big fan of yours ever since I found… that other site. My lurve hasn’t counted for you in ages, but I keep giving it anyway. You’re the pepper of awesomeness and the salt of sense. Congrats on the milestone.

Congratulations, Daloon!

No, really, YAY!

Congratulations, @daloon. You are so brave and honest.

janbb's avatar

Daloon, I’m awed by your honesty and willingness to expose your issues as well as your helpfulness to others. You have an amazing ability to type too!

I don’t always read all that you write but I will defend to the death your right to write it!

Congratualtions, daloon – couldn’t have happened to a nicer Jelly!

rooeytoo's avatar

congrats and salutations to Daloon, you have intriguing views and opinions. But best of all are your thought provoking questions. You have been the catalyst for a lot of introspection and that is a good thing!

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

Wow, congrats!! Daloon puts so much thought into his answers, he must only be able to answer a few questions a day. Well done, but please don’t let it stop here!

dpworkin's avatar

Very pleased that such a thoughtful and self-revelatory man has entered the Pantheon. Long may you wave, Daloon.

PandoraBoxx's avatar

No one could say it better than @cprevite! Congratulations, Daloon!

I think you should celebrate by really getting a map of the world tattooed on your butt!

Congratulations to a man who is welcome to slog around in my gray matter any time! Just keep wearing the comfortable slippers. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving jelly!!

Jude's avatar

Woah! Another Jelly!!

Daloon, good sir, when I’m having a rough go, and need a little help sorting out this muddled mind of mine, you always seem to pull through with some helpful advice/ info. A bit ol’ thank-you for that! Something tells me that 30K, for you, will be another walk in the park.

Oh this wonderful! I can’t think of a jelly among us who could fill up the 20k castle better than Daloon!

patg7590's avatar

daloon, you are a wonderful jelly. Always thoughtful and sincere in your answers; provoking and complex in your questions. You are the only jelly that can make me take a butt avatar completely seriously. Thank you for being a part of Fluther. I will try to be awake next time to start the 40k lurve party

Psychedelic_Zebra's avatar

While I gave you a private congrats, might as well join the lurve whore party and do it in public. doing it in public with @daloon’s ass might get me arrested! oh well, it’s worth it.

tinyfaery's avatar

Well well. I knew you’d get to 20K quickly, but you have done it in the least amount of time, I think. You really are a great asset to the collective, even if you do nut-out once in a awhile. Congrats! Now get your ass out of my face. :)

20K is a real mile stone, enjoy it and just remember that you might have realy helped someone out along the way. Congrats!

JONESGH's avatar

@lukiarobecheck I think Daloon has really helped everyone here at one point or another.

lukiarobecheck's avatar

Indeed, he has. :-)

bhec10's avatar

I’m on my way there :)

jackm's avatar

You are the person on this site who has drawn me to stay. After reading some of your questions and answers the first day I visited, I realized this wasn;t yahoo answers.

Congrats on the milestone, But you have a lot more to show for it than just a number in parentheses.

andrew's avatar

CONGO RATS! Your thoughtful, hypothetical conundrums are one of the main reasons we kept the ‘discussion’ category. We’re very happy you’re here.

Christian95's avatar

Congrats daloon you’re the user that always makes me laugh and at the same time you give very relevant and helpful answers.Be happy with your 20K LURVE.I hope that I will be there someday when you’ll be at ! million lurve I guess.

Congratulations to everyone’s favorite dirty butt crack!

Allie's avatar

Congrats, Daloon. You’re the prettiest butt on Fluther. ;)

drdoombot's avatar

20k. Wow. Daloon, thanks for being a Jellie. Your questions/answers were one of the things that kept me coming back here when I just started. You’re also one of the first people I added to my personal fluther.

Congratulations on this milestone!

Resonantscythe's avatar

Usually I just say congrats real quick.

This time though I’ve actually got something to say. Though I don’t post much here that’s simply a matter of I’m more of a listener(reader here I guess). And thanks to that i take joy in reading Daloon’s complete, thoughtful answers that always remember that people have emotions that are not easily controlled and it’s not as simple as “just get over it” or “just stop it”. And the days on which I can read his heartfelt answers feel richer for it.

Now excuse me while I un-pucker my lips.

arnbev959's avatar

Congratulations daloon.

I’ve never actually thought about your name before. @cprevite‘s posts got me thinking. I always take it for granted, but it’s a cool name.

DALOON. Daloon daloon daloon.

Very interesting indeed.

Have a happy 20K Day, daloon.

wundayatta's avatar

Aw, Jeez, people! You’ve gone and made me all choked up. I had no idea.

I had a presentation to give this morning, so it wasn’t until after 11 that I saw I had crossed the barrier overnight. Then I looked for the question (thanks, @Fred931), and I think the answers were around 58. I didn’t know if I could handle it, so I answered all the questions I was interested in, and caught up on all of my activity, and only then did I put my cursor over this question.

‘Should I press it? Should I wait?’

I pressed it before I could think any more, because I probably would have chickened out, if I hadn’t. I am truly overwhelmed and I thank each and every one of you.

Why did I press it? I have two rules. First, I have a rule that I should be honest and complete about everything in my life that I talk about. It is often not very easy to do that, although it’s gotten easier with practice. Of course, that “completeness” clause makes some of my comments a little daunting, I guess.

Second, for the most part, I won’t let myself edit anything. It comes out as it comes out, and if I fuck it up, so be it. This rule is not a hard and fast one like the other one, but it is rare that I will go back and try to change something. It is this rule, applied to action, that allowed me to press the link to this question.

I do want people to pay attention to me, but I’m glad, in a way, that it is a hidden readership. Or, at least, that I don’t have to see it all the time. I’m also glad that you have let me see it, because even though it’s hard for me to take, I really do want to be thought well of.

Well, I think I’ll go find a bit of tissue and try to settle myself down, now. Thanks again! You are wonderful people!

[Oh man! Who’d a thunk it?]

augustlan's avatar

Congratulations, daloon! It couldn’t have happened to a nicer ass. ;-)

forestGeek's avatar

Holy crap Daloon, way to go! Well deserved 20,000+ lurve for a lot of really great and thoughtful answers and questions. Cheers to many more.

Aethelwine's avatar

Congrats @daloon. Fluther would not be the same without you.

Jeruba's avatar

@daloon, that’s 20,000 points of real lurve, not fake lurve. Sincerely meant and freely given, and all yours. I congratulate you.

MissAnthrope's avatar

@daloon – I just noticed you made 20k and I was so excited to think I could be the first to congratulate you on this achievement.. and was a little sad to see someone beat me to it because you are, quite honestly, one of my all-time favorite Flutherites! It would have been a real thrill and a personal honor to be able to congratulate you.

I’m not so good with the mushy stuff, so this is going to come across way less emotional than I feel, but I want to say how glad I am that you are a member of the community. I always enjoy reading your questions and answers. Your questions are always so interesting and things that would never occur to me to ask, but then lead into some really awesome discussions. Your answers are always well-thought out and enjoyable to read and I find myself agreeing.

What can I say, I’m a huge fan. And, I’m only sort of kidding when I say that I may be responsible for about a quarter of your lurve. ;) My most heart-felt congratulations on a truly well-deserved 20k! Maybe I’ll get to buy you a beer some day.

SpatzieLover's avatar

Congratulations To You! I lurve to get a daily mooning from you @daloon!

Fluther is a great place due in part to your thought provoking questions and your in depth answers!

Looking forward to witnessing you get to 30K

@fireinthepriory Oh, you were? I didn’t know there was such a society. Can you send me application papers?? ;-)

Blondesjon's avatar

Congratulations man.

I love you because you do get it, even if your thing is to act like you don’t. Even if I never agree with you on anything again you still have my respect because you are unapologetic about being you when confronted (no matter what you may protest to the contrary).

You are the sanest lunatic I’ve ever known.

@Blondesjon You know, I could explain that (well, try to), but this isn’t the place.

Even if I never agree with you on anything again

Have we ever agreed before??? :P

@all others. What can I say? Wow! Thanks! I’d say something else, but it’s only cliches that come to mind. Oh what you hell! You mean a lot to me! You are the people who make me feel like spending so much time here. It’s a wonderful community, isn’t it?

@daloon Your moon eclipses all others. There is no one like you. Fluther would be a much less rich medium without your heartfelt and pungent postings. Many felicitations on your achievement—all of them well-deserved!

nikipedia's avatar

Yikes, I worked for a few minutes and missed this. Congrats, old man. Glad I know ya. The internet is a better place thanks to you. You have seen me through some rough patches and I will always be grateful for your friendship.

fireside's avatar

Yay! daloon, you 20k stud!

Congrats on sticking around and making it to the big time : )

Sorry I missed the party!

wundayatta's avatar

This is a particularly good time for me to get a few more nice comments. Thanks @fireside, @nikipedia and everyone else who has posted earlier. I’m feeling a bit low today. I don’t suppose there’s any real reason to be low, but I’m making them up a few in my head.

janbb's avatar

@daloon It must be that kind of day – I’m feeling a bit down today too. Hope yours improves.

SpatzieLover's avatar

@janbb & @daloon Big Monday (((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))) to you both!

:0) Here’s a something to make you laugh!

janbb's avatar

@SpatzieLover Thanks! That’s one of my favorite clips. If I could dance like Donald O“Connor, I’d neve be down. :-)

SpatzieLover's avatar

@janbb My son tries. It’s a great scene! If that wouldn’t have cheered you then “Good Morning” sung by Debbie Reynolds surely would do the trick! ;) Happy Monday!

majorrich's avatar

I am actually feeling pretty good today! This is the first day home since I shipped my Mother off to live with my brother for the next few months. I’ve not been nagged at, drooled on, nor called by any of my silly childhood nicknames for the whole day. I even broke wind in the kitchen! HA!

Good for you @majorrich !
