You’ve always been one of my favorite Jellies, Marina, but you already know that. It’s always a pleasure to read your intellectual and insightful answers and you are, without a doubt, one of the very best Flutherites in the neighborhood. A huge CONGRATULATIONS to you on a very deserving 30k lurve. An exemplary achievement on your part. Very well done.

Congratulations on reaching such a milestone. Your answers are always thoughtful and insightful. Well deserved and well earned! Take some pictures of your island for us! Maybe we’ll all chopper and drop in for a weenie roast. (I don’t propose a clam bake. I don’t like clams) ;-)

aprilsimnel's avatar

Wowwowwowwowwowwow!!!! Two in one week!

@marinelife, you’re such a great jelly. This is wonderful. Long may you swim in the warm, coral-filled, aqua waters!

Congrats on 30K!

kevbo's avatar

@Marinelife, I think you’ve had the fastest rise to the top of any jelly, and you certainly have done everything to deserve it. Congrats!

rebbel's avatar

Marina, i really like the way you answer us here on Fluther.
Many a time i find myself realising that there are also other views on a subject.
Not only do i like your views, but you put them (for me anyway, since English ain’t my native language) in clear and understandable wording.
And you made feel welcome and worthy.
Thank you very much!
Be good.

wundayatta's avatar

@marinelife Welcome to the island! You have your choice of beach cabanas and beach boys. There’s also a wonderful room in the big house, windows open to the breezes and deck. Anything you could want. Sailing and Parasailing and wind surfing. Kayaks and motor boats and deep sea fishing. Whale watching and coral reef scuba diving. And the bartender on the North beach is not to be believed.

Massages every day—as many as you want. Music of your choice—live music. Did you know they actually have a different band for every style of music there is? And don’t worry about fluthering. They have a little implant you can install, and you can fluther any time you want. So if you wanted to do it between sentences, you could.

There’s more. So much more. But I think I’ll wait until more people arrive.

In any case, it’s wonderful to have the company, especially your company. I respect your advice tremendously and when I see you’ve answered before me, I always scroll down to see if you’ve left me anything to say. Welcome, welcome and

janbb's avatar


You are a dear, wise and knowledgeable Jelly and one of my favorite posters to read. When I see you have answered a question, I know there’s not much that needs adding. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you and sharing life in PMs.

Now you have the tough job of keeping -daloon—wundayatta in line until Chuckie and gailcalled join you on the island.

Mazel Tov! (I am retiring the™ for a bit.)

ubersiren's avatar

Holy Mackerel, Marina! You did it! I always value what you have to say. You are so kind, so knowledgeable, willing to help, sincere, sweet, lovely, and just fantastic. You were one of the nicest jellies to me early on. I love that you’re here and I lurve you!

nebule's avatar

Man Alive! That’s a great job @Marinelife. Truly awesome:-) Congrats congrats!!!!!

Jeruba's avatar

@marinelife, you are the jelly of jellies to me, personable, well-rounded, generous-spirited, intelligent, articulate, and a wee bit mysterious. You belong in the pantheon of flutherdom. Much better than a pedestal and a shrine, you get a primo spot on that marvelous island! Sincere congratulations.

rangerr's avatar

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ♥
It’s a party for two on the island! bowchickawowow.

You are such an amazing jelly. One of the first to welcome me, I believe.
Well deserved 30k :)

tinyfaery's avatar

@marinelife Since day one, you have been part of my fluther experience. I can’t imagine this place without you. Congrats. You should have been first.

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

Wow! CONGRATS marinelife!

Marina aqua Marina.CONGRATS!!! An astonishingly impressive milestone long may it continue,well deserved ;¬}

AstroChuck's avatar

@marinelife- Aw, crap. I wanted to be the one to post this question just as I had when you broke the 10K mark and then the 20K one. If I’d have noticed you were that close to 30 I would have kept checking in today. I figured I had untli tonight. Anyway,
CONGRATULATIONS!!! You truly are a Superstarfish in a sea of jellies! I’ve no doubt you’ll be first to 40K.

Jeruba's avatar

By the way, @wundayatta, nice job spinning the new fluther mythology. I want to know if there is also an orchestra for those whose musical tastes don’t run to bands. And—are there balloons?

MissAusten's avatar

I’ve been wanting and excuse to get myself a burqini! Where’s the pool?!

Congrats @marinelife!

Thank you, @chyna. There’s no such thing as too many balloons.

mangeons's avatar

Wow, wow, wow! Congrats Marinelife (Though I still think of you as your old persona). You were one of the first people I met on Fluther. You are always kind, caring, witty, and always willing to lend a helpful hand when possible. You are one of the greatest additions to this site, and I honestly don’t have a clue what we’d do without your witty charm, seemingly endless knowledge, and allover wonderful personality! Congratulations a thousand times over!


FireMadeFlesh's avatar

What an amazing acheivement, and the second in recent times! Congratulations Marinelife, you thouroughly deserve it!

Nullo's avatar

Nice going, Marinelife! A fine accomplishment.

Marina Marinelife! You rock! Congrats on your big accomplishment.

Fred931's avatar

Damn! 2nd to 30k by less than a week! Great try, though!

CONWATERLATIONS!!! i <3 you. (:

jeanmay's avatar

Marinelife, you are always a calm voice in a jelly-storm, you bring peace with each post. Congratulations on this fantastic achievement!!

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

I’m late again. :(

@marinelife, you are one of my favorite jellies. You’re always intelligent and well-spoken, and a great contributor to this place. Fluther wouldn’t be the same without you. Congratulations on this huge achievement! :)

casheroo's avatar

oh my gosh, congratulations @marinelife!!

dalepetrie's avatar

My gosh, I feel so….insignificant with my measly 16k. Well played,my only regret is that all these great Jellies are moving out of the 20k hacienda and into the 30k estates before I even get to move into the 20k hacienda myself. Congratulations on the most amazing accomplishment.

shego's avatar

Congrats @marinelife for hitting 30k from under the sea!

cookieman's avatar

Congratulations to a jelly amongst jellies and an outstanding human being.

When I remind myself of all that is good about Fluther, Marina is at the top of the list.

Much lurve to you my dear.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

lol @AstroChuck‘s term “superstarfish”.

And seconded.

marinelife's avatar

Thanks to all. I am afloat on your lurve.

I love Fluther and a lot of that is because of all the great jellies that inhabit the Collective.

Your wisdom, your humanity, your nobility of spirit, your senses of humor all inspire me.

wundayatta's avatar

@Jeruba There are orchestras. A full symphony orchestra with chorus, several chamber ensembles, and some weird Job Cagey ensemble that I have no idea what to call, but they make some really far out music. They come with a dance group, as well.

Everyone is required to wear black tie (so far, that’s just me—I don’t know what Marina will wear), but it’s easy. The tailors are there to make everything comfortable, and you all get valets to help with all the tricky parts (like tying the tie).

Things, all in all, are very nice on the island. But never fear. There is The Project to keep things interesting. I can’t say any more about that until you reach the island, except that it blew my mind when I found out about it.

BoBo1946's avatar

@marinelife you are very welcome my friend!

augustlan's avatar

Marina, you were one of the very first people I bonded with here… a huge part of the draw for me were people like you! I’m thrilled that you’ve reached this milestone, but I’ll miss you at the 20K mansion. Congratulations!

breedmitch's avatar

Congratulations! Well deserved.

IBERnineD's avatar

Way to be totally freaking amazing!!! Awesome!!

shrubbery's avatar

Wow I’m so late. I’m so sorry!
But Marinelife, you are definitely without a doubt one of my favourite jellies. You are one of the first friends I had on Fluther and I love everything you contribute to the site. You are a beautiful person, keep it up! Congratulations!

forestGeek's avatar

This is such great news, yay! You have been one of my fave jellies from my first days here, and when I see that you have answered, I know it will be well thought out and honest. This accomplishment and party are so very well deserved. A big congratulations and cheers to you!!

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

30K is quite an accomplishment.

You are one of my favourite jellies and I truly value your articulate and well though out contributions. You are someone special to many of us.
