Four years ago today my daughter talked me into joining Sploofus. As I was still working, and had no time to play anything (workaholic I used to be called), I was very reluctant. I did no chat rooms nor games on the computer. The computer was for business only. My daughter convinced me I had time for a quick TQOTD. The first year I probably only did half the questions and never visited the site at all. Just accessed my question through email every once in awhile. I never was into trivia, nor movies, TV, etc. Didn’t do too well.

Due to a spinal cord injury, I was forced to leave my love…the classroom and teaching high school. I was lost, in pain and in despair. After over a year in Sploofus, I was going to quit. My daughter said there was a new vocabulary game that I should try first: Word Rounds. I did love them, but you would have LOL to watch me play! Not being a gamester, I moved the sidebar down after every answer! My times were 2 to 3 minutes.

Then I discovered the Sploofus people…and I am blessed. I have made the most wonderful friends ever here. I’m still not much of a gamester, but I have a family here on the island that have enriched my life a thousand fold. Thank you Justin, thank you daughter and thank you friends.

Can't thank Sploofus enough for meeting the greatest people ever: friendship, love and fun.

Happy My Anniversary!

Sun, Sunny, Consuelo

Happy anniversay, Sun! Since I've only been here since March, I wasn't aware of your injury, and I'm very sorry to hear about it, but as you said, I'm happy you have Sploofus and the friends you've made here! Have a terrific day!

I hope we can celebrate many, many more with you.

Sploofus has to be the most unique community on the net. A true refuge when dealing with daily aggravations becomes overwhelming.

I didn't know about your injury, either. I'm sorry you had to leave your first love, but I hope you are developing 2nd and 3rd and 4th, etc., loves. You are amazing - and I'm so glad they talked you into staying. I hope this post and everyone's respect and regard for you convinces you to stay forever!

Pass the suntan oil, please!

Hi Sun - Happy Anniversary!! And an apt name for someone so sparkly. We love ya right back - and I'm still waiting for those pictures from the mall...or did I break the camera?

Hmmmm, all my fault is it? LOL, I am glad you found friends here. I know how hard it was to be forced into "early" retirement, early as in only teaching for 35 years-possible because in NM you can start teaching at age 12 !

Love you mom-Happy Sploofuversary

Happy linen and silk anniversary (see what I did, I cross referenced the number four with days in the year, added in some multiplication then cross referenced that with contemporary relationship symbology and came up with linen and silk) that is how I roll
