Spread some love?

There's storm-force crappity blowing in, with fresh fronts of whatEVAH moving in from the south, bringing with them a frisson of meh. This is displeasing. Today, in the midst of all the meh, someone said very nice things to me and while it didn't transform my week or suddenly make me fart strawberry flavoured and have passing songbirds whistling Beautiful Day in time to my tippy-tappy footsteps, it was very, very nice. I'd like to pass the feeling on.

I always liked the idea of that snaps cup meme except they're always hosted in the LJ of someone I don't know from Adam about how someone writes TEH BEST Black Beauty/Skippy the Kangaroo crossover slash. Well, I exaggerate because of the meh, but you know what I mean. Instead let us have some love about people I give a bugger about
(or indeed, people I don't give a bugger about. I don't mind if I don't know you. It's all good).

Let us reduce the perilously high ambient level of crappity. Here's how it works:
1. Comment with your username or someone else's
2. Post a link to your comment on your own LJ, so that your friends will know where to find you -- or just point them in this direction so they can say good things and have good things said about them
3. People can reply to your comment with reasons why the individual concerned is Donna-like in his or her gorgeousness

IP logging is off. Anonymity enabled. No name will get no comments, promise.

(ETA caveat removed and to explain that I have had a good day. My boss said really good things about and to me and I am getting an unasked for raise, so I am not in need of further nice things. Which is not to say it's not *great* to hear but I wanted to host, in an invisible sort of way, a carnival of love)

Son of ETA: There's a p2 now, SHE HINTED. You could spread the love even further in a non-icky sort of way. I am off for a kip now. Be excellent to one another and feel free to add your name to the end of the thing.

ETA, the revenge: On p3 now. Please feel free to carry on. Incapable of sentences sodding coherent I am, so you'll have to amuse yourselves

My Paul Westerberg lovin' sista! You are awesome with your stories of workplace hilarity and your common sense approach to fandom. *hearts*

You are a good deal more than the sum of your snark. You are also smart and keenly analytical and fair.

I know they say that fame on the internet is an oxymoron but you're the nearest thing I know to one, what with the law and everything. You're funny and smart but as someone said above, most of all, you're fair.

You make me literally LOL on many of the occasions when I am reading all the doings of my sekrit friends on the intarweb, because, y'know, closet babies. Plus you are Prufrock's Love.

You can tell a laugh-inducing story at will and you graciously host the best Snack Food Deathmatch I know! (edits to say) And OMG, the stories of Poodle and Sister Notanun and Terry Boot and ... so many others. You are so made of the internet win. And you're famous for bein' so excellent as to make up a LAW. You, Snacky, are a LAWMAKER!

No one brings the FBOFW snark like you do. Bless.

I wouldn't know what the hell was going on in fandom without knowing you.

You are a stitch and a good friend to so very many.

And your workplace stories NEED to be a book, like NOW. Seriously, who has a coworker who castrates cats on their kitchen table but you?

And you have this Jane Austen-like ability to point out human foibles while still being humane. That's a real rare talent on the internet and everywhere.

My friend Michael is a fan of yours. He sits next to me at work and keeps asking what I am laughing at and then I show him and he laughs as well. Then he tells his boyfriend Pierre. PEOPLE IN FRANCE ARE LAUGHING AT YOUR STORIES. YOU ARE INTERNASHUNALLY FAMUS!

There is no one like unto the Snacky! All shall bow down before her Snackaliciousness and Despair!

Honestly, you're fabulous. Forthright and commonsensical, able to see through the bullshit and call it for what it is, and able to make the rest of us laugh about even stuff that makes you craxy (I still miss the Poodle stories).

Not every who gets an Internet Law named after them really deserves it: you really do, and it's an honor to know you.
