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

You are a very good mix of intellectual discourse, appreciation of the entertainment value all around us, and just plain squee.

You are diplomatic and insightful and clever and deeply supportive of your friends. I understand you also make one hell of an oreo cheesecake, and that you are extremely thoughtful even in the face of biological urgency that would incapacitate lesser people.

You know, everyone else is gonna say bunches of other stuff, so I'll just say this. You have a very generous spirit. In these strange days that so often goes overlooked. But it shouldn't.

Re: that said, I shall participate!
You've lead me into various fandoms that terrified me, but I've never minded going along for the ride.

That said, I mostly blame my involvement in fandom on you:) In the best way possible. You're smart, confident, thinky, talented and incredibly generous with yourself and your brain and all that talent!

You're the best face of fandom - super-smart and incisive but with a big side of wit and heart. You have this air of being incredibly balanced and grounded but without a hint of dullness.

Besides admiring your awesome writing skills, I love the way that you manage to maintain a cool head in the midst of internet craziness.

I hope you already know how awesome I think you are, but if not, I think you are one of the best people I know.

You can bake! And love dogs. And let me sleep at your house more than once, and are smart and athletic and environmentally friendly!

Re: that said, I shall participate!
How does one quantify a cofax?

(i) 10% voracious curiosity about the world;
(ii) 15% snark but to leaven it;
(iii) 20% fairness and justice, despite severe provocation;
(iv) 5% baking skills;
(v) 30% smarts that are never flaunted but are occasionally used in pursuit of (ii) and (iii);
(vi) 20% beautiful, taut, honest writing in fiction and in LJ;
(vii) 5% WEAPONS GRADE AWESOME

Yes, I know that's more than 100% WHICH IS MY POINT!!! ELEVENTY!

Re: that said, I shall participate!
I admire how thoughtful you are about so many things. My brane couldn't begin to contain a fraction of the things you've thought deeply about and I admire that so much. My shallowness salutes your deepness.

Plus, you are fun, and pimp things and fandom (and life) just wouldn't be the same without you! I am so glad we stumbled into the X-files at the same time, because even though we posted in the same SF forum on Usenet, we never met there.

Re: that said, I shall participate!
I'll be honest: you sort of scare me. That being said, I also sort of wish I were you.
