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

Your writing, I loves it, because it's so detail rich and well-observed. It makes me appreciate the little quirks of life, because you make such great fiction of them.

You are working so hard to figure out who you are and what you want, balancing this new career in front of you and family and relationships and words and it's sometimes heartbreaking to watch, but always worth it!

I think you're brave. That may sound weird but I like the way that you're willing to examine your flaws and fears. I get the impression you think that's a weakness but it's not.

Some of the things I like about you: you're funny, really erudite, an incisive commentator and often a writer of fiction which is as impressive in its pursuit of uncomfortable truths as it is accomplished

I miss you! I wish we got to see more of you online these days, but I also totally respect your wisdom in knowing what's good for your happiness right now, and what's not. Because you deserve to be very happy.

You're an adorable geek! And I mean that in the very best way possible. You have rosy cheeks. Your words are always interesting and well-chosen, fannish or otherwise.

You are so unafraid to examine yourself and your life with an honest eye. I think you can be your own worst critic sometimes but there's a bravery about you which is inspiring. You have such an intelligent, open, enquiring mind as well and that is made of WIN.

Wicked smart, furiously talented, and I'd read your thoughts on paint drying.

I really admire your ability to examine yourself -- you seem very fearless in some ways, even though I know you must feel very uncertain. I want you to have all kinds of success in all kinds of things.

I was going to say You Did It! You Finished Law School! But then I remembered that you probably haven't quite finished yet, and it would be wrong to jinx you. So instead: You Are Very Close To Finishing Law School! Go you!

I totally have a fangirl crush on you.

I am glad when you're about and I miss you when you're not but I do understand the urge to step away (not that I ever have the discipline to do it). You're a terrific commentator on things fannish and non-fannish, I really like your music squee and I think you write beautifully.

I think you are wonderfully brave, and I love that you stop and examine where you are and what you are and what you want. More people could benefit from some introspection from time to time, I believe.

I will also love you forever and ever for Glass Onion. I can't imagine making the leap from XF to LJ without it. I wouldn't have met all the people I know offline, and half the ones on my flist, without it.

I like how you're incisive and thoughtful, how you recognize subtleties and nuances in issues.

You always make me think. You've got a great sense of humor and really awesome taste in books.
