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

Well, all right. copygirl

And, K, you are funny, pointed, real, and the person I most want to have a pint with in real life. We're headed your way next summer, so beware.

You are one of the coolest people I know. I always think about laughing in the dressing rooms at Mall of America while we picked out your dress for your wedding. And you singing in the back of S's car on the way back from Chicago sushi and martini night. I love that you have so many diverse interests and talents and I wish you the mostest happiness in the world.

You're another one I'd want right there with me in the foxhole. You've had plenty of shit thrown at you but there's just something brilliantly unstoppable about you. You're a force of nature, girl.

You are a PROFESSIONAL FEMALE FOOTBALL PLAYER. How effin' cool is that? And how many really good football players are also Queens of Grammar Usage? Also, you have made the most adorable Button. And were kind enough to drive me around Minneapolis! You're one of the strongest women I know, in every way. Plus, you're super-cute.

I think it would be quite something to meet you and if you do get to London, look me up. I admire your strength in adversity and I remember your writing being rather beautiful too.

You are one of the strongest people I know and have more heart than half the universe.

My life has been greatly enriched by knowing you and you are one of the people I find consistently admirable. And I'm a pretty hard judge.

You are so amazing. You play football, write, and are the mother to a beautiful little girl. You are strong, and you are brave enough to live life on your own terms. You impress me so much.

Button is damned lucky to have as amazing a mom as you.

You're one of those people who has this solid core that you wouldn't compromise--I admire how brave you are, and your determination to stay true to yourself, and I think that the Button will be lucky to grow up and see those qualities modeled.

I still think of red pandas when I think of you: small but deceptively strong, and still huggably cute. You are a powerful woman, a great mother, an awesome writer and a very good friend. I want to have you around when the zombies come. Also you are so funny you make me snort.

You are like the Tardis. There is WAY more on the inside then normal physics would allow...

I think that is possibly the nicest comparison anyone's ever made about me. *sniffle*

You're just a pleasure to have around, and you are strong in ways that go far beyond the visible/physical. You rock.
