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 awesome and snarky and brilliant and funny and the only reason I know anything about British politics. I miss you bringing more British politician imbroglios and alternative music to brighten my life.

Re: infinitemonkeys
Thank you, that's lovely of you to say so. I could write more about politician imbroglios but the utter, utter crapness of the Labour government -- who are seriously "get off my side, you're making my side look stupid" writ large -- makes me want to weep.

And while I am here, can I thank you for making me think more deeply about my personal political attitudes than I have at any time since I was at university. It's a brave thing that you do, and I really appreciate it. (also, that stuff you said about snarky and brilliant? That's you, that is)

Re: infinitemonkeys
I think you're strong and brave and smarter than a box of Einsteins. You're changing the world, one electron at a time, and I hope you realize what a difference you're making.

You deserve all the accolades one could conceive of. You're fabulous, and I'm proud and honored to call you a friend.

Infinitemonkeys is consistently and thoroughly awesome in many, many snarkily brilliant ways :)

Re: infinitemonkeys
I don't think we actually know each other, but I have to tell you that I'm happy every time you comment on one of my friends' threads, because I know I'll either learn something or snork up a piece of lung from the laughing.
