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 unspeakably awesome, and I really hope I get the chance to meet you in person someday.

And I suppose I will put my name out there, too: loligo

I am glad to know you. I love your thoughtful posts, laced as they are with a dry wit and keen insight. I think it would be quite something to meet you

I really love reading your posts because they exhibit the thoughtfulness I am incapable of. I admire you greatly. You have a flair for diplomacy and clarity of expression even during heated debate that is possibly unmatched.

I love your posts. You are like a stealth poster, so intelligent in such a dry, quiet way.

I feel vaguely anti-feminist saying this, but: I admire your mothering skills, and especially your patience with and admiration of your daughter.

(You just thought of times when you weren't patient. Stop it! That's better.)

I'm still embarrassed about not recognizing you at Wiscon last year! ::rolls eyes::

I love what you have to say, and the thoughtful generosity you bring to everything you do. You seem to me to be gracious in word and deed, as well as talented and smart and insightful.

You are one of those people I wouldn't have met without Glass Onion or that WW group (TheWestThing, was it?), but I don't even feel like I know you from fandom, I feel like I know because we were neighbors or something. I love that you hearing about your children as they grow, and I admire you so much for being such a great mother to them.

I am also delighted that I *have* met you, and I think we need to do it again someday. That was before even Chuckles was born!

You're awesome. Steathily funny, smart, and thoughtful.

I hope you make it to VVC again some year, b/c I would love to meet you again and spend time talking with you. You're just a delightful, thoughtful, wry presence.

I've loved getting to know you through reading your posts about your beautiful children, your church, the radio station, all of it. You have a keen eye for detail and a wit that is clear and crisp, but cannot mask the bigness of your warm heart.

edited for spelling stupidity!

I haven't been commenting much (... because I suck) but I really like reading about your family. You write about them with much wit and love, I feel all warm and fuzzy when I read your journal. And you're smart and insightful whether you're writing up your life or fandom.

I wish we were neighbors. I still see you in blue glasses.

You are fantastic!

You are wise and funny and so very smart, but always in a way that draws others in even though you're probably way the heck smarter than most of us. :) You are a terrific parent, and you balance your life in fascinating and amazing ways.
