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

I think you're marvelous. It gives me pleasure to see you post. You care about people, and you act in furtherance of that--in denial of the cascade of entropy that is life/the universe, really. You put great thought into what you say, which is why (unlike some of us) you post somewhat infrequently, but that makes what you say the more valuable.

You're also hella funny, and a marvelous writer. I'm incredibly thankful we got to be friends.

Also, I really really love your quotedumps. *grins*

I appreciate your common-sense perspective (strangely rare online!), your dayglo icon, and your vid recs. Also, your quotedumps never fail to improve my day.

You're a very sane, witty presence online, you always have interesting things to say and I am always happy to see you post.

Also, may I third or fourth or fifth the praise for your quotedumps. They are marvellous in every way

You're so very thoughtful and brave. I admire you. And I do a little dance when I make the quotedump.

The first word that springs to mind when I think of you is "integrity," because I so admire yours, how it goes bone deep, how you strive to be a moral and brave person. Plus you're warm, funny, generous, and observant.

To: Best Roomie in the World. Thanks for letting me cling to you during social-phobia-related freakouts. You are the best!

Also awesome for: 1) QUOTEDUMPS, especially when my quotes are on them (... what?) and 2) the witty, interesting, left-of-main insights you bring into fandom. It's always such fun reading your takes on things.

(Please to note that I do not mention the quote dumps.)

Your kindness and mercy, if I could use such a phrase. And your lovely fic. I'm glad to see these, out on lj.

Every time a post from you pops up on my friendslist, I'm happy. You've got a dry sense of humor and a terrific perspective on the insanity of online interaction. Plus, you're a wonderful writer and collect quotes! Yay you!

I love your integrity. You're true to yourself and your values even in sticky situations, and you approach life so thoughtfully.

You are awesome. Smart, sensible, thoughtful. The world needs more of that in general.

I just plain like you. You're thoughtful and caring and intelligent and just so *present* in life, and I'm so glad I know you.
