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

Lilydale rocks...
for great photo essays, extensive musical knowledge, being a great and wide-ranging traveler, having Jelly, and being a good friend :-)

You are just BEYOND cool. Why didn't I know you, back in the day? You have kickass music taste, your photo essays are brilliant and you're just plain awesome. I hope to get to know you better in time.

There are so many things I can say that only you would understand: THE BATS! Rainbow Reef. Tim tams. Dude, it's picture country! I only wish I could get away later this month to see you in Pareeeee. You have impeccable musical taste and have introduced me to so many bands I love.

You've got a really lovely approach to life, as though you expect it to surprise you and then you're delighted when it does.

Oh, I understand Tim Tams. I understand them only too well, Miss infinitemonkeys!!

You make me want to eat ice cream and play with action figures. And you are SO DARNED FUNNY I can't even breathe reading your entries.

Do not deny me your Lilydale-ness the next time I am on the East Coast, plz!

I suppose I should make a list, right? A Things I Like About Ms. lilydale, Esq.

You are fairly unflappable;
But when you flap, it's very, very cute;
You are a wry observer of the human condition;
You are always 'taking your little notes';
So you can share them with the rest of the class;
Your pictorial essays are hysterical;
Even when you are Peep murdering;
A true Bostonion, you love the Scooper Bowl like a native;
And finally: Jelly!

Your lists are the best! Your timelines rock! Your Mulder and Scully photo essays are made of awesome. And you review ice cream!

You are a lovely travel companion. You love music so much and even though most of it's not my taste I'll still read your crazy concert stories. You're totally a BNF in the Hem fandom! You are so cute, yet you hate shopping. It's very wrong, but it's so you. You take your camera everywhere, so we're pretty much soulmates that way. And I got to eat my very first White Castle burgers with you.I'm jealous of your adventures in Real Ice Cream. And you play Boggle! You're just an all-around great girl, you are.

Oh yes, and JERRYSLADY. Nobody can ever take that away from us, Lilydale. *hugs*

Oh, Queen of Numbered Lists, how would I live without your descriptions of yummy taste treats? And pictures, don't forget the pics.

Your intense devotion to ice cream and your love of a good walk just point to what's really there -- that you're a lover of the simple pleasures, C, and I admire your ability to get the most out of your life.

If nothing else, I would love you for lists and action figure adventures. But there's also a wealth of musical and photo goodness and ice-cream knowledge and those should be celebrated too!
