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 what I admire about you is that you make things happen. You're a lightning rod. You don't sit around thinking "wouldn't it be marvellous if...", you actually do it. This makes me slightly afraid for The Tennant, as if I heard you'd dragged him to a bar and had long and meaningful convos with him I would not be remotely surprised.

You're a terrific, witty writer, and I hope you know that.

Every time I think of you, I think of a crunchy brain tipped onto its side. I don't know what that means, but I suspect it has to do with the fact that you have the uncanny ability to see things from an entirely original and amazing perspective, and it makes you both unique and wonderful.

You're so full of talent and life-zest that I don't mind feeling boring by comparison; some stars are supposed to shine brighter than others.

Hell's bells! And YV! Your generous invitation helped me make some of the most wonderful friends of my life, and got me access to some of the most amazing writers and editors out here.

I wouldn't know half of who I know without you. You are the fandom glue that holds so many together!

Amazing writer, fighter for your beliefs, squeeing fangirl extraordinaire, all this and more!

I am proud to know you, my captain.

O Captain My Captain!

You made something great, you know, when you sent a bunch of people email because you thought they were interesting. Do you know that? You should be proud, even above and beyond all the other interesting and amazing stuff you do with yourself!

Keep seeing the world the way you do, because it keeps the rest of us on our toes.

And you are one of the most original people I know. With cool shoes and cooler glasses, usually. You know all the really cool kids, though none are quite as cool as you, and because of you, many people know each other. You start movements and junk! You're definitely a starter-upper, and though I'm more of a sleep-througher, I admire that about you. Also, you are often up in the middle of the night. Yay bad sleepers!

I love your enthusiasm and your willingness to roll up your sleeves and jump in to get something done.

You made YV! And YV made my world a better place in an "Oh brave new world, that hath such creatures in it" way. And you have this giant BRANE full of interesting things and an amazing 'Angels in America' tat and you're taking me to 'Hamlet'!

You are one of those people who, in a relatively short time, has become such a standard fixture of my flist that I can't immediately think of anything to say, because you're, well, you're iamsab, duh, that says it all! You're fun -- to read and interact with -- and active and interesting and oh, man, so many awesome things. ♥
