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

Hello. I've been lurkingly reading posts on your LJ forever, having been pointed in their direction by coffeeandink as a rule. You're a marvellously lucid and humane commentator.

You are one of my favorite things about the internet and one of my favorite people! I love that you are funny and smart and an awesome writer and sane but always willing to giggle hysterically with me over things like black spandex screens and womb worms.

You're so awesome and funny and brave and true. Even though I'm older than you, you're kind of a hero to me.

Funny, you're funny, and you have a fine appreciation of the absurd, which is not always the same thing.

You've lived enough adventure for someone twice your age, and I love how you turn it all into wisdom and humor and then share it with the world. Thank you for your generosity!

Another mostly-lurker in your journal -- I always look forward to your reports on cracktastic manga/anime & thoughtful posts on fandom imbroglios.

First off, your tales of jello and peeing actresses have been the highlight of my week. That and though you're a Famous Author you still slum it with us fangeeks.

AND, I still have to talk to you about this Tokyopop project. I will call you this weekend. I WILL. I'll even take you out to brunch so I can pick your brain, howzat?

But, yeah. You're pretty amazing, Mani child. Plus you wrote me Logan/Weevil slash back in the day.

I just read you through another person's friends list, but I always appreciate your writing, your thoughts, and your honesty. Thank you.

You have a good appreciation of the absurd.
