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

... but I see names I recognize in the comments, so here goes.

Hello, welcome, welcome. Can't say much except your icon is bloody marvellous but welcome anyway.

I can't take credit for anything but the good taste to grab it (winterfish made it).

Your icons are always fabulous -- I've snagged a few before. ::points up::

Re: (someone you don't know)
You sent me the due South pilot ages ago, and it has since been passed on to another good home (arliss, I think), but I hope you know I still appreciate your generosity. I'm glad every time I see you around fandom.

Re: (someone you don't know)
You're just whip smart and widely read, and one of the people on my flist I'd especially love to meet.

Yay! I am very happy to see you here, and very happy to be getting to know you on LJ.

Re: (someone you don't know)
You feel like one of the emissaries of the Real World on my flist--not in a bad or dull way, but in a tip-of-the-iceberg way, where it's clear that you have this whole rich inner and outer life and we get to see parts of it. I really like that.

Re: (someone you don't know)
You feel like a kindred spirit to me. (Now, which one of us is Anne Shirley and which is Diana?)
