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

You know, I always wanted to participate in a snaps cup, but I shied away for the same reason you did. But I know everyone here, so...I'm in.

You see! Why should there be no snaps cup for the likes of us? Just because we don't write J2 slash? The humanity!

Okay. More seriously. I look forward to your posts because they're funny and you always bring the lovely snark to your stories about your life. And some of your photography is beautiful and some of it is witty and occasionally it is astonishing.

You are girly without being wimpy, you are smart and snarky in all the right ways, and I'm delighted we're still friends! It's always a pleasure to "see" your face. May there be more drinkies in Chicago...

I'm really looking forward to meeting you, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing great shoes, talking about good food, other fun things, and finding yet another reason to love Chicago :-)

You rock, Kristen. And I can say that having met you in person. You are every bit as convivial and smart and engaging in person as you are on The Internet.

Also: hilarious when discussing soaps. Which is a must, in my mind.

Oh, how I wish your hubbie still traveled to STL!

Delightful, joyful, upbeat, crazy smart and perceptive, disgustingly talented. And you have fabulous taste in fictional men, I'm just sayin'.

Your name popping on my friends list always puts a little happy in my day. :-)

I love your posts, and your icons. I like seeing what you bought at the grocery store and comparing it to what I bought. I love your humor, and your sense of fun, and I enjoy reading about shows even though I don't watch them. You brighten my day.

You're straight-up awesome, and I admire your vivacity, straightforwardness, and photographic talent :)

I really love reading your posts -- about food, about photography, about work, about whatever. I miss you when you don't post, actually -- I feel like I've known you so long that it's just reassuring to see you. I don't care that we don't have fannish interests in common, or whatever. I just like to see you.

How I wish that #*&@! pre-Thanksgiving traffic had not thwarted our dinner plans, my soap-lovin' friend! You're one of the people on my friends list that I haven't met, but whose voice is very clear in my head. Which means that either your "voice" is very distinct, or that I need meds. Possibly both.

Anyway, I've so enjoyed watching you blossom as a photographer, and cheering you on as you disentangled yourself from the WB and regained your confidence. I really hope we get to meet someday soon!

YOUR LAUGH. :-)

You are a very strong person, and it's really gratifying to see you achieve your goals and be happy all at the same time. You're a huge talent -- not just in spankyfic, but in real life; you have the ability to pick up almost any skill set quickly and become an authority in very short order, and then make your knowledge available to anybody who needs it. I don't know if you've figured out yet how rare and wonderful that is, but I hope so.

You also crack me up on a pretty much constant basis.

You are like the big sister I never had and really want sometimes. I look forward to reading what you have to say and your photography is a constant inspiration.

Oh dude, how have we not always been friends?

You are one of the realest people I know and your head is so level we could all balance our whackiness on it and you'd still be able to ringmaster us all. And you just get shit done, which I totally admire.

You are the definition of being normal and totally special at the same time!

Because you have the Cutting Edge love - and because you are stubbornly true to those fandoms you care about.

You are funny, funny, funny. And love clothes and shoes, and mostly you are my photography sistah, though you've surpassed me quite handily in the skill department there. You're like a ray of sunshine!
