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 are one of my oldest fic buddies and there's a reason for that. You are caring, you are loyal, you are always interesting and funny. I wish we could have another weekend of Japanese food, wedding dress shopping (this time it's YOUR turn!), and martinis and we could giggle about stupid, drunken stuff.

It is always a treat to meet you in person :) I so admire your level-headedness and the caring and attention you have for your family and friends and work.

You were the first non-Bostonion X-Filer I met, and I don't think we scarred you too much, right? Of course, I can't speak for the rest of the restaurant, but ... oh well. It's been a long road for you in many ways over the years, but you've set goals for yourself and you've achieved them, which is really to your credit. Keep moving upward!

Dear lord, how long have we known each other?

Long enough to have gone to a Cubs game with Brandon and seen a bra with padlocks on it and still not known Lena's real name and still only barely got into the 2000s.

You are such a lovely, moral person and you're so supportive of your family and your friends, and you make me want to hug you with your cuteness.

You also have a wicked side and I adore that too.

I like you so much you stayed at my house before we'd ever met IRL. I think that says something about how awesome you are!

It is always so fun when you visit, you have one of those buoyant personalities that just adds sunshine in a non-pollyannaish way, becuase it is tempered by your good sense and snark.

It is a pleasure to know you.

You're one of my oldest fandom friends -- I met you and PBB back in 1999?!? -- and I remember our bigass chats on AIM; oh my were those fun times. You know grammar better than I do, and let me stay at your place for a whole week! And now it's not really about fandom, is it?

It's awesome that you always remember birthdays with confetti and exclamation points. Yours is one of the journals that, even in case of extreme emergency, I'd keep on my f-list because you're an interesting, fun, and down-to-earth person.

You are SO AWESOME. You are just. Kind and generous and smart and funny and across the board an awesome human being. I haven't read a lick of your writing since the XF days, but even back then I was always in awe of your porn and UST and Muldering and Scullying, even if I was too shy to tell you.

I think that what I like about you is your generosity of spirit. You're open-hearted and have a good sense of humour

You are such an enormously kind-hearted being.
