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

Re: I nominate revely
And as I nominated the wonderful revely, I will begin. I just think you are marvellous. You're genuinely sweet without even a hint of saccharine and just such a lion-hearted but gentle soul that anyone who knows you is lucky to say so.

Rev, you wear jewelry to match your pajamas. (And so you should!) You used to steal your neighbor's horse. You gave a kid a BOOK for Halloween. That rocks! You are a gorgeous, kind, funny girl.

Re: I nominate revely
You're right, she would not nominate herself. She is generous, graceful, kind and immensely talented

Re: I nominate revely
I fully expect to hear some strangers discussing one of your books someday and long for that little 'ping' of a thrill I'll get as I stifle the urge to say, "She's my friend!" Maybe I won't even stifle it, but shamelessly namedrop. But you are so much more than the sum of your talent. Your heart is vast, encompassing all of us who are your sisters, born and chosen. I'm proud to be among them.

Re: I nominate revely
You are a such a talented writer that there have been times when I've read something of yours and banged my head against the desk, because I could never write it as beautifully as you. Not only that, you have a heart as big as the ocean. That's quite a combo.
