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

I haven't seen minnow1212 nominate herself.

So I nominate her.

She is an amazing writer, so totally clever and reads all these wonderful books and has excellent thoughts about them. And she's so fun and enthusiastic in person and always thinks of just the RIGHT thing to sum everything up.

I can't think of anyone better to watch Bollywood movies with!

Re: Minnow1212
You're one of the nicest people in the world, and smart as anything! I wish I got to see you more often, Miss Minnow.

Re: Minnow1212
See now, I didn't even know about the Bollywood thing, which just makes you more fabulous. Your work was one of the first that I ever printed out to keep permanently, one of the first to make me see that this fanfic thing was maybe really kind of worthwhile. You are clever and kind, with a real hunger for knowledge that you generously share. I'd love to sit down with you and just pick your brain one of these days.

Re: Minnow1212
Minnow is gracious, considerate, and insightful, in her writing and in her life. I'm so glad to know her!

Re: Minnow1212
Okay, I just trimmed this down because I was up to five paragraphs (FIVE) and that's just ridonkulous.

Except, see, that's Minnow. One paragraph for her writing talent. One for her unflagging support of her friends. Another for that stealth wicked humor that makes me snort aloud (DEAR GOD, she makes me laugh so damn hard). One paragraph for her subconscious, as her deliciously lucid and crazed dreams deserve their own damn point. And another one for what a perfectly wonderful human being she is; generous of spirit, kind, and thoughtful. I would send Minnow out into space as an example of the best of our species for aliens to meet. (I would, of course, include a fully-stocked library, ice cream, and a holodeck pre-programmed with a Wesley massage program, a Mal banter subroutine, and a Teyla climbing/combat simulator.)

Re: Minnow1212
Minnow is one of the smartest, kindest, and funniest people I am honored to know, and my life is a thousand times better because she is my friend. She is thoughtful and perceptive and just plain good people.

Re: Minnow1212
Minnow has the best brain in the universe.

Re: Minnow1212
I think you might be one of the most insightful and delicate writers I've read on t'internet. You're also a very thoughtful person with the kind of sly wit that I imagine Jane Austen possessed (though I think you're far more generous that Ms Austen could be)

Everytime your icon pops up on my screen, I smile, because whatever you have to say will be worth reading.
