A Meme to Combat the Mood

Not to disparage the heroes of 5 years ago, but instead, to focus on something positive today:

If there is one or more people on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist post this same sentence in your journal.

  • aelfsciene: A little blue (now pink!) ball of fire who always makes me laugh. Thanks for being you.

  • aimeric: We've never really interacted face to face, but you're an improviser, and a good person-- may the force be with you on your job hunt.

  • animated_max: You, sir, make me feel sane beacause you're SO much farther out in left field than I am.  And I think that's awesome.

  • archanglrobriel: Artist, poet, and whatever the qualifies as a universal saint.  Bless your beautiful soul for all it's artistic endeavours.

  • astalavista: You are so much more awesome than you give yourself credit for.  If you only knew how much you make me smile, you'd be amazed.

  • atalanta: Beautiful, brilliant, and you make Sean so very happy.  Thank you for being you.

  • atomsplitter: I wish you still hung out here, because I miss hearing about your life regularly.

  • bbbsg: If only we'd met before I left Bawston.  I would have loved to have gotten to hang out more.  You and your man always make me smile, though.

  • bhoneydew: It took me forever to connect the on-line you with the real life you, and once I did, it made SOOOO much more sense.  Thank you for being a friend-of-a-friend, and an awesome one to boot.

  • blh120: Muh. So much to say, so many ways to say it.  I'm glad you're still part of my life, though. 

  • bripadme: Meliss was right, of course.  You're the awesome, and I'm glad I got to know you.

  • burkean: The smartness never ends, nor do the brilliant insights. You continually awe me with your observations and intelligent commentary.

  • bushidokelt: A good soul sacraficing itself to do good work in an iffy arena.  That's the true definition of hero.

  • c_m_i: The most distant cousin I know, and we were even friends first.  You know grampy Charlie brought us together for a reason.

  • cayetana: Beautiful and smart.  You need to post more, dammit.
