I posted this yesterday, but things went kind of blooey on me, so I'm not sure if everyone saw it and no one felt moved to respond (quite understandable!), or no one saw it because it showed up among posts that had been made hours earlier. (That's how it showed up when I went to my Friends Page; I'd posted it at 9:30 pm, and it appeared before posts made at 6 pm.) If at first you don't fricassee, fry, fry a hen.
Back to the meme again:Pick a number, any number, and comment with it, and I'll tell you something I think is awesome about you. :) Comments are screened.
The original post is here
in case you've forgotten your number: you can see your own comments, but no one else's.
My post to the first few respondents is here
. I've since received more numbers! So here goes:4
: You are amazingly generous with gifts and fic and compliments. I love that we enjoy and laugh about so many of the same things. I really enjoy your stories and other . . . creative works. You have a wonderful sense of humor!
I have two 22s. I will respond to them by date. You can look back at your posts to see which you are, if you're in any doubt (or ask me, if you get desperate! You can PM me).22 (responded on the original, screened-comments-only post, 24 Nov)
: You tell a great story. Whether it's something at work or adventures at home, you really know how to relate an incident. I wish fewer of the stories were about things that were aggravating or painful to you, simply because you have surely had enough aggravation and pain to last the next few years! I'm glad you share. 22 (responded on a later, unscreened post, 27 Nov.)
: I don't hear from you very often as I used to do, but I'm glad you still make time to check in with me! You're loads of fun, and you have one particular icon that I especially like, even if it's a bit sick (it looks like an image from a cartoon or comic strip). We may have originally bonded over fandom, but it turns out we have other interesting things to share, and I'm very glad. I've learned some interesting things from you!27
: You are one of the best betas ever
—you are so fast, and so accurate, and so helpful that I can't quite find the right superlative (but you probably could). You write great fic yourself, and you're very generous with your time. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you when I was out your way earlier this year, but I'm hoping some other time it will work out. 57
: I have had a great time with you, especially when we were playing in the SGA universe and even commenting on Malozzi's blog! We had a better plan for saving Carson than he did, didn't we? I think we had a few other tidbits along the way! You were the first LJ person I met in real life that I'd only known on LJ before we met. I hope we'll get together again some day.
