Here's a thought:  
Do you all remember that thing from -- I guess last year? Where Person A selected a Person B from their f-list who Person A felt didn't know how much they were appreciated by Person A and then made a post about it?

I really liked that.

You guys want to do it again? Maybe, this time, with more than one person? I'm thinking, this Sunday, let's just do it. It would require no sign up whatsoever. Just pick people, then say nice things about them, and if you'd like, link back in the comments to this post to what you've posted, so that people can browse and find nice things about themselves. (I absolutely SUCK at organization, so this is me doing my very best to feel that role out.)

So, please feel free to link to this post, because honestly? The more the merrier. It's always really nice to be able to put a smile on somebody else's face, just by telling them how much you like them.

ETA: It occurs to me that it is, in fact, Sunday right now. I was really confused, as I tend to get when half asleep -- let's call it Tuesday for the whole big exchange of mutual appreciate and suchwhat? Although, really? Nobody should feel bound to not do it before then; appreciate everybody and anybody wherenever you want, my ducklings. Okay. Now I'm going to sleep for real, because keeping my eyes open is begining to be very, very hard.

I think this sounds like a terrific idea, except I'm not sure if I follow you? You want, I pick a person that I love and post how much I love them?

Dude, sorry I wasn't clear -- as I said, me as an organizer is usually a sure-fire sign of disaster, but let me try again:

You look at the people on your flist, and you think, "Huh. I think Queen Almathea Of The Nine Deserts is really cool, but I bet she doesn't know how cool I think she is." So then you post something like..."Queen Almathea, I totally dig the way you write up every sandstorm that happens in your deserts with loving and meticulous detail, also, those cartoons you draw from the blood fo the innocents are way neat."

That probably doesn't make it any clearer (I'm half asleep, so *laughs* if I'm still sounding weird, then like, bitchslap me and demand another explanation, and I'll give you one in th emorning) but yeah, essentially, pick someone you've got friended who you feel doesn't know how much you appreciate them, and then take the time to let them know that you do appreciate them, and why.

Lord. *shakes head at self* I could make making a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich hard to explain. I'm sorry, I'm totally cracked.

No, it makes sense now! I think it's splendid.

It says what it means? Or else what - it gets the hose again? Isn't the whole point of this to say not just what it means, precious, but everything that pops into its headseses?

Re: banner change
It says what it means or else it gets the 'testicle' quote again, really -- which, I've heard, can be embarrasing for one and all. *grins*
