It's been a very strange day chez Nif, what with my brother beating me at Stratego and me wanting to rip off his face for that, but we shall pass over that little tid-bit and go directly to the heart of the matter (if I can be forgiven the Don Henley reference), which is that today I'm take a minute and let a couple of special ladies know how special they are to me. (I've seriously become a Vegas lounge singer all of a sudden. WTF, mate?) The idea is, I'm picking some people on my flist who might not know how much I really do appreciate them, and letting them know -- and so here we go:latxcvi
: Okay, I know it's been said again and again and again, but you have got to be one of the most class acts there is. You're brain is just -- this giant pulsating all knowing orb of intelligence, and the way you break down episodes of Smallville and expose their marrow (for good, or more often, for what the fucking fuck!!? this season) is just absolutely mind blowing to me. You've like, mind-melded with The Smart (you know, the smart that's just kind of -- free floating in our universe) and your LJ is a really thought provoking and intelligent and *fun* place. You're sassy and a hell of a writer of fics, in addition to being one goddamned Deep Meta-Thinker. (Your dS in particular makes me kind of weak at the knees in a GUHFLAIL!!) kind of way. You might not know it, dahlin', but every post you make gives me something to think about, and that in and of itself makes me smile. scrunchy
: So, one word for you -- Taladdin! I'd love you for that alone, probably, because -- really. You were just right there, and all about the Aladdin/Rajah slash and while that's utterly disturbing, it's just one of those things that's going to be the product of a mind as delightfully quirky as yours. You, my dear, are MOLTO MOLTO MOLTO talented -- I think you may, actually, have a door that leads into Dan Rydell's mind and after a half hour spits you out on the side of the Jersey turnpike, becuase your Dan-voice is uncanny. And your Casey. And all of your Sport's Night voices, as a matter of fact. You write them the way those characters *beg* to be written, and you do it poignantly, funnily, just fucking amazingly. And, on top of that? You're, like, crafty. In the literal way, in that you make crafts, though I guess you're pretty wily-crafty, too, come to think of it. Every post you make has these little gems of funny in them, if for only your turn of phrase. You may, in fact, be one of the funniest people on the planet, actually.
I'll probably do more people later, because I actually really like to do this, and don't know why I don't do it more often. It makes me feel all gooey and warm, like a chocolate chip cookie.
