I've may not have said it before (or maybe I have), but it bears saying (repeating)  
If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

*squishes you all*

meme from aesiron

I've written 33 lines about 33 friends.  Go ahead. Guess. Some of these apply to more than one person. 
  1. You have such a gentle heart and a gentle soul and I'm glad there are others in the world who also see that in you too
  2. I admire your ability to come up with incredibly creative solutions to so many things - your fiction, your work, your life.
  3. Fierce and unfraid and generous, you teach me about the meaning of the word undaunted
  4. You are, and have been as long as I've known you, filled with a radiant dancing light. 
  5. You are so generous with yourself I am inspired 
  6. You are not only funny, and witty, earthy and wise in equal turns, you constantly make me smile
  7. You are a great heart that has amazing strength 
  8. I adore the way you are always so very much yourself
  9. I love the way you perceive the world and cut through to the heart of things
  10. You are, without a doubt, one of the unexpected but great joys of my life
  11. Your gentle, wise, nurturing soul is breathtaking
  12. You are irrepressibly forthright, and I adore that
  13. There is such a joy and gentle smile to so much of what you do that I delight in you
  14. I utterly respect not only your talent as a writer, but the way you lead your life and love
  15. You are one of the reasons why I am in grad school 
  16. I think of you, always, as gentle, adorable, and fiercely brilliant 
  17. The best of friends, we've gone down the years together, and I could not have ever conceived how much you've added to my life
  18. Your curiosity and your eye and your talent have always amazed me
  19. My heart is brighter and more idealistic because of my friendship with you
  20. Even though you're continents away I feel as if you are a kindred soul 
  21. I think of you as someone who is truly alive in all ways and delight in that
  22. You are, in a sense, a sister of my soul
  23. You remind me that the only way to be is yourself, respecting yourself, knowing yourself, loving yourself, and how that brings the love in return
  24. A little crazy, adorable, a little wicked and my darling
  25. You are wise and witty and interesting
  26. There is so much of you in me, from the tips of my toes to the ends of my fingers, and every drop of it makes me proud to be the person I am
  27. You sparkle with wit and mirth and sly textual grins
  28. I think of you as a giving, wise, adventurer 
  29. Astonishingly smart, I am in awe of your brain
  30. So deep in my heart I'm not even sure sometimes where you begin and I end, and yet so different from me that you challenge me every day in the best of ways, I cannot imagine anyone else I would rather make a life with
  31. You remind me that being a gentle, encouraging, enthusiastic spirit is it's own kind of strength 
  32. You pull no punches, ever, and that kind of honesty is painful at times, but worth it.  period.
If you guess today I'll tell you the answer, and I'll post the whole list tonight / tomorrow

I don't see myself in any of these.

What a fun, fun twist to an old meme. I love it! The only problem (although it's a problem in the fun sense of the word) is trying to find out who I am. And trying to find out who others are, too. *ponders ponders*

I picked one that I'm assigning to myself, even though, you are right, I can see myself in more than one of them...does that make me egotistical? ;) :D

my monkied brainkatekat1010 on July 17th, 2008 07:35 pm (UTC)
wait, which one did you pick? you have to tell me before i can release the info to you ;)

I have no earthly clue who any of these are. It just makes me absurdly happy and heart-glowy to read the list and know that so many of them could apply to any number of awesome people I've met in and through fandom. ♥
my monkied brain: x/c - *snuggle*katekat1010 on July 17th, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
it's true! i feel kind of bad closing down the possibilities (by saying who i was thinking of) because there are so many of them that really apply to so many people. We have an awesome bunch of people around here, and you are one of those awesome ones.

and if you wanted to know which one you were ... ;) i can tell you today or tomorrow

I am not going to try to guess because I am always wrong. But this was very very lovely. *g*

having had someone else do this meme with me (and with only 10 choices to pick), I know how hard it is to find yourself in all the words, and I'm glad you liked it even before i revealed (although perhaps you would not be wrong? you'll have to tell me). There are actually many that fit you, dear one, in many ways, but when i thought about you these two are the ones that specifically came to mind: 5 & 31

Whether I'm in this list or not (I've no idea, as I don't recognize myself in any of them), this was a lovely thing to do. *hugs you*
my monkied brain: buffywill - *glomp*katekat1010 on July 18th, 2008 12:40 am (UTC)
you may not recognize yourself in the words per se but you're in there (and really, in more than the two that i really ended up writing when i visualized you, but that's ok). And it was more than fun to do this, and to realize how amazingly awesome my friends list is. It's something I would not have dreamed of pre-lj life.

(and since i can't not tell you: 14 & 23)

I don't think I'm one of those 32 you've listed, but if I am, I'd peg myself as 32? Or possibly 12?
my monkied brain: Mish Rockskatekat1010 on July 18th, 2008 03:52 pm (UTC)
of course you're one of those!! more than one! but the one I wrote when I thought of you? 24

Oh bless! I'm so doing this once the Greek review is done.

And might i guess me as being #20? :)
my monkied brain: buffywill - *glomp*katekat1010 on July 18th, 2008 03:52 pm (UTC)
YOU ARE RIGHT! I think the overseas thing gave it away, didn't it? *squishes you to pieces*

(thinks) If I'm on here I don't see me.

(hugs) I haven't been commenting as much as I should be, but you're never far from my thoughts.
my monkied brain: x/c - *snuggle*katekat1010 on July 18th, 2008 04:04 pm (UTC)
you're on there, you're totally on there.

and MASSIVE HUGS. neither have I, but you are in my thoughts, seriously.
Lostgirllostgirlslair on July 18th, 2008 12:59 pm (UTC)
Well, I have no idea where I am, but, I have other people guesses!

I know that 30 is snash_attack, and I'm guessing that 31 is soft_princess, and . . . . hmmm . . . I thought I recognized D, but she fits in more than one space! Hmmm. I don't know!
