The Compliment Meme
Gacked from chimosa who gives good compliment.

Comment here and I'll tell you one thing that I like about you. I'm incurably honest so it will be the unvarnished truth.


Then go post it in your LJ and see who comments.

There's so much I admire about you - it's hard to know where to begin! I think you're enormously talented - both as an artist and a writer. I love the glimpses I get of your relationship with Snake - you two have found a way to build and maintain a fulfilling and lasting marriage and done it without monogamy, too! I think you're insightful and fun and funny and know so much about so many things. You're such a grownup, but you're in touch with your inner adolescent, too - it shows when you write the X-kids.

I'm very happy to have you in my cyberlife!

I love how you write fanfic recs. Clear, concise summaries and a cogent explanation of what you like about the story. Even if I never read what you're rec'cing, I always enjoy the recs themselves.

Well, the easy one would be to say you have spectacular breasts, but that would beg the question of how I know, so I'll do a different one.

Do you know the Dan Savage thing "GGG"? It stands for "good, giving and game" and he means it in a sexual context. Taking it away from sex - that's how I think of you. You're willling to *try* so many things - memes, different kinds of fiction, new forms of dance. You're so out there - doing and learning and growing every day. No wonder you have 100 friends!

I love how you talk about your life. Whether on lj or elsewhere, you manage to bring humor and insight into self-reflection, even when you're reflecting on lousy developments. Whether you're telling cute stories about the kids, railing about something that bothers you, or detailing the ups and downs of job searches and interview clothing choices, I always know when it's a post about the Life of Joan, it will be engaging and worth reading.

Well, I found myself thinking, "Oh, Mo doesn't even know me that well, so how could she have any compliments for me. Plus no one will comment if I put it in my LJ, so why bother?" And so on. Yeah, it's that kind of week. So, I guess I could use some complimentary energy if you've got any to send my way.

You've really helped me look at gender in a different way. You are so articulate and so *strong* and so warmly matter-of-fact in your explanations that it just makes me sit up and take notice. I'm kind of an old style dyke and this gender queer stuff is hard for me to understand and kind of alien. But you're so clear and so friendly in your manner of talking about it that I'm actually managing to learn a little bit :-).

Sorry you're having a bad week. If you put it in your journal, I'll certainly ocmment, I'm sure others will, too.

Hey, do my resume one, too!

Wow, that is a great compliment! Thank you! *goes to post meme in own LJ*

I went to a great poetry reading last night by Naomi Shihab Nye, and that made my week a lot better. The wonders of poetry!

I'll try to do the resume meme later. :)

I'll do it too :D, but mostly because I want to post it in my journal and it doesn't seem fair if I don't participate :D. {Though you don't have to give me one--I know we don't know each other as well as we might, yet.}

~hugs~

We don't know each other much yet, it's true, but I often find I really relate to your posts, even though our circumstances are really different. You have a very vivid way of writing and it makes me feel connected and helps me see connections. So although I don't have the same financial constraints, for example, I have similar feelings about paying one paycheque plus on housing every month as you do on student loans. And you can describe a headache like nobody else.

It's nice to know that my frequently self-indulgent ramblings occasionally serve some purpose ;). LOL on the headache--sometimes laughter is all that helps.

Thanks for the lovely compliments..I meant to post this to my journal last night and got sidetracked. I must go do it post-haste so I can say neat and exciting things about you :D.
