In honor of Valentine's Day...

Okay, so, I'm totally out of the loop, obviously... I haven't been paying much attention to the green room lately, so I completely missed the thread about "secret crushed," until one of my "anonymous" crushed just "confessed," which I found simultaneously flattering and amusing.

I posted a comment to that thread, but it was several days after most had forgotten about it, and I really did want to share with folks I like and respect the things that make them so special to me. 

When I was younger, my family (I have 5 brothers and sister) would periodically gather for what we referred to as "Warm Fuzzies."  Warm Fuzzies are an exercise where you take a sheet of paper, write your name at the top, and pass it to the person next to you (in some sort of ordered fashion like a circle), who hands you a page with someone else's name on it.  You write something that you like about the person whose name is at the top of the page, and then pass it on again, taking the next page, and adding another compliment or "warm fuzzy" to the list.  By the time the page comes back around to you, it is filled with "warm fuzzies" from each of the people in the room, all about how special you are.

I haven't been spending much time in the green room lately because I've been focusing on a job search, but I've just landed a great job tonight, for about $10K/yr more than I was hoping for, with a fantastic company who really really really really likes me, and is very excited to have me on board.  I felt so warm and fuzzy that I took our family out for sushi and hibachi grill to celebrate, and even got some help with the tab, which was sweet.

I want you all to know that I have been missing interacting with you on a regular basis, and I want to tell you why you're so special to me.

Some of these originated from the "secret crush" concept, so they may be a bit torrid or fliratious in nature, but that doesn't make the sentiment any less significant.  And some of them were added later as I realized I have more room in a post than in a comment, and there are just so many of you I'd like to wrap in a great big bear hug!

I will probably continue to add to these as more thoughts come to me, and as I get to know some of you better.  In some cases, where there hasn't been a mention, it's probably just because we haven't interacted much yet.

But rest assured that on some level, I love you all.

KarmaSoup's LJ Idol Hotlist

agirlnamedluna  hell, our last PRESIDENT barely understood our language, and this lady expresses it with such elegance and grace our own culture has left to a forgotten time that it flushes the cheeks in a twinge of shame.

alexpgp  this man, seriously, has done it all, and he tells the tales SO well!

baxaphobia  for an infectious touch of whimsy that permeates the dreariest moods.

beautyofgrey  for being superhuman and still fitting us in around a world that screams the pressing priority of a beautiful family in such a way that makes us all wistful for better times... if you lean in closely, you can almost smell the cookies.


clauderainsrm  for staying sane, despite us, for putting up with our pettiness, for loving us anyway, and for nearly unfathomable preseverance.

comedychick  for always keeping the lighter side of life at heart, in mind, and in spirit, and for being willing to share.

crimsonplum  because her head is just cluttered enough to feel like home.

drippedonpaper  they just really don't make like this any more... I thought I was the last of a dying breed of genuinely good people, but this one of a kind class act lady is in a league of her own, and part of that long lost family.

drjeff  ...cuz he's just so frickgen DO-able!  But also because he's very good about not making a point to always rub in our faces how much smarter he is than most of the rest of us, and for keeping his wits and a sense of humor about him in any circumstance.

douchejuice  for not being afraid to be a real man.

gratefuladdict  because, OMG, YUM! Clever, creative, and carnal... who could ask for anything more?

hug_machine  Say it with me now... TOTAL BUNDLE OF CUTE!!!

impoetry  for pushing past boundaries, and walking on the outskirts of normal, where most people I connect best with dream of living.

jack_batelin  for sheer genius macked out style, and pure bulldog tenacity.

jenandbronze – for her gift at drawing out the extraordinary in otherwise quotidian moments, and her willingness to share that special vision of her world with us.

joeymichaels  goes without saying, of course. For his edgy wit, and twisted sense of humor, and ability to continuously demonstrate originality where others have become stagnant, Joey is always a breath of fresh air.

kittenboo– for giving us a peephole into special moments of naughtiness.


libra_dragon  cause we like hugs.

lordrexfear  for love of life and adventure, knowing a good thing when he sees it, and being willing to chase after the siren that is desire.

kenakeri  for not being afraid to be delicate, and beautiful, all at once.

kiwiria  cause she's just so damned sweet!

m_malcontent  for the perfect match of virility and vulnerability.

mstrobel  for knowing how to reach into you and wrench what makes you who you are with a delicate precision.

negativeneve  for just being so DAMNED COOL!!!

oberonia  oh, come on... isn't this one obvious? For capturing the sensuous, sultry, southern sizzle that just OOZES dripping sex appeal.

oldscratchx  for his gritty, hardened ruggedness.

onda_bianca  total fantasy package wrapped up into a firecracker of crackling erotic energy, with a double dose of savvy smarts and seductive mischief, just waiting to go off!

oneonthefence  for always being a source of encouragement to others, even when love and support is what she deserves the most from the rest of us.


poppetawoppet  for saying so much with so little spoken.

rattsu  for consistently adding to the list of memorable moments that cannot be ignored, and really knowing how to make her voice "stand out" and be noticed.

rejeneration  for shining a spotlight and exposing us all to the darker side of our own soul.

shadowwolf13  for making us believe in fairy tales. 


stormkitty  for tireless devotion to us all.

supremegoddess1  Seriously? This one needs to be explained? Talk about the epitome of girl POWER... she can TOTALLY get me going - I'd probably even let her lead!

talon  for genuinely capturing the salacious intellectual without restraint or regret

tigrkitten  for dutifually keeping us interactive with each other socially like a loving mother hen.

viagra because it's FUN to scratch your head and wonder, Dude... wtf?   ;)

...And more to come as we all grow the love together!


Feel free to add your own thoughts on these or others awesome Idolers here.  Comment to share your own warm fuzzies about any folks out here you love... add extra special-ness to those already mentioned, or include a few that have yet to make the list, but might soon!

It was in tigrkittn's journal, and can be found here. Gary linked to it in some green room, but you can find it here.

Also, btw, check out my latest addition. ;)

I can't really take credit for the idea... I just expanded Tigrkttn's crush idea, with a little bit of spice from family memories... am just now getting back on top of the backlog of replying to comments... btw, have you checked out the latest addition? ;)

Congrats on the job, and thank you!


(by the way, this is probably one of the first times I actually saw a post on my FL because my background is black, so thus far I actually only saw space and then some words at the end usually and was wondering what it was all about :P)

Feb. 17th, 2010 01:17 am (UTC)
So... normally you look at your friends list, and anyone who has black font doesn't show up against your black background? Well, I'm glad you figured out what it was about, and, you're welcome, and thanks for the congrats... I'm two days in to the new job, and it's a lot of work, but, it's nice to be employed. Just now starting to play catchup with LJ... thanks for hanging in there! ;)

I've been meaning to say thank you for the kind words, but putting it off because I thought I might write something for people as well. As it turns out I just keep having other things to do. Maybe I will do something to this effect of my own later on when I have more time.
karmasoup
Feb. 19th, 2010 06:47 am (UTC)
I had originally intended for this to be a thread where everyone could say cool things about everyone, but, mostly, people are just thanking me... only one person said anything about anyone else, and it was about me, though, a few people did mention they agreed with one or two of my assessment. I suppose I would have had to have done it differently... made each one a separate comment, so that people could add to it. I may endeavor to do something like that at another point, but, I can understand how it could be hard to come up with the time!
