Snowflake Challenge: Day Eight

Day Seven is on hold because I need to think a bit about what it is I like (at the moment, I could just say DETECTIVES and call it a day, but that would be cheating a little). I'm not sure I understand Day Eight:

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.

I don't know what a "love meme" is, and the examples in the comments are just people reposting this challenge and declaring their intention to lovememe. Is it just going around and declaring love for the people on your friends list? I can do that, but it might take time.

No, you've done it right - you just post that in your LJ and wait for your flist to tell you how wonderful you are.

If, of course, the flister in question is British, she just shuffles her feet awkwardly, pats you and tells you that you seem pretty all right. And then gets terribly embarrassed about gushing. ;-p

But you do seem very nice! And I like your enthusiasm for the detectives. (I think DETECTIVES is totally an acceptable answer). ♥

Oh, well, that's more embarrassing than I expected! Thanks for letting me know.

Maybe I will just stick with DETECTIVES, though I do have more specific likes. I finished Artists in Crime and was delighted to see Inspector Alleyn being intermittently human: awkwardly avoiding and then even more awkwardly attempting to flirt with Troy, being awkward about Troy to the other detectives, having and expressing opinions about art -- Alleyn, I am so proud of you!

He does have a character, honest! It's just mostly about being terribly polite and cultured, and very good at his job, but he has no splendid moustaches or knitting or anything. Sadly. I'm sure he would knit very well, though I don't think he could carry off an epic moustache. I'm glad you liked him more in AiC anyway. Troy and Alleyn are quite good at being awkward with each other. ;-)

♥! I don't know you very well, but you seem like a really cool person. Love memes are kind of hard and embarrassing, but everyone deserves nice comments!

Thank you! How do you make those tiny hearts?

(Let's see if I can get this to work...)

without the spaces – that is, written just as though it was one word – should be the right html to code a little heart.

yes, you're doing it correctly! :D we're just met, but i've already really enjoyed having you on my flist and in my comments (your first silmarillion re-read post was such great fun!). i like your sense of humor and your way of looking at the world and thinking of different things, and i'm looking forwards to a long lj acquaintance ♥

Thanks, egelantier! [tiny heart]

I think you are splendid and have excellent taste in mystery novels and old books! And you've heard of Josephine Preston Peabody. I know I've mentioned this fact, but I will probably never stop marveling that I'm not alone anymore.

Now that I know how to make tiny hearts, here is one for Josephine Preston Peabody and one for you:

Our acquaintance is short but you seem like a lovely, level-headed, book-reading (this is an awesome thing in my book, NO PUN INTENDED) person! <3

(Love memes are usually like, someone submits their name or other people's names and other people leave comments saying nice things. They're sometimes good, sometimes not so good, as you can probably imagine :P)
