So, I thought "Everyone's definitely already heard about the allthingsimlish love fest by now," but then why are some of you not signed up for it? I have been looking for you on it, trying to say nice things about you! So, you're awesome enough that you probably didn't feel the need to put your name up because you already know that you're awesome and don't need someone to tell you. But you're still depriving me of a forum to say nice things about you! And other people who want to say nice things about you, too.

I feel really warm and fuzzy about the responses I've got, I mean, that I got any at all. I know I'm kind of the queen of slow posting, and that makes me pretty quiet and easy to miss. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to anyone who said anything to me.

Also, I've been having fun guessing at who said what, just by the speech patterns and word usage in the comments. Some of them sound like the comment leaver is definitely from a specific area. I wonder if my comments sound Californian. Maybe I should just start telling everyone they're "hella rad, bro".

If you've left one for me, then I just might have to go back to them in the morning and see if any of them sound Californian ;) I haven't left my fuzzies for anyone yet, but I'm not in any big hurry. It's not even Thanksgiving, for one thing, and it wouldn't be any fun if we got ours all at once, now, would it? But of course I won't forget about you when I get to that; I already know what I'm going to say, but I just need to put it into words.

Ah, I totally didn't know spreading them out was the name of the game. Thanks for the tip.

And at least one of yours definitely has a Californian accent, whether you can tell it's there or not.

You make a compelling argument ;)

Ha! You were definitely one of the people I was scrolling through looking for. "Why isn't she here!? I want to express nice things!" I haven't left you one yet, but that's just because I'm trying to condense all the awesome things I want to say into a non-rambly coherent thing.

You really are too lovely :)

You know, when the Holiday meme was created for the first time lat year, I went there and left messages to everyone I knew, but personally didn't sign up because it made me feel terribly awkward and apprehensive, and I know for a fact I wasn't the only feeling like that. I imagine many may be feeling the same this time around too.

I only signed up this year because some of the posts about it in my F-list got me in a good mood, but, TBH, I started feeling all awkward and apprehensive again right after doing it so ... and the only reason I didn't delete it, was because I got distracted for a few minutes here (helping my daughter with something) and by the time I went back (ready to delete myself from the list), I already had a marvelous message on it ... It did made me feel all warm and fuzzy, so soon I was feeling a lot better about it, and I'm happy I did sign up this time. :)

I thought that might be the reason some people weren't up there, it was for me, last year too. I thought maybe having the idea that "Hey, at least I'll get one comment!" might turn people on to the idea.

You were afraid of that though? Really? I don't mean to make light of your anxiety, but really? You're not only cool to talk to and a great story teller, but also you organize so many fun things that make the community better for everyone.

It's a nice meme, and it does make you feel all warm and fuzzy. :) Like ale, I didn't sign up last year 'cause it felt awkward, but this time I figured, what the hell.

When I have time I need to go through and leave comments of my own to all you lovely people.

It is kind of awkward and anxiety causing at first. I had to give myself a big pep talk where I told myself "Okay, if no one says anything, it'll be because you're quiet and rarely update. It won't be that they don't like you, it will just be that they don't know you."

So I thought I'd give my friends list a "You are awesome! I assure you, you will get at least one comment!" pep talk.
