Why You Rock

You inspire me to continue on with my personal projects and goals.   (Whether you run, play hockey, participate in NaNoWriMo, script in python, or take endless macro shots of your pinky figurines.)

You have superior netiquette, and employ correct grammar.  (I'm awed by your ability to reply thoughtfully to almost every comment.)

You understand how I once almost lost a girlfriend to nethack.

Your life is so similar to/different from mine, and you write so compellingly about it.  (Kids, zen, politics, gadgets, pop culture.)

You accept my love for tachikomas and rss feeds without judging me.  (Unless you're judging me...)

Thus ends my first lj love-fest post.  I almost named names, but the fact is that every one of you inspire me to be a better person in one way or another.  Thanks for that.

That, and some of them are glaringly obvious ("or take endless macro shots of your pinky figurines" ::eyes Zannah::). XD

I AM curious about the hockey player though... It's such an under appreciated sport, especially in Seattle. I feel like a black sheep most of the time.

The hockey player is a local friend of mine that I've known for more than half my life. ... And we're old.

He's also the one who was there during the Nethack Incident. Although more than one reader knows the siren call of nethack.

With the glaring exception of pinky figurines, most of those items apply to more than one individual.

Great post. Says so much . . . so many shiny things rolled into one.

Thanks. The feelings are sincere, and yet it's quite hard for me to get them out. My "Men are from Mars" side resists.
