And I know a lot of awesome people because I know you!
Awesome people are awesome. I had a similar feeling at my housewarming party last weekend, where we had approximately 40 of my favorite people in the world, including kids and other assorted hangers-on. And even if I didn't get to spend as much individual time with each person, watching them interact in all sorts of neat ways was way fun. Oh, I'm so glad to be back around my people.
OMG THANK YOU! I feel a lot better now! Honest!
You, too, are made of WIN and SUCCEED. Horray!

So that explains the tingly sensation I had at approximately 9:58 last night! Thank God; I thought it was a hernia.
But on the serious, HOORAY FOR DR. TECTONIC! His heart is as big 'n' burly as a folkloric lumberjack's!
What a great way to start my day! Thank you very much and may your sweetness come back to ya in spades today!
With all these comments? It totally has. :)
I guess I know somebody awesome on my friends list too ;-)
There is a tradition of this practice in Buddhism, where it is known as metta or loving-kindness meditation.
Metta is awesome! It's meta-awesome!
I'm reminded of a discussion of prayer-efficacy studies I was in ages ago, where the subject of people who pray for the well-being of people who have nobody praying specifically for them came up.
That sounds like it would be remarkably difficult to test the efficacy of. Can you even estimate the level of background prayer radiation?
I'm gonna start praying for the set of people who are not the targets of any prayer, including this one.
yeah, it's a tricky problem. Past a certain point ya gotta wonder about the underlying model.
/despair levels drop slightly
/thinks even more awesome in your direction!
maybe you are the awesome and the rawk and your juju over floweth due to both of them thar thangs! Made me grin this am, and as I get ready to head into a four hour meeting, I needed that!
I shall endeavour to do so. :)
Well, isn't that awesome of you!
I was wondering why, in spite of my angst last night, I was able to fall asleep so easily. Now I know why, and I think I'm a little in love with you as a result. I hope your boys don't mind sharing.
Thank you, Beemer. And I shall try it myself, tonight, for I have recently been hard-pressed to find any awesomeness in certain parts of my friends list.
It builds momentum as you go. The more awesome you've already found, the easier it is to find more.
BEST POST EVAH! EPIC WIN.
