Gracious...let's see here. I think it's about time I posted in this! Sorry ahead of time if I forget anyone, it isn't intentional and I will
get to you eventually! And now, cue the sappiness
Chester: You are one of the sweetest people I've met on these forums, even though we haven't really talked much on a one-on-one basis. You always seem to be friendly and kind to everyone around you, which is a really admirable trait.
Cheese: Fellow penguin enthusiast -- the first person I ever met who loved penguins as much (probably more, really) as I do. We don't talk much anymore, but you were one of the first people I ever spoke to from here. Whenever we do get the chance to speak, you never fail to make me laugh and have listened to me whine when I was stressed out many times.
Debs: You've provided me with a lot of laughs, and have also been there for several serious chats when I really needed it. I don't know if you even remember the serious chats that I'm talking about now, but it meant the world to me that you just listened, because I needed that very much at the time. Plus, I also love your skills at greasing a cookie sheet.
Elf: Liz...you are the best e-sister that anyone could ever ask for. *hugs* And adorable as well! I don't think I've ever told you that, but you are
I love talking to you, and wish that we could do so more often.
Feyliya: I know you're away at the moment, but hopefully you'll come back someday and read this. You are one of the friendliest people I've known. I PMed you asking a question, and from that point on it was just so easy to talk to you. I hope you're able to return to us soon.
Gerb: You never fail to make me smile on Missy's forums. You and I share a lot of the same frustrations, and right when I'm thinking about posting something, I find more often than not that you have already posted something similar. I'm never afraid to show my true feelings around you, and you never make me feel bad for anything I say...even when we disagree (which isn't often, but it does happen).
InKy: Ahh, Dragonslayer.
I often find myself in tears when talking to you, but that's a good thing. They are the result of laughing myself silly.
I'm extremely glad that I decided to get IRC, because if I hadn't, I would have missed out on a lot of laughter and smiles that were caused by you.
Irish: The e-son I thought I didn't want.
But I did, as it turns out. I'm glad you tried to blackmail me. Wow, now that is a weird sentence, lol. But you can always put a smile on my face, no matter how bad a mood I'm in.
Jaq: Me caveman e-wife! *grunt grunt* The most amusing conversations seem to happen when you're around. Case in point: Radioactive seedless watermelons. Enough said.
You're amazingly witty and always seem to find something fun to talk about.
Leo: You're a really wonderful person. That seems so trite to say, but it's really true. It always seems like you're spending your time consoling other people and helping them through their problems even as you have problems of your own. It takes a really selfless person to do that.
Lo: I'm also really glad we were re-united. I'm also glad that you haven't changed a bit.
You're definitely one of the most generous people I've ever met. You probably don't remember it (or maybe you do, since I mentioned it on here not long ago..lol), but years ago you offered to buy me some lip gloss when I was complaining that I was out of the kind I used and couldn't get it because there was too much snow to get to the next town that it's sold in. I know it's something little, but it's the little things that add up. You do so many things, big and little, for so many people. I, for one, will always appreciate and admire that.
Missy: Another person I don't get to talk to much anymore. You have more of a spine than I could ever hope to have. You say all of the things that I'm thinking but am afraid to say. I really do admire you for that, and I miss our talks a lot. Isn't it summer again yet? =/
Oxy: Becca...you don't post much on here, but I'd guess that you know me better than anyone else on the forums. Probably because you've known me for about 5 years, lol. You've listened to more of my complaining than anyone else I still talk to online. That has always meant a lot to me.
Queenie: My former noob who decided to stick around! You are sweet beyond words. I was tickled pink when you asked me if I would be going to the UK Mata Meet.
You're so friendly that I always find myself smiling when reading your PMs. I'm really glad that I decided to adopt you.
Syuu: When I joined these forums, you were one of the first people I noticed. Not only because I thought at first you were Mata's gf (lmao, I'm still not sure WHY I thought that), but you just stood out from everyone else right away. I never pictured us being friends, because you just seemed so enormously popular that I doubted you'd ever even speak to me. But now I am infinitely glad that we talk. You are popular for a reason, and that reason is simply because you are a lovely person.
Tarantio: Haven't seen you around in a long time. I just had to add this though... You have the best voice ever! Syuu was right when she said the Scottish accent was very healing (can't remember exactly when that was, but I'm pretty sure it was definitely her). You're also amazingly funny and have cheered me up many times in the past.
TL: You definitely do amuse me! I love your "erotic" stories about a bunch of weird objects...lol. I was giggling insanely the first time you typed one to me.
Weej: You're amazingly sweet and always mindful of peoples' feelings. I'm really glad that you decided to join us in IRC, cause I really love talking to you.
Even if it's about something silly like comparing what people eat for breakfast where I live vs. where you live, I always have a good time.
And that, my friends, is why Candice will never write a goodbye post if she decides to leave! Too many people to say things to! Again, sorry if I forgot anyone that I talk to on a semi-regular basis (I'll get ya later, I promise)...but I've spent 90 minutes on this and now my brain is rather fried.
