kaberett: a patch of sunlight on the carpet, shaped like a slightly wonky heart (light hearted)

Let's start 2017 off in a positive way with a Pay It Forward meme. The first 6 people to comment (and more if I can manage it) will receive a surprise from me at some point in 2017 - anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise! It will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy.

(If you don't like surprises and would rather have something off a wishlist and/or some warning, let me know in your comment. The goal is to make you happy.)

If you can, post this in your own journal and pay it forward. Let's do more kind and loving things for each other in 2017, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other.

(If you want something physical, you will need to be willing to give me a mailing address -- or able to meet up in person.)

Nope, but you know what, that's okay. Surprise me if you like, don't if you would rather not.

'Scuse me, I'm gonna go have a small panic (not, I must add, your fault) because of course I'm doing this thing too and I haven't done this thing.

I'll be a person who signs up after the six!

i will add that while i like nice surprises like surprise mail, i do not really want material things unless it's books (which i sometimes mail on to someone else to read like a book chain) or something off my wish list (which also says some things specifically not to send me haha)

Ooh, I love doing this kind of thing. *steals* (Less being the recipient, because it's cool but then I worry about being an imposition and stealing someone else's spot as someone else said above, and also I am relatively bad with surprises but also with keeping an up to date wishlist... It's the kind of thing I love as an idea, and would feel loved about if I were a recipient, but worry I am too difficult about. Did that make sense? Ugh, rambly 11.30pm brain.)

I realize I'm past six but I'd like to sign up, too. My preference is wishlist: Amazon master wishlist. I think the cheapest stuff I've got in there comes under the coloring books, journals, and cosmetics. (I love good-quality cosmetics like Sephora, but I've had lots of dollar store makeup in the past that lasted a good ten years and looked great, so price is definitely not everything.)

2016 was, bluntly, hell (come to think, I don't think even Hell would want to claim 2016). With everything going on, and I definitely did not have the spoons to talk about all of the bad on LJ/DW, I lost track of DW almost entirely.

I intend to copy-paste this into my own journal, but since I don't know if you will comment, I'd like to specifically request what you might like as a surprise in 2017. I don't think I've ever said it outright, but you've helped me a lot in various ways over the years we've known each other, and I couldn't point to any one thing, just that you are someone I consider important to me and I wish I'd been in a headspace in 2016 where I could've better kept up, because I definitely neglected our friendship (honestly, I neglected most of mine; I'm amazed more people haven't just written me off entirely).

Anyway. Much love, and this is an awesome idea. :)
