Buffy Casablanca Poster poppy wreath  RS

TO MY ANONYMOUS BENEFACTOR: THANK YOU

Yesterday I received a v-gift of a red rose from an anonymous donor and thought:

"Who is this from?"
That's sweet."
"Is someone trying to woo me? Because I'm spoken for - but extremely flattered."
"No one has given me a rose in ages. Even if it's a virtual one."
"Is this going to be accompanied by a dead body?"



Just now I've noticed that someone has given me a paid account - with spaces for 32 icons (oh my!) I have PLANS for those empty slots. And who knows what other goodies?
(I've got daily visitor stats! Whoo!) ETA: velvetwhip says I can do polls. I have wanted to do polls since I got this account. I HAVE IDEAS.

WHOEVER GAVE ME THIS GIFT: THANK YOU. You paid you own hard-earned money to give ME a free account?
I'm grateful and flabbergasted and as close to speechless as I get.

And I'm not going to ask how it's even possible for someone else to upgrade my account. Wouldn't someone need my password? Nope, shutting off the suspicious & paranoid lobe of my brain. Shutting it off RIGHT NOW. Really.

I have NO IDEA who it might be. NONE whatsoever. Which is a good thing, in a way: I have NO idea who did this because I've made an astonishing number of friends in this fandom since I started this journal 1-1/2 years ago, who have provided me with encouragement, conversation, friendship and solid support, wise and sensible counsel when I needed it, spaces to rant and squee, to laugh and weep and think.

Any single one of them - one of you, dears - might be my benefactor.  I'm astonished anyone thinks I'm worth it and pleased if you feel I am. I hope I can give back at least a fraction of what I've received since joining this fandom.

Now excuse me, I have something wet in my eyes.
That is so beautiful! This fandom is full of the most wonderful people. I'd like to hug whoever did this for you as well.

Oh, and yes you can do polls.

Indeed it is (and I'm going to pretend you're not on my list of suspects, young lady.)

When I wrote "...friendship, solid support, wise and sensible counsel..." you were certainly one of the people I was thinking of first and foremost.

And I can do polls? OH MY. Look out fandom I have been DYING to do that!
- (Anonymous)
I have thing about polls - I used to them on Facebook for my local co-op as a volunteer, and make up witty/silly questions & answers. I don't know why I enjoy that, I guess it's one of my "silly" outlets.
A rose and icon space too? Somebody out there really likes you!

Also, paid account holders can edit their comments! *ahhhhhh, macarena!*

You're a lucky, lucky goil. Mazel tov!
As in, edit my comments even AFTER someone has already replied? :D

I and yes, I been VERY blessed this week with all the lovely fandom prezzies! (I've been blessed to find Buffy and this fandom anyway.)
And I'm not going to ask how it's even possible for someone else to upgrade my account. Wouldn't someone need my password?
Nope, it's just a gift. If you go here you can see 'Gift a Paid Account' is the second choice. (On your left, at the top.)

(And this was how I really started, way back when. Someone gifted me a paid account. And then I couldn't go back...)
Oh nifty, thank you! That does relieve my mind to know that. (the thing is it never occurred to me until I was writing this post...I can be really slow on the uptake.)

And bless your benefactor, because I'm very glad you're still here!
Aww. That's lovely to hear.

I am not the one who gave you the paid account, but I have done that for another friend in the past. You can rest assured: I did not need her password in order to do it. LJ is happy to accept payment from anybody. :-)

Oh, sweetie. ***BLUSHES***

And a year and a half ago I was terrified that I wasn't "smart enough" to be here.
January 9th was "more joy day" and someone certainly gave you joy, good for you, you deserve it!

Yes, you can do polls with a paid account. When I first got my paid account I loved doing polls.

I have wanted to do polls since I got this account. Of course you have, you are into meta and meta and polls go hand in hand.

Of course I also love to do silly/witty polls (I used to do that on Facebook for fun); and I am actually curious as to who my readers are; and also what people want to see me post more of less of here. (That might be interesting. Doesn't mean I'll listen....*lol*)

I don't think I could pick up gabrielleabelle's episode polls that mcjulie continued for a while but who knows? (I think she might have left off at OAFA. Which means...maybe skipping to S7 because do I want to put myself through AYW and SR? Really not.)
I am so happy for you.

I had an anonymous teddy on my profile page, and that alone made me weepy ... so I can imagine how you felt.

Hope you enjoy (warning though ... you never get enough icon space!!)
A teddy? Someone was paying attention! How wonderful.

Oh I'm worried that I'll get addicted and decide to keep paying and - I've been eyeing a couple of your icons very very hard, as you know!
This is so wonderful! I'm so happy for you, Sweetie! (Icon space!)

There are so many kind and wonderful people in this fandom. I'm both jealous and awfully happy that this happened to you.

*hugs you tight*
**HUGS BACK**

I wouldn't want you to be jealous on my account sweetie! If it's any help - I'm now worried about actually filling up those icon spaces because I may not decide to continue a paid account but I'll be addicted later on so - dilemma. Umm...Does that help?

"Is this going to be accompanied by a dead body?"

Ahahahaha! Oh Angel, you've ruined roses forever.

Yay!
Oh Angel, you've ruined roses forever.

Good thing my sweetie and I are more the "colored mixed bouquet and wildflowers" types. ;)
"Is this going to be accompanied by a dead body?"

Nothing says 'I like you' more then a rose and a dead body :P
Nothing says 'I like you' more then a rose and a dead body :P

*LMAO* Good thing nobody told my sweetie that back in the day. (Now I have this mental picture of psycho buffyverse fans...oh never mind.)

FYI - I was just checking out your "recent" posts, and some good stuff there! Welcome to my LJ. Friending ok?
