The strength meme

If the shower meme was named because its originator thought of it in the shower, this one should be named the bed meme because I thought of it in bed. It gets its name, however, from the Upward Bound project I participated in my sophomore and junior years in high school. One of those years, one of the instructors had us do what she called "strength bombardments." Over the course of the project, each person in the class would have a turn and the others would take turns calling out good things about that person. At the end, each person had a big flip-chart page with all these things that others that were good about you.

Your task, if you should choose to accept it, is to go through your friends list (in alphabetical order) and write at least three short, declarative sentences describing good qualities about the person. You don't have to do them all at once, but don't skip anyone. (You don't have to do communities or rss feeds unless you are inspired.)
