End of another long week, let's carve out a space to talk about something other than politics for those that need that space. Let's talk about random acts of kindness. I just read this news story about a woman who let a stranger ahead of her in line while shopping, the stranger repaid this act of kindness by purchasing some of her items as a thank you. What are some random acts of kindness that you have experienced yourself? Maybe someone bought you a cup of coffee. Or passed on a parking ticket that still had time left on it. It could be the dinner that was paid for without your knowledge. Whatever it is, in keeping with the holiday spirit, let's talk about those random acts of kindness that surprised you. Don't forget that this includes being kind to yourself. Cheers.
I want to thank taz for continuing to maintain the Best Of Metafilter posts and sidebars, and specifically call out the November music round-up. It's splendid, thank you!
Can I just say that the Blue has been amazing lately and I've been having a lot of fun with the diversity of posts. And by diversity, I can't even begin to describe, but if you've been watching the Blue you know what I mean. Thank you, all of you, for your posts! I'm sure I'm not the only member who has felt delighted by something unexpected... So yay!

On my 10 year anniversary here at MetaFilter, I would just like to thank all of the MeFites that have welcomed me to this community and given me so much to think about. I'd especially like to thank the mods (past and present) for keeping the place sane and levelheaded, the Quonczars for the annual Quonsmas season fun, and especially mathowie who built this special home. [more inside]
I'm getting married on Saturday. While it would have happened without help from Metafilter, the help I've gotten in my Ask questions has made my life a lot easier. This is a big thank you to everyone who helped in those questions. [more inside]
This year was incredibly hard for me in a lot of ways. [more inside]
There have been some amazing posts hitting the front page lately and I just wanted to have a place to say thanks. Also, it's an excuse to have a thread where we can just be positive and nice to each other. You're awesome and I like this place and I'm always finding something new and interesting. So thank you to everyone. Those who post and those who comment. And even those who lurk. :)
I'm an inveterate, invertebrate people-pleaser, from a long line of inveterate, invertebrate people-pleasers. It's almost pathological. When I want to say 'no' to someone, I typically have a panic attack, hint around wanting to give a negative answer, then say 'yes' anyway. I then spend weeks kicking myself for saying 'yes' to them.

I can't believe I'm starting this thread. I can't believe that I came home tonight to the most gloriously Metafiltery of Secret Quonsar gifts! [more inside]
I've had this open in a browser window since sometime a week ago Monday. There's been so many good links to videos, interviews, songs, plus all sorts of great stories. This kind of community is part of what's kept me on MeFi for so many years. <3
A mysterious package arrived in the mail this morning. My first thoughts was, "My Quonsar gift?!", followed quickly by "Who on earth would be that on-the-ball to get out their gift this early?!?!" The answer? My Quonsarer, that's who!! Thank you so much for the yummy vegan creme-filled cupcakes, the Japanese "knowledge cards", and the fun maps of San Francisco. Happy Quonsar, everyone!
A much deserved thank you to everyone who took the time to help me during one of the darkest times in my life four years ago. [more inside]
It's the 4th Monday in January, and thus, it is Community Manager Appreciation Day! Felicitations and appreciation to our mods, both past and present: Mathowie, Jessamyn, cortex, vacapinta, restless_nomad, LosterMitten, taz, pb, and goodnewsfortheinsane. [more inside]
My dog just started barking at the UPS man, but I wasn't expecting anything. Or was I? Thank you, Matt Haughey, for the t-shirt (and baby gift to come, squee!!)! I spent several work hours contemplating my own quonsar's gift so I was totally thrilled to be quonsed while in the spirit of things! Secret Quonsar Thank You Thread 2014!
As of yesterday, June 18, 2014, I am, for the very first time in my 43 years, a homeowner. On behalf of all of the 4sters, I would like to offer some words of thanks. [more inside]

Sorry, but I need to make a couple of callouts. [more inside]
GNFTI, you complete MONSTER. How could you. I trusted you. [more inside]
We've had the announcement threads, the planning thread, and the "thank you for the stuff" threads, but I think we all need to take a moment to thank the organizers of the Secret Quonsar swap. [more inside]
Last week, I asked this question. I really was freaking out and sure I was going to screw it up. The memorial service was Friday, and my remarks were extremely well received. [more inside]
Hey MetaFilter, my wife and I would like to express our sincere and profound gratitude for making our wedding the best wedding. [more inside]
After inadvertently causing this pileup, I feel it behooves me as a brand spanking new mum to offer up some baby photos to the community as a thank you for your patience and assistance. OH YEAH I KNOW HOW TO FORM BABBY. [more inside]

I've gotten a lot of useful answers to my AskMe questions, but this question seemed to be a stumper. Until... [more inside]
Word on the street is that there are a number of people still waiting to give public thank yous, but with nowhere to post them. So, without further ado, I would like to say OH MAN SO COOL, THANK YOU!!! to Snarl Furillo for the two very, very awesome pairs of earrings! [more inside]

THNK U, QUONSAR!!!! [more inside]
Just wanting to say "Thank You." [more inside]
I love Metafilter and the site continues to get more awesome, especially with the addition of the feature that shows the number of recent new and as yet invisible comments. I love Metafilter even when mods occasionally reject my questions as inappropriate. Thanks to all the admins; you're doing a great job. That is all.
I posted this question on the green not too long ago about the best cat in the world. My little fellow didn't make it through his surgery but I feel confident those who responded helped make the right decision. Thank you for your support.
I just want to say, "thank you." [more inside]

What's the best way to thank people who answer an Ask Me question? [more inside]
I just noticed that a few early comments of the "This will surely be deleted" kind have been deleted from threads. I just wanted to say to whatever mod responsible: Good on you. And please continue to exterminate them with extreme prejudice.
