It's been a while since I've had to dust off the Memetoid banner, but this meme unquestionably has its heart in the right place. I love Destructoid just as much as anyone, it's why I volunteered to help with the recaps. Contrary to what I posted in the regular nightly recap,
I really don't mind recapping a day like today. Not to say that I'd like to go through this every week, but when the reasoning behind the meme is an outpouring of love and respect like this, it makes me proud to be a part of the site, if only tangentially.
I've been coming to Destructoid for over 2 years now, and no matter what time of day I log in, it's easy for me to spend an hour or more catching up on the front page and my favorite community member's C-blogs. There's soul here. People share their passions, their drive, their art and their writing. Through all of these things in addition to podcasts and videos, this website and its community has become a sort of family to me-- albeit one I don't get to spend as much time with as I'd like. I may never have the time to be an A-list member, but I hope my contributions enhance your browsing, at least a little. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Think nothing of the numbers by the individual posts. They are listed chronologically, nothing more... the fact that they are numbered is only due to my own intellectual curiosity about how far this meme spread.
Before I get started, here are some of the best pictures posted in relation to the meme.
If it were a graceful option, I'd mail these out to my family.

There are quite a few more, but I hope you'll understand I'm quite tired at this point.

(Guys, that was a BIG hint.) <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
