As we enter into our last few weeks of 2016 it’s important to keep a positive attitude. Not all has been lost, people there’s still plenty to feel good about and the worst is behind us (we hope.)
Tbh, all of you Debbie Downers out there could use a nice dose of optimism. So, here are a few individuals who carried us through this week and are sure to put a smile on your face.
1. Chrissy Teigen
Tbh, Chrissy Teigen should really maintain a permanent spot on our list just for her mere existence as an all around badass human being. She’s always up to something that makes us say “hell yes.” This week she boosted our spirits with a hilarious and unbelievably sexy video for Day 16 of Love magazine’s annual Advent calendar.
In the video the 31-year-old Sports Illustrated model is sporting some retro jazzercise wear that looks like it belongs in Eric Prydz’s “Call On Me” video. She jumps around allowing viewers to enjoy her from every angle and then seductively eats a plate of french fries. A woman after our own hearts.
2. This adorable couple
Roz and Ian Ellis AKA “The World’s Cutest Couple” first met in 1967, got engaged after a few months, and married the following year. Unfortunately, the pair drifted apart and divorced in 1991 after 3 kids and 8 grandchildren. 23 years later, after they had both remarried and both of their partners passed away, they reconnected at their son’s wedding and realized they still had feelings for each other. It wasn’t long before they planned to remarry. *Sniff*
“I never thought we’d get married again, but I’m so happy that we did.” Roz said. She even kept her original wedding ring and plans to use it again for this wedding.
I’m not crying, you’re crying!
3. The Japanese Spaceship
It might not technically be Santa’s sleigh driven by reindeer, but this Japanese cargo ship is pretty damn jolly. The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s robotic H-II Transfer Vehicle 6 arrived at the International Space Station on Tuesday to make a Christmas delivery to the outpost’s six-person crew.
The vehicle was said to be filled with water, spare parts and other supplies — perhaps even some Christmas gifts — for the six Expedition 50 astronauts currently living on the space station. If that’s not holiday spirit, I don’t know what is.
4. This incredible woman
It will never cease to baffle me how men can be so sexually aggressive over social media and text messaging. What makes them think that this is okay? Is your dick typing for you?
One woman, a legend if you will, from Leeds, England encountered a stranger and pig of a man who began pressuring her for nude photos. His opening line read: “Hey Katy ur so hot love ur boobs I’m a farmer.” Ummmm, WTF? No sir, no just stop right there. After a few more unsolicited/creepy AF messages, Katy decided to fire back in the most hilariously savage way. She convinced Creepy McCreeperson to kiss his tractor in exchange for scandalous “pics.” And to no one’s surprise, the dumbass actually did it.
Round of applause to Katy, you’re our hero.
5. Hilary Duff
Last, but certainly not least on our list of kickass people this week is the one and only Hilary Duff. The Lizzie McGuire star was enjoying a special trip to Disneyland with her son and decided to post an adorable picture of the two of them kissing on Instagram. It’s seriously one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen.
However, the trolls of the internet came crawling out and bombarding Duff with negative comments insisting that this behavior with her son was “inappropriate.” Like, really? REALLY? People are so ridiculous. Fortunately, Duff had the perfect response to these haters which she posted shortly after her photo.
