So, the world has gone to shit: America is quickly heading toward a fascist dictatorship, Australia is a fresh hellscape of heat and brimstone probably, and I poked myself with a cactus earlier today.

But in spite of all of this, there have been some remarkable things happening, and I would be remiss if I didn't make sure that we all celebrate each other properly.

For another year (26 and counting!), I am alone in love, and that's okay, because I am rich in friendship.

Y'all know what to do, it's a fandom love meme!

I love you and I like you, and I'm in ongoing awe of your resilience. Lately I've also been particularly moved by your commitment to spreading the accurate-gynecology gospel, both in terms of passion and in terms of level of detail.

In short, I have that "amber is my hero" tag for a reason.

I'm so in awe of how forthright you are about the issues you're dealing with, and how you don't allow that to affect your many passions. Your honesty about all things is your greatest virtue, and I hope 2017 gives you all that you deserve.

I love you more than words can say. I am so glad you came into my life and taught me about makeup and friendship and the Knope-ian way of fiercely standing up for what you believe in. I miss you a ton and I miss our Shark Tank/Bar Rescue/4 Weddings days, but I still feel like we communicate as much as we did when you lived here, even if we are missing the opportunity to do a lot of nothing together (which we were great at) plus the occasional adventure. Thank you for being the sister I never had.

Gurl, I have got to give you props for staying optimistic whilst job hunting, something that is truly difficult to do. I'm sure you'll find something that is the right fit for you soon. Thank you for being so frank in speaking about your depression and ongoing recovery/upswing. Keep doing you!

You are so great. I love how much you continue to care about things that matter, but you also take the time to say "yes, but xyz would be more effective because of q and i know this because of p." Your commitment to doing good things makes me happy, and your commitment to fictional characters is, in these times, as always, admirable.

First off, have I ever mentioned how much I love your Tumblr tags? Because I do.

I'm so glad your unemployment was super-brief, even though I'm still baffled by the idea of traveling to another state for a job. Maybe in 2017 we can finally get Floo powder? I mean it's the least the universe could do for us.

And you've been a guiding light in this shitty political reality we live in, and I am so grateful for that.

Darling Allison, your thoughtfulness to your friends knows no bounds. You hold us together like a Groot cage, except instead of branches it's all your fantastic knitting. I admire the time that you will devote to your passions, both fannish and otherwise, and you always know the best link to send me and brighten my day. I deeply wish that you lived closer to me, even though that would be counterproductive to your new commute.

My spy sister and all around wonderful human being. I love seeing any notification from you on Tumblr/Gmail/etc because it means I'm about to see something hilarious or read something thought provoking about something I love. You are incredibly thoughtful and are a beautiful and strong lemur who has been a huge influence on how I've been handling the after effects of this election. In short, I love you a lot.

I am so excited for everything for you this year! You are so awesome and generous to all your friends, and I know that's gonna be the case for Wee Alex. I fully expect her to be born holding a book, BTW.

HI EMILY

You are going to be such an awesome parent, because you're kind and passionate and caring, not mention funny as hell. You have excellent spousal taste, appreciate a good cardigan, and really embrace this whole "I'M A COMPASS" business (which as someone who is overinvested in starry-night images, I'm into).

Also, Laura is right, your kid is totally coming into this world, hardcover in hand.

Emily Emily Emily MLE.

I love you so much. TBH I am on lots of cold meds rightnow and am failing to put things into words. I am so impressed at how you have handled all of the chnages that happened in your life this summer (seriously, tell five years ago emily about this shit, she wouldn't believe you). I'm proud of you for putting up boundaries with your mom, and still managing to be there for me as an awesome friend.

And unlike these jokers, I hope your baby doesn't come out with a book, for the sake of your vagina.

I'm so excited for your new addition this year and can't wait to see you and BOE as parents to your lil narwhal. You always crack me up and I can't wait until Thrones come back so we can commence the objectification of our favorite ginger beard. You are a lovely and supportive person and an all around delight.

your ability to make me laugh is so appreciated in the times we are living in. You are a delight and I am glad that I have you around in my computer and phone.

You have a WICKED sense of humor and a sharp wit, and I love it. I am glad you get to offset dealing with the shitty state our country is in by your continuously amazing travels, of which I am more than mildly jealous. I am so glad you are in my life, and I hope you can come back to Chicago and spend more time with Lana soon.

Thank you for tirelessly beating the outrage gong. Like, I feel like I know a lot of people who are mad on social media right now, but your anger is righteous and no-holds-barred and occasionally hilarious and always, always what I'm thinking. KEEP YELLING!

Also, I had a meeting earlier where some Italian saint's day that's apparently big in Rhode Island had to be explained to me, and I thought you'd appreciate being equally in the dark on such things <3

I'm here just in time for this to be some birthday love too, so hooray for timing on my part. ;) As I've always said, I really admire how you stand up for your beliefs in such a smart and informative way, which is something that is truly needed now more than ever. Keep kicking ass and taking names and one of these days we've got to sports together, at a live sporting event, or somewhere where we can also listen to Jack White.

You are one of the funniest and most incisive people I know, and I'm in awe of your punning abilities and of the depth of your commitment to Canada and all things Soviet. The grace and determination you show whenever life gets you down are straight-up inspirational, and your proactive moves toward more self-love and enjoying the fuck out of life are just...awesome.

I adore you, and if I could purchase River Song's hallucinogenic lipstick (or the anti-Monopoly Capitalism board game) for you, I would.

Where to begin? You're a quick-witted, bodacious badass who is always making me laugh. But you also have such a beautiful, artistic eye. I never fail to be awed by your photos of Detroit. The love you have for your city is amazing, you are truly Leslie Knope's kin.
