Happy New Year! (Gift: Meme Marriage Proposal)

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR (to those on or East of the Prime Meridian)!

To celebrate this first day of humanity's last year on earth, according to the people who seem to think the Mayan's stopped producing calendars past the year 2012 because they were predicting the end of the earth, rather than it was simply the end of their 'calendar' cycle and they probably just figured they'd save themselves the trouble/extra work now and let the future generation continue once they got to that point (and lo and behold, they didn't have to bother), I present to you an amazing, heart-warming video.

Usually, because I enjoy trolling websites like 9gag and Taste of Awesome and Failbook, I tend to come across hilarious or cute or ridiculous things that I want to share with people who might not have as much free time on their hands as I do.

Now, I don't know if it's because it's 5am (it's currently the 30th, and stupid time zones mean that though it's a decent hour in New York, it's obnoxiously late in the Motherland) or because this is insanely adorable or because I'm a stereotypical female but this particular video just made me cry.

Yeah, I said it. I cried.

Not in a bad way, mind you, but in a 'oh my God, I have so much faith in humanity because people as loving and awkward and geeky and beautiful as this exist out there' kind of way. I was moved, and I dare you to not be moved as well. Before you decide to accept that challenge (because, really, who wouldn't take that as a challenge?) keep in mind that if this doesn't melt your heart a bit, you should probably have an angel check if your soul is there and not locked in some hell cage with Lucifer and an Archangel. Just saying.

A virtual cookie to those who get the very very obvious reference.
