Wow 2016… you’ve been awesome but sometimes you’ve been the suckiest year that ever sucked!
We sadly waved goodbye as the likes of David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Alan Rickman and Gene Wilder left us.
Sadly the unforgettable Harambe left us too. #neverforget
2016 also had the Rio Olympic Games! Huzzuh!
There were unforgettable sporting moments; like the Women’s Rugby Sevens, Mack Horton and Kyle Chalmers winning gold for Australia! Usain Bolt won ‘Gold, Gold, Gold for Jamaica!’ and made sport look way too easy.
Pita Nikolas Taufatofua also produced the goods (ie: his hot oiled up body bearing the flag of Tonga’)
With all this sparkle there was a little murkiness; mainly the threat of Zika virus, crime, water pollution, bullet holes, that green pool and of course the ever so ditzy liar liar pants on fire Ryan Lochte.
2016 was the year of the iPhone 7
And the Samsung Note 7
And the realisation that love is DEAD after the demise of Brad and Angie, Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney and Taylor Swift and … everyone else? (I plan to wed Calvin so it was a win for me)
But 2016 did produce the boom chicka wah wah for Prince Harry And Meghan Markle, Ruby Rose and Jess Origliasso and Miley and Liam who somehow found love again! Anything is possible now people!
I’m not going to bum us all out with mention of Donald Trump.
So cheers 2016 for being great - but here’s to a happy, healthy, fun, easy breezy 2017 with all the trimmings!
