As another week draws to a close, we want to give a shout-out to the best people in our book right now.

Let’s start with the Delta pilot who ordered pizza for the entire plane when it was stuck on the tarmac! Hot cheese on a sad plane? Delivered on a luggage cart? This is the coolest pilot of all time. Airplane pizza should always be a thing.

Meanwhile, professional basketball player Stephen Curry is now more famous for his two-year-old daughter than his skills. How could you not love this kid? Riley Curry is the new internet cat. She waddles into frames to add no substance, but pure joy.

Here’s Riley’s press conference debut from May 19.

Wednesday night, the Warriors made it to the NBA finals, and Riley made it onto the court to celebrate. And in the press conference that followed, Riley made a surprise appearance. She’s just so GIF-able!

Our next best goes to a group of seniors at a New Hampshire high school who donated $8000 when they found out their principal needed money for cancer treatment. The money was supposed to be for a senior trip, but the class unanimously voted to donate it instead.

Our final best of the night goes to author J.K. Rowling, who tweeted that Gandalf and Dumbledore could get married in Ireland, now that the country has legalized same-sex marriage.

The Westboro Baptist Church responded with hateful messages, and Rowling replied with this tweet:

She also added this:
