Hug buckets

So the other day, I was doing my morning catch-up-on-Youtube-athon, and one of the videos that was suggested to me at the end of a Vlogbrothers video was this April 2010 offering from Hank Green:

I like this for two reasons:
1. I, much like Hank, enjoy poetry that doesn't confuse me.
2. The idea of a hug bucket is totally awesome.

As a result, I started thinking about who would be in my hug bucket, and I came up with the following lists:

List the first - famous people who are made of awesome:
  • Tom Hiddleston
  • David Tennant
  • Catherine Tate
  • J.K. Rowling
  • John Green
  • Hank Green
  • Terry Pratchett
  • Joss Whedon
  • Barack Obama (not because of his politics. Just because the dude has a LOT of pressure on him 24/7, and he deserves a hug to say "thanks for doing your job and not blowing up the world!")
  • Neil Patrick Harris
  • Robert Downey Jr (you know how some people say "If Britney can get through 2007, you can get through this day"? My version of that is "If RDJ can get through 1996-2001 and make an amazing comeback, you can get the hell out of bed")
  • John Barrowman
  • Jason Segel
  • Colin Firth
  • Maggie Smith
  • Joshua Jackson
  • Tina Fey
  • Seth Green
  • Jensen Ackles
  • Johnny Depp
  • Gail Carriger
  • Hugh Jackman (for proving that one person can play Wolverine AND sing the lead on Broadway)
  • Nathan Fillion
  • Alan Tudyk
  • Sandra Oh
  • Julie Andrews 
  • Jeremy Renner

List the second - bloggers who are made of awesome, but live rudely far away/don't know I exist/I can never seem to organise a time to meet up with:

List the third - people who are automatically in the bucket without the need to think about it or specify them by name:
  • My family
  • My friends
  • Pretty much every puppy on the face of the earth

So. Who's in YOUR hug bucket??
