1. She's beaten cancer...twice.

Justice Ginsburg was first diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999. During her treatment, which included surgery, chemotheraphy, and radiation treatment, she did not miss one day on the bench.

In 2009 she had surgery related to pancreatic cancer and heard oral arguments a mere 12 days later.

4. She was a complete and total babe.

Look at that perfect face and hair!! This picture from her senior year at Cornell taken in 1953 is the epitome of the kind of girl your mom would want you to bring home.

8. There is a slew of great swag featuring her.

Full disclosure, I own this shirt. Don't wear it if you don't want people stopping you every five minutes to comment on how awesome it is, especially if you live in DC.

15. She's basically a body builder.

Well, maybe that's an exaggeration. But in a profile by Jeffrey Toobin it was revealed that Justice Ginsburg works out with a personal trainer, can do 20 push ups, and works out on machines with a higher resistance level than Justice Breyer.

16. She had dreams of being a diva.

She has said that if God could give her any talent she would be "a great diva" in the operatic sense.

Even if she isn't an opera star, she is still a complete and total diva in our books.

17. She and President Obama have the most adorable friendship.

She has a picture of him hugging her hanging in her office, and he has talked about his "soft spot" for her.

Does anyone else just want to go happy hour with these two and watch the platonic love fest unfold in person?!
