If the song ‘Happy’ hasn’t bored it’s way through your skull and permanently etched itself onto your brain then you’ve been missing out. I mean I heard that song at least 6 times today, and each time I just thought “man, I AM happy”!

Then I realize I will never be cool enough to wear a hat like this and I think, “man, maybe I’m not happy.”

There are some people who can just do whatever they want. Pharrell is one of those people. Pharrell could get away with murder, while he wears this hat…

Pharrell’s hats say so much about him, music, and the world…

#1. The military should be taken very seriously…

He is a huge supporter of the military, which is nice to see coming from Hollywood..Image

Let’s take a closer look..

Wait… I’m getting mixed messages here.

#2. It’s okay to continually wear the same outrageous thing, as long as it’s in different colors…

#5. Pharrell was once attacked but a pack of wolves. He killed them all with his bare hands and now wears their fur from head to toe despite temperatures in LA being consistently in the 80’s.

#6. Pharrell and his wife are surprisingly frugal. When they were asked about their marriage Pharrell said “we save a lot of money by sharing all of our clothes. Being the exact same size as my partner is something I knew I needed in life”

#7. Pharrell has a very serious disease called duplicationphia. He is unable to only buy one color of hat. He claims he is on medication, but it doesn’t seem to be helping.

#8. Pharrell does a lot of charity work with the youths in his home town of Virginia Beach. In a unrelated story there have been reports of children’s hats disappearing from that same area.

#9. Like a crocodile that needs to close it’s eyes when it’s mouth is open, Pharrell must close his eyes when he is not wearing a hat.

#10. When Pharrell doesn’t have time to choose a hat, he simply throws a blanket on his head, and it works.

Thursday = Thor’s Day

I discovered today that Thursday comes from the Old English Þunresdæg = “Thunor’s Day. Then you lose the -n- due to the influence of the Old Norse and get Þorsdagr which means = “Thor’s Day !

There is a lot of other boring information about origin and languages but let’s just skip that and get to what we should be doing…

Learning. Daddy Issues. Giraffes.

They say you learn something new everyday. That sentiment sounds so very whimsical but it may be total doo doo. I know for a fact there have been days I’ve done more forgetting than learning, days I have actually lowered my IQ. Learning something new everyday should be intentional. If I learn things accidentally in the process of life I’m not going to be upset about it but I think it’s important to take an active approach to learning.

As an adult we tend to become complacent. It’s understandable, we have already put in our time being forced to learn. We get into jobs where more often than not we are doing the same tasks day in and day out. Many of us will do this until we are old. At which point we will sit in “our” chair, clinging tightly to the remote, talking about old dogs and new tricks in a condescending tone. Well to this I say, no thank you. Learning is a privilege and can be so amazing when done by choice. When you take the time to learn about something you’ve always wanted to it empowers you. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you already know. It is a gift no one can take away from you and I LOVE gifts.

So lets get learning! Don’t have anything in particular you wanna learn about today?

It’s okay, we will take it slow and start with something fun……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lets talk about giraffes.

  • Giraffes are the tallest mammals on Earth. Their legs alone are taller than many humans—about 6 feet.
  • They can run as fast as 35 miles an hour over short distances, or cruise at 10 mph over longer distances.
  • A giraffe’s neck is too short to reach the ground. As a result, it has to awkwardly spread its front legs or kneel to reach the ground for a drink of water.
  • Giraffes only need to drink once every few days. Most of their water comes from all the plants they eat.
  • Female giraffes give birth standing up. Their young falls more than 5 feet to the ground at birth.
  • Giraffes learn to stand just 30 minutes after birth and can run with their mothers just 10 hours after birth.
  • A giraffe’s feet are the size of a dinner plate—approximately 12 inches across.
    • Females use their hooves as weapons to protect their young. They are strong enough to kill a lion.
  • Both male and female giraffes have two distinct, hair-covered horns called ossicones. Male giraffes use their horns to sometimes fight with other males.
  • Giraffes are a ruminant, which means they have more than one stomach to help them digest their food. In fact, they have 4 stomachs!
  • A giraffe’s spots are much like human fingerprints. No two individual giraffes have exactly the same pattern.
  • The age of a giraffe can be calculated from its spots. The darker the spots, the older the giraffe.
