You Learn Something New Everyday

I thought it would be fun to let you guys into my head a little bit. My phone saves all of my google searches and as I was scrolling through them today I had several laughs at myself. (I am nothing if not completely random.) So I thought I would share with you my new knowledge. I guarantee you will learn something today.

Google Search #1: So today while watching the Today Show I realized I didn’t know Prince Williams’ last name. Um, is this totally common knowledge and I am just a total moron? Well, peeps, the reason why I didn’t know this is that Prince William doesn’t really have a last name. It is Prince William of Wales.


His full name is William Arthur Phillip Louis Windsor, so his surname is sort of Windsor, though his grandmother (the Queen) has stipulated it is Mountbatten-Windsor, but the legal process necessary to change it is not yet complete. I didn’t go so far as to google whether he had a driver’s license…but that might be up next.


Google Search #2: Do donkeys have umbilical cords? I have a friend and she has mini-donkeys and I wondered if they came out attached. Just so you know…they do. Gross. (Is this common knowledge???)

Google Search #3: What is the gestational period for a mini-donkey? For reasoning on this question, see above. 11-13 months and they are 20 – 30 pounds at birth.

Google Search #4: Which then got me wondering what the gestational period is for a dog. People, 9 weeks. Like no time.

Google Search #5: My friend (the one with the mini-donkeys) and I were talking about the show What Not to Wear. Do you guys remember that guy who was the host before Clinton???


This one:

Who totally didn’t look like he could host a show about What not to Wear. His name is Wayne Scot Lukas. And he is a stylist. I seriously would have never known.


Okay, I hope you learned something today! (Or do I just not know anything???) Tomorrow I am bringing you some things I am loving.

WHAT?? There was a host before Clinton?? That guy does NOT look like he should be hosting the show.. more like he should be gracing the cover of some trashy romance novel, aka Fabio.

A mini donkey???????? Seriously Katie.
