In an effort to break through a Monday full of administration, rain, and generalized tedium of being a stellarly mediocre Monday in general, I’m going to talk about something a little more (ok, a LOT more) inspiring.
The font of all knowledge, Wikipedia describes them as mythical creatures with horns coming from their heads. According to the other font of all knowledge, the Harry Potter Wiki, unicorn blood looks like liquid mercury, but once drunk, creates a “half” immortal life. The term in Urban dictionary has some less than promising definitions (which I’ll let you look up on your own), but frankly, to me, unicorns. Are. Awesome!
Allegedly, according to Urban Dictionary, unicorn tears taste like Framboise Lambic.*
You can purchase unicorn excrement cookies here. (They are rainbow-colored.)
As for other unicorn secretions, there is much debate about what an actual unicorn would in fact excrete from his or her horn, as well as, erhm, the other bits. Here’s one that secretes lemonade and fire from the horn–called the Katy Perry Unicorn?
There’s unicorn references o’plenty over at Pinterest – like this, this, and this. Here’s a cool coffee mug on unicorns. Here’s the ultimate in unicorian desk awesomeness, which I definitely need to get in order to hold down my glitter for cards.
I know what you’re thinking at this point: “Hey, Albert, what’s the point here?!?” Honestly, I don’t know. Other than I’m fighting off my Monday and yours by giving you something magical to believe in. Unicorns aren’t administrative, lame, boring or rainy. They’re cool, mystical, fun and colorful. Even if it’s raining, gloomy, Monday and full of administration–unicorns rule. Believe, people, in something better than Monday. Believe, my people, in the awesome. Believe…in the unicorn.
*Drink responsibly, peeps.
