If You Feelin’ Like a Capricorn…

…go and brush your shoulders off.  -Blue Ivy

Can we please talk about how many epic Capricorns there are?  I feel like within the past few weeks when a celebrity’s birthday has appeared on my Twitter timeline, I’ve been blown away by how dope they are.  They clearly have always been a Cap, but I feel this year it’s more in my face.

Let’s take a look.  Oh, and I may be biased because I, too, am a Capricorn.  The very last day.

December 22 – January 19

What are the characteristics of a Capricorn, you ask?

Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, is all about hard work.  Those born under this sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the office, realizing that it will likely take a lot of those days to get to the top.  That’s no problem, since Capricorns are both ambitious and determined: they will get there.  The Capricorn-born are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness. Those victories sure smell sweet, though, and that thought alone will keep Capricorns going.*

And don’t try to tell me with the new shift in the moon or whatever the heck happened that a new sign was added and I’m now a Sagittarius.  Nope.  Definitely a Capricorn – a natural goal setter who needs structure.  And clearly stubborn.

A friend, who is also a Capricorn, brought to my attention that we end the year and kick off the new one!  Never thought about it like that.  Pretty kewl.

Okay, back to the list – in no order of importance:

  • Betty White – LEGEND
  • Michelle Obama – just amazing
  • Calvin Harris – smokeshow
  • John Legend – actual Legend
  • Denzel Washington – I mean.
  • Diane Von Furstenberg – fierce
  • Bradley Cooper – babe
  • Eddie Redmayne – baby face cute
  • BLUE IVY – Beyonce’s child
  • LeBron – the King
  • Gabby Douglas – Olympic extraordinaire
  • Martin Luther King Jr. – thank you.
  • Muhammad Ali – incredible
  • Liam Hemsworth – boyfriend
  • Pitbull – Mr. 305
  • Jim Carrey – hello, he stars in my favorite movie Dumb & Dumber

So there you have it.  A whole list of epic people.  There are more, but the above are folks who really stood out to me.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to get some work done so I can go drink steins and eat sausages with my friends later tonight to celebrate.

Talk soon, yinz!

Happy Burshday to you!

Happy 37th birthday to this smoke show and dancer of a man!

I know someone should be singing ‘happy birthday’ to him, but this gives me life, and if one of you lovely readers wouldn’t mind posting this on my Facebook wall for my birthday *cough January 19 cough* that would be nice.

Reasons why I love Usher:

  • He can dance.
  • He can sing.
  • He’s easy on the eye.
  • Have you seen him shirtless?
  • He was one of the first artists I really connected with on an R&B level back when My Way was released in 1997.
  • I did my first ever hip-hop dance to his hit song ‘Yeah.’
  • He has his own nonprofit, Usher’s New Look, helping youth ‘find a path to leadership and help them make career choices that match their passion.’
  • He has given all of us ample music to pregame to.
  • Michael Jackson (RIP!) was and probably still is one of his biggest influences.
  • He has also perfected the moonwalk.  Again, thank you MJ.
  • He dated a member of TLC.
  • He provided me with an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to his ‘UR Experience Tour’ via another Twitter contest, thanks to RevoltTV.
  • His concerts is pure entertainment from beginning to end.
  • He looked right at me during TWO tapings of The Voice.
  • And did I mention he can dance?

I know this list will only continue to grow, and I look forward to see what he will do next!

Oh, and happy National Dessert Day!  Maybe I will bake a birthday cake tonight in Ursher’s honor.
