Googling Oneself & Other Oddities This Thursday

Oh c'mon, don't act all innocent - you know you want to know alllllllll about you, even if that you isn't you but someone else who dares to have your same name - bitches! So, in the act of googling my maiden name for images, I ran across this paragraph and while I am not the one who wrote this, I can tell you she is my long-lost twin. Does this not sound like me (and true enough to be kinda scary too):


I'm Debbi and I really don't care if you put an "e" on the end of my name or not. I came up with the "Debbi" spelling whan I was about 7 and my teacher insisted I choose a spelling for my name: "y" or "ie." So I choose neither. In any case, I've been using it since.

So … yea. You can tell I didn’t write this – I would have spelled “when” correctly and put the period after the end-quotes, but that’s just me and my OCD

It’s been awhile since I could post – I have very tight restrictions on Internet and email access where I work and while I HAD blog capabilities last week, that is apparently no longer true. Makes me wonder if I’m the first person at my company to attempt to visit or compose blogs and if the proxy server made an executive decision to ban me.

The good news is, I am very, Very caught up on current events. CNN’s website is allowed. I could tell you all about the Florida woman with a missing toddler who didn’t tell police for 5 weeks that her child was missing (can you say, killed her?) I’ve been keeping track of oil prices – dropped the last three days. Local gas stations … have not dropped. But they’ll crank it up as soon as the drop stops and the oil prices go up. What goes up … must stay up. New rules, you’re outta here Newton!

This picture cracks me up … googling images again … I have the song Mr. Horrible stuck on my mind (don’t ask, I have no answers), so I googled it. This is what I got. I thought it should be shared.

On the subject of googling and the as-you-go-along spell-check on my Firefox browser: Get with it People, it’s 2008 and googling is the latest xeroxing … if we can’t use brand names to appropriately define our actions (when there are words that already exist to do so, yes, I know!) then we need to have a talk. I will not use the word “searching” when I can more aptly use googling to get the point across – and sound “rad” and “with it”. So get with it, spell-check, I don’t want to have to have this talk with you again! (Rad is too a word!!)

* * * * * * * * * *

That’s all I have today. I’m not trying to kill time at work, so no googling for intellectual purposes. Meandering and mumbling, that’s what I’m all about. Rad.

It typically takes about a week to ten days for gas prices to reflect a drop in oil prices. So they could drop sometime next week. I still fight the urge to throw up every time I drive by the gas station -- or spent $40 to put in half a tank of gas.

Are you aware of how crazed you sound, Dbz? ;) [Calling Mr. Kettle...]

I'm not crazy! I'm RAD. And With It. RAD and With It. Just like Jan Brady
