We had a full weekend. Lots of blog-worthy activities. I even have pictures related to these events.
But Monday posts are hard for me to write. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just part of my work-week-aversion. Maybe it’s because I try to limit my Sunday computer time.
Maybe it’s because our weekends are usually busy, and by Sunday night, I’m tired.
Take right now, for instance. I’m writing this on Sunday night, glad my headache is fading, watching Jim Gaffigan talk about bacon on my TV, and wondering how early I can go to bed and not be weird. Tiiiired.
So, for today, this is what I have for you: a little story about Google.
On Friday, I decided to make some changes to my blog. You may have noticed. But it didn’t all work out right, and I couldn’t figure out how to fix everything to my liking. So I went to the master of all things: Google.
Before I could type in my full search term, Mr. Google tried to guess what I was looking for. I typed, “how to,” and Google came up with:
How to tie a tie
How to kiss
How to get pregnant
How to lose weight
How to make a website
How to write a resume
How to draw
How to solve a rubix cube
How to write a cover letter
How to get a passport
I just thought this was interesting. I’m assuming these must have been the most common how-to searches on Friday afternoon. I’m just wondering . . . do you think the same people were searching for instructions on kissing and getting pregnant?
My question for the day is: What is one thing you’d like to learn how to do?
I'd like to learn how to sew. When I was growing up, my mom made most of our clothes and quite a bit of our home decor. My thirties have found our budget tight and my brain leaning towards the craftiness more than usual, so I think sewing could come in reeeeeeal handy.
take an advanced class on photoshop. possible start a card design business. the thought of ever having time to do these things makes my head spin.
I'd have to say 'sew' also. I'm tall and nothing ever fits quite right. I always wanted to be able to hem and alter my own clothes!
Just to let you know, I have had this song in my head all day thanks to you! :)
I'd like to learn how to solve a rubix cube — looks like I'm not alone! ;)
Gosh, tough question Mary! Would it be lame (and sound really pathetic) to ask "how do I rustle up some coffee friends in my new town…and FAST?!!!
Play the piano…definitely :)
haha… i love your kiss/get pregnant comment!
i would love to know how to play the guitar. and how to make a decision. and how to say no. and how to keep my house organized. and how to fly a plane. and how to…
there are way too many things out there! so i'll just narrow it down to this list. i'll go with solve a rubix cube.
I'm with all the "sew'ers" out there…I want to learn how to sew!!! REALLY bad! Someday I want to turn my kids blankies into one big quilt for Mommy…someday…
I'd really like to learn Spanish. It used to be French because you could travel to most countries overseas and communicate w/anyone if you spoke French. Today, I think we need Spanish to communicate with a growing population in this country. Blessings, SusanD
