More Google That Sucka

Back in Feb. I told you about some things I learned on Google.

Since then I've learned a few more things that I can share with you.

1. Race you, Race you...Have you heard the amazon.com TV commercial? The words are "I'm gonna race you, race you, race you, race you back home". I wondered out loud if it was a real song, but nobody knew. So I googled RACE YOU AMAZON COMMERCIAL and found out that it is a real song by Elizabeth and the Catapult.

2. Hairy Legs... The last time I was at the beach with a friend, she remarked that since we are in our mid-50's now, we don't have to shave our legs as often. I decided to find out if it was true. I googled LESS LEG HAIR AS YOU AGE? I was lead to the livestrong.com website that is partnered with Lance Armstrong's foundation. It's true, your leg hair growth slows down as you age. The pack of 16 Venus cartridges that I bought yesterday will probably last the rest of my life!

3. KNOW ANY TAINO?... I was behind a car with a bumper sticker that said PROUD TO BE TAINO. I had never heard of Taino, so you know what I did? I googled TAINO and found out that Taino are the indigenous people of Puerto Rico,Cuba, Dominican Republic, Bahamas and other islands of the Caribbean.

4.KNOW ANY BLOGGERS?...Since the Great October Computer Crash I have been trying to recreate my bloglist. I don't remember the names of a lot of blogs I used to read. I would usually just go down my list and click. I've been googling them the way I remember them and have found about half of your personal blogs and very few of the cooking blogs I used to read. If I haven't left a comment on your blog in a long time, I may have to wait until your blog name pops up in my brain or I see you comment on someone else's blog.

I love me some Google. Esp. songs in commercials. How I found Florence + the Machine (Eat Pray Love commercial). Glad you remembered me.

I google songs I hear on TV all the time. And most of the time I have to do it quickly because I'll forget the lyrics I just heard on a commercial, ha ha ha :D

About the blog list, was your list saved on your hard drive? What about keeping a list here on your blog, that way rest assured you won't lose it (unless your blog crashes, of course).

Thank you for the encouraging words about growing less hair as I age. That? Made my day.

I'm going to hope and pray that I will indeed have to shave less the older I get.

I love to google. I also love TV commercial songs. I have a special playlist folder in my iPod with all the ones I've found. Thanks for a new one.

I don't care about the shaving of legs, it's Aunt Flo I'd like to finally be done with! Perimenopause bites.

Very funny post. I google everything too.

And I'm with Green Girl. Less hair growth?! Hallelujah!
