Random Googling

In the face of boredom, that small time in which you’re EXHAUSTED yet not-quite-tired-enough-to-sleep, which may actually be a sorry case of too-tired-to-sleep in which my body both craves a coma and strong cup of coffee (or 1,126), I decided to combat my pre-sleep boredom by…. Random Googling!

How does it work?

I sign into google images and look up (one word at a time) the first word that pops in my head. then I save the first picture that pops up, and post it here. And since I just began, Lord knows what I’m going to find!

Word: PRETTY

RandomImage1

She is pretty, but I was hoping for something a little more exciting. Let’s see what the next word brings us.

Word: INTRIGUING

RandomImage1Intriging

I think “Intriguing” suits this picture…. As does “creepy”….

Word: NAUGHTY

Santa Edward??

Santa Edward??

(Note: This was a dangerous word to google, I know, but I had to see what it came up with. This wasn’t the FIRST picture that came up, as the first was a little too “naughty” for my blog, but this was definitely my first pick!)

Word: DANGEROUS

RandomImageBear

I’ll say.

(Not the first pic, again I have to break my rule a little. The first picture that came up was an image of the album cover for Michael Jackson’s “Dangerous”. Boring. So I chose the most awesome pic instead.)

Word: BORING

RandomImageBoring

Word: TRIUMPHANT

RandomImageTriumphant

This man makes ME feel triumphant!

Word: EXTRAVAGANT

"Extravagant" doesn't even begin to cover it.

“Extravagant” doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Word: BODACIOUS

RandomBodacious

??

I was hoping for something more like this;

RandomBillandTedOr;

I got this by googling "Bodacious Babe".

I got this by googling “Bodacious Babe”.

This one too.

This one too.

Last one!

Word: EPIC

(No cheating, I actually chose the FIRST one that came up, not the one I wanted)

RandomEPIC

 

That concludes this evening’s version of “Random Googling” Until Next Time!!

I hear the music, close my eyes I am rhythm…

“I am what I am and I do what I do”

I LOVE that.

It’s none of my business what people say or think about me, and it’s none of their business what I say or do. This is today’s lesson for myself. I am learning today to think for myself, to listen to my inner voice, to decide for myself what is right and what is wrong for me.

openmindedbooks

I expect nothing

And accept Everything.

Selfcare

And no matter what, remember: You are never as stuck as you think you are. We all have free choice, you just need to learn how to use it. Find ways to make yourself happy, and it’ll soon come as naturally to you as breathing.

And now, just for fun, some more pictures of summer.

This Post Is So Random! And somewhat sexy…

I was analyzing randomness the other day. Mostly because I had been having a very random day, and I like random humor, and I think a lot of people do too. Unexpected, ironic even.

Oops, my ice cream is melting.

It seemed like everything that happened that day was happening out of the blue, completely random, with meaning- though I wasn’t entirely sure what kind of meaning that was.  For instance, the dominos game I was playing with a group of people. It started with the loser from last week’s game winning three in a row hands down the best wins I’d ever seen.

“Joy to the world, all the boys and girls now. Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me…”

And then just as if somebody had flipped a switch, suddenly the lady across from us was winning hands down, three in a row. And during our excited conversation about that and whether or not the voice on the television in the other room belonged to Alan Alda or not, it occured to me.

As a little girl, I had a crush on Alan Alda. In fact, I think I still might (the uh, 1972-1983 one, not the 76 year old one now.)

As if that wasn’t all amazing enough, after a couple more random games of dominos- me and the partner I was playing with won THREE IN A ROW!! That blew us all away. The ONLY games we’d never lost!!

That also happened to be the day that I saw the stupid car tailgating a handicapped man in a wheelchair, as is told in Peeved As A Pet. That alone was random for the fact that I hadn’t seen the man in a long time, and sometimes I still find myself surprised by the pure stupidity of other people.

Of course, what I thought after seeing that was that he should be carrying around a shotgun on his wheelchair- nobody would tailgate him again after that. Of course, we wouldn’t want him getting pulled over by a cop. Then again, I’m pretty sure he’s a retired disabled vet, so he may just be packing and we don’t know it.

I mean, I realize that Captain Pierce was a womanizer and I knew that, even as a little girl, but he had such a way with the ladies and a suaveness I didn’t quite understand at my age. Now I know he was just a horny jackass, doesn’t make him any less suave.

(I don’t like to CHANGE my work, so on this day, 30th January, 2013, I have something important to ADD to this blog: I’ve been watching MASH from episode one through all eleven seasons and I must give my sincerest apologies to Doctor Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce, Captain at the M.A.S.H 4077. Why? Because in my young opinion of him and the miscellaneous episode of MASH I caught on Nick at Nite, I failed to see just how wonderfully moral and such a humanitarian he is. I mean, how could I miss that? How many lives he’s saved, children and elderly, soldier and civilian, friendly and enemy, even horse and dog alike, without a thought beyond everyone is human and deserves a chance to live. How honorable. His way of hitting on the ladies was his way of dealing with the traumas he saw day in and day out, something perhaps a youngster couldn’t understand, but an adult can. Same with his ornery sense of humor and suaveness. Honestly, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Damn, I think I have a crush on him all over again. And trust you me, this blog has been haunting me ever since I began watching MASH again. I had to write this excerpt. I hope I am forgiven.)

 

OMG, this guitar is infuriating. Most of the time I LOVE guitar, but not when it’s labeled “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” By the Beatles, and it turns out somebody just played a bunch of random guitar and labeled it that way. It sounds more like a massacre rather than a gentle weep.

Then later that day I had to deal with a lady inflicted with mild Alzheimer’s and that, I guarantee you, is ALWAYS random. You’ve not known random until you’ve known someone with that disease, in the beginning-mid stages especially.  I found my mind bombarded with everything from silverware to beads to trees and ladders and rhubarb dream bars. It was unsettling.

I suppose I’m still in a random mood, not quite having recovered from hitting my back on the edge of a metal container holding a fire extinguisher while trying to soap down a painted wooden tree, and shake dust off spray painted pine cones while battling plastic canvas reindeer for the title of “dustiest figurine in the hallway”. I think by the end of that endeavor, I had won.

What television shows are good for during sleepless nights.

1. Rosanne- good for hardcore exercising. The main character alone is enough to get you off your lazy ass and scare you into shaping up.

2. I Love Lucy- good for laughs, reminiscence and realizing that women really were treated like crap in the 40’s. (And day dreaming about Desi Arnaz, of course.)

3. Hot In Cleveland- good for reaffirmation that Betty White is one of the most awesome women in existence, good laughs, and remembering that you actually like the other ladies playing in the show too.

4. Three’s Company- good for reminiscing about the good ol’ days when TV Land used to play shows that weren’t new when I was little, and also, oh yeah, that I had a crush on John Ritter as a little girl, too.

Who didn’t?? RIP 😦

Anyway, this post wasn’t nearly as random as I’d wanted, disincluding popcorn and rabbits and easter bunny copulation and sewer gas. However, I hope it sufficed to bring upon some sort of entertainment, as it was quite entertaining to my mind. (Mostly, pictures #2, 6 and 7)

Have a good random night, and have random good dreams!!!

“Making my most important decisions since 1989”

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

This blog is about IT. What does it stand for?

I know what IT stands for (Information Technology) but I only know this because I’m lucky enough to know some IT guys. No, I don’t really KNOW know them which is why I’m writing this blog.

They’re awesome people, and I say this with zero sarcasm, I truly mean it. My father is an IT guy, for instance. I have friends who are IT guys (or gals) but the topic is just one that eludes me and it’s got to be more simple than I can see.

On the outside, they’re aloof, they’re elusive, with faces of stone-solid composure and impeccable manners. Inside, they are a world of information, scrolling through words of which I’ll understand very little in my lifetime, speaking and thinking in binary and confusing the rest of the world with their latent ability to create things on a computer we didn’t even know a computer could do.

It’s amazing. What fascinates me the most is the fact that as elusive as they are, with that composure and emanating “introvert” and “shyness” they really are no such thing. The right topic just needs to come up. When the topic hits computers, I don’t think I’ve seen a more extrovert person in my entire life. Of course, I don’t understand a damn thing they’re saying, but honestly that doesn’t seem to matter to them.

Introduce an actual computer into the conversation, or allow them access to yours, they will actually… giggle.
The above picture symbolizes the average person’s ability to make their computer do what they want it to do. An IT guy doesn’t need a gun, coercion, or inhuman frustration- they type in a few things and…
Well not always is it magic, there can and sometimes will be a few curse words involved, but eventually the computer just somehow… works.
I often believe that computers were invented to make our lives more frustrating and to increase the suicide rate within our society. But not, and I repeat, NOT if you have an IT guy around. As long as you don’t try having a conversation with them about anything NOT regarding computers, they’re fantastically open people.
Things they may say might include:
<P>
  <ABBR title="World Wide Web">WWW</ABBR>
  <ABBR lang="fr"
        title="Soci&eacute;t&eacute; Nationale des Chemins de Fer">
     SNCF
  </ABBR>
  <ABBR lang="es" title="Do&ntilde;a">Do&ntilde;a</ABBR>
  <ABBR title="Abbreviation">abbr.</ABBR>

So a gentle reminder that you only speak layman's terms may be
necessary in order to continue a conversation, but as long as 
you're catching on to at least 30% of what they say, 
they're ok with it.



See, I can't even figure out how to get my text 
back to normal after copying and pasting the above 
HTML for effect. It's stuck in HTML mode. I need an IT guy.

For those who are IT and reading this, here's kind 
of an idea why your audience tends to blank out 
when you speak:

This is what I hear and what I see, and I am somewhat 
technologically literate. (As this post does NOT prove.)



Or perhaps this:



And the more you talk, 
the more I see you as this:



So don't be offended if I suddenly start looking a 
bit euphoric and find me smiling and nodding. 
I do follow along with some of what you say, 
but I am visually and language minded so it is 
simply that I am attempting to turn what you say into 
pictures and a new language in my mind... 
and it isn't working. 

So in essence, I AM feeling a bit
euphoric because suddenly I'm thrown into 
this world of words that have no meaning to me, 
and I'm fairly certain never will.

And don't be offended if SHOWING us 
laymens what you're talking about
on the computer isn't going to help.

Though if it helps you to know, I will complicate 
matters by admitting when
I haven't followed along enough to 
understand that essential 30%. As
a matter of fact, you know what?

Let's skip the complications.

Just show me what buttons to push.

 

By the way, you IT guys are awesome! 
Keep up the good work
doing things we will never understand to make our lives
function in a way that we'll never quite compute.

(So why did the HTML stop after I hit the fake binary 1’s and 0’s??? By the way, I use the term “technologically literate” in a loose way, just so you know.)

IT people are going to scream when they read this blog.
