Remember TGIF? Damn I miss those shows. I don’t even remember what all I watched, but they were the best.  Well, I hope you all have awesome plans for the wkend! Personally, I’m hosting pre-gaming at my apt tonight (Anti-Work themed) followed by bartime.  Ah, I can just taste the whiskey now. mmmmm….  But since we have to while away the day yet, check out the meme below.


After reading about Brookem’s sordid past singing Cher karaoke, I had to try out this short Google meme myself. Especially since it teaches you so much about people. Did you know Brookem eats babies? I sure didn’t. No sirree!

If you try the meme, comment here so I know to come read yours!


Q1: Type in “[your name] needs” in the Google search.
Grace needs an orgasm.

Wow. Uh thanks? That’s a bit personal. Maybe we ought to keep that stuff to ourselves?

Q2: Type in “[your name] looks like” in Google search.
Grace looks like a pretty tough cookie and carries a gun on her hip.

Yea that’s right. Back off all of your or I’ll go all Lara Croft on your asses.

Q3: Type in “[your name] says” in Google search.
Grace says, “I talk, you listen… and leave me comments.”

That’s right. You listen. Just remember who has the gun here, ok?

Q4: Type in “[your name] wants” in Google search.
Grace wants your Danish goodies.

We’re gonna have to interpret that as treasure. Danish treasure. It fits the gun-wielding Lara Croft theme, and the idea of goodies (Ciara style) makes me slightly uncomfortable.

Q5:Type in “[your name] does” in Google search.
Grace does Audrey. *tries to*

Uh wow. So apparently I’m experiementing a bit? And failing in the attempt?

Q6: Type in “[your name] hates” in Google search.
Grace hates Halloween.

What?! No Way! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! You can dress up as random shit, get free candy (or drunk, depends on your age), and ever since I was a kid my dad would go all out with the decorations – including projecting the film Young Frankenstein on the big window in the foyer. All the neighborhood kids would take breaks from collecting candy to sit on our front lawn to watch the movie. The only better holiday: St. Paddy’s Day!

Q7: Type in “[your name] asks” in Google search.
Grace asks to go pee-pee.

Reverting to my 4yr old self.

Q8: Type in “[your name] likes ” in Google search.
Grace likes trees!!!

A lot apparently. Sure, I like ’em. Afterall, I’m allergic to at least 12 varieties and have fallen out of 3 different ones. Yea. we’ll go with that.

Q9: Type in “[your name] eats ” in Google search.
Grace eats fire.

A new undiscovered talent! Woot! And here I was concerned in high school because I couldn’t sing. Who cares?! I can eat FIRE. Screw work. I need to go back to high school and be popular.

Q10: Type in “[your name] wears ” in Google search.
Grace wears an orange jumpsuit well.

Yes. Yes I do. Thank you. Have you been looking at my facebook pictures? I did indeed where a prison orange jumpsuit when I went skydiving after graduation. (Google, I’m concerned about your facestalking. It’s a little creepy.)

Q11: Type in “[your name] was arrested for” in Google Search.
Grace was arrested for using duct tape on kids.

I’m concerned the path this meme is taking. Child abuse? Orange jumpsuits? Guns?

Q12: Type in “[your name] loves” in Google Search.
Grace loves her jeeps.

Rabbit. You mean my VW Rabbit. Although, Jeeps do look fun to drive. But no, I would never cheat on my Rabbit.


woot. meme.
