does it happen to you?

Did you ever Google something, find another interesting link there, follow that one to ANOTHER interesting link and suddenly discover, about an hour later, that you don't remember what you started searching for in the first place?

Good. I never do that, either.


That's never happed to me with Google, but it used to happen a lot when I was still using dead-tree versions of dictionaries and encyclopedias.

Good I'm glad I'm not the only one who never does that. The worst is when doing research for a paper or a post or something and realizing that you have no idea how you ended up on the site you're on.

Of course that never happens but I imagine that it would be a good way to waste time.

Well I got that one beat....

Ever burn the candle at both ends?

Ever accidentally light the house on fire while doing it? and have to run out front in your leopard mules, smeared in chocolate syrup and wax drippings, while wearing your Sharon Stone mask?

Me either.... I'm asking for a friend.

Is that like, "What did I get up and come in this room for?"

Nope. Me neither.

Posted by: Ernie G on July 26, 2005 11:18 AM thing to do is go back to where you last were (in the house) and stand there a moment.....look around, and think....(think about where you were headed and for what)

I am told it works wonders

Hell, that's how I ended up at this site in the first place so long ago!

Ohhh, Google! I first read goggle and couldn't figure why you would forget what you were goggling at. damn, getting blind as a bat or maybe just need reading lessons.

What Michele said. A coworker recently said that at the turn of the century butcher paper was made from the rags of Egyptian mummies. I called bullshit and got on google. A very strange journey ensued!

I had been coming to this site for a while but forgot about it. Today I was looking for an animated .gif of a monkey fucking a football and low and behold it brought me back here. Coincidence? I think not

umm... what was the question?

Posted by: bob on July 26, 2005 04:52 PM

I'm with Ernie. Problem is Ruth, half the time I forget which room I came from!

Posted by: Maeve on July 26, 2005 06:45 PM

I didn't do that twice today.

embaressed to reply to his answer and ask
for his blog address.......
