Whenever I want a definition, an answer, or a tutorial, I Google it. That adds up to a dozen or more searches a day, which begs the question: who does Google think I am?
Judging from my search history for the last 2 days, I'm a bad speller who knows little to nothing about technology, cleans up lots of messes, and is possibly schizophrenic.
Here's the raw, unedited list of 2 days of Googling, starting with the most recent. I omitted all the searches that were obviously performed by Phillip like 'mavrik gimbal driver' and 'how to make a lithium battery.' (I don't even want to know what's he's up to.)
- remove set in vaseline stains (the baby had a sensory playdate with a tub of petroleum jelly yesterday morning)
- how to remove vaseline from fabric
- how many cups in a galon ('gallon' spelled wrong, guess I type too fast)
- homemade laundry detergent
- is tanner patrick mormon
- veluptuous (don't get the wrong idea, I was writing the word 'voluptuous' and couldn't figure out how to spell it)
- ari rees lds living (awesome mormon blogger at I Go By Ari)
- independent movie philip writer ( my 3-year-old accidentally played a trailer on the iPad for an amusing-looking indie movie called Listen Up Philip, which I wanted to find again to show my Phillip)
- how do i post to fb page with a hyperlinked work (meant to type 'word')
- word count
- gluten free pie crust (shhh, don't tell Phillip — it's a surprise)
- em dash
- how do i put a link with picture on twitter (if you are a social media platform, I know nothing about you)
- brain chemistry volunteering makes us happy
- mac and cheese recipe (looking for a recipe that didn't involve the freakishly-colored powder we affectionately call "the yellow death")
- kids movies 2015
- how to pronounce rummikub
- cute girls hairstyles knotted braid (I love CGH)
- vietnam war (I'm reading a book that assumes I have a lot more knowledge of world history than I do)
- ho chi minh (ditto)
- plaintative (told you I'm the worst English major; through this search I learned that the word is actually 'plaintive')
- flickr creative commons
- women in refrigerators (again, probably not what you think; this is the name of a site about violence against female characters in comic books, which I read about in an article)
Frankly, I'm a little frightened to think that this is the picture Google (or anyone) has of me. But it is what it is.
