I've been meme'd - what hell hath I wrought?
Holy lack of onomatopoeia, Batman!

Betcha didn't know I was such a good Eugooglimagizer

This is another interesting blog that wasn't sent to me, but after reading it on a couple other sites, I wanted to do it anyway.

It's called Googlimage and the point of it is that you are supposed to answer ten questions and type those answers into the Google image search engine.  Then you compile the resultant images together for all to see.  I used Photoshop to come up with my nice little image bar.

Here are the questions...

  1. Where did you grow up?
  2. Where do you live now?
  3. What is your name?
  4. What is your grandmother's name?
  5. What is your favorite food?
  6. What is your favorite drink?
  7. What is your favorite song?
  8. What is your favorite smell?
  9. What is your favorite shoes?
  10. What is your favorite number?

Here are the images I came up with...

And now the reasons behind these photos (as best I can figure them out)...

  1. That is the city hall in Rochester, N.Y., where I was born.
  2. Ironically enough, not only is this a building in Geneva, Ill., where I now live, but it is the library that I frequent.
  3. Two Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon minimates figurines that I reviewed for a friend's toy review website are what came up when I Googled my first and last name.  Go fig (no pun intended).
  4. Apparently, my grandmother (Katherine Kurtz) is the author of several fantasy/sci-fi novels.  I had no idea... You holdin' out on me, Nano?
  5. Mac and cheese, baby!
  6. I searched for a "black and tan" as my favorite drink and I got a black and tan Jack Russell Terrier.  Cute little bugger, though, ain't he?
  7. "Gypsy Road" (by Cinderella) was one of the only songs I could think of at the moment and this is a shot of what is known as Gypsy Road at Wind Cave National Park.
  8. I can't explain why, but I am always relaxed by the smell of my wife's powder fresh deodorant, so I looked up "powder fresh" and actually got an image of my wife's brand of deodorant, no less.
  9. My Skechers Critics in black nubuck.  I love these shoes.
  10. The number five a la The Ten Things You Didn't Know About the World Bank.  Ummm... okay.

This is a really fun exercise.  No, you don't have to go and compile the images the way that I did.  But answer the questions and search for them.  It's pretty interesting.
