Dear Google

Dear Google,

I know it's early for their release, but I am desperately in need of your two new applications, Google House and Google Car. You see, I cannot locate my university ID, and while it is a mostly useless object, right now I need it. I can't figure out where it is but I'm pretty sure it's in my house or my car. I'm thinking that since Google can find anything, if I could just google search those places it would solve my problem.

Thank you.

Oh how lovely that would be....

If my theory holds, merely blogging the lost means it will show up (and have been right in front of your face) within 24-48 hours. Sometimes just 24-48 minutes.

Good luck finding it!

Between you and FSP, I'm going to bed laughing tonight. Thanks!

I'd like Google Backpack because I keep loosing things at the bottom. Awesome.

You can't find your ID, and you expect us to believe that you are an effective researcher and even want to be a faculty member!? Aha ha ha ha ha ha!

How do you expect to do work on the weekends, huh? Better quit and go into industry right now, scatterbrain. Move over and let the better organized take over. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

(This thing is anonymous, right?)

This weekend I tried to google my lost memories from a particularly "fun" party...when's that technological Omega point gonna get here?

Yay, I want that too!

Also, could yopu use your majic powers to persuade them to produce Google Department? It would be so great to be able to search for 'where is Dr Neverhere' or 'Where is [really useful hard to get book that I loaned to a grad student so that they could copy a chapter but that hasn't been returned yet]' - or Google Office so I could type in 'where have all the black pens gone?'

profgrrrl, you're the one who inspired me. And as usual, it worked: found it this morning.

Very mysterious, this process of querying the universe by way of the internet. I love it.

Thank you, Google Car.

anon 9:21 AM,

I should think being scatterbrained would QUALIFY me for academia, not disqualify me.

And yeah, I found it, so there. nyeah-nyeah!


I do wish I could Google my memory. I try to do it in my sleep.


Do you really want Dr. Neverhere to come back? I'd prefer that the one in our department would stay lost.

Sadly Dr Neverhere is also the person who has to sign off research grant applications and purchases over a very small sum of money... e.g. is our Head of Department. So I'd like to find his SIGNATURE at least!

my memory/brain needs a good old fashion defrag. i'm afraid a googling would cause a crash. some days, i feel like i've got just enough available ram to be minimally functional.

I've wished for this on many occasions, as well as the Google Brain.
