This section of the blog is called Thank God for Google. I couldn’t live without Google. I love Google. Most of what I know, I learned from Google. Here’s what I searched this week and why:
- “moms spaghetti remix” – Okay. Ya know the Eminem song “Lose Yourself”? Ya know the part where he raps “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy/there’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti”? Well. There’s a remix version of that song where every line ends with “mom’s spaghetti.” It’s amazing and you need to listen to it ASAP if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Anyway, the song came on the radio this week when I was in the car with my friend and I started singing the “mom’s spaghetti” version and she had no idea what I was talking about. Hence, the Google.
- “Nancy Clutter” – I have a book review coming on this, but I’m currently reading In Cold Blood, by Truman Capote. It’s been on my To Read list since I was in college, and I finally got to it this month. I want to save the details for its own post, but the book is a true-crime account of the Clutter family murders that occurred in Kansas in 1959. It chronicles the family’s last day on Earth all the way down to the execution of their murderers. The book is so eloquently and beautifully written, it’s very easy to forget that this is an account of true events. Nancy Clutter, the daughter who was murdered, was described as a sweet, intelligent, and beautiful girl, and I wanted to know what she looked like.
- “key and peele I said bitch” – Another video you need to watch, if you have no idea what this refers to. It’s a sketch from “Key & Peele” on Comedy Central. I needed to show a co-worker who had no idea what I was referencing. Seems to be a pattern that no one has any idea what I’m talking about…
- “luck” – If you’re a nerd like me, this one is interesting. A friend and I were discussing the meaning of the word “luck.” When we refer to “luck,” isn’t it a positive word. If I say you’re lucky, isn’t the implication that I’m saying you have good luck? So why do we say, “good luck”? Isn’t that a redundant phrase? We needed to check the official definition in order to verify the argument, so off we went to Google. According to the Merriam Webster definition, it is a redundant phrase!
