Obligatory Googlism

The voice of my mother still rings in my ears, even if she never said precisely this: "If everybody else goes to Googlism, are you going to go too?" Like I'm gonna jump into the reservoir or something.

I expected a whole lot of stuff to come up, inasmuch as I have one of the more common names around and some of the people bearing it, unlike me, have actually accomplished things. And I was not disappointed. This is the list, unedited:

I did mine yesterday and there were only two in the list. How depressing!

How does that silly thing work anyway?

Worse, I apparently wrote one of them. (I don't think anyone else has come up with the term "fiskatorial", or would want to have.)

There are people I know, including the mysterious She Who Is Not To Be Named, who have no entries at all.

Ah, but did Charles *G* Hill do any of those things? And why hasn't he contacted Ms. Nomer, who now has a small child and is moving to Enid? Fearless minds tread upon these questions much as a caged tiger treads upon grapes of wrath. Or some such.

Ah, but did Charles *G* Hill do any of these things? And why hasn't he contacted Ms. Nomer who now has a small daughter and who is moving to Enid? Fearless and feckless minds restlessly tread upon these questions much as a restless tiger in a small cage treads upon the body of the caretaker who, at mealtime, mistakenly tossed himself into the cage rather than the meat.

Alas, this program gave me an error message which caused me to believe that I had to retype my message but then LAUGHED at my naivte when BOTH messages appeared. I can hear it screaming NYAH NYAH FOOLED YOU. Well, I don't care. I don't care, you see. I'm immune to software practical jokes; I'm holding my head high. See, up goes my nose into the air to let you know how little I care. Again, I raise my child upward, and, again, upward, ahd afutubm yowatds,,,

Yeah, that's easy for you to say.

There are, in general, two responses to hitting the Post button twice: write the blogger and ask, pretty please, can you delete one of these, or make fun of the second one and go for three. I know which one I prefer.

I don't know which of these revelations is the more surprising: "small daughter" or "moving to Enid".
