Okay, so let's say you are a working mom and you are right in the middle of the holiday season and taking a vacation.
But then your daughter's 3rd birthday arrives and dang it, you want to have a little party and do something special.
Bake a cake from scratch? Yeah, right. Not at this time of year.
So, then you remember seeing something about the "Cake Mix Doctor" or such on the Today Show last summer and you do a quick search on Google.
You find this cool and easy recipe
and your worries are solved! A creative, home-baked cake that will impress everyone!
Kind of Freaky
Twice in two weeks I've gotten an email from a "long lost" friend who looked me up by Googling me.
The latest guy to contact me was from my freshman year in college (oh, just 20 years ago almost). Wild! Of course I remember him, but was totally flattered that he remembered me and a few details about where I was from, what my dad did, etc.
But, then again, I am guilty of "googling" long lost folks during my lunch hours, so I guess I shouldn't be too shocked.
The only downside of this kind of search is that sometimes you regret what you find. In one case, I googled an old friend from junior high school and discovered that there is a website detailing some of her personal and criminal activities that I really wish I didn't know about.
My careers (both freelance and full-time) tend to put my name "out there" on websites, and since I didn't change my name after marriage, I guess I'm "fair game."
The Internet is a wild, freaky thing sometimes.
