Suddenly it all makes sense

I'm sure everyone has already done the "Kathy {insert your name here} needs" game that's flying around on Facebook. You know, the one where you type your first name + needs into google and then hit search... and then record the first 7 things google generates... Just for the heck of it I thought I'd give it a whirl. I had no intention of actually doing anything with it until I saw what it pulled. Apparently this is what Kathy needs:

To give herself some credit - Really. How much more credit should I take? I changed the name of the blog to the world according to me for pity sake. I'm not sure how much more obnoxiously self-centered I could be, but hey, who am I to argue with Google?

More attention - My name is KathyB! and I'm an attention whore junkie. I can control myself in the real world, but in the world according to me? There is never such a thing as too much.

To be back on the red - Interesting. I switched to white wine last week when the weather became crazy-warm. I guess I was premature. Back to the Cabernet...

Candy bars - That's a great start. Cookies, cakes, pies, ice cream? Bring it! Just let me know when this dessert-a-palooza is going to happen so that I can fast in anticipation. Ever since I put on 60 pounds gestating the twins my metabolism has been just a tad slow. Actually I don't think slow quite sums it up. More like, if-I-so-much-as-glance-sideways-at-a-kidney-bean-I-put-on-a-pound. Much more accurate.

A comb - Is it weird that I did the Google search after I popped out of the shower? Did I mention that I hadn't brushed my hair yet and that it was sprouting out from my scalp at weird angles? Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do... That was supposed to sound like the Twilight Zone music. Personally, all that doo-doo makes me feel like I have to go to the bathroom.

Love - I think this means comment love. Yesterday 300 people traipsed through here and I appreciate that you wiped your feet before you came in and I'm thrilled that you cleared your plate and put it in the dishwasher but...

To get off the D - list - Wow! I didn't even know I warranted inclusion on a list. Yay me!! I guess if I'm off the D-list then I might as well be gunning for Dooce. Watch your back sister!!

And then I started thinking that I should have googled "what KathyB! needs." For all intents and purposes that's who I am here, right? I gave it a whirl and it only pulled up one result that was different from the original Kathy search, and it was HUGE.

According to Barack Obama the change we need is KathyB!
.
Really, that's exactly what it said!! I can only assume this is what Google was thinking when it said I need to give myself more credit, more attention... maybe they meant that I needed to be on the red carpet... and clearly politics would propel me off of the D-List... The search wasn't completely clear the first time because I'd forgotten to search my true name.

Suddenly it all makes sense.

KathyB! for president anyone?

Kathy B 2012! I'll start campaigning right now.

Juls said...

Those were positively amazing... Maybe I should do that too...I'm putting it on my "to do" list...nevermind the fact that my "to do" list is about a bazillion miles long... Oh, by the way-I totally get you on the "alot of traffic" but nothing in the tip jar... I get that a lot too..makes you wonder what people are thinking...

resplendentlife said...

You have my vote Kathy B!!!

D said...

Wow. That's great. Now I want to know what D needs.

Gibby said...

That is so funny!
I was nervous to do that game because I am not sure if I truly want to know what I need. Maybe I should.

And even though most people aren't spreading the love, at least you HAVE 300 readers. You go, girl!!

Off to google...

daisigirl said...

I swear, I am the last one to know about everything! If you need a girl in-the-know, I am not her! I have never heard of this but I am now going to go right on there and check it out! :)

Becca said...

I have yet to see this on facebook but I think that perhaps I gave it a shot and it said I need to be stealing things again! I am too honest for this need. Unless it is kisses. From here it only gets better. I need to learn to move on which could be true. I do get caught up in the silly stuff and stay there for a while. Next a vacation... I SO need one of those! This is cute. I am going to go and finish it up!

Debbie said...

My heavens woman! You are much more famous than I realized. If you become prez, can I be your official blogger or have some other cabinet post? We can talk money later:)

Donnetta said...

With the doo doo, maybe your slogan should be "Kathy B. Needs to go Pee!"

Found you through Brandy! Going to check out your Britney song!

countryfriedmama said...

I did this with my real name and got pretty boring results. "Mama needs..." was far more interesting.

Mama needs a kidney.
Mama needs to get out of the home office.
Mama needs a book deal.

forever folding laundry said...

When I did that it said I needed bigger boobs so I had to stop right there. I've always known Google was creepy, but that confirmed it. =)

Hillbilly Duhn said...

I almost spit my tea all over the screen when you said dodododod made you think of using the bathroom...lmao...

I want to be president...you can't be president. Oh, wait, we already had a hillbilly in office and he didn't do so good. Ah well... never mind then.

Guess I'll vote for you!

MadMad said...

Thanks for coming by, and for your kind words! I'm off to Google myself, now. Do I have to stop at 9, though? I have a feeling that 9 won't be enough to fix me...

Kristina P. said...

If I had it to do all over again, I never would have named my blog what it is now. It would be called "My Life on the Z List." Way down at the bottom.

ck said...

Now, did that search include the infamous ! after the B?

Seeker said...

You go girl....being Canadian, I can't vote. But just having won an election myself, I am willing to campaign for you.

The Blonde Duck said...

I'll vote for you!

~Thought's By Dena~ said...

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do is that and the "d" list one in the same??? hehe and Im so excited I cant wait finally I know exactly who to vote for!!! YAY!!!!

faemom said...

First off, I'd vote for you, even though you kicked me off my spot on the hottest blogs. Oh, I'm not bitter or jealous, just trying to find the right curse. J/k As long as it's you or ck, I don't mind, but I'm a bit competative.

Second, I'm cursed with a name that sounds romantic and sexy, so you can just imagine what I pulled up. Thanks for reminding me that my name is not of a porn stars, just enough to make people think about sex.

Mary K Brennan said...

Need you ask for my vote? You had me at Hello! I can't think of a better Mommy to take the job.

ScoMan said...

I remember doing this a few years ago. It was fun! I might do it again one day soon for the benefit of my blog readers.

You got some great ones! =D

Yaya said...

I love these!

Especially the wine one! ;)

Minxy Mimi said...

Oh My!!!
I love this idea,
I am gonna steal it and link to ya!
I hope I need candy too, then I have an excuse to stop at the store tonight on the way homw!

Jen said...

makes perfect sense.

Ink said...

*You* are the change! I'm so relieved...everyone has been looking for you...whew!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

KathyB for Prez!

You'll have to friend me on FB.

Susie said...

That's always an entertaining exercise.

Sturgmom said...

The D-List! WOW! I'm pretty sure if I'm on any list, it's some list that's titled using some obscure foreign language alphabet.

daisigirl said...

You are so funny! I listen to the 80's station on my satellite radio with my kids and I sometimes forget just what some of those lovely lyrics are and I have to turn down the volume quick-like! :)

Helene said...

Hey, I'd vote for ya!!! I still haven't tried the google thing...maybe I need to and see what it comes up with!!

Okay, am I just seeing things or does the date on everyone's comment above say "11/3/09". Why is the date backwards? Or is it really Nov 3, 2009 and I missed out on 7 whole months of my life?

K said...

I've seen a couple of these posted around the blogworld - but this is the best one by far.

You totally need to get off the D list! Even the President agrees.

3 Bay B Chicks said...

I see very great things in your future, Kathy B! Why stop at the presidency, though? Shouldn't you instead just be something like Supreme Ruler of Everything?

-Francesca

evenshine said...

Well, since Barack did it with almost no experience, why not KB? You'd be great- just make sure you stay away from sex ed laws! Oh, and stem cell research. :)
And what are you talking about with comments? You always have TONS of comment love!

Carina Gardner said...

I haven't gotten around to this one! I'll have to look for it on facebook!

blueviolet said...

We all want it to be all about us but you're the only one cool enough to admit it and put it in your blog title. ;)

CynthiaK said...

Hilarious! OK, you've convinced me to do the game. I'll hopefully post it tomorrow. Too funny!!

Restless Housewife said...

So THAT'S what that FB thing was all about - I do my best to "glance" through my page and "overlook" FB games and such...but now I'm interested. That's amazing those came up when you did that! Wow - "the change we need is KathyB"?! That does have a ring to it:-)!

Grand Pooba said...

I'd totally vote for you!

Nana said...

I'm with Pooba. I am going to check it out and see what I need.

forever folding laundry said...

Just had to come over and thank you for the nice compliments! You're too kind. =)

And, for the record, I think you're one of the most clever, funny bloggers out there!
