Dave!I had seen the "Google Image Meme" someplace, then promptly forgot about it. But then whilst catching up on my blog-reading this weekend, I ran across it again at Chronic Listaholic, and decided to give it a go. It was supposed to be for Sunday, but I ended up having something to write about, and put it off until now.

How it works is this... you are given ten questions, and then have to enter your answer into Google Images to see what comes up for each one. You can either take the first hit, pick a favorite, or however you want to do it so that your answer ends up being a picture...

Google Image

  1. The place you grew up. Cashmere, Washington. I selected a photo of downtown that had a pickup truck and a bunch of flags in the shot, because that pretty much sums it up.
  2. The place you live now. Same place, so I used the same photo.
  3. Your name. Despite having a pretty good Google Index, my full name does not result in any photos of me popping up (I suppose I should be relieved?). When I simply enter "Dave" I still don't show but, oddly enough, my friend Dave does show up, so he gets his picture here.
  4. Your grandmother's name. Despite the fact that my grandmother's name is not "Marilyn Monroe," that's the photo that comes up. Odd.
  5. Your favorite food. This is such a toss-up, but I'd have to say the top-three are "Pasta Salvi" (from Salvi's Bistro in Columbus, Ohio), The Da Vinci Pizza (from David's Pizza in Spokane, Washington), and the ORIGINAL Fettucini Alfredo (ONLY from Alfredo alla Scrofa in Rome, Italy).
  6. Your favorite drink. It's usually Italian hot chocolate, but given that it's summer time, I chose my current obsession... Coke with Lime.
  7. Your favorite song. Would be something by Depeche Mode. But since I didn't want to spend hours trying to narrow it down to a short list, I just picked my current fave song... Everything's Changing by Keane. This is a photo of the lead singer, I think.
  8. Your favorite smell. Always grandma's apple pie.
  9. Your favorite shoes. Despite being made in a sweat-shop somewhere, my Nike ACG Boots remain my favorite pair of shoes ever. Unfortunately, my favorite fave model has long-since been discontinued, so these are a different pair of Nike ACG boots.
  10. Your favorite number. Four. Which is considered hugely bad luck throughout most of Asia. For reason's unknown, this really cool stealth bomber SR-71 Blackbird shot comes up when I type "4" into Google Images.

And there you have it... a cool meme to fill up space in your blog!

    Oh yum. That pasta sounds to die for. And I’m pleased to report 30 seconds ago I took my first sip of Coke w/ Lime. SO far so good.

  2. kazza says:

    Except the last picture is of an SR-71 which was high altitude photograph reconnaissance
    plane, not a bomber 🙂

  3. Michelle says:

    That sounds like a really cool idea for a meme. When did Keane go over to America?! They’re great, that is the lead singer you’ve got there – Tom – he’d dead cute =D Have you guys heard of Snow Patrol yet?

  4. kazza says:

    I have a photo of cashmere like that, altho mine doesn’t have the mountain in the background 🙁

  5. Dave2 says:

    Coke with Lime: it’s a good thing!

    Keane has been around for a while here… I think that they became popular when a bunch of television shows started using their music. One of my favorite shows, Grey’s Anatomy, had “Somewhere Only We Know” which is how I heard of them. I have indeed heard of Snow Patrol… they had a few hits here a while back.

    Oops. Sorry about that… I can’t seem to keep my spy planes separate from my stealth bombers! Though it would make a cool stealth bomber though, wouldn’t it?

  6. kazza says:

    It would 🙂 I love that plane. There’s a slightly different version of it in the museum of flight in Seattle.

  7. SJ says:

    Jeez, spend one day in bed with a box of Godiva and A Stroke Of Midnight, and look what happens: I missed your entry in my favorite meme! Good thing I Googled myself today, huh?

    Thanks for propagating this meme as a list of ten, Dave. Ten rules.
