What Happens When a Bookfool Can't Sleep . . .

This is just so funny I had to share immediately. You've probably already seen this a million times, but there's this thing going around . . . where you type your name and the word "needs" into a Google window and hit "search". Have you seen it? Okay, I typed in "Bookfool" and it was soooo boring. Totally dull. So, I tried my real name and here's what I got:

1. Nancy needs to learn what the moon is. Honestly, I really do think I know what the moon is. It's cheese, right? A big wheel of cheese.

2. Nancy needs to check her own links. No comment.

3. Nancy needs help choosing a snake to breed. I'll just walk out the door and see what I can find. The last snake I saw was on my porch.

4. Nancy needs some vino photos. I should have just stopped at "vino", but either way it cracked me up.

5. Nancy needs prayer. Always true, I promise.

6. Nancy needs to find the stairs in Mattie Jensen's. (?)

7. Nancy needs to wake up. No, really, she needs to go to sleep.

8. Nancy needs to take a step back. Usually, that has to do with the fact that there's a snake on the porch. Okay, just kidding. I like this one.

I'm going to stop right there because #9 is about a loan and #10 . . . a boob job and I just don't think it can get any funnier.

I'm on #40 of my list of "100 Things About Me". It's getting harder every minute.

Hubby is back in communication. Wahoo! He sent me a picture of a very big, very toothy crocodile and says he didn't see a single snake. But, he didn't roam around in the desert; he stayed with other people. The croc was spotted on a boat ride.

Okay, off to get some shut-eye.


  1. That is too funny, Nancy! I'm afraid I can't offer you any suggestions on what snake to choose. Maybe a friendly one? ;-)

  2. This was a really snake-heavy post, wasn't it? :) Yeah, I'd go with non-venomous, if I really did want a snake. But, we'll just skip that.

  3. Those are great! I've done this one before too and got some pretty good results..I may have to do it again sometime soon :)

  4. It's pretty fun, isn't it? I don't recall seeing yours.

  5. I've never done that one before--very funny! Glad your hubby is back in communication, too :)

  6. Gentle Reader,

    It turned out a lot funnier than I expected!

    Thanks, I just got off the phone with hubby. He's now in Sydney and will be heading home, tomorrow (which means we'll go pick him up Tuesday evening, our time). Wahoo! I can't believe how much I've missed him. :)

  7. Oh, gee, thanks, Nancy. My first one was "CJ needs friends" and the second one was "CJ needs a laxative".

    I'm glad hubby is back in touch. But, isn't it interesting that you missed him as much as you did?

    And btw, you can keep your snakes.


  8. CJ,

    Thanks, I'm laughing, now. I particularly love the laxative. :)

    I was kind of stunned how awful it was being out of touch for days. Awful. I hated it. And, I think this trip was surprising in other good ways; every time my husband contacted me by webcam he was grinning like . . . well, like he was talking to his best friend. Now, if I can just get over the fact that I didn't get to go, all will be terrific.

    Fortunately, I really don't mind snakes a bit. It's the insect life that I hate.

    Eww, snakes. Funny list.

    Glad to hear your hubby is back in touch! And that's so sweet! You're his best friend. Even better than that!

    Now go get some sleep, girl.

  10. Carrie,

    I thought snakes were icky slimy things until our Natural Science Museum (in Jackson - back when it was a cute little museum; now it's huge) had somebody holding snakes and encouraging everyone to touch them. I was so shocked! It was firm and kind of soft, not slippery or yucky at all. And, then the cat brought one into the house. Fortunately, by then I'd bothered to learn the difference between venomous and non-venomous snakes, so it was no big deal. And, now I like them.

    I know. Weird.

    Isn't he sweet (the husband, not the snake)? I'll probably feel like that for exactly 1 hour, after he spreads his laundry from one end of the house to the other. But, I can reflect with joy.

    Okay, I'm off to take a bath and get some sleep. :)

  11. I tried this with me and I got linked up to all my actual links. It was sorta sad -- I want to know what I need.

  12. Hilarious, Nancy. I've gotta try this.... [and whoosh! there she goes, off to do exactly that!] *grin*

  13. Tristi,

    I guess you have an unusual name, eh? Maybe you could go with your initials and see what that does for you?


    I'm making a mad dash to your blog to see what you came up with. :)

  14. How funny! I've seen this a couple of times as a Thursday Thirteen topic, but I never thought to do it. I'm kind of afraid what I will come up with! But of course, I will anyway!

    Glad to hear your hubby will be home soon! I'd like to send mine out for awhile, but alas, he always comes back!! Just kidding! Really, I'm just kidding!

  15. Stephanie,

    I'll have to peek to see if you did this one. It can be really hilarious. I was glad I wasn't drinking when I read Donna's (cdnreader). :)

    I'm tossing on whether or not to be happy that my husband's returning. Right now, I'm kind of totally irked that he's just discovered how wonderful Australia is without me but I'm tired. Hopefully, I'll be friendly by the time he gets home. LOL

  16. Ha, I had this mental image of you wondering around Mattie Jensen's looking desperately for the stairs. I wonder what it means.

    Hard to sleep without the hubby, isn't it? I recommend Tylenol PM.

  17. Kookie,

    I'm definitely the kind of person who would get lost trying to find the stairs.

    The big sleep problem has to do with getting the kid to calm down. Once I've got him at least thinking about bed, I can pop an Ambien and I'm out. And, then, of course I have to get up and haul him to swim practice on 4 hours of sleep. He's zonked, right now. Remember the term "Dysfunctional Family Follies?" Ahem.

  18. Tara be in one place long enough to establish a trusting relationship with a good, interested, capable therapist.

    Oh my! These are hilarious.

  19. I love it! And, oddly, it seems to accurately describe someone else I know. LOL

  20. I've had the joys of snakes explained to me and held a few. I'm still not sold on them, but at least I don't run screaming from a garter snake anymore. OTOH, where I live, there are a ton of rattlers. Nothing like finding a rattler on your front porch before your morning coffee, hogging the newspaper.

  21. Carrie,

    I have a feeling that I'd learn to be a little more wary if I ever encountered a rattlesnake. So far, the only venomous snake I've run into was a copperhead. And, he was really minding his own business. Still, I'd rather not find one in my backyard. :) Yeah, I think holding them really does help.
