Google Doodles

Now that the Olympic games are on I barely get any work done! And no, it's not because I'm solely watching the Olympics, it's because I can't stop playing with my doodles!

Er, you know, the Google doodles? 

Anyway, Google has been pulling out all of the stops with interactive doodles of some of the most popular sports and competitions. While there has been a bit of controversy in the mix over some of the imagery, I can sit and play a doodle for hours! If you're in the mood to play some or catch up on some of the classic Google doodles, just head on over to the interactive siteHave fun! 

P.S. There's an awesome classic I Love Lucy doodle with hilarious footage from the lovely comedienne for her 100th birthday. Check it out here.


I know I may be a little late to the party, but SHAZAM!!! 

As in the cool app for my android smart phone that can listen to a sample of a mysterious piece of music and then give me the artist, title and a colorful little CD cover preview.

Now, if you're up on your comic book trivia, then you know that Shazam was also a wizard whose name was an acronym for six ancient heroes that could be called on to access powers with certain attributes. I don't know about you, but I feel pretty badass when I know the name of a song that no one else in the room knows. ;)

S The wisdom of Solomon;
H The strength of Hercules;
A The stamina of Atlas;
Z The power of Zeus;
A The courage of Achilles;
M The speed of Mercury.
