So I’m all about things that make life easier for me– and this is my newest one. I discovered iGoogle this week and OH MY WORD am I never going back to life without it! My obsession with waiting for a certain email from a certain city on the East Coast has led me to a whole new level of checking email, like, every other minute. Enter iGoogle.
It has these cute little widgets that update themselves to let you know when you have a new email, a new post on your blogroll or some breaking news. It’s so much nicer to use during work because it doesn’t so much look like I’m obsessively checking email. Not to mention, the Google search bar is right there front and center, which I can tell you is the thing I use the most at the daycare. Who knew I’d ever have to find information on “children who bite” or “lesson plans for preschool on camping” but never fear– Google can find something fabulous for me. And did I say it was cute? The themes just make me happy.
And my all-time favorite unecessary widget: Bush Quote Generator. HOLY COW! How in the world did this buffaoon become our President? Here are a few of my favorite quotes:
“I glance at the headlines, just to get kind of a flavor,” he told Brit Hume of Fox News last month (2003). But, “I rarely read the stories” because “a lot of times there’s opinions mixed in with news.” Link to story
“I think he needs to stand up and say if he thought the president were wrong on policy and issues, he ought to say where.”
