Things I’ve Googled

Oh gosh, it’s Friday. ALREADY. That means Sunday is just two days away which is only a big deal because as you know, Sunday is race day and I’m all butterflies over here. Hopefully they will help me flutter across the finish line in one piece. Have you heard about the recent SINK HOLES?! I guess that’s one more thing motivating me to keep up the pace. Think good thoughts for me and if you’re up for a laugh, follow me on Snapchat (RecoveringCorp) for some prime Bay to Breakers coverage.

Here’s the latest rundown of Things I’ve Googled.

How old is Jenna Lyons?
I caught the snapshot of her, Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham at the Met Gala and it piqued my curiosity. It probably goes without saying, I love the Creative Director of J.Crew. And I fell in love with her even more after reading her thoughts on aging. “I joke all the time that I’m old and I’m getting older and I feel it, so I guess I would rather talk about it with a smile and say, ‘Oh God, I’m old!’ than spend all my time at the dermatologist. I approach ageing with ice cream and a martini.” (Vogue) Brilliant woman. And I would have never guessed she is 47.

Magna tile creations
My best friend’s sons gave Harper her first set of magnet tiles for her birthday and we’re completely obsessed with them. I can’t wait to get her a few more so we can keep building. As we were picking up the playroom the other night, Jim actually joked that we should get rid of all of her toys except the magnet tiles. I googled this just to see some of the cool stuff other people have built. Like this.

Who sings the Stella and Sam theme song?
The girls found a new favorite show on Hulu and it’s actually really cute. Stella encourages her little brother’s imagination with adventures outside. Their dog, Fred is along for the fun, too. Sam’s little voice has admittedly made me laugh a few times. The intro song is catchy and the singer sounded familiar. It’s Emilie Mover, a Canadian singer-songwriter and her music (outside of the theme song) is lovely.

Why do we do the “concentration tongue”
You know, when you are lifting something heavy or trying to hold your balance and not drop something? I see it all the time with the girls and I think it’s adorable on them. But why do we do it? “This is caused by interference from the two activities fighting for the same bit of brain to process them. By biting your lip or sticking your tongue out, you are suspending motor activity and keeping your head rigid, to minimise movement and hence interference.” (Google)

What to eat before running a 12k
You know why. “Try and consume some complex carbohydrates.” Done.


Things I’ve Googled is an ongoing series and comes from one of the standard questions Jim and I ask each other when we get home. Often, it’s a good indicator of where our minds have wandered off to in the middle of the day and the topics usually make us laugh. So consider this part educational. Part oversharing. Part nonsense. Completely random.
