Thursday Thirteen #20

13 Things That "Wylie Needs"

I decided to try the "(insert your name here) needs" Google search. If Rhian did it, it must be cool, right? I cut and paste them exactly as they appeared on the search page, bold, caps and all.
As I was cutting and pasting, I thought - everyone's going to think I made these up. NO ONE will believe this is true...
It was extremely difficult to pare the list down to only 13, when I had so many interesting 'needs'. My witty responses follow ;)

  1. Wylie needs some SERIOUS help with something a lot of things, actually
  2. Wylie needs to come up so Sonia and I can prove we're not the same person. I still won't believe you
  3. Wylie needs additional retail opportunities so I love to shop, sue me
  4. Wylie needs it, Acme agrees to a guaranteed safety safety?! Is that what you told Wile E Coyote?
  5. Wylie needs anything at this time in our history, it’s a vision and the drive to make it happen. I gots plenty of vision! What I needs is a babysitter!
  6. Wylie needs more water safeguards because most accidents in the home happen in the bathroom
  7. Wylie needs to look no further than Kyle Farnsworth and Latroy Hawkins for what, exactly??
  8. Wylie needs to get laid. Um... thanks, but I'm good. I've got Kyle and Latroy
  9. Wylie needs £50 cheque though a few more zeros would be nice
  10. Wylie needs to, first and foremost, get healthy goes without saying
  11. Wylie needs to learn how to play I DO know how to play - - just not well with others
  12. Wylie needs food -- badly so what else is new?
  13. Wylie needs to get that immunity you mean Kyle and Latroy haven't been tested?!

The only thing missing is what I really need - a good night's sleep. What do YOU think I need?

LOL! I love that "Googley needs" thing -- it's so funny. Except I have such a weird name I only get one result, something about giants and vipers. Ha!

LMAO @ Kyle and Latroy!

Bless your heart, you still haven't gotten a good night's sleep? Arrgh! I hope you get one soon.

villageofmany said...

That's so funny! #4 cracks me up. #2 is pretty good too hehe

Thomma Lyn said...

GAH, forgot to say... Happy TT, my friend! (Google doesn't know this, but Thomma Lyn Needs a BRAIN... ;-D

Ctina said...

Very fun! I need to do one of these :)

Wylie Kinson said...

TL - Wylie NEEDS A BRAIN was one of the lines I deleted. Maybe I should have kept it in, but I figure it's common knowledge! (I'll send Kyle and LaTroy over to you when I'm done *wink*)

ctina - you should! I resisted for a long time, but in the end couldn't resist. And it seemed like an easy TT to throw together.

villageofmany - thanks for stopping by and happy TT!

Dewey said...

Now I'm dying to know who Kyle and Latroy are!

Christine said...

LOL! I was going to do this one week for TT. I had a good laugh over the ones that showed up.

Rashenbo said...

LOL! I love that google needs thing. I don't have nearly as many good items as you though :)

Nice to see you again. Thanks for the clever and fun list.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I am SO with you about vision and vacations! Oh, man... Let's dump our kids somewhere and take our laptops and run, shall we? We'll only come back when we hit the best-seller list and can afford a really spectacular nanny...

Happy TT, my friend!

Raggedy said...

Margaret said...

I should have saved my Google Needs for a T13. I bet you are a great multitasker. Great List and have a Happy Thursday. Friday's almost here. =O)

gabriella hewitt said...

I've got to try out this search. It cracks me up every time I read it. So what does Wylie really need? LOL!

Happy TT. Thanks for stopping by.

sasha said...

These are great information! I have never read that book but now you made me so curious I will look for it NOW so I can read later :)

Happy TT! Mine's up now :)

L^2 said...

LOL I have to do this. These lists always crack me up!

Thanks for visiting my TT. :-)

Candy Minx said...

These are hilarious. You were right, I DO think they sound made up it's hard to believe. This is really one of the best activities/games I''ve seen online. I love it!

Hope you have a great week end Wylie, and I hope some of your assessment of time management has worked out well for you.

Cheers,
Candy

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Okay, I've got to try this!!

Tempest Knight said...

*LMAO*

RED GARNIER said...

LOL, this is so funny!! I should try this next TT. =)

Nicholas said...

If you dont want the £50 cheque, please send it to me!

Christine said...

I love the treasure trove that google provides. I did this some time ago and couldn't believe the responses. Thanks for the giggles. Don't ya just love the names Kyle and Latroy.

Mine are up too! More images, art this time round.

Rebecca said...

If only those 'additional retail opportunies' came with the money to fund them!

Joy T. said...

This is too funny. I tried this and I have to say. I'm pretty darn boring. Great TT list!

Tink said...

I played this one last week. Yours is as hilarious as mine. ;-)
This week my TT shares 13 things about the blue moon.

Tilly Greene said...

Ahhh, what a hoot! I'm going to have to try this :-)

Miss Frou Frou said...

I did this last week, after seeing a few of them, including Rhian's. It was a hoot... as was yours.

This Eclectic Life said...

That's hilarious! I've seen the Googley thing but never tried it. Did you know you need so much??

Rene Lyons said...

Rene could use a check with a lot more zeroes as well. lol

Amanda Young said...

Lol-- that's a cute list. I'm going to have to steal your idea and do this one week. :)

Samantha Lucas said...

I did the needs thing and the first thing that came up was Samantha needs sex! No comment. lol

Amy Ruttan said...

I did that once and it said Amy needs to get that monkeysicle in for testing and what not. It also said something about me going to Orgeon. Weird.

Happy TT even though I'm not participating (swamped at the EDJ) I'm making the rounds.

Thanks again for the congrats. I hope it sells, I'll keep you posted.

Ann(ie) said...

I had fun with this meme. It's one of the few I actually enjoyed.

Angela/SciFiChick said...

Immunity?! Too funny!

julia said...

Loved your Kyle and Latroy comments!

impworks said...

A few years ago if you told someone you were going to google yourself you'd have risked getting arrested. Now people think nothing of it.

Nice list. Raised a smile :-)

TeaMouse said...

I like reading these 'need' lists, they are always good for a nice laugh and very surprising.

Lesley said...

"Lesley needs 2 stop fancying herself and then she could actually b nice!"

Hey! I don't fancy myself, and I AM nice!!!

This is fun!

Vicky said...

Too funny! I never did this! Where have I been? :) LOL about Kyle and Latroy! Happy TT!

Michelle Pillow said...

Kristy said...

#6 is me. I fell on my face in the shower last year. I now have shower mats. Next thing you know I'll need one of those things where you call for help because you've fallen and can't get up.

Kuanyin said...

I did the same thing after reading the blog, and I KNOW you're not making it up! :-) Happy TT!

Shari said...

BWA-ha-ha-ha-haaa! Oh, too funny... I enjoyed this one. I did this a few years back and couldn't believe the results. My TT is up, too!

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

Okay I have to go do this right now! I had no idea lol

Eden Bradley said...

This is SO funny! I just did this today-lol!

Ann said...

I was going to do that for my tt but couldn't come up with 13. Despite several that said that Ann needs to be slapped. oh well.

Joy Renee said...

LOL. you got some eye-popping ones.

this is what i did for my TT this week too.

this game must be gettign quite popular because players are appearing in the search, one to two per page of ten. did you notice that?

i thought it was going to be a qickie TT too. but then, as always i had to add another rule. i noticed that a few of the results lent themselves to a possible narrative line. Almost a plot even. So then I spent hours shuffling them and adding commentary until i'd woven almost all 13 into a sorta story.

it was fun but it took me so long that I didn't get posted before the visiting rush so only three had found it by Thursday evening and one was my sister.

I have time management issues too. I have no kids, no outside-side-the-home job, no home of my own to care for. potentially a writer's dream. and yet... productivity is far from ideal.

PJ said...

I'm going to have a go at this too. Happy TT!
