Randomly Un-Food

I stumbled across this cutesy little activity at a new food blogger that I found today: Overflowing With Awesome. This discovery (I love finding new blogs to read, and add to the ever-growing blogroll!) was a happy accident facilitated by GroupRecipes, where I was hovering today while flat on my back after a day filled with 4 banana breads and one (of 3) cheesecakes. Not a lot of work, you say, whipping off some quickbreads and a stand-mixer made cheesecake? Well, that may be true if you are able to spend hours on your feet (or, you know, lucid) without the aid of drugs or a nap, which I apparently am not. Yes, I am in a downward position today as far as feeling healthy goes, but that won't stop me from having some fun with this internet discovery thing.
So, here's what you do:
  1. Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
  2. Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3. The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
  3. Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
  4. Put it all together (I used the oh-so-fancy MS Paint), and that's your first album.

I invite anyone reading this to have a go at this, whenever you're feeling bored, down, or in the mood to discover something new and totally random, and not necessarily food-related in the least.

I'll be back, but not tomorrow (school beckons), with a new recipe and with luck, a story! School stories may soon turn out to be in short supply though, since the George Brown Con Ed site is giving me the impression that the &*@$#ng school has cancelled the courses I've signed up for. Sigh. At least there's only 1 hour left of today!

P.S. ---> I've joined a new great group started by Simple Daily Recipes: The GreatCooks Blogroll. If you haven't already taken a look-see over there, it's a great resource for all foodie-minded people to come together!

Glad to provide some entertainment.

I haven't quite figured out if I like GroupRecipes. I love to play with new social networks, and I love food... so, maybe I'll find a use for it.
