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 The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
  2. Go to The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
  3. Go to 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!


  1. 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.

  2. Hey band is called Alan Richardson, my album is called "Unexpected in Common Hours"...:D


Thanks for the feedback!
