Google alphabet

I read a blog post today from someone who started searching for something beginning with 'wh' in their google searchbar. Before they could finish typing, "what is twitter" was offered up as a suggested search in their dropdown. He was curious what the suggested search would be for each letter of the alphabet. This is what came up:

amazon
best buy
craigslist
dictionary
ebay
facebook
gmail
hotmail
irs
jcpenny
kohls
lowes
myspace
netflix
orbitz
photobucket
quotes
realtor.com
southwest airlines
target
usps
verizon wireless
walmart
xm radio
youtube
zillow

He wasn't logged in when he tried this, and it made me curious (and a little bit scared) as to what would come up in my own google toolbar based on my previous searches. So without further ado, here is MY unfiltered google alphabet:

abattoir
background images web design
cabalist
d o o economics
eagles salt lake city
facebook microsoft
game over
H rock highland
i miss you spanish (for when i'm speaking with my latin mistress)
(runner up for i: "i seem to have inhaled some dust")
j & j layton
kaizen
law of diminishing returns
mac mov to swf
nambu
obadiah parker piano heya
p22 cezanne
questionnaires
race for the cure
safari
t-mobile
ubiquitous
val kilmer (uhhh... don't remember why i was searching for this one)
w-4 form child or dependent care expenses
x-men origins trailer
you feel like a candle in a hurricane
zanthranon

You'll notice that each of these is sorted alphabetically, not by frequency. Meaning, these aren't the most frequent searches, they're just searches I have done before, and at the top of my alphabetical previous search list.

These are unfiltered by the way. I could have chosen other searches from my dropdown, but these were the very first ones that came up first, and I thought it would be the most fun to just let the chips fall.

So, my challenge for YOU: If you dare, post your google alphabet as a comment in this post.

Happy googling!

Why did I google YouTube you ask? I'll answer your question with a question. Why don't you google "face transplant" like I did and waste several hours looking at the results? That'll teach you to ask questions.

Several of the letters don't have results for me (except for the default suggestions) but here's the ones that do:

abilify reviews
back to basics smoothie freeze
calorie counter
dinosaur park ogden
eas shakes
food rotation system
graco jogging stroller
hill airforce base museum
i want to be baptized mp3
janice kapp perry
lightning mcqueen toddler bed
michael jackson dead
ogden clinic grand view
stinky kitten
taylor lautner
ups 3 day select
vitacost source code

There you go. A glimpse into the life of a stay at home mom. You have everything from anti-depressants, to food, to toddler activities, to the latest gossip.

Haha, those are great.

@Joe: Is occidental college kind of like enrolling accidentally?

@Lydia: Stinky kitten, glad that one got resolved.
