Giveaway: WWJG?

I had all sorts of interesting things to say this week. I'm sure they were delightful and profound and hilarious.

But then the Internet went out for almost three days. Boo.

Part of me was riled up. I was missing e-mails! Facebook messages! Urgent tweets! OK, so there's no such thing in my life as an urgent tweet. But still—I was out of the loop, and I didn't like it. It's fine when I'm on vacation, but when I'm at home with things to do? Not cool.

Me, unplugged. Probably. Cows are cool, right?
Then I got all philosophical about it. Wouldn't it be nice to just unplug? To go the rest of my life without the Internet? I grew up without it, so I played outside until dark and I read lots of books and I played with Barbies. I still read books—and I'll say that my Barbies may have made an appearance in my living room in the last six months—but it's not the same when the Internet is hovering over your head as something in which you must partake. Besides, doesn't the Internet just lead to fear-mongering and an overload of information that you just don't need? For reals.

And then, of course, something came to mind to Google.

When you need to Google something and you can't, it's like an itch you can't scratch. Ugh. So annoying. I almost called friends and said, "Hey, can you please look this up for me? I can't go another moment without this crucial information!"

But, you know, I probably could. And I did. And now I don't even remember what I wanted to Google.

Now that I have my Internet back, I'm feeling a little punchy. Woohoo! Internet! Google! Yay! So I'm going to do a little giveaway for you.

And I do mean little. But still worthwhile!

I'm giving away a $10 gift card to Amazon.com! And I want your answer this question:


Is this silly? Yes. Funny? Could be. That's up to you! I am aware that Jesus is all-knowing, but maybe he'd find a need to Google something. I don't know. Use your imagination!

Responses will be judged by an impartial 3rd party with a great sense of humor. I promise. I know several. Winner will be announced next week, so get your entry in by Sunday at 7pm!
