Friends Don’t Let Friends Drink and E-mail

Current mood: awake

Are you sure that you're mine
Aren't you dating other guys
You're so cheap
And I'm not blind
You're not worthy of my time
You're just a whore who sleeps around the town
And I've got proof because the word's going around
~ "Who's David" by Busted

As everyone who knows me is well aware, I am a big fan of Google and Gmail. In fact, I have never had an e-mail account that I love as much as I love Gmail. What I love most about Google is that they are willing to put experimental items out on the web for users to 'try'. Google Labs is what they call it. And, I am a Google Labs addict. At any given time, I have at least 5 Google Labs functions enabled.

Today, I added another amazing Google Labs feature that you all will wish you had thought of; "E-mail Goggles". What are 'E-mail Goggles' you wonder? You can go here for a full explanation E-Mail Goggles

The 411 is this: you set the time parameters (nights between 11pm and 4am, let's say.) During those hours, if you want to send an e-mail from your Gmail account, Goggle will require you to solve a few simple math puzzles. The logic is that if you can solve these puzzles, then you are sober enough to send an e-mail. Google Labs needs to be integrated into my real life – adding this feature to cell phones, text messaging, and blogs. Or maybe I should just carry a math workbook around – so that even before speaking with a guy while I am a little intoxicated, I can solve a few puzzles. I think about all the less than stellar moments I have had due to Vodka and no math book!

So, a shout out to Google Labs. . . Thanks, Google, for making my life a less humiliating existence!

PUBLIC NOTE: Prince Harry for President!

PERSONAL NOTE: 'Pretty One' I hope you are having a wonderful day off!

I'd definitely rock climb for you!
