What do you need?

Inspired by an FB post, I thought I’d try out this exercise.

  • Google your name and the word “needs” [i.e. ABIGAIL needs]
  • B) Click search
  • C) Record the first 10 results

According to Google Abigail needs:

  1. Abigail needs a drummer
  2. Abigail needs a hat
  3. Abigail needs more character development
  4. Abigail needs some restructuring advice
  5. Abigail needs 24/7 nursing
  6. Abigail needs a share in Cambridge, MA (TWO of us in Cambridge??)
  7. Abigail needs numbers
  8. Abigail needs some enemies and rivals
  9. Abigail needs a new coat
  10. Abigail’s strength needs to be spoken of

Neat!ย  I feel like I never need to read another self-help book ever again ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, I’ve always felt like I needed a drummer.

  1. So… the first thing I got was “Meghan needs a savage beating.” this doesn’t really bode well for me…

  2. Haha, I am also Abigail (or Abby) so I feel like your list works for me too – and I’d be pretty ok with having a drummer!

  3. I didn’t get many…. Perhaps with a name like Currie it is different. BUT I loved my first one and it is kind of true. “Currie so needs a glee club” Yes, yes I do!

  4. hahaha mine said “Dennis needs to shit”

  5. 25 cents and 2 fingers is apparently all I need…
    I don’t know whether I should be proud or a bit concerned.

  6. Apparently a lesbian needs advice.
    And there was I thinking I knew what I was doing…

  7. I need more coffee and a USA World Cup win, please. : )

  8. lol…I definitely have to try this…


  9. My first one was “ALINA NEEDS YOUR NUMBERS” :))
    so gimme numbers people… telephone, social security,pin… all kinds of numbers:))

    and for my middle name (simina) I couldn’t get anything. I guess that goes to show there’s always worse, Currie:P

  10. Apparently, my life is a mess. I need a firewall; some help; to look up Captain Lou Albano; to make sure I eat enough in the morning before I go out to film. I think I should reevaluate my life!

  11. Liske van Lill

    seems like my name is sort of unique, because the drop-down list doesn’t display anything for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I had to click on “search” to get a full list of results. The auto-fill text didn’t have any information for me, either. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. WOW, Marti needs a new set of C-DUBBS, buy this and save! I have no idea what C-DUBBS are but thankfully they seem to be sale so I will save!

    LOL that was fun, thanks!

  13. Apparently, Sharon needs to “stop shooting and start talking”. Unfortunately, my first name happens to be the same as Ariel Sharon’s last. I’ve actually been accused of being a war criminal on a few headlines as well. -_-;

  14. The first ten hits for my real name were people who had done this on their blogs (so that hardly counts), the FB profile for some lady whose last name is Needs, and “a miracle”, “help” and “your prayers”. Doesn’t bode well, methinks.

    That said, Princess Peach needs some self defense classes.

    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

  15. I need to calm the hell down, contact my therapist and stay in the harness for another month. I also need a saviour, and only Alexander will do, apparently…

  16. Oh, great. It says, “Todd needs a spanking.” I’d rather have a drummer.

  17. “Tara needs to keep her clothes on” and “Tara needs her mouth washed out with soap…” And here I thought they weren’t on to me yet. D’oh! Great post, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Congrats on making Freshly Pressed!

    Sara needs a playful, loving home ….hmmm, having an infant and toddler doesn’t cut it?

  19. I need attention, and a new screen name apparently lol.

  20. According o google, I need: someones help against the winter and a slap!! But i also wanted to try what google for other countries sais and acording to Google.com.ar i need some rest, help and cuddles!! i rather like what Argentinian google says.
    Nice post and very useful XD

    (ps I used my eral name, Elena)

  21. hahaha, fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. *sigh* Dora needs to quit asking 6 years olds for direction and get a GPS.

    That’s pretty much awesome.

  23. What baby needs, baby gets.

  24. Funny I did my name.. Marisoll and it says

    This is a great topic… But everyone is replaceable.

  35. THis is funny im going try it.

  37. Unfortunately every time I’ve tried this recently I’ve only gotten hits for Joelle from The Biggest Loser (a show I absolutely ABHOR). It was so much more fun when there wasn’t a Joelle on TV. I do get one “Joelle needs a band!” but that’s it. Stupid horrid TV show ruining all my fun. It was on maybe three seasons ago and that Joelle is still ruining my Internet fun.

    7. Robyn needs another excuse to make a cake. (I make cakes? Awesome!)
    8. Robyn needs to get back to game development. (I have been neglecting my MMORPG lately. My sorceress must be itching to take on some monsters.)
    9. Robyn needs some education. (Ha!)
    10. Robyn needs to wake up and realize that the 80s are gone! (What? You mean I have to stop wearing my glittery spandex to work? Oh noes!)


  41. OMG, this was so funny. Thanks for the idea! I did the same with my daughters’ names and I laughed so hard I nearly peed my pants.

  42. This is the problem with sharing your first name with a well known pornstar… although she spells her name with 2n’s tyvm…

    “Jenna needs help with a boy”

    For a girl that has written about her tumutulous dating life as much as I have in the past/present.. this is incredibly (and sadly) spot on accurate.


  43. lol
    Stacy needs:
    …her back shaved.
    …needs to tweet
    …needs to get a gig with Penthouse
    …needs to pack up and crawl back in the hole she slithered out from

    …needs to hang in there until she’s old enough for Usher
    …needs to put down the crack pipe
    …needs spanking
    …needs to interview Gorbachev

    Some of the stuff was pretty raunchy, other stuff was referring to a soap opera star who is endlessly pregnant.
