Checking the Googles

I couldn’t sleep last night. Changes on the horizon, pretty much all of my own making. More on that in days to come. But during my extremely uncharacteristic insomniac hours, I found my brain mulling over all the little nicknames and phrases we of the elderly set have come up with to make the Internet less Internetish and therefore more “in” our domain.

Here’s a sampling of ones I hear regularly:

·         The Interweb or the Interwebs
·         The Internets
·         Checking the Googles
·         Going to the Yahoos
·         Twitterizing
·         Twitterfacing
·         Doing the TwitterBook

These make me laugh, almost without fail. I’m predictable like that. What are some words or phrases you use or you’ve heard to sweetly mock this fine Internet we ride?


  1. Hilarious! I haven't heard some of these before. I am definitely going to add "doing the twitterbook" to my vocabulary. :-)

  2. I know, right? People are so creative. Gotta love 'em.
