Brooke Needs

I wish I could remember which blog I saw this meme on so I could give the blogger credit and a link, but alas, I don't. God I hate being 40, at least I remember the meme.

First, go to Google. Then type in "(your name) needs" - don't forget to use the quotes. Go through the results and find 5 things you need and would like to share with the rest of us.

I have to add that I am so lucky that my name is the same as a major soap opera character!

So here are 5 (of the many) things that I need - according to my Google search.

1. Calling All Hunks Brooke Needs You!!!

2. To cut back on stress and find emotional satisfaction, Brooke needs a variety of intellectual pursuits.

3. Brooke needs to have a story line and a decent guy again!

4. To make at least part of life right, Brooke needs an arena for excellence.

5. Brooke needs a house, a car, some money, (and with $20 million dollars, she can hire her own damn housekeepers.)

I think these are all right on the money - literally. I now tag everyone reading this.

***Added note regarding previous post: My brothers have been calling and are offering more help. My classroom looks fantastic - I have three teachers begging me to do their rooms too. My cold has cleared up. My potty-mouthed student was the star student of the day today.

It's still hot and humid as hell and I'm still single. This too shall pass.

Packers won. But against New Orleans. Does that really count?

Thanks for being my complaint department. It won't happen again. Love you all.

hey there, what grade to you teach? I teach first graders...I painted my room over the summer in three shades of blue...I love it!!

Neil said...

You see -- the stars are aligning for you. Soon, everything is going your way.

The soap opera character is Brooke from All My Children, which I watch every day. Everytime she comes into a scene and some dramatic music plays, I giggle, thinking of you coming into the shot, wearing your old avatar's bikini.

Brookelina said...

Scrappy rose - love the name! I teach first grade too. It's my first year teaching - I'm exhausted!!

Neil - there is another character named Brooke - from the Bold and the Beautiful. Apparently she is quite the slut. She also likes to run around in a bikini as well.

darth said...

blogs are perfect for a complaint department! good to hear the brothers have come around...

hmmm..& #4, i think you probably already have several arenas like that...

here are some darth needs:


5. darth needs some cheering up
4. darth needs fixing
3. darth needs a bottle of geritol (what is in that stuff, anyways?)
2. darth needs food badly

and the #1 darth need:

1. with a big giant head like that, no wonder darth needs such an enormous helmet :lol:

diadima said...

i saw it on sandra's blog

so maybe that's where you remember it from.

ducklet said...

Google says I need to learn. And that I need more monkeys.

Pfft. I knew that.

Neil said...

Didn't realize that Brooke was such a popular soap opera name. The only Neils anymore are older Jewish guys like Neil Sedaka and Neil Diamond. But the name will come back, like Murray and Irving.

Gregg said...

There is also a Brooke on "One Tree Hill", ah .. not that I watch it or anything :-)

I don't know about the decent guy thing, but I definitely can offer a good story line ;-)

im here somewhere said...

i think the packers won because brett had a fairy godmother there with him( i am a viking fan btw), and i think that culpepper has something mentally wrong with him this year...so this should be an interesting season.

Cactus Prick said...

I need to watch more soap operas.

And yes, the Packer win counts. (BTW - I'd post that I'm a Cowboys fan, but then you would make fun of me like everyone else has for the past 15 years. But I'm not counting or anything).

xnzjkgis. f#$ckin' "x"s

Kallun said...

I tried you google search - this was my response...

"No standard web pages containing all your search terms were found.

Your search - "kallun needs" - did not match any documents.


- Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
- Try different keywords.
- Try more general keywords."

I'm not impressed.

1. Jacob needs a home - true

2. Jacob needs to be able to discern what deserves focus and what he must disregard. (Jacob is autistic) - somewhat true

3. Jacob needs heart and a competitive edge. - true, I have no heart

4. Jacob needs hand over hand assistance to eat and drink. (again, Jacob is autistic) - ok, I get it!

5. Jacob needs to find a way to fight the demons of his past so he can cross the river into the land that holds so much promise and redemption for him. - way to heavy to be true

That was fun.

I love this "NEEDS" idea... I think I'll try and post my results...

Are you singing "The sun'll come up.... tomorrow!"?


Anonymous said...

Brooke I tried this and I got a tone of results that "ruben Studdard" needed. I feel just great now that I have the same needs as a nealry 400 pound man. WTF!

Brookelina said...

Darth - big giant head. So many things to say....don't know where to start.....

Dia - could be. So what does Dia need??

Brando - do you need to learn the monkey?

Neil - that just reminded me that I had a dream about Neil Diamond the other night!!! How freaky. We were engaged, and he was horribly possessive. I was packing to leave him and he was making our wedding plans. It was very bizarre.

Gregg - another Brooke? My name is so common now.

lilred - I adore Favre, and with half the time out with injuries, he's going to have a very rough year. And I just love the name Dante Culpepper. It sounds like a salad dressing.

Prick - Cowboys kicked Eagle ass last week! My brother is a huge Cowboy fan and we torture him for it. But I've become one myself because of Parcells. I follow any team he coaches.

Brookelina said...

Kallun - I didn't believe you so I googled it myself. Damn, you were telling the truth. By the way, I love your name.

Jacob - classic! Guess it's better than being wetawded.
Ooooh I'm going to hell for that one.

TRM - I do not sing showtunes!!!!

Ruben - you just made me spit water out on my screen.

aoipbobg - that is just too many letters!!!

Damien said...

Damn Google said i need a stable two parent home, then of course I got the obligatory plot summury to the Omen movie.

officer krupke said...

Great post. Got to go. I have bad guys to catch.

im here somewhere said...

i used to live next door to dante culpeppers cousin. a family full of cuntzilla they are!

i did that meme thing mine is funny

Toni needs legs.

Toni needs to do a live concert

Toni needs a family that will be patient and nurturing

Toni neeeds help and needs to treat the cuts on her arm!

and last but not least...

Toni needs to get off the computer and get her hearing tested!!

( i beleive all of this is about toni braxton)

Bill said...

I think it was Lushy who got me on this. I need, "Big Changes, Work, a rewrite, Premium Support..." But the one that kinda threw me for a loop was:

Bill Needs Some Help To Expel Alien Gang Members

Rather a rude way to refer to my relatives - even if it is accurate.

gone said...

I am glad your cold is gone. Good for the potty mouth studant, I bet that made you real proud. ;)

Anonymous said...

I'm glad the sun is shining on our
Brookie again.

Glad to hear you are feeling better.

And please, complain anytime. Whether you're light and breezy Brooke or complaining Brooke, we all still love you anyway!

Just DON'T go away again like that. Ha!

Lo Lo Lova said...

I put in Lo Lo Lova AND my real name, and neither worked. Stupid Google!

Todd needs more pictures.
Todd needs less pictures. (make up your mind damnit)

Todd needs a method by which he can generate his own
messages (what is this called then dummies?)

Todd needs to know basic logic (if I had a nickel...)

Todd needs a new plan (I admit the old one stinks)

Todd needs Gabrielle’s help (to get rid of Carlos forever so I can finally become her personal shoe horn)

Brookelina said...

Damien - would the two-parent home save your soul from the devil?

Officer Krupke - did you find my real family? And are they fabulously wealthy?

Toni - needs legs? Ick.

Bill - maybe Officer Krupke can help you with that.

SD - I was proud, until yesterday when he was crawling around on the floor and barking like a dog. I love my job I love my job I love my job...

Sunny - teacher support is the best! You rock!

Lo Lo - kick google's ass!!! I'll hold it down while you kick its ass!!

Todd needs more interesting needs!!

Calzone said...

I can't stop thinking about you.

Anonymous said...

For the record, this is a post solely for the purpose of trying to get with you.

Brookelina said...

Calzone - you're just rebounding from the dumping by Ubermilf.

RU - as long as we understand that it's strictly physical. My heart belongs to SMB....and Neil....and Darth...Prick....oh just pick a name on my bloglist...

Hun, you have my Yahoo and I have a free weekend.

Brooke needs to go back to her old photo... lounging by the pool was sooooo much better, doll!

The Wedding Party said...

no naked tits!?! this blog is a rip off! i quit!

Brookelina said...

RU - you say that to all the girls.

TRM - but I no longer look like that in a bikini - so I felt I was falsely representing myself.

Wedding Party - I quit too!

Anonymous said...

Nah. Only the ones that I have seen extremely hot pics of.

Brookelina said...

Oh you are good at this!

Scott Cunning said...

That's horrifying.

I'm going to do it on my blog next week.

kate said...

I just found this site today, and when I read this post I had to try it myself! Being a 'Kate', I found tons of sites about Kate Moss, Kate Hudson and all those other Kates out there, so mine are pretty funny. Hope you don't mind- I picked more than five...

1. Kate needs more than just a Glad bag of coke for an evening.

2. Kate needs to go hardcore.

3. Kate needs a kidney transplant.

4. kate needs to talk about the color of paint. (I'm an artist, so I really liked this one)

5. kate needs some alone time to ponder life's little challenges.

6. kate needs to meet the mayor of Israeli Arab town Umm al-Fahm.

7. Kate needs to quit trolling for freaks.

8. (My favorite) Kate needs you to help her and her newfound friends escape the mean circus and find their ways back home!

Brookelina said...

Kate, I hope you come back to my blog again. How did you find me?

Your "Kates" are hysterical. And your artwork is amazing! I'm looking at it now!

kate said...

Let's see... I am trying to re-trace my steps to see how I found your blog.. okay, I remember.

I did that thing at the top where you click 'next blog'... 'next blog'... 'next blog' until you find one you like. I really love your posts- I lost almost a whole day reading what I've missed!

I have to say that from what I've read, the things I loved the most were your story about Europe with the hooker that chased you, and the bumping uglies-- especially the bush administration part.

Thanks for the compliment on my artwork. Want to exchange links?

Well I have to go...escape the mean circus and find my way back home =)

PS- anyone who has heard about aaron brown leaving cnn and wants him back, please sign my petition at www.bringbackaaronbrown.com

Brookelina said...

Thanks so much! It means a lot when people just happen by my blog and enjoy reading my stuff. There is a lot of crap out there as we both know, so the fact that mine caught your attention is very cool!

I am definitely adding a link to your site to my blog. Keep on coming by!

kate said...

Thanks for adding my link! Yours is on my favorite links page-- http://www.kategabrielle.com/links.html. I wrote a little blurb to go with it, so let me know what you think!
btw I see you like Viggo Mortensen, did you see him on the Daily Show a few weeks back? The video is on the comedy central website.

Brookelina said...

I love the blurb! I even added another link right to it! I'm very flattered.

I didn't know about Viggo's appearance until another blogger told me. I immediately found it on the Comedy Central site. I think I love him more now. If you ever see him in NY..send him my way. LOL
