Surprising “scribble”


I was all set to post my smile from today.  I opened up a new internet window, and moved my mouse towards the top of the screen where I could grab the bookmark for my blog’s admin address.  As the little white pointer moved up the page, I heard a noise.  I paused, and blinked.  What was that?

I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary…. Hmm.  Oh well, whatever.  Back to the task at hand.

I moved the mouse up the screen again, and again, heard a noise – like a few music notes.  What was that?

I looked at the web page I was on.  I didn’t see anything too out of the ordinary.  Google had a new doodle for today, but they frequently have new, cool, fun, interactive imag—

Oh-wait-a-second… I slowly moved my mouse towards the center of the screen – and immediately smiled when the doodle played me a note.  I hovered over the image to see what it represented: Les Paul’s birthday.

Ah!  The doodle is a guitar!

I “plucked” at each string, and happily grinned as the music hit my ears.  So fun!

Then I noticed a button near the bottom of the doodle.  I hovered over it, but no roll-over text appeared.  So I clicked it.  “Recording.”

No WAY!  I created a random little tune, then clicked the button again – and was given a URL.

I opened a new web browser page, and pasted the URL into the address bar.  I pressed Enter – and I’ll be darned: my song!

How freaking AMAZING is that??!!

The people at Google really never cease to amaze me.  Their doodles continue to grow ever more impressive: creative, artistic, beautiful, functional, and now, personalized.

Wow.  A completely unexpected, totally fun, inspirational and quirky little day-brightener.  I love it!


P.S. My song is nowhere cool as this one, which is truly delightful, and gave me yet another smile.
