The Google Goddess

Many of you already know the wonderful and esteemed Cruella Collett over at The Giraffability of Digressions.  If you don't, she is definitely a woman worth knowing, and for a vast number of reasons beyond the one below.

In response to my post yesterday, Cruella went online and found an electronic version of my sought-after model who exemplifies one of my characters.  She found it on the Everything Fabulous blog (direct link).  I can't imagine how long it took her, and I'm not going to ask, but the fact that she took even five minutes to look for this (after my hour—I think I'm Google-impaired) means the world to me.  Thank you, Cruella!

Anyway, here you go folks.  She's not my MC, and you don't even meet her until WiP#2, but I can't tell you how excited I am to have found her :)


Happy Monday, everyone! :)

Who is this wonderful and esteemed woman you are talking about? I blush, I blush! (And it didn't take that long, actually, once I asked the Googloracle the right question..)

You're very welcome, and thanks for the plug :)

That is who I look like in my mind. Only with blond-ish hair of course.

Cruella is a most giraffacious googler girlie. There’s no doubt about that. I’m pleased that she helped you to find what you wanted.

Have a good day, Boonie

If you Google Google does the internet explode? I like to Google Gogol, because it sounds cool, and I love Gogol. Epic win.

Rayna M. Iyer said...

Isn't that just like Cruella!

LTM said...

she's cool... I mean CC AND your muse. I'm looking at this picture and thinking, "yep, there's a story there waiting to be told..." :o)

a little like those drabble dares!

Jules said...

CC is the greatest. And I agree that picture is a story in its self. Glad you are happy with your google find :)

Cruella, goodness, I don't know who this miraculous superhero is :) I'm glad you have such a strong in with the Googloracle!

Karen, yeah, I can't say I'm not jealous of her look, either :)

Boonie, that she definitely is!

MJ, if it doesn't implode, it should. Googling Gogol is great. I wonder how Chichikov would have conducted his business in the age of Google...

Rayna, it most positively is!

Leigh, CC is totally awesome. Glad you like my character-muse, too :) I should see what kind of independent stories about her I can come up with.

Jules, she absolutely is. Thanks :)

YAY MARI!

While I happen to agree that this was very generous and wonderful of her to find it for you, she has an uncanny ability where stuff like this is concerned. I think her mind is just twisted enough that she can figure out the right search terms (possibly she is part geek) *shifty* (I mean that in a good way)

Jemi Fraser said...

Cruella is a sweetie! Great photo :)

RosieC said...

Hart, I'm part geek, just not the right part LOL. She's got a fantastic Googly gift :)

Jemi, it's so true. Thanks!

Belle said...

Lovely that Cruella found the photo for you!

RosieC said...

Belle, it was truly amazing. I'm lucky to know her :)

Cruella Collett said...

*snort* Tami has discovered my "secret". I am "part" geek. You know, I think I am geek all the way...

Alsø wik - if I hadn't found that picture for the sheer fact that I never can resist challenges such as these, I might have considered doing so had I known all the lovely comments this post would generate. Seriously, you and your commenters made my day, Rosie :)

DEZMOND said...

oh, that lass is an epitome of prettiness :)) Who wouldn't like to stand under her umbrella-ella-ella-e-e-e.... :))

RosieC said...

Cruella, I'm glad this has made your day. You definitely deserve the praise :)

Dez, isn't she frickin' beautiful? I'd love to look like that! :)

DEZMOND said...

well, she could eat a bit more and gain some more lovely curves since she looks a bit anorexic, but she has lovely eyes and hair and face and skin :)
