Urban Word Wednesday: Googleheimer’s

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Googleheimer’s: a condition where you think of something you want to Google, but by the time you get to your computer, you have forgotten what it was. Signs of severe Googleheimer’s; while surfing the Web, you think “I need to Google that” and by the time you get Google loaded, you forget what you were going to search for.

Examples Of Use:

“Natalie, I’ve got Googleheimer’s so bad that in the 30 second walk from the mail room back to my office, I forgot what I was going to look up on Google.”

“I hear ya Kim! I am battling a severe case of Googleheimer’s myself. I was online yesterday doing research for my new book when I realized I needed to Google a critical plot segment idea. I loaded Google and poof – in the 2 seconds it took to load, the critical element was gone – and worse than that, it never came back to me. I’ve been left with a feeling that something amazing came to me and I missed it. Damn I hate having Googleheimer’s!

Ever suffered from Googleheimer’s? Share the wealth…



  1. Oh no! I think Googleheimer’s is an infectious disease. It seems to be spreading quickly!

  2. Did you know that employees of Google are called Googlers? True fact. I wonder if they get Googleheimer’s?

    Makes me think of that song, John, Jacob, Googleheimersh*t – they were WAY ahead of their time!

  3. Yes. Googleheimers is sad. I’ll start researching some quirky 16th Century stuff and suddenly I’m plunged into trivia world with lots of new/old “shiny” stuff and forget what word I originally put into the search engine to get there. Fun post Natalie.

  4. Awesome! I do that all the time, and I don’t even have to leave my desk to do it! There is really a word for everything, isn’t there?!

    • Ouch – I get it!!!
      I know, isn’t it cool? You should see the lineup for this weekly feature. There’s some hysterial ones on the horizon! 🙂
