I made a meme

So this meme that I accidentally invented over on Google+ a while ago has probably run its course in being adopted by about three people in comments over there, but after I stumbled into it, I never actually did it myself, so here goes.

When I type the letter "a" into my Firefox address bar, I am prompted to go to Apple.com.
B: Google Books
C: hulu.com/the-colbert-report (It starts with h, but c figures prominently in the title.)
D: Google Docs
E: facebook.com/FansofMuMo (Okay, this one confuses me. The event takes place at Eleven, so I guess that's it?)
F: Facebook
G: Gmail
H: hulu.com/the-daily-show-with-john-stewart
I: IMDB (For a long time this took me directly to the IMDB page for Maude, but I guess I've diversified my browsing lately.)
J: youtube.com/watch?v=TJjAVPQ-MTQ ("The Man That Got Away - Judy Garland - A Star Is Born - Multiple Takes." The J would be for Judy, I assume.)
K: katehphoto.com/Weddings/Stephanie-and-Lindsay/19017695_rLtSGK#!i=1505755840&k=dTqnCtQ (photos of a wedding I performed!)
L: LA Times
M: mail.ucla.edu
N: nifty.org (Shut up. I read dumb erotic stories, okay? They're better than the LA Times, so judge me for that one instead.)
O: hulu.com/the-daily-show-with-john-stewart (A repeat; I guess I don't go to sites that start with o.)
P: Google Plus
Q: google.com/reader/view/#stream/user%2F14401738787100415633%2Flabel%2FQueer (my Google Reader "Queer" folder)
R: Google Reader
S: superherofan.blogspot.com (Pictures of cute guys in scifi/fantasy/horror shows!)
T: Twitter
U: UAW2865.org
V: VintageEnoteca.com
W: wizards.com/dnd/tools.aspx (Dungeons and Dragons online tools. For the tabletop gaming nerd who also is a computer nerd. This one was the thing that started the meme, when I pointed out that having this not prompt me to go to Wikipedia was a nerd achievement.)
X: XTube (my boyfriend is 3,000 miles away, okay?)
Y: YouTube
Z: youtube.com/watch?v=dtJSLZnKCv0 ("Liza Minnelli - Ring Them Bells." I love that Firefox knows that it's from Liza with a Z!)

If anybody wants to divulge their browser alphabet in the comments, feel free! Mine change somewhat regularly, so I may eventually post an update, if for no other reason than to send folks to an awesome new site I've discovered in the meantime.

I have to say, I'm a bit creeped out that ten of the twenty-six are owned by Google. As is this site.

Ha! That's awesome. I did your meme, but I had to put it behind an LJ filter because being hacked thrice in a year has made me paranoid about leaving certain info unguarded on Teh Internets. You should be able to see it, though!

Oh, and thanks for the link to the wedding photos! I hadn't seen them, and they're awesome.
