I learned about “Cha-Cha” from my family — who are all obsessed with it. It’s actually become a verb around the Forsberg household. Some of you may know of it and use it often, if you don’t… you will now!


I thought Google text messages were a great idea when I learned about them a couple of years ago. You can text basic words to g-o-o-g-l-e and instantly get back results for no charge besides the cost of a text message. I travel a lot for work, so some google texts that I used to send a lot were:


“weather [zip code]”

“[MN sports team] score”

“Pizza delivery [zip code]”

… just to name a few.



Cha-Cha takes this to the next level. It works the same way as Google text, but you can ask anything because rather than going to a computer driven search engine, your text messages are actually going to a person who is sitting at their computer and will research the answer for you. This way, you don’t just get a link or general information — you can actually get exactly the answer you need. I haven’t ever used this in a time of dire need or panic, but it’s a fun way to settle debates, fill-in idle time or, just remember the name of a movie that’s on the tip of your tongue! Here are some text questions and answers from cha-cha.

    I wrote: “Does your absentee vote count if you die before election day?” I asked this because I was wondering if Obama’s Grandma’s vote would count since she passed away yesterday, I thought that was terribly sad.
    They responded: “Oregon counts ballots no matter what happens to the voter. But in South Dakota, if you die before the election, so does your vote.”
    Love it Jess, had no idea how to ChaCha!
