"Man, my ol' lady is going to kill me. I downloaded all this porn after
a night of drunken googling."

Or is that a typo for "goggling"?

Urban dictionary has an entry for a related expression plus a
combination "droogling":

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Drunken+Googling

[Begin excerpt]
Drunken Googling

Usually means looking up (and/or trying to contact) exes using Google
after drinking droogling, but in the broader sense, is any online
activity taken on after drinking.

Man, my ol' lady is going to kill me. I downloaded all this porn after
a night of drunken googling.
