del.icio.us + google would be nice

Just thinking about how to get better ROI from my del.icio.us links. I typically put links in there that I want to retrieve later, usually multiple times. I don't put transiently interesting links in there usually, as I know I'll never go back there. I use del.icio.us to store links I know I'll want to refer to again and again.

Problem is, del.icio.us is a black hole. I throw stuff in there, and I never return to it. Why? Because the little Google search box in firefox makes it way to easy to just search google.

What I need is a single search box, but with the ability to search google and del.icio.us. I want to see my del.icio.us links have very high priority on my google searches. If I can integrate the two databases, then I'd have something special.

I'm sure there's a way to do this with a firefox plugin.

There real issue is, "How do I know I put something into del.icio.us?" Once it's in there, how do I know I'm even able to retrieve it? That's why google works so well, because I don't have to know if it exists or not.. I just assume it does. With del.icio.us, that assumption isn't valid all the time. But my workflow doesn't involve me asking myself, "Maybe I bookmarked it, so first let me search del.icio.us" I need the searching of my bookmarks and the whole web to be integrated into one simple search.
