This Is What Happens When I Get Sick

Yeah, I get lazy and creativity goes right out just like the snot dripping from my nose. Sorry, that was a bit too much of a picture, wasn't it? I'm off to go wallow in my sinus infection and pray that when I wake up it's gone. In the meantime, have fun with the below.

Some of my favorite recurring posts to read are the ones showing how people found various sites. Stat Counter is a great tool. It not only tells me how many people visited my site (100 did for the first time ever yesterday, and I'm still beaming) and where they came from, but also how they got here. Some of the searches make perfect sense based on posts I've put up, but some just crack me up. Or confuse me. Or both.

My all time personal favorite though was "goddess." How that knew to go straight to my blog, I'll never know. But I'll take it!

Other recent favorites:

i found love never even crossed my mind
Apparently, the old adage is true that you'll find love when you're least expecting it. But I didn't think that my blog would be the conduit. Or maybe I'm interpreting that search incorrectly. Maybe that person doesn't love whoever loves them. But unfortunately, I don't see how my blog fits in there.

should i stay with a man i don't truly love but is good to me?
Oooo, now this is a potential post all on its own. I know several people, including some close friends who have settled. They really wanted to be married and some to have a family and so married someone that they know isn't a soulmate but is "good enough." I always felt bad for both parties in that arrangement.

When you're in love with someone, you want that person to be in love with you and not in the relationship because they feel you're suitable. I actually broke up with someone a couple years out of college who worshipped the ground I walked on but who I knew wasn't right for me. He was crushed, but I honestly believe it was the right thing for both of us. I want any relationship I'm in to be equitable. I just hope whoever searched for this finds happiness.

I promise, the rest will be less maudlin!

i truly hate my life sometimes
Now really. How do you get to my blog from this one? Have I really been that painful to read? Do I sound like I hate my life? I'm guessing that maybe this is the other person in the relationship who can't decide whether to stay or go.

redecorating the attic
Interesting concept. Of course, considering that I've never decorated an attic to begin with (unless you count the mouse droppings from the invaders we had last fall), I'm not sure that I can help this person.

my throat only whisper
Mine doesn't. Mine frequently gets much louder than that. I'm usually pretty good about not yelling at the wee ones, but I suppose it does happen. Although my sinus infections have been known to grow into laryngitis....

ladys lost underpants
While I do frequently lose things. And apparently sometimes I find them, that doesn't mean that if you've lost your underwear you're going to find it on my blog. I do really wonder what the purpose of this person's search was. Did they think that there might be a site where people find underwear, then post about it so you can claim it later? Freaky thought, really.

repair jeans rivet
I think this is one of my favorite searches. It proves to me that I'm not the only person cheap enough to not just toss a pair of jeans because the rivet broke. Of course, most people probably don't try to use Gorrilla Glue to fix them.

Thanks for the dripping snot image - hope you feel better soon!
I like the searches , they are usually pretty funny!

You have a greater understanding of StatCounter than I do. I tend to forget sometimes that I even have it...

I LOVE your fancy-cover-up-the-farmer's-tan shoes! Way cute!

Did NOT watch the new 90210, 'though I remember many an episode back in the day!

And looks like you have a fun blog. Stopped by from Debbie's place!

Lost underpants?! That is funny!

And congrats on 100! That is exciting :)

Hello there, yes Bina has alot of hair. I'm thinking it's retribution for the bald one I was born with.

Thanks for visiting. You have a lovely blog. The wierd things that connect us through the internet, huh.

Isn't it amazing the things people search on? And then even more amazing how they get to your blog?

I hope your sinus infection heals quickly. Drink lots of fluids and get a lot of rest.

should i stay with a man i don't truly love but is good to me? ...

maybe I will blog that sometime.

Mabunny - No problem. Anything for you! The searches are entertaining. I don't remember to look nearly often enough though!

Karin - Welcome! I forgot sometimes, too (shh). I'm so glad I found a cover up -- and any time I can help a woman in need....

Cookie - Yeah. The lost underpants sort of worries me! Stupid question (I'm blaming the sinus infection -- what is the 100?)

Jennifer - Welcome! I was bald until about 4, so I keep hoping I still have a chance. But I'm jealous of every child with good hair!

C - That doesn't sound good! I hope you never HAVE that topic to blog about! :)

Michelle September 30, 2008 at 9:05 PM  

Melissa - I wasn't purposely skipping you (I swear, it was the sinus infection brain). And yep... I really wonder who these people are that are searching such bizarre things! Thank you for the well wishes.

Oh my goodness. I have GOT to figure out how to see what people are searching to reach my blog. Wait... I'm scared to find out!!
