G2 and I were talking tonight, and we had both seen interesting entries on the Feedjit thingie, so in honor of that talk, here are a few:
I notice that a person who googled "ear tubes for Down Syndrome" and landed on my blog entry about my 25 year old daughter (who has down syndrome) and the fact that she is soon going to get ear tubes (again, for the umpteenth time). I am now concerned that this was a parent with young child who has Down Syndrome, who has now been exposed to a reality they weren't ready for. 25 years old???? STILL getting ear infections and needing ear tubes? Aieeee! Not for the first time, I wish I could follow those links back to their source (feedjit, see sidebar), and let them know there is more to the story. It's all going to be ok, Nebraska parent. The gifts will outweigh everything else.
Or how about the person from Vietnam who googled 'Did I hear that Correctly?" and landed on an entry about those things you hear incorrectly, that are really much more fun than what was actually said. I wonder what that person in Vietnam was actually looking for? How much of a nut did he/she think this US citizen is? Did it make sense at all (probably not, is my thinking).
My current favorite is the person from Plano, Texas, who googled "hummers in the snow" and got my entry on the little hummingbirds that came to my feeders when we were in the deep freeze a month back. They were probably looking for large Detroit generated vehicles that did well in the snow! I hope they had a good laugh, I know I did.
How come 'googled' isn't a word, according to my spell checker, but 'umpteenth' is?
How come it says "CAP NOW EASIER TO OPEN* on the bottle of Arrowhead Water, yet I still have to get a knife and hack in to every fourth one? Get real Arrowhead, your cap openers are still…not good. Maybe I can talk Costco into carrying a different brand of spring water. Yeah that's right, Costco is going to change brands on my say so, ha ha ha.
How come I did a post with Sarah Palin in the title, and got not one hit, google wise? It was just an experiment in understanding the workings of google searches. I think that it means that America (and her citizens) are smarter than I suspected. No one really cares.
How come I'm starting to sound like Andy Rooney?
And how come (and this is very important): I did this entry in word, with no paragraph indents. Then I had to paste it into an email, and mail it to myself in order to change the html into something blogspot can handle. Still no indents. Cut and pasted that into the blog entry box here on blogspot, still no indents. Published it, and voila! Paragraph indents! I really don't get it.
Oy yeah, so NOW I get the bloody pencil!!!!!! (G2, slinking to her corner)
