Unoriginal and unapologetic

At the risk of winning some sort of Unoriginal Blog Post of the Year award, I was bored this evening so I wandered over to Statcounter. This lovely wee widget (sounds like a term of endearment doesn't it?) lets you see who has been coming to see you, where they came from and, most entertainingly, what search engine terms brought them to your blog. I couldn't resist sharing some with you, together with my initial reactions to them.

"Paranoia at the gym" - is perfectly normal, I assure you. At least I hope it is.

"Basil plant smells like cat wee" - well, it shouldn't. Especially if you don't actually have a cat.

"
The cost of an unclean gym" - a damn sight less than a clean one, I should hope.

"
What is a royal of a telephonist/receptionist while working in an office" - Well, it's a.................what?

"
redneck mommy war and peace" - well I know some of her posts go on a bit, but that's a bit of an exaggeration

"dyspraxia and cutting fingernails" - go together like hiccups and shaving

"
chastised husband" - I strongly suspect this is not the blog you are looking for.

"
cat spewing digestion" - Yup, I have mornings like that too

"urp kant" - I have no idea. Unless that's the sound that cat spewing digestion makes.

And finally

"siggi bennett" - Seriously? How the hell did that search bring you here? I mean I know who Mr Bennett is (although I doubt many of my readers do) but I don't recall ever having mentioned him. So this kind of spooks me. Also, I am fairly certain that anyone googling Siggi Bennett does not want to reach my blog. I can only be a disappointment to them.

  1. Laughing. A lot. Must go and look at some of mine. I haven't been lately, and I keep getting comments in ideographs. Maybe as a result of citing Anne of Green Gables and they're Japanese. Who knows.
    You never disappoint.

  3. So how do you find this out, then? My stats counter doesn't tell me interesting stuff like that.

  4. Could 'urp Kant' be someone in search of belching philosophers?

  7. Wake up! Time for another post!

    I saw the Poet Laureate today. And indeed heard her. She was at the Book Festival. She wore sparkly jewellery.
