It always fascinates me how people find my blog, if they're searching for something completely unrelated. I use StatCounter to keep an eye on it, cause I like to know who's reading, where they're from, who's linking to me, and so on. People come here from Iceland, the USA, Australia, Canada, Thailand, South Africa ("deeplomatic eemuniteee!"), Germany, Spain, even Japan (give me a shout if you're from any of these or other places, I'd love to know). People have linked from all over, including Digg (for the horror sins post), and Whedonesque (for the character intro post). And occasionally you get some... strange search terms that people have been using, and somehow they land here. I posted about this before, using search terms from my old website, but it's time for an update, as there have been some new weird ones. In no particular order, here are the strangest things people have been searching for that somehow led them here:
drunken ferrets: Shame on you. Do you feel superior, lording it over sad, lonely ferrets ruining their lives with alcohol?
special pens at whsmith: I don't know why, but this one really scares me.
laura harris topless: Ah, the internet. Allowing us all to express our interest in talented actresses... by searching for naughty photos of them.
lorraine bracco legs: And this is *not* from the same person as the Laura Harris stalker, I'm sure both ladies will be happy to know. You have one each! Yay!
prayer cloth: Wow, they really ended up in the wrong place here, didn't they?
the price is right and moments and topless: I have no idea what the hell this person was looking for. Moments of toplessness on The Price is Right, maybe? Does this mean anything to anyone? Of course, you won't tell me, as you'll be exposed as the searcher.
big retard blog: I guess it's the only way my mum can remember it. And yes, if you search for that (on Yahoo), this blog is the 8th link found. Thanks, Yahoo.
If anyone is reading this who used any of the above search terms - I'm really sorry, it's perfectly normal, please don't find out where I live and murder me. Not that I'm saying you're capable of murder. Or incapable of murder, I'm sure you could do it if you really wanted to. But I'm not saying you want to. Or anything. I'm sure you're a perfectly reasonable human being. I used "scary internet people" in a purely affectionate, ironic way.
