I don't call it miscellany for nothing.

My page loads tripled yesterday. Suddenly, I had 40 people coming to my kill the vermin post. While it is the BEST article I have ever seen on the subject (if I do say so myself), the sudden jump surprised me. I normally get about 10 hits a week on that page. Is there a sudden world-wide lice infestation? I'll never know because they aren't commenters. They come; they print; they leave.

Other popular searches that bring people here? "T@rture b@ys." "S@cks Baref@@t." "Fr@ud TJ@d and/or Th@mas Jeffers@n Educ@tion." "Home h@ircut" Hm... that first one flips me out. Go away, creepy weird@s. The second bemuses me. And third makes me feel guilty, because I was only kidding. The fourth makes me smile: I like that memory.

In other news, I'm working on a post about the teacher meeting that doesn't read "and then she said...and then I went like...so THEN she said and then I stood on the desk and gave the Tarzan yell and security dragged me away." I'll get back to you.

Can't wait to hear! Meanwhile, maybe this is a big vermin time of year? At least they want to read what you write--I get all sorts of people zooming in and zooming out based on some really wacky search words. Plus, everyone wants to know how wide is the Mississippi but no one wants to read what I wrote about it--plus, I don't say how wide it is. Maybe I should add that, huh? Maybe I should put at the start of that post--if you want to know how wide is the mississippi, keep reading. Hey, I like that--is good idea.

Working on the mommy/teacher battle post. It takes time to paint me nice sometimes. ;)
