By far my favorite part of having a website is reading my statistics, and the best part of that is the things by which my website has been searched for. Cause dude, some of you guys are looking for the WEIRDEST things. The highlights from the past year, with commentary:

  • “bentham webcam ucl” – Sorry, no live webcam links, never gone to UCL, and have no idea where (or what) “bentham” is. I could probably find that out on google, but I might end up back here, so I’ll refrain.
  • “spiderweb decorations made out of an umbrella” – See, this sounds like an interesting concept, but besides my overwhelming love of umbrellas, I’m really not qualified in this field. I bet you’d cut the fabric off the frame, but really that’s a guess. Try Martha Stewart?
  • “what is a reasonable woman?” – Interesting question. I mean, I’d like to assume that I am a reasonable woman, but I’m sure I could find people who’d tell you quite the opposite. Why are you looking for this woman? Am I settling a bet? Are you on a quest for higher understanding?
  • “mel gibson” – While I certainly appreciate Mel Gibson (especially in Maverick), he’s definitely not here. You will be very disappointed with me. Also, you must REALLY like Mel Gibson, cause I’m pretty sure I’d be about the last thing google would bring up on that search.
  • “stanford september 20 2005 freshman dorm” – Now, this I might be able to tell you something about, but you’re going to have to get more specific. I think I might have moved into my freshman dorm room on that day…are you stalking me? Cause that’s creepy, and unnecessary.
  • “my peace lilly’s leaves are turning brown” – DUDE. So were mine! But then she died and I put her in the dumpster. While this solution didn’t exactly fix the brown leaves situation, it did remove it from my immediate surroundings pretty effectively.
  • “my food is problematic” – I’m so sorry. What has it been doing? Running away? Turning pink? Invading North Korea? Do you need a doctor? In case of emergency, please hang up and dial 9-1-1.

Also, much more bafflingly, I’ve been occasionally linked to by some *ahem* less than savory sites. All I can think of is that this is a result of the completely out of control spamming on my guestbook, so I’ve deleted it. But still, creepy, and for the people who click those links, I’m sure disappointing.

    Nice list! Some of my November highlights: “guys” (#2 on the list); “лещен”; “sharkâ„¢ limited edition lightweight bagless upright vacuum”.

    You know, I think that the Bentham webcam might be me? Can that be? I searched for it because I was sure there was one, and then maybe I went to your site? Or maybe some other weirdos are also searching for it…

    Ahh, that would make sense. And it also might account for the *ahem* OTHER websites people are coming from, if those’re spammers coming in to the guestbook from their spammy spammy homes.
