I think it interesting the search terms that people use that somehow ends them up at my blog. Today, let’s take a look at the Top Search Terms for the past week.
- What do I want for Christmas/What do I want for Christmas?/What do I want for Christmas 2011
-Well, Dear Readers… I’m not sure what you would like for Christmas. Tell me a bit about yourselves. Are you outdoorsy people? Do you like to spend your time in front of the computer screen? Are you a coffee-aficionado? So many things to learn about you to determine what it is exactly that would make the perfect gift.When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a large tub of hot cocoa mix, a bag of marshmallows, a package of peppermint sticks, some fuzzy socks and a sock monkey hat. Unless of course you don’t like hot cocoa with marshmallows (you FREAK!), abhor peppermint (good LORD what is WRONG with you!?), can’t stand fuzzy socks ( who would not LOVE a new pair of fuzzy socks?!) and are freaked out by sock monkeys (which, if you react to sock monkeys like I do to clowns… I can understand).
-Awwwww, THANK YOU! Wait, you looked up “Welcome” as a search term??? Well, you’re welcome. And now that I’m welcome (I guess for writing something about being welcome), and you’re welcome, and we’re all Welcome. VELKOMMEN!
- Why aren’t I good enough
-My first answer to this is because you didn’t use proper punctuation on your search term. No question mark? But, that might be a little harsh, and well… this is an open-ended search term. Why aren’t you good enough…… at tether ball? Okay, let’s go with tether ball. I happen to like tether ball, though I haven’t played it in years but I have talked to DH about installing a tether ball pole in the yard (and a stripper-pole in the house… but alas, no room for the stripper pole). Perhaps we should focus on your stance with not being good enough at tether ball. Are you standing with your feet together? That’s the first issue. You need to open your stance up a bit, be ready for that ball to come hurtling toward your face at the speed of light. Hold your hands up in a ready position. If they are hanging limply at your side, you just won’t be ready and KA-POWIE! You’ll take that ball right in the kisser. So, there you have it. Open up your stance and keep those hands up high and in ready-position, Reader, and you WILL be good enough for tether ball! Oh, and as Stuart Smalley says, “You’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like you!”
- As the gutter flows
-I have to say… I’m completely floored. Who knew that my little semi-fictional drama series would be searched for? I always knew I was awesome, but… WOO HOO! Thank YOU for your interest in reading “As The Gutter Flows”! I do have to warn you that we’re getting on into winter, and my hours are getting cut back for a few months, so I may have to kill someone off to increase the drama level.
And this concludes this weeks review of Sunday Search Terms! Thanks for reading and be sure to check back next week for fun-filled-frivolity and interesting responses to YOUR search terms!
