I've been checking in with the stat counter a little more than usual lately, watching and waiting for the magic moment when the counter hit 10,000. What I discovered while doing so has me more than a little disconcerted.
Before I go any further, though, let me first assure you that I don't know who you are. I don't know where you live or your email address or what you are wearing. I am able to tell, however, what search engine and string you used (if you searched me out), and in what city your IP address is located.
And so it is that I happened to discover that a great many of the people (not just one or two, mind you, but lots and lots) who come to my site by happenstance do so after performing one of two searches. It turns out that the two most popular search strings used by people who visit my site are A three legged dog walks into a saloon, and I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree.
And then there was that one hit from someone who had searched for Jennifer Love Hewitt's can. I'm guessing he was more than a little disappointed in finding me here, instead.
