is this really what you want?

this actually raises other questions i'm likewise unable to answer
i was just perusing my google analytics to see who's been checking this spot out and how they've come to be here.

the most common ways for people to arrive here are fairly obvious- looking for a picture or review of a particular cosmetic product [happy to oblige], looking for a download of a particular album [sorry] or- less frequently than before but still prevalent- looking for dirt on bell canada and stumbling across details of my epic battle. although that battle has long passed, i'm happy to say horrible things about the company at the least provocation, so feel free to provoke me.

however, there are also some slightly stranger ways in which people find this blog. for instance, every day, i get someone who searched for "hooded figure" stumbling upon this post. and while there's not a lot of sense to most things here, that is an especially strange introduction. i wonder how many of them actually come back. [i should also add that if i search for the words "hooded figure", that post doesn't turn up.]

lately, this post has been getting a shocking amount of traffic, especially when you consider that it has to do with an election that happened in the first half of this year. i suspect that traffic is directed there from people looking for an unbelievably adorable photo of a baby seal and, yes, his photo would win anyone's heart.

back when i was doing mental health mondays, i used to get a lot of hits from people looking for drugs- information on them, yes, but often looking to buy them. i'd like to state officially that i don't sell drugs through this blog. [although it might be a way of boosting my income.] terms related to mental illness are also popular routes here ["anorexia" and "dissociative identity disorder" are the all-time most popular search terms leading to this blog.]

however, there are some methods of getting here that i just don't understand. and some of those make me deeply uncomfortable.


DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?


"been a useless alcoholic since benzos" :: might i suggest that if you continue to consume alcohol and benzodiazepines that you should be checking yourself into a clinic? nothing you find on the internet is going to tell you anything except what a bad idea that combination is. get thy butt to a doctor, pronto.

"boxmate meaning" :: if you find that out, please let me know. this probably isn't a good place to find out the meaning of anything. the host here is crazy, you know.

"blowjob" :: if you can't find a better resource for those on the internet than this blog, you're not trying very hard.

"anorexic toppless" :: well now that is an extremely specific fetish, but god knows there's a site for everything. might i suggest that you would have better luck finding resources if you learned to spell what you're looking for?

"gaysex blogspot" :: ok, is there some reason why all the dyslexic/ illiterate porn seekers are getting directed here? seriously, this will only lead to disappointment. and now i'm probably going to get a hundred hits a week from people looking for dyslexic porn.

"internet epic fail" :: well, it's nice to know that when people are looking for the worst of the internet, this is where they come. way to boost my self-confidence, google. [and no, that isn't a one-time thing. it's shown up many times.]

"heliotrope eyelids" :: i actually realised after a minute that this term led to me because of the wording i used in one of the looks i did in my "passion for purple". personally, i just love the idea that someone was searching for the term "heliotrope eyelids". there should definitely be a hipster band from williamsburg or the rhode island school of design with that name. definitely.

but my personal favourite search term, which comes up at least a few times a week is:

"http://morelikespace.blogspot.com" :: i'd like to put it to you that 1. you really don't need to search for a site when you have the full address or 2. you're unlikely to find another site when the information you enter is so specific.

["more like space kate" is also popular, but a bit more understandable. and it sounds like a wonderful dessert if you say it all in one flow.]

thank you very much to all of you who read posts on this blog this year. i truly appreciate every one of you and it gives me a great sense of satisfaction when i hear that people get something out of the experience of reading things here, whatever they may be. i hope that i'll be able to continue to bring you what you want, but i can't make any promises about the porn, although i did once consider pursuing stick figure porn in order to flex my artistic muscles. i can promise that i'll continue to be here, posting the contents of my addled brain, until the internet shuts me down or my fingers are to arthritic to type [at which point we'll all probably have servant robots anyway].

presidenting is hard :: these people are not your friends

hello mr. president! a while back, i promised that i would periodically be giving you some advice on how to do your job, since you seem a little unclear on how everything works. i didn't mean to go so long between missives, but the fact is that i've been busy and you're administration has been in overdrive giving me things to write about. what i've realised is that many of those things are ones i can't help you with: if you or anyone in your immediate circle worked with russians to compromise the 2016 election, that shit is done. robert mueller is going to find that out, because he's the kind of person who looks like the theme from dragnet just automatically starts playing every time he enters a room. so that's your problem. i'm just here to talk to you about what you can do now that you are, by law, the president. because, while chief detective mueller is doing his thing, we all need to live with your decisions. i'm even less happy about that than…

write brain

i was talking to a friend of mine about coffee, specifically about our mutual need for coffee, yesterday and, literally as i was in the middle of a thought, an idea occurred to me that i felt like i had to note. so there i am, scribbling a note to myself that was really just a word salad of related terms, which i later transformed into a weird but more comprehensible note that i could refer to later. [i don't want another beatriz coca situation on my hands.] i feel like this idea isn't a story on its own, but something that i could incorporate into a larger project, which is good, because i have a few of those.

now, of course, i need to sit down and do research on this, because it's become terribly important to me that the details of this weird little idea that i'm planning on incorporating into a larger thing be totally plausible, even though no one but me is ever going to care. i'm increasingly convinced that the goal of every writer is to find someone who will t…

luck of the irish?

i like st. patrick's day. i like the fact that there is a holiday that celebrates celtic-ness and drunkeness at once (you could argue they were pretty close to begin with). in fact, it's probably second only to halloween as my favourite publicly recognised holiday.

so every year, i have to have my little ritual and that ritual involves visiting a pub and partaking of the cheer. i've made attempts at watching parades in various cities, but i've more recently given up that practice because a) eight out of ten times, it's freezing cold and/ or snowing in canada on march 17th and b) the parades seem to consist entirely of trucks carrying people who are as drunk as i would be, if i weren't freezing my tush off watching them. so i've backed off the parade in recent years.

however, a visit to the pub, the longer the better, is still an important thing for me.

next year, however, i'm going to have to plan things a little better.

first of all, i didn't …
