And speaking of searches….


I just checked my June stats for the first time. Do you know what the top search string was to bring people here?
Linus Van Pig.
What, in the name of Sam Donaldson’s undershorts, would possibly cause someone to do a search for that name? Who would even think of that? It is not a common pet name; it’s not like Spot or Rover or Blackie. It’s not the name of some celebrity or politician or fictional character. It’s something I made up when Linus joined our family just before Peanuts ended. Since he is a guinea pig I tweaked the name Linus Van Pelt to get Linus Van Pig. Am I missing something, here? Is there another Linus Van Pig out there of whom I am not aware?
Weird. Just plain weird.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
