A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about some of the keywords that have led people to my blog.

Some folks type something like "how to wrap a pagne" into their search engine and end up, probably reasonably satisfied, on a page showing how to wear a West African style skirt. There's pictures, even!

And I'm pretty sure that whoever typed in "stripping wallpaper fragile plaster" also found plenty of relevant reading on my blog.

However, some of the keywords, are more than a little puzzling. I check them at least once a week, just to marvel and muse.

Here are a few of the more unusual entries on last week's list:
bureaucracy gone mad -I wonder what kind of hell this person was going through that led them to seek fellow sufferers on the web? Maybe he tried to apply for a Famillie Nombreuse card and is now looking for a support group?

i hate working in France - Again, I'm guessing this is someone whose misery would love some company. I wonder where he/she works? Liddl?

jp sunbonnet- Once I got over the mental image of my dignified spouse wearing a sunbonnet, I tried my own search using these keywords. All I got was lots of mentions of a quaint, really annoying quilt block design. The original searcher must have gone through pages and pages to finally stumble upon a link leading him to a post in my blog that mentions both protective headgear and my husband.

Here's my favorite of the week: hotsexgoddess- Not a shoe that fits, but I'll put it in my closet. Thanks!

And my least favorite: LARGEBLONDE. I have to own it, but ouch, dude!

So am I a total copier to have done this, or are you copying me? :P

I'm getting more and more creepy diaper fetishists in my keyword reports. I'm a little disturbed, but I really don't want to change the title of my blog.

The pervs. I tell you.

Dear TM,
My first post on this subject was on April 3, 2009. Yours appeared on April 20.
But you're not a 'copier'. I consider it to be a tribute/homage kind of thing.
And I know what you mean about the freaks. I STILL get lots of hits from people looking for "Japanese housewife surprised in bathroom" porn. What's up with that?

Statuesque, ma chère blonde!

Oooh, I like Franéricaine's comment!

I have to agree.
Our Framericain is not only kindhearted, but she also has an excellent vocabulary.

This is so funny. I like seeing what search words people use, too.
