My site is the #1 site on google for the keywords 'I wear the cheese. It does not wear me." I'm not sure how to respond to this.
Other things I've gleaned from the log of referrers are:
-- Europeans keep finding this site by searching for "snow torture." Bet they're disappointed.
-- Mere mention of "booty" is a guaranteed hit grabber, regardless of actual content.
-- Everyone and his mother is looking for info on Iain M. Banks' The Algebraist. Not the book, mind, but the cover. Wish I had something to tell you about it, other than the fact that it is stunning. A scan is here, but it doesn't really do justice to what it looks like in person.
-- People want to know how to build crossbows. I got nothing.
Other things I've gleaned today, just in general:
-- If I had a nickel for all of my mandatory office hours that I've spent all by my lonesome just hoping some student would drop buy, I could buy a heck of a lot of coffee and skeins of sock yarn to occupy my idle time in my windowless concrete bunker. Sure, each student asks about my office hours at some point during the term, but very, very, very few ever stop in. And the few who do are not the few who should, if you know what I mean.
-- This week's issue of my former paper of employ has a great feature by Rachel E. Pollock about Knoxville and making peace. This essay is so very good that it almost makes up for the current publisher's self-congratulatory editorial that is truly enough to make one violently ill. I got out just in time, it seems.
-- Jelly Belly cappuccino beans will cure almost anything that makes you woozy, even the aforementioned editorial.
