Keyword Craziness

Everyone loves a good post on silly keyword searches on your blog, right?  While mine are not as wacky as Kerri's or Allison's or some other folks', I think these were some gems worth sharing:

Dorkabetic:  Sure, it seems pretty obvious, but come on, it makes me say, "You like me!  You really like me!"

Bleeding madras washed:  So apparently, a lot of madras plaids are actually (or have been) known as "bleeding madras", I guess because the way they are woven and then washed, the colors bleed into the whiter parts of the fabric.  At least, that is the gist I've gleaned from this little essay from Lands' End, who I'm pretty sure sell nothing short of a shit-ton of madras plaids.  However, there's this one time I just happened to be wearing a madras plaid, and then I bled all over myself, so I guess now I'm showing up in someone's search results.

Bridge Camden Philadelphia:  I have a poem in which I mention the Ben Franklin Bridge, but I've never posted it here.  I've taken a few trips from Philly into New Jersey and back.  I have no idea why this brought someone to my blog.  None.  Also, I've heard that NJ now charges you $5 to get out of the state.  Seriously, you never have to pay a bridge toll going into New Jersey, but now they are charging you $5 a trip to get out, regardless of whether you are on the Ben Franklin, the Walt Whitman or the Delaware Memorial bridges.  Sheesh!  I am not going to stay, NJ!  I will scrape up the five bucks!

Getting a dorks attention:  Oooohhh, this one is my favorite.  Here are some tips.  First, maybe send me an email, I'm pretty likely to respond.  Oh, maybe they weren't looking for information on me specifically?  You can probably search out most dorks by finding and participating in the things they like to do.  Do you play World of Warcraft or other MMORPGs?  Do you like to LARP?  Have you ever attempted to pick someone up at a poetry reading, a bookstore, a library or a comic book shop?  Do you enjoy any of the following fandoms:  Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, etc.?  Your prospects for getting a dork's attention are endless, dear readers!  You just have to be creative!  And encourage them not to be shy.  And seriously, if you're looking to get my attention, I'm listening.  Email me.  :)
