Senior Moment

My wife was surprised to hear me use that phrase yesterday. If you haven't heard it before, it refers to one of those times when you momentarily forget what you were going to say or do.

I don't use "senior moment" to describe myself, because I've been absent minded my whole life. I'm a fanatical list-maker, because if I didn't write it down, I know I'd forget. In fact, sometimes my biggest problem is finding an old list and trying to remember if I've already dealt with it or not.

I was going somewhere with this, but I was interupted and now I can't remember. Sounds like a joke, but I'm serious. I didn't make a note to myself, and I forgot. It's inevitable I tell you.

Damn, that's gonna bug me too.

Update: Ok, I didn't leave myself a note, but another window was open on the PC and that reminded me. And it was a list, kinda. Some bloggers share what they find on their searchengine referrer logs, and I love to read those because it's usually funny and amazing what turns up. I haven't done it before because, well, I'm odd like that, and usually won't do something that others do.

But it's a list, which makes it ok for this post, which is turning into one huge rambling mess. Besides the expected "rocket" and "how to make a rocket" stuff I find:

"porta-potty" rental rate

Probably someone from the State Department.

The Gravity Probe B satellite conspiracy

Paging Mr. Stone...

beats him like a red headed step child

Yep, I use that phrase. Surprisingly though, mine has hyphens. Ok, so maybe not so surprising. Some say punctuation is a tool for writers. In that case, I'm like the movie psychotic who misuses various tools to bludgeon understanding into your unsuspecting mind. Make sense out of that screwed-up metaphore, I dare ya!

The google hits for "softcore lesbian movie spoofs shot direct to video" start to roll in! Go me.

The nude version. It's my idea, but I need investors. Any takers? Apparently someone thinks I'll need a barber on staff too.

2004 email addresses of MR. YOUSUF

I think we'd all like to have that. Let me know when you get it, ok?

All right, enough of this nonsense.

That explains why you forgot about that hockey game :)

Hmmm. I've noticed other bloggers mentioning these, too, but my site meter doesn't tell me stuff like that. I think I clicked on "hits by referrers" or something and it asks me to pay for an upgrade. In the event that I just wasn't looking in the right place, where exactly do you find the list of google searches that led to your site?

It's not part of SiteMeter, it's the other one next to it, called Extreme Tracking. Neither one is perfect, but Extreme offers a couple kinds of Referrer Tracking with their standard freebie counter.

Apparently I'm missing a lot of hits because I only have the counters up on my main page, but that's ok because I'm trying not to obsess over numbers. :)

It is interesting though to see who visits and how they get there.
