“images of charlie brown getting a blood tranfusion”

11 Feb

Happy Friday!

So, I’ve discovered one of the great pleasures of having a blog is looking at what people search the interwebs for to get to your blog.  WordPress generates a lovely list of all the terms people have used to land in your little corner of the internet.  Lots of these terms make sense; like “zebra chronicles” or “ovarian cancer” or “chemotherapy”.  Lots of the terms though, make limited to no sense.  Yes, this blogpost title is one of those terms.  In fact they range from the strange to the puzzling to the alarming and are all, in my opinion, hilarious.  So, while I’m getting yet ANOTHER blood transfusion (2 units this time, baby), I thought I’d let you all peruse a sampling of these terms with me, and hopefully have a laugh.  Enjoy.  And forgive my running commentary, I can’t help myself, please add your own!!

The Question Query
“do breasts show up on xrays?”
– Actually a pretty good question…

“do moleskine journals cause cancer?”
– Clearly how I got cancer

“what does it mean when a zebra smiles?”

“i am a homeless person in the third world what are my options”

“why is it important to the zebras survival that it runs/walks fast”

“is barium sulfate going to mske me poo”

“i had a nosebleed this morning can i have wine tonight”
– A question after my own heart

“what is this huge bloody thing coming out of my nose”

The Celebs
“cliff lee wife”

“lance armstrong scars”

“hugh laurie biceps”

“julia stiles chemo”

“did john lennon receive any blood transfusions?”

“ozzy osbourne my belly gettin big”

“stacy schiff bloody”

Clearly Not Looking For A Cancer Blog
“dump on chest”

“softball mom gatorade getting tee pickure taking”

“i would leave you panting dripping with sweat”

“emly 19 hot puke”

Totally Random to Slightly Alarming
“a bloody apron”

“fuck my medschool life”

“drug inside body bug”

“well this day wasn’t complete shit, i rode a zebra”

“vagina scar”

“i got a ct scan and green stuff came out of my vagina”
– Bummer, dude

“blood was dripping down my body from the shower head while my girlfriend watched”
– Again, bummer, dude

“my worst suspicions are true, they are bugging me, i found a warm today.  i am paranoid man, i just stripped down…”
– This one actually goes on and on for a full tortured paragraph, but WordPress seems to have eaten the rest

There are more…these are just some of the gems.  The internet is an amazing place.  I wonder what these folks thought of my blog…

And now, for something completely different

    I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found your blog! I have been feeling like a freak of nature this week after being diagnosed with breast cancer at 28. I go into surgery in a week for a bilateral mastectomy & reconstruction and then chemo for 6 months.

    I had a really crappy afternoon – had to cancel my wedding & honeymoon trip to the US, which included a weekend at the Coachella Valley Music festival and the band line-up of my dreams (oh my aching heart…) and it was such a comfort and huge pick-me-up to read your posts (so thanks :).

    I hope that life for you will soon return to normalcy and please know that your words will help me get through this.

      hey miss t! i can’t tell you how glad i am to hear that my little bloggy helped brighten your day up. that time – that diagnosis/right before-after surgery/pre-chemo was a probably the toughest and scariest time for me, so i hope you’re doing alright and staying brave and strong and know that i’m thinking of you! you are not a freak. you can do this.

      thanks guys! i appreciate it! p.s. read like a billion karen slaughter books throughout chemo, they were just perfect for taking my mind off of things – thanks for the suggestion!

    I just made a blog for my writing class so I felt the need to finally comment on one of tour blog posts and this is one of my favorites. Also, I’m watching all your Mad Men dvds over my spring break!
