In The Wardrobe Of My Soul, In The Section Labeled 'Shirts'

Something we don't often discuss on the blog is just how ruddy much fun blogging is. I always just kind of figured that fact was obvious, considering I update rather more frequently than once a month. We've all been to those blogs that only post every third blue moon, and we all know how sucky that is (except Hyperbole and a Half, 'cause that is one helluva hilarious blog).
One of those rarely updated blogs belongs to Mr. Graham Linehan; the way I see it, though, if the man that helped give us Father Ted, Black Books, and The IT Crowd does not want to update his page for a while, he is more than free to do that.
Imagine my surprise, then, when I check his blog this evening and find this image staring back at me from my plasma screen...
Now, I'm not claiming victory or anything, but I SEE WHAT YOU DID, GRAHAM.

Look familiar?
Reginald Kitty is not amused.

After looking over the statistics, I have discovered that Reginald Kitty has made 116 appearances on the blog since his first appearance on January 26, 2010. Not to mention that he's been in the header since April 8, 2010.
Like I said, though, I'm not saying Mr. Linehan stole my idea to have an irate sphynx cat on his blog. That's a totally normal blog staple. Totally. Normal.

Still on the normal scale...

So normal, the Cleavers do it...

Nothing abnormal here, folks!

In other blogging news, I also love to track how folks come across my blog. It's a thing for me, I can't help it. You would be surprised at some of the bollocks people search for. I'm still confused which I find more disturbing: that people actually search for some of this stuff, or that my blog comes up in these weird searches.
I have a list of my favorites.
Do you wanna see 'em? Oh, come on, I've linked to the places I think these poor folks were directed to!

I was so proud of that one, I screen capped it.

So, what have we learned from this experience?

*No one blogs quite like I do.

And it's probably best that way.

*People Google really, really, really weird stuff.
Fun fact: I have never Googled myself. I don't really need to, I know all about me. Now, some people, though... um, lets just allow that thought to fizzle.

*Music videos have never made sense. They never will, either.

*And -- most importantly -- NO ONE can replace our Reginald Kitty.

Is It A Subscription Box, Or Something More Sinister? (It's A Subscription Box. Maybe.)
