two things.

1. god bless my stat counter. i catch more spelling mistakes with that thing, i swear. today i saw that someone had found my blog by googling something about hollaback and street harassment. so, just for kicks, i went to google and tried it, just to see how high up i actually was (for the record, i already found it strange that i would have been up there in the rankings on any google search). turns out i was the second listing. the problem? it was because i had misspelled "harassment" twice in my post, and the google searcher apparently had the same problem spelling that particular noun, so he or she was directed to my blog so we could share in our inability to spell things correctly.

so if you're reading this, hollaback searcher, hi! i can't spell sometimes either.

2. i see more closeted and/or in denial homosexuals on "House Hunters," i almost can't believe it. tonight's episode featured a newlywed couple (i think they had just recently celebrated their first anniversary), and the wife was pretty clearly a lesbian. maybe not clearly to middle america, but clearly to someone with such a finely-tuned gaydar as myself*. i'd guess she was more on the "in denial" end of ths spectrum, and that in five or ten years she'll be divorced and living with a femme and starting her own home remodeling business. but that's just a guess.

oh, and another thing. let's call it...

2a. i think that it's only driving through central indiana that one could see:
- a billboard advertising "vasectomy reversal."
- a billboard for a gun store, featuring a giant handgun and the contact info 284-GUNS, perched high above a ramshackle building called "Stumpey's Diner."



*i exaggerate. my gaydar is only fairly-tuned, at best.

I was just curious what the area code was for 284-GUNS? Thanks.

Good luck with your spelling...and try the gaydar test on okcupid. Then you can talk about your skills. And there's a Virgin Game, too...

You were missed back home this holiday...

Who would do a google search for hollaback?
