2017 Year In Review

 

It’s 2018!  Holy shit, we’re more than halfway through the first quarter of the 21st century!  Time is just flying, and—it must be said—some of you are getting old.

 

Not me, of course, but some of you.  Which is weird for me to watch, but I’m trying to be gracious about it.  Me, I just throw things at Offspring when I’m blaring Aerosmith (kitchen cleanup goes so much nicer with a classic rock playlist—try it!) and he says, “This is Nirvanna, right?”  Then he says we wouldn’t have this argument if I’d listen to music less than 150 years old, and I remind him who taught him to love Meatloaf and Bon Jovi and we agree to a truce because it’s not possible to keep fighting while you’re belting out Living on a Prayer.

Where were we?  Riiiight… 2018.  which means that 2017 is officially behind us—yay!

 

And that means… drumroll… It’s time for me to pile together all those weird and wonderful search terms people used to find my humble little humor blog (I have to mention, periodically, that it is a humor blog, because that’s the only way WordPress knows; apparently you have to use the keyword, because having a humor blog is just like having a yoga blog—you use the word a lot, and that’s what your blog is about.   Humor.  Funny.)  Actually, I sorted them into an Excel list, and then picked through the rubbish for the humor gold, but you get the idea.  Here then are my favorite ways people found us last year.  Starting with the most popular Google result:

2016 Year in Review—Search Terms

 

I’ve complained in the past of my frustration with “unknown search terms.”  To be clear, this is still the bane of my existence.  Whatever you are doing to keep me from seeing how you got to my blog, STAHP! 

 

I gots to know!

Internet Friends don’t keep secrets from each other!

 

But I put away search terms for a good long while—mostly because my hair was falling out from the stress—and only recently looked through them again.  

 

I’m not sure how I feel about what I’ve found, to be honest, but I know filler material when I see it. 

 

Here, then, are the top (humorous) search terms used to find this blog in 2016.

Revengers, Detonate!

 

never go to bed angry, stay awake and plot revenge

 

Long-time readers may have noticed that I don’t consume shows on the same timeline as the rest of the world.  Basically, people have to nag me for at least a year for it to even get on my watchlist, then I need another two to three years of prodding before I’ll sample the first episode.  If that fails to grab me, it’s over.  Sorry.

Things My Husband and I Have Argued About*

(a blatant Mil Millington ripoff)

I cannot reasonably list for you every single disagreement that we’ve ever had.  I’m sorry, but too much of my precious brainspace is dedicated to never thinking of these things again, and to recall them for you would put all that effort to waste.  Also, you’ve had plenty of ordinary arguments, you don’t need to read about mine.  No, what I’m offering you here is a sampling of that special something that can only be found à chez nous.  To date, we have had significant, repeatable, long-running rows on such hot-button topics as:
