"wotthehell wotthehell"

I just settled in to take a few moments of browsing before going back downstairs to watch The Mentalist (I have a weakness for smirky Australians playing Americans, although I have no idea why); and decided to take a glance at the Sitemeter stats for My Life in the Quarter.

I couldn't believe my eyes.

In one day alone, my traffic jumped to 438 Visits and 628 Page Views.

Please don't ask me what the difference is between "Visits" and "Page Views;" the official Sitemeter explanation doesn't make sense to me. I don't have that kind of brain.

And it's only 8:30. There are three-and-a-half hours to go before midnight.

I decided to see what my Google stats were for this same period of time, and they claimed I had 1,246 Pageviews today.

And, no, don't ask me to tell you the difference between Google's "Pageviews" and Sitemeter's "Visits" and "Page Views." It's all too much.

In fact, all of this is all too much.

Who are these people? Where are they coming from? Do they like my stuff, or are they laughing at me behind their hands?

This is scary.

You know how I get all nervous and breathy in crowds.

Right now, it feels like there's a mob outside my gate, and I imagine I can smell the sooty scent of torches and hear the rattle of pitchforks.


Update, Friday Morning:

OMG! The final Sitemeter tally was 515 Visits and 772 Page Views!

I am presently proceeding to an undisclosed location. Please do not try to find me.


  1. It must have been those orchids!    sp

  2. The orchids, yes ... it was the orchids.

  3. Witness protection , again?! A wild life "In The Quarter"!

  4. Yeah, and, to tell you the truth, I'm running out of undisclosed locations.
