Oh, you crazy Googlers!

Ok, I'm all for people reading my blog and finding it on Google and such, but this is ridiculous.

In the last two days I've had over thirty referrals from Google searches for a certain African-American themed film starring a man dressed as a woman (no, not Big Momma's House 2, the other one). I made the unfortunate decision to sarcastically say that I was really excited to see the movie, and now people are checking out my blog because of it and, frankly, I can't imagine they are enjoying the experience.

I think it's really funny when people find my blog on Google searches because I once wrote all six of the words in their search phrase. And I've Googled things before and found off-the-wall results, but you can usually tell when some results are not what you're looking for. So it baffles me why people are clicking on my blog. Maybe it's because I share a name with the man who dresses in drag in the certain movie with a Greek character's name in the title?

Also, someone searched for "A family reunion Pizza project use spreadsheets algebra". Seriously, some middle-school Googler was trying to cheat on his homework and he was an idiot and clicked on my blog. Why? WHY?

Oh, and here's the best part: This morning, around 7:05 eastern time, someone in Durham, North Carolina Googled "Tyler C0ates Montross". Uh, is there someone from my past haunting the streets of Durham? A long-lost friend / enemy / relative? I only know of one person from JMU who moved to Durham, and I don't think she'd search for me on Google. So, long-lost friend / enemy / relative - please, announce yourself!
