Dear Readers, Where Did You Come From, and Where Did You Go?

For some reason, I have a lot of fans in Italy and France who read me frequently. Hi, Europe!

People at NASA, The Smithsonian, American Airlines, and the US Navy also check in with me regularly, as well as someone from the Information Services Division in Alabama. Shame on you! You should all be working, instead of spending time here! Of course, so should I. But seriously, spaceships and submarines are so much more important than me and my blatherings. Get back to work.

Today I nabbed a reader from "National Geographic Society, Room 272." That's cool. But it makes me wonder, what do the jerks in Rooms 1-271 have against me?

Someone at Tulane University in New Orleans used to read me nearly every day, and then, after Katrina, never came back. I sometimes wonder what happened to that person and what the storm did to their life. I hope it was a student who graduated and went on to start a happy adult life.

Here's my favorite. Playboy Enterprises in Chicago checks me out from time to time. Maybe they're scoping for a "Naked Women of Comedy" pictorial. You will never see my boobs! Never! Well, unless you get me really drunk and giggly. Anything could happen then.

Plsyboy is probably Fuzzy Gerdes, who is in their graphics technology department.

You mean Hef isn't scoping me out as a potential new girlfriend? Dang. I was hoping to be the new Kendra.

Sadly Hef hasn't been in Chicago for years.

Bella Rossa said...

Oh, I know. I watch "The Girls Next Door" at the gym sometimes.

Aren't you dead in your little underground prison by now? I thought you had about 36 hours to live, or something.

Dan Telfer said...

Um, I escaped in the time machine dummy.

Bella Rossa said...

Oh, right, that's how that ended. Well, thank god Kristen Studard dressed up in a bee costume and did some sexy things with a flower.

By the way, Kristy and Roger and I were almost screaming with laughter at your facial expressions while Margaret was reading all the backstory about you guys. And I never knew Scoresboard's first name was Bernard!

I have visions of Hef reading you on his BlackBerry, narrating your blog while a bevy of bunnies sits in rapt attention.

Happy sigh...

I always get a kick when geeks from Microsoft, Research In Motion and other tech companies read what I say about them. I often wonder what they're thinking. Then I go back to my tea, happy with the knowledge that we have the ability to know our audience better than any previous generation. Cool!

Bella Rossa said...

Wow, Carmi, that's so cool. And you're right, among the million great things about the communications technology we're lucky enough to be using, it is pretty awesome to be able to track and interact with our audience.

I get National Geographic Society, Room 272, on my stats all the time. I think it's a bot, but it could be someone who has a heck of a lot of time on their hands at work!

Jeff, I still get hits all the time for people who must also see it pop up in their visitor stats. I'd love to know what's really going on there.
