okay, that's kinda funny
last post on this site about push, nevada.

ever.

i swear.

yesterday i had several emails from folks who were having trouble accessing this page (could it be a problem with blogger?! noooo. that never happens.). while trying to track down the problem, i checked my stats, which is something i never remember to do. and, while i wasn't getting the kind of hits that, say a dooce, or a sour bob, or a jodi gets, i was definitely seeing an increase in traffic to my humble blog. specifically, a spike in referrals from search engines. of course, for me, two would be a spike...i never get referrals from search engines. never. so, i check it out, and here's what i see:

Google: push nevada clues

Google: +"MORSE CODE" +TELEVISION +UNDERWEAR +TELEVISION +"MORSE CODE" +FIVE +G +TELEVISION +ORANGE +FIVE +"MORSE CODE" +ORANGE [ed. note: welcome to the internet. glad you could join us. repeating the same search term multiple times does not give you better search results. you want "five." we see that. you want "orange." check. and you damn sure want "television" and "morse code." we get it already.]

get this: turns out that if you enter all the push clues into google, this is the only page that hits. sweet lord, these poor folks must have thought they hit the jackpot, and, instead all they got was some bitter chick bitching about ben affleck.

so, for all you folks who stumbled onto this blog thinking you'd found the key to your one million dollars...uh...welcome!...and...uh...it's over. it was just a stupid phone number. the game is over. you can stop searching now. it was just a tv show. but, you know, welcome anyway. come back and visit!

there's a whole page of searches listed, but my favorite has to be:

Google: push nevada abc sucks

amen, my friend. amen.
