Interesting search terms

I think it’s fascinating to see what search terms sometimes lead people to my blog.

Some I understand, some, though, make me scratch my head, and I feel compelled to go to Google to figure out what post they ended up at.

Like this one, from this morning:

Where to find tulle in Houston

I’m really sorry to the person that visited my blog via that particular search string, because clearly I have no idea where you can find tulle in Houston.  I hope you found a source.

(And for the record, the post that that search phrase brought them to was my post about my journal quilt that went to Houston.  It had a layer of tulle).

Yesterday, this phrase had me laughing a bit:

are piano recitals really important

Again, I’m pretty sure my blog didn’t help with the answer, but for the record, I would have to say that yes, I think piano recitals are very important.  I think it’s important for kids to take the time and effort to work on a particular piece of music enough that it is suitable for public performance.  I know that I’m not teaching concert pianists, but I think it’s important for the kids to have a chance to show their friends and family the fruits of their labor.

Better get cracking, more quilting to do!  Quilts to bind!  Messes to clean up!

Yes, It’s Official

Wii are nuts.

And no, the boys don’t have any potential way to read my blog, so Wii are safe.

So, last night when I posted the previous post, I had just started looking around online.  I REFUSE to pay a premium — there are a number of places that you can buy the $250 package for $500 or more.  Not going to happen.

I found that one of the Big Box stores had a bundle online and in stock.  But it was bundled with extra controllers, and 7 extra games (6 of which you got to choose from a list).  Wii weren’t impressed with the list, and didn’t want to spend that much money just to get the console and a bunch of games Wii didn’t really want.  (But Wii considered it, because even though it costs a lot, you actually GET something for that extra money).

I looked around for awhile (and found several websites that are Product trackers — they check various online sources and display the status at each store — you can even sign up  for e-mail alerts) and then headed to bed.

This morning, just for fun, I checked the Big Box website again, and by golly — they  had a different list of games to choose from.  More choice — and better games!  So……Wii are done with boy-Christmas shopping for this year!  Woohoo!  Wii are the coolest parents in the world.  Except Wii aren’t going to get credit — Santa will get all of that love….

Last night Joe asked Mark point blank “Tell me the truth.  Is Santa real or not?  Don’t lie to me.”

Mark answered “Of course he’s real.”

(I promise to quit using Wii in future posts.  I just couldn’t resist.)
