Spring has returned and brought with it those soft, warm breezes that carry with them the promise of new flowers and an explosion of green as all the trees bud out and we move towards another warm summer.
I’m spending a lazy afternoon at home today working on the computer…. my window open, Goober snoozing in the sunshine on my windowsill, and the warm air tickling the side of my face whispering “Miyuki!!…. Come outside and play!! You know you wanna….”
And goodness knows…. I do so wanna play….. Carolyn is out of town, away for a seminar for the college to Chicago and has been since Monday. She wanted me to go along, but the restaurant was far too busy and I had to be there Monday and Tuesday to do my Kitchen Manager duties….. but I sooo wanted to play hooky and go away with her.
But… in my “cat-like” way, having some private “Me Time” hasn’t been all that bad either, and it’s given me the chance to catch up on quite a few things around the ol’ apartment and here at the Litterbox.
So what the heck is up with lil’ ol’ me these days? Guess it’s time for another “Diary” entry to bring you all up to speed…..
As usual, free time means movies, and I did manage to watch a couple the last few evenings, so you all can expect a few new reviews to come from this unexpected loosening up of my schedule. The warm weather has also kept my seasonal insomnia in full swing…. This year it’s lasted a ridiculously loooonng time. Just when I get a few good nights sleep, it returns for a day or so, leaving me restless and wired most of the time. Even worse…… it’s managed to last long enough to overlap this months… errr… ahhhh…. “little gift from Mother Nature”. Trust me….. There’s nothing less fun than being both tired, restless, a bit manic, crampy and cranky. In hindsight, it’s probably a good thing Carolyn managed to escape for the week. It’s also why I’m not heeding the wonderful weather’s siren call either….
However… it’s given me plenty of time to do some maintenance here at the Litterbox, and as part of that I’ve fired up my Blog’s Stat Press plugin to see what sort of Traffic I’m getting. As ever…. it’s surprising to see some of the results.
I’m constantly amazed at the number of people passing through the Litterbox from Google Search looking for such things as “medical+vagina” or “bad+vagina” or any number of other strange “vagina related” searches……. Somehow I never really thought this lil’ Catgirl’s ramblings would actually attract that sort of crowd. Hehehehe….and don’t get me started about how many “giant penis” searches find their way to me……
Indonesia and Thailand seem to head the list of visitor locales, but I also get a surprising amount of traffic from the former Soviet Republics as well. It’s heartwarming to see the number of hits on my RSS feeds, but how many represent actual readers and how many are simply search aggregators is unknown to me. It’s just soooo interesting to watch the stats collect…..
I’ve been toying around with the idea of trying some new themes here as well…. sort of some new Spring Window dressing so to speak…. so don’t be surprised to see some temporary changes come and go over the next few days.
Hmmmmm? Well Goober is flicking his tail across my keyboard, and that’s usually a sign he’s looking for some attention, so I guess I’ll leave you all for now and maybe see about snooping around in the refrigerator to see if I can’t rustle us up something yummy for dinner. Till next time out… “Meow, meow for now!!”
