My blog has really nifty analytics.
And I wholeheartedly admit- one of my favorite things to do is scroll through the recent Google/Ask.com/Whatever search terms that have brought people to my blog's door. I know, I know. I'm weird.
And, sometimes, when I scroll through the recent Google (or whatever) search terms that bring people to my blog, I realize that I could often do an even BETTER job than Google!
For behold- I will give you a list. An honest-to-goodness list of search terms that have brought people to my blog recently. You just tell me if you think I don't do a better job than Google:

"Find Nairobi Sugar Mama"
DUDE. That one is EASY! Here she is (Lees on the Go)! Well, and pretty soon you can even hit up my dear friend Tulip Girl, because Nairobi soon will have TWO Sugar Mamas.
I'm not quite sure why someone in Norway is looking for Nairobi Sugar Mamas... but I'm sure you have your reasons. Just please don't tell me what they are.
Oh dear GOD. Are you trying to give me some sort of stroke??!? Is there SERIOUSLY an Oakwood in Chengdu!?!? WILL I HAVE TO STAY IN IT!?!?!
Whoever you are, you hate me. WHY do you hate me? Why?? WHY???
"Mandarin Self Deprecation"
Um, yes. Right here. I pretty much have this one in the bag. And I'm sure it will only get worse as I start language training at FSI in November. Speaking of...
"FSI Chinese Progress"
My husband is doing really, really well, of course, since he's brilliant. However, last night he told me that's he's officially changing his Native American name (listen up, Donna!) from "Fits Crap in Minivan" (story here).... to:
"Looks Like Hell."
This is because his classmates are noticing the toll it takes on a married man with two older, homeschooled children (and a frighteningly needy wife... Honestly, why did he marry that unhelpful hag?), and they are constantly saying to him, "Dude, you look like hell." So this is his new Native American name, poor guy.
As for me and my future FSI progres, I'm sure it will be abysmal...but at least I'm going to try! Stay tuned...
"State Department Blog Roundup"
Oooh, this one is my spech-ee-alll-ee-tay!
Let's see... yesterday Lydia at the blog Here, There & Everywhere did the RoundUp (thank you, Lydia!), since it's put out on Fridays! If you want to host, let me know! And we're ALWAYS looking for audience/State blogger participation!
"Can I Take My Family on an Unaccompanied Tour"
Um, probably not. I mean, maybe your spouse/EFM can go, if they can get a job at that future post (see: Nick & Liz Go Global), and sometimes maybe other grown (adult) dependants can go, if they also get a job at your future post, but mostly: NO.
"Ladies in Need of Daring Adventures"
Sounds like a great Facebook group! Or maybe a great book title? However, all the ladies I know are right smack dab in the middle of their own daring adventures! For further info, check my sidebars...
"Asian Daring Outfit Public"
Stay tuned. In about a year or so, when I'm wheels-down in China, I bet I'll have plenty of these sorts of pictures for you!
"Bujumbura Pregnant FS Blog"
The blogger formerly known as the Bujumbura Pregnant FS Blog (Where in the World Am I?) can currenty be called the New Mother Leaving Soon for India Blog. Stop by her blog and wish her luck!
"Picture of Eagle Scout"
On my sidebars, left, toward the top.
"Diplomatic Security Service Register"
Making it through the hiring process sucks. Been there, done that.
It's nail-biting and just plain emotionally exhausting. I wish all applicants lots and lots of luck. The job is WELL worth all the pain and agony of the hiring process. Times infinity. So hang in there! Beacuse life gets a million times better when you get off the Register and onto the Class List!
"The TSA Sucks"
True dat, my friend. True dat!
