Sally Field Camel Toe (Subtitle: So I Googled)

Still can't write my blog on my iPad.  I suspect there's some sort of Google vs. Apple conspiracy going on.  Blogspot was aquired by Google at some point and now suddenly I can't use my Apple product to compose and publish on Blogspot... 

Similarly, I used to have a site meter on my blog that tracked the number of visitors and other information and it suddenly crapped out on September 24, around the same time people started asking the Internet Gods (in vain) what the Blogspot error code I am now receiving (bx-g90x6h) means.  Hmm...coincidence?

Probably.  :)

I emailed Site Meter, the host of my site meter (natch), about the problem and received an email saying my email had been received and would be handled post haste! 

And then several days went by.

And then a week or two went by.

And then I remembered to check Site Meter and saw that nothing had changed.  I responded to the customer service email and received one of those Mailer-Daemon bounce back emails. So I googled my problem (the irony!) and discovered that many people were posting a similar problem around the same time and that they had all received the same email I did, only to have no further action taken.

Wah wah...

I've since given up on Site Meter and shut it down.  Which I realize is like slamming a screen door when the main door is already closed...

Never fear, I can still track some information on my blog, thanks to some new features at Blogspot. 

For example, I now know that of the top ten search terms that deliver people to my blog, #4 is "Sally Field cameltoe" and #7 is "Sally Field camel toe."  You were wondering how we were going to get to this blog's title weren't you? 

I was perplexed all around.  Why are so many people searching "Sally Field camel toe"?  Why are even more people searching "Sally Field cameltoe"??  And when on earth did I blog about Sally Field's camel toe? 

So I googled "Sally Field camel toe." 

I first discovered that google actually searches "Sally Field cameltoe."  Is it one word?  I would never have suspected.  You'd think that camel toe would have a space between the two words, wouldn't you?  Kind of like a...camel toe? 

I then discovered that my lil' ol' blog shows up as the 7th search result.  Not bad.  The blog in question is here:

The Aging of Sally Field

Lemme know when you find the camel toe.  It took me a second.  The owner of the camel toe is always the last to know.

Thanks to my best friend, Lauren, for providing half of the two Top 10 popular search terms on my blog and may she and her family please get electricity soon!  I'll cover Sandy and the Jersey Shore at some point, but in the meantime, please donate to the American Red Cross if you can.  ANY amount will help!  Go here ---> American Red Cross and thanks!

Let me just say, that I don't remember writing that comment, although I do remember the camel toe. And unfortunately, since I wrote that, I have seen may episodes of the Flying Nun because I have the power to transform my television into a time machine. I have found numerous channels that play tv from ages gone by...recently I have watched The Monkees, The Brady Bynch, The Partridge Family, said Flying Nun, Fat Albert, Bewitched and Charlie's Angels...still searching for Fantasy Island and Love Boat.

Mannnn, so jealous. Enjoy! And please keep exposing Berit to these very important programs. :)

I have to say that most of the time it seems that I am watching them and Berit is playing with them running in the background...but I do love the fact that by age four she was able to recognize Dennis Weaver as McCloud, George Peppard as Banacek and Rock Hudson as MacMillian...yeah!
