Search TermsApril 21, 2011

It's been forever since I did one of these, and because they always make me laugh, I'm listing a few of my favorite ways people get to this blog. I really love that the first nine searches are my blog, or my name. The tenth? "Dirty sheep." Huh.

Dirty sheep joke   There are several common searches for sheep jokes although I don't remember ever telling any here. (As a half-Kiwi, I know plenty though. I will tell them because I do not like to offend the sheep.)

(Aside - you wanna know my FAVORITE joke? This one can't be beat. I mean it. Try it. You: Say knock knock. Victim: Knock-knock. You: Who's there? *falls over dead laughing*)

I love my Kindle   Yes, I do love my Kindle. I love it on all its platforms: my Kindle, my iPad, and my phone, and I love that they all talk to each other.

Chihuahua jeweled cowboy hat  Nope, I don't know where to get one of those, but if you find out, let me know, mkay?

DIY sweaters look dowdy  EXCUSE ME? You obviously don't know me, nor any of my friends. Humph.

Durrow by Jodi Green   It rocks. One of the best, most worn sweaters I've ever made. Rav link here.

First morning thought  Aww, sugar. I don't know what yours is. But I hope it's nice.

How big is a radish? HAHAHAHA. That is all.

Man a go-go tube  Also, ha. Have fun!

When the stork dials 911 They get me!

In writing news, I'm working on copyedits for Book Three (actually, Wishes and Stitches, the third novel will be out after the memoir, so it's technically my fourth copyedited book! Woot!), so my eyes are crossing. I can't see errors anymore. I actually sent a text earlier that said "your" instead of "you're" and I'm still blushing. Gah.

So I'll sign off, and wish you a happy weekend. (See you Friday night at Verb for Keeping Warm, if you're local....)


I'm sort of local now! (Long story.) I will figure out how to get to Verb, since, duh -- that's important in addition to your reading!

I'm definitely adding the "Knock knock" to my repertoire. Keep in mind my best audience is usually comprised of 6 year olds - they seem to get me. My favorite, you're welcome to use it:

Q: If you're American when you go in the bathroom, and you're American when you come out of the bathroom, what are you when you're IN the bathroom?

A: European!!

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

I responded to your tweet earlier, but realized my stuff is protected. Your copyeditor needs to check her copy of The Elements of Style, because you are TOTALLY RIGHT and it's were, not was.


love: your friendly neighborhood copyeditor :)

My fave joke (mostly because my nephew told it when he was about 9 and HE thought it was the funniest thing ever):

A pirate walks into a bar, with a ship's steering wheel sticking out of his pants.

The bartender says, "Hey - did you know there's a steering wheel in your pants?"

And the pirate replies: "Argh - It's driving me nuts!"

I'm pretty sure our mutual friend Rachel O has bedazzled at least a couple chihuahua cowboy hats. You should let her know there's a demand so she can set up an etsy shop.

I had a lot of problems with Durrow. I had to frog it, because I hated it so much. I didn't really know what I was doing, that was the first time that I had never done saddle shoulders before. I can't say that I liked Durrow. (except that cable, I love the cable)

It bothers me too when people confuse your and you're. That is one of the many things that I am incredibly anal about.

My favorite joke (or at least one that I can tell to people I don't know very well) Why did tiger look in the toliet?

He was looking for Pooh! :)

Favorite Joke will be the new #1 on your search engine.

Why does it take so many sperm to fertilize an egg? None of them are willing to stop and ask directions.

Told to my mother and my aunt and my mother was shocked, shocked I say, to hear her 40 yr old daughter tell a dirty joke. Lighten up mom. But she laughed anyway.

I've got to remember the pirate with the steering wheel joke, I think I've already messed it up. Hey!!! I LOVE the title, Wishes and Stitches.
