You’d think that after dishing out only 21 new posts this year, there would be little to put in a year end round up. Ohhhh, but you would be wrong. I find that you, my friends, can be far more interesting than me. The 38,139 of you who have stopped by this place in the last two and a half years. The 50 or so of you who still stop by every day, even without a new post to lure you in. What brings you here?
Very. Interesting. Things.
Keywords, people. Those words you punch into a search engine when you want to find something. Words like . . .
*fake water spring*
*sorry pictures in babies*
*inside my body*
*wood mold powder*
Really? Wood mold powder? And please, does this seem like the kind of place where I talk about internal organs? Read my lips, I will post no sorry pictures of babies here.
To be fair, not all of your searches are quite so odd. Some of you are simply looking for *pictures of dogs napping*. And the ladies inquiring about *pregnant eat at red lobster*, and *can I eat chocolate pastry when I’m pregnant* . . . I feel you. I do.
There are plenty of actual food related search terms, although many of them often lead me to wonder exactly what you were really thinking . . .
*clay model of chocolate*
*who toast the chocolate*
*busted can of biscuits*
*ice cream sugar*
*chocolate and alcohol*
*banana boat we’ve got you covered*
*marshmallow peeps burn*
*chocolate pork taco*
But there is one in particular from this year that I must address directly. To the nameless, faceless soul out there who came to this blog with the simple phrase *is chocolate good on toast* – I assure you, yes, yes it is.
Best wishes for a feast-filled 2012!
