Your Search Questions Answered, Volume 1
Before I start today’s post, I’ll openly admit I’m totally copying this idea from The Good Greatsby. And I like it so much, I think I’ll make a reocurring series of posts from it. I’m sure my version won’t be near as funny and insightful, but I’ll give it a try.
Here’s the deal. The cool thing about having a blog on WordPress is that you see all of the search terms that people plug into Google, Yahoo, etc to find your blog. About one-third of my daily blog traffic comes from search engines, so I always see some wacky and random questions and weird search terms pop up.
So I’ll attempt to answer these questions–in all of their unedited glory–to the best of my ability. These are actual search terms that found my blog. Let’s begin.
are you there god it’s me margaret who first gets her period?
Why Gretchen, of course! Nancy’s didn’t count because she faked it. As a 35-year-old man, do I feel strange and creepy knowing the answer to that question? Absolutely.
is there a book called 101 ways to smell a fart
You know, if there is, I’d love to know how the author went about researching this book.
is it fair for a drama exam to expect you to qoute things from a book and reference the exact page and chapter?
That sucks. Why would you need to reference the exact page and chapter in an exam? What kind of sadistic teacher makes you memorize page numbers?
how hard is it to read infinite jest
I’ll put it this way: This novel will beat the ever-living crap out of you, but you’ll be a better person for it.

Absolutely nothing. Mrs. Dalloway throws a party. That’s about it.

McMurphy knows Chief isn’t mute and deaf. McMurphy’s onto him. He also knows Chief has the power to break free from the nurse and the asylum, but Chief is scared.
how do you read virginia woolf? why do i hate her?
Why do you hate her? I mean, I wasn’t crazy about Mrs. Dalloway or anything, but I don’t hate the woman. Pour yourself a nice glass of wine and relax. There’s no need to get all worked up over deceased authors.

We’ve procastinated on our homework project, haven’t we?
describing gone with the wind in one sentence
Gone With the Wind is a battle between Scarlett and Ashley to see who sucks more.
in grammar is it david and i or david and me?
Depends. Are you and David the subject of the verb? If so, it’s “David and I” as in “David and I believe cats are minions of Satan.” If you and David are the object of the verb, it’s “David and me” as in “An army of 14 cats attacked David and me.”

That’s all for this time. Keep those search terms coming. And what’s one strange search term or question that brought someone to your blog?
