Meter reading #8

I've been derelict in my meter-reading duties, but no longer. Here's how people have gotten here since Saturday, Feb. 19:

Three visitors from
The Texas-based blog's proprietor, Toonhead, named my humble little Internet abode the blog next door on Feb. 27. Also, I'm apparently analogous to Hunter S. Thompson, though not as bald or liquored-up or suicidal.

A Technorati search for "Roper Simmons."
Clearly a reference to Roper v. Simmons, the case in which the Supreme Court struck down the juvenile death penalty. It's been a hot topic in the blogosphere for the last week, and I wrote about it extensively here and here.

A Technorati search for "Williams v. Alabama."
It's been a big couple of weeks for the judiciary. Click here to get your fill of sex-toy blogging. But just don't pay me for it, because that would be illegal.

Google and Yahoo searches for "militaryescortm4m."
OK, why did two people come here looking for this?

Visitors from spam blogs for golf balls, Star Wars gear, and wedding planning.
What an unholy matrimony that would be.

A Yahoo search for "court holdings on hiring illegal nannies."
I think the holding was "don't."

Visitors from California, Connecticut, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C.
Finally, my dream of a visitor from Maine is fulfilled. Since I installed Site Meter, I've had visitors from 34 states, which leaves me just four short of what I need for a constitutional amendment. Come on, Mississippi, you know you want it.

Visitors from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Taiwan, and United Kingdom.
I thought I'd never top Estonia. Then came the Sri Lankans.

Visitors from The New York Times and the U.S. House.
Who said I don't bring both sides together?

Spam blogs are the devil. Can't they just delete them?

I got a visit from one about washing machines. I do need a new washing machine... but I don't think they have figured out a way to tell that yet.

I don't understand the concept of spam blogs. Do lots of people really click through Blogger profiles and find some hastily thrown-together site that consists entirely of "GREAT DEALS ON TRAVEL PACKAGES" to various places and decide, "Yes, that's the ticket! This year, I'm going to Nepal!"

Then again, I don't understand the concept of spam e-mails either, but people apparently make some pretty sweet cash from them.
