The Unbloggable Lightness of Being

Blogs are funny beasts. Back when I was setting up this website, I found a GoDaddy feature that shows what spiders crawl the blog. They are essentially in the background, crawling and reporting back to google, bing, yahoo, dogpile, etc. I just flipped over to the stat analytic page that reads the bots, and it tells me that google was onboard for 1 hour and 14 minutes looking for content on beavers. For once in my blogging career, I am speechless. Beavers?

I next clicked on the key word menu that shows the search terms that folks use to find (or show up) at this blog. And despite having never posted on this topic, 713 hits were generated last week over honey boo boo holiday photo. Wow, who knew? I’ll bet there were a lot of disappointed Honey Boo Boo fans. Well, now you guys have something to look at, this post!

One last note, if you all ever want to turn any post into an open thread, you have my thumb’s-up. I’ve said it before, I’ll be at work and come home to thirty comments and it is a neat surprise. Don’t ever feel like you are highjacking the blog. We are a community of sorts. Me, the beaver and honey boo boo blogger and y’all, the . . .

The Post Where I May Incur a Wrath

At the risk of agitating you, may I present two naval questions from folks who probably watch and enjoy the antics of Honey Boo Boo:

Q: Will the navy accept me with a GED and several misdemeanors? My misdemeanors were for solicitation/prostitution. I do not know how many counts exactly It was over 10 years ago. I was 19 and a single parent just trying to provide. Do you think they would be understanding? I did go to vocational school and have a decent career at the moment, but I wanted to join the reserves.
A: No and no

Q: What does the navy do? Is it what people say that the navy is just sailors or do they actually get to fight in combat? Can they also chose their m.o.?
A: Murder people I guess…

Sorry. You will never get that three minutes of your life back. For those of you not sure of who or what Honey Boo Boo is, may I offer this little teaser:

The TLC network said Wednesday that it has ordered Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials focusing on its seven-year-old breakout star, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. The series airs its 10th and final episode of its debut season on Wednesday.

TLC’s Alana Honey Boo Boo Thompson

The show centers around Thompson, her mother June Shannon and their rural Georgia family and has been a breakout hit for the cable network. Thompson’s outgoing personality and catchphrases like “A dolla makes me holla” made her a star. . .

Once again, an apology is in order. Sorry. . .
