And now it’s time once again for everybody’s favorite topic category — Search Terms!
The big one the other day that caught my attention was “harris teeter carries root beer extract.” LIES! It’s all lies, I tell you! Maybe their Harris Teeter carries root beer extract but the ones I’ve checked here in the Northern Virginia area don’t. Nobody does. It’s impossible to find any. Which reminds me…I need to order some from Lehmans.com. I’ve been having a hankering for home-made root beer lately and Maggie and I have been too scared to open up the remaining five bottles from the last time we made it. Just a quick note here – if you go about making your own home-made root beer, remember to leave a good bit of room in the bottle and make sure you don’t put too much yeast in the mix. We made both mistakes and we’ve managed to lose two bottles that way, not to mention hose down both Maggie’s kitchen and her grandparents’ dining room with root beer. I’ll tell you now, it’s a bit of a challenge getting root beer out of antique chairs and carpets. Oops!
Speaking of root beer, there was another search term that caught my eye: root beer wedding.
I don’t even know what that means. Is it used as a vital part of the ceremony? You know, the bride and groom, instead of kissing or lighting a candle shoot root beer off the balcony…Maybe it’s just used as the basis for the color palette? I have no idea. I’m curious as to why the person combined those things in a search.
There was one for “nerf gun cake.” Now, I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of cake in general. Occasionally I’ll eat a piece but that’s more out of showing support for someone than an actual desire to eat said cake. That being said, if someone made me a birthday cake that looked like a nerf gun? That person would be the most awesome person ever! I’m sure they don’t make cake pans that look like nerf guns, so you know it’d have to be hand carved and whatnot, like the folks on Ace of Cakes. Oo! OO! It could be make out of rice krispies! I know that’s a technique they use when they have to sculpt big things, like dogs. I wouldn’t mind eating a rice krispies cake that looked like a nerf gun.
Two people came to the site by typing in “fairfax town center joann,” and it kind of makes me feel bad for the people who are working in the store out there – if you remember, that entry was a rant. Oh well.
I liked the presence of “tights on the head” in the search term list, as well as “thumping under feet in car.” I liked the first simply because it was simple. I liked the second because it has nothing to do with the actual problem of hearing a thumping noise from under your feet in the car. Ha ha! Take that, search engines!
Okay folks, that’s it for now. I’m going to go take a nap to rest up for the culminating event of the week that has been “GRADUATION!” I plan to put up a new post tomorrow – something actually costume-related. It’ll have pictures! Woohoo!
