Reports of my death... ah, you know...

According to our sitemeter, someone in the US (AOL doesn't give locations) came to the Disability Studies blog tonight with the search string "Penny L. Richards' death." And stayed for almost 3 minutes, so they weren't just clicking around. I certainly hope they didn't find what they were looking for, with that phrase.

One possible explanation is that there's a romance writer who uses the pen-name "Penny Richards," and there's a Canadian mystery writer, Linda L. Richards, whose most recent book is called "Death was the Other Woman"--maybe the searcher combined the two authors' names by mistake, and was looking for the novel?

It might also be a genealogist or historian looking for a death date or an obituary--I've been known to search names with "obituary" or "died," when looking for a quick confirmation of a date.

Or maybe one of my students is hoping for a last minute reprieve from submitting a course paper? Sorry, they're still due Monday morning.

(
I figure by posting this, I've recorded the search for posterity, anyway. And now back to our usual programming.)

Yikes!

I love it when Kay posts searches that come in on The Gimp Parade - it's amazing what strings of words searched I find on A Different Light. Every now and then someone who's read a story over there searches for it by putting in a few words that describe the story - which is either very enlightening or scary!

Yup it's all in a name! Take care.

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Yikes is right. It's weird enough to see you've been Googled. And I've made some odd searches from time to time myself. Glad to know you're well and still accepting course papers and all.

Ah this is just one of the things we love Penny for - rich hemeneutic insights into a few (no so) innocent keystrokes.

You should see the odd paths people take to get to my blog. I'm fascinated by this stuff. (For instance, Googling "linda stinks" brings you to me. Bizarre!) It's fun, also, to see how they get to my site. So... umm... thanks for the link!

The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price. Moreover, cell phones are the representative of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .

Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones wholesale in the current financial crisis.
