A New Gimmick For Absolutely No Reason!

Hey hey hey!

I've decided to once in a while freak you all out by giving a
stalkerish shout out to one of my readers who's location I've been able to pinpoint via Google Analytics. Don't worry...it doesn't mean I know who you are...just where you are. Comforting, no?

So this week, I'm sending a special 'hey, whut up' to my reader in Sussex, Wisconsin. How's the weather over there? Probably pretty bitch ass cold and you're stuck inside reading my blog. I'd ask you to send me some cheese since I'm betting that's what Sussex is known for, but we have kick ass cheese here and I'm ethnocentric. I think that term can apply to a love of state. Whatever.


Anyway, that's my
stalkerish shout out for the week. Cross your fingers and pray to unicorns that you're next...you other people, you.

I put my couch up on craigslist today thinking it would take a week or two to sell. It took three hours. So now I'm sitting in my living room in a lawn chair. One of two. And a full sized mattress with throw pillows. It looks...odd. But what can be done? We have several social events between now and move day.

Though the leopard print throw pillows on the mattress are a bit porn set-ish. Ick.

17 keep(s) me blogging:

I'm going to have you sell all the stuff I want to sell because your success is awesome. And you don't need Google Analytics to find me.

No couch means a great opportunity for yoga, floor exercises and generally firming up the tush. I give you permission to have a farewell pillow fight. So you've already bought the condo?

I've got a couple of stalkers too, in Turkey. Ages before we moved here, they latched on to me when I posted my public (yes, I remembered the L there) charity haircut. They have googled me dozens of time with some very weird phrasing and I can't imagine how desperate they must be, lurking on the site of a middle-aged mother. My husband keeps advising me to publish a photograph of myself on my blog -- that'd stop them. But frankly, it's kind of neat.

And I'd love to have sold my sofa that fast. We had to haul it down to the dump and I did my back in.

Twinkie said...

Mmmmmm mmmmm ... cheese! Yummy yummy cheese.

Rachel said...

Hey I wish I thought of this idea: I love this gimmick!

You sold a couch in 3 hours? Fucking awesome!

Stinkypaw said...

Yay on the sell! Just don't do like I did; I managed to sell things so fast that we ended up having to borrow stuff before we moved!

Wow, that was awkward said...

Holy crap, I hope you had the couch sterilized for them.

Oh, my.

Some rock bands are big in Japan while you are big in Sussex, WI. Enjoy your fanbase! Don't get all Metallica on 'em!

Tell Obama to get the economy moving - have him earmark that $300 Billion in economic recovery to Craigslist. People will find jobs in three hours.

Sarah said...

Betcha can't find me!

Kara said...

mum - it's easy to sell my stuff, cause i don't buy nice stuff.

goranas - i bought one! hurray!

mary - so is that why you moved there? so you can hunt them down and be all 'what up?' to them?

twinkie - that's how i feel about cheese too!

rachel - you can do it too! google analytics makes all manner of stalking possible!

stinkypaw - i'm drawing a line at the important stuff.

or - you had nothing to say, but you still had to say something. that's some classic or.

ax - awww, look at you quoting tom waits at me.

dad - i'll stimulate the economy by hiring some big people to move all my shit.

sarah - wouldn't YOU like to know.

Jill said...

You're moving? I guess the condo hunt was successful? I am so out-of-date....

theWaif said...

Dang it, I hate it when I'm late to comment on a post and I miss out on the comment response. Now it doesn't matter what I say cause it'll never be acknowledged so nevermind. Ka-kack. (Beckett-ese for "blurgh".)

Kara said...

jill - yes to the first two. no way to the last bit.

waif - looks like you need to reorganize your priorities in a day.

nato said...

I'm guessing it's probably me as your Wisconsin reader...I'm not actually in Sussex, but for some reason the IP address shows that..:)

I'm on the northwest side of Milwaukee, so I've got the cheese AND beer thing going.....wanna care package? :D
