These Pork Chops Are Googilicious!


I have developed a mental image of our typical reader: a foul-mouthed, dirty-haired camper who drinks bad wine and keeps their pork chops in the fridge past the “use by” date. (In my head, he looks something like this gentleman here.) This reader profile, by the way, is courtesy of a Google Analytics report of search terms that lead poor unsuspecting Web surfers to micheleandtomdotcom like lambs, or perhaps pigs, to slaughter.

    Looks sort of like your Dad before he has had his coffee in the morning.

    OMG, is dad a “foul-mouthed, dirty-haired camper who drinks bad wine and keeps pork chops in the fridge past the “use by” date?” He is a reader after all… (This comment is a test to see how carefully he really does read! *laugh*)

  3. Futbol

    how much DO babies cost? and, more importantly, when will the government roll out incentives to jumpstart the failing baby-trade industry?

  4. Mamacita

    Operative words are “looks like”…I never said “is like”.

    *laugh* Futbol, you can see that the search terms on my site are much more pedestrian than yours — I’m the rated PG blog (well except for my Telo post, which was positively racy for this rag — jaja).

    On the baby front, well I can tell you, they cost a fortune! (I once told Zoe that we bought her on sale at Home Depot, unfortunately she was a little young for that joke and broke down crying…man did I feel horrible! She forgave me though. Poor kid, she has a kook for a mother.)

    So Dad has let his beard grow and is running around in deerskin — hee hee? He’s taking this mountain man thing a bit too far after going out and retrieving all of that fire wood!!
