i could join those people who have had japanese words tattooed on them, but the wrong words. where they think they have strength or courage, they instead have small penis and whore.

the only problem is that i need a she, first, and then she has to leave me. i'm sure i can handle that second part easily enough, however.

How do you know what your traffic is? Do you have a counter? Also, DUH HELLO kazzibee is on your friendslist! So obvious!

It's memorial day in the States.
But funny things happen sometimes. A week or two back my blog suddenly was swamped with Brits dropping by - about 80 of them, one after the other. I was intrigued and followed the line back to a (private) yahoo group - the UK chapter of the Romantic Writers' Association, or something like that. I have no idea what was said in the forum to bring every one to my blog and none of them left a comment.

actually, i'm pretty sure i've just been linked somewhere. that's what usually happens when the hits double--but usually on a weekend and on a public holiday where a bunch of the people who read this are at wiscon... it should be down, not four times its usual hit rate. the link hasn't come fromt he usual places, so it'll be interesting to see where it came from, if it surfaces.

How do you track traffic? I am a luddite...

Actually, I'm a web designer. So I should know this... but I don't!

i've ust got a counter at the bottom. it's an imperfect system, but it lets me know when things jump or slide. huge jumps in individual hits mean i've been linked.

i can't use java on livejournal, however, so i have no idea what they're coming here for. might be the x-men post, might be something else.

It's my stunning presence (or lack of) that's done it, I'm sure.
