technical difficulties

my laptop has been cutting off in the midst of whatever i’m doing at a high rate, the last few days.  yesterday I backed everything up on my external hard drive.  I don’t know when things are gonna go south, but apparently my wordpress is a lil bit wonky too – not showing my blogroll either.  so..this wknd may be a new pc wknd.  yikes.  everybody’s diggin in my pockets.

a look back: year one

this makes 1

Can you even believe it’s been a year?  Last year this time, I was fed up with the writer’s strike and had been reading a bunch of different blogs.  I’d been thinking about starting one of my own for a while – not exactly new to the territory, since I’d been on OD for a couple years [but all that’s gone now], LJ for a few [still up]…bouncin’ around the internet, really.  I finally decided to take the plunge – thinking that it would be rare that I’d ever write anything anyone else would want to read.  And that turned out to be kind of true.  It seems, though, that I have my moments when it comes to picking entry titles.

The ‘hey mickey’ post is getting crazy hits from the number 1 search term: toni basil.  Again I ask – what is up? But I just wanna celebrate a year out the gate: I’m still doin’ it.   Happy blogiversary to me!

blog psychology

So, h/t to the Spectrum for the link to the Typealyzer.  This is randomly amusing, and apropos of nothing.  And, not to mention, quite different than my own results.  Generally, I’m an ISTJ or an INTJ.  I tend to switch between the two.  One time I took the Meyers-Brigg and ended up ISTP.  But apparently, my blog is completely touchy-feely.  Makes sense, I guess.  I don’t tend to get technical here.  Anyhoo, my results:

not me.  just my blog.

not me. just my blog.

The gentle and compassionate type. They are especially attuned their inner values and what other people need. They are not friends of many words and tend to take the worries of the world on their shoulders. They tend to follow the path of least resistance and have to look out not to be taken advantage of.

They often prefer working quietly, behind the scene as a part of a team. They tend to value their friends and family above what they do for a living.

I definitely DO value my friends and family over my job, though.  I only work because that’s the only thing I can get people to pay me for.  I don’t hate it, but I can think of other things I’d rather do.

But I am not a worrier.  Not for the world, not for my self.  Guess, I just write like one.  Oh well, interesting, anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

what is up with toni basil???

I get to view my stats and see what posts are being viewed most frequently.  And I get to see some of the searches that people do to end up at my blog.  For some reason, in the last 2 months, one particular post has been blowing up with hits (relatively speaking): hey mickey – can you dance?

It’s kinda weird, just cuz I wrote it back in July – when Toni Basil was on SYTYCD – and got 18 views then.  Last month the post got 126 views.  This month, it’s already up to 100.

Why are there so many searches for toni basil, y’all?  I don’t get it.  Is something going on with her right now, that I don’t know about?

(the number one search that’s getting people here is a google image search for toni basil…weird.)
