Post-Flying Post

So lately I've noticed from my stats (I check 'em everyday!) that people have been searching for really weird things and they end up on my blog. Also, these search terms don't appear just once, but multiple times! Whaaaat.

Here are a few examples:

1. the only thing i'm scared of is getting sucked in to the airplane
I honestly do not know why anyone would search for this. Although, after careful deliberation, I shall assume that they meant to search for this to try and find a support group online for people with a similar fear. I tried googling this to see what would happen and all I got were people on Yahoo! Answers asking how probable it is that their plane might crash, also a Mean Girls Move Transcript for some reason. Google images was of no help either since what came up were images of Lex Luthor, dried fish, Orlando Bloom, a star tattoo and what seems to be vegetable soup (?), among a lot of other random stuff. In all fairness, there is something related to airplanes: a goose-shaped airplane. However, the person/s who searched for this may have really just wanted to open up to their search engine about their deepest fears.

2. blue eyes falling out of an airplane lavatory, meaning
Now this would be really weird if this person was talking about this literally, since if blue eyes started popping out of the airplane lavatory, I would not stand there and make a mental note about going on the internet and searching for the meaning behind it later, so I'm assuming he/she dreamt about "blue eyes falling out of an airplane lavatory" and wants to know what it's all about. Frankly, I think it means you should lay off the ice cream and pickles before bed, darling.

3. something bit me under the water and swelled
So something bit you underwater and it suddenly swelled up like a balloon? Err. It was probably a pufferfish. I've always wanted to have a taste. They're extremely poisonous and it's always a gamble if you decide to sample it, prepared only by a certified Japanese chef, of course.

4. people sitting on the toilet
Ah, someone searched for this 6 times over the course of a couple of days. He/she really seemed to be very determined to search for people sitting on the toilet. So, due to "popular demand', here's a person sitting on the toilet drawn just for you:

Thank me later, Anon-who-searches-for-people-sitting-on-the-toilet.

In other news, I flew out yesterday and am now back in Jeddah after another 16 hour flight all in all. I have about a month left of my summer vacation and I'm going to make the most of it. For now, I need some well-deserved shuteye.



  1. That's hilarious. People sitting in the toilet why would people search for that? haha.. the drawing is cute though.

    What tool are you using to get these? I tried to install google analytics in my blog because I know it will give me something like this but it doesn't work. If you're using the same tool. Care to give me a tip?

    You're in Jeddah now? Is that where you are based. You just visited the Philippines?I have too many question. I just want to get to know you more. :)

  2. Hahaha. The searches say it all. Your blog is funny.

    loving all the search terms. TOO GOOD.
    you're back in Jeddahhhhhhh HOW DOES IT FEEL?!

  4. All of these disturbed me a little bit.
    Especially the second one.
    ... who searches that on google? I mean seriously?

    And I love the guy sitting on the toilet.
    I hope it brings the people who search "people sitting on the toilet" to your blog. [:

  5. You're too much.
    As already stated, your artistic skills were a nice touch.
    Hopefully the lurker in question sees this post so that your efforts won't have been in vain.

    Never thought I'd see "Lex Luthor, dried fish & Orlando Bloom" together in the same sentence, but there you go!

  6. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! (This is great, very amusing.)

    I have very strange searches in my stats, considering I use the word "penis" a lot in my blog posts.

  7. x P iGet that too ~ lmao
    iHad a comment about penis enlargement posted a few days ago.

  8. @mayen: i know. perhaps that person has his or her own reasons for searching for people sitting on the toilet. haha. to get my stats, i just go to my dashboard and click on the stats tab. it's on the rightmost part, opposite the new post button. as for Jeddah, well, this is where i grew up. my parents are OFW's here and this is where they raised me and my brother. but i wanted to go to college in the Phil. so now that i study in the Phil, i visit them every time i get a break from college. :)

    @Miss Chievous: tee-hee. thanks! :)

    @Furree Katt: i didn't want him or her to come up empty-handed. haha. also, it feels great! woo!

    @Jodie-Ann: :D

    @Fiona: it's funny when you get to see what people are searching for when they think no-one's watching. haha. also, i really hope they get here, too. i wouldn't want my efforts to be in vain. xD

    @Martin Alexander: why, thankyou. haha. and i know, i really hope he/she sees this!

    @That Blond Guy: thanks. also, well, i guess that explains it. xD

    @iZaynab: lolwhat. xD

  9. blue eyes falling out of an airplane lavatory

    it was on "the big bang theory" season 2 - so i wanted to know what they meant by it.

  10. @Anonymous: ohh. i see. that clears things up, then! :D now, if only the person who searched for people sitting on toilets would comment why he/she did so. perhaps there was a valid reason? haha.


do you have anything to say about the sugar-fueled shizz i have hastily posted above? don't hesitate! comment now!

(i just realized how infomercial-y that sounded. but hey, don't let that stop you from commenting!)
