Search Terms: You Delight Me

Every once in a while I like to take a look at the search terms people are using to get to this site. As usual, they are full of wackitude. Please enjoy some recent search terms, with brief commentary appended.

benazir bhutto in swiming pool haha, what? Some kink I don't know about?

boy rotating He must be getting dizzy. How long has he been rotating, anyway? Somebody get this boy a bucket.

old cloocks back then I believe that they told time.

heretic's daughter why capital letters Gosh, I don't know! I'd assume that you were talking about the title proper, The Heretic's Daughter, the capital letters are because that's simply what we do with titles. Otherwise, I don't think that I can help you.

the difference between books and movies I'm going to assume that this is a philosophical inquiry rather than a factual one, because I hope that we can all tell the difference between textual media and visual ditto.

i prefer second hand books Me too!

lists of all books archive All books? A list of all books? Like, ever? Dag, that's a tall order, and I wish you the best of luck in your futile, futile quest.

what's the old kid show with the clock I think that The Polka-Dot Door had a clock in it sometimes. Or are you thinking of The Big Comfy Couch? And what I really want to know is this: is a search term this vague actually working out for you? Because, you know, I've got my doubts.

widow header All black?

qanta ahmed wrote a boring book If you say so. I liked it, although I have to point out that the prose is purple and neither Qanta Ahmed nor her editor seem to know what the word "belies" means, or how to use it.

is this sorted I'm going to go with yes!

this is really funny, but nice of you to try and answer their queries after all. have you ever seen any of those articles where they examine popular search terms in aggregate? here's one from slate, but i think i've seen others, too. http://www.slate.com/id/9949/

nobody’s latest blog post:Isn't this messed up? Leave me a comment about how messed up this is.
