I’m frequently amused (and often horrified) by the internet searches that bring people here.  Today I thought I’d share some of them with you.

Apparently Google has become self-aware, and gets a kick out of sending people to the wrong place, like with these:

cleaning the house blog tips carpets  – You want tips?  Don’t have carpets.  Or kids.  We have both, and we’re screwed.  Sorry.

social mummy – I’m a blogger with spectrummy kids, exactly how social do you think I am?

valentine’s day – No.

social story – parents going on holiday – You mean without the kids?  This can happen?  Tell me how, then I’ll write a social story for it.  Gladly!

mummy’s curse bouncy castle – Sounds interesting.

on a dark halloween day mummy came in our huse – Okay, so there are lots of searchers for “mummy” around Halloween who were disappointed, but I’m still curious about what this person wanted.

my teenager is saying i want pudding – Can’t have her.

mummy is talking to mummy’s mummy in the motherland – There are few things I’d like to do more than talk to my mummy in the motherland.  Way to make me homesick, googler.

Then there are times when the bog searches are weirdly accurate:

asperger bashful – I don’t know if you’re saying that Aspies can be bashful, or that Bashful has Asperger’s, or what…but you’re in the right place, my friend.

rituals my cup of tea    how important is a cup of tea in the morning?   cup of tea and a biscuit – I am queen of the tea bloggers!  Is Tea Blogging a thing?  By the way, I’m taking “Tea Party” back.

beady eye blog – You have them too?

life in the foreign service special needs children – Yes.

mama bears shoes – Yes, but were they comfy?

paper cuts and autism – If you mean figuratively

blue fountain white house – Ooh yes, right place.  Still don’t know why though.

autism rapunzel – Vindicated!  I’m not the only one who sees it.  Disney, the world is ready for a spectrummy main character.  Or at least myself and another random internet user.

http://www.cubbywords.com – This should totally be a site!

mummy culture shock – Yep, I’m the bewildered woman you’re looking for.

aspergers trickery Yes, right?  Not just mine, then.

christmas syndrome homesickness – I just self-diagnosed.  Now if only I could fly back to Blighty every year to treat it.

pudding autism bolivia – Right here is why I’m glad we don’t use our real names.  Perhaps there is some other reason for this uncanny search, but it makes me want to take out a restraining order.

paersonal space invaders – Right here.

santadaddy – Look no further.

starbucks coffee karma – You suffer from it too?  You must know my husband.

mummys pudding – Yes, she is.

love distance blog  – I think I prefer this to Allergies, Asperger’s and Adventures Abroad.  My new tagline in an economic three words!

  1. These are hilarious! Sometimes I wonder about the searches that bring folks to my site too…I am guessing I get a lot of reptile-lovers that are really disappointed! lol!

  2. Love them! I’ll never forget the search string I found one day after blogging about a run I couldn’t finish: first time period cramps.
    Nope, not even close to my topic!

  3. Love this! I, too have been collecting funny and/or accurate searches that have brought people to my blog, thinking about doing a post on that soon.

    I believe you have inspired me! Now, if blogger would just get itself FIXED I could do d=something about this!

    p.s. – this is NOT the first time your blog has inspired me to copycat you. If it had been warmer last Saturday & I had been in sandals, you would have seen that MY toes were also done up in “light it up blue” nail polish, inspired by your Wordless Wednesday April 13th picture!

  4. I’m always curious about these and I must copy Varda and take a note of some of mine – but most of them are, unsurprisingly, weather-related!

  6. This is so funny! I must be the only one who does not know how to find out about the terms people use to find a blog… Teenager wants pudding and your reaction was my favorite! Lol!
