How you found me, part 1
Some searches that have led people to this blog are below. (And, yes, this is what people like me do in the middle of the night instead of sleeping.) I'm calling this "part 1" in case I ever feel the need to continue the series.
- "To wear a sheitel or not" led to this. The same search led to this, which is much more interesting.
- More on sheitlach... Someone in St. Paul, MN was searching for "how much does it cost to dye a sheitel" twice (!) in the middle of the night, using Google, and came up with this. These kinds of searches illustrate how inefficient many Google searches are, because of extraneous words used in the search. For example, my posts from March 2005 would not have told this Minnesotan how much it costs to die a sheitel. The same search would lead you to the equally useless (for this purpose) Tzivos Hashem's Official Jewish Songbook with a song about the "callah [sic] lady" who declares that baking challah is a mitzvah1 (really? I'd like to "see that inside," as they say) and sings:
"...But my sheitel needs setting I know.
So I’ll just dye my wig a shade,
And I’ll give it a new braid,
Like the braid I give to my challah dough."
- Someone searched in Polish Google for "guterman-kibbutz halogen" (what is that?) and came up with this.
- Someone searched for "narishkeit definition" in UK Google and came up with this.
- Someone searched for " speech intertextuality" (with the space before "speech"), I think in Hungarian Google, and came up with this.
- Someone searched for "alg chocolate" and, of course, it led straight to me. Were they looking for me? I'll never know, but that is one good way to find me.
There is a wealthy lady
Who lives in my neighborhood,
She has a cook to stock every shelf.
But Wednesday night she yells “Hooray”
And she shoots her cooks away,
Because she wants to bake the challah herself.
You can tell that baking challah is her pride and joy,
It’s a mitzvah she won’t ever shirk.
