It had to be you. It had to be youuu.

Feeling melancholy and I believe I now have my first migraine in over 7 months. Nothing is helping it. I had to stop my morning run way short and I am almost out of Tylenol. It's going to be one of those days...

When I first started this blog, I was fascinated by my Stat Counter. It was amazing to me that strangers from different parts of the world would want to read about my life. Nowadays, I can look at the location and know who has been visiting me. For example one particular England, London, United Kingdom is Jay. My Tamil Nadu, Chennai, India may be Rat, Lavi, or Grrl. Selangor, Subang Jaya, Malaysia is Box. Melbourne, Australia is Penny Lane. Illinois, Evanston, United States is either me or Beer-quiche.

However, there are some people who visit that I have always been curious about. For example who are you Veneto, Padova, Italy? Have a good day Georgia, Athens, US. Cyprus, you have been to see me several times...thank you so much. Waves to Ontario, Toronto, Canada. Care for a spot of tea Taranaki, New Plymouth, India? Glad you stopped by Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan and Singapore.

As I reach a blogging milestone I just wanted to give a heartfelt and sincere "thank you" to all my blogger friends.

Now I need to go lay down.

Hey I get Taranaki, New Plymouth, India too. But I think that's a geographical fudge because is there even such a place?

something screwed up with the IP lookup thing in statcounter. i sometimes get "Staten Island, New York, United Kingdom".

How do you get such detailed information on your stat counter? Where do you look? I gotta check that out.

Sometimes my Neo counter tells me that I have readers in Hong Kong and even Vietnam. I have no idea how accurate that is.

Mo- I know! I tried to look it up and I think I totally confused google.

HWSNBF- That's so funny. I've gotten Ohio, Milan, Italy. BTW, what's up with the constant name changes? Running from the law?

Jay- Go to The info it gives for free is pretty cool.

Arch!- Thank you so much for coming forward! I HEART TORONTO! At one time, D and I contemplated moving there.

Apparently I have a dedicated fan base in Padua, Italy and Antwerp, Belgium. Very odd.

By the way, do you have one of those policies of not meeting people you know online? If yes, then I will not ask the next question.

ok, I confess...
I'm the dedicated fan based in Padova, Italy.
There are thousands of blogs out there...but few of them are good blogs.
Yours is one of them, that's why I keep coming back.
thanks for the lovely reads:)

Wow, I cannot believe I actually deserved a mention on your blog - the fact that I have been reading it everyday now for almost a month, notwithstanding. Keep it coming!

Game - LOL. Now our avian friend will most certainly spread rumors about me. I have yet to meet any bloggers in person but we'd be happy to host a North Shore get-together.

Rat and Lavi - No. Thank YOU.

Vig - At the moment I looked at the stats, I did not see Bangalore, Karnataka, India. You will receive a proper shout-out as soon as I receive my CD. : )

Anon - Buon giorno and grazie for the compliment!

Grrl - Feeling better, thanks!

Athens - Thank you! I'm flying to GA for the first time next week. Unfortunately won't have time to visit the birthplace of REM.

A lot of the time, the location in statcounter is wrong because it tracks the base server you log on from. Anyway, I also used to look at it a lot in the beginning but now not so much.
