A few moments ago I was reviewing the analytics for my dot com - when what should my wandering eyes should appear? A giant spike on August 13, 2009. Big spike. I say... I say... I say.... It was big. This spike was similar to that bronzish monument up ta Promontory.
I began to wonder why.
First, I didn't post anything that day. Second, the blogland is at a lull right now (or at least it appears there's a lull). Third... well there's no third, but I was taught that you should list things only when you have more than two. If you have only two items to list, just scrunch 'em together with a conjunction. For this reason, we have a third.
(Can you sense that I've got my tail between my legs over my grammatical reprimanding?)
After some careful investigating - actually just clicking 'round the Google Analytics, I found that the spike in activity at rabidrunner.com was a direct result of Les Paul's death.
Running - Rabies - Les Paul. Makes sense, don't it?
Now I'll explain the connection. A while back, I put myself in the habit of posting a feature on every Friday - called it the Friday Flashback - wherein I'd research a bit, listen to some music, then type up a report on who I had researched and listened.
On May 28, 2008, Les Paul and Amy Ford were my Featured Flashback.
So, it's more like: Running - Rabies - Friday Flashback - Les Paul & Amy Ford.
P.S. Hobble Creek Canyon is aflame. Meaning On Fire. Does this mean I won't be racing this weekend? I don't know whether I should be sad or relieved. (Notice that "whether" was not used to reference something in the affirmative or negative. Therefore it was necessary to include the things I was "whethering.")
P.P.S. Anyone catch my Foghorn Leghorn reference?
