Hit Me Baby One More Time!

War Bunny, Monkey, Jelly - Burning Man 2011 - photo by Ponder

It's a BIG day for monkey me.  Green Monkey Tales has reached 50,000 hits. 
Translation, I didn't quit.

Ongoing thanks to everyone who visits, reads, comments, or just looks at the pictures.  
Even those of you who are misguided by search engines and spend 0 seconds here.  
It still counts as a hit.

I continue to be entertained by the search engine activity.  Thanks to the counter behind "VIEW MY STATS" I know that my mother and two sisters don't read me.  They live in Vermont.  No one in Vermont reads my blog.  

I am a bit concerned that Homeland Security has visited my site twice in less than a week. 

Unless... they are after the pervert that searched "12 year old naked boy" and was misdirected to my site.

Or... maybe they're after me because I searched "12 year old naked boy" to see if it would take me to my site.  

For those of you who are not bloggers, we BLOGGERS use keywords to label our posts.  For example, this post is labeled "50,000 hits."  Because of the word "hits" I might get a few dominatrix or submissive fetish followers.  

Here's a piece of useless information,

The number one label that generates activity on my blog is NOT...

burning man
bird porn


Mr. Magoo makes a brief appearance in a post entitled Happy Whee Day.  The post is over a year old and still it generates the most hit.   WHAT is the fascination behind Mr. Magoo?

Even someone from the Alaska State Government, in Anchorage, Alaska, using a WindowsXP operating system, googled Mr. Magoo and landed on Green Monkey.

The other day, I was in Manhattan sipping wine and writing in an outdoor cafe. It was a beautiful fall day. Everyone was extra chatty and I was perfectly content by myself... writing

Writing is so cool.  

It helps me focus on what's in front of me.  It helps me focus on what's inside me.  And sometimes, it helps me feel good about me.  Especially when you read me.  

Thank you!  


Trivia question: 
What is Mr. Magoo's first name? 


  1. Ummm, I guess it's not Mr?
    Congratulations on 50,000 hits :-)

  2. Mr Magoo has a first name? And hits from homeland, that's the big time (as long as it's not in the big house).

  3. haha THE MAN is coming after you, watch out for the black helicopter, heck maybe I shouldn't even comment, you might send them after me..haha

    It's quite funny to see some of the ways people find your blog and quite disturbing what some will type in search engines.

  4. Someone need to tell Sarah Palin to stop searching out Mr. Magoo online.

    Didn't they teach her anything in Washington?

  5. And it's Quincy.

    Which oddly enough is one of the bizzare useless facts I have stored in the roledex of my brain. :)

  6. Quincy Magoo! Julianna, my husband is the king of useless information. Curious if he knows.

  7. Congrats, keep it up... 1,000,000 is right around the corner!

  8. May the hits keep right on coming....

    and for some reason, I have this in my mind now.... Hit me with your rhythym stick, hit me...hit me, hit me slowly, hit me quick!! Hit me hit me hit me!!!!!!

  10. Homeland security is looking for ways to spend their year end budget, they are looking for 50,000 murkins. :) (I hope I'm remembering what you called them)
