School Daze at Change of Shift!

And it’s time for Change of Shift!

This time it’s over at Nurse Ratched’s Place with a “Be True to Your School” theme, hence the photo of these studious student nurses in place of the usual CoS logo.

Nice cap there, Mother Jones! Seriously – that’s an 8/10!

*****

Well, since Mother Jones had the guts to put up one of her yearbook photos, I’ll put an old shot of me up, too.

It’s the only proof I have that I was ever that skinny!

I tried wearing white recently and I looked like a walking drive-in movie screen.

I expected cars to start parking in front of me with speakers hanging in their windows.

If I had a nurse’s cape, it would hide a multitude of sins, much like navy blue scrubs.

Thank God for navy blue scrubs!

********************

Google is stalking me.

Seriously.

Every night, around 0100, I get 2-3 visits from Mountain View, California. Each night, 1-2 different pages are looked at.

I’m not talking ‘bots. I’m talking visits from Google HQ.

I’ve also noticed that my unique visitor traffic has been down.

No matter how much I write or what I write, it’s dropping.

So I was very interested in PixelRN’s troubles.

Have I been hacked? I was hacked a few months ago but Shane caught that before I was even awake here on the west coast.

Hey Google! I’m not a spammer or a splogger, m’kay?

    has RSS feed subsribership increased? That may explain unique visitors decreasing (I read you by feed). 🙂

    Oh, my, so that’s what the visits from Mountain View California is (maybe) about. All this time up to now, I thought I have a viewer who is just so loyal to my blog, no matter what I write because I was getting multiple visits from MV, too. Strange.

    I like your picture. Pretty. You still have that same pose. ‘no denying it’s you.

    Hey, girlfriend! You look perky in your yearbook picture. Were we ever really that young?

    One when I was putting a lot of links on my blog I got a message that the blogger folks had to check my site before I could put anything else on. It was blocked for 2 days. They must have a lot of different language people (I write in Dutch).

    Search seems to be down in general. I don’t think that many people are searching the internet as much as they have been.

    You have a great site, and a dedicated fan based. Traffic may pick up when the economy gets better.
