Aren't We All Obligated to Have This Post at Some Time?

Okay, I'm going to do a keyword post.

I've seen other people do it and it seems fun.

Plus, I have a busy day tomorrow and won't have enough time to do any research.   So,this way I can post what I wrote today (Thursday) on Saturday.   Then Saturday, hopefully I'll have time to do more research.

Here we go.   Some keywords/phrases people used to find my blog:

1. The thinks she is an Australian Blog.    Okay.  Let me set the record straight.  I don't think I'm Australian.   I WISH I was Australian.   And if Obama wins, maybe I'll be a little more okay with being American.   But I'll still wish I was Australian.  Or at least I'll wish I could LIVE in Australia.  But if I live in Australia, I might as well become an Australian.   I do sometimes imagine I might get hit on a head and come up with some type of delusional amnesia.   Then I might THINK I'm Australian.  But for now, I know what I am.  

2. This actress is known for being from Australia, but was actually born in Hawaii. Who is she?   Nicole Kidman--the actress I saved from murder in my dream.   

3. did huge heffner buy drover's run?   I don't know.   I'd like to know that myself.   I'm way behind on celebrity gossip.   Anyway, I hope he didn't.   Claire McLeod's house should never be turned into a playboy mansion!  That's just too much for me to emotionally handle.

4. Where celebrities live Julian McMahon.   I get a lot of keywords about him.  He must be mighty popular.

5. being safe in Redfern Sydney.   Don't run while eating a piece of hard candy.  You might choke.  That's my first piece of advice.   No seriously.   That's a complicated question with complicated answers.   I've been reading a lot about Redfern lately.   There's a lot of beautiful and wonderful people who live there.   But some of them have it quite rough.  I know life isn't fair.   But I long for the day when it can be a little MORE fair.   Is that too much to wish for?

6. how ngunnawal people might eat a bogong moth.   Is there a special way of eating it?  Like an Oreo?  Tim Tam?  Or Reese's Peanut Butter Cup?   Did I ever tell you guys about the boy in the hot tub at Port Stephens?  The kid took like twenty minutes to eat a Tim Tam.  I was so impressed.  I eat way too fast.   I wish I could eat slow like that.

7. julian mcmahon at club, restaurant.   I hope it was a fun club.   Personally, I don't think any club is that much fun.   I'm not into all that dancing, loud music, and drinking.   To me the only fun club is Girl Scouts.

8. Arthur Philip nude.   This might be the best one.   I'm guessing maybe it was another Arthur Phillip. They did spell his name wrong.  I had been spelling his name wrong when I first started writing about him.  Maybe I had missed correcting one of them?

I do find myself somewhat attracted to Phillip, but I'm not sure it's the kind of attraction where I want to see him naked.

9. Famous People Born in Canberra.   I still haven't had much luck finding anyone.   BUT there are important people who live there now.  Example: Kevin Rudd.   I think he's lovely.   I probably don't want to see him naked though.

10. What do Australians think of Julian McMahon?   Maybe I shall do a survey next time I'm in Australia.   I like him a lot, but I don't like Nip/Tuck.   But I'm American so I guess my opinion doesn't count here.   Now if I hit my head and think I'm Australian, maybe I shall count.   Well, at least in MY mind I will. 

11.  Rachel Carpani nude.  I have to say that this surprises me less than the Arthur Phillip one.  Shockingly, I haven't had any people looking for Julian McMahon nude.

I sort of miss McLeod's Daughters.   We've been watching Eli Stone instead.  That's good,  but it seems to be a little less good than it was last season.

12. What do Americans know about Australia's past?   Interesting question.   I guess the average American would just think about the convict stuff.  Actually, the average American probably thinks Australia is Austria.   And I don't think that helps because they don't know much about Austria either.   Well, that is if you don't include what we know from the Sound of Music.

Nothing comes from nothing.  Nothing ever could.  But somewhere in my youth or childhood.  I must have done something good.

Christopher Plummer is so sexy.   Doesn't anyone want to see HIM naked??   

13. british view about pemulwoy.   They stole his skull.   Does that say enough?

14.  Julian McMahon guest appearances 2009.  Wow, they really plan ahead.  It's like stores that start selling Christmas decorations in August.   Last year, around September Tim picked up the gingerbread house kit they sold at Costco.  His plan was for us to save it for December.   Jack didn't want to wait.  

We figured we're Jewish and there's no need to follow Christian customs.  So we built a gingerbread house in Autumn.

That's about it for now.  

I hope the Australians had a good time avoiding the American custom of trick-or-treating.

I hope the Americans don't eat too much high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated fats.

I hope those of you in the other countries have a lovely day.  

Seriously.   The truth?

I love all of you who are reading this.    So....thank you.  


  1. I'm not sure how I found your blog but I'm really glad that I did, it's a great read :)

  2. Louise,

    Thank you SO much : ) I'm glad you found me.

  3. Arthur Phillip nude ??!!
    Lordy, having brain farts at the mental images! LOL

  4. I live in Redfern. It's not bad, really. At least not the part I live in. It's leafy and quiet but close to Surry Hills noise. It's quite cool, actually.

    I'm slightly disturbed by the image of the boy in a hot tub in Port Stephens taking 20 minutes to eat a Tim Tam. That's what we call hottubtimtamweirdness.

  5. Jayne: Hey. Don't knock him until you tried him ; )

    Lee: I guess the boy in the hot tub could be seen as disturbing. The whole hot tub thing was weird in itself. The pool was a bit too cold to swim in so it seemed everyone would hang out in the hot tub. It would get pretty crowded at times. The sad thing is it wasn't hot. It was mostly lukewarm. And sometimes the most exciting thing was watching a child eating a Tim Tam slow.

    I've heard Redfern is fairly safe. I guess it depends on who you are and what street you live on.

  6. Trick or treating didn't exist in Australia until four or five years ago.

    We suffered it big time where we used to live in country Victoria.

    We had one caller last year in Kalgoorlie and nothing this year in Mount Gambier.

  7. I think these posts are a crack up!

    it's interesting to have a look and a giggle at the paths others take to find us lol

  8. lol i've enjoyed reading your blog and will be back. Found you through NaBloPoMo which I am doing for the first time this month! Don't know that I will last the distance, but will give it a go! A fair dinkum go - because I'm Australian :) lol

  9. ...i shouldn't be reading right now but this post was hilarious! I still have no idea who julian mcmahon is but the amount of times you mention the guy I feel ignorant if I don't wiki who he is one day!

    keyword searches can be hilarious- the FUNNIEST one I noticed so far on mine was "slippers steve erkel wore on family matters"(!!)

    generally though it tends to be people looking for "cool new words" or "new words for cool" with mine...I guess I know one more reason why you love Julian McMahon like you do (whoever the hell he is LOL)

    BTW I think you Yankees Halloween Tradition is great fun- I wish we had carved pumpkins lit with candles and kids in creative costumes here instead of all the commercialised Christmas crap!

  10. Michael:

    We had NO trick or treaters last night! We had finally convinced our son to let us open the door to people with the potential of having scary costumes. And then no one came!
    We ended up going to my parent's house since they said they had tons of people coming. But once we got there, hardly any people came.

    I might as well move to Australia since I was thinking the one benefit of living in America is we love Halloween. But obviously, that's just not true anymore.

    Bettina: I love these posts too. I'm trying to remember if you've done one.....

    mscherrylane: Hey, I think I had only one post about McMahon. But for some reason people keep coming to that blog post when they search for his name. They never stick around though so I guess I'm not telling them what they wanted to hear.

    We have commercialized Halloween AND Christmas. Oh and Easter and Valentines Day as well!! We got it all here in America.

    I used to love Halloween. But now I'm sick of the very commercialized aspects. The expensive costumes and big bags of candy. The plastic Halloween decorations. I like the more handmade/creative stuff. Too bad I'm horrible at all that. But we went to our friend's house yesterday and they had a lot of awesome handmade stuff.

  11. Cathy,

    I'm doing the NaBloPoMo too for the first time this month!!

    I'm going to go and check out your blog now!!

  12. mscherrylane,

    Totally forgot to comment on your Steve Urkel thing!!! So, did you really mention Steve Urkel on your blog???

    I sometimes have keywords that have NOTHING to do with my blog. I'm not quite sure why these people are told to go to my blog. I'm thinking maybe it's something that was said on the blogroll???
