Who's reading this thing?

It's funny to see (via Google Analytics stats) the more unusual web browser searches that have led people to my blog:

-Approximately 10% of searches leading here are some variant of folks looking for "Pizza Hut." I'm pretty sure I have never written about Pizza Hut, so I don't know how that happens (although now that I've written the word "Pizza Hut" 3 times, I'm sure it'll only get worse).

- One person found it through the search, "Where was the first earthquake in the world?" Huh. Now there's a head scratcher.

- Someone spent 35 minutes on my page while searching for: "how do drummers get back in shape?" I hope I could provide some valuable insight on the subject...

- Perhaps the most random: "slippery japanese movies stairs." Hey, I've made a number of odd google searches over the years- I don't judge.

- And these two make sense, but I find them kind of funny anyway: "the world of the patty" and "patty doesn't feel good"

I can't imagine how many pages and pages of relevant hits people must go through before accidentally stumbling across my blog in these searches...

Most interesting! Wow - how did you figure out how to do this? A quick look at Google Analytics didn't reveal much - but I shall learn and try it on my blog too. What funny, interesting info you picked up - and how interesting to learn of all these folks who happened into your blog. Crazy!

Hi

I am a random reader from oz! I found you from reading somes blog which lead me to someone which lead me to yours.

I totally fail with google analytics... It pretty much says no one reads my blog but i know that they do especially when I add the live feed thingy.

Anyway I thought I would say hi and and also let you know I am heading to your part of the world! I am heading to Hakuba for a week arriving next saturday, then a few days in Tokyo and then I fl up to sapporor and head to Niseko for a week. No where near you I know but closer than I am now!

I hit the next button too. I wonder how does it work? I have an Italian blog, but hitting next I never get to other Italian blogs. I've found some interesting Australian and American blogs though and yours:)
