search terms + the local spotlight.

by Janetha on June 8, 2012

in humor,local spotlight

hello! i am still in oregon. i am probably having fun! at least i hope so… we won’t talk about how i missed thrice’s farewell concert in SLC last night or how i am missing the first farmers’ market tomorrow. nope, we won’t!

i don’t have a guest post lined up tonight, so i decided to amuse you all with some more of my funny search terms. the first time around was pretty funny.. let’s see if i can beat that.

  • “popchips metabolism miracle”: oh my gosh! if eating popchips was all that was required to have a metabolism miracle, then i would be SET. i love those things! they may not reset my metabolism, but they are a healthy snack.
  • “do probiotics make you pee more?”: not that i know of…
  • “who is penny marshall’s husband?”: woah! there is a penny marshall? i have a penny and a marshall, but they are not the same person. actually, one is a dog. and they are not married. although penny is so super obsessed with marshall, she’d like to be married to him.
  • “kick in the groin”: no thanks?
  • “lake tahoe hallucinate mushrooms”: sounds like this searcher has quite the vacation planned…
  • “healthier boob job”: cannot help you there. i have no boobs.
  • “who is the girl you know who would go to jail for this picture?”: hahahaha.. this cracks me up. don’t even have a comment.
  • “hardcore sekzi pictures meals and moves”: ummmm… uhhh… just, no. no hardcore sekzi pictures here, sorry.

that was funny. how about a few useful answers to some of the frequent searches? apparently people REALLY want to know these things:

  • “cell phone cover”: i got it from
  • “fundraiser”: in july of 2011, i helped raise nearly $30,000 for my friend, susan, who HAD cancer. yay for the “had”.. you can read about it here.
  • “height and weight”: i am 5’1″ and weigh 127 lbs. penny is 29 pounds. randy is 51 pounds. not sure about marshall. we are a healthy family.
  • “mormon” and “LDS”: my family is mormon and they are very active. i was raised and baptized mormon. i do not go to any type of church nor do i practice any organized religion. i stopped going to church at 18. i just think it’s important to be a kind, honest person in all paths of life.
  • “gauged earrings”: my ears are stretched to a zero. i buy most of my earrings from peach treats:
  • “fitmixer”: i love the stuff! you guys are searching for it like 30 times a day. you can buy it here.
hope that has helped those people who are searching for the answers to those things! and if you ever have a question that you can’t find the answer to by creeping on my past posts.. just ask! i am happy to answer anything, any time.

SO.. it’s been awhile since i’ve done the local spotlight. this is a fun way for me to feature local utah bloggers. i have a few lovely ladies to feature today. you don’t have to live in utah to enjoy their wonderful blogs!

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More June 8, 2012 at 6:57 pm

The last thing I googled was aneurisms…all it took was a doctor to mention he wanted to RULE THAT OUT and I was freaked out and searching how many of my symptoms matched. Thankfully, we ruled that out but I had to do my research…Prior to that it was some crazy HTML codes that I haven’t found the answer to yet. ha!

Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning June 8, 2012 at 7:10 pm

I LOVE search term posts!! And WHAT- you don’t know who Penny Marshall is?? You’re kidding…
I can’t remember the last thing I Googled. I used it at least once today… buy my brain is fried! Have fun during your last few hours in Oregon- can’t wait to hear about it! (and don’t worry- the farmers market will be waiting for you next weekend! I had to miss the first week of ours too- but it was for good reason: BLEND :))

Kammie @ Sensual Appeal June 8, 2012 at 7:39 pm

haha the search terms are hilarious! I haven’t gotten any hilarious ones just yet, but I guess I did only start blogging 3 months ago. I did get a few “sensual banana”s though hah

Curlsz June 8, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Wait! Did you just “say” there is a Penny Marshall???? Girl!! Lavern and Shirley, League of their own, Big….

Krystina (Krystina Yogini) June 8, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Haha Penny Marshall is Laverne from Laverne and Shirley. Not gonna lie, I’ve thought of her occasionally while reading your blog.

Last thing I googled was how to do a text path on Photoshop. Figured out how, hated the way it looked, and gave it up.

Megan @ Weddings and Workouts June 8, 2012 at 9:05 pm

HAHAHA ahhh this post made me laugh so hard! I had to ‘seksi’ out loud before I got it. I just had a look at my search terms; sadly there is nothing as funny as yours (although ‘super ultimate high five’ made me giggle).

ali moll June 8, 2012 at 9:46 pm

LOVE the local bloggers! Always love reading about locals. Hope you are having fun in OR! Missed you at GPP tonight! My quads are trashed!

Will be thinking about you at the Farmer’s Market tomorrow!


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen June 8, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Haha, love looking at search terms. It definitely confirms the crazies out there! The last thing I googled was the difference between aid and aide. I’m still not quite clear on it…

Ellen M. Gregg June 9, 2012 at 8:04 am

“Aid” is to help: you aid someone who is hurt or needs something.
“Aide” is someone who helps – usually applied to a government setting, like, Congressman Gregg’s aide… :-)

Betty June 8, 2012 at 11:19 pm

Honeowner stuff, cause were now homeowners!! It was how to connect a fan! Scout and randy are the same weight! Dr told him he’s one of the healthiest he’s seen!

Laura June 9, 2012 at 12:11 am

I would love to be included in the blogger meetup! I blog on and off and would love to connect with other bloggers.

Hopefully there isn’t the rain that is being predicted for tomorrow! Rain and the farmers market don’t mix so well…

RainStorm June 9, 2012 at 1:37 am

The last thing I googled was “ballet summer courses in London” but I didn’t find what I wanted. The most common search that directs to my blog is an image search for running number or marathon running number.

Thanks for sharing some other blogs – I’m off to check out runnin’ late :)

Amber June 9, 2012 at 2:34 am

Now i’m curious about the healthier boobjob, what would make a boobjob healthy/unhealthy? Hmmm..

Alex @ therunwithin June 9, 2012 at 7:51 am

Dude, if pop chips did that I would be in heaven. My favorite snack in the world.

Ellen M. Gregg June 9, 2012 at 8:08 am

“helps you do it right”/”helps you do it right nh” Part of a jingle specific to a company in my neck of the woods. I (and the friends I was with last night) was going nuts trying to attribute that snatch of jingle. Thankfully, one of my friends figured it out this morning and texted me so I could shut off my brain (on that subject). :-)

StoriesAndSweetPotatoes June 9, 2012 at 11:39 am

The last thing I googled was a sexy picture of Tay Diggs to send to a friend as a joke, lol, but it’s true! ;)

Catherine June 9, 2012 at 12:16 pm

The last thing I googled was the chinese takeaway near my house YEEH BOI!

Just to say also, I have been reading your blog a little while now and I really love it!


Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) June 9, 2012 at 6:29 pm

I’m sure someone already must have mentioned it above (didn’t read comments) but Penny Marshall was Laverne of Laverne & Shirley and then she went on to be a really good director which shocked everyone b/c on L&S she played an airhead. but that’s so funny- I never thought of penny marshall and Penny & marshall! haha

meggi June 9, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Oh wow, I just posted about thrice. I didn’t know you were a fan! And the search terms were hilarious. Especially the lake tahoe one! I love that you featured other local blogs too! Pumped for the potluck!

TeriLyn [a foodie stays fit] June 10, 2012 at 6:11 pm

ok, fine, i’ll admit that it was me that googled “hardcore sekzi pictures meals and moves”. ;)

hahaha! Seriously eeew! I mean not that your sexy but uh….

<3 you! in a not creepy google search way.

Sara u June 12, 2012 at 11:01 am
