I know you’re there.

Okay, so I have Analytics. I know my stats…and I know that there are WAY more people hanging out around here than the comments would suggest.

(Yes, I said “hanging out” – I checked the bounce rate.)

So, I shall attempt to play on the sympathies of you mean folks who NEVER, EVER say hello. I’m about to head to the doctor to have him remove the knives that suddenly appear in my chest each time I cough.

*hack, cough, hack* (This is the part where you picture me as Greta Garbo as Camille.)

What would hasten my recouperation, I have NO doubt, would be to return home and see comments from you, my lurkers. Nothing fancy – no need for a commitment or anything. Just a line or two.

  • Tell me if you’ve added a song or artist to your iPod as a result of hearing them here.
  • Tell me if you’re listening to music more since you’ve hung out here.
  • Tell me I’m a hilarious writer who deserves her own Nationally Syndicated Column, or better yet – book deal! (Then tell me you’re in publishing and are in a position to offer me a lucrative arrangement.)
  • Or, y’know – just say hey and tell me what you’re making for dinner.

But, for Pete’s Sake – say SOMETHING. We’ll consider it our own personal de-lurking day. The first day of the beginning of some BEAUTIFUL friendships. 😉

    I am none of the above. Although I DO expect you’ll get a book deal before I will…

      Pffft.

      The only book deal I’ll be getting will come in the form of a Barnes & Noble half price sale. *sigh*

    Hey!

    none of the above either…

    we are getting so close to my prize being available heh heh… (see Ri’s blog on jtnl)

    just kidding, Ri. You know I’ve already pre-ordered it

    …you know I love your amazing wit and music taste. The combination is as good as Anthony Keidis’ bod circa 1989… (or really any year for that matter) Keep it up Sister!

      Okay, I DID have a great reply formed right up until I got to the visual picture of a 1989 Anthony Keidis…

      what were you saying again, pookster?

      Well, nowadays whenever we need charts and/or pivottable, I prefer to export out to Excel and if necessary automate Excel. I find this provides for much better reporting using Excel’s resources.

      Thank you for posting a picture of your messy house! It looks just like mine (maybe actually it looks better than mine . . . depending on the day). I think messy houses are one of the best kept secrets in the world. I'm convinced that lots of people have houses just like ours but are too ashamed to admit it. So thank you for being brave!

    Oh, the visitors who don’t comment. I would say I can commiserate, except I don’t have many visitors *or* commenters. :) But that’s OK; my stuff’s still getting out into the universe anyway.

    Can you also check your feed stats? A lot of visitors may be like me; we read in an RSS reader but don’t necessarily click on over to comment. Just a thought.

    I have just discovered the Fisherman’s Friends. They are a group of cornishmen who are from Port Isaac in North coast Cornwall. They sing traditional sea shantys and have wondermous harmonies. You can find them on youtube —-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93wjsRsz1cI&playnext_from=TL&videos=_O771PFfWEU&playnext=1

    So yes – I am here and I am listening and I am sorry you’re peelywally – get well soon and enjoy the music my lovely!

      See, I don’t call you the “High Chancellor of New Music” for nothing.

      I LOVE Fisherman’s Friends! Stumbled over them a couple years ago when I found this vid of them doing South Australia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vUqeDPZZ80

      As usual, our taste is synergized, my dear. Now I just have to skip over the Pond and listen to some of this great music with you over a pint or many. 😉

      And, I’ve heard of this “Pioneer Woman”, but never looked her up. Rolling in the dough, eh? Hmmmmmmm…*adopts Dr. Evil posture and raises eyebrow*
