Search Terms

inchoate oenophiles
Hooray, vocabulary! Oenophiles are wine-lovers, and inchoate can either mean “not yet fully developed” or “lacking order.” So, either someone is just learning about the pleasures of a good bottle of Gewurztraminer, or else they’ve already had a few bottles too many.

reviews on your dissertation
I haven’t handed it to my committee yet, but I’ll let you know in a few months. Eep!

pg 54 to 108 a northern light summary
Ugh, I hate searches like this. Do your own homework!

what is the honor gourd
Definitely the pumpkin. The pumpkin’s a totally upright kind of vegetable, not like that sneakthief baby squash.

there’s a firefly in my kidney
I… that’s… ew! And… ow! And… how??

    Thanks for the link! Also, a firefly where?! what?! That is a crazy search!

    Wow you had a great month in the way of commenters. Sorry I abandoned you! I took a bit of an extended vacation from blogging.

      Ladytink – Don’t worry about it, seriously. I’ve been absolutely terrible about commenting anywhere for the past two months, and I think I’m going to continue to be bad about it for at least another month until I get my dissertation handed in.

    Oh, the mighty Pumpkin! But that bit about the firefly, sheesh!

  4. May 2, 2010 4:10 pm

    I love the crazy search terms!

  5. May 2, 2010 5:49 pm

    Those are some wacky search terms. I’m glad you defined both inchoate and oenophiles — I had no idea what either of those words meant.

    “I haven’t handed it to my committee yet, but I’ll let you know in a few months. Eep!”

    So…..I take it I’m not flying out there in June?

    Oenophiles?? Never would have thought that was a real word (lol)
    I’ve seen inchoate in quite a few books, in my head it always sounds like in-cahoots. Yes I create my own pronunciations while reading :P

    • May 8, 2010 9:01 am

      Joanne – I’ve got no idea how to pronounce oenophile…. Oh-EE-no-phile? OWN-o-phile? Something else entirely?

  8. May 10, 2010 9:27 pm

    Always fun. I have some interesting search terms this week. Happy May!

      Care – So, are you going to share? Now you’ve got me all curious.

  9. May 12, 2010 9:08 pm

    sure, except now I missed the opportunity! Here are a few odd ones: “what happens in chapter 13 of the book?”, beware of the flying monkies, will mulch stay on a steep hill without.

    (They seem funnier when you first see them, I think.)

    Mostly, I get searches for people looking to read popular books to read online.
