Month in Review(s) - February 2018

You remember, in January, when I said I was getting the hang of the whole life-balance deal-y?

February calendar in pink with the 14th circled, and love hearts in the corner reading 'love you' and 'kiss me'

Yeah... well, regular service has resumed. My life is back to Milo-Murphy's-Law-levels of randomness.

If you haven't seen Milo Murphy's Law, this is what I'm talking about:

(Warning: flashing images)

...I relate so hard it scares me.

Typical example: I had a scratch on my hand. Not unusual?

It was from the cat. Still not that odd?

It was because the cat was squirming, trying to stop me, from stopping him, from climbing into my big brother's sling (which he was wearing at the time,) which he has because he broke his arm roller-skating.

This is my life.

Add to that a bunch of personal cr*p, the flu, and an anxiety flare-up, along with the usual blog and work and life stuff, and this month was interesting to say the least.

But I'm OK! Still standing! Still ready to get back up and take on the effing world! 😁

(Update: So far March isn't exactly a barrel of laughs either.)

I only wrote one review again in February, but given everything I just mentioned, I'm OK with that! 😉

I have a couple more sections to my wrap-up this month, so check it out:

Mildly amusing searches

According to my Google Analytics, and my Blogger Analytics (which give different results despite being owned by the same company, go figure,) the following terms have brought traffic to my site this month:

"harry potter gets stuck in a cupboard fanfiction drarry"

Erm... that's an oddly specific search, no? But still, I actually have a post which covers just this eventuality, so happy reading!!! 😅

"red sonja wedgie"

😅😅😅 Yeah... not sure if you were looking for NSFW fan art, but I have def. discussed the downsides of a chain-mail bikini on more than one occasion! (Hint: I'm not a fan of that outfit!)

  1. I’m sorry February was just all over the place for you, Cee! Hopefully March will calm down a bit :)

  2. I love your Google searches. People look for the most random stuff. I hope you have a good March!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. The specific-ness really amused me XD . You too.

  3. We Are Venom!! I'M SO EXCITED YOU HAVE NO IDEA. My husband and I stalked the internet waiting on a trailer, and OMG. It comes out on his birthday!

    Another Deadpool Whoop! The second trailer was everything I wanted it to be-cannot wait for that one either!

    Black Panther! YES! Ant Man & The Wasp! YES! There are some really amazing movies coming out this year. Oh, and Captain Marvel!

    It's nice to find a fellow comic book lover!

    Do You Dog-ear?

    1. Ha, I'm guessing you're excited? ;) Lol.

      I loved the Toy Story take-off in the Deadpool 2 trailer! (I'm so easily pleased, lol.)

      Nerdgirls for the win! :)

  4. I'm hoping your March is better for you. Life gets in the way sometimes and I like your positive attitude! This is the second blog I've read about weird Google searches that bring traffic to a blog. Quite hilarious!

    1. Lol, we all copy Cait @ Paper Fury, who can be blamed for such features ;)

      Thank you - it isn't at the moment, but hopefully it will improve!

  5. I absolutely love the research terms that pulled up your blog for some people :P Hilarious!

    1. People search for oddly specific things! ;) At least it gives us some enjoyment! :)
