Come on then.
Is it you?
Are you the one? Or, more accurately, are you one of the many, many who've come here by mistake?
Cos, see, I've just had an email from my Googlebot. It tells me things. Things about you. And it tells me today that a huuuuuujjjjjjjjjjje geet wodge of you, particularly from the States it seems, are here by accident.

I don't blame you for being disappointed here. I don't blame you for wondering what on earth this has to do with your search query.
But there it is.
The most common keyword search referral for my blog:
And so your guess is as good as mine.
But while you're here:
