Woooooah! And I do apologize…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2009 by butterflyliz32

Hey people!  I can’t believe the number of hits I am getting on a daily basis, and I have been REALLY behind in updating!  I think I started this blog about 15 months ago, and I am closing in on 6,000 hits!!  Dang!  Thank you for stopping by… adding it to your RSS feed… sending me out in your company newsletter… etc.

I will be picking this up again after the holidays, and will hopefully have a few characters to put up on the character page!  Sorry I have been so slow to update!  Real life and the world’s easiest divorce got in the way.

In the meantime, I will tell you that even though someone has FINALLY put up a note in the “Ladies” room (and YES the quotation marks are sarcastic) regarding “respectful bathroom behavior”, the Peeing Mantis is still on the loose.  Hey Santa… if you want, I will be glad to reveal her identity so that you can fill her stocking with lumps of coal… or perhaps some toilet paper and seat protectors… or perhaps a new brain entirely.  Ooooh… maybe she needs Hooked on Phonics to see that note was meant for HER.  You are not on my gift list this year, PM.  Oh no.  You are on a completely different list.  Oh yes.  You are.
One more thing – I have noticed that I have been placed in many a blogroll, and I thank you very much!  I will be adding to my blogroll soon, so if you would like your blog linked through mine, please send me a little comment love with the name of your site and I will be happy to post!  We all have to stick together in this great big blogosphere!

Happy Holidays from the 4th floor!

Oooook…. Inculcate? Really?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 8, 2009 by butterflyliz32

What is the number one search engine term bringing people to the HellBlog?  It USED to be The Peeing Mantis.

Now?

“Use inculcate in a sentence” [enter]

Really?  Seriously??  I have had over 40 searchers hit my blog since I posted this post back in October.  I am appalled saddened curious about this.  I mean are there really that many people who are searching for this term?  I had never even heard of it before some wise guy at The Company pulled a thesaurus out of his ass and decided to show everyone one the worst possible word to put into a motivational strategic plan since “downsizing”.

I just had to comment on this since it comes up several times a week.

One other that made me laugh:  “Use apparently in a sentence”.  Ok.  Apparently, you are a moronHow’s that?

 

Post Script– Recently, one of my named characters has attempted to add me as a friend on Facebook.  I have not accepted yet, as I do not wish to hurt her feelings, were she to stumble upon this blog, which I am pimping pretty heavily via Facebook right now… not to mention I would like to avoid anyone at The Company learning about this until the book is in the jacket, so to speak.  So… thoughts – Do I change her name in the blog… OR do I pretend I never saw the friend request?  Comments appreciated, as always!!

Search Engine Terms – Finding what you are looking for

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2008 by butterflyliz32

I love the wordpress blog so much more than my other one – simply from a stats perspective.  It allows me to see how many people are visting, where they are coming from, and what they are looking for.  I love the search engine terms too, and thought I would share them with you, taking a cue from a friend.  So, here they are:

Peaing Mantis – I have written several blogs on my arch nemesis, The Peeing Mantis.  This is a woman in my office who pees all over the seat in the public restroom and does not clean up after herself.  I hate her a lot.  I don’t know exactly what the ‘peaing mantis’ does, except maybe throws frozen peas at people?  Not sure what you were looking for here.  Hope you enjoyed it anyway.

Why should a person want to mentor – If you are asking this question, mentoring is probably not for you.  Mentoring is a way for a person with a lot of experience (or has made a lot of mistakes and learned really valuable lessons from said mistakes) to coach a less experienced person.  There are many, many people in the workplace who should NEVER mentor other people.  I had a director once that everyone referred to as ‘Darth Vadar’.  She would be one of those people.  If people see you coming and they crawl into the ceiling tiles to escape, chances are they will NOT be asking for you to be their mentor.

She is the boss not over me – So, that would make her not the boss of you.  Congrats – You don’t have to listen to her.

You are not the boss of me origin– No clue, but children have been telling their parents this for ages.  I am sure it started when Caveman Dad told bratty Caveman Son to clean the cave, and it was all downhill from there.  But, bratty Caveman Son was probably eaten by a saber-tooth tiger due to an underdeveloped sense of “fight or flight,” so everyone wins.

Pearls Before Swine meow joke– I loves me some Pearls Before Swine (cartoon).  I am not sure which meow joke they were looking for, but if you come across it, I would love to see it.  My meow joke came from Super Troopers (movie) and is hysterical.  I would link in the video, but the Nazi bastards at my office have blocked YouTube.  But, if you have stumbled on to my blog through the cleaver use of search terms, then you can probably find the clip on your own.

Apparently I walked into the face of hell – Yeah… me too – hence the name of my blog.

I like my job but I can’t stand rhonda – Who searches for this??  I think this is definitely the funniest one so far.  Sorry you don’t like Rhonda.  Our Big Rhonda was super nice and a very good person.  She just had a very negative attitude and sighed a lot.  In a big, huffy way.

Susanne Gaddis – Interesting that I would get a search term hit on Susanne.  She is a friend of mine and I have been enjoying her classes for years.  If you are interested in contacting her, you can reach her at www.communicationsdoctor.com  Tell her I sent you 🙂

Prairie Doggin– I have searched for this term too.  Mostly in the Google images for pictures to attach to the blog.  Prairie dogging, in an office setting, is the popping of one’s head over/around a cubicle wall to see what other people are doing.  It is really annoying.  Quit it.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed seeing what brings people to the Fourth Floor, or the HellBlog, as I am now calling it in polite company.  Keep on searching, because I just love trying to figure out what you were really looking for when you ended up here.
