All’s quiet on the ovarian front, but I wanted to make a small update anyway.

Two days ago, I received a package in the mail.  Inside were these adorable earrings–little needle felted nests with beads that look like bird eggs inside.  They were from my friend and old boss, Christine, who makes and sells jewelry as her hobby.  She included a handmade card congratulating me on another successful egg retrieval.  I can’t wait to wear them to my next appointment!   I absolutely love everything she churns out, so here’s a plug for her business, The Venerable Bead.  More of her stuff can be found at  Check it out!

I couldn't take a picture of the actual earrings, but they look like the one on the right.

I seem to be on a roll here, so I’m going to plug the other site that has my celebrity endorsement.

My sister and her friend Kelly are both moms and also middle school teachers.  Since they live and teach in California, their teaching jobs are constantly in jeopardy.  It’s not guaranteed that they’ll be hired back each year (even with tenure.  Ridiculous, right?).  With a poor economy and potential job loss looming, they put their heads together to find a way to garner some extra income.  The result was BooBoo and Norm.  They produce handmade baby items–tummy time mats, headbands, diaper bags, hats, and more.  All items are hand knit or sewn, and designed with the modern mommy in mind.  You won’t find any pastel blue or pink here.  You can check out their shop here. Their shop is still being updated, but you can find photos of all their products here. They take custom orders too, making it easy to customize a gift for a baby shower or other event.

Their custom sewn banners are my favorite.

That’s all the advertisement I have for today, so I’ll move on to what you’ve all been waiting for.  I know your minds have been plagued–wondering if that picture of Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes I posted a while back was successful in bringing more people to my blog.  Well, plague yourselves no longer!

The results of my experiment were, in a word, a big fat “no.”  But I thought you might enjoy seeing stats on what search terms have been bringing people here.  Some highlights:

“mcgriddle”  267 views
“mcgriddles” 58 views

Those are the two top hitters.  The list continues on from there, most terms producing only 1 to 3 views.  Some more highlights:

“horrable food”
“zinger medical jargon”
“is speed in cough syrup”
“with you while you pee”
“cough syrup as speed”
“ look after your own person” <—not sure what they’re trying to find there.

That last one intrigued me, so I decided to see if there was such a thing as an  Turns out there is, and the product they’re selling is actually called an EggBot.  Before you google it for yourself though, I present a challenge.  I’ll post a picture of the Egg Bot below, and see if you can guess its function.  I don’t have any prizes or anything;  I just want to be entertained.  If you want a laugh, be sure to check out the “order” page and check out the price.

Pew pew pew!
