On the road again soon

I've got a busy few days coming up soon. I'll be speaking at a UC Davis Cancer Center Symposium on Thursday (for which I have to get up at 5 AM!), followed by a weekend trip to FL to celebrate my college roommate's wedding. I'll probably get home late on Thursday and since I'll be leaving early on Friday morning, things are going to be a little bit crazy over the next several days...

My mom wasn't impressed with the quality of my Pocky pictures. She asked me to make it look more appetizing next time. I thought they were quite tasty looking myself, but alas.

I can't seem to focus on food today, partly because I'm still trying to unwind from my crazy day at work. This isn't much of a food blog today so far!

One of the most interesting things about having a blog, food related or not, is seeing what Google searches lead to your site. I've had many funny exchanges with Fatemeh, Sam, and Molly about crazy search words that lead to our blogs. My best one so far is "My Dear Sophie", which happened to be the title I used for my post about Sophie's Crepe in SF. Turns out there is a X-rated porn video by the same title, and seeing how many people actually search for it on Google, my guess is that it's a pretty popular video! Strange coincidences.

I haven't had a whole lot of interesting eats lately - been eating the same rotation of naeng myun, spaghetti, sushi (at Sushi Yoshi these days), and whatever random dish I happen to make. Makes for a boring food blog, eh?

Maybe I'll actually get home at a normal hour tomorrow to make something fun for dinner...

Hmm...I used to write a non-food blog which would pop up on google if you searched for "quitting grad school." Somebody in Korea googled "anne kim" - in Korea! Amazingly, my blog popped up. One that really boggles me is "licking my sister" - how in the world did my blog pop up in that search???

I think your pocky looked tasty. I hope that last sentence doesn't make your blog show up in a dirty google search. :)

Starchmouse,

Licking my sister?! Oh, boy, I don't think I want to know what that person was searching for or why! I had 'orange, oily poop' once too, but 'licking my sister' takes the cake!

I am surprised by how many people are searching for 'debauchery' in this world too. I bet those must have be at least a little bit dirty too!
