A. Pismo Clam

Presenting: The legend of the people who found my blog my blog through odd and notable means. It goes like this:
  1. This, for the first time in a long time, is actually a worthwhile Google hit, I should note. It landed someone here, at a post that directly addresses the problem of referring to male ballet dancers. However, in looking at nearby Google hits, I found that not everyone seems to agree with my initial finding that the word cavalier is the term of choice for this type of dancer. More often, I found that cavalier meant specifically "the male partner of a ballerina," and I don't know if that's any different than a full-fledged male ballet dancer. Wikipedia has a list of ballet terms that does not include cavalier and instead offers danseur as the correct term. News to me, but good to know, I suppose.
  2. No.
  3. Another strange but nonetheless appropriate search hit. Read all about Arnold Black Black here.
  4. I'm sorry — I live in Santa Barbara, so you're going to have to narrow it down. Also: Number one hit!
  5. This, and the six that preceded it, are each highly suspicious.
  6. I'm almost positive your too late to enter.
  7. Which is different that a purple nurple, it turns out, and has more to do with this lady.
  8. That would be Brak, of The Brak Show fame.
  9. Number one hit!
  10. Can I please note how astonished I am at the amount of traffic that lands on this blog — on this post, in particular — as a result of a wrongheaded Google involving Top Chef judge Gail Simmons and the words "arm" and "scar" or "scarred" or sometimes even "scared"? It's confounding, because if people have any awareness of Simmons, Top Chef or the person who actually has the scarred arm, Padma Lakshmi, they'd be Googling more sensibly. I mean, Simmons and Lakshmi are the two female non-contestants on the show, but they are so dissimilar that I honestly think it would be impossible for anyone to confuse them.
  11. Anyone? I saw Burn After Reading and have no memory of anything that I would describe as "the purple thing." Was it something Tilda Swinton wore?
  12. She will, alas, remained unnamed and mysterious, it seems.
