P.S., I Am Not a Lunatic

An actual email I sent to the keeper of a well-done blog, Vitamin Q.
Dear sir,

I saw your weblog. It's very entertaining. List-reading i an underrated form of entertainment, I always say. But I thought you'd be interested in how I found your site.

I was checking to see if my archived pages have been loading properly. They should all be able to be found on Google, separately. So to check for one, I searched for a rare combination of words that I knew this particular archived page has. I searched for the words "farkleberry" and "hurdy-gurdy." (These words showed up once repeatedly in one of my entries because I had recently become fascinated by these two words; they're quite odd sounding and I'm happy they're part of English.) I got two hits: your page and my page. I didn't think there'd be any others, but I was wrong.

Anyhow, I just thought you might like to know that, according to Google, your page and my page are the only two on the entire internet that have the words "farkleberry" and "hurdy-gurdy."

The bloggist's name, I realize now having sent the email, is Roddy Lumsden.
