1000 Visitor! (& 1001st through 1004th)

Friday, August 01, 2008

Well, we powered it up this morning to find that while we slept, five visitors stopped by to put Capers over the one thousand mark, but none of them left the required comment to make them eligible for the big prize. Fortunately, all those who entered our contest are closely enough related to the author that they are already on the short list for autographed copies of Friday 10:03 when it is finally published.

However, if this may seem a disappointing conclusion to our big contest, our disappointment probably pales compared to that of googlers who come to Capers hoping to find the music video Itsy Bitsy Spider and instead found this. We have managed to frustrate 14 such searchers in the last three weeks alone. So, our next contest: an autographed copy of my novel (when it finally gets into print) to the one thousandth person who visits The Ittsy Bittsy Spider, thinking they'll see EliZe (with thanks to arachnomusicologist Mataikhan for identifying this artist) singing Itsy Bitsy Spider (and leaves a comment).

That artist would be EliZe, born Elise van der Horst, from the Netherlands. I'm a huge fan.

Wow. I didn't know the name of the artist, but I imagine she won't be featured on this year's WOW album.

Mataikhan and Caedmonstia,
Thanks for stopping by. I am now twice as hip as I was before, and someday, when universities institute courses in arachnomusicology, you can say you were there at the very beginning:

Google Search:
"Your search - arachnomusicologist - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:

Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords."
