google analytics and other things

So I am truly fascinated with google analytics.  I check it all the time.  For those of you who don't know what it is, let me explain.  Google analytics is a site tracker.  But it is not just any ordinary tracker, you see, with analytics not only do I know how many people view my site I can also find out where they are in the country (as in state and city), what kind of computer and operating system and browser they are using, how long they were on my site, how they got there, and many other things.  Its really interesting.  I currently have visitors from a few states, but I want them all to be green.  That would be great!!!  Not that I really have anything all that important to say nor do I think that what I write is all that interesting either, but it would still be pretty cool.  

The second thing on my mind today as I sit here on blogger and read other blogs and leave comments is this:  when ever you leave a comment here on blogger you are asked to type in a verification code which consists of a bunch of random letters.  Every time I leave a comment and move onto the verification part I have to read out the word.  Sometimes its aloud, sometimes in my head, but none the less I have to sound it out.  Which really isn't all that strange in itself, but the thing is that it is never a real word.  Its just a bunch of random letters, but I consistently find myself trying to say the word "right".  Maybe its not that silly to some of you, but it makes me chuckle a bit about myself.

The third thing is that I have decided I have been watching too much of the TV show Monk.  Monk is a show where the main character has OCD.  Well, last night I was at small group and after dinner I walked into the living room of the host home and something was just off.  I couldn't get comfortable.  Then it hit me, there was a chair missing.  So I tried to settle in again, now knowing what the cause of the uncomfortableness was...but something still wasn't quite right.  Then someone went to mess with the fan and it hit me again, the lights weren't right.  So I had to go and turn the lights to how we normally have them so that I would not be so disturbed.  It was then that I realized that I need to go on Monk restriction.
